“Behold thine immortal Self resurrected with Christ
in the illuminating Light of Christ Consciousness,
present in every soul, every flower, every atom.”
— Paramahansa Yogananda
Excerpt from a beautiful Easter 2010 message
that I found on the Self Realization Fellowship website.
How deeply our hearts respond to Christ’s tender compassion,
for our own true nature is love.
We rejoice at his victory over human limitations
because within every one of us is the urge to express our boundless soul.
While the world prompts us to live on the surface of life,
reacting to people and experiences according to the ego’s likes and dislikes,
Christ and all God-united souls blaze before us
the trail to freedom and divine expansion.
Gurudeva Paramahansa Yogananda said,
“The love that most persons feel for dearest family and friends,
Jesus felt for the whole world and every living being.”
...To follow in his footsteps, we too must go within.
This Easter, renew your resolve to nourish by meditation
your relationship with the Divine,
and to practice Christ’s way of kindness,
forgiveness and loving service to all.

I love this Pre-Raphaelite painting. I picked up a postcard of it, many years ago, somewhere on my travels. It's been in a small gold frame in my place, almost ever since. Easter seemed an appropriate time to share it.
