October 2 is World Day for Farmed Animals. On that day thousands of compassionate people will be taking actions to expose and memorialize the 65 billion land animals around the world who suffer and are killed every year for food. You can go to www.dayforanimals.org to see if there is an action taking place near you.
October 2 is also significant to us as it commemorates Gandhi’s birthday. In 2007 the United Nations General Assembly declared that Gandhi’s birthday would also be considered the International Day of Non-Violence. Gandhi practiced ahimsa toward all beings.
This significant week also contains St. Francis Day on October 4. Because he showed such compassion for animals, St. Francis is known as the patron saint of animals and the environment. His day is often celebrated in churches as a “Blessing of the Animals.”
Wow—what a week! Together, let us look into the energy field of earth on these world changing days and into the true hearts of human beings around the world. As we look with our spirit vision, we will see compassion sparkling and shining everywhere. We can see it falling gently upon each of the farmed animals and the aquatic animals as well and all other animals who are suffering at the hands of people. We can see them feeling that love and reverence that lives in the hearts of all. They are feeling the intense longing among human beings for a non-violent world. We can see people awakening to their true natures and see them filled with the joy of knowing that peace among all beings and love for all creation is happening now and that they are a part of this miracle.
Gandhi taught that there is nothing more powerful than prayer. Thank you, as always, for your powerful prayers, your vision, and your faithful lovingkindness.
Thank you for your faithful prayers and visionary thoughts. Thanks to all of you, compassion is encircling the earth for all beings. Thank you for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy, and Will, Madeleine, and the Circle of Compassion team.
