As a student of spiritual awakening, I am always looking for ways to better understand my relationships with not only animals, but people. I recently had a falling-out with someone I’ve known for a few years. After spending many days trying to make sense of the misunderstandings, wondering what I could have done differently, I finally realized I am responsible for one thing: my intention. In this case my intentions were pure…..filled with goodness and hope.
I watch animals in their relationships…..studying how they create harmonious partnerships with other animals and loyal devotion to their humans. They display their intentions with such honesty and clarity. They read intentions first, placing far more importance on what they sense is the energy behind the action. There is much to learn from such a simple, yet powerful way to interpret the world around us.
