Good Friday: should we be happy or sad?

Good Friday for those who are not Religious, or have wandered away from theirĀ  Religion, is a time in which Jesus was crucified and died while nailed to a cross, then buried within a tomb sealed by a giant boulder, so nobody could get in. Then on the third day which is Easter, he rose again to be seated at the right of his Father, the Lord God the creator of all Mankind.

The season of lent for those Christians around the world, is a forty day journey of Jesus Christ ending with Holy week, to Jesus being crucified and rising again, showing us all that, if we follow in his footsteps, we to can walk our journeys in peace, while loving ourselves and all those around us. When Jesus walked his journey with us, he taught us many things and he also suffered greatly for us as well. Jesus wanted to show us that, no matter what comes across our paths, no matter how much pain we endear, no matter how much we struggle throughout our journey, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. To be able to get to the path of righteousness, we have to believe and have faith in ourselves, we also have to have faith and believe in him and his father, God himself.

With this faith and belief in ourselves, God and Jesus, we will never lose sight of who we truly are, it is when we lose this faith and don’t believe, that we have this doubt enter our lives along our journey, when we don’t know truly who we are, then we walk our paths with a clouded judgement, that does nothing but have us simply wander, instead of walking with confidence, to become better and stronger throughout our journey here on Earth.

Should we be sad on this good Friday? When you look at it in the way of, all of us throughout Mankind are what is truly wrong within this Society, than yes we need to be sad and maybe some tears and real empathy, will help us fix what is truly wrong with everything around us. With all the technology and through social media on all our technical devices, we have not only lost touch with each other, but we have also lost touch with our true self”s. Instead of communicating face to face with each other, we either email or text each other, this does nothing but create a fake reality and makes us forget who we really are, not too mention building ourselves up and then not living up to the build up. We also should be sad because, we have forgotten that Jesus came to us to show us the way to the path of righteousness, he sacrificed and suffered for us, then he was crucified and buried so we can learn by what was wrong and fix what we needed, so we can walk our paths of our journey to be stronger and better, while we stay true to ourselves, love ourselves as well as our neighbors, so we can all walk in peace with no chaos around us.

The time for us to be happy would be Easter Sunday, as this is the third day when Jesus rose from the dead, to be seated at the right hand of his Father, spoke to us from high above, while showing we to can rise like him, when our journey ends here on Earth, but first we need to follow his lead, remember all his teachings while he walked with us, when things happen to us along our paths, stay true to who we are and have complete faith in Jesus, so he can show us that light at the end of the tunnel, which is the true path of righteousness. Jesus is always with us within our souls and he fills our hearts with warmth, which is his love for us, all we have to do is, acknowledge and feel this warmth of his love, so as we stay true to ourselves, we can share this love with all that is around us, as we all walk our paths along our journey of life in peace, while spreading happiness throughout all of Mankind within our Society.

” Good Friday is only good cause it leads us to Easter Sunday, which is the rising of Jesus Christ, from the suffering he went through for all of us”

” Good Friday is not just a day off from work so you can relax, it is a day to show respect for what is around you, as well as staying true to yourself and believing in yourself, likeĀ  Jesus wanted and taught us when he walked his journey with us”

The light of the dark will always shine no matter what time of day.

“We the people of this Society, think of the light being daytime and the dark being the nighttime”.

To truly know what I mean by the dark, you need not look any further than the nightly news, We see daily all the ugliness going on throughout the World, groups like ISIS, all terrorism whether over seas or here domestically, all the tragedies happening to us from the weather patterns and big storms, then there are others throughout Mankind simply killing others just because they didn’t like the way they looked? This is just tiny compared to all the other darkness, that is going on around us everyday.

Darkness is a lot more than the sun going down for the night sky, to see the stars in the sky at night are beautiful, but “when you see stars from the darkness, this is not the darkness anybody wants to see”. When you look through the history of Mankind, we all have been through many of dark times, ” true there is light at the end of the tunnel”, but to see that light through the darkness, we need to stay strong to ourselves, not only believe in ourselves, but truly believe in the Lord God and Jesus, so they can be our guiding light through the darkness and really see that light at the end of the tunnel.

When we turn on the daily news and see all the darkness around us, or even within our communities, this is enough for us to stay within ourselves, not reach out to those in need, put forth a piece of us that doesn’t really show who we really are, just to try to protect ourselves from this darkness. We then move forward while we numb ourselves from everything around us, but as the darkness around us turns into light and happier times and because we numbed ourselves from everything, we then don’t change cause now this darkest of times has brought us a new comfort level, when we get into a comfort zone, it is very difficult to change and get out of one zone and into another.

True change will always make us happier and more peaceful, as we walk our paths along our journey of life. We neglect any kind of change, simply cause we fear the unknown, just like we fear the terrorists cause we don’t know who or where they are around us, or if they will try something the next time I fly? True change goes deep within who really are, it is getting in touch with our true feelings and emotions, showing more empathy and compassion of ourselves, towards all those around us, true change is getting in touch with ourselves and knowing what makes us tick, when something happens to us we know is wrong, we then look at the long term decision of it before we actually act upon it, as we see in the nightly news, nobody thinks of their actions and how they will affect them down the road, instead they take action, then after the fact get into a reactive mode, which only multiplies the problem, instead of being proactive, think through the action before you take the action, so not only make our own lives better, but make better of those around you.

Even through the darkest of times, when you truly believe in yourself as well as God and Jesus, you will always see the light at the end of the tunnel, true we may have to sacrifice something we love, so we can truly change from what we were, to who we really are, we will have to change from being reactive to proactive on our journey of life, yes this change can be tough at times, it may try to make us doubt ourselves? But as we stay true to who we are, be more proactive with strong communications of everything around us, totally believe in God and Jesus, no matter what that may cross our paths, we will always see the light in the darkest of times. Throughout Mankind there is nobody that traveled their journey without seeing this darkness, you just have to stay true to yourself, believe in God and Jesus, so not only we throughout Society, but we ourselves can walk our paths along our journey of life peacefully and become better and stronger no matter what may come across our paths.

” True change makes us better at everything we do, without it we fall short of truly being true to ourselves”

” Even through the darkness the light can shine bright, belief in yourself along with God and Jesus, will never let the light become extinguished”
