A Ghost Dog. Many of us see them. Are they out there or in us? Why do they exist? Can Ghost Dogs tell us more about the after life?
When I go out for walks, I still feel Jay's presence after 8 months since his death. He is very real to me still. I can feel him. I can smell him. I can sense his presence. He talks to me. What is going on?
Am I just a looney? Is he a ghost out there or is he part of me?
I suspect some kind of field effect. I suspect that he is inside of me. That he is emotionally part of me.
For I suspect that we live not only in a surface field of gravity etc also in an emotional field. Just as we now know a lot about the fields of electro magnetism, I bet that in the future, we will know a lot more about how our emotional fields work.We both give energy into the field and we also receive it. The more we love another, the more our own personal fields collapse into each other's.
Why do so many people feel their dog's presence? Why does this happen so often with dogs and less with people that we love?
I think that dogs make this easier because their strategy as a species has been to make themselves loved and appreciated by us. At first this might have been confined to work - guarding hunting herding etc. but the dogs who could read our field best got the best treatment and evolution did its work. Their niche is in tuning into our field. They can melt the hardest human heart.
Dogs have become the safest and most trustworthy love companion in modern life. Just as most of the rest of our life has become brittle and corporate and all about who wins, dogs remain true. They just love us.
So if I am right, then our emotional fields must blend. Part of us lives in them and part of them lives in us. Like a human couple lost in a oneness after loving sex, there is a unity.
So I think that this is why, when I am open, not busy, not preoccupied, not thinking too much, he comes back. I can also call on him and he comes. Not of course in body - but in his spirit. So he is here for as long as I don't lose myself in busyness.
And so then this must be true for those humans we love too. But the barrier might be love. The ideal dog gives his all to us but do we give our all to each other? Another lesson that dogs can give us - to love more. And if we do, we too may live on in the hearts of those that love us.
