Mindfulness is the new word for “stop and smell the roses.”  The lesson, however, is age-old.  As we race through life on auto-pilot, void of mindfulness, we are missing the rich sensory experiences that make up our present-time awareness. Tugging on the collar, her greyhound is gently nudging the skater in the direction of mindfulness; encouraging her to stop and see what she is missing.   And what better allegory for racing through life than a greyhound, a dog bred for its speed and agility.

 

The model for this beautiful canine was newly retired from a life of racing. She was an aging female greyhound who had found a new purpose after being adopted by her human.  She was calm and patient, while allowing an entire group of sculptors to palpate and measure her.  Sitting quietly in front of a class, she would occasionally move around the room to engage each sculptor.  Capturing the essence of her mindful wisdom was a lesson that far exceeded learning her measurements.  I believe that dogs and many animals are closer to the Source and have much to teach us.
