I was so happy to see todays meditation!
Madam…my boyfriends cat got a shower today!
She does look sour doesn’t she! She’s fine – loves to sit out in the sun when she’s done.
My boyfriends great with animals.
He has two tortoises called Fred and Barney who come when he calls. Imagine that.
My sister also loves animals but in her case there is psychology involved. I’m not sure it’s good for her dogs but they end up looking a little confused about being dogs and not human.
Still, her love for them is nice to watch.
In the village there are cows everywhere…most terrifying creatures.
When I was little I would be eye to eye with cows as they bent their heads to eat. WHRUMPFF – acres of perfectly healthy turf. Gone.
WHRUMPFF – like a hover.
Just like that.
I have seen love in the eyes of villagers for their cows. True love. Honestly.
Milk and Friendship.
Also for chickens.
I was vegetarian for a while back in the day.
I still don’t feel good eating meat. Well, when I think about it.
Actually, I don’t even feel good eating vegetables if they have roots! You know – that’s the part that produces life – etc
A bit strong now, I concede. Food is food.
I wonder if we take care of our animals the way we should?
In Kenya, we’re proud of trying to live with our wildlife. We don’t cage them, we don’t have zoos, it’s an entirely different situation than in South Africa.
Of course we have the land to let them roam (directed) but this will change.
Lions are truly majestic, Giraffe are the oddest things in reality, Buffalo will have a conversation with you, they’re so intelligent, and Elephants, why elephants seem to live more like we do, than chimps.
I have madam on my lap, listeng to her purr, enjoying her warmth against my skin and I’m overcome with just how BEAUTIFUL creatures are.
ALL OF THEM.
Perhaps I ought to consider humans, creatures.
I wonder if there are any examples in the bible, of Jesus with Animals?
