I think I could turn and live with animals,
they're so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied,

not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another,

nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

animals are amazing, they know when we are looking at them.

and don't care, they just going on with life as if we are not there. they don't ever stop living and just being.

they are our greatest teachers, if we only stop making so much noice and listen. when we let go of our egos and become one with them

that is when we will truly experience our true power and what it feels like to be in it.

awakened-journey.com is an online global community creating personal freedom and conscious wellbeing for ourselves and our world



 May we be at peace
May our hearts stay open
May we remember the light of our own true nature
May we and all beings be completely healed
