Grief & sadness

I had an experience just after waking up when a really good friend died.

It was the separation of grief and sadness.

It was seen that grief was suffering. ..and this was perpetuated by active story telling.

“It shouldn’t have happened”, “she was too young for this to happen” etc…

Conversely, sadness was accepted as a bodily response. 

It brings up tears to go here, but it is sweet. Really beautiful to let it flow.

It’s now almost 12 years later and that sadness is just as strong when I visit it. 

I know it sounds strange, but it feels really rewarding to experience it.
