Moment of Zen: Cuddle Time


Y'all know how much I love HRH.  She stayed groggy from the medication much longer than I expected, but she seems to be doing better.  Now I just have to get her to eat.  One of our favorite things is our cuddle time together.  I found this picture particularly perfect since it was a cute guy with a cat and an ohm symbol tattoo (very zen!).

I've always said that I'd get an ohm tattoo if I ever got one.  I just don't know where it would be.

Ohm? Hmmm. Yum!

My stepdaughter gave me a "Men with Cats" picture calendar for Christmas. It was a perfect gift. She really gets me!

Is that the capital omega or something? Ohm to me means a unit of resistance to electrical power. Its symbol is omeage - an upside-down "u" with serifs on the bottom.

I'd like to learn the significance of the tattoo in the picture. It is quite beautiful.

I am glad that HRH is coming around. Like people, pets respond to drugs differently, so the sedatives may have taken longer to wear off than the vet expected. Once he doesn't feel so awful, the hunger will take over! Then he'll eat you out of house and cat food!

Peace <3

Jay: Ohm, also spelled Om or Aum, is a mantric word thought to be a complete expression of Brahman and interpreted as having three sounds representing Brahma or creation, Vishnu or preservation, and Siva or destruction, or as consisting of the same three sounds, representing waking, dreams, and deep sleep, along with the following silence, which is fulfillment. The syllable om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in the Sanskrit language, the vowels a and u join to become o), which represent three important triads of the Vedic religions: earth, atmosphere, and heaven. Thus om mystically embodies the essence of the universe. It is uttered at the beginning and end of Hindu prayers, chants, and meditation and is also freely used in Buddhist and Jain rituals.

I think you should put on your chest or at the top of your arm, like the guy in the picture. Happy New Year 2014

And I always thought, when I heard that syllable (mostly in movies) that it was just a stereotypical chanting, with little or no meaning in real life.
Thanks!
