The symbol behind Easter

Do not focus on Jesus the man,
Do not focus only on the words
of the story.
Feel it in your heart.

The story of Jesus
is the embodiment,
the mirror
of our own story.

Let's look at it
in relation with our own life:
there is a time when we think we know all,
when our affairs are going well,
a time when life flows easily.

At some moments
we do not know why,
things seems to freeze,
we feel prisoners.
Whe are in the jails
of the temporal power
the belief in a separate material world :
money problems, work problems,
family problems, health problems,...

We think : "Why?Why?"
and they are time when no solution seems to appear.
We turn and turn desperately in our minds
like does a computer's hard disk
looking for some data.
But no stored data can answer our questions.
We then feel lost...
It is our Golgotha.

Even if usually our faith is strong,
when the cross of our problems becomes too heavy,
in those moments when we feel
completely powerless,
we may imagine ourselves as completely cut from the Source.
This step is what is called the "ninth hour"
in the Gospel of St Mark,
it's a time when Jesus is supposed to have said :
"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

The ninth hour is the last step of the cycle of our belief
in the duality of the world.
With the tenth hour come the return of the One (1+0),
the revelation our true nature.

In fact God or our true nature never left
but the ninth hour brought us at a place
from where all our illusions emerge :
the Golgotha...which means "the place of a skul".
We can interpret it as the "head",
the place from where all our ideas of suffering
and separation are born.

The next steps of the story are the release of the ghost
or total letting go.
Then the Sabbath,
a day when all men should abstain from any action,
a step of absolute release to the operation of the living Universe.

Look at how this can apply perfectly as a step by step process
to get out of any desperate situation in our life :

1) We feel prisoner of a material power (Pilates)
2) Our problem is felt as a crucifiction.
3) We feel abandoned even by the spiritual power we used to believe in.
4) We do not accept to let go
5) We finally leave our heads (Golgotha) and release the Spirit
6) We let the law of spirit clean the mess

Then you know the end of the story.
The next day, we are already raised from the dead,
there is no separation, no body left in the sepulchre
and the Gospel says :

"He that believeth shall be saved"
