Seeing beyond the flesh, I see a soul. A wisdom far exceeding the knowledge that may be expressed through the mouth, a sight more expansive than that seen through the eyes, a knowing deep truth far beneath the mind, an opening overflowing in creative powers within this tiny physical form.
In conversation yesterday with a lovely lady we spoke of many interesting things but the valuable awareness for me came from our discussion of illness, death, the ending of a child’s life.
She spoke of her experiences caring for very ill babies and children, many who were in their final time here on earth. Her compassion and wisdom that she had learned from these experiences was astounding. She was both a receiver and a giver of wisdom within these experiences, shining a light on a purpose, the gifts of wisdom and unconditional love shared.
What I learnt was a souls purpose can be lived in a moment, a day, a year, there is not a time frame. We come here with a mission or ten, and we do that, we do our mission, we share our wisdom and our love. When a baby passes out of this body their mission is done and they are ready to move onto their next mission, their mission achieved in a moment, their wisdom lasting lifetimes.
My awareness of those souls who choose to care for others in such a selfless act with compassion has forever changed. Previously I was under the assumption that a carer must have a cut off, must be capable of disconnecting emotionally to be efficient and effective in their role as a carer. However since this conversation I realize that we don’t condition love with time. Our hearts open, unconditional love flowing always, even if it is to only be a brief moment in time, we share love always.
When we see beyond the limits of our bodies we know the value of each moment. Purpose and love are never bound by time.
With gratitude to the love of caregivers and the wisdom of those souls who I thought ‘left too soon’ but who rocked their mission in a millisecond.
