Teacher: Magisterial Son, Monjoronson.
Subject: “Seeing Beauty in the Passing of Life – Part I.”
Message received by Vicki Vanderheyden.
Vicki: “Dear Monjoronson, I am beside myself with the passing of my younger sister and now as the last surviving sibling, I ask: Why is it that there has been so much loss in my family and at such young ages? Is there something I must learn?”
Monjoronson: “Perhaps, that there is beauty in life… not only at its conception, or throughout the act of living and but at life’s end as well.”
Vicki: “Tell me more please…”
Monjoronson: “Let us first talk of beauty. It is truly through the acknowledgement of beauty that we can access heartfelt love. Seeing life through the eyes of beauty, opens your heart to feelings of love. As you observe the flight of a hummingbird when it hovers in one place as if frozen in time, anticipating the nectar of the flower below, it is that vision of beauty that fosters the love you feel for it.
“Love is often hard to generate on its own. Something can be seen, stated, written or proclaimed… but unless one captures its beauty, love may be difficult to feel. Yet the potential to feel love is abundant. From every aspect of life, one can define its beauty and unleash a burst of love.
“So much is missed in life’s demands, obligations and the daily existence of busyness, that it may take the death of a loved one, to jar you from your current path. As you are halted in your tracks by the sudden shock of it, you are forced to slow down. And at that moment you find yourself awakening to the beautiful aspects of his or her life and yours as well. It is at this time that you contemplate the beautiful essence of the one you lost as you celebrate a material life in its fullness regardless of its length. And when this occurs it is as if all that surrounds you is magnified and distorted enough to give you a unique view of the beauty that only days before laid dormant and undisclosed.
“The beauty and love you experience from the loss of a dear one is not confined to you. It is contagious. It passes on to others and inspires all to see the beauty in the loss you share, while you feel and express more love for each other. It expands your vision to view everything and everyone around you in a different light. It allows you to look beyond the finality of one’s passing and feel how your lost loved one touched the lives of so many others in unique and newly discovered ways. Beauty stimulates gratitude and love for the other blessings in your life as well. And through the loss of your dear one you gain a first-row seat to the beauty of growth that occurs in those around you at that time.”
