Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
March 16, 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:

Prayer Request Received from Pam:  Pam, like so many of you, has been helping animals all her life. “Their suffering,” she wrote, “is as close to me as my own breath and they are never far from my mind.” I know we can all relate.  That is why we do what we do.   She asked us for a “prayer for the animals of Southeast Asia, especially the dogs and cats of China where they are being cooked alive. Also prayers in Eastern Europe where dogs and cats are being beaten to death and some incinerated alive in traveling incinerators. I live with these images daily and have been for many many years as I work among thousands of others to stop it.”  Dogs and cats are also being eaten on Maui and many other places around the world, and, as we know, a lot of fur trim on clothing is dog and cat fur.  In a previous update, we spoke of animals, and especially “companion” animals, as “guardians of being” in Eckhart Tolle’s words. We know so little about what goes on at the soul level, but anyone who has had a dog or cat friend knows that they spend a great deal of time taking care of us on all levels—body, mind, and spirit.  And yet so many suffer around the world without being given a shred of gratitude or respect.
There is a Native American legend about Dog.  Long ago people and animals lived together in peace, but over time, the people became more and more violent and destructive until one day the animals decided to separate themselves permanently from all humanity.  A great earthquake caused a split in the earth.  The animals stayed on one side while the people were on the other.  Just as the split was getting almost too wide to jump across, Dog leaped over to the human beings.  “Why did you do that?” cried the animals from the other side.  “Because,” Dog replied, “they cannot survive without me.”
Prayer This Week for Dogs and Cats: Dear and precious dog and cat friends, so many times throughout history, you have laid down your lives for us, healed us, comforted us, and let us know we were not alone.  Yet, in spite of that, so many of you are still suffering in the hands of people who do not understand who you really are.  This week our prayers and our love ascend from all of us in this Prayer Circle to you—each one of you.  We ask for guidance and strength to keep teaching and working and speaking on your behalf and to know the best possible ways to bring a final end to all cruelty and violence toward you.  We give thanks that you are here on this earth with us, and we give thanks for all that you have taught us about unconditional love and forgiveness. We see a time coming very soon when all human beings will love and respect you as we do.  It will be a time when human beings finally understand that you are our sacred brothers and sisters, and we will live in peace together. Know deep in your hearts that we will not give up.  On the soul level, we are opening all your cages and holding you in our arms right now and for as long as it takes.     
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 everywhere. 
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 Will, Madeleine, Tara and the Circle of Compassion team
