Path of Spiritual Enlightenment
.. Your Pet

Zen Doggy

If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without alcohol,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
You are probably the family dog or cat! .... or so said the email.

Have a 'zenfully' peaceful weekend.


  1. Humm...A zen dog? I will have to admit I need a little work on this part ... "If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ..."

    I'm working on it.

    Hi Annie;

    I've been trying that out for two days, yes, even staying away from coffee since Wednesday even though it's killing me. LOL! I've replaced it with Earl Grey non caffeinated tea. The rest of your list I've conquered. Have a great weekend my friend. Hugs

  3. Hi Annie,
    Great post! I can actually say I follow a lot of these rules so to speak. I don't use caffeine in the AM I don't drink alcohol I never bore people with my troubles they usually tell me theirs, I can eat the same food everyday and be grateful, I understand when loved ones are too busy, but where I have a little problem is with criticism and blame without resentment! AND sleeping without some aid I am a very restless light sleeper so I do take over the counter sleeping pills on occasion! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Dru

  4. That is so funny! I didn't get in here till Monday to read. I send an e-mail to my two granddaughters each week and would love to send them that.

    Hi Annie;

    I did have a quiet weekend and wrote some poetry, watched Anne of Green Gables, read a little Mary Jane Clark and otherwise not much else. Hope your weekend was a lovely one. Have a great day ahead my friend. Hugs

  6. Hi Annie! Jeff is always amazed at how I can eat the same thing over and over... he needs more variety than I do. Hope you had a nice Father's Day weekend! (((Hugz)))

  7. I can follow everything except starting the day without caffeine. ;) I do it only when the coffee is yucky or I am sick.
    Happy day!


I love hearing your thoughts and your visits mean a lot to me.
