Many factions among people teach that the animal kingdom is here for our use, as we see fit, subject to us.
I see it a bit differently.
As the human race becomes ever more desensitized to crime and the harming of one another … as animals are butchered for consumption, and lands, air and waters poisoned, prohibiting the nourishment of souls …
I see the animals as a reminder of gentle caring, unconditional love, and ever grateful presence. They need us to care. They want us to love. We see their examples of how they watch over each other, how they cry when harmed, or their ‘kids’ stripped from them shortly after birth. They are our opportunity to hold on to and nourish that love that dwells in our hearts.
It is difficult to find another human who will love us the way an animal will. Silently the four legged ones, the flying ones, and others … listen to, and love us. They are happy to be of service, longing to be near us when we hurt, easing our pain.
They remind us that love is real.
Without them, we might just forget what love is, considering the repetitive broadcasts of hate and harm and theft and foul … and the ones who act out the programming which they’ve absorbed.
Let us ponder the gracious reminder given to us ~ the beautiful souls put here on earth to keep alive in our hearts the truth that love exists, and that it is very real.
Last evening was a magical night filled with the sweet sound of crickets and frogs, I slept outdoors in the cool air breezes listening to the music they sang.
I woke feeling rested and peaceful, my beautiful friend served avocado on toast, cantaloupe, mango, papaya, yogurt and granola, among many other delicious treats. What a wonderful breakfast feast! More friends arrived to enjoy this special event, sharing hugs, additional breakfast goodies and mutual respect & love for one another.
My hope is that the glasses we wore were not defective and tomorrow we will all see perfectly, or at least as we have seen today. The scene was amazing as the energetic shift of the sun and moon was felt by all.
This scene took my breathe away and left me with a calm that lasted for hours. Even on the 5.5 hour journey home which normally only takes one hour … I relaxed.
As evening approaches once more, I think on the events of today and time spent with truly wonderfulpeople, and I am happy. I am happy that on this day I experienced such blessings, I really couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect.
As I drove to work yesterday morning, I was given the most beautiful birthday present!!! The sun greeted me, and peeked from behind the clouds, showing here, then ducking away and then showing again. Hide and Seek!! I was amazed by this gorgeous sunrise and am excited to see what it brings THIS morning!!
Blessings to begin the new year, the new life. This reminds me of how much ALL life on this planet is loved, the sun keeps showing up for us, growing our foods, providing Vitamin D, giving us warmth, and so much more.
Let us not forget the precious gift we receive each and every day.
The beauty behind the words of this song touches my soul, and I remember … Perhaps you do too.
We all have memories, and if we are fortunate, this is one of them. Enveloping love energies, within and without our bodies and minds, filling our heart until we thought it might burst.
The warmth of love is more than a memory though. When we allow our vulnerabilities to come forth, when we gift ourselves the privilege of experiencing such love, without fear of what others may think of it, we will be free.
My hope is that all people will be able to say, yes, I know what this feels like. My hope is that once they do, they will ensure actions take place in their lives which grow this love like the finest and most beautiful and nourishing garden there ever was.
This morning as I drove to my destination I looked in my rear view mirror and noticed the license plate of the vehicle behind me ended in 333. I thought “hmm that’s odd, usually it’s 444.” So I pondered the triple threes, wondering of the message.
A short time later a vehicle in front of me pulled to the right lane and lo and behold, the vehicle there now had a license plate which ended in 333. Now there was one in front and one behind.
I arrive to my destination and look it up.
The number 3 represents the Holy Trinity, it is also the number of the Holy Spirit, the third person of the trinity.
There are many things the number 3 represents, however, this morning I feel the embrace of Love. I will ride with this all day, and on into the future.
