Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
October 13, 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:


Hello and Namaste from Judy Carman
Innocent Frogs and Macho Boys  I was with my granddaughters last weekend at a park.  Because it had recently rained, there were a lot of tiny frogs hopping about in the ditches.  The girls came running to me at one point and said, “Grammy, come quick.  There are some mean boys killing frogs.”  At first the boys denied doing anything, but finally confessed.  Interestingly, even though they were so young, they already had been programmed to defend their actions by saying that I couldn’t say anything if I ate meat.  When I explained that I don’t eat meat, they said that God gave them a choice to eat meat.  That, of course, gave me the opportunity to say that—yes we do have a choice. Choosing love is the best way to go for all of life.

Meanwhile, my granddaughters and some of their girlfriends had created a little house for the frogs, complete with a sofa made out of sticks, a hot tub made out of a bottle cap, a bouquet of tiny flowers, and other thoughtful things to make the frogs happy.  One frog was even sitting on the sofa.  We made sure the boys saw it, and I kept my eye on them for the rest of our visit to the park.  There is so much pressure on boys to be macho and tough.  Many of them have been traumatized early on by witnessing a male relative or friend killing an animal and being told not to cry or have empathy for the animals. Margaret Mead said that “One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a child is to kill or torture an animal and get away with it.”

Prayers for the Boys and Frogs of this World. 
This week, let us send our prayers and focused thoughts out to young boys everywhere and to those who influence them. Boys are born innocent and loving.  A refrain in a John Denver song goes like this: “For the children and the flowers are my sisters and my brothers.  Their laughter and their loveliness could clear a cloudy day.  And the song that I am singing is a prayer to nonbelievers.  Come and stand beside us.  We can find a better way.” In spirit let us stand beside the boys of earth and help them hold on to “their laughter and their loveliness.”  Let us see an upwelling of love so powerful all around them that they are able to “see” the truth that all life is sacred and that they can live without harming others.  And let us see their parents and teachers transformed by this empathy and love for all beings that the boys so powerfully demonstrate. Also, we give thanks for our deep and precious kinship with you, dear frogs.  We ask for divine protection for all of you and for all animals. 

As always, I send my thanks to each of you for joining this circle of compassion and shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all beings will live in peace together.

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