Welcome to spring! It is a season so full of optimism, with new life budding everywhere. The energy of this season seems to be singing ‘celebrate life’! Celebrate that our Source is one of unlimited love, infinite intelligence, benign goodness, and boundless abundance.
We begin this month of April with Easter on April 1st. Easter represents the death of limitation, the death of the old ways, old patterns, old beliefs in limitation, lack, separation, fear, and doubt in our connection to Spirit. This is a fertile time for the resurrection, the birth of the Christ consciousness, in us. This is a consciousness awake to Life guided by Love, Life full of faith in our limitless capacity to evolve, Life wide open to a flow of abundant goodness and blessedness.
We are witnessing what at times seems like chaos in our country and world, and yet there is a consciousness growing that must grow for us to survive and thrive. It is one of love, one of non-violence, one of unity, one of generosity where we create a world of equality and justice for all. A safe world where limited ideas of racism, sexism, bigotry, and hatred die, and ideas of good will, oneness, and loving our neighbor as ourselves, are resurrected.
Our world seems to be going through a LOT of change, at a rate that seems quickened. The news cycle cannot keep up with what seems to be out-picturing every day. The youth of our country have taken tragedy and turned it into passionate desire to create change. They are empowered, poised, organized, and passionately expressing their desire for non-violence in the form of ending gun-violence. They want to feel safe to learn and grow. They are demonstrating for us all what unified, inspired action looks like. They are our future and they are lifting us all up with this new energy. One of the most inspiring things I heard them say was “The Universe is with us, because the Universe is always on the side of justice”. How profoundly wise, coming out of the mouth of our youth.
Charles Fillmore predicted many years ago: “the time is ripe for the advent of a new race, the advent of the spiritualized man. This will be brought about, not by a miracle or the fiat of God, but by the gradual refinement of the man of the flesh into the man of Spirit”.
In this lovely season of spring, may we feel inspired with new energy. May we grow our consciousness through meditation, prayer, and love in action. Be not discouraged by the darkness, but light your candle, and with love, good will, and powerful intention, shine bright! Your life makes a difference!
With love, Rev. Kathy
