“Jesus, united with the Christ in you, is he who can teach you who you are and how to live as who you are in a new world. He can open heaven to you and walk you through its gates, there to exchange this world at last for your true home. But it is not your body that will pass through heaven’s gates, nor your body’s eyes that will view the new world you will behold and take with you. To view a physical world of dimension, shape, and scope like unto the old and hope to transport it from one place to another would be delusional. The new world does not have to do with form, but with content. A content that is as transferable as an author’s words upon a page.” (ACOL, C:P.36)
If the new world does not have to do with form, then the new world is real in intangibles—the peace, joy, harmony, that we hope to find in everyday life now and sometimes fall short of finding. Jesus unites with the Christ in each of us to show us the way. This is what our Self is doing to make changes in our experience of this world. We will lay aside the forms when we go inward to experience reality. And we will be well-served by this substitution of the changing, decaying form with something that will always last.
We are led to believe that we have something left to do on earth. I think this task has to do with what Edgar Cayce called the “Sons of God” rescuing the “daughters of men.” We are here to catalyze others to a new way of life—but after we ourselves have understood the changes that need to happen in us, and in them. The gender pronoun in Cayce’s pronouncements doesn’t matter; this is old school thinking in a male-dominated world. But the essence of what he said is important. There is a reason that we are here, trying to do our best in a world gone awry. We have to gently lead ourselves and others back to God.
The content of our new world, not the form, is transferable. That is, we can spread the good news of joy and peace without trying to create new form to spread that good news. The intangible blessings that we experience are always spreading. That is what comes of the intangible. And we inhabit a better world by living these intangibles in our everyday life.
Let Edgar Cayce’s words give us a blessing today. Ask how we might move this world a little closer to the God within. God will answer us, of this we can be sure.
