“The sun sets and the moon sets, but they’re not gone. Death is a coming together.” Rumi
Death is both dramatic and subtle. Over time, the parting of a loved one becomes less harsh as slowly and gently a continued bond is revealed. As I open my heart to the promptings and guidance of those I love who have passed from the physical sphere, I am alert to the contact, which comes to me in many forms… as memory, as intuition and coincidence. Rather than bitterly close my heart, I allow myself to maintain a gentle but alert attention to the touch of Spirit. I remind myself that life begets life and that those I love live on in my loving memory of them. I also allow for the possibility that my memory lives on in them, triggering their concerned contact in subtle forms.
Today, I deliberately practice open-mindedness. I cultivate a willingness to experience subtle realms.
excerpt from Transitions by Julia Cameron
These words speak to me. I have come to believe that there is a thin veil between us and those that have gone before. If we are aware we can pick up on energy and signs that they are with us always.
