In the moment

by Marita

Irrational as it seems, for a fleeting moment I’m actually jealous of my dogs!  But what wouldn’t I give to lead the carefree life of something that lives so blatantly in the moment.

Have you ever noticed your dogs lying awake, seemingly worrying about how they could possibly manage to achieve all the tasks they had set themselves the day before? But perhaps we could learn a lesson from our pets.

They are completely engaged in the present , and that makes it all the more pleasurable.

Next time I see my dogs lounging around, lazing the day away, I’m going to look at them and remember that I too can enjoy that contentment!

    Ja! Cats, too!

    They are all Guardians of Being, as Eckhart Tolle calls them.
