the-book-of-revelation

AngelicView: There is a set of DVD’s from McMillin Media which have been put out on You Tube (published on You Tube by McMillin Media) for free – all on the readings of Edgar Cayce. The “Rivers of Light” portion of these sets of DVD’s focuses on Edgar Cayce’s visions regarding what was talked about in The Book of Revelations in the Bible. The playlist consists of 18 videos. The good news (since I know a lot of people would rather read than watch videos) is that below each video is a written account that is almost word-for-word of what’s in the video. And since posting multiple videos is a bit time-consuming, posting the words would also be quicker and easier for me, too.

If you would rather watch the playlist of videos instead of reading about it, then click the link below. It will take you to the first video in the playlist. After each video ends, you do not need to do anything as it will automatically go on to the next video in the playlist.

Introduction

 Rivers of Light: Introduction — Excerpted from a DVD that I created, these video segments represent a personal interpretation of the Revelation based on the readings of Edgar Cayce. The Cayce approach to the last book of the Bible provides unique and powerful insights into the mystical experience revealed to John on the Island of Patmos. In essence, Cayce insists that John’s vision is about the process of enlightenment through spiritual initiation resulting in “rivers of light.”

On several occasions Edgar Cayce stated that the Revelation deals with the anatomy and physiology of the body. Cayce even recommended Gray’s Anatomy as a study guide for those seeking to understand the symbols of John’s vision. Cayce observed that the spiritual centers of the body are glands and nerves that are symbolized as churches, candlesticks, and angels in the Revelation.

According to Cayce, many of the symbols also represent psycho-spiritual processes related to the soul’s journey through materiality — over many lifetimes. This relates to that portion of the Revelation in which the two witnesses testify. The Cayce readings identify the two witnesses as past lives on earth (reincarnation) and past lives on other planets and star systems in the cosmos (astrological sojourns).

Cayce insists that Armageddon is the war within each individual. And thus the Cayce approach interprets each symbol, each force within the Revelation at the personal, individual level. This is the story of the soul making its way through eternity, finding its way back to the its Source. This is the Edgar Cayce model of enlightenment. The kundalini energy is raised along the spiritual centers resulting in a crown of light. Cayce said that the crown of light (halo) can become as “rivers of light” when it is directed out into the world for the benefit of others.

In this series of videos I share some of my experiences of applying the Edgar Cayce approach while also discussing common issues relevant to anyone on the spiritual path.

The Vision Begins

As the Revelation begins, John, the beloved disciple of Jesus, was in exile on the Isle of Patmos in the eastern Mediterranean Sea off the coast of modern Turkey. Then it was simply called Asia. Patmos was a mining colony. John was a prisoner there doing forced labor.

While in deep meditation John hears a great voice like a trumpet blast coming from behind him. The voice tells him to write down what he sees and hears and send it to seven churches in Asia.

When John turns to see who is commanding him to write, he sees seven candlesticks. In the midst of the candlesticks is one like unto the Son of man. In his right hand are seven stars. Out of his mouth comes a two-edged sword signifying that what he will say will cut deep into John’s psyche.

John is told that the seven stars represent the angels of the seven churches. The seven candlesticks also symbolized the seven churches.

In his interpretation of this passage, Cayce informs us that at a physical level the churches symbolize the seven major endocrine glands, which are spiritual centers in the body. Just as a church building is a sacred meeting place, each endocrine gland is a meeting place where the divine manifests in the physical form.

The symbols and emblems that John sees in his vision are merely representations of the forces within each of us. He is talking about mental and emotional patterns such as desire, fear, and joy. The glands and nerves in our bodies are the channels through which these patterns play out.

Understanding how these symbols relate to each of us as individuals is the real key to working with the revelation.

Self Analysis

Chapters 2 through 4 of the Revelation represent an analysis of John’s psyche. The strengths and weaknesses of each of the seven churches represent John’s strengths and weaknesses as they pertain to each of the seven spiritual centers.

By identifying the churches in the revelation as spiritual centers, Cayce is consistent with some of the great mystical traditions of enlightenment. By linking the spiritual centers to endocrine glands, Cayce identifies the connection of the soul to the body.

The Eastern approaches to Enlightenment speak of chakras or whirling vertices of energy in much the same way as Cayce views the spiritual centers in the revelation. The chakras are storehouses of soul memories and patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving sometimes referred to as karma.

Throughout the ages, sages and philosophers have told us to “know thyself.” This is what we are talking about here. We are to know ourselves as souls. This is true psychology – the psyche meaning the soul; ology meaning knowledge. Psychology in its original meaning is soul knowledge.

As an exercise in self analysis, Edgar Cayce encourages each of us to do a self inventory similar to John’s vision in chapters 2 through 4.

Each of us are to look within to see what our issues are for each of the seven centers. What are the strengths and weaknesses. In what are we lacking? Are we hot or cold? Have we been negligent in some way or yielded to temptation? Do we have exceptional talents and abilities to draw upon?

As a personal example of how to use the Revelation for the process of self analysis, I present four dreams that provide a foundation for my own self analysis.

If you choose to work with this process you will get in touch with deep soul issues that involve choices for you. This is the path of enlightenment that is the ultimate revelation – the revelation of self.

The Throne Room

Chapter Four of the Revelation states that John was in spirit, meaning that he had altered his consciousness – allowing him to be instantly present in the throne room.

The Edgar Cayce readings identify the Throne Room as the brain with its nerves and glands. For example, the twenty-four elders represent the 24 cranial nerves. The practical implications of Cayce’s approach are discussed with regard to deep meditation and how the spiritual centers in the brain are attuned when entering the silence.

(AV: This video is much more involved than it’s description. Click Here to watch, if you want.)

Opening the Seals

Chapters 5 through 8 of the Revelation focus on the opening of the seals on the book. The question is raised: Who is worthy to open the seals? The answer is the sacrificial lamb that is slain. This is usually interpreted to refer to Jesus as the lamb of God that was slain for the sins of the world. I believe this is part of the answer.

In keeping with Cayce’s model of self analysis, I believe that self sacrifice is also required. In other words, we are to follow the example of Jesus in this regard in surrendering ourselves, and our wills to the will of the Divine. Jesus showed us the way and set the example. It is our choice to follow. This is what I was referring to when I interpreted my second dream involving the leydig center.

I know this is probably somewhat controversial, especially to persons with a fundamental Christian belief system. I understand that approach – I was raised in the Church of God sect of Christianity. Jesus’ self sacrifice is a powerful metaphor. I can only speak from my own experience. When I consciously made choices to set myself aside for the welfare of others, I experienced the opening of the centers and the raising of the divine energy within me.

In the yogic traditions it is called kundalini. Edgar Cayce also used this term. But this energy goes by many names in various cultures and I think it is the same energy that is felt by Christians who experience the Holy Spirit and have mystical experiences such as speaking in tongues and the power to heal.

The Sounding of the 7 Angels

After the opening of the seventh seal, John sees seven angels standing before the throne with seven trumpets. Edgar Cayce affirms that the sounding of the seven angels represents the experience of physical purification.

The sounding of a trumpet indicates sensory system activation – the 24 elders or cranial nerves have been stimulated. Thus, we can expect to experience some type of sensation as the trumpets are sounded.

The opening of the seventh seal or spiritual center represents the pituitary or master gland at the physical level.

Physiologically, the sounding of the seven angels relates to the pituitary gland’s role as regulator of the entire glandular system. In this case, it is for the purification of the body that the hormones are being poured out into the circulation as each trumpet is sounded.

Keep in mind that Cayce insisted that virtually all of the Revelation correlates to physiological processes in the body.

(AV: More Here – on physical symptoms of the purification and cleansing of the body.)

Sweet & Bitter Initiation

After the sounding of the sixth trumpet, another mighty angel came down from heaven. He held a little book in his hand. He told John to eat the book. He said that it would be sweet in the mouth like honey, but bitter in the belly.

John obeyed the angel and ate the book. Sure enough, it was sweet in the mouth and bitter in the belly.

Edgar Cayce tells us that this story is about what happens to us once we have an understanding of our emotions and spiritual principles. Then we have to apply what we have learned. The process is one of spiritual initiation.

Cayce says that this is part of everyone’s spiritual journey. When we learn about spiritual truth, it is sweet in the mind to contemplate and sweet in mouth to discuss. But when we have to live that truth in the midst of life, it can become very bitter to stomach.

Again, this is part of the purification process. We come to know who we are and what we believe by application of spiritual truth. This is how we are transformed.

Measuring the Temple

When John has fully digested the book, the angel gives him a rod to measure the temple of God. Edgar Cayce tells us that this is the process of setting “metes and bounds.” In other words, we must determine for ourselves what sort of inner temple we will construct in our consciousness to commune with the divine.

Cayce says John is using the Jewish tradition of the holy temple with its layers of sacredness as a metaphor of consciousness. The outer court of the temple is the conscious mind with all its worldly concerns.

The inner court is the unconscious mind with its awareness of the sacred. The superconscious mind represents the “holy of holies” where the arc of the covenant is kept. This is the most sacred place in our consciousness where we meet our Creator.

As we go through the purification process described in the previous sections, we are preparing ourselves for communion with the divine. We are building a temple within our own consciousness. What will be the measuring rod for its construction? By what ideal will we choose what to bring into the temple and what to leave without?

What will be the metes and bounds of the temple’s dimensions? Will the temple be a little shed that we seldom visit? Will the temple be kept clean and purified? Remember that there is a physiological dimension to all of this.

These are choices that we must make with regard to how we will meet with the divine. We are at a stage in the enlightenment process where we need to pay attention to the inner temple of consciousness as well as the outer temple of the body.

Will the “metes and bounds” of the temple be determined by an external religious system or creed? Will it be measured by your own sense of inner devotion and ritual life? These are the choices that you will make as you measure your inner temple.

The Two Witnesses

As part of the process of becoming self-aware, we come to recognize the continuity of consciousness. In other words, we live multiple lives. Edgar Cayce tells us that the little book that is sweet in the mouth and bitter in the belly is the “Book of Life” or “book of remembrance” that contains the story of our past lives as well as our present incarnation.

So the self-analysis process goes on and on – we are constantly being given the opportunity to know ourselves. This is part of the initiation, the purification of mental and emotional patterns that we carry over from one existence to another.

In Chapter Eleven the mighty angel that gave John the book, tells him that two witnesses will be given the power to prophesy and testify. They will be killed and after three days will be raised up and ascend into heaven.

Cayce tells us that the two witnesses, also symbolized as two trees and two candlesticks, represent our past lives in the earth (reincarnation) and our past lives in other realms (planetary sojourns associated with astrology).

Woman and the Red Dragon

After the seven angels had sounded their trumpets, John witnessed a dramatic chase scene involving a pregnant woman being pursued across the skies by a red dragon with seven heads and seven golden crowns.

(AV: Sorry but this is all the description has on this one. He says that “we are like a pregnant woman about ready to give birth to a new being. We are talking about a spiritual rebirth. The great red dragon represents the spirit of rebellion that can trace it’s heritage all the way back to that original rebellion and separation and rebellion that is symbolized to John as a dragon that is defeated and cast out of heaven. The beast is about to abort the spiritual rebirth. But the woman is protected, and allowed to deliver her son safely.”)

Two More Beasts

Chapter 13 begins with another great beast making its appearance by rising up out of the sea. It is a leopard beast with the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion. It has seven heads and ten horns with ten crowns.

This beast is empowered by the great red dragon. This is the beast of blasphemy that brings forth fear in the mind.

One of the heads is wounded and miraculously healed. The feat is awe inspiring.

Then another beast comes up out of the earth with two horns and a voice like the great red dragon. This is the false prophet of selfishness – the antichrist.

Its two horns symbolize double-mindedness. This beast is able to do great miracles – to heal the sick and cast out demons. Yet it’s ultimate agenda is self-indulgence and self-glorification. This beast is a deceiver. Beware of its dual nature.

In the yogic traditions, the manifestations of this beast are known as siddhis. Siddhis are psychic abilities and powers that are experienced as part of the enlightenment process. The yogis are careful to guide their students beyond the siddhis. Otherwise the individual can get into a power trip of self delusion.

In John’s vision, the false prophet with two horns requires that everyone receive a mark of 666 on their forehead or right hand. Cayce tells us that the mark of the beast signifies our allegiance to any group or organization that is based on selfish ideals.

This is particularly true with regard to work. Whether we work with our minds (as symbolized by the mark on the forehead) or with our hands, the mark becomes our identity. Think of it as a company logo or other symbol of our involvement. We must be careful in choosing our associations so that we are not deceived by the double-minded consciousness that projects itself in one sense, but is really the opposite.

We will encounter the manifestation of this “beast of self” a little later when we discuss Babylon the Great. We will also take a closer look at the sacredness of work in a later section.

The 7 Plagues

Wouldn’t it be nice if spiritual transformation were a linear process? Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just desire to be perfect and everything would fall neatly into place? No problems, no suffering, no failures? Well, it’s just not that simple or easy.

If we use the Revelation as a roadmap to spiritual enlightenment, we need to be aware that the road has obstacles along the way, so that we are not blindsided by our own ignorance.

In chapters 15 and 16, John describes the pouring out of plagues by seven angels. In other words, as spiritual transformation proceeds, further initiation and purification is required as we continue to meet ourselves — to meet the patterns of selfishness that we have taken on in this and previous lifetimes.

This is a karmic reckoning. The good news is that John describes this as the “last seven plagues.” Finally, a light at the end of the tunnel of transformation.

This is the portion of the Revelation where we hear of Armageddon. In keeping with a personal interpretation of the Revelation, Armageddon represents an inner conflict.

In referring to the various symbols of the Revelation, Cayce called them all “forces that may war within the individual in its journey through the material” realm.

Considering that some people use Armageddon to signify a world war or nuclear holocaust, we can only wonder at the power of this symbol in terms of inner turmoil.

Not a pleasant thought, is it?

The point is, don’t be surprised or discouraged if the road to enlightenment gets pretty rough and bumpy along the way. Even after you have made some substantial progress in spiritual development, there are still challenges and plagues ahead.

It may even seem that there is a war going on within. This is not necessarily a bad sign, only an indication that we are on the path.

Babylon the Great

In Chapter 17, an angel tells John about Babylon the great, who is described as a whore sitting on a scarlet beast having seven heads and ten horns.

The woman is dressed in purple and scarlet and on her forehead is written: “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

Edgar Cayce interpreted Babylon the great as a symbol of self – of self in its extreme selfish sense. You will recall that in Cayce’s cosmology, the creation story tells of the creation of the separate sense self that comes with being soul. We are to “know ourselves to be ourselves, and yet one with the whole.”

A separate sense of self is not the problem. The problem is when the sense of self becomes self-centered. Then we loose our sense of perspective and abandon our relationship to the whole.

We are lost, just Jesus pointed out in his parables of the lost lamb and the prodigal son. This is the ultimate meaning of Babylon — extreme selfishness in all its manifestations.

In John’s Revelation, Babylon the great is the temptress that operates through the carnal desires that we have taken on when we became incarnate in flesh bodies.

Again I am referring to Cayce’s cosmology where soul’s became entangled in flesh bodies and lost the innate spiritual ability to create and produce directly.

Procreation became essentially a sensual, physical process. This is symbolic of our separation from our Source, of our intense focus in material reality to the neglect of the spiritual side of life.

As spiritualization progresses, Babylon must fall. The unhealthy, selfish consciousness must give way to a broader awareness of the connectedness and oneness of all things.

Merchants of the Earth

The fall of Babylon and the shift in consciousness to a more spiritual focus will change the way we do business. The theme of righteous work and sacred activity is inherent in John’s Revelation.

In Cayce’s interpretation of the Revelation, we are constantly reminded of the importance of application and activity. Spirituality is not a passive process, it is very active.

Our activity, whether we call it work or a job or whatever, is essential to the transformational process. As Cayce often put it, don’t just be good, but be good for something.

This is in contrast to some spiritual traditions in which enlightenment is sought by withdrawing from the world. In Cayce’s model, we are encouraged to work out our spirituality in the midst of life, where we live and work.

In Chapter 18, we are told that with the fall of Babylon the merchants of the earth weep and mourn because no one will buy their merchandise. The old way of doing business, of catering to carnal desires for profit, is no longer acceptable.

Have you ever noticed that the formula used by many for getting rich simply involves taking the seven deadly sins, and finding a way to package and market them to the masses. If you can present vice in a way that makes the person feel good about it, you will reap more profit.

Just watch the TV commercials and movies that the entertainment and advertising industry throw at us. Sin is very big business.

If our livelihood is dependent on work that is unholy, or if our work is associated with an unholy organization, then spiritual transformation can present a special challenge. Remember the mark of the beast – the identity that we assume as an agent of material consciousness.

When we realize that we must bring our vocation into line with our spiritual ideals, that part of ourselves is likely to cry out, as the merchants of the earth in John’s vision.

Marriage of the Lamb

After all the purification and initiation, of working through the plagues and meeting of karma, it is about time for a celebration. In chapter 19 we are invited to a wedding feast – the marriage of the lamb. You will recall the throne room scene with the lamb that is slain – the lamb that opened the seals of the book.

In John’s vision, his awareness is shifted back to the throne room where the 24 elders and 4 beasts have bowed down and worshipped God on the throne.

The heavens are opened and a being called “FAITHFUL AND TRUE” rides forth on a great white horse. His eyes are like a flame of fire and he wears a white robe dripped in blood. Out of his mouth protrudes a sharp sword.

You will recognize this figure as the SON OF MAN that stood among the candlesticks at the beginning of John’s vision.

The marriage of the lamb represents the complete spiritualization of body, mind, and spirit so as to produce a new being. The wedding feast is the experience of mystical union with the divine.

Horses tend to be symbols of messengers. In this instance the rider on the horse represents the Christ as a messenger.

In John’s vision, the being on the horse defeats the beast of blasphemy and the false prophet. They are cast into a lake of burning fire.

This is the imagery of hell and damnation that is popular with many of the fundamental Christian sects.

When asked about punishment by fire and brimstone, Edgar Cayce stated that this imagery is symbolic of the hell that we create for ourselves.

The fire can purify us if we are obedient. If we persist with rebellion, we can only expect more suffering.

Satan Loosed Again

In chapter 20 we find that the red dragon has been chained and cast into a bottomless pit where he is to remain bound for a thousand years.

For a period time there is peace and bliss before the dragon is once again allowed freedom for a little season.

The great red dragon is defeated once again and thrown into the lake of fire where the beast of blasphemy and the false prophet had been cast.

There is a final judgment where all are called to account before God.

The release of the red dragon is a final temptation, a final test of our spirituality.

It seems that the trials and tribulations come in cycles.

We make some spiritual progress and experience the joy and bliss of communion with the Divine, and yet our education is not complete.

We must go back to school and work on our lessons to become fit companions to the Creator, as was the original plan.

Just when we think that we have arrived, that our soul growth is complete, we are tempted once again as a test of our progress.

The New Jerusalem

With the final conquest and banishment of the red dragon, the beast of blasphemy, and the false prophet, there is created a new heaven and new earth. We are new beings, in every sense.

The physical body has been transformed by the glandular forces that have purified the emotions. The mind is purified of carnal thoughts and selfish attitudes. The spirit is cooperative and loving with no hint of rebellion or blasphemy.

This is the new Jerusalem that John experiences in the last chapters of the Revelation.

Jerusalem symbolizes the holy place, the sacredness of our new consciousness, of a meeting place with the divine.

In John’s vision, the new Jerusalem descends from heaven. It is foursquare with a measurement of 144 cubits on each side.

The walls are built of jasper and the foundation of the walls are of all manner of precious gems. The city is made of pure gold. There are twelve gates made of pearl.

Through the city runs a river of pure water with the tree of life on either side of the river. There is no more suffering, only peace.

This final segment of John’s vision represents the culmination of the spiritual journey – enlightenment in the spiritual sense.

8 thoughts on “Edgar Cayce: “Rivers of Light”

  1. I really love this analogy…I did feel it really resonated within-even as a Christian, but I am a more unconventional type that is open to more than most or more than I can even speak about with others. BUT could it be possible that as un-enlightened beings there is a processes to become spiritual inwardly, but that there will also be external changes or a physical catharsis that go along with it. Such as Global metamorphosis. If everyone and everything is connected just as we have growing pains personally-the world at large will also experience those same pains to reach a culmination and awakening of consciousness. I am a Christian, yet I see how beautiful Cayce’s interpretation is symbolically and energetically, as I am currently going through my own awakening process. However, I still believe the world as a whole would or may be impacted in an “Armageddon” purification process. Not for eternal damnation purposes. But for spiritual “Re-birth” to take place in the physical realm as well. If that makes sense. The saying goes, “As so within-so it is without.” Not just for self but for the shifting of the whole physical dimension-into a New Paradigm. The old wineskins must be replaced with new wineskins. If ones consciousness reflects it outer world. Than elevating Global consciousness would reflect major external conflict until it reaches that point. As war & 911 etc, has often done to get us to new levels of awareness of how we are connected and how our choices as a whole do impact present, and future outcomes. To summarize, I just don’t believe Revelations or Cayce’s interpretations ONLY had symbolic implications and not other external consequences to serve as a catalyst to achieve an ultimate goal of planetary ONENESS.

    However, overall, I am so pleased to come across information like this because I always feel like its pointing me one step at a time in the right direction along my journey. 🙂

    • Violet01 – I totally see what you mean! External world wars are a representation of our internal wars. I believe as we are going through this process back to God, we will experience many external ars such as what we’re going through with ISIS in Middle East. As Above, So Below; as within, so without. I saw a video on YouTube that interpreted the whore of Babylon to mean the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia will be destroyed and will no longer be producing oil for the rest of the world and the merchants of the world will weep.

  2. No wonder it takes a 1000 years of rest before the next class. The process sounds exhausting. I’ve been through quite a few Armageddons with myself. The same things that people take lives for in the outside world, are the things we battle with ourselves about.

    I’ve battled with my Religion, and overly logical thinking (in the form of Science). In the end, you don’t dishonor your opponent (if you are an honorable warrior), but gain a new understanding and respect for them. Religion and Science are both wonderful opponents, who can either cripple you if used incorrectly, or aid you in coming to new understanding.

    The trick with Religion, is to let go of the Fear and misrepresentations of God. To truly trust in a divine plan, despite all the difficulties of the world. If God/Source is anything like what the more poetic verses throughout history describe him/her/it as. There is nothing to Fear.

    A great many people have used Religion to understand the divine in life, and to live a better life. The trick is not to get caught up in the human spin others have put on Religion. Hate has no place in Divine Love. If I look at even the Religion that filled me with Fear and hate for myself, with the eyes of the understanding, I will fine Gold.

    Science too is Gold, but only when used with true understanding. Without understanding it can be used to agree that people without perfect genes shouldn’t breed. The greatest scientists, like the famous Albert Einstein, would never make such a statement. Or many of the horrible other statements that come from people misusing incomplete knowledge. Science is incomplete, and a good Scientist recognizes that fact. We don’t understand the process of evolution, and good genes vs bad, to the point we can safely rule particular gene should not continue.

    Perhaps in the end that is what GMO’s will teach us. We boldly used incomplete knowledge of genes to create new food which we thought was harmless. We didn’t take into consideration how that would effect our bodies. Once society discovers its effects, it might take a long time before we sees science in the same light. Perhaps the negative effects of food GMO’s will keep humans from becoming GMO’s themselves.

    Sorry, I have written a long comment. The University I work at is in Spring Break, so no one is asking for help. I am passing the time by writing a long comment.
