    Try having happy thoughts involving stewardesses, Rat.

    TM is dangerous stuff. One older fellow I know got into that in the 1960s and he quit when he got possessed. Scared the snot out of him. To make a long story short, he got Saved and eventually became a pastor.

    Possessed ? … Saved ? … Sounds like the weed talking, to me.

    Maybe that’s the whole point of this cartoon! A guy practices Transcendental Mediation, and from the left — the sinister direction — comes Baphomet!

    Or maybe that’s reading too much into a one-off cartoon strip about talking animals.

    I think you mean his home was re-possessed.

    Shh. Nabby lives in his very own dream world. Just back slowly away and stay out of his reach until the nice men in the white coats come to collect him.

    I knew a guy in the ‘70s who was a huge pot-head, heavy drinker, etc. Not at peace with himself. Then he got into T M in a really big way. Went to MIU in Fairfield, Iowa. Quit all substances. Last time I saw him in the late 80’s or early 90’s, he looked about 15 or 20 years younger than he had before he started meditating, and he achieved inner peace. Today you might suspect Botox to explain his appearance changes, but this happened before that was available.

    Let’s be clear that, regardless of what You think about TM, Rat did not say he was practicing transcendental meditation. There are many forms of it including ancient Christian forms going back to the desert fathers of the fourth century. I frankly don’t care what form of meditation Rat practices because he’s a comic strip character.

    The mind has a lot more power than most of us think it does, how do we think computers and smart phones came into being ?

    I meditate on the bus going to work every morning. It involves closing my eyes a thinking about my workday, TV, the NFL and hoping that crazy people(Nabu-ish) will think that I’m asleep or crazier than them and leave me be. I’m certain that Nabu doesn’t take the bus though. Angel’s probably fly him in.

    I think we leave the current line of comments and return to Mr Sherlock Watson’s idea about “having happy thoughts involving stewardesses!” Am I the only one here that ever read Penthouse Letters? “I always thought these letters were fake until the day I boarded Flight 113 out of Tulsa……”

    airlines are cramming us in as sardines.

    The idea is to relax and get away from worldly concerns, Rat, not to get all worked up in feverish fantasies of retribution against boorish fliers….
