Easter is upon us again. It's a time for Christians to remember the important messages that this occasion brings to us. It is also a lesson for us all.
The primary message is that God loves us, the spirit is eternal, and that all is forgiven. We are all worthy of heaven. Whether or not you believe in an afterlife is not important. Heaven is here for you now.
Jesus' final commandment to his disciples was this – to love one another. This is the message he preached throughout his ministry. It was described in detail in his sermon on the mount. “Love one another as you would have another love you.”
Isn't this an important message and lesson for us all! Love is the greatest power in the universe. It is ever-increasing and multiplies as we pass it on. It is inspirational and contagious. The gift you give to another is the gift that will return. It is also the biggest gift you can give yourself.
Jesus taught us that this life as we perceive it is but an illusion. We may be in this world, but we are not of it. Our real nature is that we are spirit. That is the spirit of love.
Love is without any conditions. It extends and multiplies. It does not recognize any fault in any other. It simply is our natural state of being and is for all.
Whether or not you are a Christian, you can look at the lessons of Easter in a figurative sense. Whether or not Jesus was resurrected is not as important as remembering the lessons that he imparted while he was in his body. Love is the greatest healing force there is. There is no separation from the source of our being. We are all brothers and sisters. We are one.
To those who believe in the resurrection, there is a message of hope for all. That message is that life is eternal. There is no death.
This is a time to remember great joy. Joy is the essence of your being. It also multiplies as you extend it to another. To follow that path will only lead to a sense of well-being and create the reality of heaven here and now.
Easter is a time of personal connection to what you believe to be true. The answers are within. Whatever you believe will necessarily manifest. Let that be love, joy and peace.
Let go of your strife and suffering. Embrace what makes you feel good and whole. As a human, you may feel broken, but love is the answer. It will create your wholeness or holiness.
I encourage each of you to dig deep and to allow goodness to flow to you and through you. That's all God wants for any of his children. Choose to allow only that which is love to express itself. You are worthy and you deserve it.
