An Almost Daily Journal & A Story on the Most Important Things in Life
The day is best begun in meditation lying on my mistress’ chest and licking her face to clean up any messy dreams before we meditate together. It is good to have the Zen cats lying by our side, their alpha purrs (“hhmmmmmm”) are god whispers we all are lifted by.
I can be a cat, they can be a terrier. We can all be one when we meditate together.
Elevation is important to lofty thought. When we hike the red rock mesa my mind clears and my paws float. I seek the enriching fragrance of pinion juniper and embrace (ouch) the sage-witch tumbleweed. As we surmount rocks and climb to the horizon my mind is freed of all daily dog tired thoughts and clears to meet the blue sky as it touches the high red rock. Snakes do not scare me and I float, gladly jumping from one rock pinnacle to the next. I am body and I am mind & spirit all at once and that is good. May you all experience this happiness!
Doggie is learning so much, what are these Sixteen Bodhisattva Precepts? I like the "A disciple of Buddha does not kill" - I saw almost all my doggie friends burned to death in our puppy mill building while we doggies left outside in hot metal cages screamed for help. This new doggie Buddha needs to repeat the Metta Sutta on lovingkindness and looks for a kinder new world.
The weather is changing and our meditation this morning is on clouds and sunshine. Sunshine does not come every day and the clouds reflect an attitude of mind. You read your beliefs in the way you interpret your clouds. That is very profound and we need to meditate again for guidance on what that means & share with the Lady Mistress. Doggie knows that brightness is behind every cloud even if Life is 1000 Sorrows and 1000 Joys. Doggie believes that every leaf flying in the wind needs to be chased, it may hold a secret. That profundity Doggie understands & oblidges.
