    Life Transitions are those special moments that mark the progress of our life's journey:
    these include, birth, marriage, becoming a parent, starting school, getting that first job,
    making a difficult achievement, and also death. These are events which our communities
    celebrate and share  in the  joy or sadness with. We do not live alone.

    Life’s Transitions
    "We live by a pure flame within us.  That flame is love.  It is the source from which we draw
    and convey our warmth to others.  It is the light which guides us in relation to others.  It is
    the flame before which we warm the hands of life, and without which we remain cold all
    our lives.  It is the light of the world.  The light it casts enables us clearly to perceive our
    relation to others.  It is for us to keep that flame burning, for if we fail to do that, there is a
    real danger that the light will go out of the world."
    ~From On Being Human, by Ashley Montegu
