As a columnist for Eckankar’s “Animals Are Soul” blog, I had the opportunity to be interviewed for an “Animal Writes” podcast on the Pet Life Radio network. It was delightful to talk with the podcast’s host, Tim Link, and his animal-loving audience. To listen to the podcast, click on any of the links at the end of this article.

I live in the United Kingdom and had traveled to London with my husband for a day. I don’t go there very often but occasionally like to visit the art galleries. After a good day out, it soon was time for our train journey home via the underground train to Paddington Station in London.

I was looking out the window of my home one summer morning, wondering why I always reacted a certain way to a particular situation. Suddenly I saw a very large woodpecker fly to the tree in my backyard. He began to loudly peck at a branch and was tearing apart the limb. Very quickly, I got the message: I needed to stop allowing my mind to peck on this situation. It was hindering my spiritual growth.

On a warm, sunny afternoon, accompanied by our little Australian shepherd dog, Sadie, I was cleaning the chicken pen, feeding the chickens, and handing out daily afternoon treats. Unexpectedly I heard a goose flying low over the top of my head. It landed in front of our house on a nearby field.
