Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
January 4, 2016

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

Death in Texas: Orca Unna died along with thousands of cows.  Last week Unna, an orca who suffered at Sea World in San Antonio, Texas, died at the early age of 18.  Two other orcas have died there in the last six months.  According to In Defense of Animals (IDA), she is the 38th Sea World orca to die young.  She was born in Orlando, the daughter of Tilikum (featured in the film Blackfish) and taken from her imprisoned mother at age 6. She never knew freedom. In the wild, she could have possibly lived to be 100 years of age.  IDA honored her with these words:   “RIP Unna. And may your premature death serve to END this absurd cruelty once and FOR ALL.”

Meanwhile, Texas also witnessed the deaths of thousands of dairy cows who perished in a winter storm.  If these cows had been free to live normal lives, they very likely would have sensed the coming storm and travelled to safe places.  Also, there would not have been such a huge population of them in one place.  But human arrogance and lust for power over others has created these totally unnatural, torturous, and cruel conditions for the orcas trapped at Sea World, cows trapped in dairy factories, and billions of other innocent animals around the world.

A Prayer for Human Beings to Really See  What We Have Done to the Animals: We ask for forgiveness for ourselves and all people for the crimes committed by our species against innocent animals.  We give thanks that we have been able to break through the programming that made us think it was morally acceptable to dominate, exploit, and kill animals.  And with passionate love filling our hearts for all the living, we hold a vision of billions of people suddenly SEEING the insanity, immorality, and cruelty of what is being done to captive orcas, the dairy cows, and all animals. We see people everywhere taking the vow of ahimsa, nonviolence, and harmlessness along with us.  We give thanks that the flame of love for all beings burns in every human heart, We see that little flame burning brighter and brighter.  And we feel such joy as we envision a future in which humanity no longer brings destruction and pain to earth, but instead—love, healing, and tenderness. 

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
