I called a friend of mine this morning to inquire about a dear mutual friend who had been in a coma since last week after suffering a massive heart attack.
When he recognized my voice he said, “It’s all over.” These are the saddest string of words I have heard in a very long time. You will soon understand why these were so sad for me to hear.
I would like to celebrate the life of my dear friend and student Senth. For those who did not have the pleasure of being showered by Senth’s grace, I will try my best to describe his amazing soul. I don’t believe my words would ever do justice to this great human-being. He was the sweetest man whom I have come across in life thus far.
He was so giving of himself and his possessions and it did not matter who they were. Strangers were usually the recipients of his caring and generosity. Some felt uncomfortable with his giving nature. As a humanity, it seems like we have lost touch to what a good soul is. He attended several of my Meetups and my workshops and would always pay for someone else who did not have the money to pay for the room. He did this even when he did not have a job.
Senth was an inspiration to many. He was also my son’s math tutor. Several months ago, when my wife had to leave town for a couple of weeks to attend a funeral, my son did not want Senth to know as he would go out of his way to take good care of us.
My commitment to helping people better handle the stresses and challenges that life presents has grown even stronger with his passing. Even his last mortal act was to ‘pay it forward’ with a wonderful gift of life with organ donation.
Senth was only 42. He leaves behind a devoted wife and a 9-year-old daughter. Just a few weeks ago, he was able to sort out all the voices in his head and achieve a tremendous transformation right before my eyes. He had to deal with a tremendous amount of stress and hardships over the past 10 years. It is very sad that just when things began to turn around for his family, they are having to endure this loss.
May his soul rest in peace and I pray that God will provide his family with the strength, courage and support to live and cherish the legacy and spirit that Senth shared so freely with his fellow-beings and mother earth.
For harmony in your life and our world,
