‘True caring is attending to what needs attending to
. . . no more no less.
Imposing is getting involved and,
getting involved is imposing.
To impose or get involved is nothing but the self
seeking recognition to fulfill one's own needs.’
Serge Benhayon - Esoteric Teachings and Revelations, ed. 1, page 285
Currently true-care is rarely offered and to support someone who is passing over it is very much needed. As family, friends, health professionals and carers, our ability to truly care for another at this time deepens through the development of a sense of love and care for ourselves.
As we come to understand how enormous the dying process is for everyone involved, we can offer truly supportive care for the dying person. We can let go of the dying person with grace, with no need to hang on, just being there as a support to them throughout their process.
This beholding love of true-care allows the person who is dying the space to be who they are, enabling them to feel more deeply what is happening to them, without judgment, coercion, or the need for the process to be any different than what is happening in that moment. People change and heal all the way to the last minute of this life as they are brought deeper into their body before they die.
Every moment is an opportunity to heal old patterns and evolve when they are met and honoured by the people caring for them at this time.
When someone who is dying is supported to let go of old behaviors and attachments to the world around them, it allows them to surrender more deeply to the process of dying, ensuring that they pass over more settled and clearer than they otherwise would have done.
People can pass over in a continuum of evolution rather than being stuck in their old patterns and the struggle of being in the world.
It is with understanding and acute observation of the changes in the dying person’s awareness, behavior and physical body, that we, as the carer, can fine tune our caring and respond to the ever-changing needs of the person’s passing over process. This is the essence of true care.
