Podcast Episode 13: Consciousness and the Web of Life with Dr. Joanne Lefebvre Connolly, DVM

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast Logo

This podcast series focuses on the intersection of Consciousness and Self. This is our “Journey into Enlightenment.” At the core of human reality is Consciousness. Humans are self-defining creatures. We develop rule sets and stories that generate our experiences of reality. Consciousness is the state of awareness in each of us where our self-defined realities are only one of the many options in potential that could be expressed.

Each episode you will join Janet and her friends to gather in this core in Heart Centered Awareness. You will feel this state where time and space are malleable, potential is active and change in our day to day experiences can be felt in the moment. You will witness this sharing in the expansive variety of expressions of Consciousness, and as form and language in our physical and non-physical worlds. Experience new definitions in Self and join in the collective community we call Consciousness.

Essence: Episode NotesHeart with a tree of life inside

Life is a transcendent state weaving together many forms of expression. Whether it be earth, animal or human, all Life, past, present and future, resides together in Consciousness, no one thing separate. Dr. Joanne Lefebvre Connolly DVM and Janet contemplate this shared state with wisdom gained from our past and present pets and nature. In being aware of this web of life, we can take better care of ourselves and be better stewards of all living creatures and our unique home planet Earth.

Language: Featured Words in ContextTree of life with heart on trunk

A pet is any domesticated or tamed animal that is kept as a companion and cared for affectionately. Wildlife is living animals and especially mammals, birds, and fishes that are neither human nor domesticated. Some people try to make wildlife into pets.

Human animals are into Ownership. We say that by possessing or claiming things, be they people, animals, or land they are less than us and ours to do with. This is arrogance. Stewards look after and care for those around them. They are not arrogant.

Ageless: Consciousness CookiesCookies – Food for thought

Dr. Joanne offers us some simple guidelines to participating in the Web of Life.
“Be Oneness, Be Greatness!“
“Animals are the best teachers!“
“Follow the flow of energy for better living and better dying.“
“You know best what’s best for you.“

Blog: Consciousness and the Web of LifeQuan Yin

Our spirituality is the quality of the essence of the spirit lurking within each human animal. It is also the connection to something bigger than just us as one individual. We are always in relation to every other human animal, every other animal whether four-legged, or no legs at all or fins. We are in relation to the flora and nature around us. We are surrounded by life shared. We each have place in the scheme of things.
