The River of Life

In the Edgar Cayce readings, his wife,  Gertrude Cayce noted an experience she had while conducting a reading for her husband, Edgar on 12/30/37.

"During the first part of the reading [1504-1], which was a wonderful explanation of conditions, I was thinking that the questions the individual had sent in were all being answered.

"I just seemed to be somewhere up high (unaware of being a person, just a 'consciousness'), looking down on a most beautiful broad river, composed of bubbles; flowing - it seemed so smoothly and rhythmically, almost musically flowing; yet all the bubbles in a rush rolling by, around and over one another.

"Then I realized that the bubbles were PEOPLE; they finally reached a place where they burst and all seemed to be one, or go together.

"I thought, 'It is the River of Life!'"

"At this point I realized that I must pay attention to the reading, though I was hearing every word being said at the same time.

"It was a wonderful feeling."

This passage reminded me of the biography of Edgar Cayce, There is a River, a best seller in the 1940's. The book's title is from Psalm 46. "There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High."

Gertrude's conscious experience is a precious reminder of the Oneness of God, the oneness of our relationship with each other and all Life.
