I'm just curious what people think about if and how animals and animal qualities might be incorporated into your various spiritual paths. Some spiritual traditions (such as Native American ones) talk about "totem animals" where a specific animal is considered to be essentially family. I know in some other cultural groups like some in South America they take it a step further and the whole magickal/spiritual life seems to revolve around a specific animal like the jaguar. In Norse tradition there is the "berserker" who is seen as a warrior who has strong bear or wolf qualities and ties. What do people think? Does anyone here have a particular animal that they have integrated in their spiritual life? And what about "furries" on the internet? Is this another expression of the whole totem animal idea?
