Alpha Bits

from the April 2006 Star Beacon


by Tumeria

          Our spiritual teachers come in all shapes and sizes. They are not all Ascended Masters. Many have never been to college and some, in fact, are not even human! Consider for a moment that a teacher may be wearing a fur coat or adorned in feathers or even scales! Some walk on all fours, while others soar in the sky or swim in the seas. Our society looks at animals in many different ways. We see animals as servants, companions, and even as food sources or trophies to be displayed on a wall. Rarely are animals seen for the great teachers that they are.

          Humans consider themselves to be the most intelligent beings on this planet. Most wouldn’t even consider the possibility that an animal could have wisdom to teach them. When we can put our egos aside, we can see the wonderful gifts that our animal friends have to offer. The Native Americans have known this for centuries.

          Anyone who has ever had a pet can tell you of the pure, unconditional love that an animal has for its human companion. That is the first and greatest teachings of the animals — unconditional love. They have no judgments about us. They accept us exactly as we are. They do not care if we are black or white, short or tall, thin or fat, they just love us. Like children, animals are innocent and trusting. They give of themselves completely, and do so with great joy.

          Joy is the second teaching. Anyone who has ever come home from work and has been greeted by their dog can attest to this. They are so happy to see us! Not only is their tail wagging, but their whole body! Closely related to joy is the lesson of playfulness. Dogs are not stuck in the drudgery of day-to-day living. They just want to have fun, fun and more fun! A game of fetch or tug-a-war, or a walk in the park or a ride in the car are all top choices. We should all put this lesson into practice and play more!

          The next lesson that animals can teach us is how to stay in the NOW moment. Animals are fully present in the here and now. They don’t worry about the future or dwell in the past. They are happy and content just to BE.

          Animals can also teach us about balance and harmony with nature. They do not try to conquer their environment and certainly do not destroy or pollute it for their own personal gains. Animals know that they are One with all creation. They live within the natural flow of their world.
Not only are animals teachers, they are also healers. It has been proven scientifically that watching fish will help to lower blood pressure and instill peaceful feelings. Seniors with pets live longer, more productive lives, thanks to the animals’ love and companionship. Even a visit to a nursing home from a therapy pet can brighten an elderly person’s day. While they are in the company of an animal. they are able to smile and laugh and remember their own pet connections.

          Dolphins, horses, dogs and cats have also been instrumental in helping children to heal. Autistic children, who have withdrawn into themselves, greatly improve when they are in the presence of an animal. They naturally respond and open up to the unconditional love that the creature has to offer them. Children with reading challenges read effortlessly when they read to a dog. They know that the animal will not judge or criticize them, thus they feel safe and at ease. Also, let us not forget the animals trained to assist the disabled, allowing them to lead fuller, more productive lives.

          Our animals should always be treated with love and respect. Like us, they also have a divine spark, or soul. It is time that the members of the animal kingdom be honored for the great teachers that they are. Thank you, Duke, Blitz, Meowser and Fluffy.

          Until next time, Namasté
