"Buddhists don't cry." - These are among the last words that Diane's husband said to her before he died. Even in death, he was teasing her. Well, yes we do cry.
From the time she was a child, Diane Wilde has been comfortable with death. She is rare. MOST of us need to work at it. And being comfortable with death does not mean that you do not feel sad when someone you love dies.
We grieve. Our heart breaks open. The passing of time loses meaning. Our throats tighten up. We change how and when we meditate.
And MOST of us come through to the other side of grief. A side where you feel more compassion toward others, your heart comes backs together and you are free from your fear of death.
