For those of us involved in keeping dolphins out of captivity and stopping the slaughter of dolphins and whales, September 1 brings up a lot of emotions as it is the start of the killing season in Taiji, Japan. I wanted to share what I received from the dolphins last yearﾅ I needed to be reminded myself as the pictures and posts start streaming through my news feed on Facebook once again:
As September 1st rolled along and the brutal killing season of dolphins and whales began once again in Taiji, Japan, I found myself seeking higher answers in how to deal with the sadness, pain, frustration and not so nice feelings towards those involved. I asked what would Spirit say? What is for the highest good of all? How do those of us deeply affected by this tragedy best deal with it all? As soon as I asked, I felt and heard the dolphins come in and this is what they told me.
"Our Dear Ocean Sister. Thank you for coming to us with your questions and concerns. We have seen your pain and anger and embrace you and Love you. And therein lies the answer. There has to be love for ALL concerned. Even as the killing goes on, we feel only Love and Compassion in their hearts for them. They are not bad or evil people. Evil does not exist. There is only Love or a self imposed separation from Love. They are only doing what they know, perhaps uneducated about our species, following traditions.
We ask you, all of you, our dear friends, to do the same as it is only with Love and Compassion that they might see the spark of Love and Compassion in our eyes that will make a difference and change them forever. It is only with Love and Compassion that they can even hear you, your concerns and feelings. It is the ONLY way that things can truly change. Love still is the answer!
Does that mean not to write letters and take action? No, not at all. We need you to speak up for us!! You KNOW, dear Sierra, that we have called you into action on our behalf. But it must be done with Love and not in hateful and threatening and making wrong ways. It must be done with Light and Love. It must be done with love, compassion and concern for ALL involved, in educational and mutually satisfactory ways where everyone wins. It IS possible. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. You KNOW that!
Help us to tell the people. Help us to put the "E" (Evolved) back into human to create the human"e" society that you ARE.
Make Love not war no matter what anyone else is doing. Focus on ALL involved finding Love and Compassion in their hearts. See and feel them seeing the Light and becoming conscious and Evolved Human(e)s. Envision them waking up, all those that contribute to the destruction of the oceans and planet. Sign your petitions, create and participate in your campaigns and write your letters, but only those focused on solutions, education, compassion, Love. This is not about not standing up for what you believe in. This is about standing for what you believe in with Compassion and Love. It is the only thing that will make the difference we all seek.
Spreading hate and making war will not be your solution. Your focus must be LOVE while taking action.
As you Love us, BE like us.
War does not create Love. Hate does not create Love. Only Love creates Love.
We LOVE you."
