2- On recovering from what seems like irreparable loss: Meditate! You’d be surprised
From an early meditation practitioner Bernard:
“What did you find in your research that you considered helpful in dealing with the passing of your friend?
Bernard B: My research introduced the possibility of the idea of life after death – and it made it more tangible, somehow. Now, what I’m going to tell you could be hard to listen to. It was for me. Overall, I would say I am a grounded person. Typically, French, some would say. So, during my research, I tried to remain skeptical. Even when I found some sound logic or proof, I kept saying to myself ‘I don’t think this is possible’. But I continued my research in an attempt to find truth. And the truth is, that I received signs from my best friend.“
