“Passover affirms the great truth that liberty is the inalienable right of every human being.”  – Morris Joseph

Our predominantly Judeo-Christian culture holds this weekend as sacred.  It is a time reserved for reflection on and celebration of liberation.  Jews celebrate Passover, commemorating the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery.  Christians celebrate Easter, also called Pasch or Resurrection Sunday, honoring the resurrection of Jesus Christ, bringing liberation from death/separation from God to eternal life.

Suppression and separation have existed – and continue to exist – in all cultures and religions.  As long as we live in fear, we will live with suppression and separation.  Suppression and separation exists both externally and . . .

. . . internally, as well.

When we experience that the true expression of who we are is stifled or we feel isolated relationally, we experience an internal slavery; an internal grave.

If you know in your heart that your life in any way feels stifled or isolating, I want to encourage you to consider what needs to be transformed, liberated, or resurrected for you to live joy-fully free from the past.

Then I encourage you to consider how you need to be, what you need to do, and what needs to change for you to live the quality of life that is indeed your inalienable right.
