The Bible teaches man how to LIVE not how to DIE.
Within your soul is all the Knowingness, Assurance, Self-confidence, Caring, Wisdom and Strength you’ll ever need in this lifetime.
Seek and Ye shall find them.
This is my longing desire for you. Be ye holy

There is no secret initiation, no mystery in God. You only need the
heart of the child to enter the kingdom.
It is true in a beautiful sense that
there is nothing hidden which shall not be revealed.
All things are open and
are yours. You are not always able to understand because you are not
sufficiently evolved; but never forget that all is yours,
for ye are God's.

I Am the I Am that I Am
Regardless of how we may perceive ourselves to be; from moment to moment throughout our daily life experiences; the Vibration of our self, coupled with the Vibration
of our surroundings … not just our immediate
surroundings, we must include… our entire region … expanding out to our entire country … even out to the entire Earth itself … THAT PART OF "US" that we are experiencing from moment to moment, can be likened to being a ball of Energy .
The level we CHOOSE to BE in … within that ball of ENERGY … can AND will vary at
different stages/frequencies throughout the course of our daily life.
As we journey through our daily life and as we are able to achieve a certain increased level of awareness … the
lower Vibrations of the ball of ENERGY begins to ‘dissipate’ and we eventually loose our ability or rather our desire to access it.
Eventually the lower energetic frequencies disintegrates. Why? - because it has run its
course. It has served its purpose and it is no longer needed.
Whenever this occurs … the ball of ENERGY that WE ARE begins to expand; or rather begins to go deeper within us to access ever deeper levels of vibrational energy; that is in reality at the very top end of the energy scale.
It is in this way that we are able to
continue to access continually Higher and Higher levels of our soul-self. It increases to the degree that OUR increasing levels of awareness permits.
The experience can be likened to climbing a ladder. As one ascends the ladder … the bottom rungs of the ladder are removed and more rungs are added to the top.
Thus, the journey called life is one that is ever upward; that is, ever deeper inward and trying to look back or rather look outwards for verification and validation of ones choices, may well leave one feeling dizzy and disoriented; as one will soon realize that the 'rungs', or rather, the energies which once provided support are no longer available or accessible.
"What we first create inward, we eventually live / experience outward."
DECODING THE BIBLE
Interpretation of the Book of Revelation
Read by Brian Scott
Edgar Cayce approaches the Revelation most closely to the traditional symbolic interpretation. But he saw beyond the symbolism of earthly matters, seeing the text filled with metaphors of mental and spiritual matters. In fact, Cayce teaches that the whole Bible is more than a historic record of humanity’s physical journey with God and with one another; it is also an allegory of metaphysical activities and influences. And as an allegory it contains hidden teachings, insights, lessons, and instructions concerning the origin, growth, and destiny of our nonphysical souls. And it is both a microcosmic view in which the story is very personal to each individual soul, and a macrocosmic view in which all souls are involved as a soul group.
For example, he taught that the biblical Adam did not only represent an individual soul but an entire soul group. (EC 900-227) And that our souls were among that group, a group called in the Book of Job the “Morning Stars.” Here’s that text: “Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, saying, 舖Where were you when I laid the foundations of the Earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who laid the cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?’” (Job 38:1-7)
Our souls were alive long before this incarnation and will live long after it. According to Cayce, the Bible tells the story of our souls’ journey (individually and as a group) from our creation in the image of God, through the fall from grace and the loss of the Garden, up through the struggles to regain that glory that was ours “before the world was.” (EC 1158-9 and John 17:5)
The Revelation, according to Cayce, is a very special part of the great biblical story and should be studied as a kind of roadmap for the final spiritualization of our bodies and minds to fully reach our intended purpose for existence: eternal companionship with our Creator.
The psalmist wrote: “I say, You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you.’” (Ps. 82:7) And even Jesus addressed this: “Is it not written in your law, I said, you are gods’? If he called them gods to whom the word of God came (and scripture cannot be broken), do you say of him whom the Father consecrated and sent into the world, You are blaspheming,’ because I said, I am the Son of God’?”
A Commentary Based On
The Study of 24 Psychic Discourses
by Edgar Cayce
The Hidden Mystery of the Bible
This book helps us to understand the parables and things of the spirit
as discerned by the spirit. Mr. Addington's goal is to show us that the
Bible is a storehouse of inspiration designed to fit every human need,
a treasure trove of usable ideas, an infinite source of wisdom, and most
of all, a book of life. It is the compilation of Mr. Addington's years
of work in which he uses
his extensive knowledge acquired through years of Bible teaching and
studies. You follow him through his discovery of a code existing in the
Bible in which one is able to follow the 'path of enlightenment'. This
path of enlightenment is the same path which the 'mystics' used.
This book is not an attempt to interpret the entire Bible, but to show
through examples how a secret code unlocks the hidden meaning
throughout the writings of the Bible.
In trying to understand the seemingly meaningless portions of the
Bible, it became apparent to me that certain words, about one hundred
to be exact, had been used over and over in identically the same way,
often making no sense in or out of context, as one would use a secret
code to hide a meaning that he did not wish exposed to the public. I
tested this again and again and found it to be true. I found that once
these code words were translated a door was opened to a whole new area
The Bible is really an anthology, a collection of choice
literary extracts from different authors, some relating to the
spiritual side of life; some seeming to be written on the mental and
physical. There is something of value for everyone at every
The material contained in the Bible is but a fraction of the original
writings from which it was selected. The Biblical writings are revealed
Truth which was preserved by word of mouth and gradually became written
literature, the work of many spiritually minded authors. Later, groups
of theologians made the selections which we think of as the
Bible, deciding, according to their individual prejudices, what they
judged worthy of keeping, what they would discard. For example, the
Apocrypha, which is incorporated in the Vulgate, is generally omitted
in Protestant versions of the Bible. The discovery of the Dead Sea
Scrolls also gives evidence that much material was omitted from the
Bible as we know it.
Various Bible concordances, encyclopedias, and dictionaries
were used in researching the original meanings of the proper names. The
secret code was revealed to me as a gradual unfoldment during
twenty years of Bible teaching. I am particularly indebted to the Unity
School of Christianity at Lee’s Summit, Missouri, for their
excellent Metaphysical Bible Dictionary.
Great credit goes to my wife, Cornelia, whose enthusiasm and
persistence in pursuing this idea kept us working for the twelve years
that it took to write this book. Without her endless work on
the manuscript, it would not have been accomplished. I am also
indebted to my many students who, year after year, begged for copies of
the material presented in my classes and for a book on the subject,
thus prompting me to put the material down in written form.
I wish to express grateful appreciation to Frances Brown who has been
tireless in typing and retyping this manuscript and to Stella Terrill
Mann whose encouragement, after carefully studying the
manuscript, gave us a new incentive. Others who read the manuscript and
gave helpful suggestions were Cornelia W. Sherman and Suzanne
This book had to be written. The need compelled it. The largest selling
book in the English language is the Bible; and, yet, few people
understand what it has to say. Because of this need, various
translations have altered the original King James Version published in
1611. Some were helpful in certain areas, but mostly they
tended to lose the beautiful mystical feeling underlying the
words of the King James Version. In each generation there have been
those who felt that the language of the Bible was archaic, that it
should be modernized. Modernizing the language helped some to
better understand the Bible in a literal, or historic, way,
but left large areas completely misunderstood, especially those areas
where an understanding of symbols, parables, allegories and such are
The Bible is a compilation of treatises on nearly every facet of
man’s life. Within its covers modern psychology will find all
that it has to teach. It is the ultimate philosophy. It shows us how to
commune with the unseen Power within each one of us. It shows us how to
take dominion in our lives through the use of the Power. It is the
story of every man in his journey through life, his mental and
spiritual growth. The obstacles and problems he meets are presented in
an understandable way.
The mystics of the ages have rather sensed than interpreted the deep
esoteric meanings hidden within certain words of the Bible. Never
before has a usable, workable key been presented. I humbly
offer it here that the Bible may become a more understandable book, not
just a book for the religious but a guidebook for every man. It may
ultimately become man’s greatest possession, the answer book
for every problem that can ever come into his experience.
That which I have to offer began with the discovery that modern-day
readers were completely overlooking the meanings behind
certain proper names of people and places, continually
featured in Biblical writing, meanings that the ancient
writers had taken for granted and assumed would always be understood. I
found that certain numbers and common words had a repetitious use and
that when their symbolic or esoteric meaning was understood, they
opened up entirely new avenues of wisdom and understanding. Herein lies
the key to the hidden mysteries that have been concealed in the Bible
for so many years.
The first five books of the Bible, known as the Torah or Pentateuch,
contain the foundation for the teaching of the entire Book. Once a
basis of understanding is found for these five books, the balance of
the Bible can be understood easily.
I have felt absolutely driven to write this book. For years I had
attempted to come to grips with the Bible. While I gained inspiration
and insight from reading it, it was not until I found the key
to the inner meaning that I began to grasp the wisdom contained there.
I did not attempt to become a student of the Hebrew, Greek, or
Aramaic, because I found that interpretations in Bible concordances, in
Bible indexes, and Bible dictionaries, available to everyone, made this
unnecessary. Once certain key words were understood, I found
them to be used in the same way consistently throughout the books of
the Bible. Thus, the interpretation for one story provided a backlog of
understanding for others.
The Bible is presented on three levels. There is something for
everyone. On the obvious level there is history, rules of conduct, and
beautiful literature; on the mental level there is enough philosophy to
challenge the student forever; but on the spiritual level there is a
whole new world of discovery awaiting the reader. Once the key to the
deeper meaning is understood, one is able to enjoy the Bible without
frustration. The stories of Job and Jehoshaphat interpreted in
this book are found to be great psychological dramas.
I would not disturb anyone’s thinking about the Bible, only
open up new avenues for fresh discovery of the great Truths that lie
therein. The Bible basically is a book of spiritual Truth. The
things of the spirit are discerned by the spirit. There is something
within each one that responds to the inner meaning, even
though he may not know just what it is
We cannot remove the mysteries from the Bible any more than we can
remove the mystery of life. The Bible is the book of
life—your life and my life. It exudes a beauty and vitality
that cannot be explained in mere words. The mystery of the Spirit will
always bring its power into those who are seeking Truth through the
Bible. By understanding the true meaning of the words and
symbols, this power becomes more readily available. The great
Invisible gives us a strength and an understanding beyond our knowing.
Who can ever explain completely the mystery of God under-girding the
life in which we live? The Bible, once the deeper meanings are
understood, even in a measure, shows us how the mystery of God unfolds
in the life and experience of each one of
us. ....J. E. Addington
WHAT THIS BOOK CAN MEAN TO YOU
The Bible is the most important book that has ever been published. It
has had more influence on history and has affected more
people’s lives than any other book. It was not written by one
person but, through divine Inspiration, it is the compilation of the
thoughts and ideas of many whose words were passed down from generation
to generation by mouth and by scroll. It did not receive publication
for hundreds of years after the original words were conceived.
Today we think of the Bible as being a part of the household of the
Christian world. It is printed in many languages and each year more
Bibles are sold than any other book, but few are read in comparison to
the numbers sold. Many people feel that they ought to read it and try,
but they give up because they do not understand it. Many of those who
do read it take it literally, without knowing the inner meaning, and
miss the best part.
How Some Have
Studied the Bible
There are many people who devote their lives to studying the Bible.
Some study it as history. Some try to prove its authenticity from an
archeological viewpoint. Others can tell you just how many times a word
appears in the Bible. Some have found certain passages that seem to
foretell the modern freeways, automobiles, airplanes, and even
space travel. To many, the end of the world is clearly foretold and
modern wars predicted. As Jesus said about the Pharisees of
his day who were also meticulous students, “verily . . . They
have their reward.” Their interest and their
complete absorption in the subject is, in itself, a reward. But there
are richer and greater rewards for those who are willing to seek them.
FREE YOUR MIND AND THE REST WILL FOLLOW
Have you shied away from the Bible, considering it a series of
genealogies, bloodthirsty battles, and “thou shall
nots” for the morally self-righteous? Have you considered
that much of it was too colorful to be read aloud to the children? Do
you have a casual acquaintance with the Psalms and a speaking
acquaintance with the New Testament, but frankly never get around to
reading the rest? Then, I would like to introduce you to the
best guidebook to modern-day living that has ever been written. If you
have thought that the Bible was dull, bewildering, contradictory,
difficult and antiquated, I hope to show you in this book that the
Bible is a storehouse of inspiration designed to fit every human need,
a treasure trove of usable ideas, an infinite source of wisdom; most of
all, a book of life, your life and my life.
PERCEPTION IS EVERYTHING
It is important that we put aside all of our prejudices, our
preconceived notions. Let’s see what some of them are.
Some have thought that since the Bible was written many years ago,
everything that needs to be said about it has already been
said—and should be respected. This prejudice should be set
aside immediately if we wish to gain an understanding of the greatest
of all books. We have just as much right as anyone to dig into the true
meanings in the Bible, letting our own inner Wisdom guide us into right
Another preconceived notion is that the Bible is old-fashioned, having
no application to today’s problems. Anything based
on Truth is forever timely or applicable. Truth was revealed to the
prophets of old just as it is revealed to us today and will always be
revealed to all whose minds are open to receive it. The Bible is the
best self-help textbook that has ever been written and its teaching
applies to us today as if it were written for each one individually.
Another fallacy is that the Bible is contradictory. It is only
contradictory on the exoteric side. To those who go beyond the physical
and even the mental meaning into the hidden or esoteric meaning, there
will be no contradiction. On the contrary, it will all be
drawn together, interrelated as basic Truth always is.
There are those who say it is dull and bewildering. So would we if we
were to read a letter written in a secret code. It would not make very
much sense to us, would it? Once we are given the secret code, the
clues that open to us the hidden meanings in the Bible, it
becomes fascinating, an exciting adventure in self-discovery
Some dispose of the Bible in one fell swoop. It couldn’t have
been written by God, they think, so there’s nothing of Truth
there at all.
The Bible has been written by God, through man. The men who brought us
the inspiration contained in the Bible were men who were willing to let
themselves be used by the Spirit within for this purpose. Thus, there
were many scribes but only one Author—one Author writing
about Himself as Creator, Creative Medium and Creation. As one
understands this, the Bible turns out to be an autobiography, the Life
of God in each one of us.
There are those, brought up in religions not acceptable to their
intelligence, who became completely prejudiced. These people might even
feel guilty about studying the Bible, in the light of discovering new
meaning beyond that given by the parents, lest they somehow damage the
image of the parents.
Let us put aside all of these prejudices. Take the Bible as if it were
completely new to us. Pretend that we have never heard of it before and
start from there.
THE STORY OF EVERY MAN'S LIFE
Actually, the Bible is the story of YOUR LIFE AND MY LIFE. It is the
unfolding of the spiritual life of every man. As one grows in spiritual
perception, he grows into a deeper understanding of the Bible.
Each time he reads it, it contains a new and richer meaning. It is as
if the pages come to life. What was once a gory battle becomes an
allegory, giving the reader an insight into his own spiritual
unfoldment. Jesus said that the enemies are all those of our own
household. They are enemy thoughts of our own mental households which
can be overcome by Truth. The Bible is the story of man’s
journey from Paradise to Paradise. Along the way he meets all of the
temptations and problems of everyday living. To quote from Judge
Troward, a man with a deep understanding of the Bible:
The Bible is the Book of the Emancipation of Man. The emancipation of
man means his deliverance from sorrow and sickness, from poverty,
struggle, and uncertainty, from ignorance and limitation, and finally
from death itself. This may appear to be what the euphuistic
colloquialism of the day would call “a tall order,”
but nevertheless it is impossible to read the Bible with a
mind unwrapped by antecedent conceptions derived from
traditional interpretation without seeing that this is exactly what it
promises, and that it professes to contain the secret whereby this
happy condition of perfect liberty may be attained.
The Bible, which literally means THE BOOK, contains sixty-six books
which tell in allegory, prophecy, epistle, parable and poem,
man’s generation, degeneration and regeneration. Over and
over again, from every conceivable approach, we read of the experience
of each one of us as he seeks to discover the Truth about
himself and his relationship to Life
The first two chapters of Genesis (meaning the beginning) and the last
two chapters of Revelation, the final book, tell of the will of God for
man. In the beginning we find man created in the
“image” and “likeness” of God
and given dominion “. . . over every creeping thing
that creepeth upon the earth.” In Revelation we again have
the vision of that perfection which rightfully belongs to man.
All the rest of the Bible is concerned with the journey of the soul
back to its original awareness of perfection, man as a child of God. It
is the story of the struggle of man who, cheated by the senses into
thinking that satisfaction comes from without, struggles to exert his
will against God, the infinite Goodness and Perfection within him.
Story after story describes man’s voluntary journey into
bondage, the thing that happens to man when he chooses to become
established in a consciousness apart from God. It is the story of the
prodigal son; it is the story of the children of Israel, leaving their
own lands, going down into Egypt into bondage and their great desire to
get back to the promised land. This story is repeated over and over,
like the theme in a symphony, in many different settings and
circumstances so that each one wandering in the wilderness of
unenlightened thought can find himself and his particular problem.
Through it all the Love of God seeks to reconcile man to Himself. God
speaks through the prophets and all those who have ears to hear,
offering to reclaim rebellious man and restore him to the
Kingdom of Heaven, that divine order of perfection, that dominion which
is man’s rightful heritage as a child of God. This is the
regeneration. It is not that man has really ever been lost; it is only
that he has chosen to think of himself as separated from his Maker. It
has seemed easier to him to trust in the evidence of his senses rather
than the Truth of his Being.
MAN'S TRUE IDENTITY
The gift of God has already been given to man—absolute
perfection, dominion over life. Made in the image and likeness
of God, he has all of the attributes of God inherent within
him—infinite Intelligence, omnipotent Power and
omnipresent Love; but, given the power of choice, it is up to
him to accept it for himself.
In the twenty-first chapter of Revelation the true state o£
bliss intended for man is revealed to John. And I saw a new heaven [within] and a new earth [without]: for
the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no
more sea [former consciousness].And I John saw the holy city [awareness of wholeness], new Jerusalem
[inner peace], coming down from God out of heaven [within], prepared as
a bride adorned for her husband
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle
of God is with men [God lives in men], and he will dwell with them, and
they shall be his people [thought], and God himself shall be with them,
and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be
no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any
more pain: for the former things [state of halfness and imperfection]
are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne [the God Self within ‘that
has dominion] said, Behold, I make all things new. . . .—Revelation 21:1–5
Spiritual rebirth makes all things new. Never again will anything seem
the same. Through the dominion of God, the true Self within, man is
given dominion, that dominion which is his birthright.
LIFE TRULY IS ALL ABOUT YOU i.e. THE DIVINE IN YOU
Who do you think is the principal character in this marvelous Book to
end all books; It is God. But how can that be when it is the story of
my life? you ask. It is the story of God in you. The mountain tops, the
wilderness, the Egypt, the flowering in the desert are all in you. To
explain, we must start as the Book of Genesis starts, “In the
beginning God. . . .” God is all there is, the only Cause,
the only Creator, the only Substance, the only Intelligence.
It was all made by God out of God, “. . . and without him was
not any thing made that was made.” So let’s start
where everything starts, with God.
THE SAME YESTERDAY TODAY and TOMORROW
There is an old legend that explains man’s confusion
regarding his divinity. It begins by asserting that mankind
was created according to a divine pattern, a very special creation
unlike any other; upright, endowed with Mind, given to understand and
know the goodness, the perfection of Life and all created things; with
eyes to perceive the good, the true, and the beautiful; with
ears to hear the gorgeous symphony of the planets as they spin in their
orbits, the songs of the birds and the sighing of the wind and the
still small voice of his Maker; with speech to command and sing the
praises of his God; with emotion and rapturous feelings of love and
compassion; endowed with admiration for the marvelous beauty
of the manifest universe and all it contains. The power of right action
and unlimited accomplishments are his. All of these magnificent gifts
were combined and many others were installed in a beautiful
body temple of intricate and perfect design
This masterpiece finished, the old legend goes, it remained to hide the
eternal spark of divine Life. Should God hide the spark of life eternal
in the outermost star of the universe, or in the uttermost depths of
the ocean? And God decided that the place where man would be least
likely to look, until he had grown in Grace to the stage where he could
be trusted, was within the heart of himself. For when he would be wise
enough to look within, he would be ready to receive the
Imminence of God within himself.
What is 'The Christ'
This is the meaning of the prophecy of Isaiah as quoted in Matthew:
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and
they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is,
God with us —Matthew 1:23; see also Isaiah 7:14
This is the Christ, God in us, Spirit individualized in and through
man. In the Old Testament, God in man is called Jehovah God;
in the New
Testament, the Christ.
God and I in space alone
And nobody else in view.
“And where are the people, O Lord?” I said.
“The earth below and the sky o’erhead
And the dead whom once I knew?”
“That was a dream,” God smiled and said,
“A dream that seemed to be true,
There were no people, living or dead,
There was no earth and no sky o’erhead
There was only myself—and you.”
—Ella Wheeler Wilcox
GOD IN YOU IS PERSONAL TO YOU
If God is all in all, over all, and through all, the only Cause, the
only Intelligence and, of necessity, the only Substance, then God at
your point of awareness must be personal to you. Each person, each
country, each battle is a state of consciousness which you
encounter in Mind
You will be hearing more about the nature of God in you, at your point
of awareness, as we go along. You will come to know Him so intimately
that you will at last understand why the personal pronoun is used to
describe the Omnipresence.
At our house we read the Bible, not because it is the pious thing to
do, but because we consider it the most interesting reading we have
ever found. Once one discovers that God in YOU is the principal
character in every one of the Bible stories, once one discovers the key
to the hidden meaning of the Bible, he embarks on a treasure hunt. You
will enjoy this treasure hunt more if you will look up the
references given in your Bible so that we may explore them together.
You will find it is like unscrambling exciting instructions leading to
Once we have found the secret, something happens. All of a sudden the
Bible is not just a series of disjointed writings, but an integrated
study of man’s spiritual journey from Paradise to
Paradise. Man, created perfect in the beginning; seemingly
dispossessed through his own ignorance; now, step by step, finding his
own way back to his original perfection. At last he finds the New
Jerusalem, the possession of Peace, or what we would call the awareness
of Peace. The Bible comes to life when it is discovered that it is the
story of our own individual spiritual growth here and now.
