Robin Williams: Loss
"So when we are left behind, kindness is the only way,
the only salvation."
Ann: Robin, good morning.*
Robin: Good morning, Ann, it is a sad one for you and your family. Sudden loss is so hard to process. I inflicted that upon my family, but my illness was chronic and already impacting their lives. Out of the blue takes on a whole new meaning when there is no explainable context except what seems like a random act of destruction.
Many of you have suffered this betrayal in this time of plague. It seems like God himself goes off the rails and in a fit of pique leans down to throw random spitballs at his creations. There is no sense, no apparent rhyme or reason to the horror inflicted upon us.
And yet there is. There is a choice to return to life, to suffer, to allow others to take up the slack, to take the time to receive the massive loss, sometimes devastating for a lifetime or more. Robert is here nodding his head.
How can we process what we can’t see or understand? I wish I could give you an answer, but even here it is not given to us to know the eternal pattern of creation. What I do know is that life does not end with death, that it continues in one dimension or another, that each one of us get to review our life choices, and, when we do, we rejoice in the kindnesses we have shown to others, particularly when no demand is placed upon us.
So when we are left behind, kindness is the only way, the only salvation. Kindness knows its own and creates among the living a community that carries on, yes, in sorrow, but not in bitterness, and will move eventually through unbelievable pain into acceptance and wisdom.
We can choose to blame God, to shake our fists at his cruelty and seemingly indifference, but this is only blind and impotent rage at the mortal blow that is dealt to each one of us sooner or later.
Or we can choose to allow ourselves to grieve, to reach out to each other, give of what is needed, notice a lack, a hole, a need, and then do what we can offer ease. This is what will be remembered when we pass.
In this time of isolation we are thrown back on virtual giving, the heart centered meditation that sends love and light, the holiness quotient within each of us that can walk through the fires, if not hand in hand, then heart to heart.
It may seem like nothing, but it will be received in this world and the next. Do not simply go about your day in detached misery. Engage with the departed and with those who remain in heartache. In our physical separation we can elevate our spiritual and intuitive powers so that each one of us becomes an integrative force for kindness and love. Loss is loss. We cannot take heartache away, but we can surround each other with light and love so that we all know that we are not alone even though we cannot hold each other in our arms.
I am sending love and light to all of you who carry these burdens and letting you know that, when you can see clearly, you will recognize the gifts you have given and received.
