Title: Spiritual Lessons From Our Dogs
Post by: olivet on Aug 10 2014 10:40:13 PM

Dogs are primarily instinctual, so they arenít obsessing over the past or worrying about the future. They, like all animals and unlike humans, have mastered the ability of living in the moment. Actually, they havenít mastered anything, itís just what theyíre naturally good at.
We donít refer to the average human as having mastered walking on two feet because itís just something that most of us do. Living in the moment is just something that dogs do.


In order to understand how our dogs live in the moment, itís worthwhile for us to learn how to do it, too. For humans, the process is called meditation, and it involves quieting those voices from our past and future that distract us from the present. It also helps if we exercise, which brings us more in touch with our bodies and instincts, no matter how we choose to do it: walking our dogs, jogging, yoga, dancing, etc.
By living in the moment, you will not only understand better how your dogs experience the world. You will also become a much calmer Pack Leader, and find that place of quiet balance that will naturally make your dogs want to follow you.
Stay calm, and stay present!
