Death has occurred, and now the birth of Christ is at hand.
Father, I accept fully your will for me. Your will is only
that I be happy and use time to extend my treasure.
Now, I receive the warmth of your Light and your Love.
What I learned
In the last section, Jeshua asked me to add something to my five minute meditation. He asked me to look at the circle of my journey and see myself completing it. He asks me to do this for seven weeks and then to reaffirm that commitment to releasing everything unlike Love in myself on that last day. Jeshua gives me a simple ceremony to mark a new beginning. Until now I have been journeying to the kingdom and now I am preparing to journey within it. He compares this to graduate school.
I did this process last year. Spiritual ceremonies like this one can be very helpful in moving my mind from the everyday stuff of my life into the sacred life. Each morning for seven weeks as I sat as Christ I imagined myself taking another step around that ancient circle of life in which I have experienced all there is to experience. I saw myself coming toward the end of the journey. I imagined myself reborn. Then on Christmas morning I greeted the day as the sun rose and I made my commitment to Self. I will dedicate myself to my Awakening. I dedicate my time to releasing all that keeps me from knowing myself fully as Christ.
