Deeper meaning of ‘Lord’s Prayer’

The “Lord’s Prayer” (also known as the “Our Father”), is the most often recited prayer by Christians all over the world because it was taught and commanded by Jesus Christ himself in Matthew (6:9-14).
This is the “Lord’s Prayer” that is taught in all Catholic schools in the Philippines:

“Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name,
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.”

For most of my adult life, I never thought of questioning this prayer, and accepted the explanation or interpretation of the priests; they, after all, were supposed to be the living representatives of Jesus on Earth.

It was only later that I began to think of the possible other meanings of the words in the “Lord’s Prayer.” Since Jesus almost always talked in mysterious ways, which he himself admitted, is it possible there could be a secret and deeper meaning to this prayer?

Jesus himself said that to his closest disciples, he gave the secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven. But to the multitude, he spoke a different language (in parables) because many “have ears, but do not listen, and have eyes, but do not see; neither do they understand.”

Since this is the case, it is not only possible, but a certainty that Jesus meant something deeper when he taught us this special prayer.

I found the answer when I read Edgar Cayce’s interpretation and explanation of the “Lord’s Prayer.” It is not really only what it says literally: “To give us our daily bread, and to forgive our enemies.”

The “Lord’s Prayer,” according to Cayce, is really a sacred formula given to us by Jesus Christ to connect us to our higher spiritual and divine self. Each word or phrase refers to man’s psychic or spiritual centers.

But who was Edgar Cayce? He was an American psychic and prophet, who lived from 1877 to 1945. He was a Christian Sunday school preacher who read the complete Bible once a year, over and over again.

Cayce was not highly educated. He finished only the equivalent of a sixth grade in school. He was a very simple man. But then, he acquired the ability to go into self-induced trance, and while in a trance, he could discourse intelligently and accurately on any subject under the sun — from medical diagnosis and cure, ancient civilizations (like Lemuria and Atlantis), past lives of individuals, and unlimited fields of knowledge.

Where his knowledge of such things came from, he explained, was from the Akashic Record (or Book of Life), and the person’s own subconscious mind. Investigations done on him showed he was sincere, honest, and not performing deceit or fraud. He did not ask any payment for his services, and entertained anybody who wanted to ask a question about any topic under the sun.
