Through my journey in this "life experience" I've finally found some peace through meditating daily, learning about "death" helps you learn about "life" is what I've discovered. Becoming spiritual, has made me realize that this too will literally/physically pass, our conscious will live forever, our bodies will not (thank goodness!!) but we are ALL here to have an experience and we are all connected (IBD or not) as "human beings" on this journey, and after this experience as well. I read up on NDE's (near death experiences" as well as the research part of it (neuroscientists, Quantum physics, as well as the power of consciousness and how meditation proves it by how it will light up the cortex of the brain and actually cause brain changes and more....)
I learned about death when I was at my lowest point and trying to find an end for this journey because it's been a long a painful one (even before the gut issues started to be honest) as I've aged and let myself become open to trying to understand "why me?" I learned that it's really not just "me" but pretty much everyone that is honest enough with themselves to ask the same question (why me?") the answer is;
Hardships regardless of what they are, are meant for LEARNING, not just about yourself, but about everyone else sharing the same "time" here. When you're experiences are bad enough that they can take you to places in your mind that you never thought would be possible, you learn a lot, if you realized it (sadly some don't and continue to blame others for whatever issues in "life" they have)...
Some of the things I've discovered....
"you change for 2 reasons; either you learn enough that you want to, or you've been hurt enough that you have to."
"When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate, when life is bitter, say thank you and grow" by Shauna Niequist
"We don't know who we are until we can see what we can do, but we don't find this until we try something new."
"Birth in the physical is death in the spiritual. Death in the physical is birth in the spiritual". by
"How people treat us is their karma, how we react is ours."
Whatever thoughts, actions and words you put out will come back into your vibration, so make them all as positive as possible, not only for your sake, but for everyone else's as well.
You can give advice but you can't give wisdom.
