For Traversing the Sacred Passages of Life
Our hearts grieve in the face of our losses, and the depth and breadth of our grief may surprise us. We may wonder how we can bear the pain we experience when we lose who or what we most value. Our grieving heart is a bridge between the world of the finite and infinite. If we allow it, our grieving heart will carry us to our Souls. In so doing, grief gifts us with the transformation of our perceptions whereby we come to know ourselves as eternal.
