I would like to explore the possibility that our scientific and capitalistic paradigm has an aversion to heightened emotions and doesn't allow sufficient bereavement time because grieving can hinder productivity, busyness and business.
When we try to stop grief we try to stop growth. And when we look to nature, life that does not continue to grow, dies. The state of grief, no matter how bad it feels, is so filled with life. Grief helps to create more space inside of us that allows life force to flow through.
