Oftentimes, people I met during my mundane day, ask me what I do. If I believe the question to be an honest one, as they have a functioning soul-seed, I tell them:
“In truth, I am just a bard who was asked to bring some new stories to help mankind transform itself, For the virtual narratives which are created for us and by which we live, and not verbatim, factual history, are what leads to lasting and useful truths. The real truths are found within our hearts and not our minds”
So let me share a life event seen from a Spiritual point of view:

SAIL WELL, DEAREST FRIEND
Sail thee well, dear and wondrous friend,
for today, with saddened hearts and most caring souls,
we lay your body, most royally in your dragon ship,
to rest in peace upon your great cloak of wool,
steel sword in hand and heraldry shield upon your breast.
A zephyr, strong and fair, is rippling the skin of the Waddenzee,
water crests breaking into droplets,
suspended for a time in airy embrace,
wind blowing northward towards the Cloud-hidden Isles
of Arthur’s Avalon and the Great Norse Tree,
resting place for all mighty heroes, now and of old.
We have set your sail so to fill with wind,
and tied your rudder so to sail Northward true,
and placed upon your vessel’s dragon-headed prow,
a great lantern, with flame burning brightly
upon a wick fueled with the oil of love,
to light the seaways and banish devils all.
Today, you sail from one set of friends to join again with others,
give them our best wishes and greetings,
for all are remembered still.
Sweet friend, free at last of earthly bounds and burdens,
we shall miss your happy smile and cheery words,
our tears of sadness will flow for quite some time,
but, please remind us in such moments,
that one day, we all shall be together, once again.
As for myself, dear friend, our friendship remains alive,
for in my dreams, beyond these worldly atoms and geography,
we still shall speak and share a good joke or two.
Watch over all of us, dear friend, until we meet once again.
Sail thee well, dear and wondrous friend.
I guess, I would opine, that the continuing love we create within our hearts, must comprise a portion of the daily meal supporting our friends and family in the Beyond.
