I am not a religious person. I do not read the Bible as an historical document, but rather a source of inspiration. A collection of lessons to be learned about living the best life that you can live.
To me, Easter is not about a dead man rising from the dead, but about celebrating a renewed spirit for life. It's about reflection. It's about acknowleging your mistakes and the mistakes of others. It's about moving past them. Forgive yourself and forgive others. Move past the trangressions that are holding you back. Walk away with your head held high, and do not dwell on the negativity of those around you.
It is no coincidence that Easter falls each year in the beginning of Spring. Both symbolize a rebirth. A reawakening. What will you do this year to cleanse your spirit and move forward?
