The California Desert Ecosystem is home to a huge array of magical creatures! The California Jacklope is one of the most fascinating.

The result of faerie magic fusing with the Californian Kangaroo Mouse, these tiny creatures are some of the most fearless rodents in the world. California Jackalopes use their horns to joust with one another and settle disputes over territory and mates.

Three California Jackalopes are up for adoption in my online store, visit www.LeesMenagerie.com to check availability.

Do not try to become anything.
Do not make yourself into anything.
Do not be a meditator.
Do not become enlightened.
When you sit, let it be.
When you walk, let it be.
Grasp at nothing.
Resist nothing.


If you haven’t wept deeply, you haven’t begun to meditate.

(All but the last line is from A Still Forest Pool:  The Insight Meditation of Achaan Chah.  I couldn’t find the last line in any of his published works, but students of his, such as Jack Kornfield, attribute that teaching to him as well.  I wanted to make my own post with these quotes, but source credit goes to @justdharmaquotes and @jacklope).
