When someone we love says, “I will love you forever,” what does this really mean? Do they mean that they will literally “love you forever,” even though you both know the human being speaking those words will not–cannot–be with you forever?
Here at The Meaning of Forever Project, we have a theory: That when two souls truly love each other, their love can last forever, beyond the life of one physical body–beyond (if you believe in reincarnation) the life of many physical bodies. At The Meaning of Forever, we believe that love truly does last forever and the stories you can read on our blog help prove it.
The Meaning of Forever Project is collecting stories about how experiences with departed loved ones–human or animal–have helped us heal and move forward in our grief. We also welcome stories of near-death experiences, because it can reassure us to learn how they give the living a glimpse of heaven.
The Meaning of Forever Project is founded upon these basic beliefs:
- That each of us is Soul, an eternal spark of our Creator;
- That we exist because our Creator loves us;
- That Love—of the Creator for the created, and of Soul for Soul—is eternal.
- That, as eternal Soul, we continue to exist regardless of whether we have physical form.
- And, last but not least, that Souls are not limited strictly to human form. Animals are souls, too.
Your Story is Welcome
Our Blog contains examples of the kinds of stories we’re collecting. (Find the complete blog here) Your story may be like one of these; or, it may be about a different experience entirely. But if it’s reassured you that your loved one’s life continues, even after death of the physical body, please send it along.
You can help us compile a book showing that encounters like these occur every day the world over, and that recognizing them can bring us solace in times of grief.
