Love is like a butterfly … a rare and gentle thing…
All about Love and Loss
I titled this post “Love is like a butterfly” because I have just been writing this post on the bus, and the song of the same title is playing very loudly which makes me smile! In Sydney, drivers can play whatever music they like on their buses. It floats through the air, so loudly I am unable to hear the Go-Betweens on my iPod. The music transports back to the to the 70’s sitcom show Butterflies. It is also very apt as I am just been writing this blog post thinking about the fragility of life and how a delicate butterfly represents this.

Things I have found useful relating to understanding loss
Dr Kubler Ross – and her Kubler Ross Curve can be a useful tool to explain the ups and downs of the grief process. Meditation of some kind is a good idea to have in your toolkit as it keeps you in touch with your inner feelings and well-being. You can find meditation in many ways whether sitting looking at the sea, being in nature, or following a set meditation practice.
Sadhguru is a big favourite of mine. He is an Indian Yogi and Mystic and he has a free app you can download to your phone and use daily, even when you don’t have a connection to the internet.
Sadhguru says there are 3 things we can do every morning. When you wake up in the morning celebrate you have woken up and not died during the night and check that the 5 people closest to you are alive too – then celebrate again, how lucky you are!
