Father’s House — Many Mansions!
He has become a high priest forever in the order of Melchizedek. Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers. You believe in God; believe in Me as well. If it were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? Treasury of Scripture In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. Hebrews , For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God… Hebrews For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

Through case studies, each chapter expounds on how certain traits from previous lives will impact the life you're living. Now, my reason for abandoning this book: It was simply asking too much of me. The book is built on a foundation of beliefs and assumptions that I simply do not and probably can not believe, and therefore as I read page after page I could assign very little validity to the arguments the author was making.
A short list of offenses: reincarnation, the lost city of Atlantis, karma, mentalism. Would I like to believe in these things? Eh, maybe. Sometimes I feel like karma is playing out in the lives around me, but I do not feel like karma - or any of these beliefs - are as scientifically quantifiable as the author professes them to be. Does this make me closed minded and unwilling to open myself up to new beliefs? I hope not, but the argument could be made. I'm sure this opens me up to criticism of my own religion and beliefs The book still gets a couple of stars from me in the rating.
Primarily because it is a well-written book. The author is no dummy So, she gets credit for the work put forth to reach her conclusions. Jan 19, Chris rated it it was amazing. A really amazing book. I am one to be subject to the more hocus pocusy sorts of things, but this book takes a very open mindedly scientific approach. Many of the more unexplainable, or seemingly inconsistent, things in my life have finally been set to order for me and has now put me on my way to seeking out testing this new theory on spirituality presented in the book.
I get sort of annoyed with myself while explaining this because continually referring back to "that book" feels cultish to me, h A really amazing book. I get sort of annoyed with myself while explaining this because continually referring back to "that book" feels cultish to me, hence the hope to get beyond using that as reference. Either way, if you're looking for something that will make sense to get at spiritual questions that have been nagging you, I would highly recommend giving this book a shot.

I can actually see myself reading as I walked down the street in San Francisco where I was working as a legal secretary, completely absorbed in the book and paying no attention to the visceral world around me.
I had a profound influence on my thinking and understanding of spirituality. I think it may be time to read it again Aug 12, Michael rated it really liked it. As the consummate skeptic, I still have a hard time with reincarnation. No question, it answers so many questions and fills in the blanks of so many inequities and theodicies so visible in life. If your cosmology is in a state of flux, try this on for size. It certainly isn't the whole story, but it helps. Jan 05, Asha Mohun rated it liked it. An interesting book with Edgar Cayce's an American fortune teller lived during 19th century case studies on reincarnation, lost city of Atlantis and many more.
Jan 31, Adele rated it really liked it. Anything about Edgar Cayce is good for the soul. I liked this book in particular because it is about reincarnation and how it fits into Christianity.
Feb 25, Daniel Rickenbach rated it it was ok. Too metaphysical for my liking Since I never met Edgar Cayce personally I cannot judge his character. It seems that he had a heart for and a genuine interest in doing much good in life and was able to help many people.
Many Mansions: The Edgar Cayce Story on Reincarnation
I think that we cannot expect all people in all times to be helped in the same way. Maybe this was a work for a specific time in human evolution. Mystery is intriguing. I did find myself wondering how the seekers really ended up feeling about the Too metaphysical for my liking I did find myself wondering how the seekers really ended up feeling about their over all experiences. It's one thing to be given hope, but another thing to actually experience real, postitive change in one's life. It concerns me that previous lives, which I tried and still try to have an open mind to are used in more than strictly metaphoric purposes.
It is hard for me to accept that today I'm struggling through an issue because of some previous, pre-existing issue that needs solving from a lifetime that I'm burdened with today. I choose to be born into this current life seems to be a very subjective idea. Maybe some find this analogy helpful, but to me it makes me feel stranded I think all humans have a unique opportunity, at least in their individual existing lives to create the kind of person they'd like to be or they'd like to become I also wonder if life is about learning to explore, discover, and embrace our unique human freedom to be who we are.
I'd like to know that life has purpose, but wonder at the safety of such certainty of "I have a purpose. I'm not sure I see freedom of personal self-actualization emerging in Cayce's Reincarnation views. I have at least a working knowledge, at least through the eyes of Gina Cerminara of Cayce's work and the good that he did. I find that his concepts of the hypnotic state are intriguing, though I don't know if any of these subjective experiences might be useful from a scientific research point. At a minimum his work and views do resonate with some segments of the population, and if they find themselves helped then I cannot criticize too harshly.
Mar 03, Saiisha rated it really liked it Shelves: self-help , spiritual , reviewed. This was a well-researched, well-written book about Edgar Cayce's beliefs about karma and reincarnation, cases of healings through past life prognoses, and fantastic prophesies as a clairvoyant. Gina Cerminara does him great credit by taking the reader on a journey starting with Edgar's original beliefs as a Christian, but having to slowly change and acknowledge his new beliefs as he discovers his gifts as a medical clairvoyant. There are probably several hundred cases and examples discussed in This was a well-researched, well-written book about Edgar Cayce's beliefs about karma and reincarnation, cases of healings through past life prognoses, and fantastic prophesies as a clairvoyant.
There are probably several hundred cases and examples discussed in several chapters about karma, reincarnation, mentalism, etc. These are topics that I'm very familiar with in my own background as well as my work as a soulistic life coach www. The author's personal conjecture that Indians use the karma theory as an excuse for being "passive, lethargic and fatalistic. As thoroughly researched, cataloged and described as the cases are, I felt that the language was dry and detached.
I recommend the book to anyone who's interested in learning more about Edgar Cayce, and a deeper dive into past lives, karma and reincarnation.

I knew that Edgar Cayce was considered one of the best psychics of his time, but what I learned by reading this book is that he also gave people readings about past lives. Cayce, himself, was raised a Christian, so it took him quite a while before he believed in reincarnation. It read more like a text book at times, but it was very interesting. It seemed as though every time I came up with a question about the subject, within the next chapter or so, my question would be addressed and answered.

You are free to explore the immediate vicinity of your new home and to familiarize yourself with the program which lies immediately ahead. You also have time to gratify your desire to consult the registry and call upon your loved ones and other earth friends who may have preceded you to these worlds.
At the end of your ten-day period of leisure you begin the second step in the Paradise journey, for the mansion worlds are actual training spheres, not merely detention planets. Between the time of planetary death or translation and resurrection on the mansion world, mortal man gains absolutely nothing aside from experiencing the fact of survival.
You begin over there right where you leave off down here. Survivors arriving on this first of the detention spheres present so many and such varied defects of creature character and deficiencies of mortal experience that the major activities of the realm are occupied with the correction and cure of these manifold legacies of the life in the flesh on the material evolutionary worlds of time and space.
Spiritually, of course, the mansion world students are far in advance of such a state of mere human development.
These companions are the offspring of the local universe Mother Spirit, and there are several million of them on the morontia worlds of Satania. Aside from those assigned as group companions, you will have much to do with the interpreters and translators, the building custodians, and the excursion supervisors. And all of these companions are most co-operative with those who have to do with developing your personality factors of mind and spirit within the morontia body. These beautiful and versatile beings are companionable associates and charming guides.
They are free to accompany individuals or selected groups to any of the transition-culture spheres, including their satellite worlds. They are the excursion guides and leisure associates of all ascending mortals. They often accompany survivor groups on periodic visits to Jerusem, and on any day you are there, you can go to the registry sector of the system capital and meet ascending mortals from all seven of the mansion worlds since they freely journey back and forth between their residential abodes and the system headquarters. The groupings of the morontia life begin to take form; working groups and social organizations start to function, communities take on formal proportions, and the advancing mortals inaugurate new social orders and governmental arrangements.
While the various orders of celestial life differ, they are all friendly and fraternal. In all the worlds of ascension you will find nothing comparable to human intolerance and the discriminations of inconsiderate caste systems. As you go forward, you will recognize more and more of the Jerusem features added to the mansion worlds.
The sea of glass makes its appearance on the second mansonia. You go to sleep with the seraphic transport and awake with the new but undeveloped body in the resurrection halls, much as when you first arrived on mansion world number one except that the Thought Adjuster does not leave you during these transit sleeps between the mansion worlds. Your personality remains intact after you once pass from the evolutionary worlds to the initial mansion world.
Those mental associations that were purely animalistic and wholly material naturally perished with the physical brain, but everything in your mental life which was worth while, and which had survival value, was counterparted by the Adjuster and is retained as a part of personal memory all the way through the ascendant career. You will be conscious of all your worth-while experiences as you advance from one mansion world to another and from one section of the universe to another—even to Paradise. You partake of the morontia order of food, a kingdom of living energy unknown on the material worlds.
Both food and water are fully utilized in the morontia body; there is no residual waste.
Pause to consider: Mansonia number one is a very material sphere, presenting the early beginnings of the morontia regime. You are still a near human and not far removed from the limited viewpoints of mortal life, but each world discloses definite progress. From sphere to sphere you grow less material, more intellectual, and slightly more spiritual.
The spiritual progress is greatest on the last three of these seven progressive worlds.
From the Life of Joseph Smith
There defects in planetary experiences pertaining to sex life, family association, and parental function were either corrected or were projected for future rectification among the Material Son families on Jerusem. The effort to master the significance of morontia mota, begun on the first mansion world, is here more earnestly continued. The development on mansonia number two compares with the intellectual status of the post-Magisterial Son culture of the ideal evolutionary worlds.
Though they function on all seven of the mansion spheres, they maintain their group headquarters at the center of the school circles of world number three. There are millions of these instructors on the mansion and higher morontia worlds. These advanced and glorified cherubim serve as morontia teachers all the way up from the mansion worlds to the last sphere of local universe ascendant training. They will be among the last to bid you an affectionate adieu when the farewell time draws near, the time when you bid good-bye—at least for a few ages—to the universe of your origin, when you enseraphim for transit to the receiving worlds of the minor sector of the superuniverse.
Father's House — Many Mansions! - Seedbed
When you arrive on mansonia number two, you receive permission periodically to visit transition world number two, where are located the morontia supervisor headquarters for all Satania and the training schools for the various morontia orders. When you reach mansion world number three, you are immediately granted a permit to visit the third transition sphere, the headquarters of the angelic orders and the home of their various system training schools. Visits to Jerusem from this world are increasingly profitable and are of ever-heightening interest to the advancing mortals.
On this sphere more positive educational work is begun. The training of the first two mansion worlds is mostly of a deficiency nature—negative—in that it has to do with supplementing the experience of the life in the flesh. On this third mansion world the survivors really begin their progressive morontia culture. The chief purpose of this training is to enhance the understanding of the correlation of morontia mota and mortal logic, the co-ordination of morontia mota and human philosophy. Surviving mortals now gain practical insight into true metaphysics. This is the real introduction to the intelligent comprehension of cosmic meanings and universe interrelationships.
The culture of the third mansion world partakes of the nature of the postbestowal Son age of a normal inhabited planet.
