Discussion: Attitudes and Emotions

  • Aug 25, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Throughout the Cayce readings, one of the central themes is "thoughts are things".  In other words, our thoughts are very real, and they have a direct impact on the world around us.  And some believe that your thoughts literally create the reality in which you live.  In today's world, there are may different books and seminars designed to teach us that wisdom... The Secret, etc.

 

This discussion will take a step back from analyzing "thoughts", and instead dig into understand the power of "feelings".

 

In this discussion on Attitudes and Emotions, we will touch many topics... but the underlying theme is how your feelings, emotions, and thoughts about life itself, and all of it's challenges, are critical to spiritual development.

 

Here is some of what Cayce has to say:

 

"What ye do unto others, ye are doing to thyself." 3198-3

"Yes, in healing others one heals self." 281-16

"Quit finding fault with others and others will quit find fault with you." 3544-1

"Do not confuse affection with love. Do confuse passion with love. Love is of God, it is Creative; it is all-giving." 3545-1

"Q: To what development must the soul reach before it may first find lodgement in the flesh? A: Desire for flesh." 900-70

"That which a conscious mind does with pleasure becomes a part of the entity's personality" 378-14

"Q: How should love and the sexual life properly function? A: Sexual relations should be the outcome--not the purpose of, but the outcome of the answering of soul to soul in their associations... Know that Love and God are One; that relations in the sexual life are the manifestations in the mental attributes of each... For, unless such associations become on such a basis, they become vile in the experience of those who join in such relations." 272-7

"Q: How is he best way to explain God to a chile under twelve years? A: In nature?" 5747-1

"All work and no play is as bad as all play and no work." 2597-2

"Service is asked of all men, rather than sacrifice. In sacrifice there is penance..." 99-8

"There are no shortcuts to knowledge, to wisdom, to understanding--these must be lived, must be experienced by each and every soul." 830-2

"Honest doubt is not a sin." 2519-8

"Happiness is a state of mind by giving same to others." 2772-2

"Q: Have I ever contacted my husband in other experiences? A: He bought you! Doesn't he act like it at times?" 1222-1

"Q: How can the entity best overcome loneliness? A: Fill the life with the interests of others?" 295-2

"In suffering, strength is gained." 5528-1

"No nation... no individual is stronger than the weakest habit." [masked]

      Frances, here is the Maryland info on the ARE website: http://www.edgarcayce...­ ...if you are looking for a Search for God group, they can certainly help you. This meetup group is a little different, in that it is a roundtable discussion about different topics.
