Today, I woke up to sad news; my childhood’s friend’s mom passed away this morning. She was diagnosed with lung cancer last month, the tumor quickly metastasized last week, and her body lost the battle…
In such situations, it’s crucial to remember that souls are divine entities. And according to how they lived on earth, they’ll either experience spiritual rising to higher dimensions or will incarnate to reach further growth, wisdom, and development (that’s one of many theories about afterlife).
However, patience is key to endure the loss of a dear one. So, I’ll be sharing some quotes I reminded myself of to stay strong in these circumstances.
“It is easier to find men
who will volunteer to die,
than to find those who are willing to
endure pain with patience.”
“Rivers know this:
there is no hurry.
We shall get there some day.”
“One minute of patience,
ten years of peace.”
“Adopt the pace of nature:
her secret is patience.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The key to everything is patience.
You get the chicken by hatching the egg,
not by smashing it.”
Arnold H. Glasow
