The other day a dear friend shared a movie called the ANIMAL COMMUNICATOR. This video came from that movie.
I love animals and feel a deep connection with them. The cats that have blessed my life by living with me and my family have taught me a lot about the subtleties of communication and love. I’m sure many of you have experienced ‘inter-species’ love. I was moved to feel the consciousness Anna Breytenbach is embodying and sharing with the animals. Her ‘super’ natural connection is an invitation to all of us. It mirrors so deeply certain aspects of the work we are doing in the Evolutionary Collective. We practice sharing that consciousness in our human connectivity but the consciousness extends to all of existence.
Her work is an invitation to directly extend the space of relatedness to animals and all living things. By doing that we can’t help but experience our true inter-relatedness with nature and all of life. We can speak about that connection, from our ideas, but when you feel, without question the distinct and true relationship with one animal, one bird, one specific living thing – and you then realize that all of life is alive in that way. I find when the specific, personal dimension comes alive it breaks through a numbness and unconsciousness that is present in most of us. When we let ourselves care about one lion, one pigeon, one cat, dog, squirrel, dolphin, seal or rabbit and we feel it’s unique needs, we remember that our presence and connection matter. It reminds us that we are custodians of life for this world and each other. Every moment of real recognition, every time we truly see each other and touch each other, the world is changed and we are left standing in the real. If we could feel each other and all of life with that level of awareness and attention – we could not move through the world and do what we do.
With love and appreciation, Patricia
