Luath The Prophet

Luath was the chosen and beloved one, a collie dog of dubious breeding but very loyal and clever . He loved to laugh, run and discuss the ways of the world. His years of experience and learning had given him an insight , respected by all who knew him.

Luath climbed upon the wall overlooking the city and the pack and shouted -

“Rejoice that we are not men but dogs”
And loud cheers went up from the Pack!

Luath started to speak and said “Say not, I have found the truth, rather I have found A truth”
There was murmurings from the pack but Luath raised his voice “ many of you have suffered many small irritating health problems and others more serious ones. The time is upon us my friends to take control and educate our owners”

A boxer dog in the pack shouted “Speak to us of teaching.”

And Luath said:
“No man can reveal that which already lies asleep in the dawning of his own knowledge.
The Vet may speak to you of His understanding of health but he cannot give you his understanding. If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind. – This is why we have the Land of Holistic Pets.

A Collie bitch said, “Speak to us of Self Knowledge”.

And Luath said:
Your heart knows in silence the secrets of the days and nights
You would know in words that which you have always know in thought.
Your body tells you that which is good and that which is bad – let your body tell you right from wrong.

A Young Labrador spoke, saying, Tell us about Pain.

And Luath said:

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Much of your pain has been chosen by your diet.
It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Trust the physician and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Then an old dog, bred not for looks but work, said, speak to us of Eating & Drinking.

And Luath said

Since we have to kill to eat, wither it be plant or animal, let it be an act of worship.
When you kill – say to it in your heart;
By the same power that slays you, I too am slain: and I too shall be consumed.
For that which delivered you unto my hand shall also deliver me into a mightier hand.

Make sure that what you deliver into a mightier hand is nourished well and able to nourish the soil – Eat the Land Of Holistic Dog Foods.
