From the perspective of a caterpillar his caterpillar friend died and is now gone. However, in reality his caterpillar friend is a butterfly soaring above him, watching over him and all his friends. Think of me as not dying because nothing dies, everything transforms. Energy, love, soul power cannot die, it only transforms into different forms, nothing is lost in the universe. Life is eternal here and on earth, it is up to us to choose the form we want our life force energy to take from moment to moment.
