The concept of life ~ being a witness to grasp the reality of a newborn coming into this world surviving to live verses an older individual surviving to die.
In my unfolding moments of yesterday, I have stopped to recognize a concept of life. From watching a child being born, healthy ~ to the birth of a child that is only twenty-five weeks old with a Spirit to survive ~ to a family member who has struggled with their health, came to their decision to survive to die. The concept is that all living Spirits experience the many wonders of Life that brings tears of joy and tears of sadness. But the truth as I can see it ~ Life is each individual's life once we are brought into this world; the outsiders only get to watch. Due to love, caring, empathy ~ this sadness crosses over our hearts and brings this emotion of sadness. At times this sadness can bring heavy pain inside the chest with tears that flow upon the cheeks like a river. It's the loss of that body that contain their individual spirit and character that is identified with a name.
Our family member who chose his path last week to stop continuing health care ~ their final wishes were to be home around family and pass on. They knew in their mind what they wanted, how they wanted it and knew the final decisions to complete this task ~ the rest was in Their Holy Spirit. They were comfortable with their choice, just not comfortable in a body of suffering. Now all that remained was taking it one day at a time until their survival to pass came. It took six days ~ yesterday morning become stillness for them.
Sometimes there are simply no words that can be said to the one who is the closest to the one that departed ~ so it’s the gleam of hope that remains in the hearts and the faith within that brings this comfort ~ time heals the pain ~ and allows us slowly to begin anew.
A message to each family ~ friend ~ acquaintance ~ who is part of this time of sorrow: The Temple we are given ~ travels through a life’s journey by many choices ~ till we come to the time to enter into Eternal Life. May your heart be filled with peace knowing that our Fellow Spirit who touched our path in some fashion is at rest and continues within mind and Spirit.
Death has come to me in a very peaceful understanding of someone else’s wishes.
