There is more to this than a simple butterfly. The transformation of the caterpillar into a butterfly means the caterpillar must die and the butterfly must be born. Most people never consider this as the caterpillar and the butterfly are both the same life. So, too, it is with people. When the human body begins to die, it is natural for all of those involved to be greatly saddened. From the human body's death emerges the spiritual butterfly. Those persons who are joyful, yet are often in the presence of people who are dying, must be butterfly watchers in secret.
These precious souls are witnesses to the continuation of life and not the final end of it.
