Yesterday, our family, Carol’s friends, my friends, our friends, and friends I met face-to-face for the first time gathered to celebrate Carol’s life. The day provided another perfect opportunity to observe my life non-dualistically. Although there will be other steps of letting go, this was the last, scheduled event in the process. The day was a blend of joy and sadness. I had two of Carol’s pictures enlarged and they showed her face in such detail that I couldn’t look at them without tears flowing. But I wanted the day to about joy and celebration, not sadness. Carol’s life reflected in pictures reflected on the wall and music she loved played in the background. Then Ann Roach and Doug Matson set a perfect tone with some of Carol’s favorite songs ranging from “Evergreen” to “It’s not easy being green”; music that reflected my feelings. Near the end of the day, I stood, looking around at the people Carol and I love and who love us in return and realized how very blessed and fortunate I am. Few people get to experience the love I have had and continue to have in my life. Living life from a perspective on non-duality allows me to recognize the joy in the midst of sadness and the gifts in the midst of pain. Yesterday was a really good day.
