Sir Peter Paul Rubens (artist) Flemish, 1577 – 1640. The Meeting of Abraham and Melchizedek, c. 1626
According to the Cayce readings, the Book of Job was written by the high priest Melchizedek, the King of Salem (King of Peace, predecessor to the Prince of Peace), as a guide to all incarnate souls concerning Earth life.
The morning stars
by John Van Auken
In the accompanying verses, God was demanding that Job search his heart for answers to some very strange questi ons, such as:
Where were you when the foundations of the Earth were laid out? To Job and to each of us today, this is a strange question indeed.
We feel so connected to physical life that how could we possibly have been anywhere when the foundations of the Earth were set!
But we were — a godly part of us, made in the image of the Creator.
According to this legend, on that first morning, flush with life — our young minds ablaze with wonder — we godlings began to explore the Cosmos.
As children do, we peered into the many mansions of our Father’s house and found wonders upon wonders.
Eventually, some of us came to this present solar system, with its beautiful star and nine planets.
Our first appearance here was not an incarnation, per se, because there were no human bodies then.
In that dawn we were minds in the breeze, voices in the wind — voices foretelling of the eventual coming of humanity.
With a youthful joy, we looked forward to entering this new realm and exploring its wonders.
Earth was not the only planet we visited, nor was the third dimension our primary level of consciousness. The universe was ours to enjoy.
By doing so, we would grow to become true companions to the Creator of the universe, who loves us and longs to enjoy our companionship.
In quiet moments we may sense the truth of this story.
As the psalmist wrote of us: “Ye are gods, all of you sons [and daughters] of the Most High,” Ps. 82:6.
How have we lost touch with this truth? How have we become so terrestrial, so temporary?
Where is our celestial, eternal nature, our mind that once flew through the Cosmos? Cayce says that it is still within us, waiting to be awakened!
He says that each of us can find it in the depths of sleep and dreams, prayers and meditations, and by letting God’s spirit flow into our physical lives and the lives of those around us.
This world has now become an important part of our soul growth.
Einstein once said: “The human mind is unable to conceive of the four dimensions. How can it conceive of a God, before whom a thousand years and a thousand dimensions are as one?”
