Resurrection

Resurrection is the act of restoring a dead person to life.
 
I thought of this word one morning when my attention had been pulled away from myself as a spiritual being to being focused on things happening in the material world. All my attention went to the material emergency and I forgot myself as a spirit. I was very miserable. I felt hopeless.
 
And then I realized that in this material emergency, I had abandoned everything I usually do as a spirit. My world had become material only.
 
And when I began to come "alive" and remember what I am, I began to feel alive again.
 
In that moment, I realized that what we are doing is bring life back to life. Without awareness of spirit and intentional action of spirit, industrialization is "dead." By restoring spirit to daily living, we are bringing human life "back to life."
 
Every day we can resurrect ourselves and the world by being more alive as the spiritual beings we are and incorporating spirit in our daily lives.
 
n. The act of restoring a dead person, for example, to life.
n. The condition of having been restored to life.
