The only constant in life is change. We live in a state of perpetual losses. The last breath we just took will never return... yesterday is in the past and there will never be another day like it... we are not the same person we were an hour ago even on a molecular level. So why do we grieve loss?
It is never about the person, place or thing that we have lost. You see, as human beings we are incredibly selfish in some ways. It's about how that person, thing or place made us feel ... the euphoria of love, hope and joy that they induced in us. They simply came into our life to teach us how to connect to a higher frequency of love and loving. When they leave or we lose something that is valuable to us we have to stay connected to the feelings they brought into our lives. Through them we were allowed to tap into a higher pool of love with a more open heart. That pool is ours to stay in should we be willing to navigate out of our grief. In that pool we now have access to other people and things that are in tune with our new frequency of love.
So start loving... Start loving everything and everyone around you. You have been given a gift. Each loss is a new beginning and an opportunity to exercise your heart muscles to expand further and love deeper. Always stay in love.
