Happy Easter!

“During the Crucifixion, one of the Roman soldiers ran a spike through J’s (Jesus) wrist. He didn’t feel or show any pain. The soldier was indignant. He screamed at J and demanded, “Why don’t you feel any pain?” J looked at him calmly and said, “If you have no guilt in your mind, you cannot suffer.” The soldier became outraged at his inability to inflict pain on J, and stuck a spear in his side. It didn’t do the soldier any good, or have any effect on J.

At one point, with J nailed to the cross and with blood flowing down, he gazed lovingly over at his wife, Mary Magdalene, and she looked at him. As their eyes connected, a gentle smile came on both of their faces. They knew he had overcome death. He wasn’t a body in his mind. What he was couldn’t be killed by the world. It couldn’t even be hurt by the world! The spirit that he really was, which is no different than God, would go on forever. She was experiencing the same thing as J, and there was nothing anyone in the world could do to alter the truth that was within them.

That’s the message of the Crucifixion, or as J put it later in the Course, “Teach only love, for that is what you are. If you interpret the crucifixion in any other way, you are using it as a weapon for assault rather than as the call for peace for which it was intended.” (Love Has Forgotten No One: The Answer to Life, by Gary Renard)

Happy Easter Beloveds!  It is so important to actually understand what this day really celebrates.  Our level of expansion is reflected in our degree of understanding of this human experience.  Jesus is a story whose purpose is to free us from our misconceptions of “reality”.  Several of his teachings come to mind now – one is; be in this world – not of it.  Which actually means the only way to be free of it is to move through it.   Love your life and the ride is much more pleasant.  To hate it, get upset, or be angry is literally being mad (pun intended)!  It is resistance and as we know, what you resist, persists.  A confusion that often arises is that you must like all of your experiences and this is simply not true.  The fact is you will not like many of your experiences.  They are still good experiences.  The reason is up to you of course.  My opinion is we have experiences we don’t like because we need balance and it also expands the mind.  The deeper in illusion you are the more unpleasant experiences there are to be had.  Let go and allow yourself to rise up like a balloon rising up through consciousness!

On this day of Resurrection keep the above quote in mind and forgive your thoughts of dying!  Life is eternal!  No one ever dies, although the dream would have you thinking of it all the time.  Know that you have a body, but that you are not that body.  Nor are you the mind which thinks you are the body.  Be not attached to this world, but at the same time Love It!  Love every aspect and when the time has come we will be released from this dream to experience Eternity once again.
