Message From Spirit - Dogs And Happiness
Category: John Cali Written by John Cali
In Alan Cohen’s long list of great books is one of my all-time favorites, Are You As Happy As Your Dog?
For most of my life, I’ve owned a dog. Or maybe the truth is the dogs owned me.
Dogs, and all animals, can be great teachers for us humans. Even though humans are supposed to be the “superior” species, it’s often the other way around.
There’s a dog story—a deeply touching true story—Johnny loves. It’s about Shep, a shepherd dog who lost his master.
After his master died, Shep kept a 5-year vigil at a railroad station. It was where he’d last seen the coffin as a train pulled away, taking his master from him forever.
Shep’s story has become a legend in the US far western state of Montana where he and his master lived. To human eyes, Shep’s long, lonely vigil is a sad story.
Yet Shep was happy because, in his heart, he knew he and his beloved master would one day be reunited.
That obviously didn’t happen during Shep’s physical lifetime. Of course, after Shep died, he and his master were reunited for eternity.
So ultimately, this story has a happy ending.
But what about those 5 long years Shep spent day and night at the train station? Were they happy for Shep?
They were among the happiest years of Shep’s life. Shep, and all dogs, know how to live in the now, the present moment.
So Shep, even though he lost his beloved master, was happy those long years of his lonely vigil.
He was living in the moment, the only time there is. If you, dog or human, are fully present in the moment, you will always be happy—no matter what your circumstances are.
You can be happy only in the present moment. You’ll never find happiness in the past or future.
Happiness exists only here and now. If, like Shep, you are fully present in the moment, you will be happy.
This is a short video about Shep’s legendary vigil.

In the early 1980s, John took a spiritual development course and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides. Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.” Source
