Bonzo Man

Mr.Nut holding onto me.

Well, I never thought there would be another little boy squirrel like my Mr.Nut, but I was wrong.

 I do believe my sweet Bonzo has much in common with Mr.Nut.   You see, both boys had a rough start in this world.  Bonzo was having a normal life with his mom and siblings until one day, mama disappeared (probably due to a predator).  Then the next day, his siblings disappeared as well,  and he was all alone to fend for himself. Bonzo was alone for 24 hrs before he was found.   

Similarly, Mr.Nut and his brothers were content in their tree until someone knocked their nest down.   Long story short,  the nest was found by a woman, but only 2 of the 3 squirrels were in it.  Then, 24 hours later, Mr.Nut was found all by himself.   You see, both Bonzo and Mr.Nut were all alone to fend for themselves a full day before someone found them.   This period of time without any mother or siblings to keep them warm had an effect on their development.    At least Bonzo was a few weeks older so he was not as seriously affected as was Mr.Nut.  Mr.Nut was only 2 weeks old and could not maintain his warmth without another warm-blooded mammal to help him.  He was cold when I got him.

And now, just like Mr.Nut, my Bonzo loves to cling to my hands.   He holds on as if to say, "Momma, I will never leave you!" 

Bonzo,   holding onto me.

Is Bonzo a reincarnation of Mr.Nut?  I really don't know.
But I will say that it is wonderful to be reminded of Mr.Nut on a daily basis.  Bonzo is full of juicy happiness and loves to be the "kitchen squirrel".   He continues to let me know how much he loves me!  
And there's nothing better than that!

I LOVE my mom!

Squirrel Realization

Beautiful Sri Nut Ji

So, it's come to my attention that there is a great deal of confusion over the term "Enlightenment".   For thousands of years, the term 'enlightenment' has been equated to 'Self-realization'.    And Self-realization has meant the discovery that YOU are not the small self, but rather the Self with a capital S, which is to say...   the Totality.   

I beg to differ in the use of terms.   We can and should be more precise in our selection of words!!   I have come to discover that this "Self" the sages and masters talk about is none other that the Great Squirreluminosity!   i.e....   The Squirreluminosity, aka Juicy Squirrel Happiness, aka The One Squirrel Heart....  all point to the same "Self"!!! 

Sweet Miss Nutleigh Ji
   Therefore, What humans are really seeking is none other than Squirrel-Realization!   (Squirrel with a capital S)   I can attest to the Truth of this, but to give you your own experience, I would recommend that you listen to the song that our Miss Nutleigh gave the world.  This song was performed at Byron Katie's New Year's event just a few weeks ago.  

And so, on this day, January 21st, the officially recognized Day of Appreciation of Squirrels,
we express our profound gratitude for all the transformation that the little squirrels have facilitated on our planet!
Long may their tails wave!
