    This book is so small, and each chapter is a single session with notes - which I don't read anyway. Usually. Yet, this book is so great because I can read just a select page or two and feel invigorated. Really feel like life is a canvas to which I paint, and prove it to myself by manifesting my desires more consciouslly, more artistically.

    Not as explosive as Seth Speaks or The Nature of Personal Reality, but still worth reading. One can easily finish this in a day or two, and apply the knowledge for years to come.

    After having read through three of Seth–Jane Roberts–Robert Butts books, I can say with confidence that these works do not bring anything useful to our learning and self-development. Seth just rambles on with complex language about nothing in particular; or he is all over the place. 40% of the book is taken up with Butts’ own commentary on their day to day life and Seth’s comments affecting their private lives.

But none of these books give you anything groundbreaking or inspirational with regards to techniques or intricate studies of various aspects of the mind. They are just high-horse, condescending ramblings with flowery language. Seth does sprinkle the importance of belief here and there. But we didn’t need mammoth sessions from an ET to know that when we have so many non-channelled human teachers explaining it clearer over the centuries.

    Important, but denser than Abraham and less-readable. This is mostly due to details Seth discusses that we need the backstory to. If you're a fan, you won't mind. If you want to be a fan, but the obscurity puts you off, try Abraham first. Important, but denser than Abraham and less-readable.

    While most Seth books are an easy 5/5, this one felt like a 2 page idea stretched into a book.

But it is true that the more mundane topics are supposed to be employed as analogies for the broader thought. That's how it has been in many of the books--so much discussion about which house Robert and Jane should decide to buy!--Just here, in this final book, it is the example material proliferating while the message delivery shrinks. As a biography of this fascinating couple, this title can't be missed (but it should come near the end). It has some personal moments, some shocking reveals, and that kind of late-stage self-explanation that makes a body of work honest, even if you know the glory days are way past on these pages. Interesting that this book brings back the tone of the first books, when they were fooling around with a Ouija board, just gabbing with Seth, so forth... the white heat in the middle: Seth is dictating entire books as a finished draft right off the cuff. They say hello, then Seth Speaks. But in the first few books, their style was not so refined. There were Q&A's, stuff that felt like chit-chat, and not as much material per book. And that is the feeling here--Jane refers to them as "maintenance sessions" in this book: Not formal dictation, not private stuff for Robert and Jane, but something more like isolated analogies and what you might call the unenumerated rights of Consciousness. Fun but not too challenging. Really it should be subtitled "A Companion to Dreams, Evolution, and Value Fulfillment" as that is constantly mentioned as "the book Seth is currently working on." The companion volume element provides some behind-the-scenes richness. Pain and understanding (And you know what this is, right--a being above linear time visiting short-sighted mortals near their end, saying, "Your portion, your color in the tapestry of all existence, has reached its narrow, fading tip at this point. But I'm still right here like I was at the 'beginning.'") It feels like being at your own funeral, then realizing you are actually still present in every second of the life you thought you left. Much love to Jane and Robert. These books are totemic, exceptional sources of this subtle energy that is the paragon of potential energy, the perfection of the written word to exist as the source of some imminent action by those who read it. That action is changing the mind. An understanding that snaps mortal life into a new joyful habit, an infinite direction. The only thing was the cover. It was so bad, like a birthday card from grandma, that I had to modpodge my own new cover on there. If you buy this book, please modify or remove the cover before you start reading it, otherwise any dignified information will have a cloying flavor.

    The audiobook version is well-performed, with voice actors for Jane Roberts, Seth, and Robert Butts, along with 2 other voice actors for smaller parts. This was an ingenious approach that clarifies who is responsible for what information. All voice actors are good.

This was an ingenious approach that clarifies who is responsible for what information. All voice actors are good. In other of Jane`s books, she has mentioned a part of her psyche that is crystalline-cold emotionally and is likely the part of her responsible both for her great productivity and her painful demise. By "part of her psyche," I`m not referring to a split personality as in schizophrenia, but a component of a many-faceted psyche that together comprises her identity. This part of her is rigid in its demands that she focuses all her energies on work. I suspect that many of us have a similar element at work within us, those who are ambitious and driven to produce at all costs. This part of her psyche likely interfered with other parts of her psyche that could have led to a longer and happier life. In The Magical Approach, Seth simplifies his description into two basic approaches: the Rational and the Creative. The rational approach is largely mechanical in nature, best applied to repetitive tasks, logic, reasoning, and scientific study. The Creative Approach is non-linear, non-repetitive, insightful, and playful in nature. While both approaches can and should be applied to daily life, the creative approach can have the most beneficial results in living a well-rounded, happy, and self-aware life.

    woof! It’s not as if I don’t value this book, for I do. And I’m glad I read it but I was able to get through it only by scanning. I appreciated “Seth’s “ words. I loved Jane’s poem published at the very beginning of the book. I found the rest to be tedious to read and frankly of little eg no interest to me. I am curious about her book on developing ESP which I think will help open me up.

    Interesting, but ultimately unsatisfying. The book promises a lot of information, but then sort of ends abruptly. I'm afraid this has to do with Jane being very sick.

    The Seth books were recommended by a friend and I have this one and also The original one... which I'm hoping is more direct and not so rambling. A lot of commentary and analysis of Jane's physical state and not a lot of what the magical approach is, or about creative living.
