An Edgar Cayce
Reading for Easter
The following reading (5749-13) was given March 12, 1941 at the Cayce’s home on Arctic Crescent in Virginia Beach at the request of the Glad Helpers Prayer Group.
As the conductor, Gertrude Cayce opened the reading, “You will have before you the desire of those present here to secure at this time an Easter message which may be an inspiration and a help to those to whom it is presented. You will consider the intention of those present to pass this discourse on to others, and give that which will be most helpful now.”
Edgar Cayce’s answer is just as appropriate now as it was during that trying time in 1941.
“In man's experience in the earth there comes those periods of doubt and fear, and of the loss of hope. Then to all such there should be the reminding of that Easter Morn; and as to what it has meant and does mean in the hearts and minds of those who have and do put their trust in Jesus, the Christ.
“There should be the reminding that - though He bowed under the burden of the Cross, though His blood was shed, though He entered into the tomb - through that power, that ability, that love as manifested in Himself among His fellow men He broke the bonds of death; proclaiming in that act that THERE IS NO DEATH when the individual, the soul, has and does put its trust in Him.
“ Thus in this hour of despair throughout the world, when those activities are such as to indicate hate, injustice, tyranny, desire to enslave or to impel others to submit to the dictates of this or that power, - let all take heart and know that this, too, as the hour upon Calvary, must pass away; and that as upon the wings of the morning there comes that new hope, that new desire, to the hearts and minds of all who seek to know His face.
“This must begin within thine own heart.”
He reminds them to meditate often and asks all to examine their hearts and minds and to replace fear, hate, jealousy and doubt with the desire to help, hope, and give to those in need. By doing this, with body, mind and spirit they be the Easter message, and create hope in the hearts, minds and lives of others.
