Easter is about endings and beginnings too, and death and resurrection. It is about spiritual transformation, whereby, in our Easter story, a cycle of soul learning and achievement came to a finale that was filled with suffering, 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. He had completed what he came to do, and so was able to move on.
Like the mountains across the Welsh valley, he experienced his own chosen fire of purification, but for him it was in order to overcome the ultimate human challenge of achieving mental perfection. 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 light and the colours of God. This is what Jesus became, and this will be your state too one day.
Soon the mountain fires will burn out, the clouds of ash and grey colour will disperse to leave the clear, pure air and skies that help to make this place of wild nature so special. Nature, unlike humanity, is not affected by the plague of emotional doubts and fears that hold us in our mental prison, 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 pure beauty shines out like a beacon.
It is easy to forget that, like nature, the colours that we carry, and their quality, indicate the state of our mind and of our soul. The clearer, the brighter our light, the closer we are to our spiritual and human pinnacle.
This Easter, if you think about its meaning, you may wish to reflect upon the deeper significance of the story of Jesus, and how he transformed his mental body for it to vibrate with the highest aspect of Spirit. This is your challenge too, and to remember the prize that results from moving into this new state of high consciousness, into mental freedom, may encourage you to persevere with your innate spiritual quest for enlightenment – and for pure, perfect colour.
