Destiny of the Body Resources
Some Cayce quotes to get you started:
For in the material things, as we shall find as respecting the Destiny of the Body, as a man eateth so is he also – the physical man. As a man thinketh so is he also; destined that that which is the growth of those influences in the experience of the individual for its accomplishing, its fulfilling that purpose for which it came into being. (262-79)
… as related to the Destiny of the Body – it has been indicated in thine outline as to how there are the manifestations of those things in the earth that become the expressions of the movement of the spirit bringing into being that which is matter in its various expressions. (262-81)
(Q) Please explain heredity in relation to the Destiny of the Body. Do we draw to our bodies the same atomic structures used in other bodies?
(A) This is rather confusing in its questioning. There is a compliance with those things, ever, set as immutable laws. LIKE BEGETS LIKE! Heredity, then, is the association of that within the minds, the bodies, the atomical structural forces of a union which hath drawn for its OWN development as well as for that which comes AS an activity of a unison of purpose. (262-82)
As the Body is a portion of the structure in which the manifestations of the individual, as a portion of the Whole, are carried on, it, that body – is then in the keeping of its KEEPER. So what wilt thou do with same?
God hath not ORDAINED that any SOUL should perish! What of thy Body? Hast thou ordained, hast thou so lived, hast thou so made thy Temple that being untenable thou dost not care for its glorifying?
Ye attempt, rightly, to adorn thy Body for thy fellow man. Dost thou care less for thy God than thy fellow man? Dost thou purge the Body, as He hath given, that it may be made whole for thine soul?
What is to come depends upon what thou hast done, what thou wilt do with the opportunity which is, has been and will be THINE for the glorifying of same.
If ye would be like Him, then so live, so conduct thyself, that THY BODY may again and AGAIN be brought into such relationships that it may be raised; a glorified body to be known as thine very own!
That thou mayest have been called, this, that and the other name may make for confusion to many. But when ye say Creative Force, God, Jehovah, Yahweh, Abba, what meanest thou? One and the same thing, carrying through in the various phases of thine own consciousness; or of those who in their activities seek, as thou (if thou seekest aright), to be one with Him yet to KNOW self to BE self, I AM, in and with the GREAT I AM.
The Destiny of the Body, then, lieth with the individual. (262-86)
(Q) Am I correct in feeling that we should develop to the point where we do not have to suffer illness before dying, but should be able to keep a healthy body and just pass out of it when we have finished our work here?
(A) This is an ideal, an idea. Those who apply may attain. Those who have the price to pay, those who must meet in their application of their tenets and truths in self, must still bear their cross. That each entity must and will some day attain to the ability to be conscious of physical death without the physical suffering is true, but the day – to most – is far, too far away. [Miss  died 2/29/56 with Hodgkins’ Disease (cancer of the lymph) after an illness of 20 months.] (993-7)
In the care of self, selflessness is great. But be more mindful of the little niceties about self and you will find a pride in self – not a false pride. But as nature manifested in its Maker, it does the best it can with what it has and looks the most beautiful with what it has to do with. Thy body, too, is indeed the temple of the living God. Keep it beautiful. Be mindful of the care of same, and you – too – will think more of it. So will there be more of the abilities to be conscious of His presence meeting with thee in thy temple; forget it not. (3179-1)
For, man in his nature-physical, mental and spiritual – is a replica, is a part of whole universal reaction in materiality. Hence there are those elements which if applied in a material way, if there is the activity with same of the spirit and mind, may bring into the experience of each atom of the body force or cell itself the awareness of the Creative Force or God. It may only rise as high as the ideal held by the body-mind. (3492-1) nations of the earth today vibrate to those things that they have and are creating in their own land, their own environment? Look to the nations where the span of life has been extended from sixty to eight-four years. You will judge who is serving God. These are judgements. These are the signs
What nations of the earth today vibrate to those things that they have and are creating in their own land, their own environment? Look to the nations where the span of life has been extended from sixty to eight-four years. You will judge who is serving God. These are judgements. These are the signs to those who seek to know, who will study the heavens, who will analyze the elements, who will know the heart of man, they that seek to know the will of the Father for themselves answer "Lord, here am I, use me, send me where I am needed." (3976-29) to those who seek to know, who will study the heavens, who will analyze the elements, who will know the heart of man, they that seek to know the will of the Father for themselves answer "Lord, here am I, use me, send me where I am needed." (3976-29)
What one thinks continually, they become; what one cherishes in their heart and mind they make a part of the pulsation of their heart, through their own blood cells, and build in their own physical, that which its spirit and soul must feed upon, and that with which it will be possessed, when it passes into the realm for which the other experiences of what it has gained here in the physical plane, must be used.
