When I was thinking about what I could write, I was distracted by a junk-email. While deleting it, my view went over the many folders of my inbox. One of those holds some very precious emails of a blogger who became a dear friend on WordPress. It was touching and deeply moving to read those emails again after 5 years.
When we met on WordPress, I was impressed by the depth of his poetry and his view on life and beneath. After a little while, I learned that he had cancer at a very late stage. That’s when we emailed at times because catching up with WordPress was often too exhausting for him. After about half a year, he stopped emailing and disappeared from WordPress. A few months later I heard that he had died.
I admired him for his way of dealing with his situation. He never moaned, he never complained, he never blamed anyone. Instead, he was encouraging, supportive, compassionate. His energy was light and embracing. He accepted his situation and aside from it, he only focused on how to give as long as it was possible. Whatever he wrote was filled with a deep appreciation for life and for its little wonders which he recognized as big blessings. He was able to open the view for a bigger picture and at the same time, for little details which make that big picture.
This post is not meant as a tribute or as another Corona-lesson post. It simply made me see how a person who chased its ego away can make room to let its soul take over. It made me see that what the soul leaves will remain. His emails, although 5 years old, have not lost a bit of their strong and loving energy and their messages are still going as deep as they did when I read them for the first time. Maybe with the insight about their persistence they have become even more meaningful.
We don’t need to be sick or close to death to reach such a state being. We don’t need to be reminded by life and by what it throws at us. We can be in that energy from this very moment on. We can reach it the best and the fastest when we think about what good could we do for this world. That will open a door. A door to ourselves. When we walk through it, we discover a place so much more powerful and more meaningful. The feeling of “I Am”, of “You Are”, of “We Are”. We are souls who came here to learn and we are provided a paradise. Let’s enjoy this paradise and be grateful for everyone living in it. Let’s understand that we all are here for the same reason.
Let’s live, let’s love, let’s smile, let’s support, let’s heal, let’s be!
Now I know why I got distracted…
