Grief and Gratitude for the Whales of Southern Oceans

I just returned from the largest, last pristine expanse of wilderness on the planet–Antarctica. While I was there, I had an overwhelming sense of grief and gratitude about the whales that were summarily slaughtered over the last two and a half centuries. Piles of whale bones caught the eye almost everywhere we landed. I realized after a while that that was one of the reasons I was there—to be an ambassador of light, forgiveness, thanksgiving. To say “we are sorry as a species for your demise”. And I realized too that those who killed these mighty animals were also being true to their nature as well. We are an industrious species.

I sat high on a hillside and prayed. Then, I could feel the power of forgiveness, love and light of all of the sundances I have ever been to, come through me. I was a beacon, a crystal, an emissary of light moving around the world to bring the spirit and power of love—today it was to Antarctica, and the whales. In the past, it was South Africa. That is what we as lightworkers do.
