Like a Thief in the Night

(exerpt from this month's Animal Balance)

I filled the pond after the Racoons drained out most of the water by knocking the hose out of my stream. It feels like a direct result of my energy work there on the new moon.

Racoon, I call upon you in light and love. I invite your aid and positive energy for the highest good of all. Energy of love, energy of change, bless me with the Wisdom to see past the masks people put on and to see through the ignorance of ages: the false belief in the inherent, independent existence of people and things.

Dharmakaya, Maha Prakriti, Divine Mother, reveal Thyself in my Self and show me through the miracle of Love that I am free to choose any mask, any shape or form and yet remain aware of the formless absolute.

Above all help me with Abundant Love and Wisdom to shape my life in alignment with higher Will to bring the formless into form with beauty, compassion and loving-kindness.

Break me again and again until I see that I am unbreakable, unchangeable Spirit. Smelt my gold from dark ore in the fires of trial and difficulties until I laugh in full radiant awareness of Thy Grace which flows with effortless ease.

Squirrel Speaks of Releasing the Wound

A squirrel came to the back yard with a fatal wound—barely jumping from the roof to a branch of the Cherry Tree, clinging there then moving a little further down the branch—in shock from an accident I suppose.

My friend, Squirrel, you came to say goodbye. I saw your last leap and though you barely held on you did not fall, but managed eventually to climb down the trunk to the ground before your death transition back to Mother Earth, the release from pain and suffering. So I honored this as your last wish, your instinct to be buried under that tree. Your body is now nourishment for her roots washed in heavy rain. Tree of Life, the sacred spiral takes you in.

Squirrel, will you speak?

Yes, I am Squirrel, singing a song for you and all of Earth’s Children from deep in the Core Heart of Mother/Father. My wordless song is a story and a reminder of both the beauty of life and impermanence. Thank you for honoring my body by offering it back to our Mother. Inside, deep inside your inner knowing you feel that what you did for me you did for yourself and for All Life. This is the foundation of Oneness, the unity consciousness which leads to Peace and Harmony.

As I walk my path on the good Blue Road of Spirit I offer you this message of hope for the world and for All that Is. My difficult passage from the roof top to the tree across the branch with guts hanging out is a symbol of woundedness and grief that is felt by humankind and held in the gut. It can be a gnawing empty feeling or a screaming rage. Who feels it knows it.

I am Squirrel, the gatherer who has helped you collect the seeds of the Heart’s Natural Love. That is the perpetual power that carried me across the branch, back to the Tree and down again to Earth. Having given my All I return to the Earth as you will also. Now I am with You in the Core Heart. Give back all your grief and pain and re-connect to the Tree of Life.

Feel the roots of life restore and rebirth You in the Core Heart and You will walk in Balance and Freedom again. With all my Love from the Animals, Plants and Stones, Thanks for listening with an open heart and Respect for All Life.
