Animals Teach Us Spirituality and Increase Our Capacity for Love and Joy

Animals have been the spiritual companions of humans since the beginning of time. They teach us about love: how to love, how to enjoy being loved, how loving itself is an activity that generates more love, radiating out and encompassing an ever larger circle of others. We sense that we can benefit spiritually in our relationship with animals, and we are right. We recognize that animals seem to feel more intensely and purely than we do.
