What is death?

What is Death?
Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without affect,
without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you,
for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner.
All is well.

 Emotional pain is a sign of aliveness.All emotions, painful or not, are a sacred part of the human condition. They are also the major force at work in the Law of Attraction. When we feel anything we have the privilege to witness a powerful form of creative life energy move through us. It is when we are devoid of any feeling or emotion that we are very much the opposite of alive, we are despondent, indifferent, like an empty shell. Feeling is living!."-Bec Robbins

 Listen. Can you hear it? The music. I can hear it everywhere. In the wind… in the air… in the light. It’s all around us. All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do … is listen."-August Rush

The calm before the storm
     Ever have one of those days where everything seems to go wrong or you are just generally feeling frustrated? Just one of those days? You can shift your mood even if it seems like that,and you can do it a way that is natural,and easy. Gratitude.  Easily guide your thoughts to what you HAVE achieved today,instead of what is not yet working for you. Can't do that? Maybe the day has had that little of achievement in your eyes right now,in which case,think in general what do you have to be grateful for. This will relax you and shift your mood.
     Be patient with yourself. Sometimes,slow and steady wins the race. Keep your focus. Be happy. Stay in the moment.
