Experiences in life

Everything that happens in life is an opportunity to work on meditation. Taking positive and negative situations as just experiences can be harsh sometimes, especially facing negative situations. I'm facing two of those situations right now, and i feel like i made a step. I'm not taking these situations as bad as i took similar ones in the past. It is not easy situations, but they are part of life. Every flower, every tree that blossom has to die and then another one will grow.

My father anounce me that his kidneys are finished, they are functionning only at 20 per cent of their capacity, he needs a new one. At first, when he told me that, it was hard, but now, i can say that i accepted the experience. 

The second situation is about my uncle, he died this past Sunday morning. And i saw him a couple hours before this past Saturday and he seemed fine. Tho he almost died in my arms because of heart failure this past Christmas, i didn't think he would die this past Sunday. He will be remembered as a sensitive person, a generous one and a godfather for my family on my mother side. He shared with me some of the craziest stories i ever heard, he always been kind with me. He liked to party a lot, and share his wealth with others. He came to see me with his friend when i was in the psychiatric aisle two times. I could go on and on, i could write a book about my uncle, but i will just end this blog post by saying that, what helped me take this experience as neither good or bad, as just an experience is the fact that i never took him for granted, i told him everything i wanted to tell him, i've had some good times with him, and i feel in a way that those times was like a final good bye. May his soul rest in peace.
