Preparing for the Death of your pet

There is no death, only a change of worlds.

The Afterlife



Integration (hope?)

When we lose someone we love, we should remember that the person has not become nothing.  ‘Something’ cannot become ‘nothing,’ and ‘nothing’ cannot become, ‘something.’  Science can help us understand this, because matter cannot be destroyed—it can become energy.  And energy can become matter, but it cannot be destroyed.  In the same way, our beloved was not destroyed; she has just taken on another form.  That form may be a cloud, a child or the breeze.
We can see our loved one in everything.

Thich Nhat Hanh, No Death, No Fear

Section Title

You don't need a certificate to be a death doula. This work is work that comes from the heart. Anybody who has actually cared for another individual who is dying or has died is a death doula. ~ Anne-Marie Keppel

Spiritual Quotation

Saint Benedict tells us to keep death daily before our eyes. Walk with death as a friend. I am trying to remember the great healing daily. I am trying to look at death not as a dark and dreadful foe but as an usher into a new life.

Grief is not a disorder, a disease or a sign of weakness. It is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve. ~Earl Grollman
