If a dear one dies, it always hurts. But if you understand that everything has its purpose and that this life-time is but a wink of the eye compared to eternity, you may come to terms with it.
Yes, if we believe in only one life-time and then death and nothing more then life may seem very cruel and meaningless.
But if we look at it as a learning experience where we keep coming back to this Earth until we learn what we were supposed to learn, if we trust the Law, the higher Justice, if we learn to live in Love, then life may be beautiful.
That doesn't mean that we won't suffer any more. But we will get over it much faster and it won't be ruining our lives. We will be able to come to terms with life and with everything it brings along. And this is humility. Then we may live and die fulfilled and reconcilied.
Yes, Merrick, I agree with you. The main thing is to believe. Our attitude depends on our position, it is predetermined by our belief.
Some people are able to have such a strong faith that they don't feel pain.
