As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
As it is a commemorative and reflective time, I wondered about the commemorations of the crucifixion of Jesus all over the world. The rituals and re-telling of this actual event, vary from region to region, depending upon cultural customs and the variation of Christianity. But what unites the differences is what the actual commemorations are actually commemorating. But it is also an evocation of feeling, and a time to reflect. We can think that throughout history, how story tellers such as Shakespeare or philosophers such as: Socrates and Plato. They would tell the truths through story, dialogue and performance. Of course the stories were to have an effect upon the listener or the audience, but we have to take the effects a step further, all cases even with the Crucifixion, Resurrection, Easter celebrations and the birth. To think about how the events we witness at present day have an effect at the internal level, because it is the very emotion that propels and guides to continue to restore and maintain biblical stories, or the stories of any faith. We often forget that a physical display is an evocation for the internal - our human being, soul and spirit. When the senses are awakened, we can only begin to summon the desire to keep faith alive - keep belief alive. Because truly the physical commemorations must be aquatic of this. To create a lasting impression within hearts, mind, soul, spirit, and ultimately the body.
