Cecil the Lion

lion-portrait

You’ve probably heard the news of protests circling the planet over the recent death of the legendary, beloved Cecil the Lion in Zimbabwe.

Many people, animal lovers or not, are distressed, sad, and angry. Maybe you’re one of them.

As you might expect in such situations, people’s reactions vary widely.

The American who killed Cecil, in a big-game trophy hunt, is a dentist from Minnesota. Police there reported “terroristic threats” against him. Some celebrities have called him “a poor excuse of a human being.”

The hunters allegedly lured Cecil out of his safe haven in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. Then he was shot and wounded, chased for miles, and finally shot and killed, after what must have been pretty horrible suffering.

I can’t help but wonder if some of the protesters, especially the ones threatening violence and murder, condone the inhumane treatment our society often inflicts on farm animals, in so-called “factory farms.” Is not all life sacred?

I personally love all animals, wild and domestic. That’s why I’m a vegetarian. I know not everyone agrees with me. That’s fine. I neither judge nor criticize those following a different path. None of us have the right to do that.

Here are some words Spirit gave us on animals a while back.

Spirit

  • Animals have spirits (or souls) which are just as real and as deserving of love and respect as humans.
  • Animals have the same intense feelings and emotions as humans.
  • Domestic pets are as much a part of your families as are the humans.
  • If you choose to eat meat be sure the animals are raised humanely. Give thanks to the animals’ spirits before you begin eating.
  • Respect and honor the choices other humans make, whether you’re vegetarian or not.
  • Animals can teach you much about love and healing. They are far wiser than most humans know or acknowledge.
  • Your animals are always with you. Your relationships with them continue beyond the veil of death.

Here’s a well-done, sometimes graphic, short video on animal rights. If you’re particularly sensitive, watch it with caution. It features well-known figures such as American comedian Ellen Degeneres, Australian philanthropist Philip Wollen, and Ingrid Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

In the early 1980s John took a spiritual development course, and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.

Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
