In the midst of all the challenges facing the world these days, animals continue to be excellent models for us on how we can transcend the “us vs. them” mentality. In this smile stimulating video on huffpost, the police horse and the bulldog are connecting at a deeper level. Perhaps if humans consciously chose to be less adversarial and realize we are all in this together, then we could choose to see what we share in common and how through this commonality, we can come to terms of agreement based on what is best for all beings. I know this sounds quite simplistic, but sometimes, if do not ask the correct basic questions, we will never come up with the best answers. Can we choose to be like this horse and dog and from that common ground, work on developing a society that really focuses on what is best for all beings involved?
