Teacher is everywhere in life, it’s all depend on us whether our mind is empty and whether we are willing to learn.
I went for dharma talk, during the talk the lovely dharma cat walked in the hall.
People are not being bothered or disturbed by her, we were focus on the Dhamma teaching.
People treat her with loving kindness, nobody chase her away.
If this is happen in our house, how do you react?
Can you accommodate?
Are you chase her away?
Are you shouting?
Are you angry?
Once you treat animals as equal as us… there will be no difference in treatment.
You will treat them like human. Be compassion and loving kindness to them.
This is true. My aunty spends short stay with us.
Little White, our lovely cat is trying his best to avoid her.
Once my aunty is in living room, he’ll run out from our house.
He’ll be back when my aunty go to bed.
It’s animal instinct.
The main reason we can think of is my aunty doesn’t love animals so much.
Animals can sense your intention very well.
“If we have the energy of compassion and loving kindness in us, the people around us will be influenced by our way of being and living” Thich Nhat Hanh
