[ its one thing to feel uninhibited/carefree/unbiased on a physical/mental level. but when that type of energy comes from a spiritual level thats the powerful stuff. thats the epic transforming energy right there. alchemy of the soul. ]
Do not be discouraged when somebody dies and you feel like the whole of them is gone, for the whole of them is not all gone, because the human soul/spirit behind the physical human body has never really been visible to the physical human eyes ever. Therefore, who's to say that their essence is not still with us somehow?! These physical manifestations that we see with our eyes are on this physical plane. Spirit is on another plane, a different dimension. And it may be connected to the human body at some points of interdimensional vortexes but when the physical body dies and decomposes this does not at all imply that the spirit, the essence of that person, dies off and ceases to exist as well. Just as the physical body becomes part of the soil to continue on in the physical plane, the spirit continues in it's plane. The human body is just a physical manifestation of this temporary reality that hosts the eternal soul. We may feel that when the physical body dies the whole of that person is gone, but consider, as I said, that the soul is always invisible to our human eyes! The essence of that individual's true self, their soul is still invisible to us from this perspective, but they are still here with us! If anything happens to the soul then perhaps their essence energy diffuses and becomes part of the whole energy of the spirit plane, and therefore may very possibly diffuse and become parts of our souls. (Just like what Rafiki said to Simba about his father being in him - yes i totally referened Lion King, but it's true!) Just a thought. But what's real to the person in their head is real enough.
