Someone asked a question about grief and loss at a recent Krishna Das workshop, and this was his response.
So many of us say these words. But do we really believe it at a gut level?
Do we “get” that we are eternal souls that do not die? And that our grief is actually for the shell that encases the soul, and that the soul does go on?
How many of us have had experiences with those who have left their bodies? Signs and communications?
And yet, most of us must still be reminded that nobody dies. Not really.
Today would be a good day to really take that in. Meditate on it. Feel it.
And believe it. Because we don’t die.
