A relative passed away this morning. He has diabetes and has had dialysis for the past three years. He is still relatively young, around forty years old. I sympathize with the sadness of the family left behind, but I also understand that the essence of our presence on earth is only the way we learn to purify our souls. To illustrate that, let me place a quote from a book written by a writer from Bali.
I heard crying in a prayer of sadness for your suffering. I feel that, my child. But in my unlimited power, I still do not always have the power to eliminate all your suffering instantly. For you alone have chosen this type of suffering as the way you understand life.
Indeed suffering is only suffering for your mind, not for your true self as a soul. The desire to be free from suffering is only the desire of your mind and body that no longer holds it back. But for your Soul, that’s the bitterness you need to experience purification.
You have long chosen the role of your own life along with all the sorrows you will experience in your chosen body. You choose all of that to be able to feel the perfection of life filled with all duality. In this life you choose, you are learning to accept grief and all other duality as part of your desires. Then feel all sadness in suffering and joy in your happiness. It will enrich your experience of the heart.
I just make myself the goal of achievement so that you are able to accept and feel grief and all duality of life in the same way. If you succeed in surpassing all of them in a calm and flowing mood in a sincere sense of belonging, you are approaching my desires.
