"It isn't the great things... It is just being kind, just being gentle, just being patient...."
- Edgar Cayce 416-7
Edgar Cayce stated that the ways of man are via power whereas the ways of God are via the "Fruits of the Spirit". These are consistent with the biblical 'Meek inheriting the Earth' idiom and with the eastern 'Seva' concept. They are:
Brotherly Love Compassion Fellowship Friendship Gentleness Hope Joy Kindness Long-suffering Love Nobleness Obedience Patience Peace Self-sacrifice Tolerance Truth
In addition to these Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Self-control, and Temperance are also mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23
Hope/Certainty, Joy, Love, and Peace are also among the energising, oh-so-desirable, and sought-after Positive Emotions.
To know the Spiritual Incentives for this behaviour see: The Gifts of the Spirit
and the Universal Laws that back them up.
