Easter cave

April 10, 2004

Good Friday and Easter are reminders, even for non-Christians, of the importance of allowing oneself to venture into the “cave”; into darkness, mystery and the unknown.

Do any of us avail ourselves to this call? Do we allow ourselves to enter into the dark well of our being? Why are we so afraid of this part of nature’s cycle?

To be born requires gestation in the womb; any womb. For adults to be born again, this might require an entrance into Earth’s womb before an exit into newness is possible.

Maybe it just isn’t possible to always be in the light if one truly wants to see.
