The news we are told
Oh, the weather outside is frightful…
It is so easy to be lured into the lurid and scary mass media hysteria. It is easy to believe what we’re told is happening in the world. It’s sometimes difficult to turn off and tune out the negativity set of frequencies and remember: there is also abundant love and beauty all around us. Yes, we know there’s an election. Yes, we know that there are people and activities we find despicable. (It is easier to bear when it’s in Daffy Duck’s voice. “That’s dithpicable.”:)
Yes, we know that there are some people who feel entitled to other people’s stuff. Yes, we know there are crazy people waging war on their neighbors. This is the news we get. This is not new. It is the fluorescent flotsam that continually drifts about on the surface of civilization.
Just an aberration
It is easy to forget that the self-serving insanity above is really just an aberration (ab·er·ra·tion, abəˈrāSH(ə)n/ noun, a departure from what is normal, usual, or expected, typically one that is unwelcome).
Beauty, sweetness are normal
It is easy to overlook all the beautiful and “sweet” things that are happening all around us. There is hope. There is beauty. 99 per cent of the world’s population is getting along with each other just fine and is pretty much okay. Everywhere, there are people creating beauty.

Reflective of the true world’s energy
Think about the creative process, the vision, the length of the project, what it entailed to make it, install it, record and film it. News flash: This quality of work is reflective of the energy that is happening all over the world.
Your dog and PetMassage
Beauty, balance, grace, and high levels of functionality like this is the norm. This is the quality of life that occurs naturally in your body and your dog’s body and your worlds. Everything usually flows smoothly and moves as it should. Occasionally, we notice our dog’s flow is not as complete or as coordinated as it should be. That’s when PetMassageTM is most effective. That’s when a PetMassageTM assists the dog’s body-mind to reestablish its balance and comfort. Of course, dogs appreciate a good PetMassageTM anytime.
In point of fact, PetMassageTM on a regular schedule, such as once or twice a month, is great for health and comfort maintenance and management, just as it is for us bipeds. Then, if there ever is a time when your dog’s quality of life is in jeopardy, she will already have the skills of being used to accepting touch, inward directed awareness, and the PetMassageTM table manners. So, even in her bleakest moments, she will be eager to have the restorative of a soothing PetMassageTM.
