In Life we either under estimate many things or take too many things for granted as the normal way of life that we miss the importance and joy that simple things can offer us.
We come to Church every Sunday and perform our Obligation but do not realize how each Sunday is Easter in the true sense of the word which means it is always the Resurrection day and a celebratory time for us all.
Jesus is offering unto us all the spiritual graces attached to the First Easter which was given to the apostles and witnesses of those days. We too are empowered with the strong power of the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. When we open our hearts fully to understand and interpret the Scriptures as the disciples were made to understand on the way to Emmaus then we shall experience the Risen Christ in a mind blowing way like no other. We will taste Heaven here itself and start getting attired to meet God face to face where our hearts will be surged with a love so great for Him. This experience can also be sought each time we eat the Body and drink the Blood of Christ to assimilate Him into our souls to nourish us for eternal life starting from earth itself. This is the most fulfilling meal in this world!
I once came across a lovely article which read that maybe someone drinks their coffee daily from a mug you presented them because it reminds them of you and that thought gives them great joy. Maybe someone wears a particular dress often because you complimented them when they wore it the first time. Maybe someone likes a specific song because it is your favorite song as well. Maybe someone reads a book umpteen times because you have written it.
Well said!! We can never begin to understand how, where, what and when we leave a beautiful impression in the minds and hearts of others. Hence it is important that we make time daily to offer a word of hope, a compliment to boost and leave a remembrance of ourselves in others.
As we go through life, we should scan the joys that moments gave us and not be too sad about the moments missed because God will always give us a chance to catch up on those lost moments and turn these too into happy and treasured ones. There will be days with one extreme joyful remembrance, another day with a new special moment and so on. As Time goes by the days will keep gathering beautiful memorable impressions to make Life such a wonderful journey to abide through.
Jesus is our true joy! When we are happy it is because Jesus the joy dwells in us. He leads each joy into our life. He is present in every happiness we go through. He lives in our soul. It is the soul which goes through tremendous exaltation in such moments.
In fact it is all about the soul! The heart lives inside the soul and is totally encompassed by it. They are both transparent to each other. There are times when the connectivity between souls is so great and all this because of the highest form of love that resides in the soul. One soul is drawn towards another soul by a magnetic link which can win over both Time and Waiting.
What a wonderful image to see one soul patiently waiting for the other! It is all because of the belonging and closeness factor that exists between them.
God too draws the love in our soul in a gravitational pull up to Him and sends His own love down back to us, the soul being a medium that then feeds the heart on this earth though the soul will continue to live in the aftermath of life.
We see that when love abounds between two people, their consent and free will to give themselves to each other is the deciding factor of their union unto the other where the Holy Spirit is strongly poured because where there is Love, the Trinity is definitely there. This soulful union between them is the truest in every sense of the word and gives them full right to all other type of unions.
In the same manner, God has given us all a free will which we have to use to believe in Him, know that we belong back to Him and love Him for creating us, dying for us and keeping the promise of the Resurrection reserved for us in Heaven. Our souls have to burn with a love so great for Him that our soul becomes His soul. To achieve this highest state of ecstasy, we have to be One with Him at any given time.
When we are attentive to His Word and place our intercessions in the beautiful hands of His Mother Mary who is forever interceding for us, we can climb to this highest heaven with so much ease.
Have we ever given much thought to the Risen Body that we too are going to possess once the mortal life is given up? The same Body that Jesus appeared in after His Resurrection to his disciples. A body so glorious and visible that we should keep our Faith alive and going till the day our soul adorns this Risen appearance.
Faith is to know for sure that the Risen Lord is at our side always, he makes us so strong and fearless that we need not fear anything in this life and know we can safely and joyfully transcend into the next life because He is holding our hands at every moment.
As the Easter season progresses, let us delight in the wonderful mysteries that is awaiting us all at the end of Time.
