Joy & Sorrow

by Shervin on February 1, 2015

When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. ~ Khalil Gibran

Joy and sorrow are from the same fabric. They have same energy. One contracts us and one lifts us up. Sources of your joy are also sources of your sorrow if you are attached to them and want them to last forever.

If you want to live fully, be prepared for both energies and ride their up and down waves without any attachments on how long they should or should not last. If you are currently feeling sorrow, know that you have found a source of your joy hidden in your sorrow.

Sorrow & Joy

If food is a source of your joy, it is also potentially a source of your sorrow.

If being yourself is a source sorrow, it is also potentially a source of your joy.

If your relationship is a source of joy, it is also potentially a source of your sorrow.

If your thoughts are a source of your sorrow, they are also potentially a source of your joy.

If your children are a source of your joy, they are also potentially a source of your sorrow.

If your family is a source of your sorrow, they are also potentially a source of your joy.

If your job is a source of your joy, it is also potentially a source of your sorrow.

If your creativity is a source of your sorrow, it is also potentially a source of your joy.

If your freedom is a source of joy, it is also potentially a source of your sorrow.

If your wealth is a source of your sorrow, it is also potentially a source of your joy.

If your health is a source of your joy, it is also potentially a source of your sorrow.

If your pet is a source of your sorrow, it is also potentially a source of your joy.

If your attitude is a source of your joy, it is also potentially a source of your sorrow.

Ride the waves of joy and sorrow with no attachment or guarantee to last!

For people in my irunstdy, this is a tough question to answer. People typically become our clients because they are elderly and not in the best of health. It is rare that we have a client for more than a year. The reason we normally part ways with our clients is they pass away. I know this sounds morbid, but is a fact of life for people who do what we do.I am sure you are reading this and are asking yourself Wow, that’s depressing. How do you deal with that day in and day out? First of all, there is a real need for what we do. I know this because the family members of our clients will tell us how much in meant to them to have us provide respite from the constant care their loved ones required as they were approaching the end. They will also tell us how much it meant to their loved ones to have someone there to provide companionship as they embarked on the final leg of their life’s journey.Once our client passes away, there is not much left for us to do except to say goodbye to the families whose lives we were privileged to be a part of. Sometimes , we are invited to pay our respects with the family at the funeral services. This is a real honor, and we usually take it to mean that we did a good job. What all of this means for us is that we know that there are families in need of in-home car. Providing around the clock care to a loved one in their final days is difficult, if not impossible in certain situations.

When my work is complete, my clniet is happy to be able to live healthier and have a better quality of life. The environmental toxins from their drinking and shower water, air, nutrients and body are reduced. Their body is healing and their discomfort is diminished without the use of chemical-based, toxic medications. They are happy to be using natural products provided by the earth which allow their body to heal itself without hazardous side effects. The next step the clniet is able to take is one of freedom- increased energy, better sleep, quality nutrition, improved movement- a healthier body both inside and out. My clniet Dawn had debilitating pain and was at the end of her rope. She had stopped her prescribed anti-inflammatory medications due to the development of life threatening side effects. I suggested she live in a total wellness home. She used the natural sleep system; whole food nutrients; magnetic products; and filtered air and water systems. She was amazed that within a week her discomfort was eased and her quality of life had greatly improved and continues to improve without the use of medication.
