The Secret Wisdom of Animals
Dr. C: While meditating in a beautiful park in California, I’ve sometimes noticed squirrels approaching me and tapping me on the back or on the tips of my feet. Interestingly, they began to approach with peanuts in their mouths. They would touch the peanut to my bike or my feet.
I never feed the squirrels. On one occasion, a squirrel jumped up on my front tire. I politely asked him to leave, but he came back and wanted to touch my bike frame and water bottle. I asked him to leave again.
