******Til Death do us part******

 

Death!! Just the sound of the word or the way we say it, we can hear the permanency that this word brings. We all walk a path through this journey of life, everything we see around us is also walking their paths through this ¬†journey, the plant life, the animals etc… Are also breathing in the air to fill their lungs as we do, so they can move forward along the journey. True there are many ways that can strip us of our ability to walk through this journey unscathed, Diseases, natural disasters, are just a couple ways that can alter our way of walking our paths, even the plant life and the animals can be altered from moving forward as well. As much as we would like this journey to last, the reality of it is, everything comes to a close, which leaves the ones closest to us, grieving and feeling the pain of their loss.

” Til Death do us part”, these are the words that the Priest says the day you become one with your soul mate, but within the Society of today, we don’t really truly understand these words, til it becomes too late. Nobody wants to think of what is to come down the road, as we are too busy living in the now and to busy just trying to make our lives better moving forward, then we get consumed within the World around us, that we totally forget of living our lives to be comfortable, instead we get stuck with the idea that, we need to be better than all that is around us, not too mention, we also get consumed that it’s all about me, which we then forget about the we’s that are walking their paths, of this same journey we are on. When the Priest says these words, we don’t even let the thought of these words sink in, so we than can truly understand the true meaning of the words, ” Til Death do us part”.

Death is a very powerful word, that comes to each one of us at some point along this journey. Whether it comes to us, or whether it comes to a loved one, or even maybe someone within our circle along our paths. Death is the end of something or someone and when Death comes, it brings much pain and hurt as well. It is this pain and hurt that can change us drastically if we don’t truly understand the word of death,

Is Death really permanent? How do we truly know we are at peace when Death comes? We do know that when Death comes, those around us grieve with much pain and hurt, but is our pain and hurt really gone? We can not truly say what Death is like because for us when it comes, it is permanent for which our ending is truly and ending from walking our path through this journey of life. There are so many questions surrounding the word of Death, but until death comes knocking at our door and enters into our lives, we can not truly answer these questions surrounding the word of Death and when Death takes us from this journey, now it is too late for us to understand the word, as our ending has come.

Everything around us as well as we ourselves are full of life as we walk our paths through this journey, everything we do along our paths, helps us survive and become stronger along our journey. we start out this journey frail and tiny, as we depend on another to help us survive and grow, then we become strong enough to walk our paths alone, til we get much older and once again, become frail and depend on another for our survival. Some may be taken into Death a bit earlier than others, again we truly don’t understand why, as the rest of us that are left, get torn between the pain, the hurt and the why’s. ” everything happens for a reason”, until we truly understand the reason, we will never understand the true power of the word of Death.

 

” Til Death do us part are just words, but the word of Death is permanent and our final point along our path of this journey”

” Until we except the word Death we may never understand the true power of the word Death”

” Look deeply into the World of Nature and not just into the beauty, as there is also much Death that keeps everything changing in front of your eyes”

” We may never truly understand the word of Death and never get the answers of it’s many questions, which keeps us in the now and moving forward to be better”

” Death is a powerful word that brings us great pain and hurt”

” Everything around us and we ourselves are full of life, til that day that Death comes knocking at our door”

 

Til Death do us part……….

” They can no longer die, for they are like Angels and they are the Children of God, because they are the ones who will rise”.

LK 20:36

 

There are so many unanswered questions surrounding the Death of anything even we as the People of the World. Where do we go after death? Does our soul really lift up out of our bodies? Why do some last longer than others? Why does it seem the Good always leave us sooner then later along this journey of life? There are these and many more questions about Death, only we never really think of them, because we fear death as the final ending, to us walking our paths along this journey of life.

” Get busy living, or get busy dying”. This was a quote within the greatest movie of all time in, Shawshank Redemption. This quote is so correct in many ways as we walk our paths of this journey, from the time of our Birth until we reach living within Society on our own, we are too busy living and making a life for ourselves, then when we reach a ripe old age, we then get busy preparing for that time when we are taken from this Society, some never make it to that ripe old age and some may live well beyond those years ( whatever the correct age is?). Through death and when that time comes, what are we really thinking and what are we really feeling deep inside ourselves? This is a question that can only be truly answered at the time that our journey is about to come to a close. Now when a loved one passes and we see them at the time of their last breathe, or someone close to us passes that has helped us in many ways, those that are left have to grieve and we as Humans grieve in our own way, this Grieving process brings us a lot of pain and sorrow, which unless we process it correctly, it can and will have us continue this journey with more bumps and bruises, then we care to except.

Now as we walk our paths of this journey of life, we try to walk it correctly, but there are many variables that come to us at the cross roads and these variables will control us if we let them, when these variables take control of us, we then get lost within the clouds of our judgments and become someone we truly are not. This Person that we think is ourselves we then move forward not knowing of our true direction, we move forward doing for ourselves and totally not acknowledging of those that are around us, everything then becomes for me and we totally put out of our heads that, there are many that walk a path through this journey of life. I understand that we all walk our own path, but we all walk them through one journey and this journey is, the journey of life.

When someone gets taken from us through Death, at first we become shocked then as the shock goes away and we come back to reality, we then get hit with the sadness of the death and ask ourselves why? Some may cry, some may not know how to cry properly, but the crying only helps us heal properly and ease the pain that comes to us through death. It is we the ones that survive the death of the one that was taken from us, that feel the loss and in some ways harder then others, as the one that lies in state, who really knows where they have gone? Death is permanent and I think that is what we fear the most? The second part we fear is the fact that, none of us can truly say, what happens after we are taken from this life? We may have an educated guess, but it is still just a guess, death comes to all of us at some point, whether it is we suffering the death, or a loved one, or maybe someone that we become close to, as they have helped us in many ways, but none the less death will affect us all at some point, as we walk our path through this journey of life.

Death is something that will affect us all at some point, which is why we all have to get busy living in the now………..correctly and not just for ourselves. God’s love is within us all and that is the warmth that fills our heart, not just the blood that flows through our veins, as God fills us with his love, it then becomes up to us to spread this love with each other, so we can not only get busy living, but we can also be ready for that time when our journey comes to a close, instead of simply getting busy dying. Are we really ready for that time of Death? We may think we are, but when it comes it scares the living crap right out of us, this is where the fear comes into play, because we fear the unknown and death is all about the unknown, no matter how well prepared we think we are. Instead of looking at death as an unknown, or being something as being permanent, why not celebrate the life that has died, so we all that have been affected by the death, can grieve properly and as we grieve properly, then we all can learn to accept death as something that happens at the end of a journey and maybe we won’t be so fearful of death? Although this journey through life has no road map and may end differently for all of us, but at least through the celebration of life, we may accept death better, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, being stronger and better and within peace and happiness.

 

” ” Get busy living or get busy dying”, great movie and great quote from the movie of Shawshank Redemption”

” Death is full of the unknown and it is the unknown that we fear the most about death”

” Nobody knows truly why some are taken sooner than others, only God truly knows and we need to have complete faith in him to accept death better”

” Through death we miss deeply of the ones that get taken from us, which makes the grieving process so important to each of us”
