When I was a kid, I thought I saw the Easter Bunny, I was in a playground and I believe I saw his big ears just over the hill. It was the week before Easter and little Sandra was so excited for the magic of Easter morning…I probably made up seeing him in my imagination, but he was real to me. I went to school and told my friends about seeing the Easter Bunny and they all laughed at me and made of fun of me.
Looking back from where I am now, I realize I have spent a lifetime afraid of sharing my excitement and my beliefs…afraid of what people might think.
Over 20 years ago a fear of death got me searching for the evidence of the afterlife. I found it in many ways and it gave me peace to live my life.
However I never told anybody, the same girl afraid of being laughed at or made fun of… stayed quiet. Until one day I took a chance and shared and guess what? No one laughed.
Sometimes we humans seem to think we have to see things to believe in them, but is that true?
Can we see invisible radio waves that deliver us music? Can we see the wireless internet signals that connect us right now? Do we need to see God or the Divine Light to know the love and power is real? Today we celebrate that one light that shines through the many lamps of our faiths.
What would life look like if we were free to be who we are, fully self-expressed, without the fear of what people think or being laughed at? What would it be like to say “I love you” and not care if those words are reciprocated. What would it be like to just be yourself, going to bed each night knowing your did your best and said you best.
Just as real as the magic of the Easter Bunny, is the magic that is inside of us and all around us in an invisible world.
My advice is to be open, share your love, and share your truth.
As Neale Donald Walsh says, “Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone.”
You, my friend, may not change the world, but you never know who’s world you WILL change.
So, share your passions and HAPPY EASTER
