Last Monday I found out that one of my best friends, a person who helped me tremendously along the path took his own life. Not enough can be said about him. I could write numerous blogs on his character, his beliefs, his love and kindness, how many people he has aided and directed along the path and still never say enough.
He was a friend, a teacher, a confidant, a sounding board, and a mystery. Last night his friends and family gathered together and said our praise and goodbyes. We built a bonfire in his memory, and at its peak a thunderstorm came and poured down a great torrent of rain washing away the fire as the winds blew and the lightning flashed, we huddled his close and felt him there. He reminisced, we spoke secrets, we cried. Through fire and water we are purified. A great light in the darkness has been put out on Earth, taken home to the infinite. Let your journey back be swift and may the blessings you shared here be poured back onto you.
See you on the other side my brother, you will be missed sorely.
