Children of Light, Children of God
(Q) What is meant by the children of light . . . ?
(A) "They that choose to be guided by His will and do not, through themselves, attempt to manifest self rather than the will of the Father. In the beginning was the word, and the word was God. He said, Let there be light - and there was light. Like begets like. It is both cause and effect, and they that choose some other way become the children of darkness; and they are these: envying, strife, hate; and the children of these are sedition, rebellion, and the like. The children of light first love, for "Though I may have the gift of prophecy, though I may speak in unknown tongues, though I give my body to be burned and have not the spirit of the Son of man, the Christ Consciousness, the Christ Spirit, I am nothing." For, the children of light know Him; He calleth each by name." [Cayce (262-46)]
"But the will is of self, else ye would not indeed be the child of the Creative and Living Force or God that ye are; but as an automaton. Then exercise thyself, and bring that to pass in thy experience that will create for thee the environ of helpful hopefulness in the experience day by day." [Cayce (1538-1)]
