The story of Easter is not about White Rabbits and Chocolate eggs as much as it is about Life Resurrected and Death Transformed, a universal script where everything is subject to a cycle of death and dying. If you were in a space ship and saw the world for the first time you may assume that there is no shortage of life and you’d be right. So why the cycle we may wonder?
We should not through out the baby with the bath water when it comes to the resurrection of The Christ who is at the very least a God-man symbol for all things material and spiritual. The biblical message of ‘if One being gets it all right, we all do’ is hard for us to understand. Perhaps it also sounds to easy to accept, especially for the false self within us. So we denounce and obliterate this redemptiveness with overthinking. To me its simple math, a subject I abhorred as a school goer. Today however I think I am better at math. One plus one may equal everything. Why not?
If you look past Jew, Christian or the Muslim storylines today you may contemplatively see that this billion year old (at least) Universal Christ has always been moving the world (which includes everybody) beyond the physical, beyond death and beyond our innate woundedness. It also moves us beyond religion and formal structure towards an understanding that everything belongs. It moves us towards Life Resurrected and Death Transformed which the ego and false self is unable to see at first.
We are all light moving towards a future resurrection of the driving force of everything which is love, light and life. What we crucify God transforms.
I encourage you to go back on the final chapter of the Jesus Christ story for a moment as one of those wanting to kill this King yourself. After all, who does He think He is! Who do you think He is, right? Then, be still, get quiet and try and find love there. That love that still drives us all forward is also within each of us, much like a bright Jewel is hidden within the Lotus flower.
Find a message and maybe even a path and a way to the truth and the light. We are still headed there, towards this light. So the Easter message for everyone and everything is still the same. Death simply means separation and there is no separation in the Universe. There are only thoughts of separation. That’s the great con-story of the metaphorical snake that has left us feeling lost, wounded and east of Eden.
A Course in Miracles puts it this way, “All aspects of fear are untrue because they do not exist at the creative level, and therefore do not exist at all. To whatever extent you are willing to submit your beliefs to this test, to that extent are your perceptions corrected. In sorting out the false from the true, the miracle proceeds along these lines:
Perfect love casts out fear.
If fear exists, then there is not perfect love.
Only perfect love exists.
If there is fear,
It produces a state that does not exist. Believe this and you will be free. 10 Only God can establish this solution, and this faith is His gift.
Yogastha Kuru Karmani and Benedizioni to the One and the all. May we recognise, know and come to appreciate Life Resurrected and Death Transformed.
