Cats and dogs are great teachers… X

Not too long ago I was feeding 15 cats a night on my verandah in the lava fields of South West Hawaii. I had two caretakers who suddenly left and I was left with the dilemma of security at the end of the world in the middle of the night…… So I got a puppy…. A “throw away,” under a tree at the local market. I called him Zohan.

He has taught me a great deal about fear and illusion. He appears fearsome and is in fact a bumbling, clutz, teenage boy…. Who immediately responds to the fear in others.

The cats have become three… Since these are the three fearless animals willing to love and share the space with the dog! These ones ….they turn out to get the most treats, the most affection and the most opportunities for love…  I have decided to remember this and practice everyday being fearless in the face of the big fearsome looking “dogs” in my path to success….. We are all puppies at heart!!! Go out and love your way to success through fearless acceptance of everyone around you…. We are after all…. All made from the same breath of God!

    I so love this Shankari….very appropriate right now as I look after a wonderful and wise dog. If I think that I can hide my emotions he is showing me that this is so not true. My faithful friend senses everything that is going on with me. For he is totally present in the moment with his environment. And he helps me to acknowledge that even the ‘down’ times are part of the journey ‘home’….for truly Everything is energy in transformation. The importance is to move the energy.
    Cats and Dogs ARE great teachers!

    Enjoying connecting with you again after all this while :)
    Happy Hawaian Solstice Greetings to you… Ankya
