Life is a wondrous journey. Everyone born on this earth is guaranteed a life’s journey. For some, the journey is long and fruitful; for others, not so long. And still, for some, the journey is too short compared to others, then, they pass on and their journey is over.
While on this earth, loved ones can reach out to one another to where they are physically. They can reach out by phone; by writing letters; by the transportation of cars, trains, boats or planes. Perhaps a bicycle ride across town or a walk around the corner is all that it takes to reach a loved one. That beloved person is physically in one place. They could be a block away or a state away. They could be across the country or parted by the seas in another country or they could simply be in the next room, but they can only be in one place at a time during their physical journey on this earth.
Once their physical journey here on this earth is done and they have passed on. It is then that they become bigger than life. Now, they can be in all places, anywhere, at any time, all at the same time. But how can that be? You might ask; how is that possible? It is because they are now in the hearts and minds of those loved ones left behind. The son overseas in another country; the daughter in another state; the sibling next door; the aunt around the corner; the uncle across town; all the many loved ones who are spread out in so many different places can all at the same time embrace the loving memories of that loved one who’s journey on this earth is done and has passed away.
Now; that loved one is bigger than life! The memory of their being is in the hearts and minds of all who knew them. Surely, their physical being will be missed but as a comfort to the heart, they may be thought of as being in a better place. Now, they’re with every loved one who thinks of them; who has them in their hearts and minds, any time, all of the time, at the same time. That loved one’s memory is shared by all who knew them because now, they are bigger than life.
