5 stages of grief by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. It's very interesting how we cope with grief and loss. It's important to note that the stages can overlap or go out of order, and we can return to stages we've been to before.
Changing the world begins with the very personal process of changing yourself. The only place you can begin is where you are, and the only time you can begin is always NOW ~ Gary Zukav (art;daniele.buetti)
The divine process of change manifests itself to our human understanding . . . as punishment, torment, death, and transfiguration. ~Carl Jung, Alchemical Studies, CW 13, par. 139.
