Prayer Circle for Animals Weekly Update from Judy Carman
April 13, 2015

Our prayers for all animals continue to circle the earth, to uplift humanity's consciousness, and to bless the animals themselves. Thank you for joining people around the world who are praying this prayer in many different languages but all with the same love:


Greetings of love and gratitude from Judy Carman

We know that animals need help, but sometimes we need emotional support to keep helping them.  With that in mind, In Defense of Animals (IDA) has launched their Sustainable Activism Helpline. A short youtube https://youtu.be/7AjJ6DurXxU announces this affirming and empowering new resource and explains how we can reach the free confidential counseling service either by email (helpline@idausa.org) or by phone (800-705-0425).  As we all know, the work of being an activist can be very stressful. Bearing witness to unimaginable atrocities and often experiencing rejection or harsh criticism from family, friends, and others can cause burnout and a feeling of futility.  Our vision of a world free of violence toward all beings can seem so far away at times, and many people tell us it is unreachable. On top of that we know it is important that we demonstrate to the world that the vegan life is a joyful life, but sometimes that joy escapes us.

This week’s prayer is for animal activists who are struggling. This week we give thanks for In Defense of Animals and for their wisdom in developing the Sustainable Activist Helpline.  From our spirits we send out deep gratitude to all people who have answered the call to be a voice for the animals, and that includes each one of us.  Joy and grief go hand in hand in this work.  We face ongoing violence daily and yet our awakening to our oneness with all life brings more joy than ever before.  In our prayers and focused thoughts this week, we reach out to all animal activists and ourselves with compassion and care.  We see each one of us who may right now need emotional or spiritual support receiving that support.  We see each one finding the counselor he or she needs at the IDA Helpline or with a trusted friend or professional.  We see every activist taking time to learn the signs of burnout and stress and to rest and recharge when necessary.  The animals need us.  They cannot afford to lose even one of us. Together we join ourselves with Divine Intelligence and Love. Although the road is long, there are many lovely spots to camp and rest along the way, and the animals are with us every step of the way.
As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you, dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all beings will live in peace together.

May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings everywhere. 
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from Will, Madeleine, Tara and the Circle of Compassion team
