THE GREATER MEANING OF EASTER/EOSTRE




    It doesn't matter whether you celebrate Easter or not this weekend; the main thing is to contemplate its symbols in your own life. The symbols of the rabbit and the egg both predate the Christian Easter and come from pagan origins. They hare and the egg represent fertility and to some cultures the egg also symbolized newness of life. Both of these symbols can also be seen in the story of Jesus Christ: he rose from the dead and offers humanity a chance at new life or new beginning in Spirit. Either way you look at it, the message is pretty much the same. What fertile new dreams are telling you to give them birth right now? What new path or new beginning is in front of you at this moment; or perhaps you would like to make a new start in some area of your life. These are the kinds of things that we should think about at this time of year. And then, like the earth in spring, we should all reach for the light and strive for newness of life.
