Beyond the tears, hurt and pain, there is hope.

The deceased and the bereaved? Accidents do happen? The question is does it have to be this way? Isn't there a better way? Are we open to it? Why not?

During these times, on whom can you depend? Then, why are you out looking? How stupid are people? How deceitful are people? But you still need people to love and learn. Not many, but there are some.

What I see brings grief to my soul. I am filled with distress, grief and fury, because I have done a disgraceful thing — a thing I regret. My eyes have grown dim with grief; my whole frame is but a shadow. I went about mourning as though I have lost hope. I bowed my head in grief as though my weeping would make a difference. All my days my work is pain and grief; even at night my mind does not rest. This too is meaningless.

Who is the helper of the fatherless? A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son grieves. He who winks maliciously causes grief, and a chattering fool comes to ruin. Even in laughter the heart may ache, and joy may end in grief. If a man pampers his servant from youth, he will bring grief in the end. For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.

Some times we over look the obvious. Grief-- tears, hurt and pain are part of life, but be challenged not to sorrow as if there is no hope. When we eat, we don't think about the hungry or the sacrifice made for our fine dining? When we drink, we don't think about the thirsty? When we drive, we don't drive responsibly? We have made it a "me world" and we have to do "me". When we have time to enjoy each other, we would rather spend it belly-aching about any little thing, taking time and life for granted. But when it is all snatched away?

Grief is healthy because it moves us forward into whatever direction we choose. Depression is unhealthy because it keeps you stuck in pain. Do not wait; enjoy "your" company to the fullest while you can! "Your day" will surely come, how will you want your people to respond? Why?

With compassion so great is unfailing love. In this day, gather the lame; assemble the exiles and those brought grief. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and good because a new world of challenges await you. No regrets!

Gradual retirement from active life and an increased dedication to spiritual life! All of this from reading and writing.
