A particular school fo fish thought they were better than all the other fish because they could stay together so well. When the leaders turned, all the followers turned at exactly the same time, so it appeared as if they all moved as one. They remained satified with themselves and flitted about along their way, proud of the way they shimmered when the light struck them at times.
One day, the school swam through strange, fearful places, and the fish were too busy appraising their surroundings to pay attention to staying together as a group. A few of the fish strayed and got separated from the school.
They met a woman carrying a pitcher and asked her what she was doing. She said, "I'm going to get water."
They asked her, "What's water?"
She told them, "Don't you know? It's life itself. It's pure, and clear, and perfect in every way. I have to carry some back to my kind as soon as I find some. They are thirsty, and our leader has implored us to give drink to those who need it."
The fish looked at each other and decided that they'd go off in search of water as well. They could carry some back to their school who knew nothing of water. Else why had they never known it themselves. Then maybe they could become the leaders.
They swam the entire ocean in search of this thing called water brfore finally coming across the woman with the pitcher again.
"Did you ever find any water?" they asked her. "We never could."
She laughed! "You're swimming in it! But we need FRESH water, not salt water, like you're swimming in."
Everyone will LEARN the TRUTH:
Beliefs do not alter facts.
All souls were created in the beginning to become companions with their maker.
All souls were given free will.
The third dimension and all therein, the heavens and the earth, was created as a playground for the sons of God.
We became entangled in the third dimension through our self will.
We became separated from God, preferring our ways over God's ways.
The word "sin" means "separation from God."
God made a plan whereby we could find our way back to God.
We come to the earth and to the other realms again and again until we are worthy companions to God.
A certain soul has come to the earth through the ages to teach us the Unity of God
Through Him, who became "The Annointed One," who fulfilled the law, thus becomming the law, who is The Way, The Truth, and The Light, without whom nothing was made that was made, we learn what it takes to become One with God.
We MUST recognize that each soul is a part of the One WHOLE One and "LOVE EACH OTHER!"
The whole of the law is: Love God - Love Each Other.
When we are no longer separated from God, we become One with God.
We become One with God by recognizing the Godhead within everyone we meet, until we are able to recognize It within ourselves.
Everyone will ACT LIKE IT:
Understanding the FACTS and acting according to BELIEFS alters the ORDER of things.
Nations will be united in their recognition of human rights.
Nations will treat each other as equals, all composed of equal constituents, each of whom is a part of God.
Nations will HELP EACH OTHER as two birds do building a nest.
Constituents will treat everyone else as an equal, on a quest to find his or her way back to God.
Constituents will recognize the human right of everyone else to find The Way in his or her own way.
Constituents will HELP EACH OTHER as bees do building a hive.
Everyone will PREFER others over SELF:
SELF is the ONLY sin! (separation from God)
When we recognize God in each other, wars will cease, hate will cease, crime will cease, hunger will cease, homelessness will cease, ignorance will cease."
When we make the way passable for Him, the Son of Man will appear, and the Christ will reign on earth for a thousand years.
Everyone will SEEK to BE a fitting companion for God:
Jesus proved that perfection is attainable.
"Is it not written in your law, 'I said, Ye are Gods'?"
Jesus the Christ, John 10:34 (KJV)
God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.
How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.
Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.
They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are moved.
I have said, Ye are Gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
Asaph, the same soul who became Jesus the Christ, Psalm 82 (KJV)
Is not thy soul as precious in His sight as though ye had taken a city, yea as though ye had directed a nation? For ye are gods in thine own making, if ye hold to Him. Not in self, as of self's disappointment. Know that disappointment is [also] with Him, and He is just as hurt. But be ye rather joyous that ye are counted worthy to be a channel, an opportunity, through which even one soul may find the way. For he that hath saved a soul hath indeed covered a multitude of shortcomings!
Through Edgar Cayce (165-26) November 8, 1937
Apply ye that ye know, for in the application comes understanding. For, as the Master gave, "Ye ARE gods," if ye will use His force of desire and will in His kingdom, but NOT thine own.
Through Edgar Cayce (262-64) June 3, 1934
Hence each soul has a definite influence upon the experiences through which it may be passing. This ye have illustrated in thine own secret organizations, in thy papal activities in the religious associations, and in each vibration. For when ye have set a vibration by the activity of thy SOUL'S force, ye are then either in parallel, in direct accord, or in opposition to constructive force - whatever may be the position or activity of the soul in infinity. For ye ARE gods! But you are becoming devils or real gods!
Through Edgar Cayce (281-30) February 17, 1937
In the application then in the present in these fields of activity should the entity find that channel for not only the greater expression of self that has been gained through its sojourns in the earth, but the greater contentment in that which will make for - in contentment - a growth. While storms and trials are necessary in every soul, as we see manifested in nature, only in contentment does GROWTH make manifest. Not contentment to that point of satisfaction, for a satisfied mind or soul ceases to seek. But only in contentment may it receive and give out. In GIVING does a soul grow, even as a tree, even as a rock, even as a sunset, even as a world GROWS in its influence upon that about it. So has that force grown that we find manifested in the earth that we worship as constructive influence of God, as to the All-Wise purpose, or as to the Holy Spirit, or as to those influences that make alive in giving, in MAKING itself manifest. So are ye gods in the making, saith He that walked among men as the greater teacher of all experiences and ages.
Through Edgar Cayce (699-1) October 18, 1934
Study to show thyself approved unto the Maker that speaks within thee, for He is not in another place afar off. It is not who will call Him down or bring Him up, but lo! He is within thine own heart! Ye are GODS in the making. "Mercy, Lord, mercy," that ye may all act as such!
Through Edgar Cayce (705-1) October 21, 1934
4. ...know first that no urge, no influence is greater than the WILL of the self to DO that as is determined within self to be accomplished in any direction; whether from the physical forces, the mental attributes or a spiritual development.
5. For in the application of that which IS the spiritual force, the spiritual influence, arises that which is the effectual activity in the experience of each and every soul; in the application of that which is its ideal in its relationships to those about self.
6. For as the motivative influence is of the Creative Forces, then its abilities are only limited by the self's OWN indulgences or self's OWN WILL for self's own purposes.
7. For He hath given, "Are ye not gods in thine own right?"
Through Edgar Cayce (1158-2) May 31, 1936
If everyone is ABLE to become a god, then ACT like it!
THINK NOT that because of your place of birth or because of your position in society, or because of your wealth and status, or because of your religion, that you are BETTER THAN anyone else. Rather HELP EACH OTHER to fulfill your potentials, even as did He, who thought it not robbery to make himself equal to God, but made himself of no estate that he might show us The Way.
It requires rather the sincerity of the persons, and let them rather be grounded in the spirit of truth, of God, rather than in the knowledge of the material. For what is the anatomical structure of the body? No two are alike. Do you ever find two blades of grass alike? Ever find two leaves on a tree alike? No. But all are the handiwork of God. So, with individual souls, with their complexities of activity. And each soul must know itself to be itself and yet one with God. That's Christianity!
Through Edgar Cayce (254-114) October 22, 1943
...the purpose of the heart is to know YOURSELF to BE yourself and yet one with God, even as Jesus.
Through Edgar Cayce (281-37) September 8, 1937
26. (Q) Explain the beginning of the entity, and the reason for it.
(A) In an explanation of an entity's entering into an earth's plane, this may come for the use of many:
An ENTITY in an earth's experience, as this entity, is a sum total of all that MADE in the material plane, with the ability to use all for a GLORIFICATION of the Creative Forces that are manifested in same.
As the development of the earth as a sphere BECAME a dwelling place, capable of caring for the conditions to which an entity might assume its abode in any form, the entity was among those SOULS given to such entities to MANIFEST that divine IN the earth's plane, and chose of itself to enter, that it might - of itself - become a portion of same, to show forth that held INNATE AND manifested within self of the divine itself. See?
Entering, then, through the development of the forces that brought into being the forces that manifest through and about that known as the earth, passing from period to period, sphere to sphere, as the entity builds that which would make itself one WITH that Creative Force, from sphere to sphere, gathering ALL then in the present, being a sum total of that first cause, with that the entity has builded in its soul THROUGH its sojourn in ALL of the spheres, INCLUDING the earth's material forces that the entity has EXPERIENCED. As the entity goes on and on, and passes through these spheres - the sun, the planets, the earth - it develops TOWARDS - taking all, being a portion of all, MANIFESTING all - to carry that back to that source from whence it came; giving the ability to become one WITH the whole, yet NOT the whole, and knowing self to be itself, a portion OF the whole, and one WITH God
Through Edgar Cayce (413-1) February 5, 1931
13. (Q) Explain the harmony between the "Atonement of Christ" and Re-incarnation.
(A) That as is the experience must be met in the activity of that soul, that is an INDIVIDUALITY, that may be one WITH God yet NOT God - yet one WITH Him in its individuality. Hence, as the Son of man - made in the flesh - in Adam brought sin, or separation from God - in the last Adam, the Christ, brought that AT-ONEMENT WITH God. So does this, then, make the at-onement with those that, as He, make themselves - through Him - in the same activity, the same at-onement, WITH Him.
Through Edgar Cayce (452-3) August 25, 1932
6. (Q) Is it the destiny of every spiritual entity to eventually become one with God?
(A) Unless that entity wills its banishment. As is given with man, in the giving of the soul, the will, wherewith to manifest in the entity, whether spiritual, whether material. With that, the entity, either spiritual or physical, may banish itself. Again a compliance with law; as has been given, Hell [was] prepared for Satan and his angels, yet God has not WILLED that ANY soul should perish. Giving of will to His creation, Man, that man might be one with Him, giving man the privilege of exercising his (man's) will, or exercising His (God's) will to be one with Him.
Through Edgar Cayce (900-20) January 15, 1925
...but as is purposed from the Creative Forces themselves - that each soul shall hold to that which makes it (that soul) as ONE with God, and a god itself.
Through Edgar Cayce (900-20) January 15, 1925
13. As to what the entity has done about God, then, brings it INTO relationship WITH the universe under certain environments; with the characteristics, with the emotions, with the desires. That the will is the birthright, that the entity might be one with God, is the gift to each child, to each son, to each daughter; that they may become one with Him, yet conscious of being themselves
Through Edgar Cayce (900-20) December 22, 1938
Know that no entity enters a material experience by chance. Souls are purposeful in their seeking, and it is ever for self or for the glory of the ideal. If the ideal is self, though many channels may be used, it is still self-exaltation being sought. For the will is the that gift of the Creator, enabling a soul to be one with God - or in its own wisdom or own foolishness - to destroy its own self.
Through Edgar Cayce (3486-1) November 22, 1943
Thus in patience and persistence, do ye learn and become aware of thy soul being as one with God.
Through Edgar Cayce (5155-1) May 23, 1944
Jesus never said, "Worship me."
Worship God! Be like Jesus!
As has been and is being understood by many, there are changes being wrought in the nation, a well as in the inter-relationships with other nations.
All of these may be considered from the one angle.
It is also understood, comprehended by some, that a new order of conditions is to arise; that there must be many a purging in high places as well as low; that there must be the greater consideration of each individual, each soul being his brother's keeper.
There will then come about those circumstances in the political, the economic and the whole relationships where there will be a leveling - or a greater comprehension of this need.
For as the time or the period draws near for these changes that come with the new order, it behooves all of those who have an ideal - as individuals, as well as groups or societies or organizations, to be practising, applying same in their experience - and their relationships as one to another.
For unless these are up and doing, then there must indeed be a new order in THEIR relationships and their activities.
For His ways will carry through. For as He gave, "Though the heavens and the earth may pass away, my word will NOT pass away."
All too often has this message been forgotten in the pulpits and in the organizations, not only in the national relationships but in the international relationships.
And as the dealings are as one to another, unless these are in keeping with those tenets they must fail; for all power in heaven and in earth hath been given into His hands.
Then as we approach all phases of human relationships, these must be taken into consideration.
And there CANNOT be one measuring stick for the laborer in the field and the man behind the counter, and another for the man behind the money changers. ALL are equal - not only under the material law but under the SPIRITUAL.
And HIS laws, HIS will, will not come to naught!
Though there may come those periods when there will be great stress, as brother rises against brother, as group or sect or race rises against race - yet the leveling must come.
And ONLY those who have set their ideal in Him and practised it in their dealings with their fellow man may expect to survive the wrath of the Lord.
In thy dealings, then - whether at home, in thy dealings with state or the national situations, or the international affairs - there must come ALL under that purpose, that desire.
And then there should be, there WILL be those rising to power that are able to meet the needs. For none are in power but that have been given the opportunity by the will of the Father - from which all power emanates.
Hence those will be leveled with the purpose, "My word shall NOT fail!"
Through Edgar Cayce (3976-18) June 20, 1938
Hence this is not, in the immediate, the time for the joining definitely with any individual group's activity other than that which stands alone on Christ and Christ's principles.
For, with those changes that will be wrought, Americanism -the ism - with the universal thought that is expressed and manifested in the brotherhood of man into group thought, as expressed by the Masonic Order, will be the eventual rule in the settlement of affairs in the world.
Not that the world is to become a Masonic order, but the principles that are embraced in same will be the basis upon which the new order of peace is to be established in '44 and '45.
When these things are considered, then, it is self-evident that individuals should be up and doing. Especially the entity, with its abilities, has definite work to do in the present.
The entity has the ability to work with or through individual groups, - not as a propagandist, but - as has been so oft indicated - do not magnify the differences of various groups, but rather UNIFY the sameness as expressed in many of them that hold to the principles as given in Him.
For, the time is at hand when individuals who have - as this entity - seen and given so much, and experienced so much as to the meaning of the advent of the Son of man, the Prince of Peace, the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings, must now more than ever magnify and glorify Him in the relationships of individuals one to another.
There are so many groups that have such as a background, yet their working hypothesis, their working labels are under influences that belie that principle in its APPLICATION to individuals.
All of these should be taken into consideration by this entity; and its abilities as a speaker, its abilities as a writer should be directed in those conditions and affairs that will more and more unite seekers in every phase of life, in every position, in every portion of the country, to that standard set by Him. Not as in a church, not as in an ism or cult, but in that every soul does the best he can where he is - and all with one ideal: "I am my brother's keeper - Christ the Lord is my brother!
Through Edgar Cayce (1152-11) August 13, 1941
If there will be considered carefully that which is the basis upon which there must become adjustments to the worlds, to the nations, and apply same in SELF'S own experience, the SPIRITUAL awakening must be the basis for all activities - whether individual, group, masses, nation, or world.
Through Edgar Cayce (270-29) August 2, 1932
Wake up, ye Sadducees, ye fundamentalists, and conspiratory theorists! In order for the Son of Man to return, ALL must be fulfilled. Why fear ye the new order? It will be His order, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Bring it on!
