Hello and Namaste from Judy Carman
This week we are riding a wave of
international love for animals.
For one thing, if you
joined us last week for the Memorial and Fast for Farmed Animals,
sponsored by the Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM), you were in good
company. According to FARM, 10,000 people from 84 countries
joined in the Memorial and Fast. There were surely thousands more
who were unable to fast but who added their positive intentions and
prayers, In addition to that momentous energy field, more
love for animals was created by the many Blessings for the Animals that
were celebrated this past weekend at thousands of churches in honor of
St. Francis Day. Even though those blessing ceremonies are mainly
for companion animals, nevertheless, on a metaphysical level they
reveal the deep human yearning to reconnect with our non-human brothers
Let us bring that deep yearning into
its true and loving manifestation with our actions and prayers.
This longing for connection has taken many distorted and destructive
forms over the centuries. Zoos, aquariums, circuses, dog and
horse races, even hunting—all reveal our need to reconnect. But because
of the human mindset that we must dominate the “weak,” all these
efforts have led to unimaginable horrors for animals. We have a chance
now, as visionaries, to see the truth behind these distorted behaviors
and to elevate human consciousness to its highest expression of
nonviolence, love, compassion, and reverence for all life. The
love for animals that was created last week brings us even closer to
our vision. We give thanks that every bit of love brought into
this world, no matter how tiny, can never die. And so this week
we celebrate that Divine Love for all beings is growing ever stronger
in every heart and soul. The stronger it gets the closer we come
to the liberation of all beings. We ask for help to continually
demonstrate love and “be the change” so that others can believe that
peace for all beings is possible. We give thanks for our deep and
precious kinship with you, dear animals, and for the vision that we
have been given of a world at peace for everyone.
