Ascension means to rise up.
In the Christian tradition the Ascension of Christ is mostly celebrated 40 days after His resurrection.
But what interpretation is most relevant to us in modern times? Did Christ rise bodily through the clouds to sit at the right hand of His Father?
Did Christ rise in spirit to be with his Spiritual Father?
What is important is how we practice the ascension in our daily lives.
Choosing to dwell on and act on uplifting thoughts puts us in a spiritual state, and isnít that what we aspire to?
†We have the choice in each moment to act for the highest good of each situation. And what that does is make us feel good in our mind. It brings peace to our mind.
By living a holy life in our mind we ascend mentally, and eventually will do so spontaneously. That is our goal. That is what will make us happy.
Take time on the Ascension feast day to reflect on how you can upgrade your personal choices for the higher good.
Align with the purity of Spirit in communion
With our dear Heavenly Father
As did Christ.
