Change –it’s the constant of our lives. With every stage of living, we lose people, places and things that we love. We may not lose them to death, but saying ‘good-bye’ to those who are leaving us, saying ‘until we meet again’, ‘farewell’ to places, things or those left behind as we journey forth -each is an event which is similar to death. In each, we die, we end something, just a little.
Each event, each change is worthy of remembrance, gratitude, acceptance, and each deserves to be released. We must let go and move on; it is a part of living and dying, after all, there are many new people, places, things and animal companions just waiting for us to meet, and to love. New life, new journeys, stories, relationships, etc. emerge from that which leaves us. Think of a hillside after a forest fire. It usually springs beautiful flowers through the ashen laid hills of the burnt ash, it is a vital part of life’s cycle of renewal.
Let us open the doors of our hearts and embrace all of our goodbyes and hello’s, let us carry them with us in our hearts and memories.
And let us be well, and fare well!!
“Blessings on your journey”
One thought on “Farewell”
Mark, this is one of your best ratings. I’ve always had a problem with change, but have a different view of it after I read this. Keep up the good work my friend.
