My mother spent her last years in an old age home in a little town 15 hours by car from where I live. I tried to have her moved to where our family could give her attention and care, but the doctors felt she might suffer a fatal heart attack from the stress of the move. The difficulty in reaching her she later could no longer remember us when we phoned , had her die miles from her loved ones, surrounded by strangers. The pain and guilt of feeling I had failed her arose unbidden within my heart for many years.
Thus very intense romantic love awakens within us the ability to love others more deeply, but it also awakens so much more. The depth an artist brings to art likewise stems from passion inspired by love. Eventually, not only that which we create but that which we are, gets honed and shaped into a maturity that is lacking in those who have never relinquished the love of self for love of another.

For several years now I have been unable to attend wakes or funerals of close relatives and although I truly did not feel guilty, my mind kept me thinking I should feel guilty and talked myself back into the circle again.
I did attend four recently within the last year and I learned so much as I sat there and observed myself and everyone around me. I saw those beliefs that hold people in a place and saw how I somehow have outgrown the need for maintaining those beliefs for myself. My view of death has changed so much that I have had to find another way to express what I feel!
Or I say nothing and hold them close when I hug them. I do not feel guilty anymore and I believe I have found a way to address this matter of wakes and funerals. In Cree traditions it has become a contest to see who can do the best, revive the oldest, etc etc and when it comes to duty and tradition I do it automatically now, what needs to be done and I feel complete. Nice to see you at the womansretrait always have to laugh when i think of your little cat yoga.
I can pick you up in the airplain. For years I felt awful that I was hundreds of miles away from my beloved grandma when she was in a care home near to the rest of my family before she died.
