ANIMALS ARE PARTNERS IN OUR SPIRITUALITY
"It is an important and popular fact that things are not always what they seem. For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man - for precisely the same reasons." ~Douglas Adams, The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy
I have just come back from a trip with two of my beautiful kids and beloved. We saw the stage production of the Lion King. One of our stops was a Dolphin exhibit. Not to my surprise my daughter immediately identified with them and one in particular. It was not coincidental that on our way back we visited my mother and that my daughter made a powerful connection with her, whom she had not seen in a number of years. My mother is in a home in the city of Loma Linda, California.
My Mother is also very tuned to the animal world. She loves all animals and has always encouraged us to be animal lovers. It is only now that I fully understand her message of a spiritual life. A message that had been hidden by the trials and tribulations of our life.
I implore you all to take the time to appreciate the animals of this planet and allow your heart to open to all living things and understand the true meaning of life .Those beautiful creatures have the ability to bring peace into your life in areas where maybe you have some turbulence, causing you to lose sight of what the true treasures of your heart are.
