This was a sad week, because 2 of my friends lost their loved ones after a long battle against cancer. Losing is never easy. Sometimes we chose leaving and that´s something else. They didn´t. They were loved, they loved, they wanted to stay, but they had to leave. I think of cancer as a desease that appears so one can be taken care of. I think also someone with a lot of sadness or anger con accumulate enough of bad energy so it can become a cancer. Life can be lost, jobs can be lost, opportunities can be lost… but the soul lives on. I like to believe that loved ones, when they die, it´s like they move far, far away in a place where they can be forever glad, healthy and peaceful. I imagine it as a place so strange and far to what i´ve ever seen, that it could look like this…
I like to think that one day we will all meet there, catch up the news, live happy ever after. I believe this is just the ‘warm up’… real fun starts when we are free from the heavy matter and energy. Freedom at last. Challenge and the adversity are things we have to deal with after we lose someone we love. But that´s part of this game called life. Real living, I believe, is for those who continue, after they leave this silly game full of loss and pain.
