I know what I mean in my mind, but if I try to explain it it may be obscured.
I guess what I mean is that sometimes animals can appear to have spiritual experiences, i.e going into trance-like states or have periods of meditation. I'm sure science can disprove all that as mumbo jumbo, but just wanted to know what you guys thought.
"The original heart/mind shines like pure, clear water with the sweetest taste. But if the heart is pure, is our practice over? No, we must not cling even to this purity. We must go beyond all duality, all concepts, all bad, all good, all pure, all impure. We must go beyond self and nonself, beyond birth and death. When we see with the eye of wisdom, we know that the true Buddha is timeless, unborn, unrelated to any body, any history, any image. Buddha is the ground of all being, the realization of the truth of the unmoving mind.” Ajahn Chah
