Easter Sunday is a glorious time to celebrate the promise of the resurrection. Jesus became the Christ through His dedicated realization that the Father and He were one. His was an example that he told us was attainable by all. It doesn’t come without intention and dedicated persistence in seeing with the eyes of love, forgiveness, denial, surrender and unity with all.
When we see with the eyes of love, we hold no one prisoner. We judge with right judgment and not by appearances. From this vantage we see into the soul and depth of individuals to know at their heart of hearts they are pure and divine. Knowing this truth, it is easy to let forgiveness for any seeming wrong doing easily and gently spring forth, for as Jesus said, “They know not what they do.”
As we move through this world of form, we will be tempted to place our values and goals on the ever present mammon. But man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that precedes from the mouth of God. Therefore, we are to deny the temptations set before us and rely on the Word of God for our every substance.
As we continually create the habit of surrendering our will to God’s will, we will live in the Kingdom here and now. God’s will is always for our highest and best. As we let go of the lesser human form, we attain and achieve the infinite where all things are possible.
Say with me: “Today I joyfully release the shackles of the cross to live from my higher resurrected power and presence. I am grateful to know the kingdom of God is within me and everywhere present. I now am free to reveal the loving beauty that flows through and as me.”
