Our soul does not keep time, it merely records growth

Caine: Master, what is the best way to meet the loss of one we love?
Master: By knowing that when we truly love it is never lost. It is only after death that the depth of the loss is truly felt and our loved one becomes more a part of us than was possible in life.
Caine: Are we only able to feel this towards those whom we have known and loved for a long time?
Master: Sometimes a stranger known to us for moments can spark our souls to kinship for eternity.
Caine: How can strangers take on such much importance to our souls?
Master: Because our soul does not keep time. It merely records growth.
