A dog is always cheerful, honest, lives in the moment and is living now. We can learn a lot from them check out the following life lessons they teach us in everyday life.
A dog does everything with enthusiasm. He eats, drinks, play and runs passionately. May temporarily get very excited when a cat comes near, but if he is tired, he lies down and takes a nap without feeling guilty.
Dogs love, no matter what their ‘masters’ are, look like if their young or old and in what mood you are.Their love is unconditionally.
A dog doesn’t live in the past and does not worry about the future. Actually, that’s exactly what example Mindfulness and Buddhism people are trying to learn: Live in the now something a dog already does by itself. Always happy and excited when someone gives him attention, always happy when you come home no matter what time it is. No blame, no bygones. Just lives in the moment.
A dog will let know exactly how he thinks of humans and other animals. He approaches them carefully and growls or barks if he doesn’t like something or someone, and wags his tail and looks closer if he finds someone ok. Anyway, they express themselves what they think of someone. They never do differently or have a second agenda.
If you come across the literal or metaphorical boundaries of the dog he will guard his territory. He will let you know if you go too far and will bark and will send you back to your place.
Before a dog begins to move in the morning, he stretches. Even if you do not have a dog then you most probably have noticed this motion somewhere. They stretch their legs forward and stretch their spine completely before they move. Not a bad idea to take some time in the morning to warm up and to stretch before exercise.
