A time for grieving



For some, grief is a never-ending journey through sorrow and absence. They wear their grief like a horsehair coat, the sound of chains rattling as they walk. They have no timetable; they have no hourglass. Grief has become their constant companion.


For others, they bathed in the pool of grief and sorrow, washing their wounds, healing their souls. They do not resist what has happened, they have accepted loss and sorrow as they do growing older. It simply is, as it is. They have found that grief has served as their ally, the power of acceptance has become their new clothes. For them, grief rises and then slowly dissolves into the joy of laughter and life. For them, grief has served as a form of renewal of love, not withdrawal from it.


How long should one grieve?


Your thoughts might help another to heal.

I know people on both sides of the coin. But, for me personally, thus far, I've been able to accept grief with grace. I've lost so many in my life and I can't tell what's up ahead, but only pray for acceptance and guidance each time I have to go through it.

Maggie...grief is always based on the resistance to the movement of all living things. When there is love, there is the birth of attachment. Attachment is the clinging to love, rather than the acceptance of loves journey. Most people suffer terribly from grief, some truly see it as rebirth into God's grace, a celebration rather than a funeral.
