Marie T. Russell's Daily Inspiration

The focus for today is:  I choose to honor and respect all animals.

As humans, we tend to think we are superior or more advanced than animals. We may think we are higher on the evolutionary scale than insects. But, are we? Bees have a whole social and communication system that we might learn from. So do ants. And what about the unconditional love we receive from our pets? They are much more advanced than us on the "love scale".

We may think that animals are here to serve us, but perhaps we are the ones who are here to serve them by providing them love, food, and shelter. By learning to honor and respect animals, big and small, we can also learn how to honor and respect ourselves and other human beings. 

Animals can be our teachers if we will just open our eyes and our heart to them. When we encounter any animals, including insects, we can honor and respect them by asking ourselves: What can I learn from this creature? What can it teach me? We may be surprised and in awe of the answer. 

Today's Daily Inspiration was excerpted from the InnerSelf.com article:

The Blessings of the Entire Nature Kingdom
Written by Marie T. Russell

Today, we choose to honor and respect all animals.

Ascension Cards: Accelerate Your Journey to the Light
by Diana Cooper

cover art for: Ascension Cards: Accelerate Your Journey to the Light by Diana CooperThese beautiful ascension cards are designed to assist those seeking to start on a personal ascension path or to accelerate journeys to the light. Each of the 52 color cards offers a description of a specific ascension energy or Ascended Master, guidance on its use, and an affirmation to assist with assimilation of the wisdom.

These cards may be employed in a variety of ways — such as a daily source of guidance and inspiration, a point of study for a group discussion, a source for determining which areas of an ascension path require the most immediate attention, or as a 52-step study course for ascension. Seekers may choose to work with the cards in order, to select one a week for a year, or to identify one card for intensive study. The accompanying booklet offers broader insight into ascension in general.

Publisher: Findhorn Press, an imprint of Inner Traditions Intl.
