The Elephants Knew…

Elephants DrDyer
Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller, The Elephant Whisperer. He bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.
On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. 
He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons, and numerous elephants.
Two days after his passing, the 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 had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House.
Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only 
because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these 
elephants sensed about Lawrence’s passing, but also because of 
the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked 
in such an organized way: Walking slowly, for days, making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his 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!
But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who’d saved their lives – so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything.
Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home.

Some will say there is no God, try and tell that to the elephants…

I contemplate the mystique of this message and it brings me such bliss.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
This was a post by Dr Wayne Dyer in 2013 on his Facebook page. The world truly lost a dear man and a wonderful soul when he passed last month.

May your next adventure be all you wanted and more! RIP Dr Dyer…

  1. Elephants are seriously intelligent creatures. You see the way they get their young out of the water when they are stuck, how they all know where to go, the fact that they will hold each other. They are incredible animals. And they cry.

  2. I love this story – have heard it before, and we all need to hear it again and again. Did you read the latest Jodi Picoult novel? Leaving Time. She researched a lot about elephants and wove them into her story. Fascinating.

    • I had the privilege of seeing him speak in San Francisco in 2010. He truly was a very special and remarkable person who brought many people happiness and peace with his powerful words and discernment. I downloaded his last book “I can see clearly now” which he narrates in his own voice. He narrates ALL of his books. It made me cry to hear his voice. I will have to wait a while before I can listen to it again. Love that man so much!
      I highly recommend his movie (which you can watch for free) called “The Shift”!! It will change your life!!


  3. Thanks for sharing this, Courtney. Maybe in a millennia, when mankind has exhausted his resources, the elephant will become the next ruler of earth. The planet will be in good care if that’s the case.
