Animals are Gods
    #1118825 - 12/07/02 12:46 AM (14 years, 6 days ago)

I realized that my dogs are Gods.

Dig.........

Animals, let's take dogs for instance, are completely enlightened. They just always use as much of their brain as possible.

Humans have a lot more to work with, but we don't know what to do with it.

I think buddhism says that all animals have the potential for enlightenment, but that it's much more difficult for a dog to achieve it than say..a human. Humans have a level of consciousness that allows us to achieve a whole lot (in terms of enlightenment) in just one lifetime...that's why we should make the most of it, because if we don't the chances are we won't be born human next time around.

If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills,
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you time,
If you can overlook when people take things out on you when,
through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can do all these things..........


























Then you are probably the family dog.

However, at least most people I know don't try to hump your leg or take a dump in your living room if they are upset with you.

Learyfan: Wouldn't the real Leary say that a dog can't be enlightened, because it's brain is limited to the first two circuits?

I forgot to mention that is a cool name. What breed is she?

When I was 4 years old I was given a Collie pup by my parents. His name was Pat. He was the most loyal and faithful friend I ever had. When I was 18 he died and I buried him in the back yard. The grief overwhelmed me to the point that I haven't had a dog since. I can't. I guess that makes me a one-dog-guy. I'm not unhappy about that but I miss him. That was 30 years ago this coming April 13th.

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
