Christmas's wishlist

Christmas should be everyday in our hearts and in our life's. 
If we carry unconditional love, peace and charity in our actions then we can say that we celebrate it everyday. 
It is a time for we to reflect in what it really matters for us. For me, my beloved one's, charity and contributing to end the suffering of any animal or human being are the most important things

Therefore, this month i have made more donations to animal charity, i have sent more words of joy and encouragement to person's in need and ended any action that might cause suffering to animals or person's. 

We can do that, we can manage our actions so they can't harm other's: by not eating meat we are putting an end to all the animals that are murdered everyday on slaughterhouses, by not buying any cloth/accessory with fur or leather we are saying no to the animals that are kept alive in tiny cages and confined to a horrendous short life just for their skin, by boycotting all the brands that harm animals we are saying no to animals tests and their suffering, by just buying cruelty-free products from this approved list we are ending animals hell in Earth. 
It's just too simple to be true but it is. 

In fact, my wishlist for this year is that everyone start doing these simple things which can really change the World. I believe this is the Christmas's wishlist of the animals too. 
And my pets would add a big bone, lots of caring and walks with their human best friend and love, just the same unconditional love they have for us. 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Where did you go?

10 of December of 2012

Today has been one month since i last saw you. I can feel you, i can imagine you, even dream of you but i cannot see you and this is very hard.

The hardest thing is not knowing for sure if we will ever meet again, not knowing for sure if you still alive, not knowing for sure if you still around me. I believe you are.
When a person you love or animal dies, you wonder where did he went.

There are several religions and beliefs which carry a theory, an explanation but the best one is the one you believe in to be true. No one can tell you for sure because we are all humans with our own experiences which make us believe in something. And others may not understand them and that is ok.  We don't need other's approvals to our beliefs. 

I have met some Jehovah's friends who according to them we sleep when we die until God remember us and give us life again if we behaved right . According to them animals aren't mentioned in the Bible and one of them even said that there are a lot of animals and there is no space to bring them all to life. Well, there are a lot of humans too, why are our life's more important then other's animals? I have told them that I can still feel my dog around me, that he gave me several signs that he is here and according to them, again, all contact with spirits is Evil! The bible say that all persons who are in some way in contact with spirits or spiritual are serving the Devil. Guess what, in the Inquisition time people were burned alive and called witches, are these times we still living? Who wrote the Bible? Men inspired by God.. and we all know that in past times Church and Politics unified themselves not to serve People but to control them and serve their interests.. So did men changed the Bible, rewrite the Bible, changed some info to their own purposes? why not? Religion it is one of the main causes of war nowadays. Shouldn't all religions unify us and not turn us apart? Shouldn't it be enough for us to believe in charity, in good actions and live an honorable life? i have been raised as a Christian and i don't go well with any kind of obsession which turn us against each other.

I believe in my Heart that animals and persons turn into Spirits, that they live in a Paradise and there lies the real life because the lives we are living here are just a short passage, a sort of a test.

Dingo was and still is in our hearts, in our lives. I can feel him so can my other two dogs. I am hurt by the way he left but he wasn't here to serve me but to be my best friend. I learned so much with him.Wish all humans could respect and learn with animals who are magnanimous in everything they are.

With love to Dingo

Dingo still and will always be around :)

Here lies an article from Animal Cruelty-Free Exposed:

" If you have ever suffered the loss of a beloved pet, you might have wondered at some point if you would ever meet up with your close friend again. You are not alone with such thoughts. One of the most frequently asked questions online is, “Do pets go to heaven?” 
Christianity holds that every living being, from the tiniest insect to the largest whale, has a chance at entering the pearly gates. Psalm
145:-9-10,13,15-21 reads, “God loves all His creation and has made plans for all His children and the lesser creatures to enjoy His eternal Kingdom.”

Don’t expect to see your favorite individual plant in heaven, however. That’s because the Book of Genesis suggests all animals have souls, but plants do not. Genesis 1:30: “To every animal of the earth, and to every bird of the heavens and to every creeping thing on the earth, in which is a living soul, every green plant is given for food.”

According to Rabbi Howard Jaffe of Temple Har Shalom in New Jersey, the attitude of Judaism towards the afterlife might be summed up as, “We really do not know, but if there is a life after this one, and a reward for what we do, then surely it will be dependent upon the kind of life we have lived — therefore, let us strive to follow God's path for us as closely and as enthusiastically as possible, for then we will surely know all manner of rewards, especially the one of seeing a world that is a better place for our efforts.” Religious texts hold that Yahweh, the god of Israel, did bestow the breath of life into the animals that flourished in the Garden of Eden, suggesting that each non-human animal too can
become nephesh, or a “living soul.”

Islam, however, takes a different view. As Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad explained at The London Mosque, “Every animal does not have options to do good deeds and bad deeds, so there is no examination for them. Their souls are not preserved, moreover, they are not fully developed and mature, because what is soul, after all, without consciousness.”

Buddhists regard animals as sentient beings capable of feeling suffering. According to the Mahayana school, animals possess what is known as “Buddha nature,” and may then become enlightened similar to the way that humans can within this belief system. Nevertheless, animals are thought to inhabit a distinct “world,” called Tiryagyoni in Sanskrit, which is separated from humans not by space, but by a state of mind. The doctrine of rebirth additionally holds that any human can be reborn as an animal, and any animal may be reborn as a human, reinforcing the inter-connectivity of all life.

Archaeological finds show that, before these and other more modern religions emerged, numerous ancient societies also believed in an all-inclusive afterlife. Mummified dogs, cats and other animals, for example, are frequently found in early Egyptian tombs. If a master died, it’s thought that his or her pets, not to mention servants, were killed in order that they could all remain together in the afterlife.

Lifespan was generally shorter in those days, so sacrificing a short time on Earth for the sake of an eternal existence must have seemed worthwhile.

A phenomenon that has been studied by both religious scholars and scientists is “near death experience.” Many people who have come close to death have reported seeing a bright light, moving down a tunnel, reliving memories (including ones involving pets), and feeling as though they were outside of their own body, watching themselves.

Kevin Nelson and a research team at the University of Kentucky analyzed data on over 13,000 Europeans and found that almost 6 percent had experienced such an out-of-body experience.

Nelson and his colleagues suspect that this occurs in the brain’s arousal system, which regulates different states of consciousness, including REM sleep and wakefulness. "We found it surprising that out-of-body experience with sleep transition seemed very much like out-of-body experience during near death," Nelson said. While no research, to my knowledge, has yet proved that non-human animals also have these experiences, my guess is it’s possible, due to brain structure similarities.

Beyond such out-of-body experiences, if you really want to have a mind-blowing moment, and be fully with it at the time, investigate a physics concept called string theory. Some individuals who work in this field envision our universe as having at least nine spatial dimensions, six of which they think are hidden and undetectable from us. The reality we experience, according to this view, happens to consist of three dimensions.

Andreas Karch, a University of Washington assistant professor of physics, and Lisa Randall, a physics professor at Harvard, modeled
how the universe was arranged right after the big bang. To make an extremely long story short, they believe the math points to other realities, either three- or seven-dimensional, which could be hidden from our perception in the universe, Karch said, "There are regions that feel 3D. There are regions that feel 5D. There are regions that feel 9D. These extra dimensions are infinitely large. We just happen to be in a place that feels 3D to us.”

In terms of physical evidence, Fido’s bodily remains may literally push up daisies, but the story is more complicated than that.

Rene Severijnen, a pediatric surgeon at Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center in the Netherlands, and with Ger Bongaerts, a biochemist and microbiologist also at Radboud. They believe there may be a state of being between life an death, “best defined as ‘resting life,’” Severijnen said.

Additionally, the basic building blocks of all life—atoms—don’t normally die at all. "The death of an atom means that matter is converted to energy," according to Bongaerts. "This happens during an explosion of a nuclear fusion bomb."

Although growth, metabolism and other bodily processes stop as soon as the body dies, "the degradation processes go on and may even increase" In the end, he says, all the complex compounds are degraded again to the smallest compounds, such as water, carbon dioxide and ammonia. These compounds may then fuel other organisms, and never die at all.

As you can see, religion, physics, chemistry and other disciplines address the big questions, such as “Do pets go to heaven?” from
slightly different angles. All offer hope that there is meaning, order and significance to life, and therefore death.

Faith and belief also hold their own power over us, which has been demonstrated in many scientific studies. When British veterinarian and author James Herriot, known for his All

Creatures Great and Small stories, was asked if animals join their human friends in an afterlife, he replied, “I do believe it. With all my heart I believe it.”
