Thoughts About Easter Sunday
Easter Sunday is the celebration of Christ’s resurrection. To me, Easter is not a time to dwell on death, but the sunrise of a new life. Christians use this day to celebrate the new life they will enjoy after death, when they will unite with God in heaven.
Easter can also serve, for all mankind, as a day of contemplation. One in which we ponder a new life that is available to each of us here on earth. This is the life where love comes first. Daily, we can renew that life by transforming the conventional way we interact with the world and those that we encounter. Easter Sunday can be used as the day that we initiate a self-transformation.
Christ demonstrated His transcendence from a worldly self to the Divine. By the resurrection, He showed us we too could transform our lives. Each day we may initiate this transformation and in doing so experience our individual resurrection. We begin this transformation by first of all awakening and recognizing that beyond the misery and hardships that we put upon our self, a peaceful and loving life is possible. We need only allow ourselves to experience our resurrection. We do not have to experience physical death in order to live in the Light. Heaven radiates from within. Heaven is not a destiny rather it is a state of consciousness.
Each and every day represents an opportunity to experience the Light. God is present within each of us, in every moment. When we unite with Him, we experience happiness. When we don’t, we get stuck. Easter Sunday represents the bridge leading from the cravings and adversities that taunt at us, to self-fulfillment and inner-peace. It represents transforming a life of uneasiness to one of calmness, clarity and assurance. It represents our ascension into a consciousness that is far beyond what we experience in our limited worldly reality. It represents a time of forgiveness, compassion, sensitivity and good will. Easter Sunday can be viewed as the Gateway to inner-peace and unceasing love.

If Easter says anything to us today, it says this: You can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there. You can nail it to a cross, wrap it in winding sheets and shut it up in a tomb, but it will rise!
~ Clarence W. Hall
Easter is not a passport to another world; it is a quality of perception for this one.
