A True Lent Easter

Rise Up

By Rev. Clive deLaporte

I resurrect and rise up daily in the consciousness of the Christ, renewed and revitalized in the Light, Love and Life of God.

The Easter weekend of Good Friday and Easter Sunday brings us to the conclusion of the Passion Week and the keeping of a True Lent. We are reminded of Charles Fillmore’s description of Lent as: “a season of spiritual growth, a time for progressive unfoldment to lift us into a higher, purer, more spiritual state.” This purer, higher more spiritual state is the being and becoming, experiencing and expressing, of our Christ consciousness.

Good Friday reminds us of the first spiritual principle and practice of the Easter weekend and of a True Lent, that of crucifixion. Easter Sunday reminds us of the second spiritual principle and practice of Easter weekend and of a True Lent, that of resurrection. We see in the metaphysical meaning of crucifixion the spiritual practice of crossing out and releasing the error that no longer serves our best and highest good, and we see in metaphysical meaning of resurrection the spiritual practice of rising up and receiving the truth that empowers our best and highest good.

We recognize and give attention to these two spiritually empowering principles and practices at this time of Lent, but these of course should be fundamental to our daily lives. The transformational spiritual power of crucifixion and resurrection are ever present in us and in our life experiences, ever ready and able to provide us with a transformational break through experience. This is always in Divine order, ready when we are, to fulfil its spiritual purpose and work in us, for us, and through us. We cannot schedule spiritual breakthroughs and transformation experiences into our calendars, these appear when we are ready. So the spirit of Lent and the practice of the spiritual principles of crucifixion and resurrection are ever ours to use.

As we persevere in releasing what binds and receiving what blesses, the Divine Christ continues to unfold within us and without through us. Peace and joy become our familiar and constant companions, and we awaken to the song in our heart: “Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! Sons of men and women say, Alleluia! Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia! Love’s redeeming work is done, Alleluia! Fought the fight, the victory won, Alleluia!” Charles Wesley

To one and all I wish a continued and blessed True Lent experience.

I resurrect and rise up daily in the consciousness of the Christ, renewed and revitalized in the Light, Love and Life of God.

Until next week, the bountiful blessing of Divine good to you.

Rev. Clive deLaporte
