What did Edgar Cayce mean when he said, ‘There is no time’?
Time, as we know it on this planet, is only as relevant as it is to how our planet spins to create the illusion of “one day”. If you are 30 years old in “Earth years” and were to live your entire life on Mars, whose average “day” is about 28-29 hours, your Mars age would be 24 years old. If you are 80 in Earth years, your Mars age would be 66. Time can only be relevant to the planet where one resides.
In John Van Auken’s book, Toward a Deeper Meditation, Cayce was quoted as saying, “Learn these lessons well: First, the continuity of life. There is no time; it is one time. There is no space; it is one space. There is no force, other than all force in its various phases and applications. The individual is such a part of God that one’s thoughts may become crimes or miracles, for thoughts are deeds. That that one metes must be met again. That one applies will be applied again and again until that oneness of time, space, force are learned and the individual is one with the whole.”
The premise of time places limitations on our thought constructs as many people will live their entire lives believing that time, as we know it, is the only time that ever was or will be.
We live in a world that relies on linear time based on years, months, days, hours and seconds. What we fail to conceptualize is how time is manmade. Loverboy has a song, “Working for the Weekend” whose title encapsulates the ultimate reason why we rely on time, as it’s all based on economic reasons through the creation of days, months, years and subsequently, the work week and the weekend.
What if every day was “Saturday“? What if there were no days at all? If we exist in parallel universes, then we must be considered multidimensional beings. Is it possible that, in any given parallel universe, there is no time?
In Cayce’s reading, 900-429, he stated, :
“The first lesson for six months should be One-One-One-One; Oneness of God, oneness of man’s relation, oneness of force, oneness of time, oneness of purpose, Oneness in every effort-Oneness- Oneness!”
Those who meditate will eventually feel the oneness that Cayce mentions. Fears are what bring us back to living in chaos within this 3rd dimensional reality. Every time you buy into what the talking heads on the nightly news are saying or watch a horror movie, you are reinforcing those fears and are basically telling the Universe, “This is what I enjoy.” One of the Universal Laws is the Law of Attraction, so whatever is predominantly on your mind is what you (and we, as a group collective) will receive.
“worry will only unfit and prevent the body from meting out the best in self and for others, and in this respect will must manifest and not be pulled … about by circumstance, as it were.”
There is a reason why our 6 o’clock news is full of fear; to keep us from manifesting a new reality while reinforcing fear. It also keeps us locked into the principle of time.
Upon researching the tomb of Mayan leader, Lord Pacal, the late Jose Arguelles stated that the most important lesson he learned was that we are to either live without time or to develop a calendar that is more in synchronicity with nature, such as a 13 month lunar calendar, where each month has one full moon, has the same number of days, starts on the same day and ends on the same day.
On your days off, try living without time. Don’t wear a watch and don’t follow any specific time-based schedule.
Here is the video link from the article:
As evidenced by numerous near death experiences, time does not exist in the afterlife.
Even when you dream, you never know what day it is or what time it is. When we dream, we come the closest to experiencing our true, spiritual nature where we live without time as multidimensional beings. Once you learn how to release the fear (see How To Deprogram Yourself), you will find that your dreams become more futuristic because you no longer buy into manmade laws and beliefs while you begin to connect to the Universal Mind, or as Cayce calls it, “Oneness”.
Another Universal Law is the Law of Free Will, which keeps us locked into this 3rd dimensional reality as long as we continue to buy into what our world leaders and the mainstream media continue to sell us. Can you name one world leader who truly works in the best interests of humanity? Can you name one major television station that does not try to sell us fear? This reality can change in the blink of an eye once we, as a group collective, stop buying into the fear and start buying into Universal Consciousness.
Through Universal Consciousness, you can see and feel how everything is connected to everything else. With this type of mentality and existence,. there would be no wars and no fear.
Modern studies repeatedly suggest that a significant proportion of people in the Western world now believe in reincarnation. Although this phenomenon can be traced back to various esoteric movements that flourished from the second half of the 19th century, it gained significant ground with the explosion of popular interest in Eastern spiritual approaches in the 60s. And it was reinforced by a proliferation of therapists offering to regress people into their past lives.
Yet now the tide seems to be turning again. For some years the emphasis has been moving more towards the idea that we are all part of the One, the All, the Source, the Absolute, the Ultimate, the Great Spirit or whatever we choose to call the ‘universal consciousness’. Of course this is not a new idea. But what is changing is that especially more intellectually minded spiritual seekers are tending towards the view that anything outside of the ‘One’ is mere ‘illusion’.
In fact this word illusion is used a great deal in spiritual circles these days, although actually in quite different contexts, and it is perhaps worth considering what these are. Of course readers would all agree that the physical world itself is to some extent an illusion, at least inasmuch as it is underpinned by the nonphysical planes and states of being that science is increasingly pointing towards. But what about the idea that we only reincarnate for as long as we fail to see through the ‘illusion’, and that as soon as we gain ‘enlightenment’ we can ‘break the bonds of karma’ and ‘reunite with the Source’? More radical still, what about the idea that any notion of individuality is completely illusory on all levels, and that as soon as we die there is no sense of continuation of any sort of individual soul consciousness?
Whether or not they make it explicitly clear, these latter two are the ‘illusion models’ supported by a significant proportion of our best-known spiritual commentators of modern times – be they proponents of, for example, the ‘power of now’, or of ‘cosmic ordering’, or of ‘quantum mysticism’. Yet to see the world in this way is entirely at odds with what we might call the ‘experience model’, which holds that we lead many lives in order to see all sides of every emotional coin, and to learn to deal with the manifest challenges that life on this planet provides. In other words, a model in which the emphasis is on an individual soul growing by experience over many lifetimes.
If we are to adopt a rational approach then, rather than relying on ‘revealed wisdom’ ancient or modern, it is surely sensible to consider which of these models is best supported by logical analysis and the available evidence.
We can start with the premise that there must exist some sort of ultimate force or energy that underlies the entire universe, both seen and unseen, which is the Origin or Source of everything in it. However ineffable it may be, this principle of a universal consciousness is almost a logical necessity, and it is certainly supported by scientific research at both the quantum and the macrocosmic level. The idea that ‘we are all one’ is also a common element of transcendental experiences, whether spontaneous, meditative or induced by hallucinogens. So our next step must be to investigate whether, at the same time, there is any real evidence to support the idea of an individual consciousness that exists or survives independent of the physical body.
The most relevant area of research here is near-death experiences. In particular we are interested in cases that involve subjects returning with factual information that is subsequently verified, and yet so obscure that they could not reasonably have acquired it in any ‘normal’ way.
Near-Death Experience & Reincarnation Cases
One of the most fascinating cases on record took place in the early 70s, and involves a gifted young Russian scientist called George Rodonaia. His work on chemical brain transmitters was sufficiently valued by the KGB that they were not prepared to lose his expertise to the US by letting him take up an invite to further his research at Yale. On the day of his departure, as he stood on the pavement in Tbilisi waiting for a taxi to the airport, he was deliberately mown down by a car and pronounced dead at the scene. His body lay in a morgue for three days, but as the autopsy began his eyelids flickered and he was rushed to surgery.
As a man of science George had never had any time for religion. So those close to him were bewildered when, three days into his lengthy recovery, he began to describe what had happened while he was ‘dead’. In fact his was a relatively non-typical and highly transcendental experience, but for our current purposes he also claimed he had also been able to travel anywhere he liked while ‘out of body’. In particular he was drawn to a newborn baby in the hospital adjoining the morgue because she would not stop crying, and doctors had been unable to diagnose the problem. Much to his surprise he found that he was able to communicate with her telepathically, and also to scan her body and establish that her hip had been broken, probably at birth. Incredibly, as soon as George was well enough to pass on this information, the doctors x-rayed the baby and found that she did indeed have a fractured hip.
There are other, similar cases of near-death experiences involving obscure, factual information that combine to strongly suggest that our individual awareness or consciousness does indeed continue to exist even when the physical brain is absolutely non-functional. So far so good. But is there any evidence to support the further idea that individual souls have many lives?
Here we encounter two important areas of research, the first involving children who have spontaneous memories of past lives. Although historically most of these cases have come from Asia, one of the finest involves a young American boy called James Leininger of Lafayette, Louisiana. Born in 1998, his fascination with toy planes from the earliest age took a more sinister turn as he approached his second birthday, when vivid nightmares began. He would thrash around in his sleep, kicking out with his legs up in the air and moaning: “Airplane crash, on fire, little man can’t get out.” His mother Andrea had no particular religious convictions but, when her mother suggested these might be memories of a past life, she began to encourage little James to talk about them. And he began to reveal startling details, such as that the pilot of the plane was also called James; that he had been shot down by the Japanese; that he had flown Corsairs; and that one of his fellow pilots went by the name of Jack Larsen. He also mysteriously mentioned the single word Natoma.
His father Bruce remained dubious about any sort of spiritual explanation, but he knew that neither he nor any other member of their family had any particular interest in aircraft or the war. So he began to research, and quickly established that an aircraft carrier called the USS Natoma Bay had been stationed in the Pacific during World War II and had taken part in the notorious battle for the Japanese island of Iwo Jima early in 1945. He ordered a book about this, and was flicking through it one day when James pointed to the island of Chichi Jima on a map and exclaimed, “Daddy, that is where my plane was shot down.” He then made contact with the ‘Natoma Bay Association’, who confirmed that Jack Larsen had been one of the pilots, and also that only one pilot had been lost at Chichi Jima: 21-year-old Lt James M. Huston Jr.
Bruce also knew that Huston had flown Wildcats, not Corsairs, on the Natoma Bay. But when he made contact with Huston’s elderly sister she kindly sent him some photos – including one of her brother standing proudly next to a Corsair. Military records then showed he had originally been part of an elite special squadron who test-flew these planes. But the real clincher involves three ‘GI Joe’ dolls. When Bruce asked his son why he called them Leon, Walter and Billie he replied, “Because they greeted me when I went to heaven.” Again military records confirmed that three of Huston’s fellow Natoma Bay pilots were Lt Leon S. Conner, Ensign Walter J. Devlin and Ensign Billie R. Peeler – and that all three had diedbefore Huston on other engagements. None of this detailed information is available on the internet pages about the Natoma Bay even now, let alone in popular books and so on.
Past Lives & Hypnotic Regression
The second area of past-life research is hypnotic regression. With this we must first appreciate that the human brain appears to store a complete record of everything we have ever been exposed to, no matter how briefly or how long ago, and that although most of these memories remain inaccessible to our normal consciousness they can be accessed in trance. So apparently authentic and detailed past lives, even including strong emotions and strange accents and so on, have sometimes been proved to come from perfectly normal sources – not least historical fiction, which is often overlooked by spiritual researchers. Nevertheless, there remain some cases involving information so obscure that only a paranormal explanation seems appropriate.
One of the finest involves a young woman dubbed Jane Evans, who was one of many subjects regressed by the Welsh hypnotherapist Arnall Bloxham. She first visited him in the late 60s and proved a responsive subject who, over the course of a number of sessions, regressed into six separate lives from Roman times onwards. She would go on to be the star of a 1976 documentary made by the initially sceptical BBC producer Jeffrey Iverson, entitled ‘The Bloxham Tapes’. Her most celebrated past life was that of a persecuted Jewess in 12th century York, but on close investigation this case is somewhat inconclusive. In fact her strongest life in terms of obscure evidence involved Alison, a young servant to the 15th century French financier and merchant, Jacques Coeur.
Some of the historical information Jane came up with in trance was relatively obscure, and could only be verified by professional French historians. For example, she said that Charles VII’s nickname was “heron legs”; that his son Louis had poisoned his wife; that his mistress Agnes Sorel had two pet dogs clothed in “coats of white fur with jewelled collars”; and that Coeur was Jewish and his father was a goldsmith. Perhaps more impressive was her knowledge that Coeur was an avid collector of art, with paintings by Jean “Fouquet,” the court painter to the king and one of Coeur’s debtors; by Jan “van Eyck,” the court painter to the nearby Duke of Burgundy; by “Giotto,” an Italian master from the previous century; and by the little-known “John of Bruges” who, Iverson established only with great difficulty, was also known as John Bondolf and was a Flemish court painter for the king’s grandfather. More impressive again was her report that Coeur had a “body servant” called Abdul, who was “dressed differently from the others” – because it was only from obscure French court records of the time that Iverson was able to confirm that he did indeed have an Egyptian body slave.
Impressive enough, yet the clincher in this case is Jane’s recall of a “beautiful golden apple with jewels in it” that she said had been given to Coeur by the Sultan of Turkey. All of Iverson’s initial attempts to verify the existence of such a piece drew a blank until his last night in Coeur’s home town of Bourges, when he returned to his hotel to find a message from a local historian. The latter reported that he had been searching through contemporary archives when he found “an obscure list of items confiscated by the Treasury from Jacques Coeur”; and in that list was a “grenade” of gold – a pomegranate. Of course this is so like an apple in shape and size that the English word contains the French root pomme. It is also worth noting that one sceptic’s supposed attempt to trace all these details to a historical novel is a complete travesty, because the novel has an entirely different plot and contains virtually none of these obscure details.
Again there are other, similar cases of both childhood recall and regression that involve equally obscure yet verifiable information about past lives. But could all these merely result from subjects tapping into some sort of universal memory, or even from possession by the deceased? Probably the strongest evidence that these are indeed memories from the subjects’ own, individual, past lives comes from subjects also being regressed into the time between lives, or ‘interlife’.
This stems from the research of a number of pioneering psychologists and psychiatrists around the world, who each stumbled on the interlife independently in the 70s and 80s. Their subjects’ reports are extremely consistent, so that the experience can be broken into five main elements: transition and healing, past-life review, soul group interaction, next-life planning and returning. This evidence from what now constitute thousands of subjects from diverse backgrounds suggests strongly that there is a continuity of individual soul identity across many lives.
The Holographic Soul
So how do we properly bring this evidence of individual soul survival and reincarnation together with the idea of a universal consciousness that underlies everything? Although the most profound spiritual sources have hinted at the truth throughout the ages, the most simple yet elegant solution has only become available to us in recent decades with the discovery of the hologram. And it involves applying this principle not to the brain, nor to memory, nor even to the universe as a whole, but instead to soul consciousness itself:
Soul consciousness is holographic. We are both individual aspects of the Source, and full holographic representations of it, all at the same time. However this does not mean that soul individuality is in itself an illusion. The principle of the hologram is that the part contains the whole, and yet is clearly distinguishable from it.
The other message that comes through loud and clear from interlife research, as well as from the most profound spiritual sources, is that free will and personal responsibility reign supreme. This is what allows us to learn from our mistakes, and to grow as souls. So any next-life previews seen between lives merely represent major probabilities and lesser possibilities, and there is no karmic punishment or predestiny. Indeed the idea of karma itself has arguably outlived its usefulness, because it is clear that the dynamics of how our attitudes, intentions and experiences feed into the futures we create for ourselves, both across and within lives, are far too complex to be reduced to simplistic ‘laws’.
In conclusion it appears that there are no ‘flaws in the grand plan’. The physical world is not an abomination created by fallen angels. Nor is the reincarnation cycle something to be escaped from at all costs, either by suddenly gaining the enlightenment to see through the illusion, or by learning to give up all ‘attachment’ so as to generate no more karma. Although we would do well to aim for a degree of emotional detachment and balance, and regular meditation is absolutely invaluable in trying to bring our ‘higher selves’ to the fore, life is to be lived and experienced!
So where does it all end? Interlife evidence, again backed by the most profound spiritual sources, suggests that we continue to reincarnate until we have exhausted all the possibilities for growth in the physical plane. And this is only the ‘end of the beginning’ of the soul’s journey, because there are many other opportunities for new experiences in other realms. As for the idea of ‘reuniting with the Source’, the concept of the Holographic Soul suggests that we never split off from It in the first place, and that It is always within us and us within It.
What about the million dollar question from which ‘illusionists’ tend to shy away? What is the whole point of the universe in the first place, and how do we humans fit into the ‘big picture’?
The Source’s primary aim, in diversifying into all the billions of holographic soul aspects of itself that operate in the various realms throughout the universe, is to experience all that is and can be. So as individualised aspects of the Source who have chosen to reincarnate on this planet, we are merely fulfilling a small part of that objective by gaining a balance of all the experiences available via this route.
James Leininger’s amazing story is documented in the book Soul Survivor: The Reincarnation of a World War II Fighter Pilot.

Late last night or early this morning, three new portals to the interstellar areas opened up. They sent out bursts of energy that ar coming into our solar ayatem at this time. The energies that they portend are new energies, while at the same time begin very old. They radiate out from the very center of the Universal Constant, that which the Universe truly is, its very essential nature, and they have passed through our energy flux vortex twice in the past. This is the third passage of these vibrations, and being a third they bring with them a completion that has not been felt before.
In the historic periods of your early Earth, when these energies first traversed this system, they brought with them bursts of light and invention. In those energies there were times of great seeding and flourishings on the earth. Then some of the energetic sustenance that they carried moved away, and actually some of it was taken away by those from other areas who felt that your development here needed to be gradual and controlled and not instantaneous and of increasing and never ending creativity. This new burst brings with it a new kind of connection to the Universe, to the Mind of The Universe. Moreover it is driven and intentional. It falls within the great time of things. There is a propriety and rightness of when things happen, and in that proper timing what is meant to be happen will be. It cannot be changed. This is not a kind of determinism, for there are may layers and levels on which this is working out, rather it is a choosing of where one wishes to be actualized. It comes about through a choice of connection.
This connection allows people to know and understand their place in the greater whole and their part of Universal Consciousness. As such, the illusion of the physical is revealed to be what it is, illusion and not truly real. The sense that this is more of a game, and we use the word somewhat guardedly, for we do not wish to use in in the sense of winning and losing, but more in the sense of this being a kind of experimentation, one that you have chosen to play out. It allows one to see through the activities of daily life to the greater schemata behind the whole thing. Is it not Beautiful and wondrous?
This Earth is a most marvelous plave. It is one of the best places within the galaxy to view the wonder of All That Is. There is a potential that is now becoming real on your Earth, and it is time to seize that potential;. Three new portals are now opened for those who are sincere and desirous of seeing their place as part and one with Universal Consciousness, of becoming actualized in their very WHO, of moving on within the Ascension process. As Jacob with his ladder, these portals are gates to the new knowledge and potential of each and every person. The challenge is there. It is important to be aware that with this new energy now streaming in from the opened portals, things can become more chaotic as individuals do a push and pull dance within its vibration.
There are so many who have become stuck in the illusion of this dimension, of this earthly plane, and it will be ever more difficult for them to accept what is streaming forth from these new portals. More and more dimensions will become obvious to those who are alert, and it is time to know that what you are seeing is what you are seeing. As you are energized and as these portals continue to pour forth their energies, your very senses will begin to respond to more and more dimensions. You can feel yourselves with odd physical blips and charges. These are your ordinary senses expanding and opening up to the expansion of the energy field around you. Where once the ground was firm, it is now both firm and soft at the same time. This can cause some confusion and dis-orientation at first, but know that with time, you will begin to recognize when your senses are responding to the opening of the dimensions, and with time, you will learn to enjoy, expect, and even desire this new connectivity piece.
Be well, and know that in all cases you have the power, the wisdom, and the ability to open and be part of the changes that are happening. It is time for meditation, for seeing through the little concerns, and for you to know your power. You can create and do create. It is the intention, choice, and connection that you are needing to keep you centered and at one in all things., We are here and we hear you. Call on us and we will answer.
Transmission terminated at this time. Lines always open.
