Día de los Muertos
Día de los Muertos is a time for people to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The idea is to be respectful to loved ones gone before us, to honor their lives, and acknowledge the fragility of life. Each person builds an altar that has special meaning to their own journey. This year, there is a lot of symbolism on my altar; lives recently lost, lives lost a long time ago that have been on my mind entering towards new parts of my journey, and the ever-present losses that have equally changed the direction of my life. I find myself embracing the lessons these lives and moments have taught me with new awareness. I am choosing to leap towards these lessons with passion that these lives taught me when they were alive on my journey. I am ready to embrace, to accept, and to move towards life in ways I have been holding back.
What are you mourning today? Are you ready to leap towards something new on your journey? Are you listening to the wisdom of the souls who have left us? Take a moment to reflect on loss…
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on the snow.
I am the sunlight on the ripened grain.
I am the gentle Autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush,
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry:
I am not there, I did not die.
