this is just some neat stuff to ponder about...

So I was out enjoying a horseback-ride in the forest today, and the horse i was riding seemed to be pretty scared of its environment. It was constantly on the lookout and flipping out for stupid reasons. Soon enough I realized that it was a bit afraid of the sound the wind was making in the trees, and the branches that were moving, and this got myself wondering; if an animal, with its very limited perception of reality, was able to have a notion of God, how would God seem to it?

I'd say that God would seem like an ever-lasting presence that is continuously around the animal. cuz think about it, a horse has no idea that the wind they are hearing can also be heard a mile away from it, so to animals it seems like the forces (God) that make the branches sing and move only take effect when they approach. To them its like if God was always following them around.

Its easier to understand where the fear of God in past human history(and even now) could have come from when you look at it this way. The presence of God around you can be a bit discomforting.

This is why i think that the realisation of the Oneness of the universe, of its unity, is critical on the path of the spiritual journey. You have to stop separating yourself from the notion of God (or whatever), because there is usually the idea in one's mind that God is other than oneself, that is separate from the self.

I dont know if horses possess that kind of thinking ability. I know with my horse, he smells a lotta shit, and hears a lotta stuff that I cant, and prolly thinks its a bear or a cougar, or somthing thats big and gonna eat it.

animals and god is idea great idea - full on conjecture comes into play as it is so hard to interview the clients.

I conject that the wind in trees really conjures up the sense of something larger which most people consider as deity, gaia or universe, why would it not apprehend this sound and consider it could be relevant to itself.

like when the tv people are talking about us stoned in our nests.
was the horse jacked on anything? ergotamine?
