Dozens Of Clergy Hope To Get People Talking About Death

My volunteer time at Hospice this week was spent with long time friends as they said goodbye to their valiant peaceful warrior, 50 year old Trish. It was harder to tap into the equanimity I usually feel in my time there...and yet it was a tender gift to be in the presence of a family's grief in all it's messy, heart wrenching depth of beauty. Yes, it's hard to have those conversations, but they are so important. This article talks about how some places of worship are helping open up the dialogue.

Ninety percent of Americans believe it’s important to talk about the end of life with loved ones. Just 30 percent have done it.

"One of life's most fulfilling moments occurs in the split-second when the familiar is suddenly transformed into the dazzling aura of the profoundly new." ~Edward B. Lindaman

And isn't this exactly what we celebrate in all of life's moments...weddings, births, deaths...the moment of transformation.

Delightful snowday activity- chatting with prospective wedding couples. I feel warmer already just thinking about summer wedding season!

"Most of us have been given many more blessings than we have received. ... We may have filled our lives so full of other things that we have no room to receive our blessings. One of my patients once told me that she has an image of us all being circled by our blessings, sometimes for years, like airplanes in a holding pattern at an airport, stacked up with no place to land. Waiting for a moment of our time, our attention."
- Rachel Naomi Remen, My Grandfather's Blessings

From my One Spirit thought for the day...what an image...

"Every person has some gift and some trouble, and some mature deep awakened part of soul, and some other part that is blind. This is how we pollinate each other in the human spring. We all need each other."

- Mark Nepo, in an interview with Tami Simon, "On Being the Poem," Sounds True

And what I have found, is often the gift and the trouble are entwined...happy pollinating. :-)
