     Being human and 89 years old, I have gone through painful losses of friends, brothers, sisters, parents, in-laws, brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws, nephews and nieces, wife and a few highly evolved human beings. I do not need to convince anyone how much pain is created in our heart by such big losses. I have grieved, endured and accepted their immortality. I am also sensing the shadow of the inevitable life- taker death. I feel sad knowing very well that I will depart from my beloved families and friends and will cause pain in their hearts. When such thoughts come to my mind, I mindfully process them and let them go on their own. Living each day this way, makes me appreciate every act of kindness and love that others do for me and what comes out from my heart. I see  glimpses of light and experience  the fullness of living lovingly. I feel bliss, deep contentment and deep sense of gratitude. Loving, serving being kind and laughing and dancing  effortlessly with others and even by myself with none with  me or around me is very uplifting.

    I am getting a little wiser as I am growing realizing the transitory nature of all living beings, Recognizing, accepting and letting go of losses liberates me from my self-created human suffering and lets me relate to  life fully as it is unfolding.

    With love and gratitude,

    Jagdish P Dave

     Oh, it is so nice to hear these heartfelt words from the heart of your heart. It gives solace to the worried, the weary, the wobbly and fearful like me who aches for connection to another's truth, and yours feels like home. 89 and fine, just fine. Good on you, to you, for you, and always with you. Grief flows through and around us, as does joy, luckily enough.
