Lets us put it simply;
Brahman projected the illusion we call manifestation or creation...( it never really happened though).
The energy illusion is made up of many small i am thoughts or egos like the forest is the sum total of the trees.
So the ego cannot destroy itself as it did not make itself so the Universal Self has to do that.As it does not Act a body is needed hence the guru who is the Self and kills the ego in the final instance...
There you are the whole book....T
Gay people are people or egos that have not made the transition from hermaphrodites or don't want to...Cayce says.
Adi Manu aka Adam aka Gaia descended with advanced souls twice to establish and new human homo sapiens...
Hermaphrodites reproduced like an amoeba but sex was a confusion who did what with what to whom etc..
My references are the Bible, Bagavatha Purana, and Edgar Caye ALL CROSS REFERENCED...T
Hence the institution of marriage of unity of the opposites only..T
Caye indicates that the first thought began the separation of the ego from the universal and it built up from there.
He also indicates the ego spent time in subtle material around planets etc...and sometimes goes back to them after being earth for whatever reasons to learn from the vibrations.
Planets are just concentration of material from planes...
So it seems to me that the ego arrives on earth with experience in other dimensions and close to material physical dimensions...So it is well addicted to the lower planes and materiality when it first arrived here on earth...and is full of ignorance to its condition...
The descents and other more advanced egos come from higher planes---7 astral and 7 mental...but mostly astral...T
It is more than likely that the astral sons of most high that developed the homo sapiens had previously been embodied in other hominids and mixtures...As it would take experienced desire to create the bodies we have...by hovering over them and eccerated direction and growth.t
Meditation will not get realisation anymore than deep sleep will...
Because it by passes the ego entity... and leaves it deluded and intact.
The ego thinks I am----the small I --one has to reverse the process and drive thought until the ego itself realises it doesn't exist....at that point the universal absorbs and destroys the individual ego....
Do sadhana on I am...T
