Celebrating Animals

I came across a quote by J. Krishnamurti the other day that describes one of the reasons I am so grateful for the animals in my life.  “To understand truth, one  must have a very sharp, precise, clear mind; not a cunning mind, but a mind that is capable of looking without any distortion, a mind innocent and vulnerable.”

In my experience with animals, I find them approaching the world with a “mind innocent and vulnerable”….taking each day, each experience simply as it comes.  On those days when my own mind is smothering me with chatter, chaos, to-do lists, expectations, worry…..etc. I find solace in being around animals and drinking in their innocence and vulnerability. 

How do the animals in your life help you?
