When a loved one passes on

We can experience the comfort promised in the Bible when someone we love passes on. The recognition of God’s loving care for us, and them, washes away all the dark thoughts and brings a new outlook. Read Louis Benjamin’s story of healing . . .

When my wife passed on after decades of a loving marriage, I became very lonely and sad. I prayed to understand that there is no death, and that both of us are complete, spiritual expressions of God, having every divine quality and attribute, right now and forever—to know that life is really immortal.

Then God spoke to me and said, “My grace is sufficient for thee” (II Corinthians 12:9). I understood grace to be the disposition of the Christ, God’s healing message. Grace is what I have and embody because I reflect God’s nature. It is the divine or spiritual temperament, the consciousness that does not respond to, react to, or even see that which is mortal, but recognizes only God’s creation.

The next day the Christ again spoke to me: “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you” (John 14:18). I knew that this applied to my wife as well. I learned that the support we gave each other and the spiritual qualities my wife expressed were not in a material form or character. They were actually God expressing Himself. Therefore, they could never be absent. . .

Our completeness is always intact, because our relation to God is never severed, divorced, lost, or taken away. There is only God, the divine Mind, and His expression. There is nothing present but the divine Mind and its perfect, eternal ideas—each of us.

These truths gave me great peace and comfort. They enabled me to understand that my wife and I are both embraced in the Christly love of God’s ever-presence, and that we are each moving forward spiritually.

I lost the sense of separation from my wife as I began to see her God-given qualities expressed around me. . . “
