The Promise of Sunrise April 24, 2011

For Christians, Easter represents a time of renewal and rebirth . . . the resurrection of spirit and life everlasting.

Every sunrise serves the same purpose, and holds out the same promise, as it whispers . . .

A new day is dawning.  Make it your masterpiece.

If we want a life filled with creativity, joy and peace, there is only one place to find that happiness ~ in the here and now.

Living in the past will not produce the tranquility, stillness, and balance we need to live life with passion.  No matter how or where we lost our way, the path is here, now ~ leading us on to the life of our dreams.

When we reclaim a calm, centered way of living that refreshes and restores us, our sense of life balance returns.  We stop looking over our shoulders and allow life to unfold.  We tune out the past and tune in to the present.

Clarity and creativity spring  forth as we reconnect with favorite  hobbies and friends, and clear away activities that don’t serve our vision.

We find joy in being, and open our internal landscape to blessings and opportunities.

We create space for what matters . . . right here, right now.

Inspired, we listen and hear the whisper of sunrise as it greets us each morning . . . encouraging us to make this day our masterpiece.

170px-Alice_par_John_Tenniel_02Easter raises questions:

Why baskets?
Why bunnies?
Why eggs?
Why jelly beans?
Why chocolate?

Except for the last, which has a rather self-evident answer, we came up as empty-handed as a slow-moving near-sighted youngster at an Easter Egg hunt populated by eagle-eyed marathon runners.

If you’re interested, Arvik has shed some light on this ancient mystery:
