The Man Who Revealed the Secrets of Edgar Cayce

edgar cayce book


A. Robert Smith has been a military officer in WWII. After the many years since the war, Smith has been an award-winning journalist, an editorial writer, and a Washington correspondent covering Congress and interviewing seven presidents. He is the author of ten books including the novel Ben Franklin’s Secret Love; No Soul Left Behind; and God Gave Me a Mulligan. A key life changing moment for him was his 1980 meeting with Hugh Lynn Cayce, the son of Edgar Cayce and founder of the Edgar Cayce Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.). Hugh Lynn asked A. Robert to write his biography. Jessie Stern, who had written bestselling biography about Edgar Cayce, The Sleeping Prophet, had suggested Smith for the job. Hugh Lynn and A. Robert set up a weekly meeting so that the biography could be extrapolated from interviews.

Hugh Lynne told Gladys Davis Turner, who had been Edgar Cayce’s secretary, to give A. Robert access to anything she had stowed in her bank-sized vault. That vault was so big that you could disappear inside of it while rummaging through her stacks of priceless documents. Nobody had before this been allowed to set foot in this treasure house.

In the interviews, Hugh Lynn told A. Robert about how his father saved him from blindness, being in the Battle of the Bulge Army service under General Patton, and the ups and downs of creating the A.R.E. It took five years for A. Robert to complete the book. It was titled, About My Father’s Business. Sadly, Hugh Lynn died before he could read it. The process of finishing the book involved A. Robert deeply with A.R.E. He eventually became the founding Editor of their long running magazine Venture Inward.

During the research process, A. Robert came across a marvelous find. Plowing around in Gladys’ vault he discovered a manuscript that looked like it had been dictated. He asked Gladys about it, and she said:

“Mr. Cayce started to tell the story of his life, and I just typed it up as he progressed.”
“Did he finish it?” Smith asked.
“No. He was too busy giving readings.”

Too bad he didn’t complete it, A. Robert thought, but he was obviously too focused on helping other people to tell his story. Later A. Robert discovered another startling manuscript—a detailed narrative about Edgar’s childhood, by Edgar Cayce’s father, Leslie B. Cayce. A. Robert made copies of both narratives and stowed them away until he could figure out what to do with them.

He eventually found a way to combine Edgar’s life story with Edgar’s father’s account. Combining the two versions made for a very complete and revealing story of Edgar Cayce’s. People were at last able to better understand what lead up to Edgar Cayce becoming the most famous psychic of the 20th century.

The book was originally published by A.R.E. Press in 1997, and titled, The Lost Memoirs of Edgar Cayce. It was an instant success among members and sold about 20,000 copies.

A. Robert very much liked Edgar’s take on life because he was frank and honest about his feelings, even about when his first love, a girl named Bess, spurned him after her father told her that Edgar was a bit crazy. Sprinkled freely through his memoir are confessions of doubts, of uncertainty, of yearning to be “normal” rather than blessed with an astonishing talent. His admissions mark him as a truly humble man who never let adulation undermine his motive of service to others. He remained the living fulfillment of his own saying, “If we ever get to heaven, it will be by leaning on the arm of someone we have helped.”

Among those who read Edgar Cayce’s memoirs was a literary agent, Sandra Martin. She told A. Robert that she could sell it to a major New York publishing house, and did so with St. Martin’s Press. They paid an enormous sum and published a hardback edition in 1997 under a different title, My Life As a Seer. Their hardback was sold internationally, and was followed by a paperback edition. Those editions sold about 40,000 copies, and the paperback is still in print. Now St. Martin’s is publishing a digital edition (e-book) of My Life as a Seer: The Lost Memoirs of Edgar Cayce for readers who prefer an Amazon Kindle or the Barnes & Noble Nook.

At the age of 91, after recovering from a massive stroke, A. Robert has come out with his tenth book: Robert’s 101 Rules of Order for a GOOD LIFE. He got the inspiration to write the book at a Quaker meeting when a women stood up and said. “God is Love.” When he meditated on this he realized that he really saw God as just that – Love Energy and forgiveness. This led him to decide to distill his very full life’s experience so others could live the good life. His involvement in the life and teachings of Edgar Cayce was surely an important part of those life experiences.

Vamos a ver, Jose: Lo de la luna cóncava no hay que pensar mucho ni ser un científico para saber que tiene más inclinación que una luna tradicional (en el C6), por lo que las gotas de agua salen más rápidamente. Imgínate por un momento Alvaro que en estos momentos de crisis en España te pasees con un Mercedes último modelo de 50.000 euros por algún lugar de la España. Ayer hice viaje a Madrid desde Burgos y a la vuelta tuve la oportunidad de tropezarme con un C6 color plata.
