“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.”
― John O’Donohue
In the end all that matters is love. It is the only thing you can take with you. That is why, when my dad lay dying earlier this week, we made very sure he knew how loved he was. We also reassured him that we would be OK and that he had nothing to worry about. He had worked hard all his life to make sure we were alright and it was time to let go of that responsibility.
After he died and my sister sat at his bedside in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, the love she had shown him during his last few days came back to her in a wave of love that washed over her body and gave her a sensation of utter joy and peace. At the same time, the candle she had lit for his soul went out completely for about 10 seconds and then self-reignited as the blissful feeling subsided.
On the other side, we don’t get tangled up in a web of confusion. On the other side we will see clearly that love is all that matters. Because all you have with you is your own soul – Love’s own child.
Love and Blessings,
