Can you fathom that the love which looks through your eyes is the same love that looked through the eyes of Jesus Christ? The difference is in your experience. Jesus experienced His union with the Divine in each and every moment. Even when the nails were driven into His hands, He was aware of the Love that lived within him – beyond this life, body, and mind – was the same Presence of Love that lived within all others. He saw the Divine equally – in those who loved him and those who persecuted Him. He bore witness to the Presence of Love within all beings, even if they could not. He still does. This is why so many miracles are done in His name. He witnesses only your deepest truth.
And thus it is said that He “saved you from your sins.” We would paraphrase this by saying that He saved you from the illusion that darkness can ever separate you from Love. In His willingness to love through the greatest of human miseries – torture, betrayal, beating, death, denial, ignorance, greed, hatred, fear – He lifted the entire fabric of human consciousness into a new realm of possibility for love.
He lived and demonstrated the truth that light is, and always will be, more powerful than darkness, and that even when the darkness attempts to kill the light it cannot triumph. His body was killed and yet through the entire process He knew he was not the body. He knew that His spirit was eternal. In his complete understanding of this Truth, He was able to forgive his torturers and even breathe life back into His physical body.
Just as the Christ light lived within Jesus, so too the Christ light, the Divine love, the spark of the Source lives in you. This light sources you and shapes you as surely as the ocean sources and shapes a wave. There is, and never can be, a separation from the Divine. You either experience the love that breathes life into you, or you block it. You either feel the love for all of life that wants to flow through you or you block it.
So while the body of Jesus did indeed resurrect, the deeper meaning of the resurrection is there is no pain, no darkness, no betrayal, denial, or abuse so powerful that it can kill the love within you. With the power of your will you can Resurrect Love in this world… any time you choose. With dedication, you too can embody Love so thoroughly that the darkness of the world cannot rob you of the experience of this light.
Dear ones, It is in your willingness to acknowledge the presence of light within yourself and even the darkest among you, that you resurrect love and allow light to triumph over dark, love to triumph over hate, and Truth to triumph over the illusions that you or anyone else could ever be separate from this love.
Happy Passover. Happy Easter. Happy Spring. Happy present moment in which you can embody and resurrect love… right here, right now.
