Edgar Cayce on Soul and Spirit

Cayce quotes:

“Q: What is the soul of a body?” He answered, “A: That which the Maker gave to every entity or individual in the beginning, and which is seeking the home or place of the Maker.”

“Spirit is the First Cause, the primary beginning, the motivative influence – as God is Spirit.”

“There is a vast deal of difference between spiritual and soul forces. Spirit forces are the animation of all life-giving, life-producing forces. The spiritual element, the vitality, produces the motive forces of the entity, whether physical or spiritual. Spiritual forces being the life, the reproductive principle. The soul is the development principle.”

“Each soul is a portion of the Divine. Motivating that soul-body is the spirit of divinity.

“The purpose of the heart is to know yourself to be yourself and yet one with God.”

“Don’t put the material first, for you have to live with yourself a long, long while! Become acquainted with yourself. Know yourself and your relationship to the Creative Forces.”

“As the entity moves from sphere to sphere, it seeks its way to the home, to the face of the Creator, the Father, the First Cause.” (EC 136-8)

First Cause is: “That the created would be the companion for the Creator.”

“As your body, your mind, your soul is attuned to that Divine that answers within, so may you indeed be quickened to know His purpose; and you may fill that purpose for which you entered this experience.”

“It will require that there be such an attitude in mind, in purpose, in hope, and in relationships to others, that each cell of the body may be attuned to the divine within. Each cell must become expectant, that there may be the renewing, the revivifying of the relationships that the soul-entity bears to Creative Forces.”

“The soul is eternal and if the entity will analyze its own self, it is body, mind, and soul. Soul … longs for spiritual interpretations, mental understanding, and physical harmony and rest. These are parts of the experience of every soul.”

“As has been experienced in the mental self, there is as much reason to dwell upon the thought from where the soul came, as it is upon where the soul goes. For, if the soul is eternal, it always has been – if it is always to be. And that is the basis, or the thought of Creative Force, or God. He ever was, He ever will be. And individuals, as His children, are a part of that consciousness. And it is for that purpose that He came into the earth; that we, as soul-entities, might know ourselves to be ourselves, and yet one with Him; as He, the Master, the Christ, knew Himself to be Himself and yet one with the Father.”

“The purpose of manifestation in the material plane is that we may apply a little here, a little there, line upon line, precept upon precept, and we may become like
Him.

“And as the entity has through the experiences seen and aided others in the application of their efforts and their abilities to become more and more aware of their relationships to the Creative Forces or God, so may the entity – as He gave – in patience you become aware of your soul.

“Spirit is the natural, the normal condition of an entity.”
