The day of Resurrection has arrived, ironically, born out of some of the worst acts of mankind. Once again, the darkness unknowingly served the Light. I love Peter's words in this line of scripture, for their inclusiveness. In this one simple but powerful statement, he encapsulated a potent message of the ministry of Christ, then and now, in a totally non-sectarian way, applicable to all.
Jesus' willing sacrifice showed us how to escape a life of EMPTINESS.
The tomb, which held Christ's body yesterday, is empty of it today. He is Risen. In union with God (ha! a "yogi", showing us how to levitate)....he shows us how to elevate above pettiness, possessiveness, insecurity, slander, gossip, envy, betrayal, competition, hatred, anger, hypocrisy, materialism, emotional blackmail, judgment, the desire to be right, the madness of revenge and retaliation, violence and bullying.
The fearful human psyche holds all of these low vibration traits, which we inherited from our ancestors, who became obsessed with survival, and then with greed, and simply forgot that they were Spirit templed in flesh for a time. We buy in to the insanity hook, line and sinker (wheh-heh-hellll- a fishing image was apropos, for after all Jesus was the "fisher of men" :-) ) until we awaken. The small, egoic self we are protecting, hypnotized by the illusion of the material, is actually killing us, slowly and painfully. We go through mechanical motions of life, joyless, dry and vindictive...and there is nothing more wasteful or sad. If there is such a thing as "sin" then I believe this must be the greatest of them.
It is only when we have suffered enough and are sick and tired of it that we will muster the courage to throw off the shroud and to roll away the stone. Then we too may Arise and prefer the vulnerability of life to the slow decay of death-while-breathing. We too may leave behind all that is of the Shadow, accepting the painful lessons of the Cruxifiction, and enter fully and consciously into the Light. We will know the Bliss of the Resurrection only by allowing the Fire of Love to burn untamed in the now-empty tomb of the heart.
Happy Uprising to you all, with all of my love, holding your hand as we Journey Home
