Start your review of The Way Toward Health: A Seth Book
I was incredibly moved by this most personal and meticulously recorded account of the last months of Jane Robert’s life. Her struggles and deeply rooted beliefs clearly illustrate the concepts that Seth teaches over and over again. How our beliefs create our reality. How our ideas about ourselves alter the very fabric and quality of our existence. One of the biggest lessons I learned was how every cell in our body is constantly striving towards it’s fullest potential of expression, health and vi ...more

Be More Spontaneous! Life is Energy and energy changes forms, moves and is agile. Enjoy your strength and power, every problem has a solution.

Wow……(5-minute pause)
"The Way Toward Health" should have been titled, The Way Toward Death.

This was not an easy read, to watch Jane get sick and die at age 55. But, it was however illuminating, when you began to understand what this book was really teaching. It was a backdoor view of what could happen if we don't change our thoughts or beliefs.

Not as good as her other dictated books, but interesting due to the significance of when it was delivered - as Jane Roberts was dying in the hospital. There is a great deal of biographical detail written by her husband, Robert Butts, which help to place this book in perspective. The sad thing is that she suffered and died from a treatable condition - and a condition that she could have changed herself if she had been able to change her fundamental outlook on life getting in the way of production ...more

Seth recommends that the Seth Material be read in order of publication, as each book builds on the last. Since this is the last book published, I obviously jumped ahead! What an interesting look at the channeler Jane, as she chooses to use her own health issues, which ultimately led, at the end of the book, to her passing! This despite being the instrument by which the unembodied entity, known as Seth, communicated to us, on this earthly plane. I came away with an appreciation that each of our j ...more
Overall, I really liked this book. This book was far less substantive than the other Seth books due to the extensive amount of notes by Robert Butts making up mutch of the text. If the notes were removed, the Seth material would probably only take up 100 pages of the 356 of the total. The book is very interesting, however, for the incredible personal information provided by Mr. Butts' notes. This is the very last material that Jane received from Seth and provides a look into what Seth was giving ...more

Shelves: metaphysical
Possibly to some an 'emotional read'. It will undoubtedly give the avid 'Seth' reader 'mixed feelings' as to how Jane Roberts coped with her long illness, that eventually lead to her death. After her passing her husband in the book shares the intimate story of Jane's final days, and the teachings that Seth continued to give during that time... ...more

This is a hard one to read, but it is even harder to visualize what that hospital room must have looked like with that pathetic, mangled creature, a bag of infected bones covered in bedsores, dictating her books to the bitter end.

This book is one of the slowest reads I have found, but it is filled with many valuable insights that I am glad to have sifted through. Although sometimes subtle in their profundity, I believe some of the wisdom contained in this book is essential to how we approach our own healing.

This was a hard book to read. I just wanted Jane to create a different reality.
