Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
July 13, 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:


Greetings of love and gratitude from Judy Carman

Adorable Animal YouTubes Induce Oxytocin. Lorena Mucke sends out a daily e-newsletter from the Christian Vegetarian Association which she calls “Take Heart.” In it she shares “devotionals, discussions, inspirational quotes, health tips, recipes and much more.”  Recently Lorena pointed out that sharing YouTube videos of cute animals can increase compassion in people.  She noted that neuroeconomist Paul Zak, found that. "Watching YouTube videos about animals can induce oxytocin release causing us to engage in helping animals or people.”  As we all know there are thousands of videos online showing the cuteness of animals which, in turn, demonstrates that they have feelings, play with each other and other species, form friendships, and display a wide range of emotions.  While showing videos and films that reveal the horror of what human beings do to animals is important, there has been some evidence that some people become desensitized after watching footage of animal cruelty.  It is as if their brains find a way to just numb their feelings about the animals. But, perhaps, it’s much harder to do that if your oxytocin is engaged while watching animals who pull at your heartstrings with their cuteness.

Prayer for the Week for Everyone to Fall in Love with Animals. Action and Prayer is a powerful combination.  This week let’s all send out cute animal videos along with captions about the importance of recognizing their love of life and need to be free.  And with each video or photo we share, let us send it out with a prayer to carry it around the world.  May our actions this week find millions of open hearts; may the videos and photos we send cause millions to fall in love with animals as never before; may the joy that each person feels in viewing the love that animals bring to the world call each one to a vegan life of harmlessness and reverence for life.  We give thanks that love and compassion lie waiting within each human heart; waiting to be awakened by the sight of animals themselves demonstrating just how much love and joy they bring to the world.

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
