Greetings on this wonderful day of Resurrection –
..... as we find ourselves in the throes of time yet also beyond time in the eternal NOW.... ever beyond the limitations of this transient plane.... walking amongst those ever caught up in the webs of their own makings... ever gratefully free by the hand of God.... we are most fortunate of men to have been delivered by our devotion and love.... by our search and sacrifice for Truth....
we have faced the death of self and rose to the life of the Divine
Awareness.... now where do we go? we go just where we are....
we remain just who we are..... open ever to the moving hand of the universal consciousness which guides and directs our paths..... resting in THAT ever present Divine Love.... the Bliss which unfolds when we let go of all our limited desires.....
Christ manifests each day beyond the mind of limitations.....
the words and the mind of Christ come when we are the stillness.....
Oh blessed life....
oh blessed death wear is your sting?
in death is resurrection and ALL dies to be reborn within this transient
plane..... people - ideations - ideals - plans etc....
all go through the cycles of birth - growth - maturity - death and
re-birth.... again and again.....
ever progressing forward.....
we are fortunate to be able to share that ever present truth with those that
divine providence puts within our path.....
it matters not whether i speak in terms of Advaita....
or in terms of the Christian Mystic....
it matters not whether i speak in the pregnant void of the Buddhist....
Truth remains truth....
crossing all mans boundaries....
all mans divisionary dogmatic undertakings....
We move as God directs...
ever in joyous union with THAT Divine Being beyond individualized
personality of mans illusions......
It is sad to see Christ limited to a religious persuasion....
stuffed into a neat little package of do's and don'ts....
a religious icon and pushed into a dogmatic corner.
To go from being the rebellious son (of mankind) that spoke out
against the church persuasions and dogmas of man with the
pure Truth of liberation for mankind.... to now be so
mis-understood.... to be pushed into the very corner that he
spoke out so vehemently against... This is a sad state of
affairs.... so may we my dear heart walk as a testimony to the
liberation found within...... the kingdom of heaven prevails.....
may we move in that kingdom on earth.... as it IS ........
Love and Blessings on this Easter morning.......
Since it is Easter morning it is a good time to take a quick look
at Christ and his message. What did he speak ?
1. Love - to love one another
if one is truly coming from the heart there will be no law
against him. love binds wounds it doesn't create them.
love is not mocking , arrogant, nor unkind. love gives of
itself without thought of reward.
if i speak with the tongue of angels and have not love i am
as a sounding brass. so a good indicator is does it come
from compassion and grace or not.
2. It is here now. he didn't speak of a far off heaven, he said
heaven is at hand. heaven and hell are states of mind.
not places in the universe although like minds will
congregate together on the other side which indeed would
translate to a heaven or hell or purgatory.
3. there is no death. he came to say and show that death is
4. if you want to get out of suffering then go and sin no more.
sin was an activity of body and mind if you want out of the
mire then don't chase it. he said basically go and sin no
more in other words drop it and walk away.
5. he hung out with the suffering why? he said the well have
no need of a physician.
why? the ones who are ill are usually
the ones ready to seek those that think they already have it
hear nothing but remain caught in their desires and pain.
not willing to give up anything they gather then cling to the
gathering. it creates a want for more and the cycle is
endless. always trying to fill a hole only creates a deeper
hole. Self Enquiry can show the fallacy of the hole until only
a Whole remains.
6. he showed a life of living truth and ethics with compassion.
7. he said if you have seen me you have seen the father that
in other words i am the embodiment of that
perfection. love, compassion, honesty, ethics , but make
no mistake his words were not always honeyed although
honest they were not brutal but on occasions could cut right
to the core and heart of it just as it was.
8. let the dead bury the dead . what was that about ?
those that are caught in their life will hear nothing - it is
useless basically he said don't go back to a useless
situation of being caught you come with me.
there is a way out but only if you have ears to hear and
eyes to see .
his message was that of liberation Now not in some far off
time. it was of love and surrender . it was of life, truth,
compassion. he said what i am you are. what i have done you
can do. anyone can come to God directly as there is no
separation this was clear with also the statement of i and the
father are ONE. Self Realization is this One.
Death leads to resurrection. it cannot be reborn from matter to
spirit unless it first dies. in other words completed man would
be born of water and spirit . Self Realization is to be done while
in the flesh . Death comes and rebirth to liberation and One
remains. Whole not hole.
Blessed Easter to All.
These are simply basics and not word for word but simply to get
an overall feel. it is simply to refresh the feeling of the message
he was attempting to share - it is just as valid today as then.
