I am reading Cesar Millan's book Cesar's Way on communicating with dogs. It parallels what I am learning in the horse workshop. He says:

    "All animals communicate using energy, constantly. Energy is beingness. Energy is who you are and what you are doing at any given moment.  That's how animals see you.  That's how your dog sees you.  Your energy in that present moment defines who you are."

    We sometimes forget that we are animals, and their  way of communication is important for us to study and know, so as to better know ourselves and how we interact.

    It might be helpful for our politicians to know something about threat and response.

    I read these words by William Fisher.

"Nobel Peace Prize-winner and Iranian human rights advocate and dissident Shirin Ebadi was asked on PBS last week about the $75 million the US State Department intends to spend supporting pro-democracy groups in her country, to which she answered, "Can democracy be brought to people by bombs? Democracy is a culture. It has to come from within a society, not brought by America to a society.""

Perhaps we can learn from horses and dogs how to communicate with other people and countries. Bush's bullying is helping no one. May we see a recognition of what democracy truly is and how it forms.
