My sister, a widow, posted this video of Michelle Thaller on Facebook and even though I’m not currently grieving I found it so beautiful and wanted to share it with you. (Here is the YouTube link for those of you not on Facebook.)
As I begin my seventh decade I’m finding it even more important to step back and look for perspective and meaning to navigate life’s gifts and treacheries, and this video opened up so many doors of awakening for me. Pluto entering Aquarius next month will encourage a perspective that lifts us up from our small stories into a more transpersonal perspective, and physics attempts to understand how the Universe works. I hope you find this as relevant and soul-opening as I did. ❤️ (Photo is by astrophotographer Andrew McCarthy.)
Thank you – perfect timing!
I have been invited to be on Marie’s Table youtube channel tonight to talk about grief, losing our pets. Your sister may want to contact Marie as she is looking to have guests on with her each month to talk about this topic. https://youtu.be/NNShcmybk1Y
Thanks for all of your weekly eletters. Love the info and inspiration!
Sending healing thoughts to all in need of comfort.
Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, Jeanie! ❤️
Thank you SO much for sharing the video – it was heart touchingly filled with wisdom.
I’m so glad to hear you loved it, Pepper. ❤️
Thank you for your wise Uranus contribution. I am learning, listening and loving every lesson which life is offering to me. You are one of its great agents.
You’re so very welcome, Antje. I’m honored and grateful to be a part of this process! ❤️
Thank you, Lynn, for sharing this inspirational perspective on grief.
I too will soon enter my seventh decade and can well relate.
Pluto is transiting my 4th house in Capricorn, conjunct Chiron.
I’ve learned much from grief as my son, mother, and best friend,
passed from this planet during the opioid and COVID epidemic.
It has radically changed my worldview. Acceptance, and learning
to feel joy amongst suffering has been key for me.
So do appreciate your wise and heart-centered interpretations.
And beautiful approach to living in today’s ever-changing world.
Peace and blessings,
Nafia, I”m sorry to hear about your losses. This idea of acceptance is such an important and challenging lesson for this stage of life and I appreciate your taking the time to leave these inspirational comments. ❤️
Thank you for sharing this. “It won’t take the pain away, but it might show you a path out of the grief.” I love that, because I experienced it. First work, then painting, showed me a path. Now, as my mother lays on the couch, trying to pass, I see that all of us around her experience the time differently. The way through is so personal, what works for me will not help my father, my sister. We all come out the other side different than we went in.
Thank you for this Susan. There is a liminal fragility to witnessing the death process and as you say, to make that journey through to the other side. Many blessings for peace and comfort for your family. 🌺
Thank you, Lynn. This is truly beautiful. Grief is so personal. While we’re in the depths of its despair it is so hard to believe we can move on from it. Passing this on.
I know this is true as I suffered from depression and suicidal ideation for many years in my youth. Depression is different from grief, but in both cases and really in everything in life there is always a broader perspective that will bring new wisdom. ❤️
