I have realsied I am surrounded by Buddhas even at home. They do not seem to be bothered about the meaning of life or obsess aboout the future but seem to be very much at peace with themselves and the world around. I have a lot to learn in this department.
Valuable and unexpected lessions I’ve learnt from the cats that have been kind enough to stay with me for over a decade:
There’s no need to answer the phone just because it’s ringing.
Stretch! It feels great and it does you good!
If you look great – admit it but don’t let it go into your head. Stay cool!
When you want something badly – make sure you get it. How far are you willing to go?
Sit a daily period of zazen. Don’t wobble!
Don’t forget to check in with yourself and ask: “Do I still want to be here or is it time to leave?”
I have yet another Buddha living with me. The message is the same: shut up and sit!
Any Buddhas you want to mention?
