believes that human souls were created with a consciousness of their 

oneness with God. Some "fell" from this state; others - led by the Jesus 
soul - volunteered to save them. The Earth, with all its limitations, was 

created as a suitable arena for spiritual growth.

Duality - According to Cayce, Atlantean society was divided into two long- 

lived political factions - a "good" faction called the "Sons of the Law of One," 

and an "evil" faction called the "Sons of Belial." According to the readings, a 
major source of turmoil was the Sons of Belial's desire to exploit the Things, 

sub-humans with animal appendages and low intelligence, and the 
movements to protect and evolve them by the Sons of the Law of One.

Universal laws - Souls incarnated on the earth are subject to certain spiritual 
laws such as, "As ye sow, so shall ye reap" (karma) or "As ye judge 

(others), so shall ye be judged." Properly regarded, such laws represent an 

aspect of God's mercy whereby no matter what our circumstances, he has 
promised to guide us in our spiritual path.

Jesus and Christ Consciousness

Following New Thought precedent, Cayce distinguishes between 
Jesus and Christhood. Briefly, Jesus was a soul like us, who 

reincarnated through many lifetimes (and made many mistakes). 

"Christhood" is something which he achieved, and to which we 
also ought to aspire. Cayce accordingly calls Jesus our "elder 


From Cayce's perspective, we are not simply physical bodies, instead 

we are spiritual beings who are having a physical experience entailing 
personal growth and development. Many individuals have incorrectly 

assumed that the goal of being in the earth is to simply reach heaven, 

find enlightenment, or somehow "get out of the earth." And yet, this is a 
perspective quite different from that contained in the Cayce material. 

Instead, Cayce believed that as children of God, our mission was to 

somehow bring spirit into the earth. (Help her to become – evolve 
into Sun) .

The dynamics of our deep and literal connection to God can be found 

throughout scripture, beginning with Genesis when we are told that 

God made humankind in the Creator's image. But our relationship with 
God as our Parent is perhaps no more clearly illustrated than in the 

Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-24). This parable describes 

the journey of the soul: we were with God in the beginning, through the 
power of our free will we were able to make choices that were not 

necessarily in perfect accord with the Creator. And, at some point, we 

will "arise" and decide to return to God, regaining our inheritance and 
experiencing our true relationship with Him.
