And she has taught me animals are as close to Spirit we can get in our busy lives. Pets center us, keep us connected to the moment and remind us every minute that there's really nothing so important that we can't take time for them.
I have come to learn that life itself is the single biggest distraction that steals us away from Spirit. We are spiritual beings having a physical experience, I believe, which creates the perfect environment for life to distract us from what I believe we've come here to remember: Spirit.
So, when you're uptight, angry, sad, worried, lonely, hurting or just plain sick and tired of being sick and tired, try connecting with an animal. Watch their eyes, feel their tender little spirits as they respond to you honestly and without question. Through their innocence and dedication to Spirit, let them help you reconnect too. I believe they are here, all around us, to remind us just how simply close Spirit truly is.
