When someone passes famous or not, everything they ever were and meant becomes magnified. Isn’t that the way it should always be? The world would be a different place if we felt each day with the same feeling for someone as we do when they no longer walk this earth.
The avoidance that we have around death does not serve us. Avoiding the inevitable fact that death will come to us all and can happen at any moment is just another numbing of what is real and true. Life is precious. The gifts we each bring into the world are unique and special and the energy and remembrance of those gifts remain.
What if we were each seen and felt with the eyes and heart that we see and feel with when someone is no longer physically here? What if the beauty of each person was magnified the way that it is after death? Perhaps then we would know what it means to see with the eyes of Christ.
