"This is the meaning, this should be the understanding to all:
Those that seek, are Israel. 'Think not to call thyselves the promise in Abraham. Know ye not that the Lord is able to raise up children of Abraham from the very stones? ' So Abraham means call; so Israel means those who seek. How obtained the supplanter [Jacob] the name Israel? He wrestled with the angel, and he was face to face with seeking to know His way. So it is with us that are called and seek His face--We are Israel!"
Edgar Cayce, (#262-28; also, #5377-1)
The New Age, as I have come to understand it, brings enlightment for those who seek sincerely, from the heart and the soul. If the knowledge gained in this period is used for unselfish ends, mankind can experience great spiritual enlightment.
