When I lost my son three years ago, the excruciating agony shooting through my body was the worst I’ve ever known.  It was hurting like hell. No amount of human power could ease the unbearable pain I had gone through. I almost lost all the capability to feel and to think. The writing was the only task I can manage that does not require anything I can’t. I’ve known it since young. Writing when life was difficult had been my way of life and an automatic thing for me.

It’s nice to come across an opportunity, ever once in a while! I’d at least hope that you’re given three of them every year (huge ones). When someone offers opportunity, it’s often not by mistake that it was proposed to you. Obviously, it’s because you fit the description of what’s being searched for.

Being vs. Doing (3 min read)

“I am a human being, not a human doing.”

– Dr. Wayne Dyer

I came across this quote at some point in the past, and it’s always stuck with me.

As I’ve learned about mindfulness and practiced it for a few years now, I’ve gathered that there are two main modes of living. They are “doing” and “being.”

Most of us live in a culture that is all about achieving, concerned with getting things done and moving onto the next. It’s typically rewarded with raises, promotions, and material gain. And, this is where most of us find ourselves – thedoingmode. Continue reading Being vs. Doing (3 min read)

Last night I was watching a Christmas movie (I cannot remember the name) and in this movie multiple characters were feeling depressed. This movie got me thinking about why people may experience depression during the holidays and how to prevent it. I feel that our world/society places high expectations on what the holidays should look like. Continue reading Depression During the Holidays (1 min read)

Making Peace with Death

kims-heavens

A sense of powerlessness over death wraps my whole being right after my brothers’ burial.  I felt vulnerable wrestling with something nobody will ever win. The thought of death immobilizes me for the first time after several losses of people I love the most.

The nights that followed was filled with dreams about death and dying that it bothers me at times. I prayed hard in trying to figure out the meaning of it all and a deep feeling of fear about losing someone emerges. The threat of a deep loneliness over losing a loved one again was stronger than the fear of death itself.

Memories came crashing one by one with every loss I encountered since childhood. It starts with the death of   my grandfather who made me feel I was his favorite. A few years after that, I went to a more profound sorrow losing my Dad.   My mom’s leaving to sickness many years later does not create the same impact I had over the losses during childhood even those of my grandmas. The most devastating of it all is that of losing my son three years ago.

The strong resistance of going back to those unbearable feelings gave light why tears won’t come during my brother’s wake. I created an automatic shut off from deep within because I am not sure if I was capable of going through the same feeling again.  I shielded myself with numbness and rage.

Then I realized it was not death but the feelings of being left by someone I loved that scared me the most. This was the strongest sensation embedded on my being that I would not want to go through again. This is what I am so afraid of that I could not make peace with.

There was a voice within me saying that my loved ones do not really leave. They just go to the next dimension where there is a loving God who connects everything. This is the beauty of my faith; life never ends here. There is life before, there is life now and there is life in the hereafter.

Accepting that death is a part of life just like birth is liberating. The knowledge that a loved one who dies does not leave at all dissolves the feelings of hopelessness and disconnections. Death is a great teacher of life. It teaches us to live every day to the fullest as if it is our last and if it is, there is an assurance that the next life is far more exciting than what we have here today. It was a promise we can claim if we believe in God.
