Saving us from spiritual blindness

In this country, where scandals seem to be the norm, murders and other serious crimes are soaring and corruption is the order of the day, it is easy to let another Easter season pass by, unremarked.

Let us use this season to resurrect right behaviour from the quicksand of ignorance, greed and anger. Did we wash away our feet of ignorance on Holy Thursday? Crucify our ego on Good Friday? Introspect and meditate in the tomb of silence on Gloria Saturday? And resurrect our consciousness to be one with the Christ consciousness on Easter Sunday? Only then can we save our country from the spiritual blindness from which it suffers.
