Lessons to Relive Part 1

Remember Your Journey

Lessons From Beyond has been such an amazing gift… there are no words to fully describe the satisfaction, wonder, and state of elation I feel. I have been inspired by the pain and strength of strangers, humbled by the tough choices forced upon friends and family, and amazed by my own personal growth and enlightenment. Each story of the book has been etched into my being where they lie in wait for the perfect opportunity to show face and reiterate the true meanings of life. After all, we all need a pick-me-up from time to time; a small push to keep us motivated through the trials of living…

By remembering the stories of others we keep the lessons learned alive, and they swirl among the chaos of the modern world, becoming bits of truth that ground us in our ever fluctuating lives. Remembrance keeps the stories in circulation, and in time we make them unforgettable.

However, certain tales glow brighter than rest for they touch a cord within our souls and radiate throughout our entire being. And for these special accounts retelling is a necessity…

When Bad Things Happen To Amazing People

Adam, the functioning alcoholic, met Morgan, the alcoholic and drug addict, in rehab. Both carried demons that ripped at their flesh and mind, coercing them into a life of unease and darkness. Rehab was supposed to be their saviors, but instead they found salvation in each other. Their friendship blossomed within the confines of the treatment center, and they became each other’s pillars of support; a post to lean on during the ensuing storm. In all honesty, who better to understand an addict than a fellow addict? And with their combined strength, Adam and Morgan successfully completed treatment and reentered society with the tools and mindset needed to find success.

But despite his personal leaps and bounds (and no doubt resurrection from a place of evil to a position of good), Adam was more amazed as his friend’s turn-around. Morgan had hit a devilishly low rock bottom, where all hope seemed gone and he was on a sure path to self-destruction, but rehab focused his mind, and his drive toward success was flawless. He was working hard to support his loving girlfriend and their soon-to-be baby boy. All were high on life and not prepared for the devastating crash of a silent killer…

It all happened so fast. A pain in his left side manifested into pneumonia, which was soon discovered to be leukemia. The downward spiral careened out of control, and in a few short weeks, a couple days after the birth his son, Morgan succumbed to the cancer…

Death Is Only The Beginning

The tragic, roller-coaster life of an addict ended as many would suspect, quickly, abruptly, and without any remorse. But Morgan’s life was taken by a murderer rather than his own hand. Cancer has no bounds, no rules to govern it by, and it strikes without warning…

Death however, is never the end. We can still find strength in those who are gone and lean on them when times get rough. Their passing brush of reassurance dances unsuspectingly through the wind and touches us with the soft stroke of a guardian angel’s comforting hand.

How they lived is of no consequence, only what they did to brighten our lives and lift our souls…

So whether a politician, musician, garbage man or addict; the test of an individual’s true character is measured by the good they cultivated within others. After all, whether in life or death, we all need a good friend to lean on when the road gets bumpy…
