This week, I am giving myself permission to FEEL. We lost our beloved rabbit to a four legged predator this week. I honestly have been quite floored by this, even though I know it’s the nature of life and death.
I reluctantly made peace with death when I was twenty and experienced the loss of my Dad.
But I still struggle with suffering... Suffering as a means to growth and enlightenment, yes. But suffering as a means to an end?
I understand death as a passage. We are given a sacred garment during this lifetime, a beautiful body that we will leave behind. But ultimately - we are eternal.
In an ideal world death will be a peaceful, graceful transition after a long lived life; but the nature of life has a greater plan beyond that which my heavy heart can comprehend. That is my growth, my learning.
As I feel the sadness surround me, I am reminded that our gentle fluff-ball Archie, does not suffer now. It is I who suffers in my quest to understand.
Today, honour your process. Know that not all will be revealed in this lifetime. And that is ok. Acceptance eventually paves the way for peace... but for now, give yourself permission to feel.
