The Resurrection Love: Easter Paradise Lived Now
Resurrection Life is now.
Resurrection: the evergreen promise of immortality, the living rosary of risen Love, the sovereign peace of Presence.
The inner landscapes of resurrection Presence, illumines our hearts in gentle joy and starlit wonder. Our shared Life springs alive in communion. We behold Easter creation each moment, fresh and infinite.
The word, the feeling, of Easter serenely ranges all the way from the Beloved Christ’s blazing glory to the liberation grace of passover; from the soft beauty of white spring flowers to the smiling gifts of chocolate rabbits; from the pastel colored eggs to brimming garden baskets of confections. Easter and resurrection evokes everything from serene reverence to wide-eyed childlike wonderment.
Easter enlivens the fresh feeling-knowing of dawn, new life, liberation, resurrection, and paradise compassion.
Word origins for Easter include the older German word for east, which derives from an ancient Latin word for dawn. In springtime, the dawns symbolize the beginning of days which are longer than, and that outlast the dark of nights. Dawn evokes the skylit honeycomb of amber rose peace amidst the white lillies of forgiveness.
The French word for Easter, paques, springs directly from the Hebrew word for passover, pesach. The springtime passover signifies freedom from slavery to persons or situations, the celebration of heart-felt trustworthy liberation.
Pesach means to pass over. One translation defines the word as meaning: to have compassion. Some early aramaic translators, rather than translating“pass over” translated ve’eychos, which means “I will have compassion.” Another term zevach pesach (Exodus 12:17) was translated as zevach chamlah, which means: the sacrifice of mercy.
In the Peshitta (5th century Aramaic New Testament) the word used for resurrection in Genesis 9:9 is q’yam’ta which translates in Hebrew as tequmah. The word for resurrection, tequmah, is derived from the verbal root meaning to rise up or stand up. Resurrection: stand.
The eternal Life, spirit Life is ever risen….it ever Is. It stands immortal, immaculate, changeless. In the light of eternal Love, death, destruction and suffering dissolves so completely, it is seen to have no true power, and no trace of existence. Presence stands, nothing else does. Eternal Love stands, nothing else does.
Resurrection symbolizes the tender power of actualized Grace — the oceanic dissolving of the rigid way of death, suffering or limitation. Awake as resurrection Life, shining in and as the abode of God, is knowing self as ineffable happiness.
One with God Presence, we know the Life that ever Is….Is alive. It is tequmah, ever standing-staying afresh, as spirit Presence. True Life ever Is— it does not rise and then pass away. It is beyond birth and death.
As resurrection Life, we know self as undying holy Love.
Easter, pesach, resurrection Life reveals God Presence, as omnipresence everywhere. The wonder and fresh miracle of Easter spirit is ever with us. Knowing self as one with Presence Love, is knowing the Light of Happiness, and being the Light of the world.
The true nature of all beings— living Spirit — is not born and does not die. Presence Life, resurrection Life, is not transient, or dominated. It is not at the mercy of persons or conditions. Identifying as the living waters of resurrection Life, sufferings and crucifixions disappear in oceans of grace.
Die a Good Death , Live the Miraculous Resurrection Life
“Those who are born are destined to die, and those who die are destined to live.” (Pirkei Avot 4:22) The true self, immortal grand spirit does not really take birth or suffer death.
“Dying” to an identity of a limited, conditioned persona, means being consciously and preciously alive as infinite Spirit of endless bliss. The simple and supreme nature of Spirit, one with God Presence, is that of supreme Love, deep peace, spacious stillness, pure giving, and undying Life. The natural way of Presence is undying, tender Eternal Love.
Die a good death.
Die a little good death this moment. What beckons to die? What is not real of you or true Life? What unresolved hurt, judgmental thought, aching longing, painful limitation, false identification, or sense of separation longs for release? Let it happily die, here, now.
Not to die into negation….or suppression….or aloneness….or fear…or neglect….or judgment.
Let the hurting places or limiting conceptions die into Love.
Spirit Presence is immense, immeasurable, unconditioned Pure Love.
Let all other than Love, die into Love.
At the root of all the little deaths, lies the core death: the death of a sense of separation from Eternal Love, the secure death of the washing away of identity as a self-focused “me” an egoic persona. Awaken from the learned sense, the perceived sense of separation and fear.
Still…..alive as God Presence.
“If we have been united with him in a death like his, we have been united with him in a resurrection like his.” (Romans 6:4)
Jesus, Yeshua, revealed gentle blazing holy Love in the midst of the crucifixion. Being love in the midst of the crucifixion moment, reveals the timeless resurrection Life as supreme.
The crucifixion and resurrection does not prove rejection or affirm death. The crucifixion-resurrection illustrates that hatred has no power and death is not real.
The mystical death means to “die” to the sense of egoic identity and awake as Eternal Love, immortal Presence, here, now.
In Spirit Life, the essence self, we have already been united in the messianic death, the revealed non-arising of separation or fear. We have already been united-one as resurrection Love. “For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we have been united with him in a resurrection like his” (Romans 6:4).
Knowing this inherent treasure as a way of life, means being unconditional happiness. Die to all that creates and perpetuates suffering. Die a good death, a messianic death, a death of false identities. Die a good death, a death of hurts dying into vast and tender Love. Right where the surface and temporal dies, the eternal miraculous Life already Is. The miraculous joy of being happiness and sharing grace is here, it is now, it is the way of each moment. Eternal Easter: the perpetual instant of plentiful fruition of all good fortune and kind experience.
I Am the Resurrection and the Life
A death like Yeshua’s death evaporates the shallow and the harsh. Resurrection is the remembrance of the ever living God Presence, Holy Love, Supreme Light.
Christ proclaimed: I Am the resurrection and the Life (John 11:25).
To know self as resurrection Life, means moving far past crucifixion as a historical past or a religious event. We move beyond the misty eyed response to the religious watershed of messianic pathos turned victorious. We move through the tangible crucifixion-dissolution of the species-based fear, competition, egoic surviving or insensitivies. The personal “me” fixation is transcended as true dawn Dawns: I am Spirit, resurrection Life, eternal Love.
I am the resurrection and the life.
I am means now. I am the resurrection, means infinite.
In intense or pressured moments we may long to leap ahead. We may anticipate relief, restoration or a prayed-for-resurrection in some future moment, in some imagined forthcoming time.
Thus, unwittingly, the knowing of resurrection Life, dilutes by distancing it to the memories of the past or delaying it into the projections of the future. Presence Life does not dilute, the lived experience of it dims when the timeless is placed into the limits of time, of past and future.
To know resurrection Life, eternal Life, rest in the non-diluted, already here, resurrection Life now. It Is now. It is here. It is the true Life, already present.
Open to feel the blessing of gently, profoundly, naturally and intimately knowing the resurrection Life now, as the one spirit Life of you.
Know the Easter liberation of pathos-immersed serene peace. Peace comes from awareness of fullness of life, wherein no lack exists.
Feel the freeing spaciousness of former concepts of self released. In resurrection Life, the crucifying (negative or painful) thoughts soften. And the so called “bad” and so called “good” thought stream no longer consumes attention. Life is lived from and as resurrection Life which is resurrection Love, pristine Love beyond loveless feelings or images.
In Eternal Life, feel the clear illumination that liberates binding attachments to thoughts, beliefs and memories. The personal self-focus of ego fixation, gently washes away to the fresh real of zero point (emptiness of conditions, limitations and heart contraction).
Welcome the warm, golden illumination—the death-shattering, ego-unwinding, glory-alighting resurrection. Life Is. Creation Is. God Is.
Inquire, how deeply does resurrection life alight here and now, as the clear heart-of-being? Open in gentle ineffable knowing of Love, knowing of God, knowing of the supreme Light.
Gentle peace dawns in the spontaneous kind resounding of: resurrection, resurrection, resurrection….resurrection Life, resurrection Life, resurrection Life….
Already….still….alive as That.
Right here, what is the resurrection to you, for you, as you? Who or what of “you” knows spirit glory beaming out through the seeming dust of crucifixions, or smudges of unkindness. Awake as resurrection Life, and see that the “I” beyond the “me” lives liberated from the fear of death or the absorption with objects, names and forms.
Rest in the deep peace of easter land, pure land. Know the soft joy of the beauty of stillness, and infinite flourish, far beyond even the faintest memory of the old serial treadmills of transient incompletions. Resurrection Life is the essence of completion and fulfillment.
Rejoice as the eternal resurrection.
Resurrection is now because eternal Life is now.
Eternal life is now because God Presence is timeless and limitless and ever Itself without change or death.
Eternal Life is divine Love. Resurrection is the eternal Love knowing itself, without knowing any opposite to itself.
Resurrection awareness gazes right through rough terrains of loveless words heard or lacking images seen—to see and hear beyond the five senses— to know the Easter landscape of edenic harmony.
Easter Paradise: Trust
Yeshua, on the cross said: ….”today, you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43). The word today, semeron, also translates as now. Now you are with me in paradise. Now you are in paradise. Now you are the spirit Presence that is paradise.
The word paradise, paradeisos, translates as a grand enclosure, an upper region in the heavens, the abode of God. Paradise is unconditioned happiness. We exist as sat-chit-ananda, which means being-consciousness-bliss. Bliss is the happiness of being eternal Love, one with Supreme Creator.
In the midst of the crucifixion, Yeshua revealed the depth of Supreme Love, knowing the paradise of resurrection Life.
The events, circumstances, thought forms and feelings are temporal arisings, based on a sense of separation from God Presence. Yet, we ever exist as resurrection Life, eternal Life, the paradise of Eden, non-separated from our home as happiness.
The separation has not happened in the way it seems.
Paradise has not been lost.
Knowing self as one with God has not ultimately or truly been lost. This moment, this timeless now, open to know self as paradise life, Presence Life, eternal Life.
We lose the direct knowing of paradise, of changeless happiness, when we identify as a body-mind, an egoic “me” that has to survive. As the species has identified with separation, it learns to mistrust others, self, life and God. One of our modern day crucifixions is the loss of trust, the experience of mistrust.
Yet, just as paradise has not been lost, oneness with God has not been lost, trust has not been lost.
Knowing resurrection Life, eternal Love, means knowing the infinite diamond purity of supreme trust.
To know God Presence is to know deep, tender, ineffable trust. Eternal trust has no opposite and does not change.
Being resurrection Life, the infinite Consciousness, know the bliss of trust: God Is, Eternal Love Is.
I am the resurrection Life
