Check Out Your Spritual Progress!



If you can live without caffeine,

If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him or her,

If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion,
gender preference, or politics,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

Congratulations! Then you have almost reached the same level of spiritual development as your dog!

    And it’s even true!

    Although we did have a dog who had had rocks thrown at her when she was a puppy by some neighbourhood kids who happened to be Black. We were baffled when she approach the television screen on day and growled at the Black journalist. Then we learned the story from her breeder.

    Maybe the problem is that our human prejudices aren’t any more discriminating.
