From "The Pathway of Roses" by Christian D. Larson

  When you see some one leaving the body you
do not weep if you are spiritually awakened;
you know that the leave-taking is but seeming;
there is neither going not coming in the spirit;
there is no separation in spirit; in the spirit all
are one in His love. Though the soul that seems
to depart becomes invisible to physical sight,
still that soul is ever visible to spiritual sight. To
be consciously in the spirit is to see all those who
live in the spirit whatever the form may be. In
the consciousness of the spirit the manifestation
of the form is secondary; whether the form be
physical or ethereal is not of first importance;
but to know the spirit, to be conscious of the
spirit, and to know that all souls are eternally in
the spirit--that is the first importance.  That
soul that seems to have gone, has not gone; you
who are in the spirit, can feel her life, her presence
and her love just the same; and you are wide
awake to the fact that she still lives. Her ex-
 istence is just as real to you as it was before,
because in the spirit, all souls are real whether they
manifest in this world or in some other world.
They are all in God's sublime world, and when
you are spiritually conscious your eyes are open
to the splendor and glory of that world.
