When you lose a loved one, you suffer. but if you know how to look deeply, you have a chance to realize that his or her nature is truly the nature of no birth, no death.
There is manifestation and there is the cessation of manifestation in order to have another manifestation.
You have to be very keen and very alert in order to recognize the new manifestation of just one person. But with practice and with effort you can do it.
So, taking the hand of someone who knows the practice, together do walking meditation.
Pay attention to all the leaves, the flowers, the birds and the dewdrops.
If you can stop and look deeply, you will be able to recognize your beloved one manifesting again and again in different forms.
You will again embrace the joy of life.
