THE TRULY HAPPY EASTER
What does Eater really mean? After checking the Wikipedia, we came up with the following definitions, namely:
Easter (from the Hebrew Pessach means passage and the Greek word for that is Πάσχα).
Nevertheless, the word today has acquired the meaning of a religious event, normally considered by the churches connected to this religious tendency.
In Christianity it is the most important festivity. On this date the Christians celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ after he had been crucified (See Good Friday), which might have occurred at this time of the year.
Easter can happen between 22 of March and 25 of April. The term may also refer to the canonical year which lasts for 2 months, from the Easter Sunday to the Pentecosts.
The Pagan Traditions
On Easter, it is common to paint cooked eggs, decorating them with designs and abstract forms. In most part of the countries, it is still a costume to substitute theses eggs by chocolate eggs.
This custom is not even mentioned in the Bible, and it makes Allusion to very ancient pagan rituals.
Ishtar or Astarte is the Goddess of Fertility and Birth in the Angle-Saxon mythology and the Nordic Germanic mythology. In Spring, the hares and the painted eggs and runes were the symbols of fertility and renovation.
The hare (not bunny) was its symbol. Their priestess were said to have the power to predict the future whenever they saw a hare being sacrificed – that is the reason of the phrases “ little bunny what do you bring for me?”. This phrase is a lot catchier than if it were composed with the word bunny, commercially speaking. The real phrase was “Hare of Eostre, what is it you bring for me from your guts?”
Hare of Eostre can be seen in the Full Moonlight, and, therefore, it was naturally associated with the Moon and the Lunar Goddess of Fertility.
The Easter originated from this pagan cults (Easter in English and Ostern in German), it was later assimilated by the Christian-Jewish celebrations.
The ancient people celebrated Eostre on March 30th. Eostre or Ostera (in old German) means the Goddess of the Dawn (or, again, Venus). It is an angle-Saxon Goddess, Teutonic from Spring, Resurrection and Rebirth. It gave name to the Pagan Shabbat that celebrates the rebirth of the so called Ostara.
After reading this exposition, we can conclude that two very important things can said: EASTER IS RESURRECTION, and its celebrating practices of Easter used to be taken by some Pagan practices. And why are we talking about this here in this blog “Reason always! Never think!” ?
Because we want to call your attention to the sense of Resurrection. Then, for millions of years we have been dying and born, dying and born, and always the same to live here in this material plan.
We never achieved the Resurrection, which also means to reach the All Mighty God. Thus being in contact with Him, completely Immunized from the visible and invisible negative influences in this world we live in.
And being in contact with this Supreme Consciousness, one would have already gotten the solutions for the Life and the World. This would be the proof to the real Resurrection.
The World is desperately in need of a redemptive knowledge that connects the human being with his true natural Source. This Knowledge can be attained through Nature itself, in its sublime part.
This Knowledge is propitiate by the Rational Energy. For Nature awakened in 1935. This Energy is synthesized in words that compose the texts in the books of Rational Culture.
It is a must for everybody to attain the Knowledge of the Origin. The Knowledge completes all the other philosophical and cultural compendiums – the real resurrection of the human kind.
Through the Rational Culture all the beliefs and creeds level off to favor everybody's Union. It is time we gave more attention to our true World of Origin – the Supreme World, the Rational World.
Let's study fiercely all the Revelations we are receiving from our True World of Origin and Happy Easter to you all! Read the books Universe in Disenchantment.
