Greetings of love and gratitude from
Valentine’s Day is Drawing Near:
It’s a day when many hope for a sign of love from someone special and
children are encouraged to send greetings of friendship and love to
classmates and relatives. Love is definitely in the air.
While that sounds like just a saying, spiritually and energetically it
is absolutely true. The “air” or the sacred space all around us
is filled with thoughts of love, just as it is on some other
holidays. Yet, sadly, as we know, the other species of earth are
hardly thought of at all with valentines and love in mind. In
fact, many valentine dinners will be celebrated ironically and
disconnectedly over dead bodies and milk chocolates full of the
suffering of mother and baby cows.
Our Prayerful Vegan Valentine for All
This week, let us each find a special animal—a
dog, a cat, maybe a horse, or a pig or cow. Let us find a way to
give them a valentine. It could be a long hug, a good belly rub,
or something they just love to eat for a special treat. Let us be
right there, as present as we can possibly be with that dear ambassador
of the animal world. As we hold them and caress them and give
them our unconditional love, let us see our love for them and their
love for us becoming magnified and expanding out in larger and larger
ripples of infinite love for all beings everywhere. Let us
imagine and feel all the animals somehow, through divine mystery,
feeling our caresses and our commitment to comfort and love them
wherever they are. As we do this, let us feel the joy in our
hearts that comes from knowing this very real love is changing the
world and bringing freedom to all. That joy we feel is very key,
because feeling it while we are sending love amplifies and expands our
vegan valentines even more powerfully.
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
Will, Madeleine, Tara and the Circle of Compassion team
