Spiritual Preparation, Session 10: Love for All Creatures

In "Love Will Guide Us," a Tapestry of Faith program

Read the story, "The Cat." Close your eyes and imagine yourself to be like Parvati, Ganesha's mother. Imagine that you are so closely connected to other creatures that you experience their pain. What would you want to say to other people? What would you want to say to other animals? Pay attention to your breathing. As you breathe in, imagine that you are breathing in compassion. As you breathe out, focus on hope for new ways of human and animal interactions. Take a moment to dedicate yourself to kindness to all other living beings and then bring your attention back to your surroundings.
