Grief is a natural part of human existence and can never be fully eradicated from anyone’s lifetime, for, love cannot exist without grief and grief cannot exist without love. These two emotions are not counter balance to each other nor are they twinned, grief and love each hold basic, integral energies for life on the Earth plane, they are core energies. You know well that you are all love at the core, you know you all came from love and shall return to love, no matter what occurs in between, but do you know you also came from grief? The sadness of separation from source was the first emotion ever felt by your being other than love. It lay dormant “til your first breath and will reside within you “til your last. The level of its strength and influence in your life is, largely, choice. This may seem harsh, even flippant and we mean no disrespect. Many of you have endured enormous loss and hardship, grieving for your life’s tragedies is understandable but grief, when allowed to run free in one’s life, can become a hungry beast, one that constantly craves sustenance. The beast will constantly refeed on whatever sadness you face in the now, it will gather to it hurts from the past and manifest possible future hurts, all of which, it will gladly chew over and over again, as would, a cow with cud. Very few of you are aware that this occurs and mostly this lack of awareness is caused by the enduring presence of the original grief of separation. As humans you are accustomed to grief from the moment you are born, its energy is familiar to you and therefore accepted. Any other tragedy from birth on, if allowed, will feed and sustain the original until, it grows hugely fat, blocking out light and overshadowing love. We cannot prevent sadness, we cannot remove all grief from life, we can, only, remind you that you are love at the core and you are loved to the core. Tolerate the beast of grief as best you can, beloved children, acknowledge its presence but do not allow it to run free and never allow it to block out all of the light.
