The Timeless Teachings of Guru Zuzu

As Told To Tony Broadbent
If you live with a cat you may also be living with a guru. You may have noticed "your" cat's smarts, the way she knows exactly when it is four a.m. and thus time to apply her right paw to your lower lip. Or her instincts in sensing, hours before the vet appointment, that it's time to blend imperceptibly in with the dust bunnies under your bed. But did you know that the snoozing bundle of fur on your sofa is also, most likely, a spiritual teacher worthy of reverence and devotion? A saying celebrated in the teachings of Lao Tzu and Zen Buddhism promises that "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear." Author Tony Broadbent experienced this when a cat, subsequently named Zuzu - named after "Zuzu's Petals" in the film, It's a Wonderful Life - showed up in his life. In tribute he has created a series of delightful spreads - nuggets of wit and wisdom on the left, image on the right. So get ready for your own visitation. If you share a domicile with a cat, you don't have to climb a mountaintop, go to an ashram, or learn a new way to breathe. You already have all you need.
