Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update
April 28, 2014

Our prayers for all animals continue to circle the earth, to uplift humanity's consciousness, and to bless the animals themselves. Thank you for joining people around the world who are praying this prayer in many different languages but all with the same love:


Yesterday I was on my walk near my house in the country.  Some new cows had been delivered to a pasture I frequently pass.  When they saw me, they came toward me as a tight knit group, all talking among themselves—“who is this stranger?”  I started singing to them (Cows seem to love that or at least are very curious about it.), and they drew closer until they were almost to the fence.  The scout of the group ventured clear to the fence.  As I leaned forward, she stretched out her tongue as far as she could to lick my cheek.  So I started my day with a most wonderful cow kiss.  With each cow kiss, let us become ever more dedicated to liberating them.
When Will and Madeleine were on their recent Australia speaking tour, Menkit Prince, a vegan poet, gave them this poignant piece to share with all of us.  It is sad but encourages and emboldens us to speak out all the more for these friendly, loving, intelligent cows of the world.
I hear a mother cow in the distance
Crying for her calf
Her urgent message carries along soundwaves
Transmitting the pain, the agony
From her heart to mine
And from her heart to every heart
That hears and feels
Tears fall down my face
My throat constricts
My mouth dries
She goes on and on and on
Groaning and moaning
Hour after hour after hour
Her calf is all alone
With other calves all alone
All feeling their mothers calling them
Far, far away
Never again to see her face
Smell her sweet body
Taste her sweet nourishing milk
Feel her tongue licking them
And see the love shining from her eyes
She loved me – she was my world!
Gone now – gone forever.
Every day all over the world
Millions and millions of mother cows
Cry in vain for their babies
Ripped away without a thought for their aching heart
By humans well trained to switch off
And feel nothing
The humans drink our milk
Pour it in their tea
Over their cereal
Solidify it into butter, yoghurt and cheese
For their cakes, pies, cookies
Pancakes, soups, spreads,
Pizzas and ice cream
Our milk floods the land
Hidden in cans lining supermarket shelves
In bottles of drinks
Dried into packages of food
Filling human and domestic animal’s bodies
Travelling in their blood
To their cells
Breathing through their pores
Being excreted in their faeces
Down the drain
Vomited into the sea
Making people, the air, the land and the oceans
All sick
The human race is cursed
By their addiction to our milk
Never having been properly weaned themselves
From their own mother
She cries again
A simple cry - a cry of love
A cry of a heart breaking
Into thousands of pieces
Over and over
With each baby
To her grave
Precious baby of mine
So cute so playful and funny
I loved the sound you made
When you tried to moo
Your total devotion to me
Your need brought out the best in me
Taught me how to love and protect you
And how to cherish each moment
You were the sunshine of my life
All I ever wanted was you!
In deep space mystical celestial harmonies reflect
The magnificence of life everywhere
But for one sound,
A sound that shatters the divine matrix
Piercing the core of the Universal Heart
The cries of billions of lonely cows rising up as one sound
A sound so loud it is heard across universes and galaxies
Trapped in a timeless vacuum
For countless aeons
And making angels weep
Buddhas look down with compassion
at the Planet of the Lonely Cows.

Our Prayer This Week For a Planet of The Joyful Cows
This week let us rededicate ourselves in prayer and action to end forever the kidnapping of baby cows, the stealing from them of their own milk and their mothers’ kisses; and the violent raping and killing of their mothers.  We give thanks for each other and for this prayer circle. We need each other because there is so much grief in our hearts for the ongoing suffering of these mothers and babies.  We give thanks for the Divine Feminine Energy that grows ever stronger.  We feel that Energy in our hearts.  Our spirits join with this force of Divine Nurturing Love. Through us, it is becoming more and more visible to all humanity. There is no power greater than this Love.  We see it growing in all human hearts and transforming this earth into a Planet of the Joyful Cows and All Beings as it was always meant to be.     

With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy, and Will, Madeleine, and the Circle of Compassion team.
