Pup knows how to meditate.
Not the new puppy dog, Brady, but rather our 10-year old dog named Pup.
(I know, the names are confusing.)
I’ve written about this phenomenon before, but I am astounded each and every time I meditate, because just as I reach my zen point my dear Pup places his paw on my arm, or my belly, or crawls up on top of my legs.
It never fails.
Pup is there.
I’m not sure why he waits until I am almost into a zen-licious state, but his timing is impeccable.
Today, it happened again, just as I slipped into a beautiful meditative moment, Pup was there, pawing at me.
And, it reminded me of something someone once said — a dog’s tail vibrates at the highest frequency.
Now, I don’t know if that is true, so I did some digging and managed to unearth a few tasty bones.
One, from Modern Dog Magazine, points out that “even though two beings may be attracted to each other, in order for them to safely connect and interact, they must first become synchronized.”
And, it’s through the tail that our dogs synchronize to their environment, to each other and to us humans.
Fascinating, isn’t it?
I don’t know if it explains Pup’s particular penchant for pawing at me through meditation, but it makes sense to me.
And, that makes me think that maybe Pup is trying to tell me something.
Part of me thinks he is saying, no, begging…
Can’t we all just wag our tails a little more and get synchronized?
