An Edgar Casē Study / Attunement
Email | Print

  1. Attunement
Often call to mind the proverb: The eye is not sated with seeing, nor is the ear filled with hearing.1 Study therefore to wean your heart from the love of visible things, and to attend rather to things invisible. For the man who indulges his sensual nature, sullies his conscience and loses the grace of God.2

    1. 'Pray without ceasing'3

38. How, you ask then, may the entity so attune self?

39. By looking on the beauty of a sunset, of a rose, of a lily, or any of those things in nature, and - by the very nature of the mood that these create in self - arouse or bring forth those melodies upon the instruments of the day; the piano, the organ, the reed or even the stringed instruments; to express the nature of these as they express themselves in their unfoldment.

40. And gradually may the entity so enter into the accord with same as to in self ATTUNE self to that unfoldment, that beauty, that nature to which it adapts itself for the healing forces necessary for man's awakening to his relationships to the Creative Forces. (949-12)

    1. 'it is in self that it becomes out of attune'

9. For if you will read the Book of Revelation with the idea of the body as the interpretation, you will understand yourself and learn to really analyze, psychoanalyze, mentally analyze others. But you will have to learn to apply it in self first. For the motivating force in each one of those patterns represented, is that which the individual entity entertains as the ideal. This is the motivating spirit, the motivating purpose. When it is out of attune, or not coordinating with the First Cause, there may not be the greater unfoldment. For, it is in self that it becomes out of attune. It loses its power or ability. It loses creative energy or its hold upon the First Cause that is the Creator or God. (4083-1)


13. That ye think, that ye put your Mind to work upon, to live upon, to feed upon, to live with, to abide with, to associate with in the mind, THAT your soul-body becomes! That is the law. That is the Destiny. That IS as from the beginning, that each thought of the Creator bore within itself its OWN fruit as from the beginning.

14. How does matter, how does the seed of the oak or of the grass or of the flower or of the tree or of the animal or of the man, find within itself that which impels, propagates the specie? the activative force that moves on in its realm of activity in whatsoever sphere it may find itself, giving expressions of that first thought of the Creative Forces? That is its Destiny, which the easterners say was set in the first. But, as ye see, this is only half a truth. For if the Mind dwells upon the spiritual things, then it follows that it becomes what it has dwelt upon, what it has lived upon, what it has made itself a portion of. But if the Mind dwells upon self-indulgence, self-aggrandizement, self-exaltation, selfishness in any of its forms, in any of its variations, then it has set itself at variance to that First Cause; and we have that entered in as from the beginning, that of making the will through the Mind - at variance to Creative Forces before it has come into matter, into the movements in matter that we know as physical, material, as those things that are of the earth-earthy. (262-78)


5. Then, in entering, each soul comes to manifest that it has NOT so well learned in the lessons of hope, patience, tolerance, brotherly love, kindness, gentleness, meekness, and such. These are the fruits of the spirit. And the manifestation of these attributes in the experience of each soul brings, as the Master of Masters has given, that awareness of self of the soul that is the gift of the Creator, that is the birthright of every individual that may be wasted in attempting to gratify those things that are of the earth, or of the carnal forces, and thus become weakened and less aware of its experience or existence in the affairs of man. Yet the soul finds its experience, no matter in what environ; and the ENVIRON is that created by what the soul - the inner self - has done, does do, about the manifestations of Creative Influences in the relationships to its fellow man. (505-4)


16. (Q) [379]: How may I raise my vibrations so as to contact the Christ?
(A) Making the will, the desire of the heart, one with His, believing in faith, in patience, all becomes possible in Him, through Him to the Father; for He gave it as it is. Believest thou?

Then, "according to thy faith be it done in thee". (5749-4)


22. (Q) Any other advice for the body at this time?
(A) Keep hold on that seeking for the Christ-Consciousness. For this will come, if there will be the consistent and persistent "Thy will be done, 0 Lord, in me; and help me to serve where and when I am needed most." (69-6)

Many are the items of knowledge which are of little or no good for the soul.
And he is very unwise who sets his mind on any other things than those which serve his salvation.4


  1. Ecclesiastes 1:8
8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

  1. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
16 Rejoice evermore.
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
