Physical Experiences Are Filtered Down Soul Experiences
by Jane Roberts
The soul perceives all
experience directly. Most experiences of which you are aware come packaged
in physical wrapping, and you take the wrapping for the experience itself
and do not think of looking inside. The world that you know is one of
the infinite materializations taken by consciousness, and as such it is
The soul, however, does not need to follow the laws and principles that
are a part of the physical reality, and it does not depend upon physical
perception... The soul's perceptions are not dependent upon time, because
time is a physical camouflage and does not apply to nonphys-ical reality...
Now, each event of which you are aware is already a translation of an
inner event, a psychic or mental event that is perceived by the soul directly,
but translated by the physically oriented portions of the self into physical
sense terms.. It goes without saying then that the soul does not require
a physical body for purposes of perception; that perception is not dependent
upon physical senses; that experience continues whether or not you are
in this life or another; and also that the soul's basic methods of perception
are also operating within you now even as you read this book. It also
follows that your experience within the physical system is dependent upon
a physical form and physical sensesÑand, because these interpret
reality and translate it into physical data. It also follows that some
hints of the soul's direct experience can be gained by momentarily switching
the physical senses offÑby refusing to use them as perceptors,
and falling back upon other methods.
It [experience] exists then, "eternally," separated form the
physical clothing that you need in order to understand it. Physical existence
is one way in which the soul chooses to experience its own actuality.
The soul, in other words, has created a world for you to inhabit, to changeÑa
complete sphere of activity in which new developments and indeed new forms
of consciousness can emerge.
