willing to go all the way to the cross for us and for all of humanity, releasing us from our failures.
When we walk with Jesus to the cross and wish to live with the mind and heart of Christ, in Christ Consciousness, we enter into a way of being that is in full Flow with life in God. We open our hearts for God's vision to become the reality of our lives and the life of the world--through us. We can walk in that Flow even as we walk down the uneven, cobblestone road filled with chaos, hatred, and crazy-making, because we keep in our hearts and mind's eye the vision of God that is love, not fear, and compassion, not separateness.
When we stand with Jesus at the foot of the cross, we let go of all expectations for how we think it all must be for our lives to be "perfect," and we fall mercifully into the arms of God. We let go of forcing our own way, and we allow God's perfect way to unfold with grace and ease.
Jesus' life and death was a beautiful witness to God's perfection, a life lived with faith and trust. In Jesus, we know what is possible.
As we mourn today for the cruel and unnecessary death of Jesus, let us mourn for ourselves too, and the whole world, for the loss of remembrance of God's presence among us and within us, and for our failure to live into the vision of how beautiful it all can be, if we let God be in control rather than the ego mind which insists it knows best.
Good Friday is good because we see that God's way is the best and most perfect way, reflected in the life and dying breaths of Jesus Christ, and this way is Love.
The peace of Christ be with you,
