Whether the loss of a beloved pet occurs suddenly and unexpectedly or is
a result of circumstance such as long-term illness or advanced age that
has allowed us time to try to prepare ourselves for the inevitable,
death nonetheless comes as a shock to the system.
By all outward appearances, death would seem to be so final. Of
course, to the physical senses, it is indeed the end of a chapter of
life. Beyond the physical, however, exists the realm of the
spirit... and the spirit never dies.
Each soul is a tiny wave upon the Infinite Ocean of Spirit that we may
define as God. The wave is not the ocean and the individual spirit
is not God, but the wave is a part of the ocean and is made of the same
indestructible and imperishable cosmic matter. As God has always been and will always
be, so it is also with the ethereal spirits of all sentient beings...
including our beloved animal friends. When they have gone, they
are not gone... they have only, at Our Heavenly Father's behest, moved
on ahead to another dimension of existence.
At the time of loss, it can be very easy to lose sight of the true
spiritual essence of life and become deeply saddened, not by what is but
by what appears to be. It is then that we most need to be able to
share our feelings with someone who not only has a sympathetic ear, but
who may also assist us in refocusing our innermost perceptions to
recognize and accept the true reality of our experience of life and
