An Inside Story 58
TWO WORLDS 6…
EXPLAINING the creation of the physical universe is well-nigh impossible for any of us to do, although a few rare humans have given it a damn good try. One such man was Edgar Cayce (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) who demonstrated the uncanny ability to put himself into some kind of self-induced sleep state by lying down on a couch, closing his eyes, and folding his hands over his stomach.
This state of relaxation and meditation enabled him to place his mind in contact with all time and space. From this state he could respond to questions as diverse as, “What are the secrets of the universe?” to “How can I remove a wart?” Once out of his trance however, he couldn’t remember a thing.
His responses to these questions came to be called “readings” and contained insights so valuable that even to this day individuals have found practical help for everything from maintaining a well-balanced diet and improving human relationships to overcoming life-threatening illnesses and experiencing a closer walk with God.
Following is an edited excerpt of the creation of the physical universe as described by the ‘Sleeping Prophet’, Edgar Cayce.
“Man demands a beginning and a boundary, so in the beginning there was a sea of spirit, and it filled all space. It was static, content – aware of itself, a giant resting on the bosom of its thoughts, contemplating that which it was.
Then it moved. It withdrew into itself, until all space was empty and that which had filled it was shining from its centre, a restless seething mind.
This was the individuality of the spirit – this was what it discovered itself to be when it awakened – this was God. God desired to express Himself and He desired companionship therefore, He projected from Himself the cosmos and souls.
In the Eternal Realm of the Absolute, (The spiritual world) God was omnipotent, (all powerful) but things were different in the relative physical world of time and space that was in God’s dream (creation).
All was new to God. Nevertheless, God was overjoyed at the prospect of creating a new world and set about attempting to manifest an environment that would allow God to experience Himself in a world of ‘others’.”…
