Squirrels Teach Non-Attachment

     Looks like Mr.Nut found my green marker.

I've been cleaning my treatment room where I do Reiki sessions and I found so many pecans hidden there;  behind books, in the corners, under the table, and even inside the crystal geodes.
There are also chew marks on furniture, drapery hooks on the floor, and little squirrel poopies in the carpet.
Most people would be disgusted and upset if they found their room like this.  But I have found that if you have a squirrel in 
your life, you are destined to learn non-attachment.

Squirrels know that everything is passing… they don't worry about the weather OR how much food they have stores OR whether the neighbor's cat is going to lunge at them.  They just keep moving in peace and equanimity. They truly are enlightened beings.  They are not doing anything to "get to you"!  They are simply being their natural selves!

I used to be so picky about my material possessions… now after 11 years of living with squirrels…  all that has changed. I found out that all the "stuff" just doesn't matter because it's just "stuff".  The squirrels have taught me that only LOVE is real.

I am so grateful for these little buddhas who have chosen me as their student.  I bow down to the ONE LOVE that lives in every one of us!
