manifested in the earth in order to learn lessons that will enable 

us to return to our former state of spiritual awareness. At the same 
time, one purpose we all have in common is to bring the spirituality of 

the Creator into the earth.

A soul can choose to be born into either a male or a female body 

in any given lifetime or, as Cayce called it, an incarnation. A soul 

selects that environment (parents and family, location, personal 
obstacles, etc.) which will best allow for the learning of lessons it 

needs for completeness. The goal is to fully express love in all the 

challenges which physical life offers.

One's experiences are subject to the choices made with free will. As 
one grows, he or she learns-or rather remembers-his or her true 

relationship with God and one's heritage as a spiritual being. With free 

will, we can turn the challenges life presents to us into stepping-stones 
toward growth, or we can see them as obstacles and stumbling blocks. 

Either way, we reap what we have sown. We constantly meet the 

consequences of previous deeds and attitudes.

One frequently misunderstood concept regarding reincarnation has to 

do with karma. From the standpoint of the Cayce material, karma is not 
destiny; it is only memory. These memories are generally unconscious 

and influence our abilities, our faults, even our relationships with 
others, but with free will we can meet this memory as a positive or a 

negative experience. Karma provides us with the potential to learn a 

lesson we need in order to grow at a soul level, and free will 
determines whether or not we choose to learn it at this time. The 

choices we make determine the next set of potential experiences we 


Much more than simply a concept that applies to a limited segment of 

the world, reincarnation is a philosophy that has-at one time or another- 
been embraced by all the major religions of the world. It's a concept 

that can allow us to have compassion for one another because 

ultimately we are all equal-there is only one God, and we are all His 

From Cayce's viewpoint, it doesn't really matter if an individual believes 

in reincarnation or not. For some it can be a helpful concept, for others 

confusing. The main purpose is to allow individuals to become aware of 
their true spiritual nature and their ultimate relationship with one 

another. In fact, if we can think for a moment about the one person in 

our life whom we love most of all. then we will get an inkling of the goal 
of reincarnation: to be able to love every single soul, even ourselves, 

with the very same love.
