Molly...

Today, I woke up feeling physically ‘crappy’, and the mood is still persisting…,
That’s correct, it is just a mood…,
And, because, I normally feel great physically, I start panicking when this ‘crappiness’ grips me, and I start thinking ‘wonky’…,
I’m starting to come out of it just a tad, but not by much, mind you, maybe 5% or so, so, let’s take what I say with a huge pinch of salt,
I may renege on some of it tomorrow, or next year, or whatever…


Anyways, it is late afternoon, and I begin reading one of my favourite spiritual books in the hopes that I may get some ‘enlightenment’,
I was lucky, I hit upon a fantastic stretch in the book, and my noggin starts workin’,
I get up to get a drink of water from the kitchen, and there was Molly, the beloved’s mutt,
It is an uncharacteristically cold and rainy winter’s day in Limassol, today,
As I’m sipping the water, I look down at Molly,
And I thinks to myself:
“God, why would anyone choose to incarnate as this mutt,
When we have so many other endless choices,
For that matter, why did I choose to incarnate as me, when I coulda’ have appeared as Sean Connery or something…”,
Although who knows, I may have dome Sean Connery in some distant past,[the equivalent thereof, anyway…, lol…, or ‘future’],
My train of thought gravitates back to Molly,
Lowly hound, serving the beloved…,
Aaahhh, that’s a clue,
Molly is ‘serving’ the beloved, and when I think of the utter pleasure the beloved gets from Molly,
I start to thinks further,
I thinks of the incredible love she has for Molly,
What constant companionship Molly provides,
What joy she gives to the beloved as she accepts a dog biscuit from her…,


“My god…,”, me thinks, I could not give such unselfish love by incarnating as the ‘lowly’ Molly in a million years of trying,
I have played nurse to a friend or two and nearly ended up jumping off the proverbial 13th floor…,
So I bend down and look long and deep into Molly’s eyes,
And I swear, I thought I caught a glimpse of the utter divinity in Molly, and it choked me up and I wanted to weep uncontrollably,
But, my damn proprietary stopped me, I will weep when I’m alone,
Not sorrowful tears, mind you, but tears of incredible and ineffable joy,
Tears of liberation from my enigmatic existence…,
As I realized intensely that Molly was living an extraordinarily complex life thru serving the beloved,
And I was humbled, and I was grateful to Molly, ‘the lowly mutt’ for the cosmic lesson she taught me today…

Hi, Earlgreytea,
Yes, the lessons are all around and the teachers amazing! Thank you for sharing Molly's wisdom of unconditional love. She does give it, even without the dog biscuit, right?

The last lady is right, Molly does not judge and gives unconditional love. What I see in my canines' eyes is pure goodness, utter right mindedness. What I wish to aspire to, in effect; yet they manage this without mediating, constant reading, mantra chanting etc..etc...etc..
Animals are living in second density consciousness and pets tend to be given a fast forward to third, due to attachment. I wish they did not have to experience third as I think it is the hardest of all; it's what we are experiencing. I wish they could stay as they are, yet it is their soul/their choice.
I find it very hard to believe my soul is more evolved then theirs as they always show moral betterment compared to me. Also, they are able to live in the now. They humble me.
Thankyou for a beautiful tribute to our canine colleagues, very touching.
With thanks, CJ,Penny, Millie xxx

you could feed the beloved with peeled grapes and test molly for traces of jealousy! grin just a thought wink
i'm wondering have you got over the crappy feeling? also i would think incarnating as a woodworm would be more unsatisfactory than a lovable mutt, dunno but i know little of the subject.
hope you are feeling better as well as more enlightened.. laugh
