What’s Love Got To Do With It?
Rudy is a survivor and a lover of life. A message that he gave me right after he transitioned from his physical body was “Live life. Survive!” You see Rudy is a survivor. I met him 5 years ago when he was living behind the dumpster at my father’s assisted living facility. He was starving but so filled with joy. He loved humans. Rudy said that he survived despite all the odds and look what happened. The last five years of his life were paradise. He said that if he had not survived, he would not have experienced his life with us. We never know what is just around the corner, so live and survive.
Imagine your hands in prayer position or Gassho. Your united hands represent a heart (and kind of looks like an upside down heart).
I brought my hands down in front of me so fingers were no longer pointing up to the heavens but out and away from my heart center. Then I was shown to open my hands from prayer position to look like an opened book. That represented my broken heart but it also represents an open heart. My heart was cracked wide open. What is inside of the heart? Love!
Inside the heart shell is a jewel called love.
I “saw” a gel like substance inside both halves of the heart shell that glowed a neon blue color. That substance was love, the love we feel for the one that has died and is now in spirit. I saw my shattered heart pieces everywhere. Inside or on top of each piece was the glowing blue substance that is unconditional love.
Rudy showed me that when grief and love come together, we are forever changed. When our heart is open from grief, our heart is also open to love. To feel this kind of love is to know our true selves and to know pure unconditional love. To hurt this deeply, we have loved that deeply. Grief fades but love grows and expands beyond time and space.
