The pigeon and the monkey: a wondrous tale

In a world where there is so much confusion and violence and instability I thought I'd take a moment to post this photo as to me it symbolizes the simplicity and beauty of love and friendship and peace.

This little monkey was abandoned by his mother and was dying in the wild when he was rescued and brought to a sanctuary. He was mending but seemed "spiritless" so the people at the sanctuary put this pigeon in with him to keep him company. He attached himself to the pigeon and they have been inseparable ever since. He is doing remarkably well now.

May we all find the ability to reach out to those who need us and share ourselves in a more meaningful and more connected way...

Love is love.

Isn't that what it's all really and truly about? What we gain from giving of ourselves, of sharing ourselves, is abundant and profound. We are changed, then, when we let go of what we think we need, and open ourselves to the simple and abundant riches that come from sharing ourselves in meaningful ways. We connect, and in doing so, make ourselves whole.

I think a huge lesson can be learned from the story of those two. A very simple story of what can be achieved.

Thank you for posting that. It has a very calming effect when you look at it...those eyes! Such peace and calm tranquility.

Wow!
That picture says it all. What bird would stand there and be held... what monkey would rest so peacefully on a bird?
Love and Trust!
