Interior Department to allow imports of elephant and lion trophies from Africa.
I am horrified and heartbroken.
What is it going to take for us to awaken to the value of all lives and the one and only planet that supports and sustains us?
I can only look to one of the many spiritual meanings of the elephant to hold on to in this moment for a glimmer of hope:
Elephants show us that by supporting and loving one another, our own ability to thrive in the physical world is enhanced.
May it ultimately be so.
There is mystery behind that masked gray visage, an ancient life force, delicate and mighty, awesome and enchanted, commanding the silence ordinarily reserved for mountain peaks, great fires, and the sea.
