What is Zen?; by Scruffy

Scruffy here. There's been a hooge need for a lot of zen lately...Bogart's dad is needing very large amounts right now.

So what is zen? To make zen, I go out into the family room and think. (Yes, contrary to what Lacie sez, I have a brain.) So like today...I flop down on the carpet, shut my eyes and think about Bogie and his dad....walkin' in the peaceful forest. I picture the warm sun peakin' in between the trees and envelopin' him and his dad in a special light. A light that heals. I picture them runnin' and playin' and laughin'...being together...being there for eachother. Since his illness has separated this little family, I see all of the energy and vibes sent from DWB's all over the world wrapping themselves around them like a hug and bringing them together, whole.... even though they are physically apart. I see it healing and comforting them.

So why don't we animals run out of zen? Cuz we all live with our special hoomans who don't understand something. When I'm empty, I go to Mumsie or Daddy and let them hold my face in their hands and look in my eyes. I move so their hands will glide down my fur...and I take their LOVE and convert it to zen. See it's simple.

ZEN IS LOVE. Maybe they do understand.

We also heard about Bogart's daddy and are purring for them. We could all use a little more zen in our life as well.

Scruffy - You're a terrier -- we knew you had it in you!!! Zen is love -- and wirey zen or aire zen are special forms of zen but they all have the same DNA -- LOVE!!!

We too, we imagne a hooge circle of healing love surrounding those who need it -- like Jackson at one time, or now Klaus.

Thank you for saying it so well!!!!

Petey said...

Wow...Scruffman is even deeper than that hole you dug under the deck, Lacie. I didn't know he had it in him. Baby Stan, sure - it's clear he's the brains behind your operation, but Scruffy?

Well I'm proud of Scruffy for his eloquent insights. Well said, indeed. As those fellas the Beatles said:

Love is all you need.

Your pal,

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Scruffy,
You are very smart. Such a good explanation for those that don't know what zen means to us. I Butchy have been getting TONS of extra zen today from Mama. I've been clinging to her all day & night & begging to be pet. Now I'm going to lay down & think about Bogart & his family & send my renewed zen.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

You are a sage, my friend. Thanks for putting into words what so many of us are feeling. The heart of anything good is love.

I may be coming to you for diplomatic advice in the future. Get ready.
