Another Question

Share it Please
"Love the blog. It starts my day with positive reinforcement. Question, When an individual decides to leave their body before we are ready for them to leave by means that we cannot understand, how can we resolve in our mind that not only is this a choice but how do we gently soothe our own souls in the process and bless their transition?"

One of my spiritual heroes said it best "We never get over love". Metaphysicians sometimes struggle with uncomfortable feelings, perhaps forgetting that there is such a thing as appropriate grief. Because we feel sad does not mean that we do not understand what has happened. It is a paradox that we can both grieve and understand at the same time. Actually, classic texts in mourning tell us that one of the features of grief is simultaneous emotions that are quite different. We can understand, not understand, be happy, be mad, cry and lauhgh all within moments of each other. To me this is the soul's process of completing the transaction of incorporating a difficult, unexpected, probably not well understood event. If we can remember during this process that these are features of our journey, it might be helpful and we might avoid making assumptions about ourselves and what we ought to be experiencing and rather notice the deep love that leads us to these feelings in the first place.

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well!
