Beloved comedic actor Robin Williams was found dead in his home today of apparent suicide. I don’t want to believe this, especially after dealing with the suicide of my brother in 2012, and my father in 1980. When someone commits suicide it leaves us so vulnerable in their death. The grief is of more than the loss, but also in the loss of the sense that we may have some how helped them or been there for them.
Robin Williams left us with a real gift of L.I.F.E.™ today. He left us with the knowing that we must work together to resolve the pain that hovers over society by stepping into LOVE. There simply is not enough LOVE being circulated individually, and universally. Everyone is so immersed in their own pain and wanting everyone else to notice how big a victim they are.
We are not victims! We were not born into a world to be victimized either. We may be tried, but we are not victims and we must step into our Divine Nature of LOVE in order to move through the trials of L.I.F.E.™ to understand they merely are guiding us into the depth of our own POWER, not into despair.
It is the lack of LOVE that pushes the suicide button. The lack of self-love, and the lack of LOVE in the world we share with others and the love they are open to share in return. Everyone is so guarded and pent up in themselves and their own pain. Where is the compassion for each other? What happened? The world has gone mad crazy in its selfish intentions of greed, power, codependency and victimization issues.
It’s not money that fixes life or fame, nor can resentment or vengeance relieve the pain. Material possessions are not our most prized possession, it is L.I.F.E.™ that is the most valuable commodity and to each of us we are given L.I.F.E. equally.
LOVE is what fixes all pain. LOVE!!!
Individually and as a society we have gotten so far away from LOVE, and so absorbed in our pain that we are leading with pain and impounding our fears and resentments on others because we want to see them hurt like we hurt.
News Flash!!! Everyone is hurting in this crazy pent up world, rich and poor alike. The sickness of pain and depression is a Universal epidemic. The time now is for LOVE!!! No more pain. No more suffering. It is time for forgiveness at the core level to release the demonic hold of depression and suffering that binds each of us.
Robin Williams was suffering. My brother and my father were suffering and committed suicide too. Today people more than ever see suicide as the way out. Out from what? The Pain not L.I.F.E.! It is the pain that they are escaping causing them to forgo the beauty of L.I.F.E.™. They just want to stop the pain.
We all must do our part to end the dark cloud that looms over society by first loving self then forgiving others and seeing love as the Universal Healing that is needed to lift all humanity up from this depressive crisis.
It is time for compassion. Time for forgiveness. Time to do as Jesus said, to forgive 7 times 70 and more… It is time to allow LOVE to rule supreme, for LOVE IS the RULER of ALL… It is the supreme healer of ALL. LOVE is GOD and when we practice standing in LOVE, we are allowing God to be magnified through us.
I am processing another suicide today, which sits very close to my heart because of my own personal experiences with loss of loved ones, loved ones I know are currently on the edge. I am also giving thanks for Robin Williams gift in shocking the world again in a cry and public plea for us all to wake up, as well as giving thanks for blessed opportunity to be share in counsel with several others that have today triumphed over their own suicidal intentions.
Thank you Robin Williams for the wonderful memories and the gift of laughter and tears as you shared your talent with us. But most of all thank you for the gift you leave us of awakening in your passing. Thank you for opening the way for us to LOVE and honor of each other over the the quest for money, fame, vengeance, resentment and pain. Thank you!!! You left us much more than laughter!

Robin Williams dead; family, friends and fans are ‘totally devastated’
By Alan Duke, CNN
(CNN) — Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams apparently took his own life at his Northern California home Monday, law enforcement officials said. Williams was 63.
“He has been battling severe depression of late,” his media representative Mara Buxbaum told CNN. “This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”
Coroner investigators suspect “the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia,” according to a statement from the Marin County, California, Sheriff’s Office.
Williams married graphic designer Susan Schneider in Napa Valley, California, ceremony in October 2011. Schneider sent a written statement to CNN through the representative.
This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings. I am utterly heartbroken.
“On behalf of Robin’s family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin’s death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions.”
Word of Williams’ death stunned the entertainment community and beyond Monday.
President Barack Obama’s statement sent from the White House summed it up:
“Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien — but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most — from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets.”
Comedian Steve Martin tweeted, “I could not be more stunned by the loss of Robin Williams, mensch, great talent, acting partner, genuine soul.”
Former CNN host Larry King said he would remember Williams as “a genuine caring guy. Not just a funny man, but a guy who cared about people.”
Marin County deputies responded to an emergency call from Williams’ home in unincorporated Tiburon, California, at 11:55 a.m., reporting “a male adult had been located unconscious and not breathing,” the release from the sheriff said.
Williams was pronounced dead at 12:02 p.m., it said.
Williams was last seen alive at his home, where he lives with his wife, at about 10 p.m. Sunday, the sheriff’s statement said.
“An investigation into the cause, manner and circumstances of the death is currently underway by the Investigations and Coroner Divisions of the Sheriff’s Office,” the sheriff’s statement said.
“Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made.”
An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, the sheriff said.
illiams made at least two trips to rehab for drug treatment, including a visit this summer, and he underwent heart surgery in 2009.
Williams, born in Chicago on July 21, 1951, studied theater at Juilliard School before taking his stand up act to nightclubs. He was cast as Mork, an alien visitor to Earth, for a 1974 episode of television’s “Happy Days.”
“Happy Days” star Henry Winkler said it was “unimaginable that this is the reality today, that this incredible human being, incredible, delicate, funny, dramatic human being is gone.”
Winkler said he “realized I was in the presence of greatness” at Williams’ first rehearsal as Mork.
“I just realized my only job is to keep a straight face,” said Winkler, who played “The Fonz.” “And it was impossible. Because no matter what you said to him, no matter what line you gave to him, he took it in, processed it, and then it flew out of his mouth, never the same way twice. And it was incredibly funny every time.”
The role led to the spin-off show “Mork & Mindy,” which showcased Williams’ usual comic improvisation talents.
He proved his dramatic acting skills in “Good Will Hunting,” a 1997 film that earned him a best supporting actor Oscar.
His memorable movies over the past three decades includes “Good Morning, Vietnam,” “Dead Poets Society,” “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “The Birdcage.” The list is much longer.
Williams credited the influence of Jonathan Winters’ comic irreverence and quirky characters as a great influence on his comedy. The connection between the two was completed when Winters was cast as Williams’ son on “Mork & Mindy.”
When Winters died in 2013, Williams said he was “my idol, then he was my mentor and amazing friend.” He tweeted that Winters was his “Comedy Buddha.”
“Mork & Mindy” co-star Pam Dawber simply said “I am completely and totally devastated. What more can be said?”
WIlliams and Dawber reunited on TV earlier this year on an episode of the CBS comedy “The Crazy Ones.”
Williams’ fans can look forward to four more movie appearances coming to theaters, including another installment in the “Night at the Museum” franchise.
The film, set for a December release, has Williams reprising the Teddy Roosevelt role he delivered in the first two comedies.
