In year 2020 the Easter celebration will fall on 12th April. Easter, and all the related holidays, is a movable feast, as it doesn’t fall on a fixed date in the actual calendar, based on the cycle of the Sun. Its date is offset from the date of Passover and calculated on a lunisolar calendar, which is similar to the Hebrew calendar.
During the First Council of Nicaea, in year 325, it was established that the determination of the date of this feast had to be independent of the Jewish calendar, and that there should have been a worldwide uniformity of the celebration, but without giving any detail for the computation, which, in time, created a generous number of disputes.
Now it is officially stated that it’s going to be the first Sunday after the Ecclesiastical Full Moon, which every year falls on or soonest after 21st March, at the time of the Paschal Full Moon. An Ecclesiastical Full Moon is officially the 14th day of the ecclesiastical lunar month in an Ecclesiastical Lunar Calendar, which spans the year with lunar months of 30 and 29 days, according to the observed phases of the Moon, and which may not always coincide with the actual full Moon. The name “Paschal” is derived from “Pascha”, a transliteration of the Aramaic word meaning Passover.
In the American Indian tradition, it is called the Pink Moon, which signifies rebirth and renewal, because, after a long winter, the resurgence of the colour pink is a revitalising dose of intense awakening and optimism after a few months of hibernation.
According to renowned spiritualist advisor Cherokee Billie, the Pink Moon “brings the stability and security to crystallise recent changes and make them permanent improvements”.
In the language of colour, pink relates to total acceptance, unconditional love, caring, being in a good space, compassion; it refers to the concept of grounding, the acceptance of being in the body; and it is considered a dispeller of fear as, “Love is letting go of fear” because, according to the ancient wisdom teachings, Love and fear cannot exist in the same space.
Master Jesus, resurrected on Easter day, talked about love and the importance of loving God, the Father of everything there is, the Creator, and the Source.
In his teachings Master Jesus underlined that there are two greatest commandments humanity should follow:
- “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind” (Matthew 22:36; Deuteronomy 6:5);
- And, “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39; Leviticus 19:18).
He said, “On these two commandments hang all the law and prophets” (Matthew 22:40), meaning that these two are the most powerful guidelines in order to align to the universal Law.
The first one is about the acceptance of Life, as God manifests it; the second one is about learning to understand that those in front of us are our brothers, supporting us in awakening to our true nature by being the manifestation of what we need to face and an instrument through which we may learn about our inner reactions.
In the Aura-Soma Colour-Care System® the Equilibrium bottle associated to Master Jesus is the Christ Bottle, number 55, clear over red. It is beautiful to see that, if we shake this bottle together, we get the colour pink.
This bottle is related to the facilitation of the process of initiation and transformation of the self. The clear in the top fraction is about putting our attention and focus on the red in the base fraction, which is about the re-connection with the material aspects of life and the grounding process. The two colours shaken together offer us a pink possibility, which is the awakening to the Divine Love.
What creates frustration and anger (red) within us is the difficulty to understand the unfoldment of life as it is; we truly do not understand why things are the way they do. If we go beyond our little self, we may have the possibility to look with different eyes and learn to see the Divine Plan of Existence from a Higher perspective. How could this little mind that we are, in the little world we live in, that is our tiny life, perceive the greatness of the Divine Mind?
Humility of mind is the key to perceive the Divine Greatness. Jesus taught us to sacrifice (make sacred) our little self (personality) in order to receive a direction from another level of being. He gave us a prayer, called Lord’s Prayer when the Apostles asked him for guidance in relation on how to pray. He gave us the prayer of the prayers to remind us that we are all One and that everything in the Universe is interconnected, as Quantum Physics has confirmed.
This prayer is an extraordinary meditation tool. It is about retreating into ourselves, for: “Our Father is within us ‘in Secret,’ our 7th principle, in the ‘inner chamber’ of our Soul perception, because, as Jesus said, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is within us’, not outside.” (Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine 1:280)
It is an invitation to close the door to the physical senses and concentrate on something higher, a silence that exists beyond the sensual perception. It is only in that place that we can truly know the truth about who we are. Resurrection is that awareness, the awareness of the beauty of life as it is; and the best prayer is to be in awe with that beauty, to feel the blessing and the grace of God in the little things.
Each of us has been placed in a unique place and it is only in that place that we can truly become who we are meant to be and take the responsibility of the mission we have been given and that we have chosen on a soul level.
Are you willing to do so?
The Prayer to Our Father
“Oh Thou, from whom the breath of life comes,
who fills all realms of sound, light and vibration.
May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.
Your Heavenly Domain approaches.
Nehwê tzevjânach aikâna d’bwaschmâja af b’arha.
Let Your will come true – in the universe (all that vibrates)
just as on earth (that is material and dense).
Hawvlân lachma d’sûnkanân jaomâna.
Give us wisdom (understanding, assistance) for our daily need,
Waschboklân chaubên wachtahên aikâna
daf chnân schwoken l’chaijabên.
detach the fetters of faults that bind us, (karma)
like we let go the guilt of others.
Wela tachlân l’nesjuna
Let us not be lost in superficial things (materialism, common temptations),
ela patzân min bischa.
but let us be freed from that what keeps us off from our true purpose.
Metol dilachie malkutha wahaila wateschbuchta l’ahlâm almîn.
From You comes the all-working will, the lively strength to act,
the song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age.
Sealed in trust, faith and truth.
(I confirm with my entire being)
[Translated into first century Aramaic]
O Birther! Father- Mother of the Cosmos
Focus your light within us – make it useful.
Create your reign of unity now-
through our fiery hearts and willing hands
Help us love beyond our ideals
and sprout acts of compassion for all creatures.
Animate the earth within us: we then
feel the Wisdom underneath supporting all.
Untangle the knots within
so that we can mend our hearts’ simple ties to each other.
Don’t let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back from our true purpose.
Out of you, the astonishing fire,
Returning light and sound to the cosmos.
Translated by Neil Douglas-Klotz in Prayers of the Cosmos
Our Father-Mother Who art above and within:
Hallowed be Thy Name in twofold Trinity.
In Wisdom, Love and Equity Thy Kingdom come to all.
Thy will be done, As in Heaven so in Earth.
Give us day by day to partake of Thy holy Bread, and the fruit of the living Vine.
As Thou dost forgive us our trespasses, so may we forgive others who trespass against us.
Shew upon us Thy goodness, that to others we may shew the same.
In the hour of temptation, deliver us from evil.
Translated by G.J.R. Ouseley from The Gospel of the Holy Twelve
The ‘Pater Noster’ in Latin:
Pater noster, qui es in cælis:
sanctificétur Nomen Tuum:
advéniat Regnum Tuum:
fiat volúntas Tua,
sicut in cælo, et in terra.
cotidiánum da nobis hódie,
et dimítte nobis débita nostra,
sicut et nos
dimíttimus debitóribus nostris.
et ne nos indúcas in tentatiónem;
sed líbera nos a Malo.
