compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion
In the case of most animals the territorial instinct is confined to the physical environment whereas in humans this instinct extends to the abstract in that, in the moul, the “mental territory” of the ‘I’ exists. Hence, we find feelings to do with ‘invasion of my space’ – that is, feelings of possession or attachment.
This is another example of an animal instinct manifesting as an aspect of the moul; an acquisition of the Spirit when it “entered” the physical world.
In essence, Spirit is without attachments and therefore without this animal instinct.
