Augustus enjoying the rising sun in the cool morning hour.
Ollie is down below with me, also basking in the sun that makes his orange fur glow.
I am now chuckling at his cute profile.
Now Ollie is leading me. "We have to go", he meows.
Out on the street where I follow the fur ball around our glances fall on these spiky balls,
and the remaining leaves
that have caught some ginger cat's eyes.
I remember that I wanted to title this post "For the love of light" but I did not have any reading selected because that is usually SweetPants' job on Tuesdays.
MrPuffyPants then chose this reading for our daily meditation:
"O Son of Generosity! Thou wert in the deserts of nonbeing and, by means of the earth of command, I made thee to appear in the world of possession. I charged all the atoms of dependence and the realities of creation with thy training, so that, before thou didst issue from the womb of thy mother, I ordained for thee two fountains of bright milk. I appointed eyes to guard thee, set thy love in all hearts, and with pure generosity I reared thee under the shadow of My Mercy, and protected thee with the essence of My Grace. The purpose of all this was to enable thee to arrive at Our Eternal Might and to deserve Our Invisible Favors..." (Hidden Words)
I complimented Ollie on his choice of reading. I reminded him that all the atoms of dependence were there for his training, that his love was set in all hearts. He accepted the compliment graciously and also naughtily.
