Today is All Saints Day, Samhain, or Day of the Dead in Mexico. From the DeathCafe.com blog I quote:
Shokti Lovestar beautifully summarised why the Day of the Dead and Sahmain are so important for us: "This is the time to remember the dead, honour death and rebirth in ourselves, and is an opportunity to face our fear of death, move beyond that fear and know our deepest nature."
The hope is to increase our ability to live more fully.
Blessings to you.
