Betty White was interviewed by Pierce Morgan this week on CNN.  At 90 (!) she stars in “Hot In Cleveland,” “Off Their Rockers,” recently released a new book, and continues to be an active animal advocate.

She is clear, focused, purposeful, involved, healthy, and still looks good–without cosmetic surgery!

When asked by Morgan what keeps her going, while so many others seem to view 65-70 as the self-perceived cut-off point where achievements and life-immersion is concerned, she replied that she pays little attention to numerical age and focuses, instead, on ideas, aspirations, “what’s next,” and continuing to do what she loves to do.

But, she also spoke about love, gratitude, service, creativity, and a strong connection to the natural world–especially the animal kingdom–while reflecting on her life.  When asked to choose one experience– aside from being with her beloved, now deceased husband–to relive, if such a gift were possible, she chose a day spent alone with and in close-proximity to Coco, the hand-signing gorilla.

I have no idea what Ms. White’s spiritual sensibilities or religious affiliations are.  And, I’m not a “psychic;” but, talk about Light! It radiates from this woman with more strength and vibrancy than one would expect from a 20 year old.

This same week I have been re-reading Abd-Ru-Shin’s, In The Light of Truth: The Grail Message (Bernhardt, 1971), and a few passages from this work jumped out at me as I watched and listened to her:

“Everything in Creation is movement.  Brought into being strictly according to Law by the pressure of Light… The greater the distance from the Light, the slower and more sluggish becomes the movement… The expression “Light” in this connection does not, of course, refer to the light of some planet, but to the Primordial Light, which is Life itself, therefore God!” (p. 52)

This great Teacher also reminds us that the Light of God animates and radiates through every aspect of Creation–people, animals, flowers, trees, “in every fiber of a leaf bursting its sheath to come to the light,” and is intensified by “good volition.”

Clearly, we don’t have to limit our search for examples of Light, Love, and the highest expression of God-goodness to churches, monasteries, and self-proclaimed spiritual teachers.  We just need to hone our inner vision and strive to remain on the same vibratory “frequency” as the light-bearers among us. And these can be found in every activity, vocation, guise, and personality type imaginable.

    The title of my April/May column, "Perspectives," in Pet Tails Magazine is: "The Cat Lady." It tells the story of a woman in Pittsburgh who devoted her retirement years to rescuing the most hopeless, hapless cats from a local shelter and the interesting, elegant lifestyle she and seven of these lucky kitties lived before her recent death.

    NOTE TO ANIMAL LOVERS: All Pet Tails' articles can be read on-line at as soon as removed from news stands and replaced with current month's issue. In this case, after June 1st.
