darkstalkers: resurrection

ἀνάστασις -
The Greek for resurrection, anastasis literally means, “aná” up, again, and “hístēmi,” stand up, referring to the physical resurrection of the body, that is, raising from the dead. This word is symbolic for those who were restored to life from the dead. Death can be literal or metaphorical. An emotional dearth, a loss of a close one, or a tragedy all constitute as a type of death. But, when the individual experiences ἀνάστασις, he becomes reborn, resurrected, into a new form of being. This new state exudes life at its peak, as one has fully volta-d from the dead to the living.

Today, I saw Jesus alive. I hid from him because I was ashamed. When He saw me, He ran to me. My body was weak and my knees buckled, but He caught me… And embraced me. As I held on to His white garments tightly, I cried ‘Don’t leave me!’ His words were like honey as He whispered in my ear, ‘I will always be with you.’

The Creature is born, Penny dreadful S01E03 ‘Resurrection’


Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again.

Caliban, The Tempest, Act III, Scene II (Shakespeare)

“At that moment, they heard from behind them a loud noise. Lucy and Susan looked around. There, shining in the sunrise, larger than they had seen him before, stood Aslan himself.”
