Resting In Our Father “Pay Forward” #21

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Resting In Our Father. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. A time to weep, and a time to dance” Ecclesiastes 3. “After Jesus’ crucifixion He was laid to rest in the tomb…” Resting in our Father Presence, His body was radically transformed into a pure Spiritual Being, gathering strength for greater works to follow. After resting in the tomb, He awakened to His True Self. I am reminded of the caterpillar one day stops eating, hangs upside down from a twig and spins itself a silky cocoon [tomb]. Resting in its protective casing, the caterpillar’s body is radically transformed, emerging as a butterfly. “You would know the secret of death. But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life? …In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond; And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring. Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity…And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered? – Kahlil Gibran. The spiritual principles given to A.A. from the teachings of our Hero lets us seek and find our Father, unencumbered. Thy Love Thy Will be done.
