Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil; for thou art with me. Psalm 23:4
In the greatest darkness we are loved, in the farthest reaches we are home.
In this great darkness we are closer than before to god.
We have journeyed into the deepest parts of our being.
Where there is nothing but love.
Into the darkness we go, to find ourselves.
I can’t tell you whats beyond this point, only that we go to find ourselves there. When we are experiencing grief we are taken to this place of unfathomable depth. It is a deep process. There is no time here.
When we are grieving we are not able to convey how much we truly feel because it is a felt experience. We know it but can often not put it into words.
Therefore we try to control it, but it is not so easily restrained. It demands to be felt.
Grief is a process which can be navigated if you surrender to it. But you cannot walk the path alone.
It is about connection. It is re-connection. It is creation. This is not something done in isolation.
If you are holding your grief you will be carrying a large load. Not just for yourself, but for the whole of humanity, and it is too heavy for you alone to manage. You must reach out for help.
You must respond to your grief and let it guide you through the darkness and as you emerge you will see anew a world not as before.
And you will never forget who you lost, but you will find peace.
