Its a term that I use to take in pride of my catholic background, but today I have my own thoughts to this day. I am at the road intersection in life where everything hampers on one thing – my spirit is looking for something more tangible than faith alone. I have faith in everything, that has not died; its the thing that tangible – the piece between suffering, sickness and the need for peace that I crave more. Peace is a thing that holds an understanding in others and their cultures.
Today is a day that most of the western religions celebrate the death of one man who saved us all from sins. It may be the faith of my background that has an in-depth grounding in understanding each culture who sues for peace but its a heart trenching to follow everything on the news and see more disasters than the act of God or natures fury puts to us to test us in the preserving of our world. How can one man change a world 2013 years ago, when we have not change since then – war, famine, and sins still strive as it was. Are we so gullible to understand that its our life that will end the world we live in. Are we ready for what’s to come.
See what I mean – the crossroads I’m at is just the beginning of something more greater even though, I’m know not where I’m going. Its seems every year at this time I take stock of the values and faith I have grown up with and think why should one man suffer for all when we can all share the responsibility. I still believe that something needs to be done today. Have we learned from the past or have we not grown to understand the concept of what this man did for us.
Okay I sound like a religious fanatic, in some sense I am but I hate to say this but by the words of John Lennon “Give peace a chance” still signifies that some people still hold to something more than the self. Heavy Metal some say is the devil’s music and I cannot agree with any of those people. For instance, (I only am into some heavy metal bands and songs.) take Iron Maiden is what I call music with an underlying theme of good verses evil – I found it a warning to the epic fight against evil. Manowar is my favorite band of the late 80’s (which I only started following), and the reason why I like them is because they bring an epic of fantasy of sword and sorcery adventure in music form – from a writer point of view – excellent material for writing epic fantasy. What has this got to do with today? Well evil sins plague our minds still but we go through life knowing evil does not happen by it self – man do evil things.
Maybe I’m just in the right/wrong mood to let my thoughts get the better of me and then think a problem shared… Well you know what I mean… anyway its time to celebrate a man’s death for our salvation. I cannot at the moment. Like I said above, I’m at the crossroads of a decision which needs an satisfying outcome.
As of today and until the next time I’ll post again, I hope everyone has a very good day on Easter Sunday. Oh, before I forget, Easter signifies that the resurrection of Jesus, which I came to think of the Easter egg is. An egg to me signifies new life and thus that is what Easter means to me.
Happy Easter and hope everyone of you, have a safe one.
