Let’s get into the discussion now.     Welcome to this episode with Mr. Atul Patel, a Heartfulness leader. Thank you so much for having me here. Atul became connected to me because as we go through this journey of grief, I know that there’s not one way to deal with it. Everyone has a different concept of this and a lot of things happen with the body as you go through grief. A very good friend of mine Ramish connected me to him, and the information that he will share with us, I think you will find helpful. We live in a body that I know we don’t always know so much about how it works, and to be able to connect with other people and get a better perspective of the body that we live in, and how grief impacts our body and our energy is something that we often don’t look into because we live lives in our own little spectrum to be able to reach, connect, and find value in what other people have to share. Right now, we are at a point in our life where we are open to hearing things we may have never looked at before, but realize that it’s an opportunity to be able to learn, and he has something for us to learn. Thank you, Tina. It was a nice welcoming message. I’m happy to be with you and I would rather say I’m honored to get this opportunity to share what we have to share in terms of what Heartfulness can offer. Losing a loved one and go getting through that experience is very central, and every one of us goes through it at some point. Our loved ones, the people around us, and especially our life partners are central to our existence. Losing them or suddenly not having them as part of our life creates a huge vacuum and we get bewildered about how to handle that. You mentioned something about our bodies. Most of our experience in this world is through our body, our eyes, and our senses. A relationship is a major part through which we connect with each other also through the body, understand each other, listen to each other, and try to acknowledge the feeling of love and compassion for each other. When this happens, when we suddenly don’t have our loved ones around us, our body does get confused. We don’t know what to do. We feel a lack of energy. We feel a lack of purpose in our life. If this experience happens in a traumatized way, then it creates an even much more tragic impact on us. Unfortunately, what happens is many of us as we have gone through this experience, repeat this experience mentally again and again. When we go through that experience mentally again, we are in a sense reliving that experience and the sadness and grief, that has affected us. Our brain, in a sense, reproduces those chemicals and tries to help us to cope with it. In a sense, we are reliving that experience by having those chemicals produced. It creates a domino effect and makes us even intensify that experience. Now the question comes up, how do we make that experience, the space or grief, which is created in our heart, how do we transcend it? How do we handle that so that we make this experience and express our love for our loved ones in a much more transcending manner? You mentioned if it’s in a trauma situation, then instantly, the idea is to continually play it back over and over in your mind, and neither of those things that we have control over. We don’t have control over the way our loved one passes. It increases the trauma and that shock that happens when a loved one passes, whether they have been sick for years and you know that their passing is intimate, or if it’s a car accident and someone knocks on your door. That instance shock of knowing that your loved one is no longer here, the brain is struggling. The body is trying to make sense of the world that keeps going on, and you are right there. That is crucial to understand how to manage that. The body gets in shock mode. The brain doesn’t know how to handle it, and all of a sudden, at the mental plane, we are trying to figure out some life, which was something fulfilling, meaningful, …
