Embracing our sadness
So grief and sadness are simply a way of recognizing the depth of feeling for someone (and to be clear, non – person animals are sentient beings too, beings that can reciprocate love too). That’s all, it’s just a way of seeing how the good of that unbounded something manifests itself with loss.
"And such as if you put your and in fire it burns, so there’s a lot of discomfort in life. And the fundamental teaching of the Buddha was not to struggle against the pain in our life. And that’s not the kind of news that we really like to hear."
