Over the millennia, many species of animals and humans have interacted in trusting relationships. Animals add so much to our lives. They are pets, farmhands, and guides. Dogs love and guard us. Cats comfort and keep mice at bay. Birds sing and amuse us. Wool from sheep warm and adorn us. Animals continue to be essential transportation around the world.
I am grateful for the many ways animals add richness to my life. From the fish of the sea to the butterfly, I appreciate the unique strengths of each and every species. Whether it’s the pet from my childhood or an exotic animal, I see our underlying unity. When I see them I send them loving energy knowing that the Divine is our common core.

I am Zeal! Joy radiates out from me.
The spiritual Power of Zeal is like the potential of an unlit candle. When I light a candle it burns brightly; when I fire up my Zeal, my joy burns brightly in my heart and soul. Just as each sunrise illuminates the earth with warm hues, my joy lights up my life from the inside out.
Often, I spontaneously feel joy after meditation. Sights and sounds spark my awareness of joy. Hearing the beat of a favorite song, seeing the beauty of fall foliage, feeling the touch of a loved one’s embrace – I use all these things to fire up my Zeal!
Whenever I feel darkness in my life, I meditate on my Zeal center at the back of my head seeing the color orange burning brightly there. I reflect on the joys of my life. It begins to warm my heart and my entire body. I cannot help but smile as my joy radiates within me. I am Zeal! Joy radiates out from me.
