Blessings and peace to all free-living birds, fish, and animals being harmed, terrorized, and killed by toxic poisons spewed into their home lands, waters, and skies by both secret and blatant human activity.
May we humans think always of the harm we are causing our non-human animal relations, and may we recognize and respect their interests to live their lives freely and in autonomy and health on this beautiful Earth.
Current -- The pig slaughter in Chile -
Please join us in offering healing prayers for the 500,000 pigs in Chile who are suffering in an abandoned slaughterhouse, and destined to be killed by authorities, as they die of stress, dehydration, and starvation. The greatest ongoing prayer we can make is of course to practice kindness in our lives by going vegan as best we can. Thank you for caring for all beings!
Please join us in repeating this healing prayer by Dr. Masaru Emoto, who many of you will recognize as the scientist from Japan who has done research and publications about the characteristics of water. Among other things, his research reveals that water physically responds to emotions.
Feel free to copy and send it around the planet. Let's take charge ... and do our own inner and outer clean up.
Modern science and ancient wisdom agree: Thoughts have the power to hurt and to heal.
Let us join our hearts
and minds together at least
once each day (preferably at noon)
to hold this precious vision and repeat the powerful healing words of the Worldwide Prayer Circle for Animals:
Barely a wink of sleep
I've jumped the fence
Flown the coop
Escaped the trap
Ducked the bullet
Broken out of the lab
And cut the rope from my neck
All beings are free.
~ Tara Gardner 2013

Help Us Generate a Universal Energy Field of Compassion:
It takes less than a minute each day
By Judy Carman and Will Tuttle
“Compassion encircles the earth for all beings everywhere.” This is a phrase, a vision, a “prayer circle for animals” being repeated around the world every day by a growing number of people. As more of us join this unique project, more power will be generated by it.
Those of us who saw the film What the Bleep Do We Know? learned, or probably already knew, that our thoughts create energy fields that can affect matter in powerful ways. One of the experiments described in the film was Masaru Emoto’s work with water. He found a way to photograph crystals of frozen water after people had either blessed the water or sent critical or violent thoughts to the water. The amazing result was that the water crystals that were blessed showed beautiful, harmonious structures, while the water crystals that had received negative thoughts or labels were chaotic in form. Our bodies, the bodies of our animal kin, and the Earth herself are composed primarily of water, making Emoto’s work highly relevant to our work of bringing harmony and peace to all beings.
This gives us tremendous hope as we work to create a world of peace and non-violence for everyone, because it assures us that we are creating on more than just the material level of existence. We are also creating—with every thought—on the spiritual, metaphysical level. What we focus our thoughts on expands. Therefore, it is essential that we take time to imagine compassion encircling the earth and that we have faith that we have the power to make it so. As activists and as awakening beings, we bear witness to atrocities toward people, animals, and the earth on a daily basis. This makes it all the more important that we hold in our hearts this powerful vision and keep our minds focused on it like a marathon runner who keeps her eyes on her path.
Because we are confronted so continually by the violence in the world, it is supremely important to refrain from feeding it with personal thoughts and feelings of rage. Anger actually has the effect of giving violence more energy, and reinforces the mentality of exclusion that underlies all violence. It is possible with patience and practice to bear witness to the violence and make a plan of action while at the same time holding our hearts in a place of peace and loving gratitude for the beauty of life. If we harness this power of love together, we will see miracles.
This makes more sense when we remember that everything is intimately interconnected. There is nothing and no one to whom we are not connected. Science is demonstrating what spiritual teachers have been saying for centuries, that our thoughts travel far beyond our own brains and bodies, affecting the universe in ways we can barely fathom.
Many of us who have experienced the truth of our interconnection with all beings understand this. Our thoughts, prayers, and visions—when shaped by love, peace, and compassion for all life—have a measurable impact on the world and help to steer our species away from violence and toward ahimsa—the way of kindness and respect for others.
The progress of animal rights that has been made in the last 20 to 30 years is astounding. Advertisements, undercover videos, demonstrations, marches, animal rescues, legal victories, availability of vegan food and products—all of these physical actions have been monumental in their effects. And every day, more events and actions take place, raising consciousness all over the world.
What we are proposing is that we all increase the power of these actions exponentially by uniting our focused thoughts on this single phrase at least once a day: “Compassion encircles the earth for all beings everywhere.” Imagine this phrase—this vision—being brought into the minds and hearts of millions of people each and every day and thus generating an energy field of compassion around the world.
We have created this website where you can learn more about this vision and the Prayer Circle for Animals. There is a map on this website to register your location on the earth. We would like to see the world map covered with these points of light. Once you have registered, please tell others about the website and the prayer—especially spiritual leaders and activist friends in the peace, environmental, and other movements.
Our books (both published by Lantern Books), Peace to All Beings (Carman) and The World Peace Diet (Tuttle) are available through this website. These books are good tools for reaching activists in other movements as well as for those on a spiritual path. The books can help you educate people about how activism and spiritual work are inextricably linked with animal rights issues. For example, world peace and personal inner peace cannot be attained among human beings as long as we are violently dominating, exploiting, and eating our animal kin.
Love and compassion are what move us all to do what we do for the innocents of this earth, and love is the ultimate and only reality. In its presence, with enough of us boldly carrying its energy in our hearts, indifference and violence must dissolve. Together we are creating a new world, a compassionate world, a world of peace for all beings.
