Good Morning to you my dear friends on this bright and beautiful Easter morning of 2004. The early morning has already been miraculous. A Course in Miracles, opened at random, brought us to just this page:
Death is the central dream from which all illusions stem.
Is it not madness to think of life
as being born,
aging, losing vitality,
and dying in the end?
Of course it is madness. As a ten-year old I got really mad when they said I too, one day, would have to die. I still remember how very angry I was. What was the point in living such miserable terminal life? Fortunately, the first lesson in physics introduced the atom. Presuming it was the energy that carried the consciousness, I told my mother that energy does not die, so I will also not die.
I have a wish: May future Easters be for us to celebrate Christ consciousness and Man’s awakening from the central dream of mortality.
From my note book:
All flowers talk to me and so do hundreds of little living things in the woods. I learn what I know by watching and loving everything.
George Washington Carver as quoted in the Secret Life of Plants.
“Yes” is an acknowledgement of knowledge. The “yes-mind” is a quiet, holistic and joyful mind. The “no-mind” is an agitated, doubting and miserable mind. Loyalty begins with a “yes mind” and starts to perish with a “no mind”.
Jai Guru Dev
