Good Friday: A Time to Release Ego and Embrace Love

Hello my dear friends, it is an honor to speak with you today about the significance of Good Friday. As we approach this holy day, I invite you to join me in reflecting on the message of Jesus and the transformational power of the cross.

Two of my favourate teachers from my thirty five year journey upon his earth has lead me to approach this good Friday in a very different way.

Firstly, Wayne Dyer… one of my dearest teachers and spiritual brothers who, though I never met him in person, I believe I could tell you his heart. If he were writing this reflection, I think he would write it something like this…

Good Friday

Good Friday is a day of remembrance and reflection.

It is a day when we are called to release our ego and embrace the power of love. The message of Jesus, as I understand it, is one of love, compassion, and forgiveness. It is a message that calls us to transcend our own limitations and connect with the divine spark within us all.

At the heart of Jesus’ message is the idea of selflessness. He taught that we must be willing to put aside our own needs and desires in order to serve others. He demonstrated this selflessness in the ultimate way, by sacrificing his own life for the sake of others.

On Good Friday, we remember this sacrifice, and we reflect on the meaning of the cross. The cross represents the ultimate act of selflessness, and it reminds us of the power of love to overcome even the most daunting challenges.

The message of Jesus is one that resonates deeply with me, because it speaks to the fundamental truth of our human existence. We are all interconnected, and our actions have a ripple effect that can extend far beyond our own lives. When we act with love and compassion, we create positive energy that can transform the world around us.

On Good Friday,

We are called to release our ego and embrace this power of love. Called to set aside our own desires and focus on serving others. Called to forgive those who have wronged us, and to seek forgiveness from those we have wronged. Urged to transcend our own limitations and connect with the divine spark within us all.

The message of Jesus is not one that is limited to any particular religion or faith tradition. It is a universal message that speaks to the fundamental truth of our humanity. We are all capable of love, compassion, and selflessness. We all have the potential to make a positive impact on the world around us.

As we reflect on the meaning of the cross on this Good Friday, I invite you to join me in embracing the power of love. My hope is that we release our ego and connect with the divine spark within us all. Let us serve others with selflessness and compassion. Let us forgive those who have wronged us, and seek forgiveness from those we have wronged.

In doing so, we can create positive energy that can transform our lives and the world around us. We can tap into the power of love to overcome even the most daunting challenges. We can transcend our own limitations and connect with something greater than ourselves.

As I close, I leave you with a quote from the great Christian mystic Meister Eckhart, who said, “We are all meant to be mothers of God…for God is always needing to be born.” Let us embrace the power of love on this Good Friday, and allow ourselves to be conduits for the divine energy that flows through us all. May God bless you all.

If my dear friend and teacher Brennan Manning was writing this, he may have written it as such:

Good Friday: A Day to Embrace the Cross

My dear friends, it is a privilege and an honor to share about the significance of Good Friday. As we approach this holy day, remember that it is not merely a day off from work or a time to indulge in a feast. It is a day that we, as Christians, must embrace the cross of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Good Friday is a day of mourning, a day of repentance, and a day of gratitude. It is a day to remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for us, and to acknowledge the debt that we owe to him. On this day, we must look upon the cross, and allow ourselves to be moved by the depth of God’s love for us.

The cross is a symbol of pain and suffering,

but it is also a symbol of hope and redemption. It is through the cross that we are saved, and it is through the cross that we are given the promise of eternal life. As Christians, we are called to carry our own crosses and follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

When we look at the cross, we are reminded of the incredible love that God has for us. We are reminded that he was willing to send his only Son to die for us, so that we might be saved. This act of love is the ultimate example of selflessness, and it is something that we must strive to emulate in our own lives.

On Good Friday, we are also reminded of the depth of our sinfulness. It is through our sin that Jesus was crucified, and it is through our sin that we continue to separate ourselves from God. We must acknowledge our sinfulness, and seek forgiveness from God. We must also seek to make amends for the harm that our sins have caused others.

Finally, on Good Friday,

Unitally must express our gratitude to God for the sacrifice that he has made for us. We must give thanks for the gift of salvation, and for the promise of eternal life. We must also express our gratitude to Jesus for willingly laying down his life for us.

As we approach this holy day, let us remember the words of Saint Paul, who said, “May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Galatians 6:14) Let us embrace the cross, and allow it to transform our lives.

Let us also remember the words of Jesus, who said, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” (Matthew 16:24) We must be willing to deny ourselves, and to take up our own crosses, in order to follow Jesus.

In closing, my dear friends,

I urge you to take time on Good Friday to reflect on the meaning of the cross. Let us embrace the pain and suffering that it represents. Also Let us embrace the hope and redemption that it offers. Acknowledge our sinfulness, and seek forgiveness and reconciliation with God. Let us express our gratitude to God for the gift of salvation, to Jesus for his sacrifice on our behalf.

May God bless you, and may you have a blessed Good Friday.

If I were writing the conclusion to this teaching, I believe in this moment that I would say… It is true. All that was written about Jesus and more is true. Even if it isn’t, his message is still a wonderful aim in life.

Either way, remember today that in the end nothing truly matters, except everything which does matter.
