By Helen Schucman*

I did not die. In rising up I did

But stay the same. Eternity had come

To claim its own from the embrace of time

and bitter kiss of death. I but came home

After a journey so diminutive

that Heaven never noticed it began 

Nor ended. Unencumbered , changelessly,

the Christ united with the Son of man,

And what belonged to God returned to Him.

Think not the Holy Spirit waits for death

To offer you the gifts God gave to Him,

Or Heaven rests upon a failing breath.


I did not die. Appearances of hate

Enveloped Me. Illusions veiled My eyes

and stopped My heart. Earth's dream closed over Me,

and that was all. The Son of God must rise

Above all dreams of fear. Would God allow

The Son who is like Him to separate

From life that is Himself? His Comforter

Came down to lift Me up within his great

And silent wings. The peace of God unbound

My hands and feet. For who can stop the Heart

Of God Himself, or veil the eyes that watch

His Son in mercy, or make Him depart

From what is but Himself?
