Easter is a joyful time to celebrate and remember that our true self and eternal home is with all dear, near and everyone in the home of our Creator - Sustainer. This prayer is a reminder that we grow into our fullest development of self by being loving and forgiving with everyone beginning with our self.
"Uplifted eyes see light so bright
A memory of those bygone days
A Savior came upon the earth
And showed us all the truth, the way
To act with love, to act with care
To give and be forgiving.
To show we want the whole wide world
To know we are forgiven
Of all the small and larger ways
We ere when not our pure care given
But with the grace of God's own love
Find faith and hope in living.
So, fully does our true self grow
We learn to be as lights of love
God rose in all our hearts we know
To shine through us from heaven above."
After praying take time for a period of silent meditation to reflect on the personal meaning of Easter to you. Begin with a few rounds of even rhythmic breathing to center your body and mind. Close your eyes and be still for a few minutes.
It is a good idea to write out your insights in a journal so you can review your thoughts from time to time. Let Easter be a new beginning as Spring is a new beginning - an opportunity to grow right along with nature into the full beauty of your eternal Self.
