Prayers on the Road

Whenever I see poor dead animals on the road, I put my hand over my heart and say a little prayer to wish them well on their journey to the other side. I have no time for the nonsensical idea that animals do not have souls. Everything in creation is ensouled. Sometimes, of course, as I drive past I discover I have just prayed for a soggy T-shirt. But that's okay. Then the universe and I have laugh. (Though one must add a pox on litterbugs.)

Animals definetly have souls. And I suspect that, since the t-shirt was probably made of cotton fibers, it has a soul too.

I tend to differentiate between animation on macrocosmic and microcosmic levels. Mind you, a scientist friend of mine maintains that toxic substances are tortured molecules.
