Today I learned that an acquaintance of several years recently took her own life. Intuitively I always knew she wasn’t happy, and watched as she looked externally and unsuccessfully for fulfillment and purpose. My heart aches for both the sadness that led to her choice as well as for the grieving family she leaves behind. Sensing that she has not yet moved beyond the veil, I lit a candle and placed it in the window when I got home this evening.
May the eternal and unwavering light of your soul ascend to the highest levels of peace and love.
Go now, and leave this sadness and turmoil behind. You are free.
In accordance with your free will, So Mote It Be.
–From my Book of Shadows
Beloved one, you are dead, but you are not alone.
We are here with you, the beloved dead await you.
You go from love into love. Carry with you only love.
May our love carry you and open the way.
