Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
October 12, 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

Indigenous Peoples Day is October 12: What some still celebrate as Columbus Day in the U.S., a growing number of social justice activists now recognize as Indigenous Peoples Day.  This change, of course, was done in order to acknowledge the truth.  Columbus was not a hero to be honored but an individual who, among others, was responsible for the disease, kidnappings, rapes, and genocide of many millions of native people. He and others like him personified the dominator mindset that has brought violence and tragedy to indigenous people and animals all over the world.  It is that very mindset that connects all social justice issues, including animal rights.  As we know, much of the violence and murder inflicted on indigenous people is still justified by the perpetrators by referring to them as animals.  And if they are animals, then it is acceptable to dominate and exploit them.  So when we, as animal rights activists, question that mindset, we are attempting to overturn a nearly universally held belief.  We are saying—we are all animals, and it is not ok to exploit, kill, enslave, or imprison anyone, no matter who they are.

Prayer for the Week—That this week of social justice for indigenous people will help everyone make the connection that animal liberation is human liberation.  The same dominator worldview is at the root of violence toward all beings.  We give thanks for these courageous activists who are working to bring human consciousness to its full flowering into compassionate love and respect for all people.  We give thanks that they have moved the world so much closer to understanding that brutal and self-centered domination of others is the wrong path. There is a strong foundation in place now—let us hold the vision this week of those words—animal liberation is human liberation—touching every heart, like butterflies on flowers. And so it is.        

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
