It was a very hot day, one of the hottest, and Mr Midnight and Sir Winston were lying in a small hole in the hedge, trying to get some shade. Although they were both rather sleepy, they passed time by having a small conversation with one another.
Can I ask you something SIr Winston?
Of course Mr Midnight.
What´s on your mind?
Actually, there isn´t much on my mind because I only have a small brain inside my small head Sir Winston, but I would like to know if you are happy with yourself. I mean, really content with your “lot-in-life”.
Why shouldn´t I be? Do I give the impression of being troubled in some way?
No, not at all; and I dont want you to take offence, but I was just wondering because I think that you have a funny, perculiar body form and was curious to know if you are satisfied with your appearance?
That´s a bit of a cheeky question you little rascal. What´s wrong with the shape of my body? I´m aware that I am not as sleek and good-looking as yourself Mr Midnight, but I am just as flexible and as fast when the need be.
I´m sorry Sir WInston. I didn´t want to offend. It´s just that you have a totally different appearance to myself and I didn´t want you suffering in any way.
Well, I am unable to keep my weight and at the same time, sling food down my throat at the rate you tend to do everyday, but I am totally satisfied with my life thank you very much.
I believe that I am perfect. What you see, is me; Sir WInston. The cat with a slight pouch and the occasional swagger to his walk.
I think you have more of a tendency to trot than walk Sir Winston, but I also find you purrfect.
Are we using those “silly” fashionable words again Mr Midnight? Thanks for the compliment though.
Just as yourself SIr Winston, I like to be who I am, and I find the use of trendy words really fitting to my cool character . 🙂
We do have comfortable lives don´t we Sir Winston. I believe that I am also purrfect and that I have everything I need for a happy life.
Yes; we have daddy who likes to feed and love us. We have plenty of clean air to breath. We are healthy and can wander wherever we wish . . . .
…..apart from if we happen to wander two-doors down. That new cat doesn´t like us enetering it´s territory. It´s a bit of an odd bod – probably foreign; I´m not quite sure. It doesn´t like speaking to strangers. I suppose when we get to know it better then we´ll be alright. Purrhaps I should take it some fish from one of our bowls as a house-warming present?
That could be a good solution. We just have to believe that he, or she, is a friendly cat and that they are only nervous because of having moved kingdoms. The cats behaviour has nothing to do with us.
……we also have nice drinking water Sir Winston. I love that stuff, especially on a hot day. It´s not as nice as your Greek yogurt or the milk that I have for breakfast, but it´s still delicious stuff. I even lapped some of it up out of the rain barrel at the back of the house the other day. That water is especially delicious. I believe that it´s got added ingredients.
You can bet that it´s got added ingredients Mr Midnight. When the humans have had their hands on it, it usually has catastrophic results. I´d keep away from that barrel if I were you. You know how “dicky” your stomach sometimes is.
I know that I´m safe drinking that water because I simply believe that I´m going to reach a ripe, old age.
Well that´s good. Your logic and intuition is right on key. Positive thoughts attract positive situations.
That is one of the main problems with the human race. They live their lives too negatively.
How´d you mean SIr WInston. Daddy´s sometimes in a bit of a mood but I wouldn´t go as far as to say that he was a negative person.
Well as we are both aware, daddy is not quite normal is he. 🙂
He tends to take a different path in life than most of his fellow human beings. He takes his time to find his own truth to many of lifes problems and now that he´s slowly grasping what the universe has to offer, he´s cast aside most of his negative, human thinking and become a much more balanced, happier human.
It must have been hard going for him. From my observations, humans don´t usually seem to get it, do they?
I think that most of them just need more time. They are too preoccupied with their modern gadgetry and their fears of the unknown. There will come a time when some of them will “see the light” and then act as we animals do; with respect for one another and living in real peace.
Mr Midnight – don´t even mention it. I know that the word “peace” is similar to the word “peas”. We had all that in the last blog.
I was only smirking about your last comment. I wasn´t going to say anything. 😉
Humans are way too negative. They often believe that they are either the wrong shape, have not enough of those paper things with numbers on them, have some strange illness or are simply the victim of their surroundings.
What we believe – wil be!
It´s a shame they can´t change their programming into a more productive, positive mode.
I like Depeche Mode; as does daddy! 🙂
We´re not discussing the topic of music Mr Midnight!
I can´t understand that when something good is happening to somebody, other human beings will then often tell that person to be careful or to watch out, just in case something happens. If one goes through life harbouring such a philosophy, something negative is bound to happen.
Maybe that´s what humans really want. Deep in their souls, they really want to experience negative situations.
I didn´t think of that. You´re probably right.
Most of them want to be healthy, wealthy or have the ideal partner, but they choose to believe that none of the above is possible without having to put a lot of effort or suffering into it. Adult human beings tend to lose their inner-child and their ability to go “playfully” through life. Instead, they would seem to sooner brood serious thoughts and put themselves under enourmous amounts of pressure. It´s sad isn´t it.
What we believe, simply happens!. 🙂
From what I´ve noticed about human beings, when human souls come into this world, the majority obviously need to experience suffering as their prime goal in life. That´s not a bad thing because out of suffering a soul can learn and develop.
Just imagine being happy all the time. It would be like constantly living on cat food-sticks (drugs). We´d always be on a high. There would be no real incentive to develop our spirit if everything was always hunky dory, Just look what happened to Cheshire Cat. He couldn´t stop smiling and he looked a fool.
The problem for humans seems to be that the majority will always take the so-called “easy” path in life which undoubtedly, often leads to eventual pain and illness.
Although most humans seem to accept and embrace illness with ease, believing it to be a normal part of life, in actual fact, as you already know because of being a cat Mr MIdnight, things are exactly the opposite way around. Unless the soul has opted to experience pain and illness, the normal human condition is actually to be healthy and satisfied.
If a human continually, conveniently avoids tackling the necessary major lessons on their path in life, then the inevitable outcome can only be illness. All major lessons in life are challenging and will not be easy to master, however, conveniently giving-up and looking the other way, will not necessarily help a soul attain its goal in life.
Domesticated animals will always take energy off their humans. The majority of wild animals also live in a “human-world” and if they are susceptible to bad energy or sensitive in some way, they too, will also pick-up human energies. They will then suffer and become ill but then again, their soul chose to experience life in such a way.
What you just said is quite clear to us animals but must be difficult for the majority of readers to understand. We´d better leave this topic as quickly as possible.
I saw some pictures in those “reading things” daddy takes to his “fur-trimming” place.
You mean those magazines he takes to his hair-salon.
Yes, his hair salon.
On the front cover it´s always the same. A thin, good-looking lady, with the same “big-looking” lady in a smaller picture on the left-hand side and a headline stating” I lost 30 kilos in 6 weeks” (or words to that effect). 😉
What´s the continual obsession with body size?
Shouldn´t humans believe that they are the right size and concentrate on thinking positively?
If they believed that they were purrfect, they would discover their inner beauty and “weight issues” would not be a problem anymore.
It´s the same with all topics of life. Thinking positively attracts a positive outcome. We cats and other animals already have the knowledge but humans seem to always be out on a limb as regards positively believing in themselves.
I´m proud of you Mr Midnight. Your wisdom is growing.
I suppose the main problem for humans is simply their lack of belief. They would sooner believe in what has been dictated by others instead of going for it, and searching for their own truth and being happy.
Well, there´s not a lot that we can do for them is there.
Not really. In a way, they are poor creatures. They believe that they are the masters of the planet but they are so far off from discovering the real key to life.
We wish you all the best of luck on your ventures and hope that some of you out there will attempt to gain a positive frame of mind towards creating yourselves a much happier life.
Do what we do; the animals. When left to our own devices, we smile, enjoy, and smile.
We know, apart from the Cheshire Cat variety, it is often difficult for humans to detect animal smiles – but when left in our environments – we do! 🙂
What you believe, will be!
Try it. If your “programming” has made you somewhat scepticle, take small steps at a time. You all have the time if you use it! 🙂
