Megan Aronson is currently working on her first book, a memoir on the last three years of her life, in which she has fiercely forged through the losses of over a dozen loved ones, four homes, layoffs, a multitude of “stuff”, and “things”… to uncover herself, her dreams, and her peace, in the midst of tragedy.
Willingly throwing herself deep into the ugly underbellies of cancer and death, the earlier loss of her two year old nephew, the personal betrayal of losing her baby to a miscarriage, and the purifying astringent of the recession stripping away the “stuff” that soon proved to be unnecessary, Megan takes us on a journey to peace and awakening through each powerful experience. Along the way, she illumines billions of spiritual truths, discovering the “I am” that goes far beyond, “I am a wife, I am a Mother, I am rich or I am poor…”
In facing death, she rediscovers life.
Her book illustrates both the unconscious and conscious approaches to loss of any sort, and the effects of each. How losing everything can give us the freedom of a, “Well, what have I got to lose then?” attitude, taking risks on our dreams as she has. Through her deep inner look at death, she has discovered the truth of the Buddhist concepts of no-birth and no-death, and the freedom we find within when we choose not to hold onto things, but instead to enjoy them for a season and then give them away. So it goes with people, too…in friendships, relationships, death and life…we are all given seasons, and when the seasons change, we don’t curse the Summer for ending, we celebrate the Fall for beginning.
