A Street Cat Named Bob

Bob 2Bob
Ok, I never thought I´d write about books on this blog – but hey, you should never think “never”, right!?
And why not, there are so many great books out there, plus I really feel we should be sharing the great things around us instead of just listening to the glooming news on the TV, radio and online.

So, here´s a book for everyone out there – cat lovers, animal lovers in general and anyone who just loves to read a good book.

A Street Cat Named Bob is about, and written by, James Bowen. He lets us into his life on as well as just off the streets. Something most of us would never get to read about, as who would ever have thought about pitching a book about that subject?

James says more than once that Bob saved his life, and when you read the book you realize that it was not only Bob who saved James – it was the other way around as well.

What I love most about this book is the genuine connection between animal and human, pictured in day to day life, in a much harsher day to day life than most of us are used to or could imagine – and you feel the connection, the strengthening of the bond in every word, on every page.

It is just a really, really good read and so, so genuine (yes, I know I have used that word twice now, it really is the word describing this book the strongest way – genuine, genuine, genuine). It teaches us to live with gratitude and the importance of bonding with our teachers the animals, what they can teach us and how they can guide us to change into the best people we can possibly be.

Thank you James, and thank you Bob for letting us into your lives and sharing your wisdom!

My Middle Earth

coral-lake1

During our Writer´s Circle in June at Kathy´s in The Hague we got “My Middle Earth / My Perfect World” as our subject for our 10 minute speed writing excercise at the beginnig of our writing get together.
This is what came out from my pen…..
to be continued…..

Tentacles grew out of blue, yellow and green stars when Jorden was created.
They all had their different gifts and properties which were tangled into the creation of this mysterious, beautiful, mist filled planet.
Sparkles of love, joy and music showered down from the velvety heavens.
Bundles of warmth, compactness and diversity swirled around her – encompassing her with their rays.
From inside the core the tentacles started infusing wisdom, search and silence.
And in between, inside and surrounding all of this the whispers of the Great Mystery were planted.

Once completed – although completed is a word which does not do justice as She is bustling with movement, adventure and cocooning on all planes, continuously – the stars withdrew.
From above, below and around they stayed at a distance, watching, beaming and ever present.

There was a small, silver blue lake at the bottom of a steep hill. To one side of it the majestic mountains of Theo were towering towards the glimmering heights, being reflected in the water.
On one side of the lake lay a forest of old oak trees and young willows, all flowing with the winds. Sometimes you could hear a faint laughter coming out of the depths of the woods.
On the other side, a sea of green and flowers in all shades of blue, moss and pink were spreading towards the horizon of Eternity.

A message from the Seahorses

About a week ago I got this beautiful communication sent  by Lyn, which she had had with the Seahorses moments before she e-mailed it.

I am really good at cramming my weeks and days too full, quite often with stuff that is fun – even all my work is fun – which is why I am only getting to post this today…

Now ,reading Lyn’s communication and message from the Seahorses below, I realize it is time for less doing and filling,  and  time for more expressing, feeling and being the connection of  the Now.

Thank you so much Lyn for sharing this one with us all!

“Here’s the communication I had with some seahorses this afternoon…….

Seahorses are elegant dancers
We are all over and in some places people don’t know about yet. We love the ocean and all that is around us.

Be verbally loving !
When you put forth verbal love,
You feel love,
When you feel love
You’re radiant and beautiful
When you’re radiant and beautiful, all around you will feel this ! This is one way to start !!

Don’t worry about what’s around,
Be One with where you are at the moment, you will feel the calmness, see the beauty, feel the warmth, love all around you !
When you do this, you raise your vibration, goodness, love and light comes to you and surrounds you !

You are one with Mother Earth,
go try this as you have everything to gain !!!!”
