Lent 2013 (38th Day of Lent)

Maundy Thursday, March 28, 2013
We surrender the error thoughts that do not conform to our new Spiritual awareness and allow them to pass away. We are new Spiritual beings, centered in and expressive of the Christ Presence within us.
As He sat alone in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus Christ decided to set aside once and for all time every appearance of limitation --- to stand forth in His true Spiritual identity as a shining example for all humanity of the God Presence eager to shine forth from each of us. What is often referred to as His agony was a regretful realization that nothing would ever again be the same. He had richly enjoyed His human experiences as Jesus; He would gladly have continued it longer if that were possible; but He acceded to the Will of God, the Spiritual energy that moved Him forward.
We can easily identify with the bittersweet awareness that change is inevitable, that our comfortable and secure existence takes turns into the unknown. We may know, as Jesus surely knew, that only greater and greater Good awaits. But we also know that every step into a new Spiritual dimension seems at first tp produce confusion and disruption. Emily Cady, in 'Lessons in Truth', called this process "chemicalization." It is brief, but it can be intense.
Charles Fillmore wrote that "this breaking up and passing away of old error states of mind and making ready for new is a process in soul evolution of all those who are faithfully following Jesus" in his full expression of the Chrsit.
