Since Love Is Eternal, Death Need Not Be Viewed As Fearful
(from the Twelve Principles of Attitudinal Healing as shared by Jerry Jampolsky MD)
So many times our spiritual philosophy may serve in ‘good times’ but not really anchor us when we need it most- when we face death/dying or encounter a loss of our job or home or relationship.
I am so grateful that Jerry Jampolsky MD who is the founder of Attitudinal Healing shared this in the context of working with terminally ill children. The groups he created offered not just hope but served as an oasis of love and acceptance where everything these children and families were facing could be exposed and shared in a setting of acceptance and nonjudgment. There were miracles of physical healing that often occurred and at other times the families still found a way to reclaim health and peace that extended beyond the body.
- Listen to this recording as I share from my own experience as a pediatrician working with terminally ill children. These children and their families became amazing teachers for me showing me how to live life in the moment fully and fearlessly.
- We explore ideas of how the Love that connects us endures in our hearts even after the body dies.
- We also look at how we can experience ‘death’ in other areas such as loss of job, or through a divorce or even if we are losing what we knew as home through a move.
- We can also be in a mental state of ‘death’ whenever we are in fear or living in the past or the future- and not living from love and fully here and now.
