EASTER SERVICES
page 111


   We must lay aside material consciousness, and then
we can perceive Truth, and say with Mary, "Rabboni!"
- Master!
   In 1866, when God revealed to me this risen Christ,
this Life that knows no death, that saith, "Because he

lives, I live," I awoke from the dream of Spirit in the
flesh so far as to take the side of Spirit, and strive to cease
my warfare.
   When, through this consciousness, I was delivered from
the dark shadow and portal of death, my friends were
frightened at beholding me restored to health.
   A dear old lady asked me, "How is it that you are
restored to us?  Has Christ come again on earth?"
   "Christ never left," I replied; "Christ is Truth, and
Truth is always here, - the impersonal Saviour."
   Then another person, more material, met me, and I
said, in the words of my Master, "Touch me not."  I
shuddered at her material approach; then my heart went
out to God, and I found the open door from this sepulchre
of matter.
   I love the Easter service:  it speaks to me of Life, and
not of death.
   Let us do our work; then we shall have part in his
resurrection.
