Animals teach us how to be human, the way they give us their total body feedback. They ARE "biofeedback". . .because being present is what is nescessary to be with them and fully enter their world. And if we are present with them, they will offer their presence with us, which is the most electric heart opening gift. I love this instruction, as I go in and out of presence, which is nescessary for love. I know when I am "on", but I don't always know when I am not. . . The way you have languaged the process of staying out of the traps of overthinking and quieting feeling, makes way for the practice of love itself. This is far more than just relating to animals effectively, it is the art of being a fully embodied human being made in the image of God, able to give and receive love and healing with other people as well.
