I promise not to rub salt into raw wounds.  I know many of us out there are shocked and grieving at the death of Robin Williams.  There was a point, I could not look at or hear anything about this without crying.  So this morning I just happen to stumble on Marianne Williamson’s post on Facebook.  I see the title, and I think – no way, I am not reading this.  Then I remember, this is Marianne Williamson!  She’s not going to take us through some heart breaking journey of his life, no she will elevate us all from our sorrow.

I need read nothing more on the subject, she says it all:

“ON THE PASSING OF ROBIN WILLIAMS…

One theory of death is that, upon our passing, we experience our lives again backwards. Whatever I gave or did not give to others, I will experience what they experienced — times ten. That would mean that for every laugh — either a small chuckle or outright guffaw –every smile that Robin Williams caused to occur in others, he is now experiencing tenfold. That would amount to bliss unending. May it be so.

Juxtaposed with both irony and tragedy, of course, is the unspeakable suffering that would have led to his death, and the grief today of those who knew him best and loved him most. Let’s hold both truths in our hearts — a deep appreciation that a comic genius walked among us and shared his gifts with us, thanks for the opportunity we had and still have to enjoy his talent, and prayers of peace for his soul and comfort for his family.

Dear God,
May Robin Williams be blessed.
May he find in heaven the peace he could not find on earth.
May he know now the joy that he gave to all of us.
Give comfort to his family,
and rest unto his soul.
Amen”
