Being on the receiving end of two sets of eyes patiently waiting, determined not to let me take a bite without my knowing they are watching, is cute. And for me it is a visual lesson in patience.
Where some dogs have been known to beg, these two don’t. They just sit and watch me. I am sure every morsel of food is counted (in a canine way).. do the chopsticks go to my mouth, or is the piece being redirected to a napkin, that “just could” be their reward for being so patient.
There is a shrimp dish that is cooked with the whole shrimp, that has been lightly battered. This dish they are particularly aware of, they know I will share the heads and tails with them. Until I actually say their names, they will just sit patiently knowing that they will be rewarded.
Other times when I am busy enjoying every little tid bit, I am fascinated to see that my usual dinner mates, have no interest at all, and have curled up to nap. They instinctively know, that there will be no sharing.
Do we, pay as much attention to those around us, are we aware of their habits, the different ways they speak or do things, are we flexible in our ability to adjust to the energy around us easily? Are we considerate of others? Is it our natural response to the daily encounters that pop us during our day. Can we put away our “ego” when it is perhaps getting in the way of a sincere exchange.
Sometimes what we say and what we are thinking are not in sync. This leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings.
Do you attract, happy or unhappy people in your sphere? Questions, a lot of questions, I know, but beginning the day with a short meditation/reflection…. is always a positive start to the day.
