The human is what fluctuates. It goes up, down, pauses, sometimes even seems to go backward. But the connection between the dog and the owner is always there. And so the destination is assured. LIkewise, whatever human drama may come our way (we go up, down, pause, sometimes even seem to go backward), we have our unbroken connection to God. And trusting in God, we can be assured that She directs our paths. We will get to where we need to be. Our mission in life will be fulfilled. Our purposeful life journey is uninterrupted.
The human and the divine are connected. After watching this a couple of more times, it struck me that if the dog were obedience-trained, its trajectory would look more like the owner's. But even if it took the zig zag path, the connection between the owner and the dog is never severed. It reminds me of the story of the Prodigal Son in the Bible. There was an obedient son and the prodigal son. Both, even though having very different experiences, were always connected to the Father.
"Step by step will those who trust Him find that "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble." (from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 444)
Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need. (ibid. p. 494)
