I once wrote a paper on Thanatology. It is the scientific study of death. I decided to write this paper as it was from my own personal experience after losing so many loved ones and I wanted to research and explore the science and behaviors surrounding this sensitive topic with empathy. The paper I wrote did not do well because at that particular time, I was still grieving the loss of my mother. The thoughts did not transition well and I was unprepared to present the research, analysis, experience and theory in front of an audience. Can this topic be presented in this present day? Yes. Will I ever present it again, maybe?
Just because we fail at something before does not mean we’ll fail if we try again. Maybe next time it will have greater success, make better sense. Maybe next time, there will be more thought and emotional intelligence and most of all compassion. When humans are in feelings, we are still in the experience that is teaching and growing us. It is when that experience or circumstance has healed for humans to rediscover that the heart is now ready to share; although at a particular time, it was not.
My eyes have seen someone transition from life to death before. As may have you. At first, I was afraid. Then, there is a universal, powerful energy that electrifies and instantly changes the environment and human perception. For some, a renewed strength. For many others, complete loss and disconnect. Every experience is unique.
Perhaps it’s why we can write cohesively or face our challenges directly, fearlessly with resilience. Mind your heart and soul. The story sometimes is postponed until the circle of completion, right experience and mind stability to share. And the love, it stays. Then joy is also found again. Speak Life.
