Easter, from a MetaSpiritual Perspective
Understanding the true message of Easter means understanding who Jesus really was; and what the Only Begotten Son, the cross, the crucifixion, the resurrection and the ascension symbolize in terms of humankind’s spiritual journey – in terms of your spiritual journey:
Jesus (his real name was Yeshua) was a highly enlightened adept who fully demonstrated his Divine Nature 2000 years ago. He represents that quality within us that knows we are individual expressions of the One Reality, the Eternal Presence.
The Only Begotten Son is a phrase we call a mean manipulative meme. The word ‘son’ was added to place maleness above femaleness; inequality over equality. The Only Begotten is the Cosmic Logos (the Primordial Vibration, the Original Pulse, the Catalytic Sound) of the Eternal Mindlike Presence morphing Itself into physicality. There’s only one ‘begotten emanation’ from the Eternal Mindlike Consciousness– the Cosmic Logos! (The phrase ‘only begotten’ comes from the Greek monogenes which means ‘the only one of its kind within a specific relationship’ or ‘the only unique one.’ ‘Son’ was inserted to sell Jesus as the only offspring of an anthropomorphic god in the sky. Also, see our Spanda reference in the Additional Topics section)
The Cross we bear is our physical body. The cross bar (our cruciform nature) represents human egocentric consciousness, what we call coma consciousness. The vertical bar represents Spirit’s (the Cosmic Logos’) descent (morphing Itself) into matter (each of us in skin school) as highly-charged spiritual Substance.
TheCrucifixion means ‘crossing out our individual human error and karmic baggage’ by totally and completely subordinating our unenlightened ego to our highly super-conscious Divine Nature. From a dogmatic religious perspective, the crucifixion is a gruesome religious symbol which retails guilt, sin, shame, blood, suffering, and condemnation. From a MetaSpiritual perspective, it represents our willingness to align our human self with our Divine Nature, and cross out error thinking!
Tomb represents a high state of consciousness where we integrate and assimilate all previous higher consciousness material in order to unfold fully into our Divine Nature. When we create time for meditation — to go into the Silence — we are entering that space of high consciousness where we can allow the assimilation and integration to occur. (We believe daily meditation is the one non-negotiable in Spiritual Enlightenment! It is what gives your spiritual enrichment traction so you can make spiritual practices a way of life!)
Resurrection symbolizes a restoration, a revitalization, a reclamation, a re-booting of our unenlightened ego to its super-conscious Divine Essence.
Ascension is the rise of the kundalini energies from our Base Chakra to our Crown Chakra. It occurs when we become fully enlightened. Our body becomes the etherealized New Jerusalem embodiment the Book of Revelation describes so we can travel in any dimension of being. The ascension is the Holy Grail, the Philosopher’s Stone humankind has been searching for thousands of years. From a MetaSpiritual perspective, the ascension is a fully-charged Crown Chakra moment.
In other words, by the end of your Easter story you’ll be Home again. You’ll have found your Spiritual IP Address! And the only thing that has to ‘die’ is your unenlightened ego!
But wait! There’s one more important Easter symbol to look at and that’s the stone that sealed the tomb.
The stone represents a huge part of the traditional Easter story, because the Romans rolled a huge stone in the opening of the gravesite, and to ensure no one would steal the body, they sealed it and posted guards at the site.
The Gospels have different stories about what exactly happened next — on what we now call Easter morning … some have 3 women coming, another has 2, and in John only Mary Magdalene comes to the grave. But all four accounts agree on one thing: the stone had been rolled away… and Jesus had resurrected!
The women represent a high state of intuition, which indicates that our complete alignment of human and Divine selves must come from our intuition, not just our rational side.
The stone, from a MetaSpiritual perspective, represents anything that is standing in our way of aligning our human self with our Divine Self – anything that creates the illusion of separation.
A Spiritual Practice
What “stones” in your life are holding you back from being the complete extraordinary Divine Being you truly are? Your stone might be false beliefs – belief in lack, belief in the necessity of illness, belief that you aren’t good enough, smart enough, attractive enough … It might be a stone of doubt … Or maybe it is a grudge you are hanging on to that is blocking the flood of good into your life … or fear …
We invite you to take a few moments right now to identify any stones that are holding you back from your greatest good, from your spiritual enlightenment. Acknowledge that this stone needs to be rolled away to make space for your personal resurrection experience. Go into the Silence, and roll away that stone! Celebrate the new YOU – the YOU aligned with your Divine Nature. The You that is resurrected into Oneness, ready to experience all life has to offer. With this new vision, we affirm that you are now stepping into a amazing, extraordinary, awe-inspiring Resurrection Experience … as you walk the spiritual path on practical feet!
