Follow the Path of the


I was in a near fatal accident and
while convalescing at home
I came to see our Doggiesattva,
the Doggess Athena
(aka Italian Greyhound bitch), as—
my Therapy Dog.

She is so mindful of me that I came to realize
that I could do no better than to learn from her,
and so resolved to become—
her Therapy Human.

Our give and receive works so well
that my wife and I have vowed to be
therapy humans to one another—
a love that is Mindful Understanding.

Thus may all come to follow:

The Path of the Dog

Find the Way;
Become a therapy human today.

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.
Fill your mind with compassion.
Above all, do not mistake me for someone else.



He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be.
Let us rise up and be thankful.



Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
Do not dwell in the past, nor the future, con-centrate the mind on the present moment.
Pride indicates extreme ignorance of self.



Imagination is more important than know-ledge... knowledge is limited, but imagination encircles the world.
Time you enjoy wasting is never wasted.            
To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one's own in the midst of abundance.



He who knows himself is enlightened.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.



When we come into contact, our thoughts and actions should express our mind of compassion.
Why abstain from love?                         
The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.



Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.
Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule.
Love is all we have, the only way that each can help the other.



There is no remedy for love but to love more.
To love that well which thou must lose ere long.
The flowering of love is meditation.



Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.
I am awake.             .                
No matter how hard the past, one can always begin again today.
