I read this morning that 5 young women died in a car accident in a head on collision with a tractor trailer. These 5 young women had both recently graduated from high school and won a cheerleading competition.
The accident was witnessed by another four friends who were traveling behind them.
Trying to make sense of their deaths (or anyone else's in my mind) is fruitless. I've found peace in my life looking at relationships symbolically. (And by the way, I realized recently that everything is about relationships, no matter what. We have a relationship with everyone and everything that is, has been or ever will be in the infinite universe.)
As you may have read from me before, I think it would be VERY powerful if one of the parents of the dead young women would come out and speak of absolute forgiveness for anyone involved. I'm sure it won't be easy to do that.
I noticed that one of the girls in the trailing car spoke about how the van that the SUV passed before it hit the tractor trailer seemed to "speed up" to make it harder for them to pass. Understandably she's looking for someone to blame in some way about this to try to make sense of it, but it won't make sense.
I think it would be VERY powerful if one of these girls could honestly go in front of a worldwide TV audience and tell us that she knows she has to let it go and perhaps even that she has.
If the parents or the drivers or anyone else whose involved does not let it go, it's certain to destroy them.
Here's the thing. I'm not saying I could let it go if something happened to my daughter. I struggle like everyone else. All I'm saying is that letting that eat at and ultimately destroy me is not what I would consider to be living life at a higher consciousness, which every one of us is capable of.
I was born Nov 16, 1968 and I've never questioned that. I've never thought it should have been 1948 or 2028. So far be it from me to question when my life's mission has been fulfilled.
The missions of these five girls lives is complete. It may take a while for anyone involved to realize that, but they are gone and you can't change that. I understand that you have to process grief.
For years I tried to make sense of my brother's death 10 or so years ago and it didn't work. When I realized that his mission in life was to teach me about compassion and letting go, I felt relief.
I don't know what to learn from these deaths, I just pray that someone involved will stand up and show us all what true love really means and it seems it should start with some form of forgiveness.
