New Age Spirituality Morning Has Been All Night Coming Part 8



“There is​ really nothing else we can do,” said the chief physician with a​ deep sigh.“We must now wait.”A horrible emptiness overcame me. We had not come this far to​ lose. First, losing all our material possessions years earlier,then losing my father*, and now the chance oflosing my wife? No! My heart screamed out in​ protest,as if​ by sheer force of​ will I could change the course of​ destiny. No! She will again recover as​ she has done so many times before. But a​ still, small voice whispered, “John, you may say good-bye now.”

I walked back into the room and looked at​ her sleeping so peacefully on the bed. They had administered some of​ the strongest pain killers to​ make her as​ comfortable as​ possible. Holding her hand,I whispered,“This is​ only a​ blink in​ eternity. Wherever you go, I will find you.” And then the tears came. Suddenly the room appeared to​ take on a​ brilliant glow, accompanied by the sound of​ music from afar.

I became quiet. Leaning over, I kissed her on the forehead, stepped back, took one last look, turned and walked out of​ the room. a​ few minutes later, a​ doctor walked up to​ me,shook her head sadly, and with deep sympathy in​ her voice, said,“She’s gone. I’m really very sorry.”On that summer day far from the little village where I was born,a light went out inside of​ me. The mounting darkness deepened into a​ hideous void and I could no longer see the sense or​ purpose of​ living. Life seemed such a​ fragile affair, here one moment and gone the next.

Yet, even as​ I wept, a​ nobler part of​ me was already whispering the hope that every soul needs on its journey home. a​ part of​ me knew that from the depths of​ despair would emerge an​ understanding far greater than any I had ever known. in​ the days and nights ahead, there would be times of​ sadness, moments of​ loneliness and periods of​ reflection. But ever afterwards, there would be a​ sense of​ purpose that would lead me on. Though no longer would I see her face or​ outer semblance, I knew that forever Mardai would be with me. I believe that we are all bound throughout eternity to​ that which we love; that neither heaven nor Earth can ever separate souls who choose to​ be together. One soul might go ahead for a​ while, but the other always catches up.

Thus ended one phase of​ my life as​ another began. All endings lead to​ new beginnings. The closing of​ one door foreshadows the opening of​ another, and yet, at​ times, I wonder why there are doors at​ all.
