The law of Karma states “What goes around comes around”. I believe this.
Life does not just happen to us, it requires our active participation. We have a very real power to transform the world around us by changing our thoughts, emotions and, consequently our actions.
Today I want to tell you the story about a black cat named Moses. When my friend, Emanuela, saw Moses at SPCA he was 8 years old. Both of his ears were torn, his tail was broken in four places and some of his fur was missing. Doctors said Moses had about one year left to live, as he was diagnosed with cat’s HIV. No one wanted him and that was the main reason Emanuela took him.
She gave a home to the cat that for years has been used as bait at illegal dog fights, because she felt that it was the right thing to do.
Moses is now 11 years old. He likes to run in the garden, sleep by the heater in the winter time and what is more surprising – after everything that he has been through, he still loves people and does not mind dogs. (you can see Moses’ pictures here)
