Greetings Dot Online Seekers!
I hope that everyone is getting geared up for the upcoming holiday, or as most believers would have it, the upcoming Holy Day. Either way, it is a day of celebration, whether one focuses on Ēostre, who is variously depicted by scholars as a fertility goddess and a goddess of dawn and light or on Jesus, the Son of God who resurrected from death, and redeemed mankind from the same ultimate spiritual fate. The first goddess is associated with Easter, and the concept of hares and eggs, while Jesus is connected to Resurrection Day and associated with sacrifice and liberty.
A common color fixed between the two symbols of this spring day is white. We find the color white associated with the redeeming qualities of the sacrifice of Christ, when one is washed in the blood and becomes pure, ore white as snow; and we also find white on the Easter bunny in his most common appearances. So for the sake of conversation, let’s see exactly what does the white rabbit himself symbolize and just exactly who he may be. A quick glance over at google search brings us up to this urban dictionary page, https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=white%20rabbit where the white rabbit is defined as, “One of the many mistical figures that leads you into a hole of psychological discovery. Sometimes related to using psychedelic drugs like lsd, but also used in hypnosis and meditation to reach a desired destination (such as a different level of consciousness or location) The main verb attached to the white rabbit is to follow.”
Hmm, Jesus was know to pick out people and say “Follow ME,” and He also takes us new level of psychological discovery. Is He the white rabbit in disguise? But why would He be a psychedelic drug? The same website also goes on to say that the white rabbit is A person whose attendance at a social gathering guarantees your own attendance. This may be a crush, significant other, or close friend. Upon being told of their attendance, you immediately decide you will go. Taken from the 1999 film “The Matrix” in which the main character is told by his computer to “follow the white rabbit” and shortly after accepts an invitation to go clubbing with his friends only after he sees that one of them has a white rabbit tattoo. This in itself is a reference to Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland“. O.K. Then the same source says the white rabbit has gone through insanity and back, is also cocaine, and a popular Japanese candy. At this point we realize that this dictionary is nothing at all like Webster’s and is prone to be full of crap.
The next source up is Wikipedia, who identifies the White Rabbit as (Dr. Lorina Dodson) is a fictional supervillainess appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Rabbit_(comics) . She is described as an eccentric female criminal, whose costume resembled a cross between the literary character from Alice in Wonderland and a Playboy Bunny. While the White Rabbit is clearly insane to the point of being completely ridiculous, she is quite articulate and has a great knowledge of literature. Now we have the elements of criminal activity and jail added but also there goes the feminine aspect and fertility thrown in as well as a children’s story. Could the white rabbit be Eostre? But didn’t Jesus go to jail wrongfully and also say that unless one should become as a little child they could not enter into the kingdom of Heaven which is where we are trying to follow Him to get to? How far down does the rabbit hole go?
After deep consideration, it has led me to conclude these things. The white rabbit is an insane character associated with a playboy bunny who is someone kids like but went to jail like Jesus did falsely accused. That means that on the other side of the looking glass, Alice, the white rabbit is none other than the infamous Roger Rabbit. Roger that. Until next time dotfinders,
