Easter has always held a special meaning for me.
My mother went into labor on Good Friday, and I was born in the early hours of Easter morning 1957, ten days after my parents had been told I had died in the womb.
My family said it was an Easter miracle.
As a student of A Course in Miracles, I’m into miracles. From the standpoint of the Course, a miracle is a shift in perspective from fear to love. And the best part of miracles?
They can happen every day.
Whenever I feel myself acknowledge my fearful thoughts or feelings (anger, resentment, stress) and meet those with love (compassion, forgiveness, presence) I experience a miracle.
When I open myself to this type of thinking, and ask the Divine within for guidance, my experience of life changes. While I may be dealing with chaos, instead of feeling helpless, I can begin to feel the true comfort, support and love that is always available.
Remembering that miracles can be simply a thought away is a daily practice for me. Learning to live from a foundation of love has been a lifelong journey and it all started that Easter morning long ago.
To many, Easter means new Sunday outfits, traditional religious services, big dinners, and chocolate bunnies.
For me, Easter is a reminder of the miracle journey we are all invited to experience.
