As perpetrators, we are thus profoundly challenged

Puffins by artist Madeleine TuttleVegInspiration
As perpetrators, we are thus profoundly challenged by the truth-field established by attentive and articulate bystanders.

Eventually, we may respond to the challenge, examine our attitudes and, recognizing our behavior as morally indefensible, cease it and join the ranks of the bystanders.

As bystanders, we are also deeply challenged to respond creatively to the situation with love, understanding, and skillful means, and to strive to live in ever more complete alignment with the values of compassion, honesty, and integrity.

Prayer Circle for Sunday
Prayers for the nations of insects and other small creatures.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all the tiny beings who live in the soil, the trees, the water, and the air, creating harmony and balance with your songs, your pollinating of flowers, your graceful flight, your mysterious transformations, and your miraculous ability to literally create soil in which new plants can take root.

Dear dragonflies, bees, wasps, butterflies, mosquitoes, moths, beetles, cicadas, crickets, spiders, ants, and all of you who suffer immeasurably at the hands of people who do not understand the miracle of who you are, who poison you, stomp on you, and destroy your homes.

You are so small, and many of us who do care about you find ourselves bringing you harm.

We ask for your forgiveness and your help and together we bear witness to your suffering, take action to permanently end it, and send out our 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.

Our love is all around you. Compassion encircles the earth for each of you and for all beings.
