#goodmourning

I woke up this morning and realized that I was dreaming about one of my elders, and I was faced with the fact that he had passed away. At first I was sad , but then remembering some of the lessons that he had given me during our time together I began to celebrate and it made it easier for me.
Mourning is a process that we must go through in order to let go of what was and face what is. Mourning helps us embrace the present moment whole. When we refuse to mourn we hold onto old things that no longer serve a purpose in our life. They begin to weigh us down and make our journey harder than it needs to be.
I realized why the words mourning and morning sound so much alike, because they are in essence the same thing. When we first awake a part of us wants to stay sleep, because sleep is comfortable, and in most cases in the western world it is safe, but the fact is that we must get up at some point and face the day, So we have to say goodbye to the dream world, push the covers off, rise, get prepared and enter the world. If we enter the world still holding on to the dreams that we had the night before, they rob us of our power to fully interact with the day. The same thing applies when we are mourning the death of a loved one, a bad relationship (personal or professional), or etc.. When we do not say goodbye properly this hinders us in our life moving forward.
Learn to mourn and say goodbye to those things that are no longer with you. Mourn them and in the mourning allow the story that they wrote for you to unfold so that you can get the blessings and discard the curses.
