Morality for Pet Keepers

on October 14, 2020

Moral ethical values equate to a person whose morality is reflected in his willingness to do the right thing – even if it is hard or dangerous. Someone doesn’t need to be moral to be ethical. There may be someone who has no moral compass but follows ethics to be in good standing with society. On the other hand, someone can violate ethics all the time because they believe something is morally good. So where does this leave us?

“He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” (Emmanuel Kant) We all wish to be thought of as a good person and this starts by how we treat others. I have written before about the process of learning to love and just to summarize, we begin by caring for plants, then animals, then people. To be complete here this actually begins with loving the self, so the cycle goes full circle. Since the world is a projection of mind… your mind… what you see is what you are. I know this can seem harsh and you’re questioning its validity. This is a good thing. Don’t take my word or anyone’s as fact. Establish the fact through testing and self inquiry. I will say here, what I share has been tested by many wise individuals over time, so perhaps use this advice as a starting point for exploration.

The focus of this blog is on pets and the keepers of pets. Let’s be clear here, a pet is an animal kept by a person in their own space and for the pleasure of the keeper. “A pet, or companion animal, is an animal kept primarily for a person’s company or entertainment rather than as a working animal, livestock or a laboratory animal. … Pets can give companionship to people who are living alone or elderly adults who do not have adequate social interaction with other people.” (Dictionary.com)

A PET’S TEN COMMANDMENTS

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don’t be angry with me for long and don’t lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don’t understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I’m not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can’t bear to watch. Don’t make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

~Take a moment today to say thanks for your pets. Enjoy and take good care of them.

Life would be a much duller, less joyful experience without our beloved animal friends.

~We do not have to wait for Heaven, to be surrounded by peace, love, and joyfulness. It is here on earth, sitting right beside you!

Obviously these commandments refer to dogs or perhaps cats, though they could also apply to any pet, mammal, reptile, or avian with wide variations in life span. Some reptiles and birds can out live the pet keeper. Notice I do not use the word, owner. We do NOT own our pets, we are custodians and companions. We often pay for this privilege, but this is about our market system and not about owning a living being. I find this concept imperative to good relationships of any kind. Anyone with an animal friend can relate! The Master/Serf concept went out a very long time ago. How you think of your pet will reflect in all your relationships, so be aware.

Now let’s take this to a new level, a Spiritual Perspective, because many of us never consider the spiritual benefit of the pet keeper experience. This may be deep for some, so if you have questions I am happy to assist and I will provide a link to The Law of One (LOO) below. This is a quote from a discussion group I belong to concerning LOO.

“Are pets that have been taken in and nurtured by humans considered second density or third density beings? (2nd Density Growth = biological life, 3rd Density Self-Awareness = The density of choice between service to self or service to others, humanity)

I understand that the criteria for 3D is to become inspirited / self aware, so I’m wondering if pet’s are considered self-aware?

Answer from a member of the group: Ra says that pets are “perhaps” the most common occurrence of second density harvesting to third. (meaning the animal becomes human in the next incarnation) I’m generous and I expand “pet” to mean “any domesticated plant or animal that is being taken care of by a human” – it’s my belief that when we remove an entity from its natural environment, give it a place to live, feed it, choose how/when/ if it reproduces, and love it, then we are individuating that entity from the group mind and projecting a third density awareness, be it rock, flower, or parakeet.

Quote from the book, The Law of One – the teachings of Ra:

19.2 > Questioner: Let’s take the point at which an individualized entity of second density is ready for transition to third. Is this second density being what we would call animal?

Ra: I am Ra. There are three types of second density entities which become, shall we say, inspirited. The first is animal. This is the most predominant. The second is the vegetable, most especially that which you call sound vibration complex “tree”. These entities are capable of giving and receiving enough love to become individualized. The third category is mineral. Occasionally a certain location, place as you may call it, becomes energized to individuality through the love it receives and gives in relationship to a third density entity which is in relationship to it. This is the least common transition.

20.3 > Questioner: So more and more second density entities are making it into third density. Can you give me an example of a second density entity coming into third density, say, in the recent past?

Ra: I am Ra. Perhaps the most common occurrence of second density graduation during third density cycle is the so called pet.

The animal which is exposed to the individualizing influences of the bond between animal and third density entity, this individualization causes a sharp rise in the potential of the second density entity so that upon the cessation of physical complex the mind/body complex does not return unto the undifferentiated consciousness of that species, if you will.

Question from a member of the group: So what I’m understanding is that the domesticated animal / plant would still be in 2nd density however it’s awareness/consciousness has been greatly heightened therefore accelerating it towards 3rd density. But a cat remains in 2D whilst it still has a cat body complex. Or can a cat have a 3D awareness yet a 2D body?

Answer from same member of the group above: A cat absolutely can have 3D awareness in a 2D body. Ra talks fairly extensively about the group’s cat, Gandalf, who was third density harvestable in his previous lifetime but still came back as a cat. Ra also said Gandalf could come back again, as a cat, if he wanted. 2D entities can definitely begin the lessons of 3D.

30.13 > Questioner: I was wondering if the male cat, Gandalf, has benefited by that mechanism in some way or by other mechanisms in increasing spiritual potential or understanding.

Ra: I am Ra. We examine this information and find it harmless. The second density entity, sound vibration Gandalf, is a rare sample of its species due first to previous individualization, secondly due to a great amount of investment in this particular life experience. This is the greatest catalyst in this entity’s progress. It is very unusual, as we have said. However, the experiences of bisexual reproduction which were of the nature of the entity Gandalf were to a small extent of spiritual benefit due to an unusual relationship with another entity, this also what you call a cat. This entity also being of an unusually third density orientation or investment from a previous life experiences. Thus the formation of what could be seen to be recognizably love did exist in this relationship.

Response from Cameron: Perfect, that clears up everything that I was trying to understand. Thank you for taking the time to find and share this.

This all demonstrates the deeper spiritual benefits of Pet keeping. To state it simply, our relationships with our pets boosts both the pets growth as well as the keepers. It is all about service! I will not go into the details of service to self (STS) and service to others (STO) as this discussion would be extensive. They are fairly self explanatory. One is no more “right” than the other, though the STS path is difficult and eventually ends in 6th density where both paths become one in service to the Prime Creator. Think of this however works for you. The important thing is service and respecting Free Will. All crimes of mankind come down to violations of free will. To serve the self often requires these violations, for example, murder is a violation of free will. One is literally removing the others choice to live. This applies equally to pets as it does to people or any living being. Thus the Buddhist (and several others) teaching of respecting all living beings. Violations lead us to judgment and guilt, so I will briefly broach this by saying, Judge not lest ye be judged, or more directly, to judge another is to judge the self because they are yourself. Guilt is a tool of the ego mind (the separated mind). So guilt serves only to divide and cause pain where none is required. These principles are explained in A Course in Miracles (ACIM) and in LOO, so I will not go into them here.

Speaking of Free Will, the topic of domestication needs to be covered. Is it our right to take animals out of nature and keep them as pets? Is this a violation of free will? The answer is not clear, at least to me. Often the animal will have a more comfortable and easy life in domestication. Though the life will not be in harmony with nature and exposes the animal to harms which do not exist otherwise. It can be a great service to the animal to provide your 3D love and attention. Ultimately we each have to answer this question for ourselves. The power of the mind to rationalize anything we choose to do is frightening sometimes. Proceed with caution and with caring. Keep a mindset of Service to Others! (if you have chosen the STS path you would not likely be reading this blog)

Our pets are windows into loving and knowing ourselves. To have a pet is a great privilege, so treat the relationship as such. We serve the pet by caring for it and the pet serves us by sharing love and companionship. This caring can be extended to life itself and takes many forms. Share this love in any way you feel serves both you and others. “It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life, that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Blessings on your Journey of Love!
