April brings with it the traditional Easter holiday, falling on April Fool’s Day this year! No foolin’….this is the perfect time to renew, refresh and resurrect yourself! As Ernest Holmes says, “for every death there is a resurrection.” He adds that “This is the way of life. This is the way of evolution.” I love the metaphor and power of this time of year. It is the perfect time for us to release with love anything that is unlike us as God. This is how we achieve the death that leads to resurrection. For the new to be born, the old must be relinquished.
Once we release the old and embrace the new, the opportunity for us to become enlightened is even greater, by realizing we are a part of that vast Oneness that is the power and strength and unconditional love of God.
In this week we get to examine just how much faith, doubt, confidence, fear, hope and despair we have in our life. Faith, confidence and hope allow us to feel younger, to view the world with that childlike wonder that opens us up to joy. Doubt, fear and despair will keep us mired in old non-productive ways of thinking that simply lead to more of the same.
I hope you will join us for deep and insightful discussions, called Monday Night Musings, every Monday night at 6 PM at A-to-Zen in Carson City.
Sending love, light and laughter your way, Rev. Karen
