Channel 1 Resources for March 20 – April 16, 2021

Posted on March 20, 2021

April 4 is Easter Sunday, and so we have chosen a contemplation, a reading, and a recording for this period that focus on the meaning of Easter in The Infinite Way.  These selections are sure to support staying tuned to Channel One. 

For Contemplation

From Chapter 4, “Easter: An Experience of Consciousness,” in Living by the Word

“Easter is to be an experience, an experience of resurrection. It is an experience of complete freedom from every human limitation. We prepare for that experience every moment of our life. Just as in planting fruit trees, the goal is to have fruit, so the preparation for the ultimate experience of fruitage is the planting of the seed, the rain, the sunshine, the fertilizer. So with us. Abiding in the word of scripture, letting the word abide in us, consciously renewing our understanding moment by moment, and abiding consciously in truth, we bring forth spiritual fruitage. Letting ourselves be mentally unconscious, we take in the seeds of the carnal mind, and the fruit that we bring forth is carnal. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

“Sowing is an activity of consciousness. We cannot sow without abiding in truth; we cannot sow without an activity of consciousness going on. Therefore, let us be careful that we are not letting the mind be idle, so that it takes in every seed that is blowing around in the air, but let us keep the mind active, abiding in the truth, so that we are sowing to the Spirit; and then on Easter, that is, at a particular day or moment, an experience of resurrection takes place. It may not be on the day called Easter Day. Each one of us has his own Easter Day; each one of us has an actual moment of experience in which he is resurrected, in which the “old man” of us is dead, and there is a three-day period after which I raise up this temple again.”
