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.

Saying NO
It’s a quick and snappy word. It’s easy to remember, but do we remember to say it appropriately? The almost universal word, “no” probably began with hunkered down eyebrows, becoming more serious with a shaking head. Well, we can take up that animation and its seriousness We can say, "N

Local hiking on the rise
The local Catskill Mountain Club (CMC) has given the community a couple of shots in the arm over the last year. Club members follow the proper channels, get approval from officials, and with GPS instruments in their hands, hack out trails for the public. The recent Delhi Trails is close to the Vi

A mask of compassion
In my observance of life, I’ve noticed a human trait that can get out of hand. We humor ourselves or others. I’m not talking about humor, hahaha. Wittiness and fun lay low when we want to humor someone. To humor someone is to indulge them, to give them slack, or comply with what they ar
