“I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” (John 12: 32)
Jesus’s ascension certainly drew mankind to follow his light and his message of Truth. His resurrection was an indication to all that he spoke truly about being the son of God, Spirit, Life. But this statement concerns each and every one of us. It is not simply about Jesus cheating death and getting attention and worship for it. It is about the way in which we each go about our lives.
When we lift our thought above earth, when we release our ego to the divine “I,” the one true Mind and Life, we are able to become a healing force in the world. It is not by our commiseration with matter and its constant barrage of limits and lies that we are a help to ourselves and to others. It is by a conscious recognition of who we really are and where we really dwell.
It is that conscientious acceptance of our oneness with God, our heavenly dwelling place, that which is clear and right and good, that we will draw others unto us, have an influence on thought and lives. We need to keep out of the tomb of deathly thinking, to be able to claim that healing perspective that is full of daylight and which breaks the gloom for us and for all. Jesus proved that Life is God–not fearful, not earthbound and doomed. This is our truth as well. So let us be grateful, joyous, buoyant, and bright with this irresistible light!
