How are you doing on day 17 of lockdown? It does seem like the lockdown will be extended. So let us brace ourselves and not think about it. What has to happen, will happen. We have no control really--over circumstances or people.
People come into our lives at certain times, and our life changes. People also vanish from our lives at certain points--maybe they break up, may be they stop talking to you for no reason, maybe they die. Our life changes again.
Our life is like a river which ebbs and flows towards a final destination, at which point our soul leaves our physical bodies. The number of books I have read on this topic are numerous. All of them say similar things--that we form connections with people at certain point in our lives, and when the 'karmic debt' is paid off, they vanish.
I have read all the books of Dr. Brian Weiss.
If you haven't read them, I highly recommend them; Begin with Many Lives, Many masters. I have also read Sonia Choquette, Shakti Gawain. Esther and Jerry Hicks, Ian Stevenson's research papers , Deepak Chopra, Khorshed Bhavnagari and many more whose names I forget. You can find some of them in my highlights Books 1 and Books 2 on my Instagram.
I used to be a skeptic, going only by scientific proof and 'rationalising' everything, until some very unusual things (I blogged about one of them) started happening to me. They changed me in many ways. I grew. I also started meditating which gave me deeper insights into so many things which I would not even have imagined.
There are some excellent ted talks on this subject too. I recommend these three :
I see dead people by Dr. Christopher Kerr.
From life to death, beyond and back by Thomas Fleischmann
Dying to be me: Anita Moorjani
If you are interested in this subject, do watch the above. (I have linked them all to make it easy for you)
And read the books that talk about this!
It's a great way to spend time during this #Lockdown.
If you have read any books on this subject, if you have any thoughts on it, do leave me a comment in my comment box. If you are reading this in your inbox, please head over to my blog. and leave me a comment, rather than dashing off a mail to me (which will probably get buried in the deluge of mails I receive).
I will see you here again, tomorrow.
Until then, think of all the people you feel a connection with, close your eyes, and send them warmth and love.
Take good care of yourself.
Lots of love
