That’s why it is always pleased to see you, always wagging its tail and is full of joy.
We as humans can also choose this, it simply means that we have to learn to observe and witness our own thoughts without evaluation. This will allow the judgemental thoughts to dissolve as we have not given them energy or acted upon them.
We can then see ourselves and others with no filters, wag our tails and be like the dog, free from the judgements of our mind.
I read a lovely article today online about a boy and his dog.
It struck me as a dog owner, that Cookie, our dog, is always pleased to see you in the morning, her whole body wags, then as soon as you go out, she sits on the sofa by the window waiting for you to return. Even, if you are out for 10-15 minutes, she rushes to the door to greet you.
She is always happy, bounds everywhere, chases her ball almost to exhaustion, and loves lying next to for yet more attention.
She loves to play and she is never rough, always gentle and dog’s have amazing emotional intelligence, they really can sense your moods.
She never gets tired of attention and being talked to and when you are not feeling at your best she knows too.
Dogs are always happy, as I type this I can hear her bounding down the stairs with excitement about something, so perhaps we could learn from them and choose to be more dog.
