An opportunity to explore the spiritual in a manner that all may come together and share.

 

Jul 25, 2009

I was working on something different for this show, an episode in which we might look at decoding Dan Brown and his writings.  But on Tuesday, July 21st, One of my very best friends wrote a new chapter into my life, and opened my eyes to see far more than I intended to ever see.

For all that I'd been through, this was the first time that I'd been with someone at the time they crossed over from this life to the next.  Death is something which some people prefer to not discuss.  Nevertheless, it is the one life-event which each and every one of us will face eventually.  And he made an effort to share his with me. 

His name was Lionheart.  He was a cat, of the variety some people call "American shorthair," or what some people call "tuxedo" because his coat made him look as if he were in such formal attire.

He came into Lady Stormy's life about three years before I did.  She literally rescued him off of the streets, saving him from a crowd of kids who were abusing him.  I was known to refer to him as Lord Pan's "vice president".

He and I became close the moment we met.  Then again, that would be expected from the way he introduced himself to me. 

And at the end, he held on until I was there.

And I think there was much that he was trying to tell me.  And yet the most profound lesson I learned was both subtle and obvious.  I'm hoping you can see it in what I offer here.

Thank you for sharing your loss. Last year I too suffered the same loss to a dear, dear friend. Her name was Muff and was an amazing cat.

She was a gifted healer as well as my friend. One night I could not \"turn off\" my thoughts enough to get to sleep. She got up from my chest where she was laying and moved beside my head. She placed her tail (very gently) across my forehead and gave me calming energy. Within a few seconds, my mind slowed down and she resume her place on my chest to finish her nightly \"goodnight\" ritual.

I will always remember her and miss her.
