Easter

24 Apr

It’s early Easter morning and i’m going to have my own sunrise services soon.  i have a long tradition of not going to church on Easter or Christmas.  i go “religiously” the rest of the year, and i figure i save room for the Easter-Christmas Catholics on those days.  

It’s been explained to me before that this is not the right attitude, but i still do it.  i was one of those Easter-Christmas Catholics for a long time, and i know they appreciate the extra seat. 

So i’ll do my own spiritual ceremony at sunrise.

It feels like a day for resolutions.  Not in a “you’ve done this wrong, you need to do better,” kind of way so much as a “looking inside myself for what i need,” kind of way.

And when i can find that space, that deep-inside-myself space, then i feel the power of who i am.  Like i could wear robes and dance around a fire at night, or even a Maypole by day.  Feeling the power of the goddess inside me.


We are all wanderers on this earth.
Our hearts are full of wonder, and our souls are deep with dreams.
— Gypsy proverb

    I like your description of resolutions. Sounds much better than the new years’ variety.

    Happy Easter 🙂

      @K,

      I know, it’s always a pleasant shock to me to realize that resolutions can be things to make me feel good!

      Happy Easter!

    Happy Easter aisha, loved the proverb…..as I typed ‘proverb” I realised it is pro….verb….”for….action.
    Very appropriate. Have a great day.

    Beautiful.

    The imagery, the thought of You greeting the new day, as an open supplicant to …whatever may arrive…

    simply, as you are, beautiful.
