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
Feld Elephants Liberated at Last From
Circus Suffering. If we could hear each other across the miles,
we would all have heard a huge roar of applause, hallelujah’s, and
dancing in the streets when the announcement came that Feld
Entertainment, the parent company of the huge and barbaric Ringling
Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus had agreed to liberate 43
elephants from its circus acts by 2018, according to the AP news. CEO
Kenneth Feld was quoted as saying, “This decision was not easy, but it
is in the best interest of our company, our elephants and our
customers,” According to Feld, they will be “retired” to a Florida
“sanctuary.” This “sanctuary” is mislabeled in that it is being
developed as a breeding facility and zoos are definitely involved in
its policies. However, the Felds cited a “mood shift” among
consumers and local legislation banning exotic animal acts and/or the
use of bullhooks as reasons for their decision. The $270,000.00
settlement for violations of the Animal Welfare Act they had to pay may
have influenced them as well.
Prayer for the Week—For Moods Shifting
into High Gear. We give ecstatic thanks and blessings to
each other and to all those who have stood in the cold, heat, and rain
at circuses, holding signs, handing out information, demonstrating what
bullhooks look like, wearing elephant costumes, showing heart breaking
videos, and never, never, never giving up. We have had signs torn
from our hands, leaflets thrown on the ground, endured rudeness and
violence from angry circus goers, but it has paid off. We shifted
the mood enough. You shifted the mood enough. Human hearts
can open to animals and their needs and their suffering. We have
been praying for this kind of progress for decades. Action
combined with Prayer (or focused thought) works. Human
consciousness is rising! May we shed tears of joy and gratitude
today, this week, and know so completely that we will stay the course;
we will not stop here; we know what to do.
And let us also pray and visualize these 43 elephants, followed soon
after by all the other circus and zoo elephants, finding only kindness,
gentleness, respect, and love from their new caretakers. We ask
for strength to be ever-watchful for any signs of mistreatment in this
new phase of non-circus living. And while we keep watch over the
elephants, let us pray powerfully for the liberation of all the other
circus animals who continue to suffer horribly at the hands of their
dominators. We see them all finishing their final circus acts and
traveling in comfort and safety to sanctuaries, true sanctuaries.
We see all the circuses in the world now transforming into spectacular,
entertaining shows in which only willing and able human beings
perform. The mood has shifted, and it is shifting in the
direction of a world at peace for all beings.
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
