Your dog

‘Cookie’ by Philip Dodson

Your dog has no opinions of itself or you.

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.

Rising above

Within the circle lies compliance, following the crowd, not wanting to offend, perfectionism to avoid judgement, comfort that is uncomfortable, not speaking out, fear of being wrong, fear of almost everything outside the circle.

The only way to change anything is to rise above, to free ourselves from the circle, to actually be able to see the circle for what it is. We have to embrace the wilderness, we have to be brave enough to be different, we have to be prepared to leave the perceived safety of the circle.

We can not escape if we do not see we are within the circle.

Rise, lead, inspire, change and be free.
