Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
October 20, 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:


Greetings of love and gratitude from Judy Carman
A Sharp Beaked, Soft Hearted Grackle Saves the Day.  The Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Kendalia, Texas, is home and healing place to many injured animals.  After many years of rescuing animals, the heart-warming stories of animal empathy and love number in the thousands.  One such story, told by founder Lynn Cuny, tells of an injured grackle who escaped from her holding pen in the WRR building and proceeded to elude all attempts at retrieving her.  Meanwhile, a tiny starling baby was stable and eating, but, as Lynn put it, she was “missing that spark that tells us the will to live was alive…”  She was clearly depressed and traumatized by the thoughtless act of a person who had thrown her nest with her and her siblings in it, into a trash can.  So it happened that the grackle, who was healing nicely and still loose in the building, found her way to the baby starling.  The presence of the beautiful black bird filled the baby with comfort.  Her eyes were now bright and open as she called to her new friend.  “From that day until the day they were set free, the grackle and starling calmed and cared for one another; they healed the pain of the past and found in each other what no one else could give them, " said Lynn.

Prayers for the Birds as They Migrate this Fall.  Let us give thanks for the birds.  Their beauty, the grace they show us as they fly, and the way they uplift our hearts as we watch them soar above us in the sky.  We give thanks for all the people, like Lynn, who are teaching us that birds have personalities, feelings, and compassion for other beings.  May we find ways every day to help people understand that birds are our precious, intelligent, and awe inspiring neighbors who deserve lives of freedom from human interference.  As our winged and feathered friends migrate this fall, we pray and hold the focused thought that hunters gazing skyward are suddenly struck, as if by lightning, by the Divine Mystery of these birds, by the love they show to each other, and by the Truth—that these birds are not ours to kill or harm in any way. And let us envision a planet where there are enough resting places for all of them with abundant non-toxic food and water to sustain them on their journeys.  Let us envision city lights being dimmed at night so as not to confuse the inner compass of these sky travelers. Dear Birds, who share this precious planet with us, please forgive us for the harm we have caused you. We hold you in our hearts; we send love and gratitude to each one of you as you fly above us; we bless you on your journeys; and we will be your voice until everyone understands that we are here to help and protect you and never ever harm you.  Namaste.  We see you and we love you.  
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.
