Spirituality – Bee Spiritual: Petting on your Karma

Posted Friday, December 5th, 2008 at 7:00 pm by Marissa in Cultural Bees. More in 10021

Find yourself envious of of your friend’s bond with his dog? Maybe you look lovingly into dog parks around the city and wish you had a pal to call your own. Whatever may motivate you to at least go and look at some homeless pets who would love your company, please find it within your heart to do so this Holiday.

A pet offers more than unconditional love. They are proven to lower your blood pressure, provide companionship so one feels less lonely, decrease stress, and overall – improve your health and mood. They get you outside to breathe in fresh air, talk to people and other dog/cat owners, and smile. Once you find your adopted pet, you will be one of ‘those’ people telling stories about how grateful your beloved companion is to you. It’s so different than going to a breeder and picking out your ‘new’ pet. These animals have had no chance at being ‘picked’. They have been disregarded, abused, left out in the cold, hit by cars, unclaimed or thrown out.

Below, find a comprehensive resource for adoption events going around the city. Karma is the essence of  “what goes around, comes around”. So give some love this holiday season, and get a bunch of love back. Visit back next week for a continuation of events in December.

Spiritual growth is not a means for escaping from responsibilities,
behaving strangely and becoming an impractical person. It is a method
of growing and becoming a stronger, happier and more responsible person.

Karma Enhancers

Be loving. There is nothing in this world more redeeming than having a connection with a pet; Especially, a pet you rescued. They are well aware when a person saves their life, takes them out of a dingy wet cell, and gives them long walks and kisses for days and days on end. Wouldn’t you be aware of a better life having come from a horrible one? The Annual Pet Adoption Event, via the ASPCA Adoption Center takes place on December 13th and 14th. Love is something we all want for the holidays, so why wouldn’t you get an unconditional source of it? Every new pet comes spayed or neutered with up-to-date vaccinations and a microchip, with a free follow-up vet exam. You even get a free gift when you adopt, not like you need one since the pets are free. All they cost is a little compassion. Find your newest best friend at 424 E. 92nd, from 11 am – 7 pm on Saturday, and 11 am – 5 pm on Sunday.

If you can’t make that event, check out these – and do pass the word on folks. The animals will be awaiting your warmth inside of the North Shore Animal League Adoption Van.
