Edgar Cayce Attunements
The wisdom one may perceive in the sayings of someone is one form of wisdom. The wisdom to handle sayings wisely and well, is a superior form of wisdom. It is helped by being candid, and by reflecting for long. And the third level of wisdom is found directly inside. Good luck.
Selected Cayce Quotations
Before embarking on this special venture, it could be well to bear in mind something like: "If a fellow's prophesies are partly wrong, he might speak words of wisdom otherwise and in between - if only you can sort it out. Should we throw out the baby with the dirty bathwater, or find it and take care of it and rub it gently?" It is for you to decide.
Love is qualified as an attribute of that force, power or influence known as God.
Actually . . . we have opportunities for which we should give thanks . . . An error we refuse to correct has many lives. It takes courage to face one's own shortcomings and wisdom to do something about them.
Each soul enters with a mission. We all have a mission to perform.
The I AM is the greater force to be dealt with . . . a knowledge of same certainly gives an individual a foresight into relationships.
Much easier to refrain from error - in speech or in activity - than to seek forgiveness for the word quickly spoken.
In the self one may find the answer to all the problems that may confront you.
Begin with what you are! – Consider . . . which is the best outlet for the greatest contribution you can make towards making the world a better place . . . Pecuniary gains should come as a result of the entity's using his abilities in the direction of being helpful [thus].
It isn't always the individual that plans to accomplish some great deed that does the most. It is the one who meets the opportunities and privileges which are accorded it day by day. As such opportunities are used, there are better ways opened.
A.R.E., a global network founded on his teachings
All the recorded Edgar Cayce's Readings have been made available on CD.
Cayce has got broad support by famous persons.
The non-profit organisation called Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) at Virginia Beach, Virginia, was founded by Cayce in 1931 to research and explore transpersonal subjects. The A.R.E. community is a global network which offers study groups among other things, aiming to help people get better lives by ideas and information found in the Cayce Readings - holistic health and mindful living are A.R.E. ideals. There are tens of thousands of Cayce students in the United States and Canada, and Edgar Cayce Centres in twenty-five more countries.

Below are extracts and quotations from the book Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation by Noel Langley, Page references are to that book throughout, with a few exceptions. And what Cayce calls the Entity, is called "the soul" in this survey. I have striven to get to the gems in the book. - T. Kinnes
Edgar Cayce told he was able to "tune in" telepathically on an individual's mind and body, independently of distance. [p 9]
Over twenty-five hundred people went to him to learn of their previous life histories. [p 13]
The soul also has its attributes, and its various ways of gaining, maintaining or manifesting itself among men. [p 146]
So long as the connection is not made to waver, the source of information may be the Universal. [cf p 144]
The inmost thoughts of others can be known – If a person will seek first to know himself, then the ability to know another's mind will come. [p 268, 269]
Answers from deep within our inner selves could be the best. If it is of God . . . it must come from the All-Good. [p 143, 148]
The soul occupies a pattern – It shifts and changes its pattern as it uses or abuses the opportunities presented to it. [p 158, 264]
It matters very little how important you once were, and very much that you are - conforming to decent standards in the immediate present. [p 105]
The loneliest person, the loneliest individual, yea the loneliest soul, is the one who has lost hold upon his own self. [cf p 99]
Resourceful, fantastic souls may enhance longevity and telepathy. [p 135]
"On going into the unconscious state, on one occasion, to obtain information for an individual, I recognized that I was leaving my body.
"There was just a direct, straight, and narrow line in front of me, like a shaft of white light. On either side was fog and smoke, and many shadowy figures who seemed to be crying to me for help, and begging me to come aside to the plane they occupied.
"As I followed along the shaft of light, the way began to clear. The figures on either side grew more distinct; they took on clearer form. But there was a continual beckoning back, or the attempt to sidetrack me and bring me aside from my purpose . . . I kept going straight ahead. After a while I passed to where the figures were merely shadows attempting to urge me on, rather than to stop me. As they took on more form, they seemed to be occupied with their own activities.
"Finally I came to a hill, where there was a mount and a temple. I entered this temple and found in it a very large room, very much like a library. Here were the books of people's lives, for each person's activities were a matter of actual record, it seemed. And I merely had to pull down the record of the individual for whom I was seeking information." [p 46-47]
On thought-forms: Forms created by concentrated thought are things [better: objectified]. [cf p 132]
The just people in the world keep it going. [p 123]
One may compare the physical body to a swimsuit. And we are finally rescued from a stifling suit. [p 34, 35]
The good soul's task on earth is to make use of its successive rebirths [serial lives] to balance its positive and negative karmic patterns by subduing selfish impulses and encouraging proper creative urges. [p 10, 17, 19]
Edgar Cayce viewed the future in two quite separate ways. While the personal destiny awaiting a given soul may consist of the inevitable consequences of his own past actions . . . the future [usually] can never be entirely preordained. . . . It is feasible to alter and reshape its destiny in accord with the altering behaviour patterns of that people of that country. [p 122]
