What do you choose to experience?

??????????  What a cushy lifestyle we lead Sir Winston.

Thank goodness I´m a cat this time around.

??????????       I see what you mean Mr Midnight, although at the moment I don´t see you because I have my eyes closed.

I´m just dozing but carry on, I can still hear you.

??????????       I´m very thankful for my present lifestyle because being a cat, I can come and go as I please.

It´s just so nice to be able to enjoy life to the maximum.  The poor humans don´t seem to have it as good as we do Sir Winston.

??????????      I believe that some humans are happy with their life situations Mr Midnight.

Not all human beings have to suffer in life.

MM-Avatar       But I often feel so sorry for them.

They don´t seem to have a clue as to why they are here in the first place and that they are always the masters of their own lives.

SW-Avatar       I guess some of them are learning but most seem to learn at a slow pace – at their own pace, just like we do.

The situations souls experience in this life are purely born out of their own creations but that is possibly a good thing because that is what the soul wishes to experience.

MM-Avatar       Well I can´t imagine any soul wishing to experience pain and suffering Sir Winston.

Are you going a bit doolally?

You seem to have two olives short of a pizza Sir Winston.

SW-Avatar       I don´t mind if you think I have a couple of olives missing because I don´t like pizza Mr M.

I didn´t mean that souls conciously wish to embrace pain and suffering but unconciously, they obviously need the experience to suffer – probably with which to learn a deep, meaningful lesson in life.

MM-Avatar       Well to tell you the truth, there is a lot of victimhood in our neighbourhood.

SW-Avatar       And not only in our neighbourhood Mr Midnight. Victimhood appears to be the sign of the times with most individuals conveniently jumping onto the band wagon of victimhood.

MM-Avatar       I´m not jumping onto that wagon thing if it involves being a victim. I´m sticking to why I came down to the planet this time as a pussy cat.

I´m not supposed to suffer too much this time around.

SW-Avatar       And I think the good people aren´t supposed to either but they seem to let their creations run wild, possibly because they don´t believe they create their own world.

The present life one experiences today is only the summation of our thoughts, and actions from those thoughts, from our past.

If we wish to experience a better life then we must become aware of how important it is to become conscious of our own thoughts.

MM-Avatar       So we better choose to use good thoughts and then the short-term consequence will be a smoother ride through life.

That sounds pretty cool!

??????????       I think I´ll come over to your chair now so that we can enjoy the evening rays of sun together.

??????????       That sounds alright with me Sir Winston.

Life is so full of happiness and pleasurable experiences – but only if we allow it to happen!

What is YOUR truth?

It was a beautiful chilly autumn evening and Mr Midnight and Sir Winston were in the garden sitting atop the garden shed admiring the view.

SW-Avatar       The air angels are very kind to us this evening Mr Midnight.  The air is so fresh and invigorating. My whole body feels so alive with energy.

MM-Avatar      I think it´s a bit nippy. Mr whiskers are freezing themselves to death!

The warm glowing thing in the sky has gone away and they´ve now switched on the lights in the sky. They seem to switch them on a lot earlier these days.

SW-Avatar       Nobody switches anything on Mr Midnight.

When the sun goes away the bright things in the sky twinkle a lot better that´s all.

How´d you come by such “knowledge”?

MM-Avatar       Mr Russian Blue from down the road, you know, Vladimir, believes that the night twinklers have something to do with the humans.

SW-Avatar       Well he´s either having you on or he really does believe in what he says.

MM-Avatar       I thought Russian cats were very intelligent because Russian humans are often going up into the sky to explore what´s out there.

SW-Avatar       What he believes appears a little unorthodox for my ears.

MM-Avatar       But I thought the Russian people were Russian Unorthodox followers.

SW-Avatar       You mean Russian Orthodox!

That´s the main belief of Russian humans; at least I think it is.

MM-Avatar       So the “twinklers” in the night sky are not switched on by humans.

Well you live and learn.

SW-Avatar       The “twinklers” as you so finely put it are a natural occurrence. I remember reading a book not so long ago which informed me the “twinklers” are in fact, called stars and that there are many star constellations surrounding our planet.

I think the modern star constellations come to us from the ancient Greeks.

MM-Avatar       That sounds a little unorthodox Sir Winston.

So you´re saying the Greeks are Unorthodox?

SW-Avatar       Not at all!  Your´re confusing things again. The Greeks simply named the star patterns although the constellations are thought to be much older.

The Greek people believe in the Greek Orthodox beliefs.

MM-Avatar       Now you´re confusing me. The Russians are Orthodox, the Greeks believe in Orthodox.

Which belief is the correct one?

SW-Avatar       Well speaking as a cat, I´m not quite sure but I think that human religions basically all come down to the same thing. Namely that all is one.

Humans just like to make things complicated that´s all.

You see, as a rule, people go on believing what their ancestors taught them to be true.  In a way I suppose following such a strategy in life is comforting.

There isn´t necessarily any reference to the truth in what people believe but their beliefs help solve humans having to search for their own truths. Although I understand religion helps humans, religion can also often get in the way of “opening ones mind” to other possibilities.

There is a star constellation known as the Pleiades, or Seven Sisters, which is a star cluster in the constellation of Taurus.

MM-Avatar       Totally confused but go on anyway!

SW-Avatar       Here´s a  picture of the Pleiades with it´s Greek labels.

disasterarchpleiadesru       pleiades

Now take a look at this!

We happen to live in an interesting part of the world, namely the Black Forest.

Here´s a picture of the Pleiades which happen to be “reproduced” on earth in 5 mountains of the Black Forest. The mountains are in the exact location as the diagram of the Pleiades and are part of the highest mountains in the Black Forest.

pleyaden-und-berge

Now some say that the mountains  are 5 stars of the Pleiades which have crashed to Earth thus pertaining that it will be the end of the world.

The Celts may have also used the so-called “Belchen-System” (5 mountains as a tripoint of France, Germany and Switzerland) as a solar calender so there may have been a lot goings off in our part of the woods all those years ago.

Here´s a picture of the Belchen System.

370px-belchen_system-svg

MM-Avatar       It´s certainly very interesting Sir Winston but I find it all very hard to believe. Especially because some people associate the layout of the mountains in a gloom and doom scenario.

That´s not how the Earth and the universe functions – or is it?

SW-Avatar       You see, we have many interesting things happening here on this planet but most seem to only believe in certain possibilities passed down from past generations.

Isn´t life there to explore?

Isn´t it exciting to want to discover ones own truths or are we all so conveniently time consumed that  “other options” are simply not important?

What is YOUR OWN truth?

MM-Avatar       At this present moment in time “my truth” is informing me that it´s time for something to eat! My tummy´s rumbling like mad. I only ate about 20 minutes ago!

Taking your own path in life.

MM-Avatar       Look at this funny photo I found on daddy´s computer. I haven´t a clue as to what the poor fellow is up to.

cat1

SW-Avatar       He looks really spaced out but also kind of cute.   I don´t know what a rollercoaster is so I´ll find out what daddy says.

author-Avatar       A rollercoaster is a fair ground attraction which propels people up and down along a railway track.

MM-Avatar       But why do people need to go up and down daddy?

From my observations you people are often up and down and without having to use a  railway track.

author-Avatar       Although not my cup of tea, rollercoasters are supposed  to be a lot of fun. They travel up and down at great speed, often looping the loop and going round tight bends, making people scream their heads off at the same time.

MM-Avatar       I don´t wish to be rude but I thought human beings were loopy enough without having to go round the bend as well.  A rollercoaster seems to be a strange contraption.

SW-Avatar       As oppose to us cats, a human  life seems to always be full of ups and downs. It´s no wonder some of you wish to emphasise this fact by building your rollercoaster thingeymybobs.

MM-Avatar       Look here; cop your eyes on this photo.

cat2

This pussy cat´s doing exactly what a normal cat should be doing. It´s enjoying life on the level – without ups and downs.  A cats life is always on the upside of life and usually a cat will stick to enjoying life on the “ups” of life.  That´s why we are cats.

Life is to be enjoyed and its what one makes out of life that matters.  We create our own lives and most of us would sooner stick to living life to the full  without all those “downs of life” if you don´t mind.

SW-Avatar       I think “Monorail cat” looks quite funny.

author-Avatar       And if you two would kindly observe, your funny “monorail cat” also needs a track, albeit a flat track, with which to have fun.  The rollercoaster track goes up and down and Mr Monorail here decides to travel on the level.

MM-Avatar       I didn´t say one shouldn´t have a path (or track) in life. We all need to know where we are heading. You humans seem to enjoy adventure, with a little pain tied in getting to wherever you´re going, but we cats prefurr to travel through life at a much more sedate pace.

The path in life is the same direction for all but the journey is not necessarily the same.

SW-Avatar       Whatever path we decide to take in life it will always be the correct one, whatever the outcome.

author-Avatar       And I believe that if we all took the same path life wouldn´t be life without all those “ups and downs”.

It is what we make out of our discoveries and experiences which count.

How to stop complaining, grumbling and moaning.

Mr Midnight had started  wearing a purple latex band around one of his legs and he was now proudly parading around the garden so that Sir Winston could see it.

SW-Avatar       What have you got tied to your leg Mr Midnight? It looks quite funny.

MM-Avatar       It´s a new therapy I´m practicing.

As you already know, I`m not too keen on bands around cats necks and things like that, even though they sometimes have little bells attached to them, but I wanted to start this therapy thing I read about.

SW-Avatar       But why the colourful band?

Does it help your blood pressure or something?

MM-Avatar       In a way, I suppose it does help my blood pressure Sir W.

You´re aware that I have a tendency to moan about things a lot, especially what the humans manage to do to our planet, and so the band helps me to cool down a little.

SW-Avatar       I`m not quite with you Mr Midnight.

Can you explain yourself a little better?

MM-Avatar       The other day I was lolling about, killing 8 or 10 hours before daddy usually makes the evening meal, when I happened to notice a book by daddy´s bedside.  I didn´t have much else to do so before I had another little nap I thought I would try and read a few words of it.

SW-Avatar       I´m not quite sure you should have been in daddy´s bedroom Mr Midnight. You know what a fuddy duddy he is about us cats going into his sleeping quarters.

MM-Avatar       Well if you don´t tell him I won´t.

SW-Avatar       Won´t he think it odd that you´re wearing a band around your leg, especially if its been quoted in his book?

MM-Avatar       I´ll cross that bridge when I get to it.  Anyway, don´t you want to know what the book is all about?

SW-Avatar       Oh yes, please do go on.

MM-Avatar       The book is called “A Complaint Free World” from a Mr Will Bowen and is about how to stop complaining and to live the life you always wanted.

Basically, it´s a 21 day challenge and you know how much I love challenges.

SW-Avatar       Too right Mr M.

MM-Avatar       It´s all about creating a positive lifestyle.

Moaning and complaining about things attracts negative energy and negative energy blocks the body, even attracting and reinforcing our negativity which in the long run, often creates all sorts of illness.

Although most of us are not aware, we all complain quite a lot – even us cats!

So according to the book,  everytime I moan, complain, nag or groan I have to swap my leg band onto the other leg with the goal of not swapping the band for 21 days!

Everytime I swap the band it makes me aware that I´m complaining again.

Obviously, human beings swap their band from wrist to wrist.

Because these strap things are not really made for cats I have to cheat a little sometimes. I hope Mr Bowen is alright with that. If I moan or complain about something then I catch myself moaning and will therefore moan a second time so that I may keep my band on the same leg! I think the main idea is that I´m conscious of the fact I´m moaning.

SW-Avatar       So if we can get rid of our complaining then we help our bodies to detox from negativity in which to become happy again.  It sounds like a great idea and a lot of fun is involved.

MM-Avatar       Here´s the website incase any of you out there happens to be interested:-

www.acomplaintfreeworld.org/

or

http://www.willbowen.com  (As I´ve already said, he´s the chappie who set the whole thing in motion).

SW-Avatar       It looks like I´ve got to go and get one of those bands. They are a pretty colour aren´t they.

It´s up to you folks. Do you want to live a happy life or not?

If you ask me, you´ve nothing to lose.

All our love from Mr Midnight and Sir Winston.
