When a loved one leaves us it hurts. The individual spirit is swept back into the ocean of life. We can no longer see them, hear them, touch them. Yet, the spirit has rejoined the whole of which we are a part.
In nature, all around us, we see death, we see birth and rebirth from winter to spring. We are not separate from this and yet it remains a mystery.
It is written that we must follow The Way to rejoin the eternal beyond. We must not embrace Sin but rather intend to reflect “The Way” in our daily life.
So, my dad, did not know Christ, but I know that his life followed The Way that Christ illuminates. I know my dad has rejoined the ocean of which I am a part.
I hope that he feels my spirit and soul as he rests in peace.
