Children, have ye anything here to eat?

From Edgar Cayce Reading #2533-8:

http://the-revealing-science-of-god.queen-annie.net/transmutation.html

“It is the Lord!”

5. (Q) Is the transmutation of human flesh to flesh divine the real mystery of the Crucifixion and Resurrection? Explain this mystery.

(A) There is no mystery to the transmutation of the body of the Christ.

For having attained in the physical consciousness the at-one-ment with the Father-Mother-God, the completeness was such that with the disintegration of the body – as indicated in the manner in which the shroud, the robe, the napkin lay – there was then the taking of the body-physical form.

This was the manner. It was not a transmutation, as of changing from one to another.

Just as indicated in the manner in which the body-physical entered the Upper Room with the doors closed, not by being a part of the wood through which the body passed but by forming from the ether waves that were within the room, because of a meeting prepared by faith.

For as had been given, “Tarry ye in Jerusalem – in the upper chamber – until YE be endued with power from on high.”

As indicated in the spoken word to Mary in the garden, “Touch me not, for I have not yet ascended to my Father.”

The body (flesh) that formed that seen by the normal or carnal eye of Mary was such that it could not be handled until there had been the conscious union with the sources of all power, of all force.

But afterward – when there had been the first, second, third, fourth and even the sixth meeting – He THEN said: “Put forth thy hand and touch the nail prints in my hands, in my feet. Thrust thy hand into my side and BELIEVE.”

This indicated the transformation.

For as indicated when the soul departs from a body (this is not being spoken of the Christ, you see), it has all of the form of the body from which it has passed – yet it is not visible to the carnal mind unless that mind has been, and is, attuned to the infinite.

Then it appears, in the infinite, as that which may be handled, with all the attributes of the physical being; with the appetites, until these have been accorded to a unit of activity with universal consciousness.

Just as it was with the Christ-body: “Children, have ye anything here to eat?”

This indicated to the disciples and the Apostles present that this was not transmutation but a regeneration, recreation of the atoms and cells of body that might, through desire, masticate material things – fish and honey (in the honeycomb) were given.

As also indicated later, when He stood by the sea and the disciples and Apostles who saw Him from the distance could not, in the early morning light, discern – but when He spoke, the voice made the impression upon the mind of the beloved disciple such that he spoke, “It is the Lord!”

The body had prepared fire upon the earth – fire, water, the elements that make for creation. For as the spirit is the beginning, water combined of elements is the mother of creation.

Not transmutation of flesh but creation, in the pattern indicated.

Just as when there are those various realms about the solar system in which each entity may find itself when absent from the body, it takes on in those other realms not an earthly form but a pattern – conforming to the same dimensional elements of that individual planet or space.

Then, as the body of Christ in the flesh became perfect

in the world, as it was laid aside on the Cross and in the

tomb, the physical body moved away – through what

man comes to know as dimensions – and the Spirit was

then able to take hold on that Being in the way in which

it entered again into the body. Thus it presented itself to

the world, as it did to individuals at the time and as it

does to man (in general) at present.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.

April 1, 2011

Marianne Williamson is the author of A Return to Love.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

(A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”, Harper Collins, 1992. From Chapter 7, Section 3])

Mysticism. The Light of an Idea. by Stuart Dean and John Van Auken.

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

The following are two Cayce affirmations for living by the light of loving oneness.

“Let that light be within me in such measures that I, as a child of God, may realize His love for man. May I live that, then, in my life day by day.” –262-129

“Our Father, through the love that Thou hast manifested in the world through Thy son, the Christ, make us more aware of ‘God is Love.'” –262-43

We can get in touch with our God-made ideal.

That peace that gives understanding.

Seeing in others then that thou would worship in the Father; for the prayer was, ‘May they be one, even as Thou and I are one’, for, as given, a spiritual insight brings the seeing of the best in each life.

There is good in all, for they are of the Father, and have been bought with the price…! Be patient, and see the glory of God! See in others something as may be glorified by Him, and see in self that you would consecrate to Him.

Your daily acts, your words, your speech — these will bring that understanding, and the realization of the ideal being manifest in you, as well as in others.”

In the early years at A.R.E. many of us worked very hard and still do to set and live by an ideal.

Just imagine what the effect would be to set loving oneness with God and others as your material, mental, and spiritual ideal, as the standard by which to measure yourself. Try it for a few months. You’ll be amazed at the change in your life, and what others say about the new you!

The great truths are simple, but as we know, they are not simple to apply each day. Yet, living by an ideal is a transformative experience worth the effort. It is very helpful to have your ideal stated in a little mantra or affirmation that you can say within your heart and mind throughout the day.

Edgar Cayce on the Akashic Records: The Book of Life

Kevin J. Todeschi – 1998 – Body, Mind & Spirit – 181 pages
the readings frequently advised individuals to set an ideal — a purposeful, positive intent against which they could measure their potential thoughts

Psalm 139:8

If I ascend up into heaven, you are there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there.

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

We Christians need to allow Jesus Christ to be bigger than Christianity.

As Jesus said (or the Christ spirit with whom Jesus made himself one), “Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and they shall become one flock, one shepherd,” John 10:16.

Jesus said that he taught and did what he was guided to do from God, the Father, within him. And before leaving us to become completely one with God, Jesus informed us that the “Comforter,” the “Spirit of Truth,” would come to us and guide us.

Of course, not only Christians have to let go of religious elitism. Jews, Moslems, and others have contingents that believe their faith is the only true faith, and all must swear allegiance to their doctrines.

As difficult as it may be, Christians, Jews, Moslems, Buddhists, Hindus, and other religious groups are going to have to allow God to be the God of all people, and open their own hearts to all people.

As the psalmist observed, God is everywhere and creator of everyone:

“Whither shall I go from thy Spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there. If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there thy hand leads me, and thy right hand holds me,” Psalm 139:7-10.

Cayce often quoted the passage: “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord,” Deut. 6:4 & Mark 12:29.
