A comforting thought – from Simone

A very comforting thought shared with us by our friend Richman Nghona who also sang Amazing Grace so beautifully at our Belsie’s memorial service.

“In Hinduism, they believe that when a soul is at it’s most refined but has one last ‘life-perfecting’ task to do, it returns again for a very short little life. The parents are specifically chosen by that soul to help it realise its completion, and then it moves on.

It is considered an honour to be chosen for the duty of assisting…and in return, the parents are so much more blessed with a deeper knowledge and understanding of what existence is all about.

Never about duration of existence but it’s quality.

What that task is, is not for us to never know. However, the experience will never leave one untouched, unchanged or indeed unloved.”
