Earth, Wind, & Fire
We have had an incredible year thus far at Unity of Sedona and, as we prepared to begin the 2nd quarter of the year, we drew a close to the 1st quarter of 2013 with an amazing Easter Holiday service. At the Easter service, attendees enjoyed some slight alterations to the flow of our service and joined in community song. We also all experienced a powerful group prayer mantra–focused on holding the Christ Presence–before sharing the spiritual message, which everyone seemed to enjoy.
In the earlier of our two morning services, the energy was so high it drew many of us to tears. Personally I noticed it first when we all sang “Imagine” as our opening song. I actually had to leave the room to not become overwhelmed with emotion–as I did after all have a service to conduct. But then, in the middle of the morning talk, there was a strong Spiritual Presence felt by many of us, which then stirred even more intense emotions. The third wave came during the morning talk, when so many inspired comments synchronized with the many deep emotions of the attendees–some of which came from the loss of loved ones as recent as just hours before the service.
Then, to look upon the audience members who were processing so deeply, followed by the recognition of some recent challenges in my own life with an ailing daughter…well that was it…I couldn’t hold back the tears. So…I let them flow a little.
Of course many of our audience members were very supportive of my personal moment. Nevertheless I couldn’t help but to apologize because although there is a part of me that teaches how beautiful and natural it is for us to allow such healing moments to rise up for us, I also take my role as a teacher very seriously and thus wrestled with feeling poorly about tearing up.
The reason is because I feel that I have a responsibility to the attendees–some of which are guests and do not know us. Therefore I feel an obligation to hold a certain presence for them, as you might imagine how odd and confusing it might be for a visitor to arrive and find everyone in some sort of emotional process. NO…I am not encouraging the restraint of emotions for myself or anyone else…I am merely sharing how torn I felt in that moment between maintaining an appropriate role for some versus allowing the human frailties to arise and be processed for myself and others.
Of course all of this was perfect on so many levels…after all, we had been discussing the deeper significance of Easter and how this Holiday represents each of us needing to go through our personal tests (crucifixions) so that we can rise (resurrect) and move upward in consciousness (ascend) to a whole new level of being the living Christ.
Another one of the primary messages of Easter is to remember to be there for each other during times of persecution and/or loss. So, for last Sunday and for Easter and for every day of our lives, we are called to use the tests of life as a means to a greater awakening but also to become better people who make ourselves available to each other–especially in times of need. So thank you for being there for me and for all of us whom you have helped (in any way) at Unity of Sedona.
Love & Light, Michael Mirdad
