Being a reincarnationist has always made death less imposing for me. This is even more true now that I understand energetics and our existence as divine spirit energy. I am always sad for the people left behind, but for the departed I am so very happy. We may touch transcendent bliss in fleeting moments as human forms but I can barely imagine what it is to exist entirely as spirit able to assimilate with all divine energy. Even for those whose life has been harsh and perhaps unfulfilled… the spirit self can choose to have another human experience. Another chance for the growth they may have missed this time around. We cannot hope to have every experience in one lifetime. Ultimately we want to have every experience; so we come back life after life for more, different, and new experiences.
No lifetime is wasted and no-one leaves before their soul decides it is ready. We may not be ready to see them go; it is only for us to cherish the experience of having known them. Good bye little brother, you were loved and will be missed.
