Bet those standing safely on a hill with the elephants felt (briefly) lucky (at least until reality sunk in). It isn’t so hard to understand why keeping Elephants close to your home, and befriending them became associated with Blessings. These big fellers KNOW stuff…
HOW ON EARTH/IN HEAVEN DO ANIMALS KNOW?
Plenty of mechanisms are being suggested to explain how all manner of animals perform incredible feats, demonstrate insight and awareness that ought to move us to humility. Finding their way across land, oceans and skies, detecting precursors to earthquakes/tsunamis, and above all communicating to us they too are living persons with emotion/souls. For this topic I’ll stick with cats, dogs and elephants, but don’t hesitate to extrapolate to all living things. I predict there will be no end to the miracles you will discover.
It makes a hell of a lot of sense to study animals, to learn from them, and even to befriend them…as some lucky Khao Lak mahouts found out, it can save your life.
Let’s be done with these angelic elephants first. They have the lowdown on Tsunamis due to maintaining a collective memory of infrasound, developed over a thousand generations, many of which lived through great waves and floods by recognizing the exact seismic signature
of an approaching killer tsunami, and without hesitation heading for higher ground.
Lost pets performing impossible homing feats, like Shih-Tsu ‘Prince’, are able to do so, reuniting with their beloved master/human family, because unlike humans they never lost their connection with the Spirit World
and the Astral Plane
. Actually, we too travel many weird worlds, spirit worlds as we sleep and dream, as well as leave our body to go ‘places’, however, full awareness of this has become repressed in modern cultures. Dogs will be…well..dogs, and simply do what their nature allows them. They live in more than one realm at the same time, will occasionally see dead people (…naturally…!!), hop universes now and then, as well as rise out of their sleeping form to meet other doggies, and their human friends in spirit form on the astral plane. Homing in on the spirit of their master on the Astral, they glimpse wherever he/she has a home on good’ole Earth. I believe that’s how they do it, how they find their way across immense distance and time.
