The Most Mindful Ones
Dogs are mindful. Their minds are not full.
“Take a look at the image at the top of this post. Look at what is in the manâ€™s mind. Then look at what is in the dogâ€™s mind. The manâ€™s is cluttered and full of his worries, wants, and concerns. The dogâ€™s mind is focused on exactly what is in front of him/her. The dog is no where else. The dog is fully present. The dog is taking in the sight, scents, and experience of being right there, in that field with his/her person. Animals have the conscious ability to be fully focused, and fully present. And they practice this at every opportunity. Itâ€™s truly extraordinary. And we can learn from their practice and habit of being mindful.”
