April 7th - Good Friday...
Just listened to Cardinal Dolan’s homily for Good Friday. His message, Jesus took on all that was bad, so we could have what is good.
How often do I really appreciate this day, am I doing so right now even. As Cardinal suggested, so many contradictions to manage through. Perhaps a simplified way to look at it, contrasts, a coin has two ‘different’ sides. This message continues to show up for me, is it sticking?
I feel like I am being given one ‘clue’ after another on my self treasure hunt – I select Wholeness as my word of the year… I am introduced to the work of Abraham Hicks… My energy healer and I discuss the necessity of step forward/step back… She also teaches me about a split soul… Cardinal chooses a message from the passion to be its paradoxes.
When describing myself, I see balance – d. Other than enjoying spontaneity, my personality, my life has a lot of balancing the scales. I have had my fair share of ‘challenges’ and ‘successes’, which I do attribute to an understanding and experience of both the good and bad. My response seems to be a return to what lies, mostly at peace, of what is in between. Or another visual – the ballerina in pointe, the cheerleader on the top of the pyramid – of my youth. As an adult, the juggling of multiple roles. It is also a testimonial to my faith, which I have always considered strong.
A battle of extremes ends peacefully in between.
Hmmm, Bad Friday…day 247!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
