The dead are not dead – just no longer in their physical bodies. We have to learn how to see them with our hearts and not our eyes.
Do the things they loved to do, and invite them into that experience with you. They will be there with you in your heart. That connection is always there. We just have to open the door.
They are always here with us. We just have to pick up the “phone”.
Jesus said “My God, why have you forsaken me” – that was the biggest bit of Human-ness he ever experienced. God has never left him, or us. It is up to us to return, to turn back towards the Spirit that we are missing. Jesus says “I will be with you always, to the end of the age”.
They are no longer limited by their physical bodies. They can be with you anywhere and at any time.
When you are thinking of someone who has passed, s/he is thinking of you. It is not a sad time – it is a time where you are able to reconnect.
