The crucifixion invites us to let go of our material, ego selves, into the Christ consciousness,
gaining a higher spiritual understanding of who we are and why we are here. We evolve
into a place where our human nature and our divine nature are aligned and in sync.
The Easter story and Jesus’ vision for the world teaches us only love. By releasing all anger, fear, shame, guilt and judgement over to the divine, to God, we are free to move forward into love.
There are many beliefs around sin and the sacrifice that Jesus made for humanity. Good Friday can be seen as a day of mourning, a time to reflect and feel sadness. It can also be a day to release and let go: A day of Letting go, and letting God.
In our own Lenten practices we may have spent time giving something up. In Unity we have been releasing behaviours and negative thoughts that do not serve us.
So perhaps, Good Friday can be seen as a day of potential. What can I release? What am I ready to say goodbye to? When we focus on releasing, we create space for new possibilities. Now the resurrection and rebirth moves us to a more whole, and more wonderful, way of being.
"Teach only love for that is who you are". This is from A Course in Miracles. This quote gives us insight into the message the Easter story has tell. We reach the heavenly plains of love by removing the barriers to it.
“… Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
