Cayce "Personality is that which ye wish others to think and see. Individuality is that which your soul prays for, hopes for, desires. These (two) need not necessarily be one; but their purpose must be one, even as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are one. So must body, mind and soul be one in purpose and in aim." [Cayce (5246)]
Dialogue on Awakening "I have referred to a concept I describe as the power of one, the power that results from individual expressions of the Infinite Mind as they come into recognition of their absolute unity - the infinite expression of wholeness, or one. It is this truth when fully grasped that will allow you to recognize your individuality in the whole, as the whole, expressing the whole and coincidentally being wholly, uniquely you.
"But you will not be lost, you will not dissolve within a common pot. Your identity, your true identity - and that is not a descriptive phrase as would be appropriate in reality, but I will use it here - your true identity is forever safely remembered and sacred in the Mind of God.
"I know that you can be easily confused when I say you are me, and I am you, and we are one. That could lead you to believe that there is no recognition of your Self. What I am more appropriately trying to convey is that there is no difference in the recognition of our Selves and what we express, and what we extend as the creative aspect of our Father. That becomes whole, that becomes totally unified and we express it together, and there is no difference in our expression of it. Therein lies our unification and our wholeness. And there too, lies your sacred individuality in its entire Divinity. You see, you have not dissolved or gone away." [Dialogue on Awakening, pages 4, 6]
Russell "As long as man continues to think of his body as being his individuality he will think individually, rather than universally. When he, at long last, discovers his eternal Self to be the projector of his own body, and is making himself in his own image, he will then know his universality, his Oneness with all Creation. He can never thereafter think of himself as an individual and will so act in all of his transactions in relation to his Oneness with all other men." [Atomic Suicide, page 265-266]
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth "(However, at the moment of creation, two BASIC IMPULSES came into being, ensuring individuality, and it was these which controlled mankind's consciousness. These IMPULSES were explained to me in detail but this knowledge is reserved for a future Letter when you will be better able to understand it) ................................ ." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 1, page 17]
"I, the CHRIST, am writing this LETTER 5 to clearly define the hidden REALITY, which I will also refer to as the 'UNIVERSAL' and 'DIVINE' to help you stretch your minds to understand that whilst you are an 'individual, THAT WHICH HAS GIVEN YOU 'BEING' AND 'INDIVIDUALITY' is ITSELF Universal - Eternal - Infinite - Everywhere without beginning or end. For the sake of those people who have chosen to read LETTER 5 before my earlier Letters describing my life and true teachings on earth, I will make a further statement that my true 'Jesus' CHRIST self must not in any way be confused with the 'Jesus' recorded in the New Testament.
Since my original teachings, in the form of the four Gospels, have been distributed world-wide and grossly misinterpreted, it is my intention to begin teaching TRUTH of EXISTENCE by explaining the true meaning of my original terminology as quoted in the Gospels. This is necessary to dispel and eventually eradicate from people's consciousness the misunderstandings which have persisted and misinformed generations of spiritual seekers since my life on earth." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 1]
"The equilibrium - the restraint between opposing IMPULSES - 'to move about' and 'remain bonded' creates an infinite spiral of self-contained energy. The SELF-CONTAINED ENERGY of MUTUAL RESTRAINT is beyond the power of individuality to even imagine." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 20]
"As I have told you before, were individuality able to enter the UNIVERSAL DIMENSION of the MUTUALLY-RESTRAINED IMPULSES of 'Movement & Bonding' - the individuality would be immediately dissolved and returned to the equilibrium of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS. Ponder the unimaginable immensity of Power contained within the MUTUAL-RESTRAINT of the TWIN IMPULSES in UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS which are primarily
"By working together as a team, separately but inseparable, in the visible world, these twin impulses were the means by which the substance of 'matter' itself has been created out of the sublime 'UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS'.
One impulse of creativity is: the 'I'ness of ACTIVITY. This impulse of activity is universal and stems from only one source. 'Activity' is a movement in CONSCIOUSNESS, and CONSCIOUSNESS in movement. The other creative impulse possesses (figuratively speaking) two faces looking in opposite directions. They are:
These are the ONLY means by which earthly existence has been achieved.
The entire universe is a manifestation of the 'Creative Power' active within these Twin Impulses of PHYSICAL BEING - creating 'matter' and individual form. This is one of the fundamental 'secrets' of the universe.
I saw that the 'core' of the 'Personality' or 'ego' as it is now called, had been created 'GUARDIAN of PERSONALITY' and was irresistibly imprinted with the magnetic impulse to ensure PRIVACY and SURVIVAL. For the protection of the individual 'I'ness This was accomplished by using the two faces of the second Impulse of Being
BONDING - REJECTION to secure individuality.
"This is why there was a struggle between my humanly entrenched Ego and my 'Father-Mother Consciousness' during the very strident temptations I experienced at the end of my enlightenment in the desert. Satan had nothing to do with the tug-of-war which took place within my consciousness. The war was waged between the
transcendent, yet with in me and which would gradually take over my individuality to an ever greater extent if I continually meditated and cleared my consciousness of selfish impulses." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 5, page 27]
