Day 6 The Truth

Day 6 Something you hope you never have to do.

I hope I never have to make a decision about someone's life - taking them off life support. With my beliefs in other realms and the Underworld, I have to wonder if someone considered "brain dead" by the medical establishment, is just in another place or truly dead and left the body, since the brain no longer functions. Do we know for sure that they are not experiencing something, someplace, that pulling the plug would interfere with?  Are people in this condition lingering between the worlds, hoping for someone to pull them back? Help them move into the place of the dead? Are they suffering in some way?

The thought of being responsible for that decision, most especially for someone I love, terrifies me. There is so much that is unknown. It is definitely something I hope I never have to do.

Blessings nine!

  1. Funny, this one doesn't bother me in the least. I consider myself a psychopomp of sorts, someone who helps the soul to leave the body and enter the afterworld. I wouldn't go so far as to say I *like* it... death is always a sad thing. However, I often get a real feel for what the soul wants, if it's even there.
