"Study to know thyself in relationship to that ye choose as the ideal" (2869-1)
Edgar Cayce Said
. . . ye are part and parcel of a universal consciousness or God--and thus of all that is within the universal consciousness, or the universal awareness; as the stars, the planets, the sun, the moon. Do ye rule them or they rule thee? They were made for thy own use, as an individual--yea, that is the part, the thought thy Maker, thy Father-God thinks of thee. For ye are as a corpuscle in the body of God; thus a co-creator with Him, in what ye think, in what ye do. And ye change each soul ye contact, literally or mentally--insofar as ye, as an individual entity, are a witness for or against the Lord, thy God . . . no soul may come in contact with the entity without being changed, either in body, in mind or in purpose. And purpose is, of course, of the soul.
