A Story of Kindness From Around The World.
“I am old and she lives much too far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is, her next trip back will be for my funeral, ” he said.
“When you were saying good-bye I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough.’ May I ask what that means?”
He began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.” He paused for a moment and looking up as if trying to remember it in detail, he smiled even more.
“When we said ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with enough good things to sustain them,” he continued and then turning toward me he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory.
“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Good-bye.”
He then began to sob and walked away.
[ Original story by Bob Perks, in Chicken Soup For the Grieving Soul ]
We love God as much as we love ourselves,
Love only that which makes sense to you in the NOW moment.
Love only that which makes sense in the light of the rain in love.
Love God only as God not as you in distress,
Love that which makes us all love all, ONE.
Ive died a thousand deaths in the light of the many, the one.
Ive died in the light of knowing I cannot go back in home mast of love.
Love me now more than ever Father,
No… no more, no more deaths in silence,
No more tears,
No more rain,
No more darkness,
No more voids,
No more Tathata?
No more dying in God as God.
Die me now in effect for those that contend in my sacred space as God.
