The woman is you and the dog is your mind. The man
represents the events of your life that draw you towards them
(desire) or that have you want to run away (repulsion).
The event takes place, and your mind starts its reactivity
and you follow habitually, in ignorance of the full
potential effects of your action, and you end up suffering.
Feed your mind with healthy spiritual food that
fills it so well it doesn't desire and
blindly react to anyone elses. Witness your life
as it takes place and neither run towards or away from
"stuff". As St Paul once said "Let it be".
