Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
February 23, 2015
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
Missouri Puppy Mills Decline But Dogs
Still Suffer: After a bill was passed several years ago
increasing inspections and restrictions on puppy mills, over 1,200 have
closed their doors in that state. Progress is being made, awareness is
being raised, and millions of dogs go to sleep every night safe and
loved by their families. Yet there are millions of other dogs who are
still suffering in puppy mills or being eaten, chained, fought, beaten,
experimented on, or abandoned. In his book, Guardians of Being
(illustrated by “Mutts” creator Patrick McDonnell), Eckhart Tolle notes
“The vital function that pets fulfill in this world hasn’t been fully
recognized. They keep millions of people sane. They have become
Guardians of Being.” The debt that humanity owes to “pet” animals
is beyond measure. And yet they continue to suffer atrocities by
people who cannot see who they are.
Prayer for the Week for “Pet”
Animals: In his book, Tolle goes on to say: “Love is a
deep empathy with the other’s “Beingness. You recognize yourself, your
essence, in the other. And so you can no longer inflict suffering
on the other.” This week we give thanks—a thanks that radiates
out like the rays of the sun from our hearts. Our gratitude is
for the blessing of being able to feel this deep empathy. And it
is for being able to recognize ourselves in the dogs and cats, indeed
in all the animals of the world. A great joy fills us in wave upon wave
as we look into the eyes of one of our “guardians of being.” We
send this joy, this true-heart-knowing out to all the people of the
world who are doing harm to these precious ambassadors of love.
As we breathe deeply, and imagine, we see each one of these people
being gently filled with the light of truth and overcome with joy as
their hearts expand, tails wag, they drop their weapons, and their
hands reach out to caress their guardians of being. Dear dogs and
cats, “pets” of all nations, and all animals everywhere--you are not
alone. You are not alone. We will never leave you. We are
showing the world who you really are.
As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you,
dear Prayer Circle members, 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.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace
for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from
