Today, as it is customary in my family I went to the catholic church to celebrate the easter! I am non practicing moslem (like most of you), but my kids are christian because of their mom. I have no intention of becoming a christian, since I still believe islam, if practiced accordingly and not mixed with politics, is better than christianinty. However, I don't need to belong to any religion, since every religion has a lot of good in it and I can pick and choose the goods in all. Zartoshti sounds good as well.
I go to church on special occasions to support my family. This year there was a different priest than the previous years. What he said was that: "it is not as jesus physically rose from death and went to heaven - it was that he was transformed from one form to another. This day is about transforming us as the community, neighborhoods, country, or family. Throw away your bad memories from the past and start a new like an unborn child! This is the spirit of Easter!"
Well, this is why I thought to share this blog with you. This was nothing new to me, but it was new since it differs from what most christians believe. What i found intersting was the fact that this is exactly what NOROOZ is all about, and it is not coincident that it happens at the beginning of spring. Is there any relationship here? I would need to do more research, but I would not be surpriesed if I find out that it has dervived from our Norooz.
What is important is the message whether it is in easter, or norooz. Forget about the past and forgive the people for the wrongs that they have done; start a new everyday and enjoy the life as there is no tomorrow!
