The Animals Speak About the Oil Spill…


What the Animals Say About the Oil Spill

June 28, 2010

Peacock

We are anxious that humans can still not see how they misuse their power. They can still stop the destruction but only if they pay attention to the needs of the natural world. The natural world does not need humans fighting about whether they should still drill in the waters.
Humans need to learn their lesson and use their minds to do “damage control”. The human mind has become addicted to images that reinforce disaster. It is like the addiction to alcohol, sugar or drugs, you know you should not watch disasters over and over yet you cannot bring yourself to turn off the TV.
It is not too late but it is late.

Polar Bear

We are furious that Al Gore has taken such a beating for revealing human weakness for comfort over community. You are part of our community yet you do not consider that we are part of yours. If you treated the next-door neighbor as you have treated us, you would be thrown out of the community or exiled socially. Yet because you consider us expendable, you treat us as an asset that is yours to use.
It is not too late but it is late.

Turtle

The joy we wish to bring to the world is rapidly diminishing. Joy can only flourish where there is a desire for it. Humans have given up on their intention to be happy because they have lost faith that they can be happy. Now you only wish for survival, which means you are no longer aligned with joy.
It is not too late but it is late

Dog

We see such turmoil yet it is so simple. Being a good neighbor means taking care of your neighbor if the neighbor needs help. Being a good neighbor means watching out for your neighbor Being a good neighbor means taking into consideration the needs and rights of your neighbor when you determine to make a change.
You are not good neighbors on Planet Earth. You take and get angry if you cannot receive easily.
We dogs are now angry because we see that our unconditional love has not served our neighbors, the other animals, well. You got used to unconditional love from us and expect it from other animals, even as you destroy them. This was not our intention, to spoil you till you expect unconditional love with no thought of returning it
It is not too late but it is late.

Giraffe

“Do unto others as you would have them do to you” does not seem to apply to humans. We are the “others” yet you treat us as expendable and without soul.
Our souls are clear, as are our intentions. We seek to help out in your evolution but we also get tired, we know when a battle is lost and we know how to retreat.
It is not too late but it is late

Sharks

Only a human would defecate in the place where they live. Animals know better. Animal instincts for survival include the instinct for survival of the species. Human selfishness has wiped out their instinct for the survival of their species.
It is not too late but it is late.

Iguanas

We hope to be the last to leave Planet Earth, as we were the first to inhabit it. We are the Nagas who “own” this earth yet we were not selfish. We allowed you to live where you desired, without regard for your own well being, much less ours.
Yet allowing you free will was a mistake, as even we have been displaced and need to “run” away from your destruction.
It is not too late but it is late
