Ollie pretends to be a lion
while Augustus seems to think he is a jaguar,
and roams about!
Ollie closes his eyes and prays that Augustus is safe!
Soon after the pretend game they come down for a roll on the cement land!
Roll this way and that!
Cat boys asked me to read them something deep, and as I was imagining what these dudes believe their true selves to be, I chose the great mystic, Rumi.
The Truth is yourself, but not your mere bodily self,
Your real self is higher than 'you' and 'me.'
This visible 'you' which you fancy to be yourself
Is limited in place, the real 'you' is not limited.
Why, O pearl, linger you trembling in your shell?
Esteem not yourself mere sugar-cane, but real sugar.
This outward 'you' is foreign to your real ' you;'
Cling to your real self, quit this dual self.
Your last self attains to your first (real) self
Only through your attending earnestly to that union.
Your real self lies hid beneath your outward self,
For 'I am the servant of him who looks into himself.' "
Then they relaxed to this music.
And this was how we spent our early Monday everning.
Buenas Martes and a handful of cat kisses too...
