The whole universe is one and connected through an intelligent living force that permeates everything and connects all living creatures. The wise call this force ‘absolute awareness or - consciousness’ which is (among many other things;) defined by a state of non-thinking and intuitiveness. It’s all about feeling, not about thinking. Dolano, a zen-teacher was asked ones “What about [zen and] animals?” Her answer, although simple at first, shocked me and changed my view on the subject profoundly : “You have to realize; they feel the same way as we do.” Messages of Trust underlines these fundamental truths and puts them into practise. Humanity urgently needs to change it’s view about the value of other living creatures on this beautiful and astounding planet earth. Thank you for doing exactly that and for making this world a better place for all of us.
