<p>Death is honoured as the great teacher who reminds us that Life is a gift and that it should be cherished and should be respected in all forms and ways. During Samhain the wheel of the year is turning, and we are reminded that life continues after the death and decay of physical form, that this life is a journey and our human incarnation is only an experience of our life in Spirit. Finally, we are reminded that we are interconnected with all forms and aspects of Life, part of a great whole we move forward with our Ancestors that we share our bloodline and our spirit line. Samhain is the great time to understand that we are never alone and we are surrounded by the love and light of those who have left the human world and are still connected with us and smile with our progress and happiness.
