Greetings of love and gratitude from
Thomas Jackson’s “Compassion Project”
film is underway.
It is “a documentary film that strives to
inspire and encourage those already on a spiritual or religious path to
open up their circle of compassion and embrace all creation…” Our
own Will Tuttle is in the film. Also, Lisa Levinson and I will be
interviewing Thomas on April 14. You can register for that call
I recently attended a church of an acquaintance at which they were
making plans to roast two pigs for a church picnic. This film and
anything we can do to help people of faith connect the core teaching of
love and compassion to the suffering of animals is desperately needed.
This Week’s Prayer for spiritual and
religious leaders and seekers to join us in this sacred work of
liberating animals from human domination and violence:
give thanks for Thomas Jackson’s Compassion Project and all the books,
films, and other tools we have been given. With these tools we
will help those who walk a spiritual path to understand that there is
another step humanity must take if we are to become the loving beings
we are meant to be. It is not enough to love our human neighbors.
We have neighbors all around us clothed in fur and feathers and
scales. Yet while leaders preach love for one another, animals
suffer and die by the billions for lack of that love. All this
week, in moments of quiet and meditation, let us send visions to
preachers, rabbis, teachers and seekers everywhere—visions of a world
embraced in the energy of pure love for all beings. May they See
what we See as we imagine the beauty and peace of this world as it is
meant to be. May they quickly believe that, with their help, we
can bring love and liberation to all animals. With their help we
can free humanity from the chains that keep us tethered to cycles of
violence—as we harm others, so we are harmed. As we break the
hearts of others, so our own hearts break. In our moments of
prayer and quiet contemplation, let us feel how close they all are to
this transformation and rejoice. As we send out this energy field
of love and peace together, always remember that every tiny bit of love
that shines forth from us is never, ever lost. May all hearts be
renewed and transformed into hearts of love and liberation for all
beings. Our spirits greet the spirits of all people and all beings and
know the truth.
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
