The Resurrection is cause for celebration. It gives us hope that we can transcend what is confusing for joy. That we can make it through the trials of earth and rise above.
Be it in our waking life or a resurrection in our unseen heart, we can meditate to uncover that the best of us lives joyfully within.
Sit in a quiet spot where you will not be disturbed. If the weather is mild, a garden space is perfect. If you are at your meditation altar, light a candle and incense. Have a meditation journal and pen nearby.
Close your eyes. Start some rounds of even breathing, without any strain, such as: breathe in 2 counts; breathe out 2 counts; breathe in 2 counts and continue this way throughout your meditation.
Now, say a prayer of thankfulness for realizing that the path to the Divine lies within to be taken out into the world for action.
Dwell on what the Resurrection means to you. Ask yourself how you can resurrect dormant joy for your happiness and joy in daily living.
Think with appreciation about all the good that is in your life and for your family and friends. Pray for those you know of that are in need; pray for health and well being for all on our planet. By extending ourselves in prayer to others we strengthen our realization we are intertwined and a useful part of humanity.
Take some time for sitting quietly and listening to your breath. Gradually come back to every day reality. Open your eyes and write new insights in your meditation journal for later review.
Stretch out, go on with your day, renewed and refreshed.
Brings an awakening of joy
Through the bursting wide open
Of our heart.
