Flying in honor of Lynda Rock

While I was out running 20 miles on Sunday, one of my dear sistergirlfriends, Lynda Rock lost her battle with ovarian cancer.

I have only known her since she had the disease. She walked tall with dignity, grace, and immeasurable strength.

Another dear sistergirlfriend sent this to me yesterday to comfort me and it speaks volumes. I could not have written these thoughts any better:

"Our real self, the soul, is immortal. We may sleep for a little while in that change called death, but we can never be destroyed. We exist, and that existence is eternal. The wave comes to the shore, and then goes back to the sea; it is not lost. It becomes one with the ocean, or returns again in the form of another wave. This body has come, and it will vanish; but the soul essence within it will never cease to exist. Nothing can terminate that eternal consciousness." 

-Paramahansa Yogananda
