A Camel's Gift of Grace

By Allen & Linda Anderson

By Damaris Miller

I was at the Greeley Stampede working as a wrangler one beautiful day in June 2008. This is our yearly celebration with lots of things to do for the kids.  When my shift was finished, I walked through the park area. I noticed a large camel waiting to give rides.  As I watched him, I started to talk to him on the inner, soul to soul.
Being an animal lover, I said, "I am so sorry you have to do these things with all the noise around."
With such grace he said to me, "Acceptance means for now, this situation, this moment, requires me to do it, and so I do it willingly."
The camel's communication reminded me of an important quote from the book A NEW EARTH. I had been reading it at that time.
A quiet went through me. I felt no one around, just the camel and me. He had no anger in him, only love for what he was doing.
What a lesson for us all. It doesn't matter whether you are human, horse, dog, or a huge camel.  The lessons are the same, because we are all soul learning the same lessons on our road to God.
The camel's grace was so evident. It made me realize that our teachers are all around us.  We just have to be open and listen.
Thank you for the gift from a very special camel.

 SOMETHING TO THING ABOUT:
When you observe animals doing less than pleasant work, what lessons
in graceful acceptance could you learn from them?
