Whether someone has passed or is still living, pausing to reflect on all they have shared is an essential element of maintaining a bond with that person. Time is a fleeting thing and even though we may feel we do not have enough hours in the day, it is important to take a few minutes to just be present, to be still, and remember. If we could take this time each and every day, imagine how much fuller and more enriched our lives would be. Imagine how much stronger the bonds we have with our loved ones could grow.
At this time, I’d like to ask you to take a moment to pause, remain silent, and think deeply about those who you would like to remember and honour. Send your energy out to them and give thanks. Remember what is beautiful about them, what makes you laugh, what you love most about their nature, and simply smile. Hold this love in your heart and then send it out into the world. Let us all be grateful for each other – friend or stranger, loved one or foe. Let us remember that we are all one and that we are all here together.
