Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
January 23, 2017

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:

Our Daily Noon Prayer

And Our Prayer for the Week from Judy Carman

“HOW WONDERFUL IS THAT!” (Dylan Winter) I often think that the most healing thing activists can do for themselves is to spend time being with nature in a state of awe and wonder. Dylan Winter, a wildlife photographer, has filmed a truly spectacular miracle--a murmuration of starlings. https://www.youtube.com/embed/88UVJpQGi88 In the video you will see about 200,000 starlings flying together in a graceful sky dance so perfect, so synchronized that we can only guess at how they do it. The human mind wants to figure out how they do it, but the healing and the peace comes from surrendering to the Divine Mystery in front of our eyes. The intelligence, grace, and beauty of these birds is beyond us to understand intellectually. We can only watch and give thanks for the privilege to witness their joy and freedom. Seeing this, and other animals in the wilderness who are free, lifts up our hearts, because, I think, it reassures our spirits—we are on the right track. This is what we want for all beings.

OUR PRAYER FOR THIS WEEK TO LOVE THE WHOLE WORLD: from Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov. This is one of my very favorite prayers, and I thought it fit perfectly with the youtube of the sky dancing starlings.

Love all God’s creation, the whole of it and every grain of sand.

Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light

Love the animals, love the plants, love everything.

If you love everything, you will perceive the Divine Mystery in things.

And once you have perceived it, you will begin to comprehend it ceaselessly

More and more every day. And you will at last come to love

The whole world with an abiding, universal love.

As always, I send my thanks to each of you, dear Prayer Circle members, for

May Divine Wisdom, the animals’ grace, and our true hearts guide us toward ahimsa, peace, liberation, and lovingkindness for all. As always, 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.

With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from Will, Madeleine, Tara and the Circle of Compassion team
