Todays lesson....

Well I still haven't fully deciphered the meaning of today's lesson. Perhaps it was something along the lines of not interfering in other beings karma.
Yesterday Rain and I saved a frog. We went to check the mail and when we looked in the letter box there were no letters but a poor little green tree frog who'd been half baked in the heat. It was a very hot day and it must have been boiling inside that little metal box. The frog had obviously found his way in but couldn't get out. So we took him and wet him down and released him onto a tree (near where I park the van.) Today after I'd done the shopping and unpacked the car I closed the door and heard a horrible squeaking sound. When I opened it again there was the little frog... squashed, I couldn't help wondering if I had left him in the letter box maybe he would have found his way out and still been alive.
Then tonight as if to reiterate the message, when I was sitting on the door step, I saw a little Christmas beetle stuck on his back. And poking its head out from under the step was a big ugly cane toad ready to pounce and have his dinner. I quickly turned the beetle over and moved him away only to watch my puppy pounce on it literally 10 seconds later and gobble it up.
As I said I still haven't accepted the message the universe is trying to teach me. I just can't help myself when it comes to 'helping' things or people. Maybe I just need to stand back and let things be........hmmmmm.

I do this too. I can't help myself. I once waded out into a lake to scoop up a dragonfly and move it to land where I unstick its wings and watched it fan them dry. I also flip overturned beetles. There was a fallen baby squirrel once, though, that I didn't do anything for, because I didn't know what to do, and later found it ravaged by a cat.

Oh but it is so hard is it not? DB two days in a row tried to save lizards in the back yard from our dog Bella. Yesterday he was so upset as it was the 2nd one she has killed in 2 days that he told me he smacked her until she cried. And took the lizard away from her. I did not know what to say or do, he is upset with her but she was upset at being smacked! We don't smack so I think he traumatized himself by smacking her too! He was hugging her profusely half an hour later.
