I always wanted to travel to space.

Just to look at the earth from afar.

I have imagined this moment so many times.

I would see myself look from the window and shed tears of pure awe.

I always felt that the Earth had one heartbeat, and just one soul.

From space we look like we are all wrapped up in one big beautiful ball.

No egos, no politics, no past or future.

If we only knew not how small we are from up there, but how big we are.

How profound we are.

How Divine we are.

How without the Divine, there will only be fear.

Without the Divine in religion we would just have history of miracles not a timeless experience of guidance.

Without the Divine in Science there would be no creation, just logic and fear.

Without the Divine in Grief there would only be the past, the loss, the pain, not the transformation, the wisdom and the superhuman capacity to heal.

You see grief is an inhuman experience in a human body. 

My work is based on brain science but I would be lying to you if I said that it was not based on my powerful experiences of the Divine.

Even though I have not been on a spaceship cruising around our Universe looking at our earth from above, I can honestly say that I have been embraced with that feeling of awe that surrounds our globe, especially because of my heart’s history of pain.

I think it opened inner layers within my soul that only sorrow and deep sadness can unlock.

The one thing that I would say if I could whisper in your ear, would be that if your heart has endured incomprehensible pain then your heart is also capable of experiencing the divinity of life after loss.

And life after loss can literally be an out of this world experience. Just as long as we let go of the guilt that is holding us outside of the gravity of the new world. 

With Life and no guilt,
