" If you talk to the animals,
they will talk with you
and you will know each other.
If you do not talk to them,
you will not know them,
and what you don't know,
you will fear.
What one fears, one destroys. "
Chief Dan George
... food for thought for any interaction with intelligence other than our own ...
" ... home is the place within you that knows itself to be in non-separation from
anyone and anything, anywhere ... "
I searched but could not find Thee;
I called Thee aloud, standing on the minaret;
I rang the temple bell with the rising and setting of the Sun...
I looked for Thee on the Earth; I searched for Thee
in the heavens, my beloved, but at last have found Thee
hidden as a pearl in the shell of my heart.
Hazrat Inayat Khan, "Gayan, Vadan, Nirtan"
