The Resurrection of Jesus
is not simply the appearances of Jesus to his disciples
after His death.
The True resurrection
is Jesus' passing beyond the world altogether.
It was an event Not in space and time,
but Jesus' passage beyond space and time
to the Eternal,
We too are invited to this world.
And we do not have to wait
for physical death.
we must go beyond the outer appearances
of our senses
and beyond the inner concepts of our minds,
to the reality of
The Divine Within.
Jesus told his disciples,
He must go from them,
for if He did not go,
the Spirit would not come.
Jesus departs in the flesh
to become present in the Spirit.
Jesus is present
to each and every one of us
in the depths of our souls
beyond our senses and beyond our mind.
We must transcend
the limits of institutional structures
and be Open to the Spirit within.
