If you believe that a leaf is a piece of physical matter without consciousness, without glory, then you will learn nothing from it.
When you understand what you are, then... you will find All-That-Is within yourselves.
Seth: "You must learn how to use the consciousness that is yourself.
You said earlier that everyone is looking to find themselves, and as our regular students should know, there is only one place to look, and you begin with yourself. All-That-Is is not male or female, and I am sorry to upset anyone. All-That-Is is indeed energy and yet all energy is individualized so you are not dealing merely with impersonal energy but neither are you dealing with a personality in the terms usually used. For you do not understand as yet what personality is, and when you understand what you are, then you will have some small glimmering of what All-That-Is is and basically you will find All-That-Is within yourselves.
You will find All-That-Is also within a leaf and within a flower. But, only when you try to understand what a leaf and a flower are. If you believe that a leaf is a piece of physical matter without consciousness, without glory, then you will learn nothing from it. But, if you realize that a leaf is a portion of All-That-Is then you will realize what communion is."
