There is power in prayer and meditation that can directly help the souls that pass on, and their loved ones. It is our service to one another to manifest this compassion. We should always be sending out the conscious energy of sympathy and holding it mindfully for the world. An incredibly strong meditation is to say, “There is no tragedy that can shake me from my belief that all is well,” even if the adversity seems overwhelming. When you start to look beyond yourself and help others, whether it’s with service, charitable monies, or even just with your consciousness, you are turning grief into giving. When souls are leaving the planet and you have the ability to sit still and meditate on compassion, they can utilize your energy to cross over without fear.
The manifestation of enduring happiness for yourself – the kind that accepts that there will be times of sadness and grief – will only come when you serve another being. It is very rewarding knowing someone who is suffering or in pain feels relief because of what you said or did. Money, possessions, or status, will never trump that energy. Service IS your path to what is rightfully yours. Service will bring you joy. Helping others is a beneficial, positive expression of grief when dealing with loss. It is easy to have empathy for somebody who is suffering – you do not need to have absolute enlightenment, or be a healer. People heal themselves all the time. You are an important witness to their healing when you hold loving compassion for them.
Loss and death are the ultimate acts of surrender and devotion to the continuum of time and its divine nature. We are here to learn to give, and to receive, and the process of mourning loss and death is a perfect reflection of that. Your life derives meaning from how you choose to approach the journey and give of yourself. We receive a finality of our earthly presence to remind us that we are the same – we all die and bring only our spirit to another existence. Each of us deserves the same love, kindness, and compassion as any other being. In the end, our ultimate service is to give ourselves away. If we look at the loss of a loved one from that perspective, we remember that there are larger forces at work. That person has finished their time here and is needed elsewhere.
In loving celebration of our dear friend Teri Merliss.
