To be Zen, or not be Zen
By Mr. Bailey, the Zen Cat
You wonder if it is good to be Zen, or not to be Zen.
That is always the question….
Of course it is better to be Zen, especially if you are a cat.
As a Wise Zen Cat, I have a few thoughts on being Zen.
I know for myself it is the only way to be.
Miss Mattie, my sister may have another answer for you as she would rather be a little mischief then Zen.
Hey, we all have our things. No one can “make” you be Zen and no one can be Zen for you.
Being Zen does have its advantages.
It helps you to stay calm, gives you moments of reflection that are true to you nature and it gives your body the ability to heal.
If you are a cat, it brings you content purrs.
Being Zen is important for human too. They really need Zen, much more than us.
Humans are always thinking and doing unlike us cats who “watch” them think and do and wonder why there is so much “doing” going on and not a lot of “being.”
Being Zen takes always your struggles.
Unless, you struggle to be Zen and then you are right back where you started.
So, today try to be a little Zen. Even if it is only for 5 minutes.
Be Zen while you are bathing, eating or just sitting in the window watching the birds. You can even be a “silly” zen cat, it is all good.
As for humans, be Zen while you are making coffee, talking to another human or cat. You can even be zen while you are in the bathroom. Right?
(Unless we bother you while you are in there and then all bets are off)
Now go…Be Zen together…. cat and human.
