DID YOU KNOW THAT FISH TALK?
YES, THEY CHATTER TO EACH OTHER ALL THE TIME!
SCIENTISTS HAVE RECENTLY DISCOVERED WHAT ALL OF US WHO'VE BEEN OBSERVANT ALREADY KNEW - THAT FISH ARE COMMUNICATIVE AND, LIKE US, CURIOUS, HAVE PERSONALITIES, TEASE, CHASE, PLAY GAMES, AND OBVIOUSLY FEEL - JUST LIKE WE DO!
WE USUALLY JUST DO NOT LISTEN.ANYONE'S WHO'S HAD A FISH AND BEEN OPEN TO NOTICING KNOWS THAT THEY DISPLAY INTEREST, COMPASSION, FUNLOVINGNESS, AND AFFECTION.THEY'RE JUST LIKE US, IN SHORT, DESPITE THE DISTANCE CRUEL PEOPLE HAVE TRIED TO PUT BETWEEN US AND OUR FELLOW ANIMALS IN THE SEA.
THINK ABOUT THEM FOR A MOMENT, NOT AS FOREIGN BEINGS POPULATING DISTANT SEAS, BUT THINK OF ONE INDIVIDUAL FISH, FROM A BENIGN GROUP OF FISHES. LOOK NOT TO THE MINOR DIFFERENCES IN LOCUTION DEVICES - FOR INSTANCE, OUR OWN ORGANISM'S ORGANIZATION EMPLOYS LENGTHY APPENDAGES CALLED ARMS AND LEGS - AND OUR OWN SPECIES RESEMBLES INSECTS IN THIS FEATURE MORE THAN ANY OTHER ANIMAL GROUP - NOTICE RATHER THE SIMILARITIES, THE EXACT KINSHIP IN FEATURES WE SHARE WITH FISH.
FISH LOVE TO PLAY WITH US, GIVEN THE CHANCE. THEY'LL CAVORT AND RACE IN AND OUT OF THE AREAS AROUND YOUR ANKLES AND FEET, IF YOU'RE GENTLE. FISH HAVE PERSONALITIES JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER ANIMAL.
THEY HAVE EMOTIONS AND INTELLIGENCE, THEY PLAN THINGS OUT, THEY HAVE FUN, FEEL ALL THE FEELINGS WE DO, JUST WANT TO LIVE LIFE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.
NEXT TIME YOU'RE AT THE SEASIDE OR NEXT TO A LAKE OR STREAM, TAKE THE TIME TO PLAY WITH A FISH. SOME MAY BE BE SHY, OTHERS, BOLD AND INQUISITIVE. WHETHER ACTING FROM MEMORY, OR WHETHER YOUP'VE GONE TO THEIR HABITAT, REMEMBER OR IMAGINE ONE, RELAX, AND ENJOY THIS MEDITATIVE COMMUNING WITH ANOTHER SOUL.
LOOK INTO THE EYES OF THE FISH YOU HAVE JUST IMAGINED.
BRING HIS FACE CLOSE TO YOUR OWN AND JUST COMMUNE WITH HIS SPIRIT.
WHILE HE PERHAPS CONTINUES TO FLUTTER HIS FINS - HIS EQUIVALENT OF OUR ARMS AND LEGS - FEEL THE LIFE ENERGY, THE VIBRANCY, THE INTELLIGENCE IN HIM OR HER. FEEL, INTUIT, THE THOUGHTS, THE CURIOSITY WHICH HOLDS HIS COMMUNICATION WITH YOU, HIS OBVIOUS INTEREST.
TO DO THIS WITH EVERY BEING TYPE ON THE PLANET - REALIZING THAT EACH MEMBER OF EACH SPECIE HAS HIS OWN INDIVIDUAL GIFTS AND THAT EACH SPECIE GROUP HAS ITS' OWN WAYS OF COMMUNICATION - WILL EXPAND YOUR OWN SOUL.
(This Meditation was given to us by our own Yoga Mermaid to use to tell us all how cool Fish are!)
IN THE PLIGHT OF THE FISH, ESPECIALLY NOW IN THE GULF OF MEXICO, WHERE FISH BEAR THE MOST OF THE HARDSHIP, TERROR, AND DEATH, OUR UNDERSTANDING AND COMPASSION FOR THEM WILL SERVE NOT ONLY TO ENLARGE YOUR HEART, TO HEAL YOU, BUT WILL ALSO LEAD YOU TO THE ASSURANCE THAT WE ARE ALL ALIKE, AND THAT TO VIEW FISH AS FOOD ITEMS IS OUTRAGEOUS.
IT IS CANNIBALISM.THE SO-CALLED FACT THAT THEY ARE FURTHER DOWN THE SO-CALLED "FOOD CHAIN" - AN EVIL FACET OF LINEAR-THINKING DEVISED BY THOSE WHO SEEK LOOPHOLES IN ORDER TO PURSUE THEIR BAD ADDICTIONS AND IMPULSES, (AND , BY THE WAY, WE HUMAN APES OURSELVES ARE VERY FAR DOWN THE FOOD CHAIN, DESPITE ALL OUR WEAPONRY AGAINST DEFENSELESS ANIMALS) -
THE FACT THAT FISH DO NOT ENJOY THE MORE OBVIOUS KINSHIP WITH US THAT OTHER MAMMALS DO, LIKE BEING WARM-BLOODED, LIKE LIVING IN THE WORLD OF AIR, LIKE BEARING LIVE YOUNG , (MOST) AND SUCKLING THEM, RAISING THEM, DOES NOT MAKE THEM ANY LESS CLOSELY RELATED TO US IN SPIRIT, IN THE SOULAR REALM. AND, IN FACT, WE HAVE SO MUCH IN COMMON WITH FISH - EVEN INCLUDING TALKING AND SINGING !
YES, THE MUSIC OF THE SEA, THE VOCALS STREAMING THROUGH ARE NOT ONLY FROM THE SEA MAMMALS. THE FISH, ALSO SPEAK TO EACH OTHER AND MUMBLE TO THEMSELVES. THEY CONVERSE AND SING, SOME WITH LONG TUNES AND OTHERS WITH STACCATTO CLICKS AND HUMMS. THEY'RE ENGAGING LITTLE BEINGS, AND VERY ENTERTAINING.
ANYONE WHO'S EVER EVEN BEEN LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE SHARED SOME OF HIS CHILDHOOD WITH A GOLDFISH FOR A PAL KNOWS THAT THEY'RE VERY SOULFUL AND FUN TO HAVE AROUND. SOME PEOPLE WHO WISH TO MAKE MONEY BY PROFITEERING ON DEFENSELESS FISH TRY TO PORTRAY THEIR OILS AS "NATURE FOODS'.
DON'T BE FOOLED. NOT ONLY ARE FISH OILS FULL OF CRUELTY, BUT THEY'RE ALSO FILLED WITH TOXINS, MERCURY POISONING, AS IS IN ALL SO-CALLED "SEA FOOD", ( WHICH ARE REALLY DEAD BODIES PLUNDERED AND MURDERED FROM THE SEA ), AND - THESE OILS ARE RANCID, CAUSE HUMANS STOMACH DISTRESS AND WORSE, AND ARE VILE AND DISGUSTING.
EFA'S AND HEALTHY OILS ARE OBTAINED INSTEAD FORM PLANT SOURCES LIKE OIL FROM FLAXSEED. THE OILS WHICH ACTUALLY PROVIDE HEALING NUTRIENTS AND HEALING CURES ARE FROM THE EASILY DIGESTED AND ASSIMILATED - AND COMPASSIONATELY OBTAINED - IN HEALTHY OILS, SUCH AS THE BLEND OF HEALTHY PLANET OILS IN UDO'S CHOICE, A GREAT OIL SUPPLEMENT OF ALL THE EFA'S NECESSARY FOR ANYONE AND READILY AVAILABLE AT YOUR LOCAL HEALTH FOOD STORE. PLUS, BY USING OLIVE OIL, PREFERABLY VIRGIN, COLD-PRESSED, ORGANICALLY GROWN OLIVE OIL, YOU'LL BE HELPING YOUR BODY STAY EVEN HEALTHIER.

LOVING - LOVING WITHOUT BOUNDARIES, LOVING FISH AND ALL OTHER CREATURES - LOVING THEM AS A PART OF YOUR OWN SOUL, YOUR OWN HEALING, WILL WORK WONDERS IN YOUR LIFE. TRULY, HONESTLY LOVING IS TO "FIRST, DO NO HARM". TO NEVER CAUSE PAIN TO ANOTHER FELLOW BEING IS TO BE TRULY FREE TO HEAL AND TO THRIVE. TO LET GO OF THE INNATE GUILT WE ALL FEEL IF WE HAVE CONSPIRED, COLLUDED, FABRICATED EXCUSES, OR MERELY ALLOWED OTHERS TO CAUSE HARM TO ANY OTHER LIVING BEING.
THE RIDICULOUS EXCUSES MADE BY THOSE WHO WISH TO BE CRUEL INCLUDE THE ABSURD IDEA THAT IF WE HUMANS HAVE SOULS THEN THE OTHER FELLOW BEINGS DO NOT. DON'T FALL FOR THESE COMPLETELY UNSPIRITUAL IDEAS. YOU CAN FEEL THE TRUTH INSIDE YOU - THAT COMPLETE COMPASSION IS THE WAY TO ALL HEALING, TO ALL THRIVING, AND TO ENLIGHTENMENT, AS ALL THE ORIGINATORS OF ALL THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS HAVE ASSERTED AND BUILT THE FOUNDATIONS OF THEIR RELIGIONS UPON.
AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO EAT MAHI MAHI, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NOT A FISH, BUT A DOLPHIN, A FELLOW MAMMAL, AND PROTEST HIS/HER APPEARING ON THE RESTAURANTS' MENUS IN YOUR AREA.
SOMETIMES ENLIGHTENING A PROPRIETOR WILL HELP TO SAVE THE MAHI MAHIS, AT LEAST.

AND REMEMBER, FISHING HURTS !
Remember your very first pal? Most likely he or she was a Fish!
Remember your own fish, and think of him or her !
Be Kind to all Fishies!
Fishes Have Feelings Too! Just like You!
Also, this is from Ocean, one of our Eco Celebrity Eco Interviewees : I have always loved fish, and had them as companions, in the house and while I'm swimming or surfing in the sea, as playful sidekicks. I was horrified to be at an occasion once where the host and hostess's idea of a nice centerpiece included a little glass with a live goldfish at every table!
I asked about whether they had included plans for those who weren't taken home, and whether they'd printed out instructions for keeping them healthy and food samples.
"No", they'd answered, they just thought they were cute as ornaments!!!
I was outraged and went to the room where they were being scooped out of a plastic tub on the floor like they were part of the punch being served.The man there said they were bred to die anyway, and were not nurtured or given the oxygenated water they needed.
I saved the ones others did not save, bought a big tank with oxygen and took care of them, found some homes, and still have some.I never associated with those cruel people again who'd thrown that party.
I hope they become compassionate sometime in the near future. When you see something like this - help - stand up for these helpless beings who talk but who aren't listened to by most people.
Always throw eco parties instead. Compassion is much more fun.

... in the most splendid seas off exotic islands - why bother these exquisite and harmless fish ? Merely because giant chains like Michael's or Wal-Mart present their dried-up bodies, frozen ...
