cats & meditating
    #2329330 - 02/13/04 12:58 AM (20 years, 3 months ago)

If you own cats and meditate, have you noticed that if they aren't locked out of the room you're in they jump right on you, and if they they are, they claw furiously at the door to try and get in? they must love that energy you radiate,hehe

2 different cats in my experience go cat-nip like bonkers when I have smoked DMT or tripped on Yage/Ayahuasca... seems like they catch a buzz with me :smile:

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

I find that cats are attention freaks (yet always cold and distant, figure that..) and they probably can't stand you turning inward and not staring at their puckered anus while they walk around with their tails held high.

The cat see's that you are being quite and can't figure out why. I was meditating this one time and I was able to read my cats mind. His thoughts:


That's strange, I don't even have his tongue.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.

Ny cat hangs around me and walks all over me and aroundthe immediate area I am in and is really hyperactive and purs a lot. I guess it is like he likes the vibe though, ya, though I guess it is a hyperactive happpy response rather than a meditating happy response. He definately knows when we are tripping.

It's the vibrations which emanate from you, which is also what people respond to when you speak to them.

LOL! I am naturally in a meditative state and have never had to actually meditate to reach it, but in the early 90's i had these weird experiences of rapid frequency raising in my energy centers during which i became so sensitive that i could only lay there in bed and barely move. And every single time this happened, my cat would come over and position itself on the exact energy centers which were being opened.

Since then i have become much like a cat myself and feel energies in the same way they do. If i walk into an unknown person's room, i am usually able to feel if it has been used for meditation or similar activities, since that creates a very specific vibe.

LOL! In my experience it is the same if you try to read or work with something wile the cat is in the room; it will invariably come over to see what you're doing and often try to lay down right in the middle of it. Very annoying.

Though i've read in one of the greatest understand-your-cat books i ever seen (don't remember the name of it, unfortunately) that in cat language, intense staring at something (such as a book) or, in the cat's case, for example a mouse, means "hey guys, this is very interesting, come over and check it out!" So if the cat gets miffed at you for brushing it aside it is no wonder! Like: "WTF is the matta with ya? You're the one who invited me over to see what was so goddam interesting."

According to the same book, btw, the tail held high means the cat is feeling good and approving of your company.

And if you want to smile at your cat, do it mainly with your eyes, by slowly sqeezing them together and radiating non-intense feelings of affection. That's how they smile at you.

Um... Yes?

:biggrin:

Actually, you have no idea how close you are. I function so much more like a cat than a human:

- I am very independent and always have to do things my own way.
- I am super sensitive and get very stressed by loud noise, strong smells, bright light, bad vibes etc.
- I am low-emotional and find emotionally intense & expressive people very disrupting to be around.
- I get more attached to houses than to people and am only social when i feel like it. 
- I have my favorite places, favorite paths, favorite food (which i eat every day, every meal).
- I love to sleep, need a really nice and cozy bed, and hate cold.
- I am innately lazy and only go out if there is something i want to 'catch'.
- And i hate dogs!

Perhaps you were a cat in your past life? That'd be pretty cool :laugh:

I'd like know what its like to expirence a full lifetime of a panther in the deep center of the rainforest (the parts most undisturbed by people) or maybe a tiger. Cats are awesome :smile:

Peace

BTW, that is a pretty cool effect you did to the photo, Swami :wink:

Maybe it is seeking for revenge... 
 
There is  a very old  zen story that can tell us the origin of this phenomenon...  :smile:
--------- 
Ritual cat - Complicating what is simple   

When a spiritual master and their disciples began his evening's meditation, the cat that lived at the monastery did so much noise that distracted them. Then the teacher ordered that the cat was gagged during the night practice. Years later, when the master died, the cat continued to be tied during the meditation. And when the cat eventually died, other cat was brought for the monastery and tied. Centuries later, when all of the facts of the event were lost in the past, intellectual apprentices that  studied spiritual master's teachings wrote long scholastic treaties about  the meaning of gagging a cat during the practice of the meditation...

-------
When i saw this post, i could not avoid to remember this story ....
