Reverend Patrick's 23rd Psalm
The Lord is my sustainer and my guide.
All that I possibly need has been provided.
I rest in pleasant comfort and infinite potential.
I am eternally refreshed.
I am guided into right choices and right action
So that I serve the highest level.
Through darkness, disappointment, even death appear,
I remain at the center of peace.
For I am assured of my oneness with God.
Before me is prepared a feast, and even in the midst of pain,
I am honored with great abundance as a member of the Royal Household.
My life is supple and sweet with the oil of Divine Love.
I overflow in goodness and grace all the days of my life,
And I live in Divine Radiance forever.

Grief is not a disorder, a disease, or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity; it is the price we pay for love.
The only cure for grief is to grieve. And live life to the fullest we are capable at each moment.
Ernest Holmes on grief and loss (The Science of Mind 387.3 – 388.1)
It is human to grieve the loss of dear ones. We love them and cannot help missing them, but a true realization of the immortality and continuity of the individual soul, will rob our grief of hopelessness. We shall realize that they are in God’s keeping, and they are safe. We shall know that loving friends have met them, and that their life flows on with the currents of eternity. We shall (eventually) feel that we have not lost them, they have only gone before. So we shall view eternity from the highest standpoint, as a continuity of time, forever and ever expanding, until time as we now experience it, shall be no more. …. Time heals all wound, adjusts conditions, explains facts; and time alone satisfies the expanding soul, reconciling the visible with the invisible. We are born of eternal day, and the Spiritual Sun shall never set upon the glory of the soul, for it is the coming forth of God into self-expression.
