You Are Not Alone

 I just got the news that a schoolmate has passed away. In the school group there was a lot of shock, sadness and confusion, but also shared happy memories about him.

I was thrown back in time.

A time when we all dressed alike because our school required us to wear uniforms. A time when we weren’t sure who we were. We were beginning to become aware of our particularities. A time when we started to learn about romantic love.

And then I remember a time when this friend fell head over heels in love with a girl a year younger than him. He was absolutely in love with her and although we, her closest friends, thought she wasn’t on the same wavelength as him so he should be more careful, he threw himself headlong into the relationship.

After dating for no more than a month, he bought her beautiful gold earrings (her parents were very rich). We were quite shocked by the preciousness of this gift, but wondering if he wasn’t too excited. A few weeks later, she dumped him in a very cruel way and he was devastated… and stayed that way for weeks and weeks, unable to understand what had happened.

Today I couldn’t help but wonder if at that moment his heart broke forever… And suddenly, after learning from another mutual friend that he had been suffering from a deep depression for years, I wonder if it was the sadness that left him sick. .

It’s like he’s always been out of the box. I wonder, for a person with so much love at heart, how difficult and depressing it can be to live in this world. Cold, rational and selfish world. I mean, there’s a lot of love out there, but it doesn’t seem like it’s enough for the purest souls unless you find your mob. And sometimes it takes a while to find her.

We all sometimes struggle with the difficulties we have to face due to the selfishness and separation that is the common ground all around. If one is able and lucky enough to find only another being with the same sensitivity, it is a blessing. But the opposite, trying very hard to fit into the status quo, it can end up in a very uncomfortable place. And depression and other mental problems can arise.

For most of my life, I felt like a fish out of water. Today I know, I feel like there are a lot more people like me, so we’re not alone. You see, when I say people like me, I mean people who have already woken up from this illusion that we are separate from each other. People who have realized that life is more than we can see or touch, and that we are all caught up in the energy field just because WE ARE the field.

My friend R., rest in peace. I am sure you are being welcomed with joy by your loved ones who have come back to the light before you. May you be surrounded by love and peace.

If there’s anyone out there who believes they’re alone, you’re not! Open up to the possibility of the divine, the love that surrounds everyone. It’s there for those who dare to challenge the status quo, looking around for a life with meaning and purpose, also becoming aware of the energy of which we are a part.

Look around carefully and you will discover a lot of love and compassion around you.

Light & love,
