Put major decisions on hold, if you can. Rely on the security of the familiar until you're more healed. If the familiar is not nourishing, protective, or safe, make external changes which are somehow guaranteed by friendly presences. Allow yourself to suffer your own healing process, to sufferyour own meaning. You need to discover what the loss means to you, and what the healing means as well. Let it take as long as it takes. The greater the loss, the longer your recovery may be. The more meaning whatever is lost had for youor the more of yourself and your life or time you had invested in itthe more of yourself and the more life and time will go into the healinga.

I looked at the tree in February, the fruit still visible under the heavy snow of Minnesota. I thought, ''For all your tenacity, spring will come in a few months and you, last season's crab apples, you will have no choice. '' In April, I watched that tenacious crab fruit get pushed off the tree by the irrepressible new shoots. Ultimately, life takes the place of death.

Page 1 A Journey through Grief I speak to you today, my friend, as a companion on a journey. I speak from my own experience as one who has gone on a grief journey several times. I speak to you on the basis of what I have learned personally, in my soul, about letting go. I bear down hard on all life's losses. Each one is unique, it's true. As no love is the same, no loss is. I have to let each one out of me separately, give each loss the scream that belongs to its own love's ecstacy. If I succeed, one by one, in letting go, in remembering myself, I may again know that dreamy sweetness, the smells of love, what life is, the feeling of emergence from bliss.
