Grieving the Loss of a Friend
The flowing nature of reality has no beginning and no end. In the evolving nature of life, nothing is excluded from this creative expression. The birds know just how to sing and make their nests; the seasons come and go, all in some perfect portrait of this one living Spirit.
I am and we all are, one with this living Spirit. We all are, included in the creative expression of life.
Understanding that our body is designed to feel deeply, to express sadness in a number of ways, I affirm easy passage of these powerful emotions through our experience. We allow Spirit to guide us as we listen to our intuition. Softening our experience by holding our emotions more gently, I accept that we are safe as we grieve. Whatever support that is needed is supplied by this living source of all good.
As we walk this earth together, sharing life’s powerful experiences, I affirm that Spirit comforts us bringing to us just what is needed, lifting us up again. This powerful force gratefully lives and breathes each one of us through whatever life has in mind. Going on with our life there is a clearer awareness of the preciousness of time itself.
Honoring all those that have gone before as beacons for our own inspiration, I give thanks for the power of Spirit in, around, and through all.
Letting my word go, I rest and relax in the faith that all is unfolding just the way it does.
And so it is.
