2) How to be free from Sorrow caused by a Death of Near & Dear One:
Oh, my dear spiritual friend, please do not become sorrowful. If you become
sorrowful then the departed soul of your friend or relative will also
feel your sorrow. And if you yourself remain in peace and remember God,
the supreme father, who is the ocean of peace and the liberator of all,
then even that soul will receive peace and liberation. Let's say, if someone
changes their old costume or an old house and moves into a new one, then
would you be sorrowful for that or would you celebrate the joy of newness?
Similarly, this body is just like a costume or home for us, the souls.
And even if you think that after death the soul departs for the heaven
or the soul world then why do you have to be unhappy for that? Also, whenever
and wherever that soul would take birth, the people there would be celebrating
and distributing sweets. So why should we be unhappy? In reality, all
human beings are children of one Supreme Soul, the Supreme Father, God.
The entire world is our family. People of all religions are our brothers
and sisters. Wherever the soul has a 'karmic' account, it is there that
the soul takes birth and as soon as the soul completes that account, it
leaves the body and bodily relations and moves away. To come in the cycle
of birth and death is a characteristic of a soul. God, the destiny-creator,
Himself teaches us that a human soul takes birth in human species itself
and not in animals or birds. To learn more about this or to arrange a
