Edgar Cayce: Karma and Reincarnation

Many Mansions (1950)

Signet 1967 edition cover

This is one of the first books I read about Edgar Cayce’s work. It was written the year I was born. Now, once again, I have a copy in my possession, thanks to my wife, Susan.

‘The Cayce readings frequently give counsel for the proper attitude to take with regards to karma. The following passage gives a particularly pointed suggestion:

If the experience is used for self-indulgence, self-aggrandizement, or self-exaltation, the entity does so to its own undoing, and creates for itself that which has been called karma and which must be met. And in meeting every error, every trial, every temptation, whether they be mental or physical experiences, the approach to it should always be in the attitude of: “Not my will, but Thine, O God, be done in and through me.”

‘”Thy will” can be understood, of course, in two senses: either as the “will” of God, which expresses itself through the impersonal laws of the universe, or as the will of the eternal identity, the Oversoul, who, in the esoteric tradition, is the Father to whom we address our prayers. Whichever interpretation is placed upon the phrase, acquiescence and trust should mark our attitude toward whatever karma may come our way.

‘In the universe of order and justice and beneficence which the reincarnation principle reveals. there is no need for fear.’ (page 73)
