The act of preparedness is a blessing and a characteristic critical to survival. While, yes, we can prepare for the passing of someone close to us, we should find acceptance before the fact. Recognizing and preparing for crossing over is something each of us I'm sure sees as a big deal, given we're each going to cross over in time.
Do not be afraid to prepare and also to live in the moment.
Often, we're taught to roll with the flow which essentially is to live in the moment. Of course, living in the moment is good, yet where critical situations are needed such as survival, we do well to utilize both ways of thoughts. So how do you both be prepared and live with each moment that comes along seeking joy and peace in every waking and sleeping hour?
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” – Benjamin Franklin
Take Care of Yourself
Being afraid is smart to prepare or be aware of danger, but it is also dangerous to fear too much. Which of us can control the passing of a loved one? If we were able to, no one would have to die physically. There is an unknown divine element to our passing. To fight it or not to prepare would be as if we're working against gravity, it’s just not natural and could be harmful.
There are many ways of thinking as to where we go upon our passing. To discuss the possibilities would be endless, and to be certain of any one way being right, foolish to say the least. It's in love that I say, "To all those who miss someone dear to them, we bid you the peace that the divine presses upon me also to shed joy and grace to our younger ones who are watching us in our sufferings, learning to mature on their own too. Do well with your grief as you travel, and to many a day may you endure for yourself, so that you too can cross over in peace."
Being prepared is considered the key to success as it develops resilience and flexibility.
"Success is where preparation and opportunity meet" – Bobby Unser
