The Dog Star: Straight Lines

(The Dog Star is a symbol of power, will, and steadfastness of purpose, and exemplifies the One who has succeeded in bridging the lower and higher consciousness. – Astrological Definition)

The dogs came in this morning and I threw them their dog treats. An errant throw placed Buddy’s on the other side of Bentley, who was eating his. Buddy quickly ran underneath Bentley, the shortest route to his treat, before Bentley got to that one, too. At first I thought this was a rash decision.

But Buddy knows that Bentley won’t hurt him. He might have earned a growl, but if he took the long way around, he would have lost the treat.

Too many of you take the long way around because you think the direct route has too  much risk. But no buyer is going to shoot at you if you merely ask, “I’m confident I can help you, how can we best work together?” instead of dancing around the issue and losing the treat to someone else.
