Originally built by the mother of Emperor Constantine in 330 A.D., the Church of the Holy Sepulcher commemorates the hill of crucifixion and the tomb of Christ's burial.
Place of Crucifixion
Inside the church is a rocky outcropping which is the traditional place where the cross was placed. Archaeological excavations have demonstrated that this site was outside the city but close to one of its gates and thus would have been a good location for a crucifixion. Today this chapel is controlled by the Greek Orthodox Church.
The Edicule (Christ's Tomb)
This structure preserves the location of Christ's tomb. Though the cave here was carved away by a Muslim ruler 1000 years ago, a clear history remains that this has been the revered location of the tomb. (Reference Google)
“The joy of Jesus will be my strength--it will be in my heart. Every person I meet will see it in my work, my walk, my prayer--in everything." –Mother Teresa
When time stands still, one is the happiest, isn’t it? When man stands still, the heart has opened to Divine, Infinite Love. How can that be? In stillness, the calm that comes from heavenly communion with nature and beyond time’s domain brings Heavenly scents and scenes that come to those who have conquered time. Rush toward the Self that each of you possesses in the stillness beyond Earthly desires of the flesh, and blood, and bones. Let time recede into its own domain and you choose the heavenly scenes of timelessness. Let it be said that those of you, who resonate from the heart, learn to stand on your own two feet through bypassing the desires of the Earth and its environs that keep you on the wheel of karma lifetime after lifetime.
Now the Christ Child is in the wind, in the homes, in the minds and in the hearts of many on Earth at this time of yearly festivities. Let it be known that the Christ Consciousness that Jesus taught you is a goal worthy of each of you pursuing. Be free, my Internet chelas, be free to be free from within the “holy of hollies” that is within you. One need not go to a certain building to find God, be it a humble Himalayan cave or hut or the most magnificent, grand cathedral. Indeed, as you all well know, the grandest cathedral you ever will encounter is within your own heart, your own soul, your own Divinely Inspired Cathedral of atmic eternity.
When one visits such places as the Church of The Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, pictured above, there is wondrous energy stemming from the great happenings that manifested there. Also at the Church of The Holy Sepulchre, there are sacred, high levels of energy laid down by countless numbers of people praying and venerating the life of Christ Jesus that merge with one’s own energy to magnify the possibility of transformation in humankind. Go to these sacred places and accept the love that is there. And be aware that you must connect this Divine energy with your own Atmic Self energy to manifest the Divine right of each human to receive the blessing from the birthright of one such as the Christ. Be it forevermore known that you are Divine, even as the Christ taught: “"Even greater things than I have done, you shall do.” Accept and embrace this teaching and know that you, too, are Divine, even as the Christ was and is Divine. What greater thing than that is there for you to realize?
