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.

It’s our journey

Life is something we do with others and they can often be the catalyst and inspiration for our own journey.

However, each one of us has a unique journey and it is ours to discover, good, bad and average. It is our choices, it is up to us to be the one to find our path, learn our lessons, and work things out for ourselves.

No matter what others tell us or advise us, with good intention most times, there is still no substitute for treading the path ourselves.

The key is always to try to walk down the path even when it’s hard and scary. But we can never learn until we take the leap of faith and take our journey.
