Talking to Animals/Amen

Here’s a quote from a beautiful WordPress post by Traveling Thane Furrows:

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 do not know you will fear. What one fears one destroys.
Dan George, chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation

That’s it. Amen.

    I’m just beginning to explore this amazing world of native wisdom, Pen. Unfortunately, it’s an oral tradition, so somebody had to write it down or it’s now lost.

    Excellent quotation Monica, if we develop a rapport with our beautiful wildlife we can learn to live in harmony with them and appreciate their beauty.

    Hi Bluebee, I’m trying to view this, so far without success. Tells me I need different software. I will keep trying – thanks for sending this along.

    Yes. Saw an incredible documentary last night called ‘Oceans’ which really brings this message home.

    Hi Julie, Thanks so much. I have the feeling that this is a deep well from which I’d like to drink a lot more.

    Isn’t that the truth, dear Laz?! Too bad we ran roughshod over native wisdom. We’re still running.
