The veil lifted; the fog cleared; the white noise ceased.
The System revealed itself to be inherently evil; more specifically, purposively opposed to God and Creation. This made good and evil more easily discernible and prompted choices that have become increasingly unavoidable.
For Easter last year I wrote I post in which I explored the significance of the Lazarus story within Fyodor’s Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment. During the writing of that post, the world was a mere month or two into the global coup spawned by the birdemic. In the time that has passed since, the coup has solidified into the global totalitarianism under which we all currently live.
The inspiration behind last year’s Easter post stemmed from the intuition that spiritual rebirth was the only way effective means through which the deadening effects of the totalitarian takeover could be countered.
Actual physical resistance – if it could be raised at all – would only prove meaningful if it originated from a position of resurrection – in other words, many aspects of ourselves have to die in order to create the conditions needed for a rebirth and regeneration of mortal life through spirit.
If things “coming to a point” was indeed the point of 2020, then the point of anything afterwards must involve resurrecting from the point of 2020.
This must involve some semblance of death – the ability to put down any and all false assumptions, beliefs, habits, preoccupations, actions and thoughts we harbor.
It must also involve deep repentance of any and all false assumptions, beliefs, habits, preoccupations, actions, and thoughts we are unable to put down.
Without this, we cannot hope to emerge reborn and revitalized; we cannot hope to ever really create or do or think from a genuinely creative perspective.
The 2020 point was mostly about the external revealing itself to us and the world; the resurrection point of 2021 must be about the internal revealing itself to us and the world against the backdrop of the external revelations of things having come to a point.
And the bulk of this inner revealing must involve repentance and belief – amazing amounts of repentance and belief. Within this framework, repentance provides the necessary freedom from, while belief provides the crucial freedom for.
Resurrection from the point of 2020 must involve a conscious shift in thinking leading to a conscious shift in being - a conscious shift in thinking that exists outside of and is not dependent on the System.
Without this inner transformation, without this focus on repentance and belief, we will not be able to free ourselves from the increasingly deadening world of the System the totalitarians have imposed upon us. We will not be able to write the new story resurrection inspires. As I noted last Easter:
The crucifixion and resurrection of Christ is the beginning of that new story; of that gradual renewal and regeneration of man. But the renewal and regeneration can only occur if we believe in Jesus; if we believe on Jesus; if we wholeheartedly believe in the promise He demonstrated and offers to us all.
If we believe in Christ and the Resurrection, we will pass from one world into another and begin our initiation into a new unknown life. If we refuse to believe in Christ, if we knowingly and willfully turn our backs on the promise Christ offers, we will remain trapped in the nightmare world of theory; a world in which we cannot become Creators but will diminished into being nothing but destroyers.
