My Cat Millie

Millie My Cat, Our Growth and Relationship.

My Cat Millie

I am sitting in daily meditation and there she is.
My daughter left her cat with us many years ago.
Cats. You love them or hate them perhaps.
This particular one is independent, yet loving.
She was not always so, used to hiss and bite.
Not today, over time we have grown closer.
Millie is a wonderful, loving cat.
I believe that cats are marvellous mirrors.
They so easily reflect us, where we are at in life.
Tonight, I ponder, what is going on here?
I feel the cat’s quiet, serene, peaceful strength.
She sits on the edge of the arm chair,
Then lovingly rubs her face against my book.
Taking a rest from catching mice,
Time off from being on the look out for them also.
She settles down, purring at my side.
Will she sleep until morning, or go outside for a twinkle?
Millie has been left to us by my daughter Virginia.
She misses her, she has put her needs ahead of her own.
The love of her life, sometimes moody at first,
One is still always wary of her, in case she growls.
Those growls can lead to hissing and biting.
Surprisingly, over the years, puss has become softer.
Her wariness and distance turned to that of trust.
One delightful thing she does is greet us when we come home.
Millie leaps up at the sound of our car.
She runs out fast, purring her head off.
So delighted that we have come home.
Millie has missed us no end and now will not leave us alone.
A very surprising state of affairs.
Like people, cats have their own ways and unique behaviour.
How blessed are the homes with a resident cat!
The cat does indeed sit upon the proverbial mat.
Part of puss’s charm is her independence and aloofness.
We observe puss and muse at her behaviour.
We ponder how it must be to live as a cat.
Self sufficient, contented, watching and observed.
Thank you to all the cats I have every known.
The ones greeting me on the streets as I walk.
Those in pet shops looking out, innocently.
And the ones I have been lucky enough to live with.
Thank you, I have appreciated each one of you.
It is so easy to understand, being a lifetime cat lover,
How many of us humans treasure cats and include them in many ways.
As a pet or perhaps more – a cattery business, an artist or writer.
Maybe you are a vet or vet nurse and handle them each day.
Whatever the reasons for your connection with cats,
I imagine that if you are reading this you just happen to be a cat lover.
I greet you from my heart to yours.
May cats continue to bless us with their presence.
To inspire us and give us joy, company and some purpose in our lives.
Cats are there to share our lives with and give us opportunities for growth.
Blessings in abundance to you and all the cats you have ever known and have yet to meet.

Inward Dialogue Journal of Discovery

I love to cook a lot.

Things all go into the pot.

Pot of stew, beef rendang,

Rendang, yum, hails from India.

India where she is rich with gurus.

Gurus aplenty, this type and that.

That village with stray dogs and temples.

Temples to tempt you.  Come on in!

In to the temple, smell the incense.

Incense to delight you, soothe the senses.

Senses, can you trust them? Can you really?

Really think and feel into the senses, trust.

Trust, the senses are clouded by the past.

Past issues, wonderful, remarkable events.

Events best forgotten, returned to the past.

Past moments of glory and of disappointment.

Disappointment is linked with attachment.

Attachment to success, to achievements.

Achievements can be wound up in projections.

Projections may be yours and are mine too.

To be happy, authentic, in the moment, in time.

Time that is yours and mine; a friend ticking.

Ticking, can you feel time on your journey?

Journey into the self, your special place.

Place where the peace may be perpetual.

Perpetual and perhaps an inner sanctum.

Sanctum of inner synchronicity, connected with universe.

Universe as within, so without.

Without universal support, no co-creation.

Creation on a singular level alone.

Alone in the world, standing alone, unseen.

Unseen by the masses, caught up in illusion.

Illusion like a magician weaves and conjures.

Conjurer, we would love to believe what we see.

See and yet, know it not to be so.

So far from the truth, that I know.

Know that as I get clear, I can trust my heart.

Heart full of hope, courage, joy and optimism.

Optimism, for without it, all is lost.

Lost like the battle, for the want of a nail.

Nail it, each one, go for it without hesitation.

Hesitation means self doubt and lack of faith.

Faith in oneself, the universe, mentor and creator.

Creator pushes one forward, with an impulse.

Impulse, feel it, feel the connection, the flow.

Flow from Source, Source to own Source Centre.

Centre, from a single dot within me.

Me and You.  We are essentially One.

One is all there is.  One is complete.

Complete, like returning home.

Home we ride together, as if on a magic carpet.

Carpet of past illusions, masks, released, let go.

Go now, you will, I will, we will together.

Together again, we stand in service, united.

United in love, joy, compassion, joining once more.

More and forever, beyond forever, that is a long time.

Time again.  Yes, we have enough.

Enough time to fulfil our purpose and plan.

Plan to succeed, know it to be so, we have the right.

Right is on our side, we are love and together we rise.

Rise up and believe in yourself, finish only laziness.

Laziness is the devil’s work and we are one together.

Together, as love, united we stand.

Stand up for our right to fight, with might.
