Easter thoughts

Tomorrow is Easter. For me, Easter is not just time to reflect upon what Christ has done. It is also a time to think about how mankind can live in harmony, without prejudices and without inadvertently destroying mother Earth in the meantime.

In Christianity, the God of the New Statement, unlike the God of the Old Testament, seems to be characterised by love and compassion. Here is a quote on love for ourselves.

“What do I mean by loving ourselves properly? I mean first of all, desiring to live, accepting life as a very great gift and a great good, not because of what it gives us, but because of what it enables us to give to others.”

Thomas Merton
