In 1936, Edgar Cayce was asked to give a reading which would provide individuals with a deeper understanding of Christmas. As we extend to each and every one of you our sincere wish for a beautiful Holiday, we offer this excerpt from Cayce’s Christmas message:
For time never was when there was not a Christ and not a Christ mass …
Such we find as that happening in Bethlehem of Judea ages and years ago … the songs of the angels, or that music of the spheres that sang, “PEACE ON EARTH - GOOD WILL TO MEN!”
For this, then, is in EVERY birth - the possibilities, the glories, the actuating of that influence of that entrance again of god-man into the earth that man might know the way.
Thus this comes at this time to bring to the hearts and minds of those of that Glad period the fact that not only 1900 years ago but TODAY, He may be born into thine own consciousness, thine own understanding; He comes unto His own!
… For He is thy Elder Brother, He IS the babe in thy heart, in thy life; to be then even now - as then - nourished in the heart, in body, in mind. And indeed do His words become more and more then of meaning, “As ye do it unto the least of these, thy brethren, ye do it unto me!”
… May the Peace, the Joy of His Consciousness, His Presence, His Joy be thine this day; yea, all thy days in the earth! For He is nigh unto thee, He is in thy midst! (262-103)
