Parallel lives

As a young adult, I used to see the passing of anyone as a final gesture, not something that was an extension of where they had already come from; the spirit world. Before we’re born into this life, I believe we come from spirit and have lived other lives.

As I prepare to say my goodbyes, I believe my father will go back to the spirit world and that he will live a life parallel to mine. Death, which still seems taboo to some and final to others, is neither for me.  It’s just another life, not here with us.

Finally, on the 6th March 2013, my father held on to life until I returned to his house, then passed away peacefully. He was waiting until I got back to the house and drifted off as soon as I walked into his bedroom.

His life was complete.

  1. Yes, I believe there is another life awaiting us. A better life, not that this one has been bad but something better awaits us.

    I also believe that our loved ones do live on and around us, protecting us at times and giving us comfort. They definitely are in our hearts, forever to live there.

    My family and I send our deepest condolences to you and your family.

  2. He will now be free of pain. Hope you are at peace now.

    Just take it easy and know you did everything you could for your father.

  3. I’m sorry to hear about your father’s passing. Sending my deepest condolences.

    I agree with what you said about someone’s passing being an extension of life. I too think they are connected in several ways.

    The Loved always find a way to make their presence known in our lives. It’s a wonderful thing and reassuring in many ways as well.

    1. Thanks LeAnna. I agree with you. It’s definitely a reassuring process to believe that loved ones who pass have a constant presence in our lives.

      I totally believe in the concept that both of my parents will be around me now, just not with me. This is why I’m not struggling through the bereavement process. It is very reassuring.
