You will never hear a dog talk about another dog behind their back. Likewise, you won't hear a dog put another dog down because they don't have a fancy collar. You will never hear a dog lie about another dog, or attempt to undermine them, or dig a hole and try to shove another dog into it! While dogs may fuss, and growl and even get their hackles up, it is all very direct and upfront, there is nothing sneaky or underhanded about it.
Humans on the other hand do talk about each other, do put each other down, will sometimes lie, and will even try to push another human in a hole, metaphorically speaking. They can behave in underhanded and sneaky ways, and it all results in them feeling badly about themselves. Something a dog also never does!
What is the point dear humans about putting each other down? What difference does it make what side of the tracks any of us come from, or what level of education we were lucky enough to receive? What is the end result of unhappy behavior but more unhappiness? Let us learn from our beloved furry teachers, that while we may not all get along, we can still respect one another.
Let us realize that the greatest gift we can give to one another is the willingness to simply allow us all to be who we are. Just like dogs who are blessedly free of judging others and naturally just coexist with life and accept life for what it is, the simplicity of authenticity, integrity and compassion can be the cornerstones of how we live our lives and interact with one another. Odds are high that if we allow ourselves to keep it simple and keep it real, we may find ourselves a whole lot happier. Or. . . we can find ourselves at the end of a very long game of operator, (Bark. . . pass it on) and in the midst of one misunderstanding after another. It's a choice.
Peace, Love & Wugs
