People would be better if they were more like dogs, if dogs were our role models, our teachers, our spiritual leaders. I learn a lot from dogs, often when I'm not even trying. I'm lucky have had so many dogs in my life and they've all had something to teach if I was able to learn.
Sparky, I'm convinced, is a Zen master, with far more to teach than I'll be able to comprehend, but he never gives up on me.
|If you're not the lead dog, |
the view never changes.
|Look at the world through eyes without artifice.|
|Simple physical contact is the best|
way to show affection.
|Walk with purpose.|
|Smile when you're happy and |
don't worry about what you look like.
|Take advantage of the sunshine.|
|Give yourself over to pure joy.|
