Out of sight, out of Mind? or Does absence make the heart grow fonder?

For some, absence slowly fades the memory of a departed loved one. The longing, the tears slowly start to dissolve into a time gone by. They have fallen out of sight; they have drifted out of mind.


For others, their absence fuels the fire of heartbreak. Their very lives dedicated to restoring memory and emotional embrace. Each day serving as a way to reclaim their presence. For these folks their absence makes the heart grow fonder.


Which is truer for you?

OK I'll be the outlier....lol.....neither is true for me.....there is no such thing as absence, only absence of form....the soul is eternally present.....it's when you think they are gone that you lose that connection....which is never truly lost....it can be torture though when you really think they are truly gone....heartbreaking.....

Absence of thought and memory cause great pain. Although, ultimately the soul is eternal...to the one who has lost a loved person, it does not compute...only the pain. For some, all they have left is the past, for them the future is impossible to imagine without their loved one. This is their sorrow, not all are ready for acceptance and presensce.

This is interesting. I think I'm somewhere in the middle, if that's possible?

Simply allow your thoughts and memories to rise and fall within your mind. Don't resist them, don't try to attach to them. In time, your soul will settle in the present moment, the only place that they truly reside. This is the grace of presensce, a place, where thought and memory do not exist. The eternal NOW!
