Happening Now: The Cat Life

cat life

Watch a kitten for a while.

Cat life is batting a ball around the room with adorable force, stop to smell something, clean its paw, find its tail, and chase that.  Before long, you’ll find it curled up on top of the ball, sound asleep.

Kittens don’t have clocks to tell them when it’s time to start or finish something.  Rather, they engage in an activity for as long as it excites them.  And then, they do something else.

You, awakening soul, may start to act more like a cat.

As time starts to lose its hold on you, events that you formerly counted on the clock, will change to events that you measure by intensity.

Exciting stuff.

The highly-charged moments might include the clearing of heavier energy from your field (ok, “purging”), or a highly fruitful creational session that left you exuberant about your abilities (finally! progress).

You’ll store all events, embedded with the emotions that you felt during the event, and about the event.

They will remain latent in your “past,” as supporting evidence —positive or negative, depending on how you stored them—for any choice you make in the Now.


Erratic Behavior

Now humans have chores.  Bills to pay, laundry to do, dishes to wash. This is one of the most argued elements of the awakening process.  “How can I do exciting things when there are chores to do?”

Well, if you recall, the kitten stopped for a while, attended to cleaning itself, and recharged.  It can be the same for humans.  You may see that your chores get mixed in with your play, and thus are accomplished in a much easier and joyous fashion.

So if you find yourself washing the dishes, then feel an immediate urge to check the laundry, follow that flow.  (Don’t forget to turn off the water in the sink.)

Once the laundry checks out, you could end up in the bathroom, rearranging shampoo bottles.  Or cleaning the tub. Or going through old photos in your desk drawer. When you follow each impulse as it arrives, you can find yourself darting all over the house, fixing this, folding that, moving things…experiencing.

It may be hours before you end up again with dish sponge in hand.  Did the world end?  Probably not.  If so, look for beliefs surrounding the labels of OCD, ADHD, or the concept of Zen.

This behavior might feel disorienting. Erratic, even.

You might fear that your short-term memory is failing you.  Can’t keep a thought in your head for long.  Shiny things everywhere…

As you polish a pair of boots you haven’t worn in a year, you may find yourself contemplating how you’ve labeled things in the first place:

Who defined “erratic” as a negative behavior?  Do I actually believe it?

Remember the kitten: Erratic and adorable can co-exist.

The examination and realignment of beliefs allows you to relax more into the flow.  As a result, the flow shows you new things to get excited about.  Stuff you hadn’t even thought of.

It’s like a brand new ball for the kitten, every time he sees it.

It becomes effortless.
It becomes joyous.
It becomes inclusive, and expansive, and playful.

So if you have never contemplated your definition of “erratic,” check it out. Please remember that you can change your belief about this—and any—concept in the blink of an eye.  “I’m done with that.”  And you move on, creating based on the new belief. You truly have no limits.

When you realize that your new, “erratic” behavior actually yields better results, and you feel more accomplishment than with the old way of doing things, you’ll store those unpredictable events on a positive note.  And by doing this, you literally change your past and your future; for you will be more open to unpredictability as well as be stacking up more positive experiences to draw from for present choices.

May the Universe bring you many new balls today.
