Proof and Buddhism...From An Ostrich?

The animals told me a year ago that doubters - even haters- would speak out against We Walk Beside You. For those people who have had their belief systems tweaked, a natural "she made this all up in her head" is one of the kinder responses I've heard.

So, when an ostrich recently came through to share some insights about his world, I was all too happy to turn to Google as a fact checker for whatever I could.

Ostrich: "We go back to the time of Cleopatra. We were highly prized by royalty."

PROOF: "Ancient Egyptians greatly valued this bird for its feathers and eggs, thus association of new life and or rebirth with the ostrich egg has been verified by numerous archaeological finds. Their amulets were considered having power conferred upon the dead and such amulets were depictions of two ostrich plumes supposed to fly away in the wind, bearing deceased soul, where the pair of plumes used as a vehicle for the soul of the deceased." -

Ostrich: "The head in the sand thing is another human myth."

PROOF: Ostrich DO NOT bury its head in the sands as many people believe. It only appears so especially when it cannot run away from potential danger, it always flops to the ground and lies still. The color of its heads camouflages with the sand.

Ostrich: "People know nothing about us. Ours is a unique society. Independence is very important to us. We don't run in packs. We are, in reality, very flexible - for example: about where we live, what we eat and who fertilizes our eggs. And we move around a lot.

PROOF: There are many types of habitat that the Ostrich will live in. They do prefer the warmer climates though with lots of sand around them. However, they have been identified living in some colder regions in the wild as well.

PROOF: "Their diet consists mainly of roots, leaves, and seeds, but ostriches will eat whatever is available. Sometimes they consume insects, snakes, lizards, and rodents. They also swallow sand and pebbles which help them grind up their food in their gizzard, a specialized, muscular stomach.

PROOF: "Males, as well as females, sit on the eggs until they hatch, which can take 42 to 46 days."

PROOF: Ostriches usually spend the winter months alone or in pairs. Only 16% of ostrich sightings were of more than two birds.

Ostrich: We practice non-attachment. Some of you are just learning what we've always known.

Proof: well, you're going to have to rely on your inner Encyclopedia for this one!
