Robin Williams: Dementia And The Power Of Kindness
Kindness is the universal language.
Robin: Yes, Annie. You may feel my energy somewhat subdued in comparison to that which you have received here in the past. Not that I don’t still enjoy the rapid riff and flights of fancy, but in the years since my transition, particularly in recent times, I have been learning to receive these gifts at slower pace.
Ann: I, for one, am grateful, Robin, because I couldn’t keep up with you before.
Robin: I will try, then, to keep it down to a dull roar.
I want to speak to you about dementia, how those of us who have moved into that space receive communications, where we reside, and what we hope for from you who are assisting our eventual transition out of the earth’s atmosphere.
Dementia is the beginning of the transition process. We are beginning to leave this world in our perception, in our needs, and in our longings. Some of us progress slowly and gracefully through this transition and others fight the process, sometimes violently, in our attempt to retain the "control" we know is being wrested from us.
As you know, I opted not to experience the latter stages of this process with the understanding that my transition would have been difficult, perhaps violent, and extremely painful to those whom I wanted to leave in love.
Sometimes in the demented state it is hard for loved ones to feel love coming from a person of diminishing persona. For that is what we become. As the plaques in the brain gradually cut off all that makes us externally unique, our persona is gradually smoothed over until the sacred light that is held deep within us is barely visible to any but those who have the soul vision to see.
In one way dementia is an ego centric process because all but the truly enlightened experience the process as fearful. It takes tremendous trust and faith to allow this process to happen without resistance. What you often see is the ego struggling to maintain some sort of external structure. I believe I would have been one of those and could not face the prospect of what I might do to my loved ones in such desperation.
My decision not to endure not only a possibly violent stripping away of my persona but the exposure of all that was dark within me - darkness that each of us harbor in our souls, darkness which educates us, teaches and transforms us if we can put it in service to the light filled soul at our core - was a decision not to inflict that darkness on those I held and still hold so close to my heart.
Everyone is different. Everyone’s internal experience of dementia is unique, and yet the one constant, the one offering that without fail assists us through this process is kindness. Kindness is the universal language. It speaks from heart center to heart center. It does not demand that the other conform to some external standard. It meets each of us where we are and makes common cause without condescension or pity in the clear recognition that where one is now the other will be also.
If we can meet each other on that plane, accepting with respect and love the decisions that each has made, even when it seems that all decision power has been stripped from us, then we can receive the glorious learning that is offered by the challenges to all who are touched by the Fading Disease, those of us who are dying to life while living.
Whether the experience is direct or peripheral, each of us is offered the opportunity to give and receive our Creator’s elemental kindness as we experience ourselves as a unique soul as part that magnificent whole.
