Easter Reminders

"Morning Has Broken"

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day 

NOW Is The Time!

Time for a new Spirit.
Time to renewed Life.
Time to remember Truth.
Time to be True to You.

What keeps us from our ever-renewing Spirit is the past.
What holds us in the grips of dying is mourning our death.
What teaches us false beliefs is forgetting what we know True.
What seduces us to cling to others’ ways, is betraying our own.

Now is our time to awaken from the sleep of death.
We can break our “mourning” and find the light of new life.
We can resurrect our selves with the freedom of forgiveness.
Our ever-renewing Spirit can rise again every morning.

Can you imagine how to clear your mind and open your heart?
Can you feel what it is to be New again and again?
Can you carry with you the song of praise and gratitude for life?
Can you see what will be when you let go and know you are forever? 

Is the symbolism of Easter and springtime and Passover to be born again?
Are you here to embrace eternality in our reality?
Can we step away from the fear and attraction of ending with death?
Are you ready to die daily and begin again anew?

We can plow under old fields of consciousness each night as we sleep.
We can awaken each morning with an open field of possibility and joy.
We can forgive and erase what was and resurrect into what can be.
We can emerge from the cocoon of caution into simplicity of eternal life.

Abundance is given with full freedom of choice.
We can release the manna of yesterday to receive the fruits of today.
We can allow ourselves to live in trust in continuous provision.
We can rise in the morning and know all we need is given.

Life after life or death after death?
Each breath breathed but once and another breath follows.
Honoring the whole and forgetting the lack.
Appreciating what is and release what isn’t.

How much can we do to remember what is true?
Let go of what is stuck and lingers too long.
Get up from attachments and sing a new song.
Stop suffering and relinquish the past.

Now is our time to awaken from fear.
There is no time for malevolent lingering in sorrow and pain.
Get up from your bed and walk toward the light.
You and only you can choose what is true.

Easter is a reminder of the ever-renewing Truth.
Life is eternal.
There is no death…..unless we believe it to be so.
Forgive our misunderstanding and let it go.

Love is the Trust that set us all free.
