I wanted to carry on his mission - Love and Peace to the Whole World: Think It and Make It Happen - at least for a year or so. John was so passionate about this endeavor. I did not want it to die as he did. Even though I have not been blogging, his legacy continues in ways unknown to me. My only task is to walk within the pain of my grief and believe that I will find joy again.
Recently I came across two quotes that have helped me:
Nothing in life really stays. It's beautiful that they go. They have to go in order for the next thing to come. You can always add beauty to a thing by accepting that it is temporary. (Paul McCartney)
But then something "like scales fall" from your eyes and you are at peace even in the darkness as well as in the light, knowing the Light is always there even if not visible to you. Then the time comes; you have reached your purpose. You die and are opened up to let yourself be poured forth of all that you have been filled with . . .One ray, one special ray at a particular moment hits you and makes you say "Yes" and you burst with Love, for Love, in Love. (Author Unknown)
Love and peace to all who read this! And to the Whole World!!
