I am grateful that while I have been going through the grieving
process for my best friend, I have mercifully been spared the
gratuitous advice of the useless variety such as I have been
subjected to in times past. It's bad enough to hear about
something like "God's will" enough times that for a while I
considered him an enemy. The worst of all was the advice that
I was supposed to "let go".
I was beginning to wonder if I had to keep "letting go", does that mean that there is nothing that I get to keep? And if that is true, then should I live my life accordingly and simply see what I can gain for me? I'm glad that I didn't try that path.
There really is a better way, and it balances the need to hold on with the need to avoid living in the past or clinging to a past that no longer exists.
And a good balance is possible. And an active spiritual life really helps!
