i just walked my girlfriend's dog and took him to the park. i realized that a dog (or other pet/animal) is already born into their joy and their duty. there is nothing for them to do. by that, i mean they don't have to think to do their duty (no pun intended), they just do it. now, that i've been lucky enough to identify my primary duties in this life; i'll just imitate my girlfriend's dog, because he just acts from his authentic self without having to double check everything: he is just constantly doing what he was born to do. that's it, and nothing else. for him, there is nowhere else to go but where he is, and nothing else to do but what he is doing or not doing.
so, now i will be happy by being a dog. strange maybe, but helpful at the same time.
