Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
August 29, 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

THE WORLD IS BEGINNING TO SEE—ANIMALS HAVE EMPATHY: An August 18 In Defense of Animals article by Laura Bridgeman, entitled “Humpback Whales to the Rescue,” reports on a study and a specific event showing humpback whales rescuing animals of other species. “Back in 2009, marine ecologist Robert Pitman, who conducted the study, witnessed one of these intriguing encounters. A humpback whale intruded into a group of orca whales hunting a Weddell seal. The Mother Nature Network describes the encounter, “In order to better protect the seal, the whale placed [him] safely on [her] upturned belly to keep [him] out of the water. As the seal slipped down the whale’s side, the humpback appeared to use [her] flippers to carefully help the seal back aboard. Finally, when the coast was clear, the seal was able to safely swim off to another, more secure ice floe.” Seeing this amazing act of altruism, Pitman began a search for other eye witness accounts. He found descriptions of 115 such events between 1951 and 2012. Imagine how many more there were that were not witnessed by people. In fact, it’s rare to see humpbacks at such close range at all.

There are thousands of other stories of hippos, cheetahs, dolphins and many animals displaying tender empathy and altruism to help animals from other species, including human beings. Most people who have dogs have experienced profound and sometimes overwhelming empathy and love from their dog companions. Are animals trying to heal us? Do they somehow know how much we suffer from the loss of our connection with them? Do they possess wisdom and purity of heart that humanity lost long ago?

PRAYERS FOR HUMANITY—THAT THE HUMAN SPECIES WILL REGAIN ITS DEEP AND HEALING CONNECTION WITH ANIMALS. We give thanks for the songs of birds, the music of waterfalls, the loving nuzzling of dogs and cats. We give thanks for the rare sightings of animals helping each other and even helping us, despite what our species has done to theirs. We call upon the Divine Loving Universe to help us understand this great mystery and to give us all the strength and vision to bring humanity into its right relation with all other beings. Dear animals of earth—you are showing us in so many ways that you have wisdom and compassion far beyond what people believe. You show us that all beings want and deserve life and freedom. We are telling the world your stories; we are listening to you; we are here, in ever growing numbers, to end speciesism and oppression forever. We call upon Divine Intelligence to guide us as we pray and take action to bring the true nature of humanity into being. Cruelty and violence cannot survive in a world overflowing with Love. That is what we are creating day by day, prayer by prayer, action by action, book by book. The tipping point is near. The Love you bring to this work in your actions, thoughts, prayers, and visions is making it happen.

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
