The Sleeping Prophet had access to wisdom from the other side of the veil through a meditative state he could induce. Cayce used this remarkable gift to help thousands.
“Christ is not a man,” declares Cayce.
John Van Auken, Director of A.R.E., the Association of Research and Enlightenment or the Edgar Cayce Institute, explains more in this essay about Jesus the Christ:
“Cayce’s perspective on Jesus Christ is much different from the church’s and even his own outer self’s. Cayce and his family were Bible-reading Christians. Yet, when he set aside his outer self and lifted his deeper mind into the Oneness with what the readings called the “Universal Consciousness,” a new perspective on Jesus Christ came through him to us; a perspective that is greater than one incarnation and beyond three-dimensional limitations.
From this perspective Christ is the Word, the Logos, the universal light of God manifested through an incarnate person.
During a life reading, Cayce states:
“As an entity, a soul, a mind, enters [the spiritual dimensions] put about self the cloak, the garment, yea the mantle of Christ; not as a man, not as an individual but the CHRIST; ¬ that universal consciousness of love that we see manifested in those who have forgotten self but, as Jesus, give themselves that others may know the truth.”
Here we see Cayce equating Christ with “the universal consciousness of love.”
In her book, Many Mansions (introduction by Hugh Lynn Cayce, Edgar’s son), Cayce scholar Gina Cerminara, Ph.D., says:
“For almost twenty centuries, the moral sense of the Western world has been blunted by a theology which teaches the vicarious atonement of sin through Christ, the Son of God.
Even skeptics, in the face of the strange events and the tremendous influence that emanated from this man, may concede that Christ was, in a sense, a Son of God and that – noble and compassionate – he lived and died so that men might be free.
But more and more, in the light of the advances of modern physics, people are coming to feel that all life in the universe, down to the minutest power-charged atom, is in essence related to each other life in the universe by virtue of a common sustaining source in one central energy, or God.
By this view it seems necessary to conclude that all living things, and all men and women, are the sons of God – like rays from some vast central sun. It can be felt then that perhaps the personality called Jesus was different from us only in that he was closer to the central light than we are.”
Or, as Jesus states in A Course in Miracles, “I don’t have anything you don’t have; I just don’t have anything else.”
Easter: the Great Demonstration
Unity minister of NYC, and spiritual teacher and author, Eric Butterworth teaches us:
“Every year on Easter morning, millions of people throughout the Christian world proclaim the words, “He is risen, Hallelujah, He is Risen.”
If everyone would realize that “He is risen in me, which enables me to see that which is risen in every person in the world,” we would see a manifestation of “peace on earth, good will toward men.”
If He is risen, then He has demonstrated the divine of you and the divine of every person in the world.
Dwelling on that first Easter in the right spirit, looking toward the dawn, and “looking up” to the Spirit indwelling, we can see beyond appearances – the stones of human limitations are rolled away.
We no longer see the barriers of prejudice or class distinction; we are no longer hampered by the iron curtains between nations or minds. We may see from the divinity in ourselves; and we can see that same divinity in other people – all people.
Did Jesus actually rise bodily from the dead? It is unthinkable, unscientific, impossible!
Maybe the problem is in trying to understand the phenomenon in the framework of human experience. Spiritual things must be spiritually discerned. Man lives in a human body and in a physical world.
The Easter mystery must lie in another dimension. How can we be expected to understand when most of us are still struggling to understand life in a three-dimensional world?
Easter is not a passport to another world, it is a quality of perception for this one. It is not just a day when we recall how Jesus rose from the dead. It is a time to take a new look at ourselves and contemplate the Divinity in us, the depths of our own innate God-potential. It is a time to reappraise the principle that makes all overcoming possible.”
