“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is.” (Grand Master Yoda)
Of course I felt sad whenever somebody close to me died. However I never approached death of anybody as strictly tragic.
Like Yoda said — death is a part of life, right? One of the few certainties we all have no matter how rich, poor, healthy or unhealthy we are.
Each day we’re all getting closer to the Rainbow bridge and we can do nothing about it.
Nothing except for one think: simply enjoy the time we have left.
Do you know Anita Moorjani? She’s an author of the book Dying to be me.
One part of this book explains how calm and peacefuly Anita felt in her NDE (Near Death Experience) state although her body was crammed with lemon-sized tumours.
She explains how beatiful the relativity of time and place can be when you’re about to die.
While experiencing NDE she managed to feel the presence of her beloved onen who were already dead. Especially her father.
Anita told him how tired she was due to all pain and suffering she’s been through.
All her dad (or his essence) told her was the choice whether to stay alive or die is all her.
After this experience Anita made it out of her coma. And most importantly — after a few weeks no tumour was found in her body at all.
Doctors and scientists couldn’t believe it. They were searching for a cause of her sudden recovery.
But they couldn’t find one as they were unable to accept the fact this “miracle” was much higher above what we can understand by our logic.
It’s strange, isn’t it?
We are often so paralyzed by the fear of death. That’s the part I can quite understand as our brains often need to experience certain thinks in order to consider them harmless.
What I don’t get is why we mourn so much.
Why do we express only our condolence when somebody dies?
Why does an atmosphere on funerals feels like a big tragedy just took place?
According to people who’ve been through NDE we know our beloved ones become free and painless when they die.
From the same people we know it’s even possible to meet our beloved ones again. Or at least strongly feel their pressence.
It’s ok to feel sad when anybody close to you dies. We’re all people with feelings.
But I guess it’s ok to feel relief as well. Because death of your beloved ones doesn’t have to mean you’re gonna stay all alone in this world.
If you decide to, you might be able keeping your connections to people you love. And it really doesn’t matter whether they’re in this world or passed the Rainbow bridge already.
Just remember what the essence of Anita’s father said: “The choice is all yours my dear...”
