Feline Quotable Photo Series – Zee, Zen, and Wordless Wednesday

bcThe Buddhist practice of Zen involves living fully and authentically in the present moment to bring us face to face with our true original nature, unencumbered by cultural conditioning and stressful neurotic tendencies. Each moment is to be filled with a profound peace and clarity and is to have infinite depth and significance. This is achieved through deep mediation and no creature has mastered the practice of Zen more so than a cat.

Since it is Wednesday and we are half way through the week, I thought what a better master Zen teacher than our beautiful boy Zee who invites you to take a break with him. He asks that you take a deep breath, sit with him in the garden for a moment or two, reflect upon yourselves and look for some peace, calm, and harmony in your life before you go on with the rest of the week. It’s actually a good habit that we should embrace for a few moments everyday of the week, but since us humans can be a bit obstinate, we’ll start with today and take it one day at a time…

  2. Zee is so regal and peaceful. Humans definitely could learn a lot from their kitties and take a little more time for some rest and reflection. Purrs and hugs, Lily OLivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette
