“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened” Anatole France
Is there a difference between the way we love another human being and the way we love an animal being? Perhaps in loving our animals, we might trust deeper or open ourselves wider without fear of being hurt or betrayed. Loving a human is sometimes more complicated….or so it would seem.
I think animals are in our lives for many reasons, but one of them is to teach us to love with all our hearts, with no fear and with complete faith that in so doing we awaken our souls.
