Recently I met someone who has truly started down the journey of enlightenment, and we have had some very awesome conversations. Recently they lost a close friend in a vehicle accident, and they were really questioning how to handle death.

I simply asked for a recent picture and the name of the person who recently died and sat in meditation on this bit of information. This experience was a bit different for me and I wanted to share it with others. I will call this person who passed on by “Jeff”, which is not their real name. When I first connected to Jeff there…
