Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
August 18, 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:


My Mother’s Eyes
Last week I wrote an update entitled, “My Mother’s Eyes” for all mothers in honor of my own mother who recently passed away.  As it turned out, many of you kindly sent your condolences to Will, not realizing that that update was written by me.  Happily, Will’s mother is very well.  So we felt it was important to let everyone know that.  And we realized that it is not clear who does actually write these updates—well, it is almost always me, Judy Carman, author of Peace to All Beings and co-founder of the Circle of Compassion Prayer Circle for Animals.  I love writing these updates from my heart to yours and for the animals.
Highway Memorial
Last week I stopped for fuel at a truck stop along I-70 in Kansas.  Not just one, but three transport trucks full of cows on upper and lower levels, were there refueling.  When this happens to us, we are filled with anguish for the cows and an overwhelming need to DO something.  I went over to the trucks.  I was going to hang one of my prayer flags on one, but it was flapping in the wind and startled the cow nearest me.  So I put the flag away and just stood there looking into her eyes trying not to cry.  I apologized to her for frightening her and apologized to her and to all of them for being treated this way by human beings.  I wanted to send all of them peaceful energy to help them endure.  I worked at not imagining the fate awaiting them because I believe that animals can pick up on our emotions as well as images in our minds.  Mostly I relied on our prayer that I use so often.  “Dear cows—I see you and I love you.” I see you for who you really are—my beloved friend and a sacred being worthy of immense respect and love.
As the trucks drove away, it occurred to me that there are many highways dedicated to human men and a few to women  But all the highways should instead be memorial highways for the animals who are transported without mercy to their deaths every single day.  This week let us make  every highway, where the death trucks drive, a Memorial Highway for the Animals.  We can do this in our hearts and minds.  And let us know that someday “down the road” these transport trucks will no longer carry animals to their deaths.  Instead they will have been recycled into art and functional things that bring joy to earth.  And when we see the newly installed signs saying “Memorial Highway for the Animals,” we will know that finally all those animals who have died are being honored, and all living animals are free. We give thanks for this vision, and we send endless love and comfort to all those confined in slaughter bound trucks.  This week of prayer is for them.

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