He was only 15 when life departed from his young body. His ancient soul probably knew. But his friends and family on earth did not know that; before a blink of an eye, he was gone.
Emotions storm through your chest as you remember his life, his smile, his way of making jokes in classroom. His style. Like a sharp knife stuck somewhere between your lungs, you feel your own life shaking. "It is not fair", you think, and tears crowd your eyes.
Gone too soon. All children are always gone too soon, I think.
For those of us left behind, here on planet Earth, here are some words that I hope find a nest in your heart to consider.
Our life on Earth is a journey, and each of us has a unique pattern of soul growth beyond what our mind can comprehend. Only the soul knows, but we don't remember from the soul and the spirit until we are liberated from our bodies.
Physical death is just leaving behind the container- the body- when it cannot maintain within the spirit any longer. It never means that the soul, the spirit, the mental or astral bodies are gone too. Only the physical and lower body is gone. But that is only matter or material substance. What gives life to a body is its spirit. And the spirit never dies, because they are eternal.
We are trapped into our bodies, meaning that after being born and as we grow up we don't remember who we truly are, where we come from and what is our mission while on earth.
That is where the journey starts: to rediscover what can we do with what we have, while we are here, with what we know.
That young boy will be greatly missed, but his life was at its fullest with the time he had, while he was here, with what he knew.
His life should inspire us. He will live within us forever.
The spirit always leaves a footprint of its beautiful essence in everything and everybody he/she meets while on its journey through life.
This young teenager is gone, but his journey remains with us inspiring a new dimension of what life is about: being the best that we can be with what we have,with what we know,with what we feel.
Let your tears run. If you need to cry, do it. If you miss him, say it. If you need to talk, open your heart and mind.
Someone once said that emotions are just like waves: you cannot stop them, but you can chose which one to ride.
Part of our journey in life is to learn about our own emotions, our fears, our insecurities, our thoughts.
He gave us a gift with his presence on earth.
Let's live today not taking nothing for granted, to express our love and friendship, not to hold animosity for something that will not matter in a few years.
Let's live today to the best that we can be.
