THE ZEN MASTER

“I have lived with several Zen masters -- all of them cats.” Eckhart Tolle

Inspired by my meditation buddy: Poppy, the cat. She just knows when I'm about to sit down and be still, and she loves it. She spends most of her waking hours completely and utterly enjoying the present moment, making the most of the little things: sliver of sunshine on the living room floor, cosy blanket on the sofa, fresh air on the balcony, a bit of lap time here and there. I like it when she meditates with me -- always feel just that little bit more grounded and zen for it.
