Regeneration, as defined by Merriam Webster means:

1: an act or the process of regenerating the state of being regenerated

2: spiritual renewal or revival

3: renewal or restoration of a body, bodily part, or biological system (as a forest) after injury or as a normal process

Regeneration, as defined by Wikipedia:

In biology, regeneration is the process of renewal, restoration, and growth that makes genomescells, organs, organisms, and ecosystems resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage.

Why am I posting definitions today?

Today in the Christian religions is Easter.  Today, in most religions is about rebirth.

The Resurrection of Christ.

The death and rebirth of Gods in other religions.

The rebirth of life through the coming of Spring.

I could go on. But the point is rebirth.

Rebirth is an awful lot like Regeneration.

Regeneration is what we’re all about here. Regenerating, spiritual renewal and revival, creation and restoration of systems, the process that makes us ‘resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage.’ {Loved that verbiage!}

This past week, I have spent a considerable amount of time contemplating my long ago past – recently having gotten back in contact with a few friends from ages ago.  It is always a mixed combination of emotions when you look that far back into your history.

I also have been forced to contemplate my recent past – having fairly recently gone through a major life upheaval only to take a few small steps forward then be pushed into a step backwards. One of my actions through my contemplation was to actively seek the positive lessons that have come from what on the surface appear to be negative situations.

This, of course, led me to contemplation of the future.

In which direction AM I headed? How do I know I’ve pointed my car in the right direction? How can I arrive at my destination with minimal injury, insult, and loss of emotional ‘property?’

There are no guarantees. Except one:

The journey will be worth the adventure.

But to enjoy the adventure, one needs to hop in the car, dive off the cliff, jump into the river (insert your favorite analogy here) before one can get anywhere.

This week has been wonderful and painful, an opportunity for growth.

I encourage you to try it.

Make time this week to contemplate the future and the direction in which you’re headed.

Are you even on a journey? Sometimes we stagnate in our lives. If you aren’t already on a journey, begin one. Try something new.  Start small if it’s scary, but start!

Take your journey. Make your journey. Enjoy the adventure.

Let today begin the journey of rebirth and regeneration for you as you celebrate in whichever manner you choose. The next step you take will be the first step into a bright future of your making.

In Light and Love
