This was posted this morning at the Hospice and Nursing Homes Blog. Sometimes we need reminding that the people around us may have more going on inside than they let us know. Or that we want to find out.
I can tell you that for many there is nothing going on inside. But between that place -- the empty nothingness of Eternal Now -- and where they began, they experienced months and years of transitional events. We may not be able to change the destination but we do have a responsibility as bystanders to make their journey as emotionally free of pain as possible.
