This year in March I lost a dear friend.
She was my Yoga teacher and a friend for many years. She was young, not even made it to her forties.
She was battling with an illness which was maintainable and did not pose any immediate threat to her life. In fact she would have been on lifelong medication from conventional medicine point of view. Her quality of life compromised, however it was not considered fatal.
Destiny, Luck or Choices depends on how one looks at it landed her in a complicated situation. I was fortunate to have spent a lot of time with her and engaged with her situation for three weeks. She was recovery slowly but surely and on one Sunday morning of March she never woke up.
I write this to share with you what came up for me. I believe we all have essentially the same feelings , emotions when we lose a friend . This may help you if God forbid you ever experience something like this or if you have had such an experience before it will help you to understand that you feelings that so personal are also universal.
Here are certain Natural thoughts and feelings
I will share what I am doing. It is what I think works for me. Perhaps it will be helpful to you.
Be kind to yourself, Gentle and Patient. I also remind myself a line from a book called Buddha’s sword I read long back. This too shall pass.
I think, I feel and that makes me want to share...
