This Easter has been a strange one. For all of us, it is one in quarantine from our loved ones that we would normally be traveling to see and spend time with in person. For me, there is another layer of it being my 33rd birthday. April 12th has never fallen on Easter before in my lifetime and it seems like there is always a connection that we can’t completely understand when the world falls into place a certain way. I have decided to take notice.
I don’t feel sad. I thought I might, since my normal routine is to have my closest friends over to cheers my birth and share it with me. I have made my Zoom time with them starting in only a few minutes and I can’t wait to see their smiling faces on my computer screen. After my friend date, I am Zooming with my family and attempting to play a card game with them as is tradition when we gather. It could be a disaster, but we will be together and laugh through the hiccups.
“Together in spirit.” Such a fitting saying now. Even when we don’t get the chance to hug and touch our loved ones, their spirit appears in our living rooms with Zoom, Facebook and Skype. Like magic, their laughter fills my home and I feel a little bit better when they inhabit the material space around me.
Let us use this time as a Rebirth. To reconnect with what is important. Hold up in your cave, but look inside and investigate your inner world with this forced hermitage. Be silent, pray, meditate, cry, laugh, be content in your solitude. The outside world has been stripped away and we need to remember that we are complete still. Looking elsewhere for wholeness is pointless. You are all you need. Stretch your mind and touch the divine that is your inner soul, your eternal light. It is waiting for you.
Love & Light!
