Through the familiar rhythmic spiritual festivals such as Easter and the Equinox we are reminded of endings and beginnings coming together in perfect harmony, balancing each other out perfectly to achieve a new equilibrium.
Tomorrow’s Easter Full Moon occurs as time is out of balance as it accommodates the acceleration of a changing world, while in the kingdom of nature peace balances anger, water tempers fire, and sacrifice is rewarded. Too often it goes unnoticed, but these are special moments and it is important for us hear and learn from them, true elemental messengers sent by Gaia.
At this time of Easter initiation, Passover, and lunar completion, the Elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water are speaking ever more clearly, promising change and renewal, for Easter is about transformation and new life, death and resurrection. It is about spiritual evolution epitomised in our Easter story whereby a cycle of soul learning and achievement came to a finale that was filled with pain, but which in reality was a gift to humanity and a reward to the Master Jesus, the focus of these great events, who underwent his last major initiation on the Cross. The great Teacher had completed what he came to do, and so was able to move on.
Nature was a part of it, and with the Spirit of Fire Jesus, on the Cross, experienced his own chosen way of purification in order to overcome the ultimate human challenge of achieving perfection. All human frailty in him was consumed to release him into the full Light of God. He knew that when the mind vibrates to the highest aspect of Spirit, the individual is the embodiment of the divine, and is filled with the spirit and the colours of God. He knew the importance of the links between man and the Earth, and how much both can help each other.
Nature, unlike humanity, is not affected by the plague of emotional doubts and fears that hold us in our mental prison, particularly now, and which our soul longs to relinquish in order to find spiritual freedom. She is divine, mentally free, and has been this way always: unlike most of us, her absolute perfection shines out like a beacon. She is the great survivor, and will live on far beyond our human race; she understands the meaning of balance, of ritual, of rhythm and of life and death.
She does not need messengers, or intermediaries, as we sometimes think we do. It is time to hear the voice of God directly, you and I, in the wind and the birdsong, in the running waters and especially in the silence. I encourage you, this Easter, as life begins and ends with the changing seasons, as people celebrate and mourn perhaps, to find the time to listen to the quiet which is around you always even in the busiest surroundings; so doing will take you to a place of peace far from human frailty, a place and state of being where you will find inspiration in God’s message, spoken just for you.
