Death has a toll on the living. Sure many religions tell you that death has a toll on the one that passes. That we spend our lives preparing for a greater trial. Some believe that you will come back to life based on the life you’ve lead. Some believe in a place of rest, some a place of judgement, some a place of honor.
For me God, the grand architect of the universe, set forth this grand experiment of life to be lived and appreciated to its fullest. I always wanted to believe when someone close to me passes I would not mourn, rather I would rejoice in the life the shared with me. For the most part I have held to that. In a few exceptions I have been sadden for the loss, but I always felt greedy about it. That is because of my view of the world and reality. I look at it as they have had their journey. They traversed through their own trials and tribulations and now they finally are at peace. Some may have passed suddenly. Some not so peacefully, some peacefully in their sleep. The end is they are now somewhere I am not, and now in an experience I know not. I choose to believe that experience is better, more rewarding, and peaceful, than the drudges of life’s consistent ups and downs.
Many thoughts flood my mind on this subject. Over the last year there have been a couple of people I know pass on to the next phase in this cycle we call life. Many of the typical ups and downs that each unique life has.
My unique view on life, faith, existence, has always been strong and solid. One of my favorite Holy texts I turn to for those who cannot do anything but mourn during this time is Revelation 21:4 “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
All I can do is ask for peace, love, wisdom, strength, and guidance to rain down on all who need it.
