“We’re all just walking each other home.” — Ram Dass
It can be of great comfort to have good, solid, trustworthy friends around, some reliable, loving family members, a few pals to catch a concert or movie with, do some traveling or hiking, grab lunch. Perhaps a sig other who’s all that and more.
The important “others” in our lives give our lives the joy, the meaning that makes it all worthwhile, right? Those we keep company with, and those who are in our hearts even if far away, are the ones we’ve chosen, consciously or unconsciously, to walk the path with.
And what’s at the end of the road? Our major religions believe in an after-life, some traditions believe in many lives. Are we home now, or are we headed home? Perhaps one thing is for certain: We’re all in this together, wherever it may lead. Maybe our job is to simply take care of each other along the way.
