Animals are Our Teachers
Whenever you experience your animals, and you’re left with that sense of compassion...you’re experiencing their natural connection beyond time. This compassionate connection serves all life, a connection of unison that makes your animals so special, and such great teachers. You experience this as their master, but stop and entertain a moment when you’re the creature; they’re the "master." You’ve seen a large flock of birds a school of fish...all moving in unison without the slightest visible sign of what causes the instant shift in direction.
This is that connection beyond time; it works amongst a species, and across species. It connects you and your animals; you and your loved ones; you and your co-workers. Animals have this naturally wired into their ‘non-choices’...you can activate this in your relations. It turns on a higher level of communication that’s effortless, compassionate and simultaneous. Such is the nature of a ‘cultural’ vision and/or mission...just like the flock of birds it creates unison and harmony. Think of your relations between family or co-workers as the quantum possibilities of an undisturbed particle – like dice flying through the air -- a blur of spinning opportunities, not yet noticed; not yet observed, assigned, or chosen. Within this state of possibilities (the dice still in the air), there’s a moment of choice...the dice hit the table as one of the possibilities. For you, this landing is your choices; your entire system is wired for choices...you make them several times each moment...they range from a complete mess, to total success. Because your animals do not have these choices, their vision and mission are their connections...moving in unison...living in peace...being productive...achieving success...all the ‘relational missions’ of nature.
Our prayer is that you set your relations to capture the highest possibilities of connection within each moment; follow the lead of your animals and emulate their ‘non-choice’ behavior with your choice of a 'vision and mission' that cause the ‘random’ nature of nature to become the opportunities for your greatest success.
