With Ostara, we finished a significant sequence of events within
the Wheel of the Year. We begin with a death at Samhain, and
see a birth at Yule. But what was born at Yule is only an
infant. At Imbolc, what was born is beginning to have some
strength. And at Ostara, the one who was born at Yule is seen
as being really back to life in every sense.
In many ways, it's like a graduation. And you can look back and see where you've been. And perhaps more importantly, you can look forward and see what lies ahead.
Ancient lore from almost any spiritual path (including that which we share here) will tell you what lies between death in one lifetime and re-birth in the next. And there are many points which all of them seem to have in common. Of course, people who purport to speak for a particular path will lay claim to certain embellishments as if they were true.
And somewhere, there is reality. How to tell your own reality? There are a couple of basic facts which can make a great deal be abundantly clear.
I'm not going to give you answers, but I will show you where to find answers.
