“To all our relations who journeyed ahead...”

Good morning, my friends. Last night, Amazon Sage dream travelled to many places in the world where she heard people crying out for their lost loved ones; mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts, and spouses. In low laments some pleaded for Creator’s answer with words like “Why?” and “How?” begging to understand reasons for death and suffering in their darkest times. Others felt anguish, sometimes screaming their sorrow; anger beyond words, since their loved ones had gone. Some simply sat, shell-shocked and silent, unable to respond to the sweetest of suggestions. All over the world, people are crying and I can’t help but wonder what can be done to ease our suffering.
In that moment of wondering an answer unfolded; not “the” answer for sure but one that might help. Here’s what I heard: “Go to your loved ones, whether living or dead, and sit with them quietly. Do not talk or advise. Simply listen to what they tell you, not preconceived notions of what they must feel. You know them best so your body’s a conduit. Be a witness to their pain and silently encourage them, from their heart to yours. If you can, write down what they tell you on a paper or in your mind. Do not shrink from their telling even if it means you feel less guilty. Because there is a secret to dying that not many know.... 
When they’ve passed on before us, they no longer feel sorrow, or pain, or resentment, or the tortures we know. When one goes on before us, there is peace, only peace. Unless, that dear person took his own life. Please, tell me it isn't so. Because in that case, the sufferer needs our forgiveness to help them ease their great sadness so they finally know the love they thought had gone missing... Because every soul is important, whether famous or not. No one is unknown to Creator. And when one person falls, we all fall a little and must pick ourselves up, as we would pick up a child.”
Back to sleep, Amazon Sage returned to my body and I awakened soon after, feeling light lifting sorrow, a freedom from pain. From the pain of those before me and the suffering of those around us, I know all are still here and waiting to be heard. So to all my relations, both living and dead, I send you deep blessings and thank you for your healing, knowing you surround us with wisdom and honor. And we'll continue living, life’s most sacred work, together. Domo Arigato and Aho. So be it, Amen.
