You only have to Google “Animal Friends” to see the plethora of inter-species animal friendships from all around the world. I’m not making this up, neither am I boosting or bolstering the fact that ANIMALS GET ON BETTER WITH EACH OTHER THAN HUMAN BEINGS.
Sure, as a “superior” race, human beings have language and technology and are able to communicate with each other easily. The sad thing is, despite this advantage we have over animals, we’re no good at communicating with our fellow human beings. Terrible, in fact. I guess when we give our Ego free rein, no amount of language or technology will ever bring us Peace.
Animals have no concept of Ego. What you see is what you get. Animals don’t fret about getting to work on time, pleasing the boss, buying stuff, performance reviews, promotions, deadlines, paying the bills, buying more stuff, holidays, exams, celebrations, what to eat tomorrow, buying even more stuff etc etc etc. Animals don’t believe in capitalism, consumerism, communism, terrorism or indeed any “ism” at all. They only have one language, and that is Love.
Animals just exist. And they do that very well indeed, until humans come along and make a royal mess of things, like the cruel bullies we are. The Bible teaches that Man is the guardian over all living creatures, and his job is to look after them and take care of their needs. Well, if that is so, God must be smiting His forehead and rolling His eyes right now, because we sure as hell have screwed up big time!
Take a look at today’s 5 animal friends, (curated from Google Images). And ponder just for a minute, marvel at the miraculousness of these unlikely friendships, wonder at how these animals ever met and fell in love with each other…and ask yourself, WHY CAN’T HUMANS ACCEPT AND LOVE EACH OTHER THE SAME WAY AS ANIMALS. We are, after all, the same species, with common DNA running through our veins. So why are we always at war with each other? Why the violence and hate? Why the killing, raping, pillaging, shooting, blowing up, destroying etc?? Why is the human species so violent?
