Life Lessons

Reading Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler's book called Life Lessons. She's the famous death doctor who's written the leading early texts on grief and loss, including Death and Dying.

Check this out. Makes it sound easy sometimes and boy, it isn't.

There are no mistakes in relationships, everything unfolds the way it's supposed to. From our first encounter with one another to our last good-bye, we are in relationships with each other. We learn through them to see our souls, with their rich topography, and to deliver ourselves to healing. When we let go of our preconceived agendas in loving relationships we set aside questions of whom we will love and for how long. We transcend these limits to find a love that is magical and created by a force greater than us, just for us.

["There are no mistakes in relationships" ... whoops ... thanks for numerous readers pointing out all the mistakes and typos in this text. ]
