Death, Not A Finality.

Death is not a finality, but a transition from one plane of consciousness to another. And we all have to undertake this journey one day, when we will drop this mortal flesh, the jacket of the soul and continue the journey of life. Coming to terms with this fact would help minimize the grief occasioned by the passing away of our loved ones.

The Passing Away Of My Dad

When my father died last year, the void, the emptiness that i felt remains an experience that words can not adequately express. One need to feel it to know it. For those who have at one time or another pass through this route before, will readily understand what it feels like loosing a dear one.
However, through the misty eyes of grief and sorrow, the reality of life and death became more clearer to me. This man, my father, that i loved so much was once a child, who became a man and finally succumbed to death. I saw a kind of a progression, a natural sequence between life at one point, and death at the other. And of course, i came to terms with the inevitable; the reality of death as a natural end for all mortals, and this made a very deep impression in my consciousness, and greatly helped me to gradually retrieve my life from the depth of desolation.
I have no doubt, that the sad but awakening experience that followed my Dad's transition, must have changed me positively. I now do a lot of introspection, and look for deeper meanings in things because, they do exist. And life? i do now see it as forward moving event, its wheels turns constantly and its goes on in spite of everything. Yes, the rhythm of life is uninterrupted day in day out. We just have to play our part, do the best we can in all situations, live in peace and harmony with other people and nature. It is my believe that, if we do these, then, when the time comes for us to leave this mother earth, we will not do that with trepidation and fear of here after, but with a satisfaction that we have acquitted ourselves, and thus, well equipped and prepared to face the another life.

My father in law passed away last month, it is never an easy thing. What saddens me most is that I had only just gotten to know him.

It is a burden we all have to face at one point or another in life.
