Grief is the price we pay for love. – Queen Elizabeth II
Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life. – Anne Roiphe
Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the powers of the mind. – Marcel Proust
Nothing remains constant in this world. In our life there comes a time when we feel the loss of someone close to our heart, it creates an emptiness – a dark side of life, an incompleteness – a sudden pause in a crowded moment.
In those moments a bright sunny day or even a free moment seems empty to you.
Everything that we feel in those moments seems sad to us, all those questions and feeling comes in front of your eyes. All those memories and attachments, in fact, we suffer because we miss those good moments. We try to compare those moments with our present, but no matter what we do, we knew that we would never be able to bring those moments back.
Moments like this remind us why we need to appreciate our present.
In fact, those moments which seem reasonable to you might make a huge impact in the future.
You never know what time holds for you, in fact, the time is like a river – it never stops for anyone. No matter who you’re – where ever you come from – nor it matters your opinion, it flows on.
If you’re surfing from grief and sadness, know that you are missing another moment from your life. You never know what good for you and what’s bad. You can only be able to live at the moment, create and work at this time – make this moment awesome for your whole life.
If you’re sad for someone – know that love doesn’t mean sadness – love means happiness. If you love someone, let them be free, better to see your loved ones free from your grief and sadness. We love someone because we want to see them happy. Do you think that your grief will make your loved ones happy?
In fact, our life thrives in two ways, one that is the illusion and other that is divine, and love is divine; all the other things are illusions. We take part in illusion to support our divine. In the other way around, we find our nectar in love; and then love becomes our support system in this chaotic world.
Sometimes when we love someone with our full heart, and when we lose them, we trap ourselves in the illusion. We think that we will find our happiness within those illusions, but the truth is that your love is within you all the others are just illusions when you realize this simple truth you appreciate your past, you started to become happier than you were ever before.
