What can a dog of 16 years teach you….
This post is dedicated to the love that he gave us… He was one of my greatest spiritual teachers…
I love you Rocky, you are deeply embedded in my soul! Thank you for showing me the path to enlightenment!

When you forgive you remember, or you forget the situation?
True forgiveness is not the remembrance of or forgetting of what was.. This replaying of any kind is a hiccup of pain in any case. If you now alter your reactions because of something that happened, you are no more forgiving what happen, then you are truly embracing the pain. Forgiveness in truth is the end of any and all suffering of what happened. You let go and give in to what the pain is and allow it to be placing a compassionate gentle unconditional love in the pain itself. You even make a choice to not have that impact your decisions to give love freely.
Example.. My 16 year old dog Rocky, and our son of 5 accidentally stepped on his paw.. He yelped loudly.. and then gave unconditional love to the 5 year old as though nothing ever happened. A dog is always showing you this way of unconditional love and forgiveness. We become trapped in a thought pattern of what no longer is.. This is why we repeat the same behaviors and never show more unconditional love nor get the concept of what forgiveness is in truth..
In some cases we don’t even see the choice.
Even knowing that this is the truth to forgiveness something in you as an identity feels threatened to ever allow this to be your way of forgiving. Do you see how one way gives you a longer existence than the other? What you resist persist! What you surrender to, opens the door to a love so deep it goes beyond time. It gives you the answer to time, by removing it and allowing your truth in radiant being to emerge. Not because you can forgive but you are forgiveness!
What can one do to stop feeling lonely?
First realize the word lonely is a thought process… It usually begins with sentences such as this… Why can’t… how come… I am.. most importantly know that “I am” is never lonely, only the thoughts about being lonely infect “I am”.. I am is a role of ego that says I am not worthy, or no attention is given, or I lack something that will make me more for someone to be with me.
You then will realize that you are this energy as you gravitate to it. The power of the word itself is this energy.
This energy is learned as we are infants into becoming toddlers. We cried when this happened and someone came and embraced us or they didn’t. Either way we placed a lie in this place called lonely… To cry out in this someone held us, when they didn’t come this energy felt uncomfortable more and caused a great feeling of grief in suffering. This abandonment is a form of thinking it is not a form of energy as in connection such as when we were finally held.
As you got older in this you either had more moments such as this, or less moments such as this. Either way is uncomfortable!
Unless or until you realize you are not lonely and embrace yourself in these times you will experience this as a hindrance. You will emit this energy in thought, and so make yourself suffer.
Suffering as placed here is a mental capacity which emits pain in small doses to never remove it. It is food for the ego.. not for the soul.. The soul can’t digest this, and will not elect this as a means to absorb inside of the love you always are.
One has a truth to it the other is the lie… The lie is in the word lonely.
Love Overboard Not Emitting Love Yourself.
