I was sharing with the cat boys that some days the people of the world and their doings become exhausting. How did they keep their hearts so pure in spite of their diminutive posture?
The day was coming to a slow close. Though the complex was still partly occupied with scraps and piles of construction wood we three looked up and watched the sun inch its way down, a little bit at a time.
In the then cool back yard Ollie dropped himself on the cool grass and started thinking in his head. He appeared like he had a lot on his mind
until I saw him stretch out
and start grooming. Funny face does most of his mental work during self-grooming sessions.
Augustus Sweet Pants chose the back yard wall
and pretended that he was riding a horse.
I started wondering if indeed it was a good idea to discuss such weighty matters with two cats. Is this wise you suppose, especially an orange cat that winks like this?
He read my mind, the thoughts that were in my heart had made their presence consciously in my mind, and he could read the writing in the air, and he became a lion in front of me indicating that he had no fear.
Augustus was puzzled but he too decided to show me his jaguar profile, a brave heart, a sweet heart that he is.
I decided to remove myself from feline spell and invited them to reflect on this:
O thou who art conscious! …The powers of the sympathetic nerve are neither entirely physical nor spiritual, but are between the two (systems). The nerve is connected with both. Its phenomena shall be perfect when its spiritual and physical relations are normal.
When the material world and the divine world are well co related, when the hearts become heavenly and the aspirations grow pure and divine, perfect connection shall take place. Then shall this power produce a perfect manifestation. Physical and spiritual diseases will then receive absolute healing. The exposition is brief. Ponder and thou shalt understand the meaning. …
(Abdul Baha-Persian Spiritual Teacher)
We three enjoyed being referred to as "thou who art conscious"...they indeed are so at all times, even when their eyes are closed. We discussed heart as a gateway between physical and divine. They could not agree more! They shared that they keep their hearts unsullied by making numerous kisses each day...kisses that they send out for everyone in need.
I felt so proud that I had to kiss them both and that resulted in their escape.
Wishing you all a grand Thursday.
