On the way to work this morning

I came across my favorite little bird..hop, hop, hop, tss, tss, tss, it fluttered from spot to spot, so fast I could not really see. I was about to just walk past him or her when I realized that I could not just do that. I grabbed my kitty camera for a few shots.

Earlier in time, yesterday, MrSweetPants was reposing and when I decided to photograph his beautifulness

he gave me the look that said I am reading your mind!

Somewhat earlier the same day I was with MrPuffyPants on a stroll. He took me back to the backyard where he told me that he was my leader. I was puzzled by this because I already knew that!

We meditated individually on this:

"Although a brief example hath been given concerning the beginning and ending of the relative world, the world of attributes, yet a second illustration is now added, that the full meaning may be manifest.
For instance, let thine Eminence consider his own self; thou art first in relation to thy son, last in relation to thy father. In thine outward appearance, thou tellest of the appearance of power in the realms of divine creation; in thine inward being thou revealest the hidden mysteries which are the divine trust deposited within thee.
And thus firstness and lastness, outwardness and inwardness are, in the sense referred to, true of thyself, that in these four states conferred upon thee thou shouldst comprehend the four divine states, and that the nightingale of thine heart on all the branches of the rosetree of existence, whether visible or concealed, should cry out: "He is the first and the last, the Seen and the Hidden...." These statements are made in the sphere of that which is relative, because of the limitations of men. Otherwise, those personages who in a single step have passed over the world of the relative and the limited, and dwelt on the fair plane of the Absolute, and pitched their tent in the worlds of authority and command -- have burned away these relativities with a single spark, and blotted out these words with a drop of dew. And they swim in the sea of the spirit, and soar in the holy air of light. Then what life have words, on such a plane, that "first" and "last" or other than these be seen or mentioned! In this realm, the first is the last itself, and the last is but the first.

"In thy soul of love build thou a fire
And burn all thoughts and words entire. [Rumi]" " (Seven Valleys)

MrPuffyPants sent you kisses.

Wishing all love and joy...



  1. I love the closing eyes...I think that translates as contentment :).

  2. I must admit I was a little lost in your reading today but I did Google Seven Valleys. Looks like it's from the Ba hai faith. Interesting. As usual your kitty captures and captions are perfection--such entertainment for this cat lover. :)

  3. Hannah- I do too, and I did not know that it meant contentment...I feel better now : )

    Grace- Seven Valleys was written by prophet founder of Baha'i faith in response to a Sufi leader. Sufism focuses to the stages the soul must travel before its union with its Creator, it is incredibly mystical and fascinating to mystic cats. xx

  4. It´s so green over there yet.
    You are a marvelous photographer; the expressions on the faces of Ollie and Augustus.
    But, what´s with the blogger? When I enlarge, nothing happens.
    I can not see the bird either??

  5. Wishing you and yours love and joy too.

    I appreciate your range of readings, considering all faiths......multifaithual.

    I had such a fun visit Mona, thank you SO much for making the drive out, your warmth and spirit always shines.

    xoxox purrrrrrr

  6. Mette, you are so complimenting, thank you....I don't know why you cannot enlarge it, it is a humming bird and unfortunately it zipped around so I could not get better shots xx

    Ro- the pleasure was all mine, I always have such a good time visiting you and your lovely friends too, your house is a friendly place xx

  7. haha, I know that "reading you mind" look! :D

  8. When kitties close eyes it makes us happy :). xoxo
