His children helped him to the hall - the way to reach this sacred place - and watched him walk those final steps, then turn around and go with grace.
His body glowed a brightening light before he disappeared into the glowing paradise where time can be reveared.

Your soul has had so many lives, it's hard to let them go. (Well, when you're free to visit here, there is no need. Ya know?) Your soul among a trillion more, no names are permanent; for everyone receives one new in every life they spend. Your soul glows with your "feeling shade" - all colors possible; that's why, when angry, you see red. (At least, that's probable...)
Your lives are never quite the same; new families and friends. Each group you enter joins your soul in one huge web of friends. Soul families grow and shrink each life as differences and pain bring some souls close or cut the ties - creating "phantom pains". A friend, one life; a foe, the next. Some feelings never die... Some pains prevent a tie's regain and make you wonder why.
Why randomly pick on one kid in school, when hundreds more attend the same requirements and could have more in store? You pick on them because your soul was hurt in some past life and now's your chance to pay them back for your resentful strife. No reason, many people see - but everything makes sense. You only need to stop and see how everything connects.
All souls, when waiting in the void, have everlasting time. (Sounds boring to forever wait when life is on the line...) This void is only empty 'til you bring a moment back into your soul's "clear" line of sight and let those feelings stack.
A soul is perfect harmony of feeling, thought and place - not place as in coordinates, but where your pulses race. One pulse is merely physical - your beating heart itself. The other is that silver string connected to your "self". The thing that makes your parts a whole by binding three as one - your body, soul and place in time - so, "grounded", you become.
When living, this string only comes undone when you're asleep - allowing you to "feel" your dreams and, when you wake, repeat. That tingling sensation comes from three becoming one - back to your whole in conciousness, regardless what you've done. But, when you're free of "living" state, your soul's free to review all moments from its many lives - including all the "who"s.
You spend all moments (while "alive"), with others or alone. Whoever makes your company returns with moments shown. Try picturing your favorite place or someone that you love. When you relive those moments gone, no feelings are above. A touch... a kiss... or holding hands... Your body feels at ease because your soul is savoring the moments that will leave.
Each life presents new challenges as "soul friends" come and go. But "soul mates" are those precious few who clearly, well, you know. Their prescense feels familiar and, therefor, you are drawn to one another once again and never part for long. Unless you do some stupid thing to wreck what you've regained; in which case, that tie thins or breaks - depending on the pain.
Some ties can never be regained; that's why you spend each life in search of souls withing your web. (Unneccessary strife.) If you could only be yourself and live your life with soul, you'd find your "soul mates" drawn to you and continue to grow. They'll find you when the time is right (not after or before), unless you fail to be your "self" and close your open door.
No soul is always "good" or "bad", it's just the cards you're dealt. Each life is different for each soul, as are the feelings felt. You cannot change the YOU you are, so just express your "self". You'll find - no matter what the life - you're happier in self.
