Dialogue on Awakening "It is only when you accept that which you call a personality that you develop the fear that your personality lacks something, and in the lacking, you need to shield yourself from the recognition of those around you." [Dialogue on Awakening, page 108]
Cayce "Personality is that which ye wish others to think and see. Individuality is the which your soul prays for, hopes for, desires. These (two) need not necessarily be one; but their purpose must be one, even as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are one. So must body, mind and soul be one in purpose and in aim." [Cayce (5246)]
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth "The Law of 'Cause and Effect', 'Reaping and Sowing' is the visible effect of what you call 'electromagnetism', and no one who has any knowledge of science would expect 'God' to set aside the laws of electromagnetism, which are those of 'activity-bonding-rejection'. 'Activity-Bonding-Rejection' or 'Movement-Attraction-Repulsion' are the fundamental IMPULSES of EXISTENCE and of HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS itself, which have brought about your visible forms in life, and are the only 'instruments' or 'tools' of creation. They are responsible for the formation of substance or 'matter' and also for the development of individualised forms and finally of personality itself in all living entities." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 3, page 1]
"I asked the Creator - 'Universal Consciousness' - why mankind endured so much suffering and evil. I was then shown very clearly that all the problems experienced by humans arose from the 'central point' of the self, (science now calls this the 'ego'). It manifested itself in the 'personality' as a DRIVING NEED to defend the self from criticism or emotional/physical attack and a similar DRIVING NEED to push aside other people, in order to arrive first in the race of life. It also manifested itself in the 'personality' as a DRIVING NEED to take all that was best for the self, despite the opposition of others and a similar DRIVING NEED to hold on to personal possessions, be they relatives, friends, material goods or achievements, despite any opposition. I was also made to understand that without these TWO fundamental, eternal, undeviating 'impulses of creative being' there would be no creation.
"By working together as a team, separately but inseparable, in the visible world, these twin impulses were the means by which the substance of 'matter' itself has been created out of the sublime 'UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS'.
One impulse of creativity is: the 'I'ness of ACTIVITY. This impulse of activity is universal and stems from only one source. 'Activity' is a movement in CONSCIOUSNESS, and CONSCIOUSNESS in movement. The other creative impulse possesses (figuratively speaking) two faces looking in opposite directions. They are:
These are the ONLY means by which earthly existence has been achieved.
The entire universe is a manifestation of the 'Creative Power' active within these Twin Impulses of PHYSICAL BEING - creating 'matter' and individual form. This is one of the fundamental 'secrets' of the universe.
I saw that the 'core' of the 'Personality' or 'ego' as it is now called, had been created 'GUARDIAN of PERSONALITY' and was irresistibly imprinted with the magnetic impulse to ensure PRIVACY and SURVIVAL. For the protection of the individual 'I'ness This was accomplished by using the two faces of the second Impulse of Being
