Coping with loss of a loved one

Let not the pain Innocence stain Within the void of emptiness Lies promise of vibrant fullness Shifting from the external ephemeral To the internal eternal Beyond transient mind body identity Truth of oneness and life eternal continuity We recognise that nothing lost, only veiled Within our heart glows Gods love unstained 29-September-2020

This one is a gem U.S. nothing lost only veiled, is the very essence of my existentialist belief, but I have no idea who or what we are dealing with, truth be told. I know you mention god, but it’s very vague what that actually means, other than a supreme being, can god be described in a scientific sense, or something that can only be felt by the beholder, I’m not asking you for all the answers, just an opinion cheers David

Thank you U.S. it’s all very complex for someone like me to understand, that by no means, means I’m negating your reply, I do believe your a decent selfless person, you ask for nothing but give everything in your poetry, cheers David

I wrote this one to give solace to someone who lost a loved one. In actuality, we are not mind body - jiva but soul - Atma one with God - Paramatma. Maya illusion makes us believe that we are this transient identity. Thus, we feel sad when some close one dies. The soul is eternal. If this truth were not veiled, we would not feel sad ~ The spiritual quest is to align jiva with Atma with Paramatma.
