Humor for the Body and Soul

(Edgar Cayce Readings, Holistic Health) Permanent link

Humor for the Body and Soul
By Louise Wild

Laugh 01We have all heard the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine.” Some of us know that a sense of humor is essential for physical, mental, and emotional health. It can also, due to the positive attitude that accompanies it, improve our outlook on life and, in turn, encourage us to pursue those avenues that will make for spiritual development.

In the Cayce readings we find many references to the benefits of humor:

Cultivate the ability to see the ridiculous and retain the ability to laugh. For know only in those God hath favored is there the ability to laugh, even when clouds of doubt arise, or when every form of disturbance arises. For remember the Master smiled, and laughed oft, even on the way to Gethsemane. (Edgar Cayce Reading 277-1)

Keep an attitude of helpfulness, cheerfulness, hopefulness. Be optimistic! At least make three people each day laugh heartily by something the body says! It will not only help the body; it will help others. (Edgar Cayce Reading 798-1)

One that should cultivate more the humorous side of life; Not that which is at the expense of another; that is, never laugh at anyone but laugh with others often. (Edgar Cayce Reading 2327-1)

That the entity has a sense of humor has oft been a saving grace, in not only this experience but in others....Keep thy humor, keep the thinking well of self, but as well of thy neighbor. (Edgar Cayce Reading  2788-1)

At times the entity sees so well the humor in so many situations as to appear to see the ridiculous rather than that which is the creative force in humor. Do not lose this sense of humor. It will oft be a means for saving an unseemly situation. (Edgar Cayce Reading 2421-2)

Cayce’s readings addressed the ways in which humor aids spiritual development:

If ye lose the ability to laugh, ye lose that ability to be joyous. And the religion, the principle of the Christ – life is joyous! For remember He laughed . . . even at those that tormented Him. This is what angered them most. (3003-1)

The entity should attempt seriously, prayerfully, spiritually to see even that as might be called the ridiculous side of every question, the humor in same. Remember that a good laugh, an arousing even to what might in some be called hilariousness, is good for the body physically, mentally, and gives the opportunity for greater mental and spiritual awakening. (2647-1)

Laugh 02Obviously there is much agreement that an active sense of humor is beneficial to body and soul. We all know how good we feel after having a bout of laughter. In his conscious state, some have said, Edgar Cayce had a wonderful sense of humor. Apparently, that carried through to his readings, as is evidenced in the following witticisms:

Q. Any further advice on the body in general?
A. You better take a rest if you don’t want a long rest. (3436-3)

Q. Should I keep going to the same doctors?
A. If you want to die! (5051-1)

Q. Would it be better for the body to remain in bed without moving about?
A. It’ll move when you give it the castor oil, and that will be soon enough. (348-18)

Q. Which shoulder should be taped?
A. The one that’s hurt! (1710-5)

Q. If this treatment is followed properly, what period of time will be necessary to bring this body to its normal state?
A. One year, one month, one day, one hour, and 10 minutes from now. (4681-1)

Q. Is there any special name for the condition of the head?
A. Headache. (171-1)

Q. Give some specific lower limb exercise for the evening.
A. Those of the stooping, with the feet together, and those of the stooping with the feet, as the body raises, jumps up, and spreads feet apart – these are the best – be well to pull down the window shades though. (288-28)

Q. Have I ever contacted my husband in any other experience; if so, what way?
A. He bought you! Doesn’t he act like it at times? (1222-1)

The name then…was Lila. Before that it was known as Lulu, and was a lulu, too! According to the proverbial activity indicated from the name. (4046-1)

Q. Is the prediction true that I will die suddenly, at the age of 80, in Tibet?
A. If you go to Tibet and live to be 80, you may die there! This depends upon many, many, many circumstances. You will not die in Tibet, unless you go there; and there’s not the prospect now of going there! (2067-3)

…Hide not skeletons in thine own closet, for they will rattle when ye least expect them. (3246-1)

Q. What causes the bad disposition?
A. If the body had a more agreeable husband its disposition would be better! (2654-2)

Q. Will the body find himself in a lawsuit?
A. The body may find himself in any way. Best to find himself from within rather than in a law-suit. (213-1)

This last quote is certainly not a joke, but often an unexpected answer provokes laughter:

Q. Who will aid me most in my work and daily life?
A. God! (2444-1)

Laugh 03Don’t you feel better now that you’ve had a few laughs? Have a good laugh every day and give someone else one. You will de-stress and improve your health and disposition. Also, you will be more positive and more open to making the world a better place, rather than grumbling about it.

Incals in Florida

Incals in Florida
By John Fuhler

The readings document one of the most interesting stories of the peopling of North America:

Before this…we find the entity was in the land of its present nativity, in what is now known as…Florida; during those periods when there were those settlings…from the lands of On (?) or the Inca….and those that gathered upon what is now the east portion of Alabama and Florida…
(Edgar Cayce Reading 1298-1)

Timucua Village

How and when these South American Indians arrived in Florida is a story which began about the time of the first upheavals in Atlantis.

…the entity was in the Peruvian land. For, with the first upheavals in Atlantis, the entity was among those who journeyed…to what later became the Inca land. (Edgar Cayce Reading 3042-1)

…the entity was in the Inca or Peruvian land, when there had been the first of the upheavals in the Atlantean land…
(Edgar Cayce Reading 2829-1)

At some time after these Atlantean refugees had established themselves in the land, the Ohums conquered them.

In the one before this we find in that land now known as the Peruvian, or Ecuador. The entity then was among the Ohums…of that period, and among the peoples who journeyed in and conquered the peoples from the Atlantean upheaval, or the first of the series of upheavals that occurred.
(Edgar Cayce Reading 99-6)

The Ohum occupation of the Peruvian lands began prior to the coming of the Incals and the Poseidians. It continued until after the sinking of southern Atlantis.

In the one before this we find in that land known now as the Peruvian, during the period of the Ohums…before Incals and the peoples of the Poseidian land entered.
(Edgar Cayce Reading 1916-5)

In the one before this we find in that land now known as Peruvian, the entity being among the Ohums…when there were the changes being wrought in the land through the inflow of the peoples from Poseidia and Latinia…that southernmost portion of that land [Atlantis] sunk…
(Edgar Cayce Reading 488-5)

In turn the Ohums were subjugated by the Inca.

We find in that period when the Arms [Aymaras? Ohms were?] in that land now known as through [Peru, though] the entity then [was] among those that ruled in the land and being subjugated by the Inco [Inca?]…that took possession of the land from those that ruled.
(Edgar Cayce Reading 4292-1)

The land referred to as the Peruvian land was much broader than the modern country of Peru. According to the readings, the Peruvian land included a part of the Atlantean land, a part of On (Og?), and Ecuador. Sometimes the Peruvian land was equated with the Incal land, which was also identified as Oz and Og.

…the entity was within that same Peruvian land, though not exactly in the same territory; rather in that from a part of the Atlantean, as well as a part of what became later the On [?Og?] or the Incal land…
(Edgar Cayce Reading 1637-1)

…the entity was in the land now known as the Inca, or Peruvian, or Ecuador land…
(Edgar Cayce Reading 1895-1)

The entity was among those that journeyed to the land of the Incal, as now called, but then to the land of Oz and Og.
(Edgar Cayce Reading 1183-1)

From the readings we learn that these people included good engineers, and that they were great explorers and adventurers who traveled to the Yucatan, Central America, Argentina, and the American Southwest. Current archaeological data suggest that the earliest evidence of agriculture and the earliest known precincts with mounds and plazas in the Western Hemisphere occur in Peru. i

Pottery Incals

Out of this culture did Ms. 1298 travel to Florida, though at a much later date. This South American connection has been demonstrated linguistically.

In 1984 Julian Granberry published the first edition of A Grammar and Dictionary of the Timucua Language.ii In it he demonstrated that the Timucua, a group of Indians who resided in northern Florida and southern Georgia, were South American émigrés from the area of modern Colombia and Venezuela. The language family to which Timucua belongs encompasses an area extending down the Andes into Argentina, up the Isthmus of Panama into Central America, and deep into the Amazon jungles.iii Based on the measures available to him, Granberry estimated these South American immigrants arrived by at least 4,000 years ago. The trade network established by these seafaring adventurers was centered in what is now Colombia. The main trade item was pottery. In fact, the earliest pottery in North America appears on the Georgia and Florida coast, the direct result of this trade network. The Timucua were not the first South American traders to make the journey.iv

The more than four dozen readings pertaining to the Peruvian land make several assertions, including Incal influence in the American Southwest, that have yet to be demonstrated by the sciences. But, given the veracity of the ‘Incal’ influence in Florida, we can expect many interesting discoveries in the decades to come.

For the Love of Animals, Part 2
By Jennie Taylor Martin

Read Part 1 | Part 2

At this point, I felt I had a good concept of the nature of animals, but I hadn’t yet fully explored what the readings had to say about life after death for our animal friends.

As it turns out, I found Cayce’s answer in a group of readings given to several family members from February to September, 1933. Belonging to the family’s aunt and uncle was a little dog named Mona. Mona must have had quite a personality, because she was asked about in four of the readings given to this family over that eight-month period.

The first reading in which she is mentioned is for the 44-year-old aunt. The woman asked where and how she had been formerly associated with her husband, her brother, her niece, and then … there it was, “My little dog, Mona?”

To which Cayce responded that she was associated with Mona during a Roman experience. This Protestant woman, in 1933, for reasons perhaps known only to her, and for which I am very grateful, went on to ask, “Was she a dog then?” Cayce’s reply was emphatic, “A lion!” (Edgar Cayce Reading 268-3)

lioness Blog 05 2014

It didn’t stop there. This reading was followed a week later by a reading for the woman’s husband. In his reading, these questions were asked and answered:

“(Q) What relation is he to the little dog Mona?
(A) He fought with the body in the Roman experience.”

“(Q) What was Mona then?
(A) The lioness that fought with the entity, and with those that destroyed many that the entity was then seeking to aid.” (Edgar Cayce Reading 280-1)

Can you imagine this lioness trying to find expression in their home as a small domestic dog? This Mona must have been one tough little dog! Perhaps as tough as my Izzy!

Little Dog blog 052014

Next we have a reading for the woman’s 11-year-old niece. This reading was given seven months after Mona is first mentioned in the readings, and the question was asked:

“(Q) Will Mona always be a dog?”
Cayce’s reply was:
“That depends upon the environ and the surroundings. No.” (Edgar Cayce Reading 405-1)

In other words, as tough as that lioness may have been during this family’s Roman experience, if she wanted to be a companion to this family again, coming back as a lion obviously was not an option. Due to the family’s current times and living environment, she instead became Mona, a spirited little dog.

The last reading that mentions Mona is perhaps the most interesting one. It was given for the woman’s 14-year-old nephew. In his reading, the question is asked,

(Q) Could a Life Reading be obtained through these sources for Aunt [268]'s little dog Mona?
Cayce replies, “(A) May be. As to WHAT it may be is different! It may not be understood, unless you learn dog language!” (406-1)

This is a great example of Cayce’s humor in the readings, but I also think he was quite serious about that answer! And I found a collaborative reading that elaborates on this concept with this analogy:

Venture Inward According to these readings, the lives of animals do continue after death. They also reincarnate, and it appears that, like us, they may stay with certain soul groups. Just as I can imagine human souls hovering over parents, deciding upon their “re-entry,” looking for that opportunity to once again bring spirit into the earth, I now have an image of our animals doing the same thing.

For the Love of Animals, Part 1
By Jennie Taylor Martin

Read Part 1 | Part 2

I was born the youngest of seven children. This was in the 1960s when large families were not uncommon. Though we struggled financially, we always had pets. More specifically, we had a family dog, and I had mice, turtles, and a bird (cats, rabbits, gerbils, and guinea pigs would come later). My mom knew I had a passion for animals, and in spite of my family’s financial situation, she always supported my love for animals by allowing me to have pets and taking me to the zoo as often as we could manage.

pets Blog 05092014

Shortly before my ninth birthday, my dad died. It was sudden and unexpected, and it put our family on a completely different path. Wherever we were headed before, we weren’t heading that way anymore. I was young, but I understood what had happened. I knew my father was dead. I had a concept of heaven from church—I attended Sunday school each week and went to vacation Bible school during the summer. I felt confident that my dad was in heaven.

But what I wanted to know was, do animals go to heaven too? During that time period in my family’s life, while staying over my aunt and uncle’s house, my young brain was trying to sort out what I believed and what I still questioned, so I asked my aunt, “Do animals go to heaven?” Her reply was, “No, they don’t.” I adored my aunt. I admired her, and I respected her. But her response broke my heart and called into question my young faith. I told her how I felt about it. “If animals don’t go to heaven,” I said, “then I don’t want to go there either.”

There is a RiverFlash forward several years, and as a teen I started reading books of a metaphysical nature, like Richard Bach’s Illusions. My mom and I had the same taste in spiritual material, but though she was aware of Edgar Cayce, I didn’t find out about him until my mid-20s when, under synchronistic circumstances, I ended up working at A.R.E. in the Membership Department. It was 1988 when I first read There Is a River, and that’s when my spiritual studies really began to take off.

At the same time, I had become a volunteer at the local zoo that my family had visited for all those years of my childhood. My love for animals would always be a part of my nature, and no matter what I read or studied, in the back of my mind were my aunt’s words and my desire to prove them wrong, because I wanted heaven, but I wanted the animals too.

Back in the 1980s, the Cayce readings were not yet in electronic form. If you wanted to research the readings, you had to either read books and other materials by authors who had done the research and published their works, or you had to physically go to A.R.E.’s library and look them up directly. There were no published works on Edgar Cayce and animals that I could find. It was only natural that I began to research what the Cayce readings had to say about animals. I wanted to know everything. What was their nature? Did they have souls? And, of course, did they live on beyond death? My research started at the beginning with this reading:

“Spirit pushed into matter—and became what we see in our three-dimensional world as the kingdoms of the earth; the mineral, the vegetable, the animal—a three-dimensional world.” (Edgar Cayce Reading 262-114)

This reminded me of the creation verses in Genesis but with an added depth. Seeing the animals as a spiritual kingdom and an expression of spirit as it had “pushed into matter” was an interesting concept for me. I wanted to understand this better, and I also needed to know what was meant by kingdom, so my research continued. I found more with this reading:

“In the material world, where we find expressions of the physical and of the spiritual, we find Mind. Yet what is known as the Group Mind—or that of the plant kingdom, the mineral kingdom and the animal kingdom...returns (as its Destiny) to the Creative Force which is its author, its maker. MAN—the free will agent...makes his Destiny as to whether his Mind...is one with or in opposition to the Creative Forces.” (Edgar Cayce Reading 262-80)

This concept of a Group Mind sounded to me like what we call animal instinct. I did not feel that this meant animals could not also be individuals, but rather I was reminded that animals are full of innocence. As this reading seems to indicate, that’s because animals are always in accord with the Creative Forces. Whereas humans—with free will—can act in “destructive” ways that are against the Creative Forces, this reading seemed to be saying that animals cannot.

Elephants Mtn Kilimanjaro

Animals are living in accord with natural law, or the Creative Forces; that is, unless they are under the influence of a human’s free will. And yes, a human can teach a dog not to pee in the house, and yes, a human can teach an elephant to perform in a circus, but these are unnatural behaviors brought on by the force of a human’s free will (for better or for worse) and not in accord with the animals’ Group Mind (i.e., instinct or natural nature).

Because of humans’ free will, which can be used constructively or destructively, animals are dependent upon us for their wellbeing. Venture InwardAs was stated in the book of Genesis, we have dominion over animals and the earth. But since we have free will, it is our choice of how we wield it—for ill or for good, in discord or in accord with the Creative Forces.

The Mound Builders: Giant Skeletons and
the Soul’s Journey to the Sky

By Dr. Greg Little & Dr. Lora Little

Ohio mound buildersEdgar Cayce gave 68 readings that in some way related to ancient America’s history. Of those 68 readings, a total of 14 directly discussed the mound-building culture that was active in America from roughly 3000 BC to historic times. Among Cayce’s statements about the mound builders was that the culture actually moved from the south to the north. He also related that the first true mounds were built in the south around 3000 BC.

With the injection of those of greater power in their activity in the land, during that period as would be called 3,000 years before the Prince of Peace came, those peoples that were of the Lost Tribes, a portion came into the land; infusing their activities upon the peoples from Mu in the southernmost portion of that called America or United States, and then moved on to the activities in Mexico, Yucatan, centralizing that now about the spots where the central of Mexico now stands, or Mexico City. Hence there arose through the age a different civilization, a mixture again.

Those in Yucatan, those in the adjoining lands as begun by Iltar, gradually lost in their activities; and came to be that people termed, in other portions of America, the Mound Builders.
(Edgar Cayce Reading 5750-1)

Hence throughout those periods the entity became then that one that led the first establishing of the activity in the varied lands that came to be known as later the Mayan, the Yucatan, the Inca, the Peruvian—and later the Mound Builders in the northern portions of the entity’s present sojourn. [Ohio?] (1208-1)

At the time of the readings these ideas were considered preposterous to mainstream archaeology. Today that same chronology is accepted. A 2001 book (Mound Builders: Edgar Cayce’s Forgotten Record of Ancient America) that we coauthored with John Van Auken detailed all of Cayce’s readings on ancient America and how well his readings matched what was currently accepted by archaeology and the emerging genetic research. Cayce’s readings about the ancient migrations to the America’s are startling and actually are now supported by modern archaeological research.

…the second generation of Atlanteans who struggled northward from Yucatan, settling in what is now a portion of Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio; being among those of the earlier period known as Mound Builders.

Then the entity was among those who supplied to the peoples the fruits of the soil, learning how to crack corn, wheat and grain, that it might be prepared into foods through cooking—though much in those periods was taken raw.
(Edgar Cayce Reading 3528-1)

According to Cayce, the mounds were erected as replicas of the Yucatan, Atlantis, and Gobi experiences. The mounds and earthworks were built by people migrating into the Americas in several waves beginning as long as 50,000 years ago. These waves of people entering the Americas merged with the tribes already present.

For some years we have conducted A.R.E. tours of America’s mounds. While the mounds and earthworks of ancient America are truly worthy of visits on their own merit, the major reason the A.R.E. has sponsored tours of them is because they are mentioned in Cayce’s readings.

The A.R.E. Ohio/West Virginia Mound Builders Tour from July 8-13, 2014 will visit nearly 50 mounds. For the first time be allowed access to mound sites that mimic the layout of the Center City of Atlantis as described by Plato some 2,400 years ago. We will also visit the largest and most extensive set of geometric earthworks in the world in Newark, Ohio.

At Newark there remains a well-maintained set of earthworks that nearly defies description. A near-perfect circular earthwork formed by an outer wall of earth 8-14 feet high encloses 20 acres. Attached to the circle is a massive octagon formed by walls of earth. The octagon encloses 50 acres. At each corner of the octagon stands a truncated earthen pyramid.

It is accepted by mainstream archaeology that its function was to chart the 18.61-year cycle of the moon enabling the builders to predict eclipses. Also in Newark is a massive circular formation formed by a 14-foot high earthen wall with a 7-foot deep moat on the inside. There is one opening into the circle.

One of the key pieces of information that we’ll be presenting on the tour is precisely what these ancient people believed about death. Incredibly, the ideas we’ll present were only recently revealed by mainstream archaeologists. We’ll explore the journey of the soul in detail and visit Great Circle where we’ll conduct a Native American ceremony. Great Circle was a magic machine of earth, which was used as a way of pointing souls in the right direction and propelling them into the sky. Ceremonies will be performed at several sites along the way.

Some of the new mound sites we will visit are places where giant skeletons were reportedly excavated. There are more than 1,000 old newspaper accounts of giant skeletal remains being found at mound sites, most of which come from excavations done by the Smithsonian Institute in the 1800s. Many writers have accused the Smithsonian of being involved in a cover-up and conspiracy. It is a fascinating story and one that has both truth and exaggeration in it. But there actually were numerous skeletons excavated from mounds indicating that the individuals who were buried ranged from 7 feet to nearly 9 feet in height. Where did they come from and why were these tall people so revered as to be buried in the most prominent tombs?

The entity’s sojourns then were with those of a race of unusual height, unusual proportions to what might be termed in the present. For they were then the lords of the land… (1298-1)

What we hope to do on this tour is to truly explain what these mysterious people believed, why they constructed these incredible earthen formations, and what the implications of it might be. Some of the ceremonies we’ll perform will mirror what the Mound builders actually did at the sites. We’ll also explain the truth about the giant skeleton controversy. The facts of this story are actually much more interesting and intriguing than any fictional story generated to explain it. Andrew Collins and Greg Little are completing a well-illustrated book on the topic of America’s mound builders, the giant skeletons, and their beliefs about death. We plan on having it completed by the time of the tour.
