No one can deny how painful it is to lose a loved one. But love allows us to overcome the pain. You think the more you love someone, the more you will suffer from such a separation. At the time, you will, without a doubt. But if you have truly loved someone, in time another kind of relationship develops between you, and you feel their being as a constant presence. And at night, in your sleep, you are also with them. In the morning, you may not remember meeting, because the journeys the soul makes during sleep rarely reach awareness, but you will feel the connection growing stronger and stronger as time goes by. God did not place limits on love. Love is stronger than death. Those who have shared true love are never parted; their soul overcomes all material obstacles.
