Introduction of book reads:
Live The Life Of Your Dreams Now
If you spend time with dogs you may very well discover a little secret that they have known since time immemorial. They know the secret to happiness and practise what they have discovered daily.
Dogs have been our constant companions for as long as we can remember. We need only look into our puppy dog’s eyes to glimpse true happiness. Dogs know instinctively that happiness exists right now. While we are busy planning and wishing for future happiness, and for our dreams to come true, dogs are working on being happy right now simply by living in the present moment. It is important to dream and work towards them, but it is also equally important to be conscious of every moment of your life right now. It is easy to get lost in thought and miss out on the incredible beauty that is right in front of your nose now. In fact, stop what you are doing right now, take a deep breath, exhale slowly and begin to get in tune with your body. Feel your clothing touching your skin. Feel your heart beating. Listen to the sounds around you right now. Rather than get lost in thought, immerse yourself in your senses.
Waking up and smelling the roses is about getting out of your mind and back into your body. Dogs have a keen sense of smell and maybe we too can learn to take great pleasure in being lost in our senses. So much so that when someone asks you how you are you could answer ‘sensational!’.
The nomadic Australian Aborigines’ constant and loyal companion was the dingo. Aborigines were hunter-gatherers, and moved from place to place, becoming acutely aware and in tune with their surroundings. They moved with the seasons and the availability of food and water, and had stories of how their land was created known as The Dreamtime. It wasn’t some time in the distant past but the here and now. The Dreamtime is about the continual process of creation and we too have the power to dream and create this very moment.
I think there was a time when we all used to know the secret of happiness. It was a time when humans sat around the campfire with their canine companions and listened and learned from their companion’s wisdom.
Doggie Dreaming is a guide to help you understand that The Dreamtime is here and now and happiness is available to you in this very moment. Think less, appreciate the little things in your life now, and spend time around dogs. Have you ever seen a dog when his master has come home? He isn’t worried about what is happening on the stock market or listening to gossip as he wags his tail. While you were lost in thought he was blissfully lost in living his dreams. The secret to the art of living and happiness is to see the magic in every moment for now has always been when and where we create the life of our dreams.
DID YOU KNOW?
When you purchase this book, you plant 2 trees in Madagascar. That’s right, for every book you purchase you are helping to make a dramatic impact in the lives of the beautiful wildlife and the people that call this magical island home. Madagascar is the fourth largest island on Earth and over 80% of it’s wildlife are found nowhere else, including all of the world’s lemurs, most of which are critically endangered. Approximately 95% of Madagascar’s forests have been destroyed and many of the people that live there are very poor. Planting trees restores the environment and helps protect the wildlife, but it also gives the people an income and allows them to put food on their plates and send their children to school.
