"My burden is light"

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me ... For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." So spake Christ Jesus. Upon him was laid a stupendous burden, that of proving the utter unreality of evil! And yet he could say, "My burden is light." Well for us that we can learn of him who in his brief experience proved mortality a myth.

What was it that enabled Christ Jesus to overcome all mortal beliefs, even the so-called law that man must die? What enabled him in the midst of hating, doubting thoughts to heal the sick, destroy imperfection, and raise the dead? What enabled him, though met by scorn, greed, unreceptivity, ingratitude, and treachery, to speak of his joy and peace? What enabled him in the hour of crucifixion, surrounded by hate and brutality, to say, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do," and to provide for his mother, directing that John take her under his care?
