Trusting the Divine
Yesterday I witnessed a 31 year old mother of two young children struggle to remain here on this earth. The cancer that has ravaged her body for the past 11 years is finally winning the battle. I helped with her care and tried to soothe her emotional pain while the medicine soothed her physical pain. There was so much I wanted to impart to her, but my words of wisdom fell short, because I had none. I cannot know truly what she is feeling, I can only imagine from my own perspective, how would I feel if I knew I had to leave my children behind? Nothing I could say would make this better, so instead I looked deep into her coffee brown eyes and prayed for both of us. I prayed that the Angels made their presence known, that her suffering was lessened, that her spirit would embrace her journey when the time came, that she would know in her heart that her children would be loved and cared for. In essence I prayed to “Trust the Divine”. This is not a new concept, but it is one of my more frequent mantras these days. Trusting that there is a greater purpose to all of this, the suffering, the sadness, the seemingly early departures, trusting the Divine Wisdom of a loving being, trusting my prayers are heard, trusting the small light within me has purpose, trusting the challenges, the spiritual growth all has meaning, beautiful deep stardust meaning. My heart weeps as my soul grows, trusting the Divine.
