* Loving and enjoying my daily unsweetened slightly melted dark chocolate rose to new heights recently.
In a quiet moment, a friend expressed the following:
"My relative was dying after some years of physical suffering, strain, and self-searching. The day came when he felt ready to let go. He had completed and edited his books and completed his projects. He felt at peace, his journey well done."
"Friends and relatives gathered in the room. Someone brought in a paper bag and handed it to me. I opened the crinkled paper and spied (wait for it) chocolates! A variety of chocolates greeted me. I pulled out a large bar, unwrapped it, and broke it into bits along the pre-marked creases and handed them around the room. Stillness, love, and peace abounded. "
"Instead of breaking bread, we had Chocolate Communion, a celebration for all of our sacred life journeys."
My friend continued: "A short bit of time passed. I 'heard' from him! I heard songs streaming into my head! I heard singing!"
I inquired, "Do you always hear music in your head?"
"No! This is new for me!"
Someone I know wrote in to Facebook celebrating her husband's birthday along with friends and relatives. He is no longer here on Earth....
What a positive loving connection with the great beyond!
* "There is no difference between the visible and the invisible. None."
Just yesterday over lunch another friend told me she and her husband sit down every afternoon to enjoy chocolate and tea.
