Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
December 8, 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:
"COMPASSION ENCIRCLES THE EARTH FOR ALL BEINGS EVERYWHERE"
Greetings of love and gratitude from
Our Mission--To Help People Experience
Love For All: The famous environmentalist, Thomas Berry,
“We will not save
what we do not love. It is also true we will
neither love nor save what we do not experience as sacred.”
Although he was speaking of the earth, his plea applies perfectly to
animals as well. A recent study showed that test subjects were more
likely to go vegan when they learned that animals have emotions, love
each other, play, and care for each other, than when they were shown
pictures of animals suffering. So one of our tasks is to help people
experience the sacred spirit, the Divine Mystery, and the love and joy
that animals feel; indeed, to help them see how very like us, animals
are. In fact, if Berry’s statement is accurate, human beings must
learn to love animals before they can stop using and eating them.
The Worldwide Season of Love is With
Us Now: Wherever we go over the next few weeks we will see
and hear prayers, pleas, greeting cards, and songs envisioning Love and
Peace. It is the time of year when many people rekindle their
hope for a world without war and hunger. This week let us focus
laser-like on the vision that, during this heart-opening time of year,
people all over the world will have a personal experience of an
animal’s love, personality, and sacredness. In our vision let us
imagine it happening in many different ways—perhaps in a visit to an
animal sanctuary or perhaps it will be a chance encounter with a cow
looking into their eyes or a pig gently caring for her babies or a
couple of rabbits playing gleefully with each other in the snow.
And as we envision these events, let us see an energy field of love
surrounding the person and the animal they are seeing. As that
happens, they both become in synch with the universe and with the deep
longing for connection that dwells within us all. In our vision,
we can see a beam of light from the person’s heart to the animal’s
heart. And because we are one with these beautiful, sacred people
and animals, our hearts fill with ecstasy as we bear witness to these
miracles. Know that, because of your dedication and your compassion,
this is happening right now.
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.
