Offering Spiritual Light

Of all the animals, the cow received the most from me spiritually when I lifted it up. Then came the bull. The donkey was the worst. The deer received a little. One horse received a lot. The lamb also received.

Both the elephants received so much. The big one, Jack, received a lot. Before the lift, I garlanded it and said, “You are my friend, my heart’s friend, my soul’s friend, my life’s friend.”

Karen, the little elephant, also received, but Jack’s soul is more mature, much more advanced. Jack will have a human incarnation, whereas Karen will take a few more animal incarnations.
