Am I the only one who gets this upset, I thought to myself as I sat in the car crying? Maybe I’m just too sensitive. Does anyone else fantasize about moving to a cabin in the middle of nowhere, away from cars and roads and anything that might cause harm to wildlife?
It was a Sunday afternoon and I needed some quiet time in nature. The best and closest place I could find was a school playground. I gave in to the shade of a tree, sat down and closed my eyes. Only a block away traffic roared and all around me people were busy with Sunday yard work.
Oscar is 18 months old today. We’ve had him since he was 8 weeks old and he’s completely changed our lives. Dogs have a habit of doing that. I have learned so much from him in just that short time, some of which I’ve written about in previous blogs. I feel like I’m always learning so here are some of my most recent insights.
Oscar is our puppy. He’s a yellow Labrador Retriever and is almost 8 months old. He arrived in our lives last October, as a cute, 8-week old bundle of love and play. He’s completely changed our lives for the better.
It was time to say goodbye to our beautiful, gentle Labrador. The decision to euthanase her, thus ending her life, was one we had wrangled with over two months. During this time we had decided yes, as we watched her struggling up and down the stairs in our home, limping toward us, her large shoulder joints riddled with arthritis. The once strong shoulders she had used to pull herself up as the strength had ebbed from her hips and thighs. But, after limping toward you, she would slowly sit sideways and give you the most gorgeous wide grin, full of love.
I rescued a dog I named Grace and her nine newborn puppies from a high kill animal shelter on the day they were to be put to sleep. This turned out to be an amazing experience for me. I saw Grace’s face on Facebook with numerous pleas for someone to volunteer to foster her and her pups. I took one look at her face and fell in love. I knew I was meant to help her and her little ones
Remember dear ones that your journey upon the earth is temporary, and so take the time to ponder what you want, to focus upon it and to pray for it. Take the time to allow yourself to dig deep within and see where you are acting in alignment with what you want, and where you are not. Do you speak of your life with gratitude or with complaints? Do you see every situation as an opportunity and a blessing, or as an act of adversity? Do you choose to see the abundance in life, or the lack.
I Kuthumi greet you once more. I come in request to answer the question "Do animals have multiple lives as humans do?" This is an interesting question and will be of interest to many. First I must tell you that all animals contain a consciousness. Some species contain a more developed consciousness than others. Yet all behavior patterns stem from DNA and consciousness. Man has often thought of the elemental, plant, mineral and animal kingdoms as lower than himself. Yet all are part of creation and all contain consciousness.
Greetings to you. I, Kuthumi greet you once more. I have been asked, do animals ascend? An interesting subject. Some people regard certain animals as sacred, above themselves. Others regard animals as a financial tool. The animals are tortured, abused, some go insane with the cruelty they endure. Others regard certain animals as a nuisance, something to be shot and killed.
On behalf of the Starchild Children's Foundation, and as part of our Community work, we donated 300kgs of Animal Food to the local Animal Welfare. It was something that we had planned a while ago, but it seemed like one of those happy synchronicities that it happened now, at the beginning of this month of October.
In nature, all things are in harmony.
Animals living in nature coexist harmoniously with other animals
and the energies of their natural environment. They eat when they are
hungry, rest when they are tired, and look for companionship when their
innate instinct guides them to do so.
Nama sika, venia benya - I AM the one, I AM the whole - I greet you my beloved family!
Feel my love as I reach out to each one of you. I come through, I
embrace you, I sit beside you for this moment. I rejoice that you are
here with us. I rejoice that you choose to come and spend this time
together. There is so much happening within the world in which you
live at this time.
The beast, whether it is your dog or cat or squirrel, or no matter what beast you are affectionately addressing, is, for the most part, less specifically focused than you are. He is less of a deliberate creator. He deciphers contrast less specifically than you do. Therefore, he creates less deliberately than you do. The advantage to him, in that, is that he does not push against as much.
