We attended a funeral yesterday in which a lovely eulogy by one of my friend’s daughters, made a very gentle but deep statement. She said she could be angry with many different people for her mother’s death. Then she said she’d decided not to do that because: IT WASN’T THE PLACE WHERE LOVE RESIDED. It wasn’t where she could be at peace. That’s a bit of a wow.
At the time, I agreed with it like I’d heard it many times before. It was common sense. The trick is though, can we decide to let our anger or sadness go, and choose the higher ground? Choose love? How much more peace we’d all have in our hearts if we can take our negative feelings, acknowledge them, and let them go.
That hit me in a new way. I need to put that on post-it notes all around my home, because that is exactly what I’d like to do. Choose love and let the feelings that do come in with our challenges in life, simply go…
Do you think this is a wise thought that her daughter shared yesterday? How does it strike you? There are opposite trains of thought where we need to feel all our feelings and decide what they are trying to tell us. What is the balance? It’s human nature to struggle with this.
