Power o Now (Tolle) - Animals don't need Therapy
    #2207820 - 12/29/03 03:51 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Tolle and some other New Age Gurus mention this
a lot... "Animals don't need Therapy".
I propose the following...
Animals don't need Meditation either...
All this talk about how animals are more at peace
and happier than humans are, I mean how do we know ?

This is not my fault. It's lucid's fault. This whole thing should have been in OTD, anyways.

Here's how you make your cat meditate:

true, but I think Tolle uses the disclaimer that
Animals in the wild don't need Therapy.
and I respond
Animals in the wild don't need Meditation either

There's this little thing inside me that wants me to say, "Aren't you guys sort of stating the obvious???" But I won't do it, nosirree.

:grin:
actually, I was trying to make the point... that all
this New-Age talk about stating how animals are not "nuerotic"
is complete speculation. How do we know animals are not
neurotic ? How do we know they are these wonderfully
happy beings ? e.g. just cause a dog is wagging his tail
is no indication of inner peace... he might be having a
panic attack for all I know :smirk:

well, it appears that u've "defined" their behavior as meditation.
That's like defining the behavior of a 2 year old as meditation.

I was doing this really deep OMMMM to the baby boy once, he seemed to like it.

Believe me, I don't consider what this two year old, hyperactive girl does as meditation... its like the opposite. hehe
Peace.

yea, I'm tired of people defining things and then acting
like it's "proof" (no offense to u Positronius, but a lot
of people do this). I see it all the time
"God exists because he sez so"
"you're happy, you just don't know it"
"you're perfect, you just don't know it"
etc etc...

so, you think when a sloth sits and stares into outerspace he is thinking about his marriage problems?

how do you define meditation, maybe thats your problem.
