Trans-species Connections: Dog Saves Baby

I am so grateful to so many readers of my blog that send me further documentation of trans-species connections.  Apparently this video and news report have gone global and one wonderful reader shared it with me, as I do not watch TV.  It not only is further documentation of trans-species connections, but also of trans-species maternal behavior as I have discussed on each Mother’s Day for the past two years.  In addition, on you-tube next to this video are more video’s documenting trans-species maternal behavior.  I feel that the further collection of video’s documenting such behavior may eventually allow skeptics or scientists who demand double blind placebo controlled trials for evidence of behaviors and consciousness in other species, to acknowledge that consciousness and more evolved behaviors do indeed exist. I believe that the more evidence that we collect, the more  people will acknowledge this  trans-species field exists and just by becoming more aware of it, we can actually re-create a garden of eden on this planet, where compassion for all beings is the basis for compassionate society.

Trans-species Friendship

A friend of mine collected a series of animal friendship video’s and sent them to me recently to share with all my kindred spirits!  So delightful to see so many friendships that transcend species, limited belief systems,  biases, labels etc.  Our programmed beliefs and patterns can limit our perceptions of reality so much that we  can miss the  interconnected oneness of all beings.  These heart warming, joyous video’s assist in awakening our inner joy, our awareness of our oneness and what fun life can actually be!

My invitation to all of you today is perhaps try to see each being that you interact with today, beyond labels, and just someone to connect with with joy, offering them simple thoughts of loving kindness recognizing that we truly are all one.

Trans-species Mourning and Grief

Elephant Mourning

Elephant Mourning

It seems as though as we connect with different animal species at a more intimate level we are able to communicate with them with such depth that the illusion of separation slowly dissipates.  This article concerning mourning and grief of elephants with a human called “the elephant whisperer” is one stunning example of the depth of such deep communication.

The life of Lawrence Anthony is a testimony to a depth of  trans-species communication, respect and love that goes beyond our minds limited perceptions of what is possible.

The blog post on delightmaker  asks the right questions as stated here “So, how after Anthony’s death, did the reserve’s elephants — grazing miles away in distant parts of the park — know?  “A good man died suddenly,” says Rabbi Leila Gal Berner, Ph.D., “and from miles and miles away, two herds of elephants, sensing that they had lost a beloved human friend, moved in a solemn, almost ‘funereal’ procession to make a call on the bereaved family at the deceased man’s home.”  The blog, delightmaker also states ““If there ever were a time, when we can truly sense the wondrous ‘interconnectedness of all beings,’ it is when we reflect on the elephants of Thula Thula. A man’s heart’s stops, and hundreds of elephants’ hearts are grieving. This man’s oh-so-abundantly loving heart offered healing to these elephants, and now, they came to pay loving homage to their friend.””

From my limited, exploratory perspective, this is one further documentation of my “Trans-species Field Theory (c) and my thoughts on the potential of a “love particle” (c) that may be formed from the instant when the energy of love turns into a potential form of matter of love through the thoughts and emotions of that connection.  The research and concepts at Heartmath  may also be appreciated as truly being “trans-species” as is seen in this example of elephants recognizing the death of a beloved human and traveling so far to connect at that moment.  The levels of interspecies communication and their potential implicatons  are only being glimpsed from our limited three dimensional perspective.  We need to witness and experience these connections to become aware of their existence.  The potential of  where that can lead all living beings is unlimited.  If we create a space of inner silence, quiet within our hearts  and allow a spacious emptiness of love and compassion to arise out of that to connect with all beings, perhaps there can be a global shift back to a living garden of eden here and now.

Happy Mother’s Day: Cooperation in Protecting Children Between Whale Species

Do animals have concepts of other? other species?  I pondered this question after reading this story of cooperation between humpback and gray whales in defending a baby whale from Orca whales who attacked it.  This article offers excellent documentation of this cooperation.  It also proposes which parts of a mammalian nervous system are designed for this level of cooperation.  It is wonderful to see continued documentation of behaviors in other species that we oddly consider limited to humans  due to our species centric egoic perspective of life.  Perhaps if we begin with a perspective that we are essentially the same, rather than essentially different, we might behave differently to other species and not destroy them and all our shared habitat.  Again perhaps we should  begin with asking the right questions or begin with a unified field theory, that we are truly all one.

On Mother’s Day, it is sad to see one species killing the baby of another for food.  Yet, it is also beautiful to see other species trying to help the mother protect her young.  On Mother’s Day, perhaps we can view each other as being mother to all beings, to our environment and to all of nature and perhaps we can create a world where we care for and love all of nature as our child.  May all beings assist in protecting our precious children from harm whether from other beings, or from harmful ecocidal practices, from control issues that are not in the best interest of all beings and from the lack of truth.  Happy Mother’s Day to Mother Earth as well!

 

 

 

Canine Loyalty

This heart wrenching video  of Canine Loyalty of one dog standing by his dead companion who was hit by a car is another illustration of emotions and caring in dogs that goes so beyond what one had previously thought possible in their hearts and minds.  One can only wonder what this dog, grace, is thinking and feeling at this moment.

As I continue being a bit “time-challenged” seeing my beloved patients, I just wish to share this with you and continue building our video study documenting the heart and mind of our kindred spirits.

What are your thoughts and feelings when you watch this video on Canine Loyalty?

Kindred Assistance

Dolphin Connection

Dolphin Connection

I am grateful to readers of the kindred spirits project who are kind enough to share video’s and photo’s that continue to document how it is truly in our hearts to help one another.  Someone just sent me this heartwarming video of average beings confronted with a challenging situation and just instantly choosing to help  save these stranded dolphins.  Watch this video of people relaxing on a beach and then jumping into  Saving Dolphins.  Personally, each time these situations are documented of how we naturally want to help one another, it builds a solid foundation for demonstrating the highest good in all of us.

Thank you all for sharing these. The kindred spirits project is truly becoming a storehouse of documentation for who we truly are and who we can be!

 

Animal Morality: Compassion, Reconciliation & Empathy

Compassion

Compassion

A friend shared this educational video from TED talks on Animal Morality.  The TED talk summary states “Empathy, cooperation, fairness and reciprocity — caring about the well-being of others seems like a very human trait. But Frans de Waal shares some surprising videos of behavioral tests, on primates and other mammals, that show how many of these moral traits all of us share. In the midst of being “time-challenged” with seeing patients, I wanted to just quickly share this heart touching, hopeful, promising video of how humans can choose to act rather than some of the more violent, greedy behavior that seems to be in the news so frequently.

I am about to participate in a two day conference at Western Connecticut State University with Buddhist scholars, faculty and students on April 20 and 21, titled  ”Creativity and Compassion”.  It is part of a preparation for a visit from His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.  Based on the integration of my personal journey and my professional journey, I will be part of a panel discussion titled “The Art of Compassion: bringing creativity and compassion to the ordinary tribulations of daily life.  It is heartening to see how compassion, empathy, creativity, are being recognized as essential behaviors as we choose to evolve to a more conscious world, all working together for the benefit of the common good.

Enjoy this educational video and recognize we all are able to make choices regarding our behaviors.  Let us choose ones that are moral and for the benefit of all beings!

 

Happy Valentine’s Day to All Kindred Spirits!

Warm Wishes for a Joyous Valentine's Day to All Beings!

Warm Wishes for a Joyous Valentine's Day to All Beings!

This video shares the images of the wish of Happy Valentines Day to All Kindred Spirits

Wishing all Kindred Spirits a Happy Valentine’s Day!  May all beings feel the deepest, profound love that permeates all of life, all dimensions!  This love is within each and every one of us.  It is not getting love from food, treats, distractions, etc.  It is giving and receiving love from the deepest truth of who we really are.  This love radiates from our hearts in every moment.  Love is the bridge between all of us, between the form and the formless, between all hearts.  Love is a key to the trans-species field theory and global coherence.  It is our old programmings, thoughts, belief systems etc. that prevent us from realizing this.  From this deep love, I wish you all the love that the kindred spirits project wishes to radiate out to all our wonderful followers!

Blessings to you all!

 

Kindred Spirits Helping Each Other

A friend sent me this photo essay going around the internet.  I found it incredibly touching.  Personally, it felt like it was a demonstration of intelligence, trust, and nonverbal communication between species that was perhaps the way it used to be, prior to so much division and fear having developed between  humans and other animals. It was heartening to see how the fisherman and his family assisted them.  It is a promising illustration of how perhaps we can all help each other in the midst of the global environmental challenges we are confronting in 2012.

Perhaps we can all use this as a healthy, joyous reminder of how we can help all beings in need beyond all labels of species, predator, prey, us vs. them, self vs. other.  We can all support each other in creating a more peaceful world in 2012!

A DEER STORY FROM ALASKA
A Heart Warming  and Amazing Rescue , in Sitka  Alaska
Amazing story…a  miracle of sorts, really!
The Best Day Of Fishing Ever!

I’ve heard of salmon jumping into boats, but never anything quite like this…
Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly toward his boat. 

 

Deer Swimming for Help

“Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us.  We could tell right away that the young bucks were distressed.

I opened up my back gate and we helped the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat.  In all my years fishing, I’ve never seen anything quite like it!

Once onboard, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering.”

Deer Resting on Board

Deer Resting On Board

“This is a picture I took of the rescued bucks on the back of
my boat, the Alaska Quest.  We headed for Taku Harbour.

Once we reached the dock, the first buck that we had pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say ‘thank you’ and disappeared into the forest.

After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more help.

Deer Rescued

This is me carrying the little guy.

 

Deer Rescued

My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck to its feet.
We didn’t know how long they had been in the icy waters or
if there had been others who did not survive.  My daughter later told me that the experience was something that she would never forget,

and I suspect the deer felt the same way as well!”

Thank you for sharing these photographs and story with all of us!

Horse Bulldog Connection Transcends Us vs. Them

Horse and Bulldog

In the midst of all the challenges facing the world these days, animals continue to be excellent models for us on how we can transcend the “us vs. them” mentality.  In this smile stimulating video on huffpost,  the police horse and the bulldog are connecting at a deeper level.  Perhaps if humans consciously chose to be less adversarial and realize we are all in this together, then we  could choose to see what we share in common and how through this commonality, we can come to terms of agreement based on what is best for all beings.  I know this sounds quite simplistic, but sometimes, if do not ask the correct basic questions, we will never come up with the best answers.  Can we choose to be like this horse and dog and from that common ground, work on developing a society that really focuses on what is best for all beings involved?
