What Animals Know…And We Have to Learn

We were made from the same energy as animals. We came from the same place – the formless made into form. But animals have a different take on life than humans.  Why is that?

The answer lies in their sight.

Not their eyesight, but what they see. Not physically, but spiritually. Yes, I believe that animals have a direct connection to God, the Divine, the Source. Whether you call that a spiritual connection is a quibble over semantics. My feeble brain could not come up with another word, so please feel free to substitute your own for “spiritual.”

For the sake of this discussion, let’s focus on dogs and what they see.

When you share your home with a dog, you know love. It lies in their eyes, shining bright and true. When those eyes are focused on you, you see it – Divine Love. It is pure, unadulterated and clean. Nothing filters it or transforms it into something it was not.  It just is.

People have the same capacity to love – without judgment or criticism. Then why don’t we?

I discovered the answer in a post online. Instead of trying to explain it  myself, I thought I would share it with you.

We can learn many lessons in love from animals. What have you learned?

  1. Loved this beautiful story. I, too, have been blessed with a wise, 4-legged “Anam Cara” named George. Nature ,..creation… speaks so clearly – if only we’d pay attention. Thanks for sharing this.


  2. Cynthia – I can’t tell you how often I have been touched by either a dog or a cat. They can sense my moods and they always offer what I need in that moment. A smile, a hug (or rub) or just sitting quietly next to me. Animals know…what we have to learn.
