My column in the Swedish Tidningen Nara
The insecurity inside of us can make it difficult to balance a direct communication with balanced feelings. Often it is our own egos that put a stop to the unconditional love for ourselves and others. When we understand that it is ourselves that we have to love without criticizing, the fears that pierce our hearts will disappear.
We are created by the Universe and are perfect.
Once again, I read from my notebook. How could a dog be that spiritual deeper than myself, a human?
Immediately I was ashamed over my own thought. Who was I to judge or condemn?
The wise street dog that sat beside me would not be owned by anyone.
His eyes were glittering humbly, and still I was ashamed even more by my previous notion of superiority.
I realized that although his freedom would be short on the streets, he was ok with it. For him the freedom was not to be on anyone’s “leash” and moreover, freedom had no sense of time.
Once more, I felt shame over my own faith experiences. The more people (and street dogs) I encounter, I come to realize that it is about how I reacte to other people and animals. It shows who I really am.
There are no suicides among stray dogs.
When you have love for yourselves and for all, no one will be able to destroy you. We stray dogs give each other respect, and respect where we are in our own development.
We see you as lovable people. Your attitude to us animals shows where you are on life’s path. When you stop receiving lessons you will be hard-hearted and dare no longer to love anymore. You become judgmental people. An aggressive dog has not been badly treated by life in itself, but by man within that life. An aggressive street dog also knows that it is difficult to survive with aggression, and walks away to be alone and heal itself. While an aggressive man is not only attacking himself, but the entire Universe, the Earth, man and Animals.
Love the Universe with all your heart, mind, and strength. Then you can love your neighbor as yourself. We all come from the same source.
Morning Glory for all of us. When Animals wake up they take their little time before going out greeting their new day. Stretching and many times they “only sit” still for a moment or two.
Many of us adults start with meditation or yoga, or a cup of coffee in the quietness.
Homeschooling children is a wonderful (right now for us) happening in our life. I try to start a couple of days in the week with some thoughtful words for them to carry with them during the days.
This morning we read this together. I print it out and hang it on our billboard as a reminder.
Even when life gets in the
way and every writing door
seems to be slamming,
never stop writing.

A curious child is a teachers delight.
New year with mixed emotions. I love celebrating New Year, to look back on the year. To look forward to the new year, writing goals no promises.
Then, with 12 dogs in my home I dislike the fire works that starts days before and ends days after.
Entering the new year with exhaustion, and not from eating or drinking to much, but from the dogs howling and barking non stop.
But now its 2017, no time to hang over the past. I am so looking forward to create new missions and finishing up my book.
Its my Year, and I wish you all the same. Owe this Year. You deserve it!
