My Own Quotes For Grieving

If physical life is said to be akin to sleeping, death is the greatest awakening of all.

To die from physical life is to realize there was never any real reason not to love. Those who grieve a deceased loved one are now loved without condition and with an intensity that they cannot even imagine.

The death of a loved one is often a reminder of how deeply we are capable of loving...and it is important during such times to remember that pure love does not hurt. Do not be afraid to feel your love for the deceased fully...love them with abandon and allow the tears that arise to cleanse. Love transforms.

In death, my brother is now closer to me than ever. I continually remind myself that he is always but a thought away, as close as my next heart-beat.

Death is merely the reopening of a door that is immediately familiar. We do not close the door behind us, but allow it to remain open so we may flow back and forth freely like a whimsical breeze.

I trust that the above quotes for grieving have been of benefit. The physical loss of those we love is undoubtedly the most difficult part of physical existence, however, through expanding our consciousness to perceive from a more expansive vantage point, we come to not only strengthen our belief in an afterlife, but to KNOW the truth of our eternal nature.

Please feel free to share your own quotes for grieving or any insights about coping with the death of a loved one you may have. I also appreciate all opinions about life after death and belief in an afterlife, regardless of whether you agree with the viewpoints espoused on this site or not. I look forward to reading your comments and quotes for grieving.
