~ Edgar Cayce on Human Origins ~

    I fond this in my mail at one time and I forgot were it came from.
             ! Thank You - to the originator - Thank You !

Edgar Cayce revealed volumes of psychic material, much of which was verified 
to be true to the amazement of doctors and scientists. Cayce discovered at a 
young age that he could go into hypnosis and travel to other realms to 
obtain psychic information on any subject. He claimed that anyone could do 
what he did with the proper training and attunement. He would go into a 
hypnotic trance that would induce a near-death experience. During his 
near-death experiences he was able to tap into a virtually unlimited amount 
of information which he referred to as the "Universal Mind".

He was able to reveal previously unknown information on a wide range of 
subjects such as astrology, the afterlife, religion, the future, 
consciousness, and human origins, just to name a few. The following 
information on human origins was revealed to Cayce during his excursions 
while out of the body and as told in Thomas Sugrue's book, There is a River. 
Because of the archaic language used in Cayce's description, I have 
paraphrased it slightly, without losing any of original meaning, to make it 
easier to read.


Edgar Cayce Speaking Here:

People usually demand a beginning, so in the beginning there was a sea of 
spirit and it filled all of space. The spirit was static, content, and aware 
of itself. It was a giant resting on the bosom of its thought and 
contemplating what it is.

Then the spirit moved into action. It withdrew into itself until all of 
space was empty. In the center, the restless mind of the spirit shone. This 
was the beginning of the individuality of the spirit. This was what the 
spirit discovered itself to be when it awakened. This spirit was God.

God desired self-expression and desired companionship; therefore, God 
projected the cosmos and souls. The cosmos was built with music, arithmetic, 
geometry, harmony, system, and balance. The building blocks were all of the 
same material - the life essence. It was the power of God that changed the 
length of its wave and the rate of its vibration which created the patterns 
for multitudes of forms. This action resulted in the law of diversity which 
supplied endless patterns. God played on this law of diversity as a pianist 
plays on a piano - producing melodies and arranging them in a symphony.

Each design carried within it the plan for its evolution. This plan 
corresponds to the sound of a note struck on a piano. The sounds of several 
notes unite to make a chord; chords in turn become phrases; phrases become 
melodies; melodies intermingle and move back and forth, across and between 
and around each other, to make a symphony. Then in the end, the music will 
stop and the physical universe will be no more; but between the beginning 
and the finish of the music there was glorious beauty and a glorious 
experience. The spiritual universe will continue.

Everything assumed its design in various forms and their activity resulted 
in the law of attraction and repulsion. All forms would attract and repel 
each other in their evolutionary dance.

All things are a part of God and an expression of God's thought. The Mind of 
God was the force which propelled and perpetuated these thoughts. All minds, 
as thoughts of God, do everything God imagined. Everything that came into 
being is an aspect of the One Mind.

The souls of individuals were created for companionship with God (the 
Whole). The pattern that God used to create souls was the pattern of God's 
own Spirit. The spirit is life. From the spirit, the mind builds patterns. 
From the mind, the physical creation is the result. This is how the spirit, 
the mind, and individuality, became the pattern for souls. This is how 
cause, action, and effect became the pattern for everything. First there was 
the spirit (the first cause); then there was the action which withdrew 
spirit into itself; then there was the resulting individuality of God.

The spirit of the individual existed before their soul was created. The 
spirit keeps the knowledge of its identity with God. The soul has the 
ability to experience the activities of the mind in a manner separate from God.

Thus, new individuals issued from God and remained dependent upon God; but 
individuals were also aware of an existence apart from God. Individuals were 
given the power to choose and direct their own activity. Without free will, 
it would only remain a part of the individuality of God. The mind, issuing 
as a force from God, would naturally fulfill God's thoughts, unless directed 

The power to do this - to direct the force of mind individually from God - 
is free will. And the record or memory of this freedom is the soul. The soul 
began with its first expression of free will through the force of mind. The 
first thought that the spirit generated of free will (i.e., the first 
diversion of the force of mind from its normal path of unity with God) was 
the beginning of the soul.

The nucleus of the soul was the balance of positive and negative forces that 
are equal in power. These forces produce harmonious activities the positive 
initiating, impregnating, and thrusting forward; the negative receiving, 
nourishing, and ejecting. The steps of this evolutionary process are also 
the stages of the thought process perception, reflection, and opinion.

The soul consists of two states of consciousness (1) The spirit which bears 
a knowledge of its identity with God. (2) The soul which bears a knowledge 
of everything it experienced.

The plan for the soul is a cycle of experience that is unlimited in scope 
and duration. Through this evolutionary cycle, the soul will come to know 
the creation in all its aspects at the discretion of the will. The cycle 
would be completed when the desire of the will was no longer different from 
the thought of God. The consciousness of the soul would then merge with its 
spiritual consciousness of its identity with God. Then the soul will return 
to its source as the companion it was intended to be.

As a companion, the soul would remain conscious of its separate 
individuality and would be aware of its own free will as it now acted as a 
part of God, but not diverting its mind because it was in agreement with 
God's influence on the mind of the soul. Until this state of at-one-ment was 
reached, the soul would not be a companion in the true sense of the word.

The idea that returning to God means a loss of individuality is paradoxical, 
since God is aware of everything that happens and must therefore be aware of 
the consciousness of each individual. The return of the soul is the return 
of the image to that which imagined it. The consciousness of the individual 
- its soul record - could not be destroyed without destroying a part of God. 
When a soul returns to God it becomes aware of itself not only as a part of 
God, but as a part of every other soul, and everything.

What is lost is the ego - the desire to do other than the desire of God. 
When the soul returns to God, the ego is voluntarily relinquished. This is 
the symbology behind the crucifixion of Christ.

The plan for the soul included experiencing of all creation, but it did not 
necessarily mean participating in all forms and substance. Nor did it mean 
that souls can interfere with the creation. Nor did it mean that souls are 
to spin their own little worlds, twisting and bending laws to make images of 
their dreams.

But these things could happen. The soul was the greatest thing that God made 
because it has free will. Once free will was given, God did nothing to curb 
it. However it acted, it had to act within God's reality. By whatever route, 
the soul will return to God.

The fact that the human body is a speck of dust on a small planet in a 
universe of galaxies can lead to the illusion that humans are a small 
creation. But the soul is the unlimited activity of the mind and the 
grandeur of imagination.

At first there was little difference between the consciousness of the new 
individual (i.e., soul) and its consciousness of identity with God (i.e., 
spirit). Souls merely watched the flow of the Mind, somewhat as people 
daydreaming, marveling at its power and versatility. Then souls began to act 
itself, imitating and paralleling what Mind was doing. Gradually souls 
acquired experience, becoming a complementary rather than an imitative 
force. It helped to extend, modify, and regulate creation.

Certain souls became aggressive with their own power and began to experiment 
with it. They mingled with the dust of the stars and the winds of the 
spheres - feeling them - and becoming part of them. One result of this was 
an unbalance between the positive and negative forces. To feel things 
demanded the negative force. To express through things (and directing and 
managing them) required the positive force.

Another result of souls becoming aggressive with their own power was the 
gradual weakening of the link between the two states of consciousness (i.e., 
spirit and the soul). Some souls became more concerned with and aware of 
their own creations rather than God's. This resulted in the fall of certain 
souls to an even lower consciousness. The Bible allegorically refers to this 
event as the Fall in the Garden of Eden and the revolt of the angels in the 
Book of Revelation. This event is also the basis for the cosmology of 
Christian Gnosticism and Jewish mysticism.

To enter into another level of creation and become part of it, the soul had 
to assume a new, or third consciousness - a physical form. Assuming a 
physical form is a way of experiencing that level of creation by means of a 
conscious mind (i.e., the third consciousness). Through the conscious mind, 
an individual can experience physical consciousness the physical body, the 
five senses, the glandular and nervous systems. This transformation of 
consciousness does not apply everywhere at this level of creation. In other 
worlds and solar systems, the transformation may differ. One can only 
imagine the number of these other worlds and the aspects of divine mind 
which they represent.

When a soul enters into another level of creation and its consciousness, it 
separated itself temporarily from the consciousness of its own soul, and 
became even further removed from the consciousness of its spirit. Thus, 
instead of helping to direct the flow of creation and contributing to it, 
the soul found itself in the stream and drifting along with it. The farther 
the soul traveled from the shore, the more it succumbed to the pull of the 
current and the more difficult was the task of getting back to land.

Planets and solar systems became a temptation to souls. Each solar system 
had its own course and its own plan. Souls moved toward them through the 
activity of a constant stream of mind. When a soul leaped into the stream 
(by immersing itself in the system through which the stream was flowing) it 
had the force of the current to contend with, and its free will was 
hampered. It was very easy, under these circumstances, to drift with the 

Each solar system also represents an opportunity for development, 
advancement, and growth toward the ideal of complete companionship with God 
- the position of co-creator in the vast system of universal mind.

Our solar system also attracted souls. Since each solar system is a single 
expression of the divine, with its planets as integral parts, the earth came 
into the path of souls.

Each solar system in the universe is like an atom in a universe of worlds. 
Atoms have quantum levels for electrons to travel around. The sun has 
"quantum levels" for planets to travel around. The planets of our solar 
system are physical representations of heavenly dimensions. These levels as 
a whole are the consciousness of our solar system. There are nine 
planetary/heavenly dimensions to the consciousness of our solar system. The 
planet earth represents the third dimension. Earth represents 
three-dimensional life in our solar system.

The earth is an expression of Divine Mind with its own laws, its own plan, 
and its own evolution. Souls, longing to feel the beauty of the seas, the 
winds, the forest, and the flowers, mixed with them and expressed themselves 
through them. They also mingled with the animals, and made thought forms in 
imitation of them. Souls played at creating and imitated God. But this 
interfered with the evolutionary plan of the earth. Thus, the stream of mind 
that was carrying out this plan for the earth gradually drew souls into its 
current. Souls had to evolve into the bodies they had themselves created.

This entanglement of souls into physical form was a probability from the 
beginning. But God did not know when it would happen until the souls, of 
their own free will, had caused it to happen.

All souls that exist were created by God in the very beginning. None has 
been made since. This means all souls on this planet, pre-existed before 
birth. Of the souls which God created, only a comparative few have entered 
into the experience of our solar system. Many other souls have gone through 
or are going through a similar entanglement in other solar systems in the 

A way to liberate the souls that were entangled in matter was created. A 
physical form became available as a vehicle for the soul on earth. A way 
became available for souls to enter the earth and experience it as part of 
their evolutionary/reincarnation cycle. Of the physical forms already 
existing on earth, a species of anthropoid ape most nearly approached the 
necessary pattern.

Souls descended on these apes - hovering above and about them rather than 
inhabiting them - and influenced them to move toward a different goal from 
the simple one they had been pursuing. They came down out of the trees, 
built fires, made tools, lived in communities, and began to communicate with 
each other. Eventually they lost their animal look, shed bodily hair, and 
took on refinements of manner and habit.

The evolution of the human body occurred partly through the soul's influence 
on the endocrine glands until the ape-man was a three-dimensional 
objectification of the soul that hovered above it. Then the soul fully 
descended into the body and earth had a new inhabitant the homo sapien.

Homo sapiens appeared in five different places on earth at the same time, as 
the five races. This evolved human is what the Bible refers to as "Adam". 
When souls incarnated into physical form, it would bring the divine 
consciousness (i.e., the spirit) in with it. Cayce referred to this divine 
consciousness as the "Christ Consciousness" or "Buddhahood" or the 
"superconsciousness". Christ consciousness has little to do with the 
personality known as Jesus. It means that a person has attained a complete 
human-divine unity. This human-divine unity has been attained by many people 
thus far - one such person was Jesus.

The problem for the soul entangled in flesh was to overcome the attractions 
of the earth to the extent that the soul would be as free in the body as out 
of it. Only when the body was no longer a hindrance to the free express of 
the soul would the cycle of earth be finished. This is the condition of 
having a perfect unity of the human with the divine.

In a smaller field, this was the evolutionary drama of free will and 
creation. In a still smaller field, each atom of the physical body is a 
world in itself where a drama of free will and creation is occurring. The 
soul brings life into each atom, and each atom is a physical reflection of 
the soul's pattern.

With the advent of consciousness, humans became aware that sex meant 
something more to them than to the animals. Sex is the "door" through which 
new souls enter the earth, a door unnecessary in other heavenly 
planetary/realms. Sex is the only means which trapped souls have, of being 
liberated from their predicament - through the cycle of birth, death and 

The plan for the earth cycle of souls was a limited series of incarnations 
with periods in between of dwelling in other heavenly dimensions of 
consciousness. Reincarnation would continue until a soul's every thought and 
action of the physical body was in accord with the plan originally laid out 
for the soul (i.e., a human-divine unity, Christ consciousness). When the 
body was no longer a hindrance to the free expression of the soul - when the 
conscious mind had merged with the subconscious, the earth cycle was 
finished and the soul liberated to move on to new adventures.

This conquest of the physical body could not be attained until there was 
perfection in the other dimensions of consciousness that is a physical 
representation of our solar system. Astrologically, the goal for the soul is 
to attain a level of consciousness that represents the total expression of 
the sun and its planets. Whichever level of consciousness that the soul 
assumes, it becomes the focal point of activity. The other states of 
consciousness receded to the position of urges and influences.

The human race was fostered by a soul who had completed his experience of 
creation, attained Christhood, returned to God, and became a companion to 
God and a co-creator. This is the soul known as Jesus. The first 
evolutionary transformation of ape-men to homo sapiens is what the Bible 
refers to as "Adam". This was the beginning of the divine consciousness into 
flesh on the earth. The soul known as Jesus, was one of the first souls to 
enter into one of the Adamic races.

The soul of Jesus was interested in the plight of its fellow souls trapped 
in earth. After supervising the influx of souls into flesh, the Christ soul 
took form itself, from time to time, to act as a leader for the people.

At first, these souls just slightly inhabited the bodies of ape-men while 
remembering their true identities as spirit beings. But gradually, after 
many incarnations, these souls descended even further into physical 
consciousness and the result was a decrease in their spiritual mentality. 
They remembered their true selves only in dreams and in fables that were 
handed down from one generation to another.

Religion came into being as a ritual of longing for lost spirit memories. 
The arts were born which included music and geometry. This knowledge was 
brought into the world from incoming souls who gradually forgot their 
heavenly source. This knowledge had to be written down, learned, and taught 
to each new generation.

Finally, humans were left with a conscious mind that was separated from 
their own individuality as souls. This individual identity as a soul became 
the subconscious mind. The individual identity or awareness of the physical 
world became the conscious mind. The subconscious mind (i.e., the soul) 
influenced the conscious mind and gave it its stature and quality. The 
subconscious mind dwelt in the "suit of clothes" that is the physical body 
and only in sleep is it disrobed.

Conscious minds, left to its own influence, will work out the plans and 
desires of God. Humans eventually developed theories for what they felt was 
true, but no longer knew to be true. The result was the creation of 
philosophy and theology. Humans searched and discovered higher knowledge 
which they carried within themselves but could no longer reach with the 
conscious mind. This resulted in the creation of science.

Humans evolved from having an awareness of higher spirit knowledge to having 
only mystical dreams, revealed religions, philosophy and theology. This 
evolution of consciousness ultimately reached a plateau and humans generally 
only believed what they could see and feel and prove in terms of their 
conscious minds. Then humanity began the struggle of regaining this higher 

Meanwhile, the Christ soul continued to teach and lead humanity by 
incarnating as the Biblical characters named Adam, Enoch, and Melchizedek. 
Enoch and Melchizedek experienced neither birth nor death. Then Christ soul 
realized after these incarnations that it was necessary to give humanity a 
pattern by which they could follow in order to return to God.

The Christ soul achieved this goal by incarnating as the personality known 
as Jesus, who became victorious over the death of the physical body by 
laying aside the ego, accepting the crucifixion of the body in order to 
return to God. Jesus created a pattern for humans to follow. Through the 
acts of leading a perfect life and becoming unjustly killed, this reversed 
the negative karma (i.e., the law of God, an eye for an eye) which came from 
Jesus' first incarnation as Adam.

At present, humanity is in a state of great spiritual darkness - the 
darkness which precedes dawn. Humanity developed a level of skepticism that 
reached a point where it forced humans to make conclusions that they knew 
was intuitively wrong. At the same time, humanity continued their 
investigation of natural phenomena to the point where conscious awareness 
disproved all the higher knowledge that souls had in the beginning. The free 
will of humanity is discovering that all roads to higher knowledge is 
leading toward the same destination and conclusions. Scientific, 
theological, and philosophical knowledge, which has no desire to join 
forces, are approaching a point of merger. Skepticism faces destruction by 
its own hand.

Humanity is at all times the total of what they have been and done, what 
they have fought and defended, and what they have hated and loved. In the 
three-dimensional consciousness of every human, in every atom of the human 
body, is a reflection of the soul and a crystallization of their 
individuality. Their emotional and nervous structures, their mental 
abilities, aptitudes, aversions, preferences, fears, follies, ambitions, and 
character, are the sum of what humans have done with their free will. This 
makes every personality, as the earthly "cloak" of an individuality, 
different from every other personality.

The law of karma, which is earth's law of cause and effect ("of reaping what 
one sows") also makes humans different from one another in their joys and 
sorrows, in their handicaps, their strengths, their weaknesses, their 
virtues and vices, their appreciation of beauty, and their comprehension of 
truth. Transgressions that humans make in life must be corrected in life, if 
not in the same life, then in a future incarnation. The earth's natural law, 
not the law humanity or God, demands an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. 

This same law applies to groups of people, as they act together. There is 
karma for families, for tribes, for races, and for nations. For example, 
when a nation of individuals started a war in a previous life and are 
reincarnated, a war will be committed upon that nation. Only when such a 
nation is defeated in humility by a nation with justice and mercy, will the 
karma of war be lifted from the defeated nation.

Every person's life is shaped to some extent by karma their own, their 
associates, their loved ones, their nation, their race, and the entire world 
itself. But karma is not greater than free will. It is what a person does 
with these influences and urges, how they react to them, which makes the 
difference in their soul development. Because of karma, some things are more 
probable than others, but as long as there exists free will, anything is 

Thus free will and predestination coexist within human beings. Their past 
experiences limit them in probability and incline them in certain 
directions, but free will can always "draw the sword from the stone." The 
combination of free will and predestination means that humans freely choose 
their own predetermined destiny to return to God.

No soul incarnates without having a general plan for the life to be 
experienced. The personality that a person expresses in life is only one of 
the many personalities (i.e., facets of the soul) that a person could 
express. The mission of every soul is to work on one or several facets of 
the soul's karma (which can be thought of as the soul's memory of its prior 
actions). A soul does not choose a mission that is more than it can handle 
or that is too much for the personality assigned to or chosen by the soul.

Some souls can freely choose their own conditions in which to be born and 
complete their missions. Other souls who have made too many mistakes in past 
lives and who have become dangerously influenced by worldly desires, are 
incarnated into conditions chosen by law of karma at a time and under 
circumstances that are best suited to help them with their karmic debt. 
Their mission is seldom perfectly fulfilled because of the such a soul's 
large amount of negative karma. Their mission is sometimes badly neglected.

The circumstances and conditions that a soul chooses to incarnate into is 
usually made at conception, when a channel for a soul's expression is opened 
by the parents. When this occurs, a pattern is made by the mingling of the 
soul patterns of the parents. This sets up certain karmic conditions. A soul 
whose own karma approximates these karmic conditions will be attracted to 
the opportunity presented. Since the karmic pattern created by the parents 
will not be exactly the same the incarnating soul's own karma, the soul must 
take on some of the karma of the parents.

Conditions other than the created pattern are conditions that the soul must 
consider when choosing a body to be born with. Such conditions include the 
future of the incarnated person's life, former associations with the 
parents, the incarnation of souls that it wishes to incarnate with, live 
with, and with whom the soul will have problems to work out with. In some 
cases the parents are the only reason for a some souls to incarnate.

Such a child will be devoted to them and remain close to them. The child 
then completes its mission by dying so that the child's death can teach the 
parents very valuable lessons in life and of spirit. In other cases, the 
parents are only used as a means for which the child can leave home and go 
about its business in completing its mission.

The soul may actually occupy a fetus as early as three months after 
conception or even as late as a month after birth. In the latter case, the 
soul hovers over the infants body since birth to decide whether or not to 
occupy it. Once the decision is made and the occupation completed, the 
separation between the conscious mind (i.e., personality) and subconscious 
mind (i.e., the soul) takes place and the soul record (i.e., memory) of the 
child begins. The fact that some babies are miscarried does not mean that it 
was refused as a vehicle for a soul. Just the opposite is true. The 
opportunity to incarnate was taken away from the soul due to natural forces 
and this made the occupation of that body impossible.

The personality is a facet of the soul's individuality experienced in 
three-dimensional consciousness (i.e., body, soul, spirit). The other facets 
of the soul remains in shadow - in the background. It gives tone to the 
personality through its urges, appreciations, tastes, avocations, and 

A particular personality of an individual is shaped by three or four 
incarnations. The emotions and talents of a person reflects these past 
incarnations. A person's dreams, visions, and meditations are reflections of 
the soul's experience in other dimensions (i.e., heavenly realms) of 
consciousness associated physically by our solar system. The human intellect 
was created from the stars and planets.

The intellect is the mind force of the soul which is conditioned by its 
previous incarnations on earth and its experiences in other dimensions and 
even in other solar systems. The intellect becomes dimmed or brightened by 
its recent experiences within the three- dimensional consciousness of the 
solar system and the experiences within other dimensional realms of 

Thus, a personality is only a facet of the soul. The soul may incarnate as 
any facet to express that portion of itself. As a soul approaches its 
completion of the solar cycle of consciousness, the personality becomes more 
multi-sided and expresses greater facets of the soul. This is because each 
incarnation "burns off" negative karma which requires less and less 
attention. Finally, the personality will become a complete expression of the 
soul and the cycle of reincarnation is finished for the soul.

As the soul succumbs to worldly desires by abandoning its intellect for 
sensuality, it becomes more and more one-sided.

When the individual has attained complete human-divine unity, its cycle of 
reincarnations is finished, the soul is liberated, and the soul then merges 
with its spirit and, therefore, with God. The soul record (memory) is 
forever retained. This record is, at all times, is the sum total of what the 
soul personality has been all it has thought, all it has experienced; all 
it has eaten, drunk, and felt through the ages.

Thus, as the soul is subjected to reincarnation, both the atheist and the 
religionist are correct. The atheist believes the personality does not 
survive after death. The religionist believes the soul is judged after death 
by its Creator. Substituting "personality" for "soul", both are expressing 
the truth. The personality is evaluated after death and then returns to the 
soul which created it, thereby giving up its own independent existence and 
becoming once again a facet of the soul. This process is different from the 
process where the soul merges with the spirit after it completes its cycles 
of reincarnation.

With each incarnation into the physical realm (the solar system) and the 
other realms of consciousness, the general plan for perfecting the soul 
proceeds. Another facet of the soul is assumed and incarnated to experience 
tribulation in order to reinforce the character of the soul's entire 

The trials and tribulations of individuals, groups, nations, and races, are 
dealt with time and time again through free will until they are solved. Then 
souls are free to journey to other worlds, or other solar systems, or other 
universes, or other dimensions of the hierarchy of consciousness.


Quotes from Edgar Cayce concerning the cosmos and souls

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. How?  The Mind of 
God moved, and matter, form, came into being."

"Spirit is life. Mind is the builder, and the physical is the result."

"In each atom, in each corpuscle, is life. Life is that you worship as God."

"For the earth is only an atom in the universe of worlds."

"All souls in the beginning were one with the Father. The separation or 
turning away brought evil."

"For man may separate himself from God - the Spirit - but the spirit does 
not separate from man."

to its Maker."

"The Father has not willed that any soul should perish, and is thus mindful 
that each soul has again, and yet again, the opportunity for making its 
paths straight."

"Life is, in all its manifestations in every animate force, Creative Force 
in action; and is the love of expression - or expressing that life; truth 
becoming a result of life's love expressed.  These are but names - unless 
experienced in the consciousness of each soul."

"All power, all force, is a manifestation of that which is termed the

I feel that Edgar expressed this "eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" as a 
symbolic truth. If this took place in actuality, it might indeed leave 
everybody blind. I think this is what Gandhi said about this "eye for an 
eye" statement.  I agree with Gandhi!
