Circle of Life

Everything exists together in a delicate balance of life Ö you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures Ė from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope Ö but, donít we eat the antelope?

Yes, but when we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass.

Just as the sun rises from the night, and winter becomes the spring, so life arises from death. Everything is connected in the great Circle of Life.

In the Circle of Life, we had the great blessing of Olivia amongst us.

The Circle of Life gives us a tremendous opportunity to develop emotional, mental and spiritual maturity and strength.

Olivia receiving her Angel wings was not the end of anything but the physical body. Olivia did not stop existing. She walks amongst us in spirit, love and remembrance.

Olivia's the littlest Angel waiting with open arms and smiling, and will greet each of us when we're ready to see her. It's our love and remembrance of her, seeing her running and enjoying herself and helping others that will sustain us and know we all will be alright.

Our personal desires and needs make us believe it is best to live. No one has taught us to be ready for death. However, death is an important step in the evolution process.

The purpose of life is to evolve, not simply to live. We need to remember we are only on earth temporarily, and our departure will be perfectly natural in the evolution of life.

For some reason, it was best for Olivia to have moved onto a different level of existence at this time. There are answers if we are willing to listen. However, it may take months or years, after the pain and anger have subsided in order to listen.

Remember, Life is a Gift and Olivia was a Gift to us.

We now have Olivia to watch over us, and help us welcome her two cousins into the Circle of Life. We are proud to introduce:

From death, there is birth and rejuvenation.

All living things have a Circle of Life:  birth, growth, reproduction, and death are all natural parts of the natural world.


Itís the Circle of Life and it moves us all through despair and hope through faith and love till we find our place on the path unwinding in the Circle of Life.
