Grief in the River of Time

“Just as in a flowing river, particles of sand and water come together for a time and are separated by the current, so are men joined and separated in this world by the flow of time.”
~ The Adhyatma Ramayana, translated by Swami Tapasyananda

 

Dear readers,

All of us human beings share in the knowledge that one day we will experience the inevitable parting in death from our loved ones… We know this truth, and yet, when our dear ones actually depart, we feel terrible pain… And then somehow we continue on, with one foot in front of the other, because we are still here among the living…

As we flow down the river of time, let us remember to appreciate all of our loved ones, because we never know when the current will separate us from them…

With deep love and painful grief,
StarFire Teja
