OK... Mr.Nut has asked me to write this post to clarify something about squirrels. Mr.Nut is currently teaching a course called "Facebook Etiquette for Posting Comments". One of the topics covered is the use of labels when referring to squirrels. In this post we will consider the label "BEGGAR".
I have heard people toss around the word "little beggars" when they refer to the precious squirrels that show up, asking for food. I doubt that anyone really thinks about this rude accusation. Let me explain...
We humans are the ones that are the real beggars; we live amidst bounty and believe we don't have enough. We take on the belief that we have to earn every penny and work hard to live here on the planet. We were all brainwashed in this regard from the time we were children. So we grow up and cop an attitude that working hard is something to be proud of and we even take pride in working excessively to pay the bills and keep a roof over our heads. Humans are the ONLY species that pay to live on earth!
Now, reflect upon the brilliance of the little squirrels. They don't have this erroneous concept. They do not differentiate between work and play. Yet, they do indeed work hard... they plant trees that give us the oxygen to breathe and nuts to eat, and they take care of their young and teach them how to survive. Yes, they will come over and ask for some food when nuts are not in season; but they are far from "beggars". They are our teachers: they are here to wake us up to the Truth. Notice that they don't pay rent... they don't pay for food. Squirrels sit in the lap of the Divine!
Squirrels never left paradise!
They live the abundant life and if we weren't programmed from early on, we would know how to do that, too.
So it's high time we gave them the honor and the respect they deserve!
Perhaps instead of the word "beggar" we should be using the title "precious beings" or "beloved friends".
