Day 33 – Friday Mount of Transfiguration

33rd Day     Friday

(Note from Rev. Toni:   Remember that Charles Fillmore was writing this in the early 1900’s;  take a deep breath as you read this entry.  Open up to the metaphysical meaning of these ideas.  Also note that the 2017 edition uses the same concept.)

Mount of Transfiguration

From Keep A True Lent by Charles Fillmore

Read Matthew 17:1-13.

Transfiguration is always preceded by a change of mind. In transfiguration, ideals are lifted from the material to the spiritual.  Going up into the mountain to pray means an elevation of thought and aspiration from the mortal to the spiritual viewpoint. When the mind is exalted in prayer the rapid radiation of mental energy causes a dazzling light radiation from all parts of the body, and especially the head.  Even our so-called physical body reveals a radiant body, (which Jesus referred to as sitting on the throne of His glory), which interlaces the trillions of cells of the organism and burns brightly. Jesus gave His disciples a glimpse of His radiant body when He was transfigured before them. “His face did shine as the sun, and his garments became white as the light.”  He was very advanced in spiritual consciousness and was developed to a larger degree than anyone else in our race. But we all have that body of light, and its development is in proportion to our spiritual culture. Jesus did not go down to corruption but, by the intensity of His spiritual devotions, transformed every cell into its innate divine light and power. When John was in the spirit of devotion Jesus appeared to him and “his eyes were as a flame of fire; and his feet like unto burnished brass.” Jesus lives today in that body of glorified light in a kingdom that interpenetrates the earth and its environment.  Jesus is my Way-Shower. In His name I affirm: “My mind and body are radiant with the light of Spirit, and I am triumphant, glorious, splendid.”

 

 

From Be Ye Transformed    Lent 2017

Transfiguration

By Rev. Elise Cowan

I radiate from the light of God as the truth of my being.

Transfiguration was a miracle demonstrated by Jesus when he went up the mountain to pray with a few disciples and began radiating light. We, too, have the light of God within us when we turn our mind in prayer to our higher selves.  This Lenten journey let us “be transformed” by changing our mind and shifting attention away from the things of the world, the material things around us, to a spiritual consciousness, a higher state of being.  When we become still and know we are God, we can visualize the light within us radiating from the core of our being. As we feel the light shining, we grow the light to encompass our entire being and beyond. We are transfigured as our light radiates outward, touching and becoming one with the lights of others.
