Enlightenment Can Wait

“And now, seekers of enlightenment, we are ready for our journey to the sacred mountaintop. Please rise from your lotus position and follow me to… wait, the cat fell asleep in my lap. Shoot, I hate to wake her up, so everybody sit back down and we’ll have a singalong instead.”

    Yep, pretty sure this is how seated meditation originated. And most of the reclining poses in yoga.

      Meditation mantra:

      Ohmmmmmeow…

        My cat repeats that mantra quite often throughout the day. Many times. Loudly.

      Gigi is the new Oakley!

        I may have a “bon mot” from time to time but Oakley is WAY out of my league!!

    Is there any higher state of being than holding a sleeping cat? I think not!

      How about BEING the sleeping cat?

      • Mariana Paes April 21, 2016 / 4:59 pm

        Me thinks you are both right

    I will be looking at this picture all through the day.
    On Saturday, I asked for cute support from everyone as I dealt with governmental issues regarding disability. As was expected, the government wins. They will not give me any disability support.
    This site will be a huge source of comfort for me in the next while. Thanks to Mike for starting it, and thanks to all of you for keeping it going.

      Are there any social agencies that could help you appeal this? I hope something happens to help you out.

      lurking – sorry for your trouble…consider appealing through a lawyer.

    I think the prophet Mohammad could sympathize with this. Didn’t he cut his sleeve off rather than disturb a sleeping cat?

    And Pope Leo let cats sleep in his sleeves?
