As a lover of life, I’m also a lover of wisdom. Why should you care? It’s like living consciously with high levels of awareness, but on steroids. In doggie terms, it’s the difference between walking on a tight leash and/or without a leash. While one is restrictive and overpowering the other is liberating and empowering. Imagine that! Don’t you want to see what it’s like to unleash unlimited power to achieve both success and greatness?
My ‘mom’ thinks that we now live in extraordinary times that demand extraordinary solutions and visions. She is convinced that the answer to many of the problems experienced by humans can actually come from the most unexpected places – dogs! Why you ask?
In part, because as dogs we have unique qualities and extra senses that enable us to “see” and “hear” things beyond the surface level and know the difference between what’s real and important in life and what’s not, and in part because we live by a set of very uncomplicated rules which makes our lives, well, uncomplicated.
Before you think I’m here to replace Yoda, I wanna remind you that I’m just an ordinary little dog (well, not according to my ‘mom’ and my fans) with a big heart who really cares about the world and finds it very rewarding to inspire people to achieve extraordinary things with my fresh dog-inspired insights. So, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride…or shall we say, the long walk together.
Spending so much time with my human family, I’ve become a keen observant of life in the human world. But like Mr. Spock from Star Trek I sometimes struggle to figure out the logic behind the actions of some humans, which lead to so much needless unhappiness. Believe it or not, sometimes all we need to live life to its fullest is two things - clarity and simplicity.
Everyday I meet more and more people who are always racing against time in their quest to “get there,” only to discover that there is no “there” there. It’s true. Life is not a destination or a race; it’s simply a journey. And so, people often lose sight of what’s really important in life, especially the simple pleasures.
Because loving comes as natural to us dogs as breathing, we know that love has its own rewards. Therefore, we feel it’s the only goal worth pursuing. Think about it. What good does it do if you have all the toys in the world but no one to play with? Besides our lives come in a limited edition.
So, ask yourself this question: Are you working to live or living to work? The answer to this question will help you prioritize your goals in life.
Chew on this…
- Remember what’s really important in your pursuit for life, liberty and happiness.
- A “more is better” mind-set is overrated except when it comes to love and making a difference.
- Love and simple pleasures have their own rewards.
- Just be good and do good and the rest will surely follow!
Thanks again for visiting and may your pooch inspire you to become a force for good. OK, gotta run now. I have a world to save and still be cool for my fans.
Cutie, The Lion Dog
Remember to be the person your dog thinks you are. Make a difference!
“Dogs. Absolutely an unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog. . . . He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. . . . When all other friends desert, he remains." - George G Vest
