Now is the time for us to celebrate Easter!
For Jews this is a re-affirmation of Passover…..
For Christians it’s the promise of Life to come….
For Hindus it’s another proof of reincarnation…
And for all of us it’s a reminder that we can die to the old ways and rise up in sparkling new ways….
For most of us it also means belonging….be that to family, friends, community, business or church.
Belonging and connecting are vital aspects of healthy living……social isolation is a regrettable necessity.
We do it ultimately for the sake of others.
It’s a gift of love….. a short-term sacrifice for a long-term benefit for everyone.
So this Easter make your isolation your sacrifice.
Do it because you love humanity.
Do it willingly….knowing that this too will pass.
Do it knowing that a new Earth will unfold on the other side of our sacrifice…a new way of caring, of sharing, of helping one another, of working constructively together…..
Take this time to undergo your own personal passover…. to die to the old……to let go your hurts, your fears, your grief, your shame, your guilt, your impatience, your intolerance, your hurting ego…..and rest peacefully in your own skin awaiting (and allowing) your own and the world’s rebirth into a more thoughtful, helpful, caring, grateful and inclusive community of infinite souls dancing consciously together in the gardens of Eden we call ‘planet earth’….
