The Time ofYour Resurrection has come.
What is The Resurrection?Very simply, the resurrection is the overcoming or
surmounting of death.
It is a reawakening or a rebirth; a change of mind
about the meaning of the world. It is the acceptance
of the Holy Spirit's interpretation of the world's
purpose; the acceptance of the Atonement for oneself.
It is the end of dreams of misery, and the glad awareness
of the Holy Spirit's final dream. It is the recognition
of the gifts of God. It is the dream in which the body
functions perfectly, having no function except communication.
It is the lesson in which learning ends, for it is
consummated and surpassed with this. It is the
invitation to God to take His final step. It is
the relinquishment of all other purposes, all other
interests, all other wishes and all other concerns.
It is the single desire of the Son for the Father.
from the Manual for Teachers
The resurrection is the denial of death, being the
assertion of life. Thus is all the thinking of the
world reversed entirely. Life is now recognized as
salvation, and pain and misery of any kind perceived
as hell. Love is no longer feared, but gladly welcomed.
Idols have disappeared, and the remembrance of God shines
unimpeded across the world. Christ's face is seen in every
living thing, and nothing is held in darkness, apart from
the light of forgiveness. There is no sorrow still upon
the earth. The joy of Heaven has come upon it.
Here the curriculum ends. From here on, no directions are
needed. Vision is wholly corrected and all mistakes undone.
Attack is meaningless and peace has come. The goal of the
curriculum has been achieved. Thoughts turn to Heaven and
away from hell. All longings are satisfied, for what
remains unanswered or incomplete? The last illusion
spreads across the world, forgiving all things and
replacing all attack. The whole reversal is accomplished.
Nothing is left to contradict the Word of God. There is
no opposition to the truth. And now the truth can come at
last. How quickly will it come as it is asked to enter and
envelop such a world!
All living hearts are tranquil with a stir of deep anticipation,
for the time of everlasting things is now at hand. There is no
death. The Son of God is free. And in his freedom is the end of
fear. No hidden places now remain on earth to shelter sick
illusions, dreams of fear and misperceptions of the universe.
All things are seen in light, and in the light their purpose
is transformed and understood. And we, God's children, rise
up from the dust and look upon our perfect sinlessness. The
song of Heaven sounds around the world, as it is lifted up
and brought to truth.
Now there are no distinctions. Differences have disappeared
and Love looks on Itself. What further sight is needed? What
remains that vision could accomplish? We have seen the face
of Christ, His sinlessness, His Love behind all forms, beyond
all purposes. Holy are we because His holiness has set us
free indeed! And we accept His holiness as ours; as it is.
As God created us so will we be forever and forever, and we
wish for nothing but His Will to be our own. Illusions of
another will are lost, for unity of purpose has been found.
These things await us all, but we are not prepared as yet to
welcome them with joy. As long as any mind remains possessed
of evil dreams, the thought of hell is real. God's teachers
have the goal of wakening the minds of those asleep, and
seeing there the vision of Christ's face to take the place
of what they dream. The thought of murder is replaced with
blessing. Judgment is laid by, and given Him Whose function
judgment is. And in His final judgment is restored the truth
about the holy Son of God. He is redeemed, for he has heard
God's Word and understood its meaning. He is free because he
let God's Voice proclaim the truth. And all he sought before
to crucify are resurrected with him, by his side, as he
prepares with them to meet his God.
