Remembering my mother and looking toward the formless by Mary | May 30, 2016 | Who we really are | 6 comments My mother died 24 years ago today. This audio is in remembrance of her and also talks about form vs. the formless. 6 Comments Sue Reece on May 30, 2016 at 3:28 pm Hi Mary Loved your reflections today. I’ve just finished reading a wonderful book about death called ‘The Last Frontier: Exploring the Afterlife and Transforming our Fear of Death’ by Julia Assante. Very comforting and inspiring if you should want to explore deeper. Reply Mary on May 30, 2016 at 3:34 pm Thank you for that book recommendation, Sue. And thanks for your comment — it means a lot. Reply Juliet Fay on May 30, 2016 at 5:25 pm Hi Mary I found your audio today resonated deeply. I too lost a parent when I was 30. My Dad. He died suddenly a week before my second child was due. I went to a viewing and had a very similar realisation to yours. What I saw in the casket was not my Dad. I drew great comfort from that fact. I feel as close to him today as when he was alive and also have had a fleeting sense of his presence often over the last 15 months in particular. Thank you for sharing your refections. They have reminded me of my own realisation and pointed me beyond it. Very powerful. Reply Mary on May 31, 2016 at 2:28 am Thank you, Juliet. Again, it was wonderful meeting you in person in Oslo. I hope we meet again someday. Reply Patty on May 31, 2016 at 12:21 pm Mary, Similar reaction to seeing my mother after ‘life’ was removed from her body. “This is not my mom.” I too felt comfort knowing this. So, if our bodies are not us. Well then, the sky is the limit! Reply Mary on May 31, 2016 at 12:23 pm You’re absolutely right, Patty. We are limitless.
