Easter is a time of Rebirth, and is being celebrated through out many countries and cultures in the world, and so we’ll explore this in this Post.
Rebirth is a concept that many different cultures and religions recognise. It simply means an occasion when someone goes through a profound and spiritual change. In some religions, this takes the form of physical rebirth when someone dies and then is reincarnated. In some forms of Christianity it means re-finding a person’s Faith within their religion and relationship with God.
How does this relate with Easter?
Well, according to most Christians, Christ died, was buried, and on Easter Day, was brought back to life. This is another concept related to Rebirth.
Much of the decor and tradition includes symbols of Rebirth. There are chocolate eggs, which are a sign of new life, and rabbits, who breed rather abundantly, and chickens and the like. These are all tied into the concept of New Life.
How can this, regardless of religion, help an individual?
Sometimes, re-examining life and asking where it is all leading, is a good starting point in causing a Rebirth in one’s own experience. Usually, this is done around New Year’s, when resolutions are put into place and good intentions abound.
But, Easter, with its theme of Rebirth, is another occasion when it is suitable to sit down with oneself and work out how many of these resolutions are being put into practice. How successfully have these been implemented? Do these need to be re-adjusted, tweaked, or completely scrapped?
In 2018, it is at the beginning of April that Easter has been celebrated. We’re only three months into the year. This means that it is especially timely to follow through and look at where it’s all heading.
There are another nine months of the year ahead. The time now can be put to good use, ensuring that these months are filled with achievable goals, milestones reached, and all round success for the resolutions that have been worked on.
This week’s assignment, is to find some quiet time, some quiet space, and some quiet going within, to work out where you can experience a Rebirth of sorts, and work out how close you are to achieving all your hopes and resolutions this year.
