I was up early with jet lag this morning and received news that made my heard fall heavy. The passing of any soul is sad but made much worse when that passing was before its time.
I can’t help but wonder what pain there was to bear. What small burdens added so incrementally together becoming much too heavy or what large burden seemed so insurmountable?
And yet, I know that perhaps there is an explanation that is much simpler. That in some way you might have just felt it was your time. You have no doubt given, created, shared, built and loved great things in your life. I will honor your journey and remember your past. But for those among us that feel without hope, please remember…
We may never know the depths of the world in which you live, but that doesn’t mean you are alone. Separateness is an illusion created when we refuse to let each other in, to seek out and share in each other’s hopes, fears, joys, sorrows, laughter, sadness, accomplishments, failures and love; to experience the interconnectedness of being.
We are all one. Your burden is no less my own. Let me carry it for you and share it among the strength of humanity. Together we can weave a web that holds us all, as fine and delicate as that of a spider and just as strong. To all those who are in pain, please let us in, for we were already connected long before we met.
RIP. Look over us, and help us see the light in each other. You remain in our hearts.
