I really needed for them (the cat boys) to be relaxed and yet very focused if we were to read more of the material from the FUNDEAC course entitled A Discourse Social Action.
I spotted these cute paws and tail
and then the rest of him,
and I knew it meant that Augustus was now both relaxed and focused!
Ollie sniffed the leaves for relaxation
and assumed a learning pose!
Thomas, the neighbor cat who is not allowed out, read my lips because the glass would not allow him to hear well.
August, chose this paragraph from chapter 6 on Investigation of Truth:
"Knowledge of one's own self and of the mysteries of the universe is enhanced by, and at the same time contributes to, a consciousness of the organic unity of the human race. A conviction of the oneness of humankind enables each individual to feel as an integral part of one organic whole and to realize that injury to any member results in injury to all, that one's accomplishments are built on the sacrifices and achievements of others, and that one's own fulfillment lies in the welfare and happiness of one's fellow human beings. Awareness of these truths helps delineate the beginning of the path that will lead humanity out of the conflicts that have characterized relations between individuals and groups in every society throughout the world. Determination to eliminate injustice from society and to oppose cruelty and prejudice is no longer shaped by anger and hatred. Social action is infused with the feelings of love, harmony, and kindness accomplished by an unshakeable belief in the unity of humankind." (A Discourse for Social Action)
Cat boys enjoyed the reading and have asked that we further explore this topic. They filled their furry paws with little kisses and blew them in the air for everyone! Happy Thursday Everyone!
