Whale Rescue-A Story of Blessing

Whale Rescue-A Story of Blessing

If you read the front page story of the SF Chronicle on Thursday, December 15, 2005, you would have read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighed down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line (rope) wrapped around her body -- her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farralone Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her, a very dangerous proposition. One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer. They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around -- she thanked them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

Prayer is a Change of Mind

Dear Friends,
Here's a little prayer to help you rise above the limited, fear-based thought forms that otherwise might keep you bound. Remember: when you change your mind, you change your life. And prayer is a change of mind.

Dear God,
Please post your Angels
around my mind,
to keep at bay
all dark
and fearful thoughts.
I give to you
my thoughts
about everything.
Please lift them up
to heavenly Truth,
that I might be set free.
Amen

I highly recommend

Dear Friends,

Right now I'm read "Spiritual Economics" by Eric Butterworth. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a way to apply spirituality to your money issues. Very inspiring...

Best,
Marianne
