I believe I will see my loved ones again and it is that, among other things, which allows me to heal and gives me the courage to journey forward.
I believe there is a profound reason for life and death, perhaps purposely beyond our understanding.
I believe that moving forward is about creating opportunities for spiritual growth, and not just going through the motions of another day.
I believe that life’s events are a classroom, and not some meaningless cosmic joke.
I believe that love is profoundly connected to the meaning of life, and not just an empty phenomenon that rewards us with great joy, only to take it away with much pain .
I have to believe. For without believing, each passing day serves only to take me ever-further away from my loved ones; instead of leading me on an incredible journey back to them.
Yes, I believe.
