Today is a Good Friday to hope for Easter Miracle. Actually it is the perfect Good Friday to hope for an Easter blessing.
Over the time we have called Good Friday “good,” even if is such a dark event commemorating a day of suffering and death of Jesus Christ. We can do the same now. We can keep faith on a Good Friday that doesn’t feel so good.
One way to do this is for us all to include in our prayers that this Easter energy be directed to heal everything that the world needs right now.
Today is Good Friday. And we can navigate uncertainty with courage.
Courage is an interesting emotion. It does not denies fear. Actually courage invites fear in, in order to accepts it and to manage not to be afraid of fear itself.
It take courage to have faith in times when so many people have lost faith.
Many positive people has gone silent in the past week. It feels like they are shocked by what is going on. Where is the power of positive thinking? Where is the power of the law of attraction? How can be vibrate at the level of joy in these challenging times?
In life there will always be a choice to make. I remember reading in a book “you always have a choice over your thoughts and feelings”. The book was inviting me to use this choice. But in these times I wonder if this choice has value anymore. Do thoughts and emotions matter anymore in the current state of the world?
Where is the power of healers, of light workers? Why can’t they just heal the world and make things good again?
But have you wondered what is the deeper meaning of all this? Have you thought about your soul lately?
It seems to me like we are giving to much importance on the body these days. We forgot about the importance of the soul. But here it is, the Good Friday has come. A Good Friday to think about your spirit.
It seems to me that we are invited to think positive only if it solves the current situation. It feels like positive emotions are good only if they solve the humanity crisis in which we currently are. Beauty has lost its meaning and value. What is beautiful today? Almost nothing. Or day by day the beauty decreases… until all the beauty of the world will disappear.
I don’t like this way of negative thinking. And I think you don’t like it either. This is one strong reason to choose positive thinking. Someone said “Choose to be optimistic, it feels better”. That someone is Dalai Lama XIV.
Optimism lost so much power over the coronavirus, COVID-19 that has now spread to a number of countries. Why?
People expect that optimism, positive thinking, positive words, positive feelings and emotions solve problems and situations. This is the basis of their choice to choose optimism or not. But Dalai Lama kept it simple, he said choose optimism because it feels better.
And what a better good day for choosing optimism than the Good Friday. Like always, Today is a good day to start.
You might need to read an inspiring story to give you a reset. We are inspired by other people so many times. And this is good. I have found this amazing story on Forbes that will give you all the power you need to choose optimism Keeping Faith On A Good Friday That Doesn’t Feel So Good.
Also, you might need to paint some eggs for the Easter that is coming. And you might want to paint some good Easter words on those eggs. I actually advise you to paint kind and motivating words on the Easter eggs this year. Get inspired from two of our amazing vocabulary lists:
“Good Friday” comes from the obsolete sense “pious, holy” of the word “good”. In Old English, the day was called “Long Friday”, and this term was adopted from Old English and is still used in Scandinavian languages and Finnish.
On Good Friday we remember that Jesus willingly suffered and died by crucifixion as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. It is followed by Easter, the glorious celebration of the day Jesus was raised from the dead, proving his victory over sin and death and pointing ahead to a future resurrection for all who are united to him by faith.
What is Faith?
The one responsible for giving an answer to this question is you.
It is the same responsibility as you needing to give yourself the answer to the question Who am I? Someone was saying that it’s strange to ask another person the question Who am I? Because the person you are asking might be a flight attendant that could yell in the entire aeroport: Does someone know who this person is, because he doesn’t know who he is.
But I can give you a little help in discovering what faith is.
According to the dictionary faith is a belief in God or in a set of religious doctrines. You might say that you do not believe in God. And this is ok, it’s your choice. Also according to the dictionary faith is the confidence or unquestioning belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person, idea or thing.
Therefore the big question What is Faith gets split into questions like: What are your values? What is your deep truth? What are you confident about? What do you believe in?
Answering this questions will anchor you in a deeper meaning of life, a deeper truth where your soul resides.
Faith is Trust, Belief, Confidence, Assurance, Reliance and it’s opposite to Uncertainty, Doubt, Distrust.
Have faith. Stay optimistic. Think positive. Appreciate. Be grateful. Smile. These are not meaningful affirmations. These are powerful affirmation. Give them a deeper meaning. Connect them with your soul.
And remember to paint some eggs with good words!
