In 1938, Edgar Cayce was asked to give information that would help to stimulate in individuals’ hearts and minds a great appreciation of the true Spirit of Thanksgiving. In recognition of our sincere thanks for each and every one of you, we offer this excerpt from Cayce’s Thanksgiving message:
In the spirit of thanks, all of us here at Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E., Atlantic University, and the Cayce/Reilly School of Massage appreciate your continued support of this great Work and wish you and your families a blessed Thanksgiving holiday.
… Thanksgiving is thy opportunity to show thy appreciation to thy friend, thy home, thy mother, thy children—yea, most of all to thy God!
... In this land ye may give praise for freedom of speech, for the opportunities to raise thy voice in whatever way and manner ye choose … Then, as ye give thanks, as ye give praise to thy friends for kindnesses, for gentlenesses, for those things that make thy experience more bearable in a cruel world … Let thy heart then be glad.
Keep then that Day in praise, in thanksgiving, in such ways, such a manner that ye show to thy conscience that what ye worship as thy God is aware of thy appreciation of life! (3976-21)
