Thomas must be a Buddhist, because he showed me things it might have taken me years to learn.

...."Thomas was an in-your-lap reminder that we are all part of the same Great Big Universal Purr."
I DID Transcendental Meditation with my cat on my lap

You can't think for a minute that MY cats would ever help me meditate!!??!! My duh-level meditation realization is that if I ever lose sight of the obvious ~ cat shenanigans are sure to follow.

Never knew there was a name for what my cats and I did on a regular basis - meditate, be in the moment. The purrs always relax, always make a person not ant to think about anything but the love, and closeness, of each purring moment...miss that terribly. Thank you.

When I sit on the floor to mediate, my cats are climbing all over me. If I go into another room and shut the door, they are scratching on the door or the carpet trying to get in. They hate closed doors. Have to admit, there is nothing more relaxing then a purring cat or to watch one nap.

Delightful and awwwdorable. The cat that owns me is young and not yet into contemplation and meditation but perhaps when she gets older. She has quite the ear piecing meow, not conducive to long periods of meditation especially when she wants to play chase the red laser dot across the floor.

Our cats don't help us meditate. They sit on Mom's yoga mat and try to mess up her yoga.

With all the crap going on in the world my animals are the ones that keep me balanced.
