Mindful : December 2017
How do your pets encourage you to be mindful? What values or feelings do your pet(s) inspire in you? • “Generosity of spirit.” • “Unconditional love.” • “Respect for all animals.” • “Independence.” • “Loyalty.” • “Letting go.” • “Caring and patience.” • “Kindness and humility.” • “Compassion.” • “Companionship.” • “Relaxation is impor tant.” • “Playfulness.” ● Can pets be mindful? • “Cats live in the moment. They know how to pause, observe, respond. They soak up the sunshine.” • “I think they are in the moment when engaging in many activities. They don’t worry. At least if they are well cared for.” • “They encourage me to be still with them, to sit in silence, and concentrate on touch.” • “When I get home I give my undivided attention to them. Yes, I see you, and yes, I still love you and missed you too!” • “Petting him I’m reminded to pay attention and be WITH him as I pet him. And feed him.” • “When I wake up to let them out in the morning my dogs stretch their bodies, they then walk outside where I observe them first just looking around taking in their environment. They do their business and then just sit. Looking. Obser v- ing. When the wind blows by, they lean into it. They smell it and then just sit. Then begin again.” • “Their shor t lifespans remind me to savor every moment.” • “They cause me to develop patience as they tear my house apart!” • “My cat reminds me to be mindful when I see him watching a dust mote and staring off into space. What is he occupying his mind with?” 10 mindful December 2017 the mindful survey To meet and learn from the best writers and teachers on mindfulness today, sign up for our email newsletters at mindful.org.
