Death

Published:

The death of someone close to us leave us shocked with grief. We cannot understand how one minute this person was here and the next they are gone. The truth is that those we love are never truly gone. The body may have run its course, but the soul lives forever. Human beings have been cognizant of eternal life since the beginning of time. Every culture has its own traditions about death and reincarnation. The anxiety commonly felt about death in our culture is a result of a scientific schema which says that "if I don't see it, it's not there".

Oh, so true, Angel. When we can't see an airplane because it flies high above the clouds, it still exists, but is only out of our reach.   I read this passage from a Mary Baker Eddy publication when I studied Christian Science, and it stayed with me:

"When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts. Oh, may you feel this touch,—it is not the clasping of hands, nor a loved person present; it is more than this: it is a spiritual idea that lights your path! The Psalmist saith: "He shall give His angels charge over thee." God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for tomorrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment. What a glorious inheritance is given to us through the understanding of omnipresent Love! More we cannot ask: more we do not want: more we cannot have. This sweet assurance is the "Peace, be still" to all human fears, to suffering of every sort."

When I signed on again tonight, I saw the "post your thoughts" etc. comment at the bottom. That must have been on the site from which I copied the passage. Sorry.   I googled a few words, since I remembered it, but not word for word. It's one of my favorite writings. Your loved one is not really gone, just in a place so high that we as humans can't see it (yet)

Sorry for your pain & grief.
-Nancy
