Everyday Spirituality


Zen Kitty Communicates

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Zen Kitty here,

Living in upstate New York, in a quiet home, in the woods, gives me the opportunity to explore and reflect. Not to say I didn’t explore and reflect the first six weeks of my life when I lived in the one hundred year old barn with my multitude of aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, and cousins (yes, I am a pure-bred barn cat). A contemplative wonder has always had a grip on me. That is probably why Cheryl singled me out a couple of years ago and brought me to her house.

It is okay to be singled-out sometimes and I’ve obviously been singled-out again as a guest writer for Everyday Spirituality, however, I wager that there are many cats and dogs and horses, and so on, who are somehow connected to   Beliefnet, who understand where I am coming from and where I am going. Love and Life.

So, all you 4 legged friends, please leave a comment (with a link to your picture) and let me know what you’re finding in your exploration and reflection.

Our cat species may not have the human capability to invent things, but we aren’t very complicated. While human beings invent words (and I’ve noticed some people use those words excessively while not saying a darn thing), cats are minimalists. One word, Meow, generally gets an idea across just fine.

Meow. It is time to go watch flowers bloom.

Are we thinking?
The activity of thinking comes in many disguises. Thinking can be quiet, loud, scary, peaceful, progressive, or a completely thoughtless exercise. Some thinking isn’t thinking at all. Examples of thoughtless thinking: A mental rehearsal of the day’s activities. A repetition of the

What I learned in third grade
When I first started reporting for the newspaper, the learning curve was steep. An enormous effort was needed on my part to interview productively then write an article that made sense. Did I mention the enormous effort? I would literally sweat when writing. Writing is more effortless today

Human minds aren't judging us as much as we think
It’s important to feel good about our self. When we don’t feel good about our self, our level of self-consciousness is so weighty it takes all the fun out of life. The enormous scope of what it takes for a person to feel good about themselves is mind-boggling. I’ve met people who feel go
