Rays of Wisdom - Comfort For The Bereaved - Letter To A Friend - Epilogue

Who is blind?
The one who cannot see another world.
Who is dumb?
The one who cannot speak a word of love at the right time.
Who is poor?
The one who is plagued by too many desires.
Who is rich?
The one whose heart is contented.

Anon.

This part of my work is an attempt at standing by and holding the hand of those who are presently working their way through the pain and grief that accompanies the passing of our loved ones into the world of light. It came into being because many in our world to this day have little or no understanding of the processes that lie behind the scenes of our earthly existence. It fills me with sadness to witness that some people are struggling hard to come to terms with losing a loved one, even if that person departed from our plane of life years ago.

I believe that first and foremost we are spirit and soul, who are having an earthly experience, and that our true home is the world of spirit or light. The gift of each new lifetime on the Earth is given to us, so that we should learn and grow in wisdom and understanding of the purpose and meaning of the human condition and all life. The main reason for being here is that we should investigate and be inquisitive about everything that comes our way, eager to learn and understand until we finally grasp that the things that take place behind the  surface of the world of appearances is by far the most important, valuable and beautiful aspect of all life and also our own. By sharing some of my reflections and insights I have found into this, in particular into the nature of death, I hope to at least occasionally reach someone to whom my words speak and whose pain of parting with a loved one will be eased, maybe even healed.

To paraphrase Elisabeth Kübler-Ross: ‘The most beautiful people in this world are those who have experienced defeat, suffering, struggle, loss and battled their way out of the depths back into the fullness of life. This has provided them with an appreciation, a sensitivity and understanding that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen, they evolve.’
 
You will find that the events that are presently moving through your life, when they are used in the spirit of enquiry and learning, will in time become for you a gateway into a another dimension. When the great wisdom of our Divine Father/Mother intends it to be so, who would we be to argue? If you will but reach out and touch the Angel’s hand, who is guiding you through it all, you will find – wrapped in this parcel of sorrow and pain that your life is now bringing you – a gift of love and of an ever growing understanding of the true purpose of life.

Our life moves in two and a half year cycles. Astrology confirms this, but I will not bore you with technicalities here. The experts agree that it takes about this amount of time for the inner wounds of a bereavement to heal and to come to terms with the changes in our life. When this particular period of loss and grieving in our lives is over and we have done the healing work it requires, we shall be ready for new experiences and enjoying our life more fully than ever before.

The same as all my other writings this letter grew and evolved over many years. As I myself found a better understanding of the purpose and meaning of life, I gradually added to it. By making it available here I hope that some of you will be guided to the threshold of your own understanding. The way I see it, in Spirit and in God/the Universe/our Highest Self – delete whatever name does not speak to your innermost self – we are all one. It is a natural human reaction that when someone is suffering one wants to do something about it. In no single other aspect of life is more suffering experienced than in connection with death, caused by not knowing and understanding what this life is all about.

The more we learn about the realities that lie behind Earth life, the easier we shall be able to set ourselves free from unnecessary suffering. The aim of this work is to do my share of helping humankind to overcome two of its worst fears, the fear of life and the fear of death. If it succeeds in doing so, at least occasionally, my efforts will not have been in vain.

So long as this you fail to see:
That death precedes re-birth;
A gloomy guest you’ll always be,
Upon this darkling Earth.


From ‘The Soul’s Yearning’
Goethe

An Arabic Wisdom says: ‘Trust the veiled hand that leads none by the path they would [consciously] choose to go; and always be prepared for change, for the Universe’s law is ebb and flow.’ May the Angels of healing and of peace be with you and all those around you, to bring you comfort and sustenance during this difficult time of adjustment. May God bless you and keep you and all your loved ones safe, now and forever.
