Lent 2013 (35th Day of Lent)

Monday, March 25, 2013
Today we affirm without hesitation that God dwells within us. We are open and receptive to all of the transformations that express in and through us as we surrender to our newly realized Spiritual energy.
In his 'Keep a True Lent' lesson for the Monday of Holy Week, Charles Fillmore wrote of the new possibility for combining our human experience and our Spiritual truth into one transcendent existence. And Evelyn Underhill, in her mediatation for this same day, wrote about the same energy:
"The double action of the soul, standing away
from the Perfect in contemplation and seeking
union with it in love, and this double consciouness
of the Holy as both our Home and our Father, are
the characters of a fully developed Christian
Jesus demonstrated this double action of the soul throughout His entire ministry, embracing the rich experiences of His human existence without ever losing sight of His true identity as Spirit. He calls us to do the same, to be in the world but not of it.
The Book of Revelation expresses this new possibility as the coming of  "a new heaven and a new earth... Behold, the dwelling of God is with men."  (Revelation 21:1-3)
