Greetings as I begin this project

Welcome to Grief – Going Through Grief.

I am offering this material in order to share some things that have been helpful to me as I have traveled the journey through loss and grief.

I think “through” is a key word here, because, as far as I know, the only way to get to the other side of grief is to go through it.  As desperately as I might try to somehow squeeze my way around, over, or under my grief, attempts to do that usually only prolong and intensify the pain.

There’s a quote by Winston Churchill that I love: “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” I think this advice applies to grief in a very literal way. I hope something here will be helpful for you – or for someone you know and care about, who might be going through the process of grief.

Blessings along the way.

  1. Thank you, Ishwari, for your timely thoughts & words. I lost
    a beloved cat 2 wks ago, shortly after moving to Santa Fe,
    and am feeling “stuck” in grief. I know that when I get through
    this period, I’ll be able to adopt another kitty to be a companera
    for my other cat, whom I suspect is also grieving in his own kitty way.
    I look forward to reading your blogs and finding much-needed
    solace there. With gratitude, Joy

    • Thanks for your comment, Joy. Blessings on your journey. (As you know, we have communicated with one another via email since you left this on my blog. I am new to this format, so am just now realizing you had “commented” on the blog.) Thanks, again. I hope that some of what I offer on the Through blog will be helpful.
