Excerpt

So thou in thine experience in the present, as ye may be questioned as to thy gentleness to this or that experience of individual activities, become aware of those experiences through which ye passed, even there – as not only the sister in the flesh of Jesus but as the helpmeet to a heathen; yea, a Roman!

Yet the foolishness of the world and of the earth is the wisdom of God! Just as the foolishness of man may be turned into the wisdom of the ages, the wisdom of God.

For the wisdom is indeed to be  willing to be led by the Spirit of GOD rather than to be guided by thine own  concept OF paralleling or classifying or reasoning.

For the worldly-wise oft destroy themselves, as ye saw among the leaders of thine own peoples, as ye saw among those in  authority among thine own associates. And these ye see oft.

But even as He, thy Brother; though He wept bodily over Jerusalem, though He sighed with the very blood of His body in Gethsemane, He smiled upon the Cross – as He smiles upon  thee and gives, “I am with thee; be not afraid, it is I – even I who AM the Life, who AM the Way, who AM the Word!”

And in Him, (and “In me,” as He gave) ye can put thy trust.

“Were it not so, I would have told you. I prepare a place for those that are faithful, are patient, that they – too – may be with me as from  the foundations of the earth. Ye have been, even as I, in and out – in the  shadow, in the light; yet the purpose, the desire of the soul itself is to be at  an at-onement with Him.”

(Q) Does this mean that the world will evolve into bringing souls into the world in the manner that Mary did?
(A) Souls will evolve into the manner to be able to bring into the world souls, even as Mary did.

And these may come as the souls of men and  women become more and more aware that these channels, these temples of the body are INDEED the temple of the living God and may be used for those communications with God, the Father of the souls of men!

(Q) Is it true that Jesus is the only  begotten son of God, and what does this mean?
(A) In this to give the  full concept is to give the history then of all those who have entered into flesh WITHOUT that act which man knows as copulation. For as those experiences Jesus, known as Jesus, the brother of this entity, came into the earth, the FIRST that were of the sons of God to enter flesh, THERE the first and only begotten of God.

Again, as names would say, Enoch walked with God, became aware of God in his movements – STILL that entity, that SOUL called Jesus – as  Melchizedek, without father, without mother, came – STILL the soul of Jesus; the portion of God that manifests.
But each son, each daughter, through these very acts of the only begotten, of the son of Mary, of the first in the earth, of that without father and without mother, without days, without years – becomes  then as the elder brother to all who are BORN in the earth, as the maker, as the creator, as the first, as the last; as the beginning, as the end of man’s soul’s experience through the earth and throughout the spheres of consciousness in and  about the earth.

Thus is He the only begotten, the firstborn, the first to know flesh, the first to purify it.

And so man in his concepts, in his understandings, in his wisdom of God, purifies – here a little, there a little.

Meeting of the Youngsters Jesus and John the Baptist

Edgar Cayce’s Story of Jesus by Jeffrey Furst

The Early Years and Ministry pp. 216 – 219

Q. Aside from the Apostles, what were the reactions of people who were closely related to Jesus? For example, you have mentioned that He had two brothers and a sister. We know that James and Jude became Apostles, and that James – later referred to as James the Less – was appointed the head of the church. But what of Ruth? Would you please fill in some details of her life and her reaction to Jesus?

A. With the return of Joseph and Mary to Palestine from the Egyptian sojourn, and with their return to active service among the peoples, there was created quite a different environ for Joseph and Mary.

For soon after the return – that (return) recorded in Holy Writ, from the journey to the city for the period of the Passover – we find that James, the elder brother of the entity Ruth, was born into that experience.

In the next year, after there had been the beginnings of the teaching of Jesus by the Wise Men of the East and His sojourn in Persia, India – and when those activities brought about the change in the material or financial status of the family – Ruth then was born in the city of Capernaum; and (she was) surrounded by such activities as befitted the peoples of that period, that day.

There was awe in the minds of the people as to what had taken place at the birth of the mother – Mary’s – first son. Hence, the entity, Ruth, was rather in awe of the suggestions, the intimations which surrounded that experience and questioned the mother concerning same. As the entity grew into maidenhood, and after the birth of Jude, then the death of Joseph brought that brother – Jesus – home! And there were those activities which surrounded the entity (Ruth) concerning that unknown, that strange kinsman – that kinsman whom the people held in awe, yet about whom some said many unkind things.

With the departure of this brother to Egypt for the final initiations or teachings, with John – another kinsman who had been spoken of and held in awe, since his (John’s) mother had been a chosen vessel by the priests of the Essenes, and since he, John was the lineal descendant of the high priests of the Jews – we find that in the entity’s latter teens such ponderings brought a great many disturbing influences to the entity, Ruth … Hence we find the entity was divided in thought and activity between the tenets held by the elder brother, James, those held by the mother, and the actual activities of the entity as one among a people who were being questioned, and doubted. Then with the return of John, the cousin, and the beginning of his ministry – one who had renounced his position as a priest, who might serve in the temple, in order to become an outcast and a teacher in the wilderness – there was brought consternation to the entity, Ruth.

And again there was a questioning of the mother as to those experiences of the mother preceding the birth of that (brother) Jesus.

Then (came) the return of Jesus to the Palestine Land, after those periods of the tests in the wilderness, after His meeting with John; and then the return to Capernaum and the teaching which He, Jesus, accorded there. The entity (Ruth) then, for the first time, heard His first utterances in the synagogue: as to the prophecies of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and the teachings of the lesser prophets, and as to how they applied to the experiences of that day.

Returning from this meeting, where a tumult was raised owing to the utterances of that new teacher, the entity encountered the entity, Philoas – a collector, not in the sense of the “taker in,” but the supervisor (overseer or examiner) as to the abilities of various individuals in various positions to pay that tribute – a Roman. Because of her beauty, their mutual interest in helping the less fortunate, and the natural consequence of their ages, there was brought about a bond of sympathy between the two.

In her haste to acquaint the mother with the sayings of that teacher, her brother, of whom so much had been asked, by whom so much had been said but so little understood by Ruth, the entity (Ruth) with those two companions (Philoas and a doctor friend) went to Mary, warning her of the possible entanglements with those new authorities – or the Roman activities. (1158)

(Thus, Philoas, the Roman) came in close contact with those of the household from which the Master had gone out, becoming associated with and later married to (and by the Master) the sister of the Master – the only sister, who had received education in Greece and Rome, because of the family’s associations with the sects, and the Jews, and a portion that favoured the Romans. (1151)

For it is not, as so oft considered, that the family of the Master lacked material opportunities, for from many sources there had come opportunities for those in the household of the Master to have greater training. (1179)

In the latter portion of the entity’s (Ruth’s) sojourn, while children were born in Rome, during those activities of the entity and the companion (Philoas), much aid was brought to those in the Roman experience who accepted the new teachings. Much that gave help and strength to bear the persecutions later was established in the hearts and the minds and the experiences of those peoples during the entity’s sojourn … For she did bring the heart of the people to Him as she did bring the younger brother (Jude) – though he faltered much – as she did give strength to the elder brother to head the church under all those vicissitudes of distress without, turmoils within. (1158)

However, these times of enlightenment and awakening were not to pass peacefully. The Romans began to move against this growing new group that they considered to be nothing more than troublemakers. Nimmuo was present at one such event when James, the brother of Jesus, was chosen as head of the new church along with Peter. She witnessed how the other James and his brother John, the sons of Zebedee, had so stirred the spirit of the crowds that the Romans became afraid of the mass meeting and attacked with swords drawn, killing James and many others during the riot, and eventually exiling John to Patmos. These two sons of Zebedee had long been called “the Sons of Thunder” and the Romans had had enough of them. From this moment on the followers of the humble Nazarene would be persecuted by the authorities.

Revisiting James, brother of Jesus

Regarding the letter Was

James the brother of Jesus

(Apr-Jun ’10), I am in agreement

as to being aware of

the source of information

presented. Therefore, Sister

Mary of Agreda’s experience

should also be considered.

As to Christ Jesus’ choice for

John to care for his mother; he

knew this young man was the

best choice – he was the only

Disciple not murdered. Edgar

Cayce’s reading 1151 [paraphrased]

states: he (a Roman

overseer) was the husband of

Ruth, Jesus’ sister. Another

reading states that Ruth had

a brother James.

The story is also rich in characters and events not included in the biblical accounts. For example, consider Ruth the sister of Jesus who married a roman (Philoas), the man who wrote the report that got Pontius Pilate recalled. Speaking of Pilate, perhaps his hesitation to condemn Jesus to death was more than just his wife’s bad dream. Cayce states that Jesus healed his epileptic son.

Vibrations and Soul Expression

By Kevin J. Todeschi and Henry Reed, PhD

Science begins to confirm Edgar Cayce’s teaching that thoughts create vibrations that can alter the physical world.

http://www.edgarcayce.org/are/pdf/vi07072010.pdf

Excerpt

When energy combines with patterns of thought, some new unique form of creation takes place.

There’s a perfect example from Scripture of how a person’s vibration can affect someone else. In Mark 5:24-34 is the story of a woman who suffered for 12 years with a physical ailment, spending much time and all her resources trying to get well.

She had heard about the teachings of Jesus and as a last resort she decided to find him. She simply touched the hem of his robe and she became well.
How was that possible? Because the garment He wore had picked up His energy, and when the woman touched the robe, the vibrations of that energy passed into her and effected a healing.
It’s important to realize that it’s not just the garment of someone like Jesus that picks up energy. It’s every piece of clothing we wear; it’s all of our surroundings; it’s every strand of hair on our heads; it’s every cell in our body.

And these vibrations originate not only from our current attitudes and emotions, but also from the history of the soul’s experiences.
Research in several laboratories has confirmed that it is possible to “imprint” material with thoughts or intentions so that the material shows a physical effect of such imprinting.

Blessing water with healing intent, for example, changes the crystalline structure of the water.

While scientific theory explaining the process lags behind, evidence accumulates concerning its reality.

It is common to hear of “quantum” theories, as scientists attempt to understand the role of consciousness in the relationship between energy and matter.
The Edgar Cayce material offers a perspective on this question – that mental patterns precipitate energy into material forms.

When energy combines with patterns of thought, some new unique form of creation takes place.

No matter how this process will be ultimately understood, it is clear that material objects have a “memory” of the information contained in vibrational influences.

The Dual Nature of Electron and the Observer Effect on Matter

http://www.suite101.com/content/the-dual-nature-of-electron-and-the-observer-effect-on-it-a231336

The very act of observing or measuring which slit it went through meant it only went through one, not both. The electron decided to act differently as if it were aware it was being watched. The observer actually collapsed the wave function simply by observing it (Kang).

It has been suggested that one’s thoughts are intangible, wave-like phenomenon, just like the electron; and as such, it may be possible to observe one’s thoughts, thus collapsing them into reality (Rosenblum). If this the case, it is safe to conclude that one is truly responsible for creating one’s reality, sometimes, in a not-so-obvious way.

Thoughts are Things

http://www.edgarcayce.org/ps2/innervision_mind_J_Van_Auken.html

Another fundamental Cayce teaching is: “Thoughts are things, and as their currents run they become miracles or crimes in the experiences of individual life.”

For the deeply attuned Cayce, thoughts were as real as actions. In fact, during his readings from the Book of Life, he had to strain to determine whether the person he was reading for had actually done something or had just thought about doing it! “Thoughts are things; just as the Mind is as concrete as a post or tree,” and the Akashic Record, the Book of Life, records them as such.

This is a hard one to hear. The first time I read it, it pained me to think how many times my thoughts had done harm to another and placed a negative influence in the Collective Mind. Watching our thoughts is important.

A long time ago, I read a Cayce reading which told the tale of an ancient, powerful woman whose thoughts were equally powerful.

When she realized the harm she had caused others with her thoughts, she was so distraught, she laid down and willed herself to die.

Fouad Ajami and Zuhdi Jasser Give Me Hope

February 5, 2011

 

Those of us who followed the uprising in Iran closely know what happened and what continues to happen there.

Young men and women jailed, tortured, raped repeatedly, some were raped until they died. Disappeared. Parents frantically searching for their children, never to be seen or heard from again. Hanged.

How many times have uprisings, revolutions in Muslim countries led to bitter, tragic ends?

the freeze frame picture of the murdered woman is the face of the protesters.

i can’t think of anything more. a picture is more than a thousand words.

So true, so true!

I cannot get that image out of my head.

And I hope I never do.

I want to know all about her.

Her parents, any siblings or children?

Was she in love?

Who was that man who was so distraught bending over her broken body?

Who was the older man?

That image of her is like a modern day Pieta.

She is the Christ image.

And …

For me, personally, I have been very reluctant to cheer the protestors in Egypt.  Until now.

http://www.aifdemocracy.org/about/members.php

M. Zuhdi Jasser, M.D. is the President and Founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD). A devout Muslim, Dr. Jasser founded AIFD in the wake of the 9/11 attacks on the United States as an effort to provide an American Muslim voice advocating for the preservation of the founding principles of the United States Consitution, liberty and freedom, and the separation of mosque and state.

I haven’t watched this yet, but I’m very interested in what Dr. Jasser has to say, especially on the crisis in Egypt.

Dr. Jasser comes in around 18:15.

Religious Guidance
Guest – Dr Zuhdi Jasser, President of American Islamic Forum on Democracy
  • Glenn commented that Dr Jasser is the only one he has heard telling them.
  • Glenn asked Dr Jasser about the current spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • Dr Jasser replied that the one they respond to:
    • A little over 80 years old.
    • He reaches over 80 million Muslims per week on Al Jesera.
    • Has a web site that he gives fatwas, or religious rulings to.
    • America has been asleep to the creeping growth of secular fascism and the theocratic fascists.
  • A video was shown of this cleric calling for the killing of all Jews during a religious ceremony.
  • Another video of the spiritual leader of political Islam was shown.  The English translation had that Hitler put the Jews in their place and the next time he hopes it will be by believers (Muslims).
A War of Ideas
Dr Jasser discussed
  • Islamic Socialism as a theocratically controlled population and that ideal has been growing. 
  • This is a war of ideas. 
  • Egypt may be the event that gets us involved in this struggle that is like that of opposing the communist ideology in Eastern Europe.
  • In this country, the Muslim organizations are non-violent, but are working to expand the Muslim influence throughout our culture.
