Actually I believe dogs see their owners as big, misshapen, alpha canines.

I'm reasonably certain that categories such as "supernatural" and "divine" are not in a dog's vocabulary.

neonpisces,
Rev 21:4 and he will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain, the first things have passed away.

Yes, it will apply across the board. By the way what is a velociraptor?

There's an interesting article on dogs and the interpretation of dogs in the last issue of "Discover."

Craig says:
Owned By Kitties is Keepin' The Faith Alive says: "He would not want His creations (us) suffering pain in Heaven, Craig."

I don't understand why you think that. You are His creation now, here on earth and you suffer Lily. Why do you think life outside of the body will have no suffering? But I know why you think that so never mind. I just don't subscribe to all the pie in the sky afterlife thing anymore. I think reality is much different than that.

I think you must be right. Wasn't there a movie titled: ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN?

neonpisces,
There were times when I felt sure that my dog understood if not my words then my feelings.

And he did understand when my sister dressed him up in her baby dress and set him in a chair and said stay, he would stay until one us told him it was all right to get down. And he sure understood my mother when she made him wait to eat until the cat was done, and the dance he did seemed to be saying, I'll wait but it's highly unfair, I a dog and she's just a cat.

I loved that dog.

"charles,
That is if even humans have an immortal soul. I find no mention of an immortal soul in the whole Bible. If you know so much show me the verse that says we have an immortal soul."

First off, I said eternal , not immortal. But by definition there are much alike.
Mark 3:29
But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation.

This is not true but it shows the use of eternal length in existence in the bible and soul is the word used often for beings in the bible. Thus eternal souls !

Also, you assume knowledge must come from the bible, I am taught by God. I reference tha bible because many here think what they have been taught is in the bible.

I'm pretty sure most animals go to stomachs when they die.

The animal body decays and returns to the general pool of matter and energy of which is was made. The Soul that is the source of the animal kingdom doesn't "go" anywhere. It simply IS.

Moreover, heaven is an emotional construct for very, very young souls.

Are you saying the concept of heaven ?

Charles, I think that when people die, if they have created a vision of heaven or hell, they'll "go" there temporarily at least. There is a thought form that's called Devachan where the emotionally immature seem to project their consciousness at death and there they stay until their "good" karma has been depleted, and then they reincarnate. At the opposite end is Avitchi - ah, but we're talking about heaven, never mind.

I read of a idea like that in the "Seth Materials" Books By Jane Roberts. Not firmilar of it as a religious idea. where did you come acroos it , plz !

I agree that this might be the case, since Quantum says we develope our existance in life, why not carry it on to make a transition smooth. . And you are speaking of the new soul. which may exist, for sure.

Thanx

Astrocat says:
Charles, I've come to an understanding of this over a long period of study and meditation. The idea is that there is an Entity that manifests through the animal kingdom. There is a point at which certain animal groupings, mainly those that have been domesticated, especially the elephant, horse, cat and dog, will "individualize", that is, there will be one differentiated fragment that becomes the soul of an incarnating human being. In a sense this is a "new soul", though that's rather misleading, since Soul IS and is the continual "product" of the interaction of Spirit/Matter (a continuum of energies).

I have often thought the the concept of evolution is sound but is only a physical drawing of the true evolution. I have thought the true evolutionis that of the consciousness. That the non physical self that we are, evolves as evolution shows life has evolved, but in a manner we can't yet understand. Much as you discribe here .

cool !

I agree, Charles, that the true evolution is that of consciousness, and that the physical forms we use for that process have to keep pace with that evolving Soul. I, for one, think/know you're on the right track.

Because Craig, there is no pain or suffering in Heaven. I'm not talking New Age "afterlife," Craig. I'm talking ETERNITY with Him in Heaven.
