Do we understand animals?

by visionary artist Madeleine Tuttle

Bear by artist Madeleine TuttleVegInspiration
We have not begun to scratch the surface of understanding animals. How can we know what it is to swim as whales, at home in the ocean depths and migrating thousands of miles, speaking in underwater songs and breathing together in conscious harmony, or to fly in a flock of sandpipers, whirling in an effortless synchronicity, fifty birds as one, or to burrow as prairie dogs, creating complex underground communities with virtually endless chambers, passageways, and interactions?

Prayer Circle for Today
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, wolves, prairie dogs, primates, mink, bison, beavers, elephants, birds, fish, whales, 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.
