    Jean was a rarity. Sharing her path of spiritual warriorship for many years, she is continuing to teach me through her absence. My sad heart still knows God as an open space of unlimited possibilities. I’ve learned that true spiritual experiences arise from profound pain… life’s big losses…huge shocks,unavoidable suffering. And now that the reality as I’ve known it, isn’t holding together in the same way anymore, I hear the echo of Jean’s encouragement to try a new path,to open up and not be afraid of the insecurity, the uncertainty, the ambiguity, the paradox of having the rug pulled out from beneath me. My grief is haunted with Jean’s never-ending edicts to use my experience to move towards an awakened heart, an awakened mind.
    Her teaching was for me about opening up your view, moving beyond personal limits to a place filled with deep meaning that doesn’t run out. Finding a niche where you’re on fire with a positive inspiration. Jean taught this as she lived it. I know that walking through her loss will ultimately serve me in some way and gift me with the potential to wake up my unconscious. Today, I simply feel very honored to have in some way been an accomplice in Jean’s spiritual extravaganza and to have been a member of her beloved community.

    You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.

    And at one point you’d hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever.

    And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat. There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who mourn continue the heat of our own lives.
    And you’ll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed, they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they’ll be comforted to know your energy’s still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you’re just less orderly. Amen.

  4. Julie, I don’t know if you ever sent that to Jean but she would have loved it. It is so how I understand her to be and how she opened a wider path to my understanding of the universe.
