🐾 Maybe the reason I love animals so much, is because the only time they have broken my heart is when theirs has stopped beating.
ABOUT this Nature Journal
Ever consider what pets must think of us? I mean, here we come back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul - chicken, pork, half a cow. They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!
~Anne Tyler, The Accidental Tourist
These pages are meant to celebrate the well-being of our planet and the joy and beauty of life - Look for the evidence of Well-being, and be an ADVOCATE FOR WELL-BEING, rather than an advocate for getting rid of what does not feel like Well-being, then, little by little by little, your own personal experience begins to take shape in a way that is more satisfying to you.
The one factor that has been unknown by most humans, that is understood by the beasts, is that Well-being truly does abound, and that we are blessed beings who live in an atmosphere of grace, and that unless you are doing something to pinch off the Well-being, it will be yours!
Our animals know that all is well. Our animals live in the moment. They understand the power of their now. They expect the Universe to yield to them. They don't worry or fret or conjure or make laws or rules or try to regulate. They are Pure Positive Energy. Our beasts vibrate more on the Energy scale of contentment than of passion. Their desire was set forth from the Non-physical, and continues to be set forth by those, like us, who want Energy balance, who want sustenance.
The difference between the beast and the human is that the beast is more general in its intent. The human is usually less blended, usually less allowing of the Energy to flow, but is more specific. And that is why the human is seen to be the Creator while the beast is more the balancer of Energy.
Animals also have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.
The universe is one great kindergarten for man. Everything that exists has brought with it its own peculiar lesson - The mountain teaches stability and grandeur; the ocean immensity and change. Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impression upon the soul of man.
