Here’s another great quote, only from Carl Jung.
“Life is a luminous pause between two great mysteries, which themselves are one.”
I ran across it this morning and it knocked my socks off because it so exactly describes the experience I kept having while working with the dying. It appeared so obvious in that setting, the luminousness.
I mean it was fascinating enough watching all the tricks and ploys life uses to extricate itself from the bodies that have housed it for years and years, but what I wasn’t expecting was the faint radiance I kept seeing in people’s solar plexus towards the very end. It looked for all the world like the glow of a rising sun starting to burn off a dense morning fog.

I came to think of that radiance as life itself and it always changed me for a little while after I saw it, relieving me of some deep and nagging fear that I’m not usually aware I even feel. It was nice. This morning reminded me of it again, only this time as sandwiched between two great mysteries. How great is that?
Well done, Carl. Thanks.

Hey Becki! Thanks for letting me know about your website changes. Truth is I’ve been not-blogging for so long just about everything on my site needs updating but I’m not sure I even know how anymore. Time to apply myself again. Glad to hear you’re still hanging out there with our peeps! Love you.
Yes, it is good to contemplate the beauty in life’s passages. Thanks for this Dia! I love having you back in my feed.
Thanks Linda. It feels good to be poking around in here again. 🙂
