This is so beautifully rendered. Thank you.

A note to readers of the 1/10/13 writings above…Deb shared with me that she received a short post from a FB friend who briefly mentioned an amazing incident of elephants who paid their respects to a man they knew who had passed away. That was all the info Deb had and was immediately impulsed to write the above through the Big Elephant (or should I say, vice versa?). Anyway, I was intrigued by this and started a google search and here are some excerpts from two of several folks who had written about this. Amazing how the Big Elephant's writing has captured the heart of this story….

Excerpts from The Daily Galaxy 10/5/12:
On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony (a legend in South Africa and author of "The Elephant Whisperer") died. Two days after his passing, wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved man-friend. A total of 31 elephants…walking slowly for days, making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat, had patiently walked miles, to get to his South African House. Lawrence's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years. they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything. Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home.

Excerpts from Rob Kirby of BeliefNet:
For 12 hours, two herds of wild South African elephants slowly made their way through the Zululand bush until they reached the house of late author Lawrence Anthony, the conservationist who saved their lives. The formerly violent, rogue elephants, destined to be shot a few years ago as pests, were rescued and rehabilitated by Anthony, who had grown up in the bush and was known as the “Elephant Whisperer.”

For two days the herds loitered at Anthony’s rural compound on the vast Thula Thula game reserve in the South African KwaZulu – to say good-bye to the man they loved. But how did they know he had died? Known for his unique ability to calm traumatized elephants, Anthony had become a legend.

The first herd to arrive at Thula Thula several years ago were violent. They hated humans. Anthony found himself fighting a desperate battle for their survival and their trust, which he detailed in The Elephant Whisperer.

So how, after Anthony’s death, did the reserve’s elephants — grazing miles away in distant parts of the park — know?

“A good man died suddenly,” says Rabbi Leila Gal Berner, Ph.D., “and from miles and miles away, two herds of elephants, sensing that they had lost a beloved human friend, moved in a solemn, almost ‘funereal’ procession to make a call on the bereaved family at the deceased man’s home.”

“If there ever were a time, when we can truly sense the wondrous ‘interconnectedness of all beings,’ it is when we reflect on the elephants of Thula Thula. A man’s heart stops, and hundreds of elephants’ hearts are grieving. This man’s oh-so-abundantly loving heart offered healing to these elephants, and now, they came to pay loving homage to their friend.”


Can there be any doubt … we are all One

The sun shone brightly in the southern sky
As The Big Elephant lifted her trunk
To bless the day as she did everyday.

It was then that she realized exactly why she did this
"Bless the Day". It was all about "energy" being sent forth.
She knew then that what she sent forth would come back to her.

But what exactly does "Bless" mean, she questioned?
Simply to bestow good upon whatever is present before you.
And so, she continued to bestow good upon everyday.

Bless this Day, became her mantra.
And everyday, what she put forth
Came back to her, magnified.

It was then that she realized
That she had the POWER

And have that blessing come back to her....

The Big Elephant felt the embrace of The Universe
It was like a wake up call in a sense
So, she went on alert in a way
And began to mark her steps in that day.

It seemed necessary to be definitive of what it was
That called to her in that day
To be attentive to
So, she had to back step and retrace.

It was then that she found that she was sitting
In the motion of an ongoing stream of recognition
Of the daily antics of her current circumstances
And that she had to record her responses.

Now, this seemed rather frivolous at the time.
However, it seemed that it became more important
With every stroke of experience in a day to day rhyme
That she was attempting to articulate.

And then she simply stopped. . .

She sauntered then to the pond that was before her
She lowered her head into the reverance of the waters
She seeped the succulence into her being and allowed
It to enwrap her being with its essence.

Succulence took precedence over all else....

Love, Deb

The Big Elephant paused in her confusion.
She shook her head in an attempt to clear
The airwaves that seemed to be penetrating
Her cognitive abilites that didn't seem to relate.

As The Big Elephant began talking to herself
In an attempt to understand the current events
She found herself replying in earnest
Hoping to find something that was in correlation to her state.

Of being in her assumptions of what had just prevailed
In her experience. What tender moments she found
Herself in. Taking a deep breath, she allowed her thoughts
To continue unevolved but simply with current stimulation.

Best I just rest for the evening before proceeding.
Best I just give "It" a rest as well.
Best I just let "It" ride.
Best I just call "Time Out".

And so, The Big Elephant did just that.
She called a halt to all further thought or actions
And simply rested in her own knowing of who she is
And allowed for all others to do whatever they chose to do.

With a heavy sigh of release, The Big Elephant allowed herself

.................................................. .........................Peace.

The Big Elephant felt her presence stabilize
Within her own Essence in the moment of her time.
It was as though she knew beyond herself
In that moment of reckoning.

So, she lent herself to offer of her assistance
To others not so inclined
To be able to hold themselves in the presence
Of the articulate deligation of communion.

In short, back stop, clap your hands and come to union.
What once has been, comes forth to be again
In a fashion that removes all doubt of deliverance
To a situation that revives itself on fruition.

In the stillness of the night, the heart beat still thrives
Within the Echo, I AM remain.

The Big Elephant was perched upon a high point
Pivoting to garner all the broadcasts
That were being sent out on this individual day
A day of celebration in so many many ways.

A celebration of life in general was the plan
Celebrating living in this life span
Then, loving life, so to speak
Is the plan of this day.

It was then that The Big Elephant questioned,
"Why shouldn't every day be a day of celebration?

Love, Deb

The Big Elephant sensed within the perimeter of her existance, another.
So long had The Big Elephant been alone, that when another came into
Her energy, she was point on.
Now, she stood solidly, holding her ground and simply waited, aware.

Within this waiting she sensed a tenderness of care that was directed.
Not only towards her but to everyone within the scope of the giver's range.
She was seemingly amused by this initially and smiled at the energy she felt.
Then, she moved forward into the melding and ask of the intent.

As the wave of her asking made contact, so then she felt the wave of answer come back...
She swayed then in the motion of the energy that made her swell within herself.
She rocked then like the big giant that she was and she owned it, the knowing that is.

That was it!!! The "knowing" had come to be. The knowing had come to replace the belief. Because the knowing gave notice of the experience that got the one from belief to knowing. Yes, "Knowing" comes from the "Experience".

The Big Elephant then was thrilled and she raised her trunk and let out a huge trumpet of BEING!!!!!!!! Can you hear it now?

Can you hear it now? BEING!!!!! Within the experience!!!

"Now, I know", said The Big Elephant.....

As the rain caressed the Mother Earth,
So did the Mother Earth caress the rain.
As The Big Elephant stood quietly beneath
The boughs of her beloved Baobab Tree,
So did the Baobab Tree caress her.

The Big Elephant felt the joy of knowing love.
To be loved and to love, thus becoming love.
In becoming love, she noticed no barriers,
No boundaries or stipulations, just being open
To giving just herself and receiving the same.

And, it was then that she realized
She had nothing else to do but just be for another
Herself, and stand stolidly by the side of another
Being there as they championed themselves
In whatever they needed to succeed.

She then freed herself to simply cheer another on...

Thanks Jade74 and Brit.

You know, whenever I feel like I "need" to be doing more or "saying" more or "directing" more, I just come back to this post and I feel in "balance" again. And then I quietly go about my way with a smile on my face and simply "allow".

Thank you Big Elephant!!!

I was wondering today, if I have done all I need to do, today,
And then it occurred to me that certainly I have for me to
Ask such a question, for certainly I would never consider if not.

The Big Elephant blended her day into the eve with respect
Of her repose and allowed herself to take a deep breath
Before she rested then in the swaying of the green of the leaves.

It had been a busy day, she delighted in all that had transpired
She recognized that she had put herself forward and vantaged
Herself in a most pleasant way, she smiled in delight of her being.

The Big Elephant then paused in her gratefulness for all that
She had experienced. She posed herself in respite, knowing that
All that she was has come from all that she purposed.

It was then that The Big Elephant felt the most gratitude.
Lifting her head before her evening rest, she gave one last
Pause for the eve and then gathered herself to sleep.

In her sleep, she dreamed. She dreamt of a Mountain that
She was yet to climb. Interestingly, she felt a calm knowing
That the climbing of this Mountain would be to her Ultimate Devine.

She rested then...

Love, Deb

It was a "Gathering Day", of sorts,
The Big Elephant thought.
Gathering all that she had purposed
Heretofore and now had found, another
Change coming 'round.

And in the coming of that change she found
All that she had learned coming forth to greet her.
It was from that learning that she was able to
Receive this new change without resistance
But with a knowing that all happens for the good of all.

In that "new light", The Big Elephant began to acknowledge
That another change was coming but now she found herself
"Inviting" it with anticipation. Because now she knew that
When one situation ends, it only opens up the door for another
To sweep itself across her plain in a new and inviting, exciting way.

So, now, she sat in anticipation, wondering with delight
What she would next experience. Full of anticipation and
Curiosity and a knowing that whatever it was would so fully
Continue to define who she truly is and allow her to delight
In her experience of being the best she could be in whatever situation

....She found herself...

For certainly that is what she had come to learn...
To find the best of herself in whatever situation
She found herself. That was her responsibility...
And, she found it was getting easier and easier
As she allowed herself to just go with the flow...

Acceptance of the situation that she was in and then
Finding her best self in whatever she was experiencing.
The Big Elephant then shook her head in agreement
With what she had come to know, saying "Yes, and so it is."
Taking another long deep breath, The Big Elephant,

....Turned her eyes towards the stars and identified with
the star that stood out in the darkness, the one who shone

Looking up to the sky, The Big Elephant thought,
"What a fog this is, what a messy fog."
The humidity was so thick she couldn't scrape it
With her heavy tusks. There was no seeing where
She was about to go. Only a "feeling", a moving feeling.

Then, she allowed herself to move within the fog,
No longer resisting, she found that she could then
Manuever in the mists, blindly yes, but more sure
Of her way within the fog than in fighting it.
So, she drifted in the fog and allowed "IT" to guide her.

In her surrender, she found that she seemed to be "floating",
But she was not within the waters, so her "floating"
Was more of a mindset than in a physical sense.
Floating then, she allowed herself to let go of the Rock
Upon the River Bank and just allowed herself to flow...

With the River of Life...

And Flow she did. Round and round another bend
Did she find herself. It was getting easier to just trust
The River. She had given up all visions of what she had
Hoped to find. She was now just allowing herself to
Become one with the being of the River.

And then it was that The River began to speak to her
Directly, did she hear! "There are not many rivers that
Can carry The Big Elephant to which she is destined to go."
I, being The River, now speak to you to say, I am honored
To be your medium in which to place you where you go.

In that instant, The Big Elephant and The River became One
In their Union of Purpose to proceed. Simple then, it became.
The Big Elephant softened in her stature as did The River in its flow.
Together they matched each other's energy in motion and then
Became One in their beings...simply flowing.

It was in this flowing that one lost themselves in the other
And there suddenly was no destination to go, to find.
In that moment, The River ceased to flow and The Big Elephant
Ceased to stand. There was no longer a destinction between them.
For in there becoming ONE, they immediately created a "New".

Now the "New" sprang forth in a dimension of its own.
Fresh and clean with its energetic being, dancing all about.
The Big Elephant and The River then became The New.
The New then directed the flow of The River to join with
The Walk of The Big Elephant in a manner of complete balance.

The Big Elephant and The River melted into The New....
It was then that The New began to sing in its vibration of Unities
A Triology of melodies to be played out over and over again.
It was then, when Time stood still and Listened.
That the Listening came forth to deliver.

The Big Elephant awoke amidst a pouring Rain
Lightening striking, Thunder answering
Ripples of Energy washing over her
She mellowed into the Blend.

There was something about a Storm
That she truly loved, something akin
To her own heart, a soft fierceness
That guided her through her journey.

In the midst of Fury was revealed
The true steel of the heart
Either run and hide
Or walk boldly into the Wind.

And in her walking boldly did she find
The Courage that she had so often
Counted on to join her in in these times
An old friend she held close to her heart.

Courage accommpanied her then on this night
As they stood together to test the Wind
The Big Elephant knew that it was best
To hold her ground yet sway with the Wind.

And in her doing so, the Wind ceased interest
And went swiftly on its way.
She turned to Courage and gave a soft embrace
As they both felt renewed once again.

Then they both went skipping off together singing
We did it again, we did it again...
Hahahahha what a beautiful scenerio
The Listening and The Blend.

Love, Deb

refrain from saying what 'they' do not think."

I suppose it is all a matter of perspective of what we "choose" to perceive and therefore how we "choose" to "feel". I personnally "choose" to feel good in every day of my being. Therefore, today is a new opportunity for me to recreate my world in any manner in which I "choose". And no matter what "my" circumstance" I will be smiling in my well-being. And that is what works for me. And I would venture to say that "The Big Elephant" would agree with that.

Blessings to all who will accept the blessings,
Love, Deb

The Big Elephant looked up at the night sky
She was enveloped in a vast array of stars
Seeking one another in the magnitude of the
Expression of the night.

Something significant had occurred that day
In that she had been joined by the presence
Of her dearest of friends
Making the union complete.

Now, they could begin their "Union of Purpose".
She never realized it until then
That they certainly had something to complete
Within their unspoken agreement.

Just the act of conversion seemed to express
A sense of completion in a sense that
All the tenticals had been drawn together
To preform their greatest lullaby.

And so, the music began....

The Voices
The Big Elephant
by Deb Abbott

The Voices came then, in an orchestra
Of overwhelming advantage
Expressions of multitudes, all at once
And yet it showed itself as a beautiful


And as the melody played,
So did the chimes within
Come to an accordance
That delivered itself, softly.

And softly did the message reveal itself
The words waved themselves over the tones
And it was heard then, "All there really is is Love",
That is the Keeper.

Love is the constant, the gel, the glue
That holds all together.
The Big Elephant awoke from her dream
A dream that she had dreamt many many times.

Then she asked herself, "What is Love?"

The Big Elephant saw in her dreams
All the Matriarchs heads bowed and pushing forward
Together, they were able to move a mountain
In order to obtain the healing of a village.

That was her dream....

When she awoke, she knew something magnificent
Had occurred and she wanted to know more
But the more she probed, the less she learned
It was when she stopped that the message came to her.

Some things are not meant to be mentioned beyond their doing
Some things are simply meant to be in the flow of all that is
For when we attempt to know them, we damage them in some way
And they are not able to be in the simplicity that they were made.

So, it is that we must simply accept sometimes, the flow of being
And to "allow" it to simply be. And in the doing so, so do we allow
The full and complete healing of the situation that is being considered
And in the doing so, a whole new realm opens up to be involved in

This new awakening.....

Love, Deb

Oh, I so love this! How very wise, BE !

I am reminded of guidance received several years ago from
a good friend ... wanting to know all that will happen
(e.g. predictions), is not the ideal simply because once known,
we begin to change our energy (or vibration about it) which
inevitably changes the outcome ... which is why many predictions
never come to pass!

The thought also occurs to me that we are creating in every
moment, including not necessarily specifically, just by going with
the flow of our day. The above writing reminds me of this .. that
its not necessary to analyze everything .. just let it be, let it flow
to the next moment, which I kind of suspect presents us with more
open-ended choices, as opposed to narrowing our focus on something
which can limit choices presented.

Just my thoughts for now :)

The Big Elephant found herself relaxing
Beneath the branches of the Mother Baobab Tree.
It was always comforting for her to be in union
With her old friend, so she relished in the moment.

She felt the "union of accord" between the two
And delighted in a "new" feeling of something to come.
What was this new energy, she asked herself?
Ah, it felt something long planned come to be.

Words tripped across her mind, dancing in a melody
And she was delighted in the reverie of the toneage rent.
She felt something new come to be and yet something
That had already been.

As she munched on the leaves that the Mother Baobab offered
She felt a familiar knowing yet something beyond her reach.
However, she felt confident that it would all come to her
In a matter of TIME.

The Mother Baobab was silent in that time, waiting it seemed
For The Big Elephant to make her forward approach
On to that which she was focused
And that movement seemed to entail, Words,

...The Coming of the Words....

It was the wonder of the day
That took her tracing across the skies.
The Big Elephant gathered herself then
And purposed to find a way to express herself.

There were images and impressions upon her brain
That leaked themselves into her psyche
And yet she knew there was some sort of permission
That needed to be presented.

It was then that the one came forth to do so.
And taking it lightly, did the one evolve the beingness
Of The Big Elephant into another advantage of expression
That shattered all realms of knowing and opened up a new door.

And, so, the newness will be presented....

The Big Elephant stood in her own presence and wondered.
Wondered, what it was that she was supposed to receive in this day.
And, allowing herself to be open did she feel, totally ridiculous.
Then, she stopped judging herself.

It was then that she was able to connect with her inner knowing
And to move forward into her perceptions of being that would
Essentially bring her to where she was prompted to be
In this moment.

And then it was that she gave way to that which wished to
present itself.

Allow the flowing of energy to embrace
Allow the knowing to go with the flow
Allow oneself to be within the flow.

So, I suppose, the name of the day
Would be "Flow".

The night was still when The Big Elephant
Turned her attention to the Northern Star
And she wondered how long it had been
Since she had been there.

She remembered then her life experience
In that time of the teachings.
She felt a warmth in her heart in the
Connecting once again from whence she came.

She smiled softly at the knowings that she
Felt in her heart and delighted in the experiences
That she had chosen. She looked forward even more
To the extension that she had so agreed upon.

But it was this night that it all seemed to come together
The whole pattern of her life experience upon this plane
Now, all the facets were coming together
And she felt that she was coming into the blessing.

What is it to Bless everyday?
What sort of energy does that emit?
From that thought and intention, what comes about?
What is blessed gives the blessing in return.

On this day, The Big Elephant took a deep breath and knew
That she had come full circle in her knowings and now she was
Experiencing the blessings of her blessings,
It was then that she could fully rest.

And the perfect delight of resting
Came in the venue of her greatest


What delighted her most was
Being witness to the manifestation

...Of her desires

And in her resting came forth
The creation of that which she intended

...To be perceived

She noted then, how fully connected
She was with herself

...And ventured forth

This moment rendered The Big Elephant
A Point of Connection with the All That Is

...Co-creation evolving

The spin was in place to continue
The vortex swirling in a reverie

...The union complete

The Big Elephant took a deep breath then
And knew that she had ascended

...To a different level of understanding

Sometimes the marching through the fledglings are cumbersome
One just has to get over it and go on. And then there is the principle
Of what is beyond that questions. Taking a deep breath then do we delve
Into the next adventure of the knowings, therefore let us bring them forth.

The Big Elephant sat silent for a moment.
She had just gone through a rigorous disruption of her being
Which disallowed her to function in her day to day meanderings.
She held a heavy sigh then to begin again.

And then it was that she imagined herself at the top of the world.
Looking over all and observing, taking in all that she was perceiving.
She knew then that she was identifying this world's next changing.
And in some way that would affect her entourage as well.

It was then, that she took the next step into her "Being"!
And it was as if there was a plethora of grandeur of being
That traced itself across the beginnings of time
Embracing the succulence of its being.

And relishing then in the total peace of rendering...

The Big Elephant was smiling as she brought herself into this day.
There was something particular on her mind that she wished to find.
And she sought to do that in her renderings of her thoughts in a way
That would draw all together in a definition of a conscious awakening.

Having witnessed from above a great deal of stress and strife
Among the nations that she oversaw, she then paused to identify.
That the particulars were no longer hidden but brought to the light of day.
In this, she gloried for that was a big step in the unveiling of the truth.

She watched as the turmoil seemed to escalate within every day.
And yet she knew this was exactly what was needed to be revealed.
So, that the cleansing could begin to take place.
And a new beginning would commence to fill the space.

So, one by one, she watched as the targets came to the surface.
And she found that, with each one, another was yet to be revealed.
It was like a chain reaction, one going down and then another.
Until all the negative was exposed and done with.

And then she drew in a deep breath.
It was time to rebuild again.
Happy was she to be within this time.
Knowing that her purpose was to see it complete.

Love you,

It was a soft gentle rain today that
The Big Elephant found herself wondering in.
She allowed her breath to leave her with a
Gentle sigh of relief and of appreciation.

She felt the anticipation in the air of things to come
And the exhilaration of the coming
She nodded her head in delight
And awaited it's descent.

The Big Elephant took measured steps in her proceedings.
Cognitive she was of the possibilities, yet knowing.
She walked stealthy forward, bearing her own fruit
But watching closely as to the response from without her.

It was then that she noticed that there was one from afar
That had come to greet her in a most unusual way.
Immediately there was a dialect that described a joining.
A joining of efforts in which to preside in a more productive way.

The Big Elephant lifted her head and trumpeted in an effort
To bring forth the energies to combine and filter forward.
And in that moment did The Big Elephant find
The meeting of herself come forward.

It is in the eyes that one's knowing is made complete.
And so it was with The Big Elephant on this day.
Did she see within her knowing, another that had come
To assist her along her way.

It was a grand reunion of souls enveloped in the love of one.
Wrapping ones energy around another and twirling
Around and around they become, one with another
In a complete experience of total wonder.

It is in WONDER that our total existence is expressed
In it's most unique form.

Love, Deb

The Sun shone brightly upon the plane.
All was lit with the brilliance of the Sun.
The Big Elephant then walked into the Sun...

It was then that she knew something had
Come upon her that she was not familiar.
She walked slowly to take hold of that.

She staid herself, held herself, stoking
Her knowing to accommodate her current now.
And then she embraced the moment.

It is the principle of the peace that resides within
That rendered itself forward to embrace the
Very essence of the being.

The Big Elephant positioned her thoughts on the Universe.
And the Universe then came to her in full force.
The Big Elephant then asked, "What is The Universe?"
And then The Universe did answer.

I, the Universe, am the very function that you participate in each day
I am the energy that meets you, breathes you and suffices you in each day,
I am that in which you dwell, that in which you seek to know your being,
That in which you take your every breath and tend to your every care.

I am YOU! I am YOU in the full essence of the Love in which you yourself
Created yourself into being and have thrust yourself into this union of this life's knowings.

I, the Universe, am the expression of YOU!
