A different take on Easter - Part 1
Easter, for Christians, is the celebration of the crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Good Friday represents the death of Christ. Perhaps we could apply the experience to our personal lives creating change from the inside out.
Once we've consciously made a decision to encourage change in our hearts and banish old ways, it's like sowing seed into the ground. The hard shell of the seed is like negative thoughts and unproductive habits and attitudes which conceal new life within. As the seed is sown in fertile soil, hidden from visible display, it goes through the transformation process where old habits, the hard shell, breaks opens.
As you water the newly sown seeds with your positive words of turning over a new leaf and speaking your new life, the nurturing process for this new life to emerge, begins.
Make the decision today to begin the changing process of burying the old way of thinking allowing it to open and fall off in nutrient-enriched soil.
