GRATITUDE WAS HIS LANGUAGE

My favourite meditation teacher and partner named Lucky

As some of you may know Lucky mou recently passed just short of 15 years. His journey with us was fruitful, happy and loving beyond words. These words are not only for Lucky mou but to honour all our loved ones who we have all had the pleasure to be with.

Lucky was not always the wise old soul, he was a very cheeky monkey growing up! He so hated his litter tray and peed on our floor boards in his first 12 months and would jump and claw the children as they would walk past him…

Of course that never stopped us from loving him as we understood this was his way of playing if he were to live amongst other cats…

We watched him come close to near death experiences twice and twice we were so grateful he came through…. His last accident left him a little disoriented which required him to stay indoors and in the backyard where he loved to meditate in the sun.
He was my favourite meditation teacher and partner!!

Even with the dementia that slowly progressed in his later years was he able to express his deeper wisdom, compassion and gratitude… “just as a mother would with her newborn”…
These last few months it became evident he was on his way out. He showed us he was comfortable and pain free {confirmed by the vet the last 48hours) til the end.

My observation with their natural ability to meditate is to support one into death…. this motivates me to continue with my own personal spiritual practises….

The eve of my departure to Brazil he shared as he lay on my chest that it was his time but he would wait…… Once again putting the love for others first. He waited for the right time for our hearts to be softer from the joyful arrival of our grandaughter.

In his final moments my daughter who had allergy to him, and an exam for her nursing the following morning, chose to be with and hold strength, courage and an open heart as she gave him permission to go….. his final 8 hours – 28th July, 8am.
My son who just became a father 3 days earlier and l also were able to be with him thanks to video calling.
The key word and learning here is and continues to be GRATEFUL in its fullest meaning.. Thank You my Darling Lucky mou and to all the Darlings who new him and for all the blessings we encountered and continue to encounter together in this beautiful Circle of Life!
