Today's reflection is on...
Today is Friday, the 39th day in Lent.
This is entry number 45 in this series.
Today we look at Crucifixion...
Once and for all let us turn the tables on negative thoughts, inefficient choices, and behaviors and habits that are always trying to bring us down every time we seem to rise above them to a new way of thinking and being.
Let this be the crucifixion day for those old negative error thoughts that were planning to crucify us as we make this journey upward, rising higher and higher. Old inefficient patterns and habits and limiting beliefs have been lurking in the shadows always wanting to draw us backward into the darkness of their false sense of comfort.
Once and for all we turn, take back our power and hang those thoughts on the cross it prepared for us wanting to crucify the indwelling Light and Love we have begun to live from. Today choose to die to the old way that has not served you, crucify the darkness and prepare for your own resurrection, choosing to live in every thought, word and action, rooted and grounded in Love, Light and Truth.
Charles Fillmore stated this beautifully in his classic work “Keep a True Lent,” he said, “That which died on the Cross when Jesus was crucified was the personality; the Christ resurrects itself from the very depths of the subconsciousness, and error is hanged on the gallows it prepared for the doing away of the newborn spiritual ego.”
Pray and Affirm: I am grateful for the divine flow of wisdom, inspiration and guidance that ceaselessly leads me to greater good, to abundant blessings and more prosperity in my life. I quiet my mind and listen for Its direction. In the silence I find the answers that show me the way.
– Stephen J. Kosmyna
I affirm: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." - Psalm 23:4
"God's Spirt in me is invincible and indestructible. Thank You, Father, for your spirit in me that gives me victory over death itself." - Charles Fillmore
The Scripture reading that Charles Fillmore suggests for today can be found right here: John 19:1-42
In his classic work Keep a True Lent, Charles Fillmore offers daily words of inspiration to reflect on as we move ourselves towards our own resurrection day and the glorious celebration of Easter Sunday and all the newness of Life that it holds for all of us.
