SITTING SHIVA FOR A LOVED ONE
I think my beliefs are very similar if not the same as yours
Hugs from Tucson,
We are very spiritually similar in our beliefs. RubyNorma *o*
Grief is ongoing but it gets softer with time.
What a tribute to your beloveds.
The grief we feel at the death of a favored person or pet has generated many cultural actions, often dating back to time immemorial, as you note about the Sit Shiva. There is also a need for a "mind cleansing", if I may call it that, when someone whom you have detested in life dies, like an abusive relative, so the surviving person can go on through life with a (fractionally) healed mind.

Dear Jim... You bring up an excellent point about a detested one dying. Ruby *o*
