Paws & Reflect

Seeds IX, 31

Seed: Paws and Reflect

It’s been a little over a year since my kitty died and there are some days when I miss him terribly—still. I got still this morning and thought about why. It’s pretty simple. Charles was my teacher. Maybe I should write, Teacher.

I learned things from Charles I had never learned before in my life. Stretch when you wake up—your body will thank you. If you’re hungry, eat. If you’re sleepy, take a nap. One of the most important: when you sit in a chair, just sit. Let the chair hold you up. (I used to sit in a chair ready to get up.)

Maybe this is part of a function of a Beloved Animal Teacher—to teach us actually to live in our bodies. When I used to take a nap in the afternoons in Santa Fe, Charles was always ready to join me.

I think naptime is when I miss him most.

Be serene,

Dr. Susan Corso

Seeds are remarkable gifts. Sown in consciousness, they bring you to the most important part of your being—your Divine Spark.
