Take a Moment to Remember
As you sip this morning’s cup, take a moment to remember your loved ones who have crossed. Love is the bridge that connects us all, whether we are together here or waiting on the other side of the Great Divide.
We have one thing in common as a species, we remember our ancestors, our loved ones in unique and beautiful ways. Some cultures have an intimate, ongoing relationship with their loved ones. In other places, it is a time like this (November 1st is All Saints Day or the Day of the Dead) when the memories of those we loved come most frequently to mind.
When I look up at the stars at night, I remember those who are no longer with me. The twinkling lights are comforting, and remind me of the billions of lights that have burned brightly here and that now illuminate another realm so beautifully.
Take a moment to acknowledge those who have gone before you. Perhaps they did not live the kind of life you would have wanted them to live, but they lived the life they chose for themselves. We cannot comprehend the purpose of someone else’ experience. We can only remember they were humans, and they struggled just like we do.
Godspeed to all of them. May they find peace. May we find peace as well.
Life is a dream from which we all must wake before we can dream again. ~ Robert Jordan
