It was raining cats and dogs that day in Cumberland, RI!
I was near the window of my flat at second level seeing the downpour.
A huge car came down and the driver parked the car
Opposite to my window away on the other side of road.
"Get down and walk home......"
The driver spoke in a little high pitch and
His voice merged with tittering sound of incessant rain drops!
The front door opened....
Lo! To my surprise, Bernese mountain dog got down slowly without a jump from the vehicle and stood there a minute.
He took a 90 deg turn and started walking slowly and majestically towards my block.
Got on to foot path, made a perfect 90 deg right turn and
Made the next 90 deg left turn at the entrance of his flat and walked in
With no jerk and slowly disappeared from my sight all together
The rain drops ever striking!
What a marvelous scene I had seen!
My heart filled with unexplained joy to see such a discipline in the mammal, of course
The joy was partly I was not in front of him!!
As I was engrossed with the thoughts of
Beauty of discipline in Nature and every creature around me exhibiting the same so faithfully,
I simultaneously understood that
There should be no shortage in me to be indisciplined any moment in life and thus slowdown but be on toes all the time everywhere to help the Creation around me to express its best wherein only my safety lies forever eternally….
The great learning....
