I will not forget the processions I attended as a young girl, carrying a statue of the Virgin Mary with my school friends, and singing in church choir to celebrate this momentous occasion of Jesus’ resurrection.
Now being all grown up my perception and beliefs have changed. Well, they started to change a long time ago – step by step. And not just a little bit…
The fears and threats of religious organizations do not have a hold on my persona and thoughts anymore. The days are gone that I think my sins have to be forgiven by another person, called priest, who then prays to God to forgive me, kind of like a buffer…how insane!
Don’t get me wrong. I adore and respect Jesus, but as a man, like you and me, but with perfect knowledge of the Truth. A man that lived and preached what he understood to be true, telling us that the kingdom of heaven was within us – not in a far-away place. A man that knew what it meant to be one with God; King James Bible: And Jesus answered them, ‘Is it not written in your law, I said, ye are gods?’ including us as divine spiritual beings. (John 10:34) His wisdom was misunderstood by so many. Like all great seers, East and West alike, he was showing the masses what needed to be done in order to find God, everlasting life.
And so on this Easter weekend I will remember that life is eternal. That we do not die and that through finding God and becoming ‘like Him’ we will find infinite bliss. We, like Jesus, are able to make this transition to the next plane consciously. We do not have to fall into deep sleep in order to rise to the next dimension. We are meant to live and to unfold from within. We are all His children and so I rest assured that I am made of the same substance, perfect intelligence, goodness and wisdom, as this great Universal Almighty power that we call God.
Have a wonderful and uplifting Easter Holiday!
