A dog is composed of many cells, those cells make up organs; those organs have a function, nevertheless; everything works as a unison, that means that there is an interconnection, a relationship of all organs to work together into what is perceived as a dog.
The dog breathes without being conscious of it. Its heart beats without being conscious. It happens! There is a universal intelligence making all work, as long as we are in tune with that, everything is in balance, in harmony.
However, a dog is more interested in the “outside,” that is the world existing from its own skin outwards. It is in that consciousness when the dog “loses” itself.
“Shazam” is the name of a that cute dog.
If Shazam could think like a human being does; Shazam could be separating his body into different parts: Head, tail, belly, back, etc. It is in that idea of separation, that a dog could perceive its tail as being different. If Shazam bites its own tail on the perception that his own tail is not his, then there will be instant “karma” for Shazam.
That Karma will be in proportion to the intensity of his own bite. 🙂
If a cell in the tail of Shazam develops some consciousness; that cell could come up with a name to differentiate itself from all the other cells. This fictional cell calls itself “Billy.”
Other cells in the neighborhood, call him dearly “Billy the egomaniac.” 🙂
Billy has an attitude. Billy does not want to be a cell in Shazam’s tail. Billy starts his campaign to recruit followers for his idea of “justice.” Billy was able to recruit 30% of Shazam’s cells from the tail. Billy and his folks developed an insolent behavior; what is known as a “cancer.”
The exact thing happens with human beings. We are not able to see that everything is “us” for we cannot survive by ourselves, alone. That is the illusion. We depend on each other to work as an organ does to a body, which in turn will work with other organs, which will look different than “us.” Those organs will have different “parts,” to give life to something far greater than all of us, the World.
Whatever we do to the “outside” of “us,” to what we perceive as not being “us” will have a consequence in “us.” When we get to this point, we are dealing with “enlightenment” for the first time. Just like Shazam, we may need to bite our own tail to recognize that, for the light bulb of intelligence to shine….
By creating cancer here and there, thanks to our thinking consciousness, we are unable to see the greater picture. That is until Shazam bites its own tail with great anger, in that pain; “Billy” and his buddies will be gone.
But also Shazam’s cute tail… 😦
Shazam is all what exists in this movie of life. The plot is about Shazam chasing his own tail.
Some moralists will say that Shazam is a “bad dog,” for wasting his time in such mundane endeavors.
Some will say that Shazam is a “good dog,” for entertaining himself in such a clever way.
The issue is not about labeling something as “good or bad” and to play moralist.
The issue is to realize the consciousness that Shazam has while doing that activity.
Everything is consciousness.
Shazam gave his “Woof!” of approval. 🙂
