The very purpose of our life is happiness, which is sustained by hope. We have no guarantee about the future, but we exist in the hope of something better. Hope means keeping going, thinking, ‘I can do this.’ It brings inner strength, self-confidence, the ability to do what you do honestly, truthfully and transparently. ~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Keep the mental attitude in the constructive forces that make for knowing that the body is not only good but good for something. And apply self in those ways and manners that are known to the mental body, and we will find the physical forces, the mental reaction, continually helpful. EdgarCayce reading 906-2

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light. - Albert Schweitzer.

TEXT OF READING 5749-13 This Psychic Reading given by Edgar Cayce at his home on Arctic Crescent, Virginia Beach, Va., this 12th day of March, 1941, in accordance with request made by the Glad Helpers Prayer Group of the Ass''n for Research & Enlightenment, Inc. P R E S E N T Edgar Cayce; Gertrude Cayce, Conductor; Gladys Davis, Steno. Leona and Chas. W. Rosborough, Helen Godfrey, Frances Y. Morrow, Sallie Jones, Florence Edmonds, Gladys Harding, Jessie Cox, Esther Wynne, Ruth LeNoir, Ruth Denney, Margaret Wilkins, Mae Verhoeven, Hannah Miller and Hugh Lynn Cayce. R E A D I N G Time of Reading 3:15 to 3:35 P. M. Eastern Standard Time. 1. GC: 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. 2. EC: 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 thehearts and minds of those who have and do put their trust in Jesus, the Christ. 3. 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. 4. 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. 5. This must begin within thine own heart. 6. Then, let all so examine their hearts and minds as to put away doubt and fear; putting away hate and malice, jealousy and those things that cause man to err. Replace these with the desire to help, with hope, with the willingness to divide self and self's surroundings with those who are less fortunate; putting on the whole armor of God - in righteousness. 7. Magnify in the daily life the fruit of the spirit of truth, that all may take hold and make for that activity in their lives; knowing that as ye do it unto the least of thy brethren ye do it to thy Maker. 8. Meditate oft upon what it has meant, does mean today, to CRUCIFY the Lord thy God in thy daily experiences. Rather magnify, glorify Him in every word, every activity, in all thy dealings with thy fellow man. By thy very step, by thy very look, by thy word, create HOPE in the hearts, minds and lives of others. 9. Make it SURE in thy OWN heart, for there - to thee - is the beginning and the end. For He is mindful of thee, and He has promised that whosoever will may come and take of the cup that He partook of; that through Him we may be SURE in OUR hopes, OUR responses to the needs of the world at this sad changing hour. 10. Let that mind ever be in thee as was in Him as He offered Himself up: "Father, forgive them - they know not what they do. Father, it is finished - I come to thee. Give Thou thy servant that glory which Thou hast promised." 11. Live that in thy life, thy conversation, thy activity everywhere; and indeed then may each in that manner bear a real Easter message to others. 12. For He hath entrusted to thee - those that love Him - the redemption of the world, to make known His willingness, His care, His promises that may be the activity of each and every soul. 13. Then, let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God - believe in Him, who has promised that "If ye will love me and keep my commandments, I will come and abide with thee - for, Lo, I am with thee always." 14. His commandments are not grievous; just being kind, just being patient, just being longsuffering with thy problems, thy turmoils, thy strifes. 15. Through that ability to make Himself one with the Father, He has gained that right, that honor to declare Himself unto as many as will harken. 16. Let thy light, then, shine ever in the dark, in the light; in the sorrow, in the gladness of thy purpose, of thy desire; that He may be glorified even as He asks of the Father. 17. Ye - each of ye, as individuals - may do this. So ye, as ye come into His presence, may be given "Well done, thou good and faithful brother - enter into the joy of thy Lord."

A poor man asked the Buddha, “Why am I so poor?” The Buddha said, “you do not learn to give.” So the poor man said, “If I’m not having anything?” Buddha said: “You have a few things, The Face, which can give a smile; Mouth: you can praise or comfort others; The Heart: it can open up to others; Eyes: who can look the other with the eyes of goodness; Body: which can be used to help others.” So, actually we are not poor at all, poverty of spirit is the real poverty.

Life – changing experience In 1997 at the age of 24, my world as I knew it changed. I had been a relatively healthy individual up until that autumn. I had gained my Bachelor of Science degree in Applied and Human Biology and was working as a pharmaceutical rep as well as studying for a postgraduate diploma in law, with view to realising my dream of being a barrister. Almost overnight my symptoms appeared, my fingers would become blue and white in the cold, as well as I had an inexplicable tidal wave of tiredness engulfing me, along with my body literally turning to stone and always cold. I was given the diagnosis of Systemic Sclerosis (Scleroderma) a chronic non-curable autoimmune condition and Raynaud’s syndrome. Along with a 15 month life expectancy and a cocktail of immuno-toxic drugs. And most devastating to me….. advised to give up on my dream. I changed medical professionals and spent the next 7 years with my head in law books whilst taking the disease modifying toxic medication, and working as a practising barrister, loving my job – living my dream. After stopping all cytotoxic drugs, I was unable to continue with the physical demands of my job and so I returned to my home town of Southport to be nearer my family and the sea. I feel truly blessed to be under the care of such an amazing medical team, who are astounded with my progress, which encourages me even more to rewrite the medical prognosis for this diagnosis.

"Take no offense. That which offends you only weakens you. Being offended creates the same destructive energy that offended you in the first place - so transcend your ego and stay in peace." Dr Wayne Dyer
