Bereavement Defined:

[1] noun state of sorrow over the death or departure of a loved one
[2]To leave desolate or alone, especially by death

“If tears come to your eyes, cry for God – for the Beloved. To weep for one who has left this world sometimes harms that person. One hears of many
incidents of this kind. Therefore, it is the duty of the bereaved to
remain calm and collected and pray for the spiritual welfare of the
deceased. It is He who gives and He who again takes away. Thus, what
can man do about it?” – Anandamayee Ma

The Quote Garden:

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.  ~From a headstone in Ireland

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.  ~Kahlil Gibran

Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul perishes like the body, answer that the flower withers, but the seed remains.  ~Kahlil Gibran

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.  ~Author Unknown

“By directing the person’s attention to things in the environment which are not so connected and making him find things which are not actively reminding him, one gets a differentiation where an identification existed before. And where differentiation exists, intelligence and judgment can return.”  L. Ron Hubbard ~ Assist for Handling the Loss of  a Loved One from Volunteer Ministers site.

Do the following:

Tell the person you are going to help them. Tell him or her, “Find something that isn’t reminding you of __________(name of person he or she lost).”

Repeat the command, getting the person to find something else that is not reminding him or her of the person until he or she has a realization and feels better about the situation.

This simple procedure can help the person recover from his or her lost love and begin to live again.

This will benefit the person more than one might imagine.

A broken love affair can result in the person being in a state of mind where everything in the environment is a reminder of the loss.

But a person can be helped to recover. If one can find something in the surroundings which does not bring to mind the lost love…

…The person’s attention can become unstuck, which allows her to feel better.
