Many of the animals on land, live in or near the waters such as otters, beavers, seals and walruses to name just a few, but spend most of their time in water. Penguins get all of their food in the water, but also have to be wary of sharks and orcas who are on the hunt for a meal.
Several years ago I was watching a film on tv about whales and orcas, and the most amazing thing was captured on the film. While filming an group of orcas eating penguins very near the shore, the last orca came upon a penguin and lifted him up out of the water with his nose and tossed him to the shore. He had had his fill, he needed no more, his spirit opened to the spirit of the penguin as if to say I honor you and bless you on your way. Of course I couldn't hold back the tears, it was beautiful and it made my admiration and compassion for animals burst open. The design of the universe seemed so perfect, as if we have an inner intelligence and need for balance, as well as an intrinsic need to honor all life, even if it is our source of sustenance.
