AN INTERPRETATION OF EDGAR CAYCE’S CHRISTMAS STORY

by Jim Dixon

Confirming that the chronicle of the "first Christmas" surrounding Jesus’ birth, his family and their experiences, is indeed factual as cited in the four gospels of the Bible — Matthew, Mark, Luke and John — the Edgar Cayce readings proceed to give a wonderfully provocative and detailed account of those remarkable events that took place some 2000 years ago.

Stating that "...time never was when there was not a Christ and not a Christ mass...", reading 262-103 challenges the reader to understand that knowledge of a thing or a condition, and the wisdom presented in that happening, can be entirely different things. What we hear we may "believe", but we will rarely act as if we believed unless we experience, personally, the birth of the Christ — God entering into flesh — within our own consciousness. And such experience is possible for each of us!

Hear how it is stated in the reading:

"Know this had no beginning in the 1900 years ago, but again and Again and AGAIN! And it may be today, He may be born into thy consciousness; not as a physical birth — [though] each moment that a physical birth is experienced in the earth is an opportunity for the Christ-entrance again!

"Then what are ye doing about it in thy daily life, thy daily conversation? For not by might nor in power, but in the still small voice that speaks within, ye may know as He hath given so oft — ‘Peace, it is I! Be not afraid, it is I’, thy Savior, thy Christ; yea, thyself meeting that BABE in thine own inner self that may grow even as He to be a channel of blessings to others!

"For as ye do it unto others ye do it unto Him."

Ever emphasizing our God-given free will, Edgar Cayce tells us over and over throughout the readings that what we do with our lives, our time and our energies is reflective of where our inner attention lies. The consciousness in which we dwell internally is a product of choices we have made all along the way — throughout time! — and of the intentions that motivate our every action. Subsequent lifetimes are determined by the preferences — mentally, physically, spiritually — that impel our every experience. Desirably, we are building ever higher awareness of God and God’s purposes in our lives, though that is not necessarily so. It is hoped, the readings tell us, that each of us will reach the place where we not only have free choice of the patterns we incarnate into, but also that those patterns will express the Christ in all that we do.

"For as He chose to enter, so ye have entered. As He chose to live, so may ye live. As He chose to give of Himself that there might be a greater understanding, a greater knowledge; yea, the showing forth of the wisdom of God that God IS love, poured forth upon the children of men in this experience.

"And as these changes come and as ye make known that as has been the raising of that consciousness of His Presence in THINE experience, by thy dealings with, by thy conversations with, by thy life with thy fellow man, so may ye hasten the day when HE, CHRIST, may come into thine own heart, unto his OWN peoples, to reign; yes, in the hearts and lives!" (262-103)

Then, indeed, we will understand the Christmas story and its true meaning for us individually and collectively.

"As ye approach the Season that to every student of Christian thought means so much, may ye know what the birth of the Christ-Child in Jesus has meant and that it does mean more and more in the thought and activity of the world as a whole. And ye may judge within yourselves as to whether the world is growing better or not, according to that conviction, that feeling within thine own self; according to the manifestation of the Christ-mass or Christmas spirit in thy daily life and thy associations with thy fellow men.

"For unless this fact is a personal experience, then to you, as an individual, it is not being accomplished.

"But you can feel the peace within, as it comes from meditating upon the desire to be what the Father-God would have thee be through the promises in the Christ-Jesus when thy life, thy associations with thy fellow human beings are made more and more in keeping with the Christmas spirit; which is the manifestation of the commandment He gave, ‘A new commandment give I unto you, that ye love one another, even as I have loved you.’ …

"Let that love, that beauty, which was the message to the shepherds, be thine today: ‘Unto thee is born, yea, unto thee — each one — if offered a knowledge, an understanding of the life of the Christ that will renew thy life, thy purpose — if ye will but sing that new song, ‘Love One Another’." (262-116)

Those who are willing to shape their lives in this direction learn an entirely fresh perspective on the meaning of life in the earth, with specific tools for dealing with all that comes up in a life experience:

"Keep that awareness of His presence. For, as He hath given, ‘Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.’ And though there may be abroad hate, avarice, selfishness and those things that make men afraid, be still within thine own heart, thine own consciousness, and KNOW that He is with thee.

"Then, as ye give so do ye receive. As He hath given, the love of the Father to the children of men is manifested in that spirit of Christmas — Christ-mass — that which may now be raised to that consciousness, that level above man’s way of thought, man’s concept of force, power or might; and that the real strength, the real hope, the real contribution is in that still small voice within." (281-59)

May you have that inner experience of the still small voice and know the Peace that passes understanding. THAT is the meaning, and THAT is the promise, of the Christmas story!

God bless you!
