It is hard watching a loved one work through a terminal illness, only to see them lose their fight for life. I know because I’ve been through it.
As reality sets in the feeling of hopelessness beds in as we continue to work through the days that lie ahead. As panic sets in, we begin to work on autopilot, as we cling to the hope that we have another day with no guarantees.
Having to come to terms with losing someone, makes their passing final. As we are forced to come to terms with the possibility that we may have to lose a loved one, we forget the cycle of life exists in this time frame. Although loved ones physically leave us, spiritually they will always be around us. They’re never far away.
To some death is final. It’s the black hole we equate with death that nothing exists after their passing. But the door we close, doesn’t stay closed at all. A person’s passing is eternal, it continues in the after life. Death marks the transition and crossing from one life to another, in a different time zone that’s all.
If we learn to embrace that concept, we will never fear a loved-ones passing, or see their passing as final. A person’s passing is inevitable and eternal.
