What the Caterpillar Calls Death, We Call a Butterfly

This is for a dear friend who is going through some transitions within her family, and for anyone who is faced with change. I was asked recently if I had experienced the loss of a loved one & how it affected my life. Sister, father, beloved aunt~but it is different when you lose your first friend. The lesson I've learned from death is that when you focus on separation, you feel the loss. LOVE has no boundaries of time & space; and when Love is your focus, you are forever connected to that person and there is no sense of separation.
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross used to say that when we die, it's like a butterfly leaving its cacoon. Death is really just a birth into the world of Spirit and whether the death is physical or metaphorical, all endings are new beginnings.
