hurt people hurt people
We will always be violent toward each other as long as we are violent toward animals‚Äö√Ñ√Øhow could we not be?
We carry the violence in our stomachs, in our blood, and in our consciousness. Covering it up and ignoring it doesn‚Äö√Ñ√¥t make it disappear. The more we pretend and hide it, the more, like a shadow, it clings to us and haunts us. The human cycle of violence is the ongoing projection of this shadow.
Prayer Circle for Friday
Prayers for wild animals being trapped, hunted, caged and/or killed for fur, flesh, leather, trophies, the pet trade, etc., and for wild animals being forced into stress and extinction due to loss of habitat.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all free-living animals.
Dear bears, foxes, cougars, deer, alligators, wild horses, prairie dogs, primates, mink, bison, beavers, elephants, birds, fish, and all the other magnificent beings born in freedom and suffering now at the hands of human beings, living in fear of human beings, and mourning the loss of loved ones who have been tortured and either imprisoned or killed.
Together, we bear witness to your suffering, take action to end it forever, and send out an energy field of love and compassion to comfort you and to transform the hearts and souls of those who support the violent oppression of all of you. We send our tears and prayers on wings of love to you.
Our love is all around you. Compassion encircles the earth for each of you and for all beings.
