    Low-Maintenance Animal Companionship for Old Priests

    Wow @Colleen, all of that is absolutely AMAZING! I would imagine that someone who dreams of cats all the time would have a much higher tolerance of them in the Earth plane. I, for one, take grave offense to being clawed to shreds, and I've realized through this experience that I really get upset about property loss because I resent having to be responsible for physical things. It makes me tired and sad. If Catillac flings the clock off the wall, I have to replace it--especially since it isn't mine. That's just a great big ol' waste of time, energy, and money. I give thanks for the lessons Catillac has helped me learn, but I feel like a prisoner in my own home. I've been fighting for peaceful living space since this body was conceived, and my focus now is MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY!!! -- so I can afford my OWN space. Bringing in extra dependents is just slowing me down...Sigh....Now, it's all about re-homing him in a way that is the greatest good for all concerned. I thank everyone on this thread for helping me through this process!

    Catillac is a beauty! I have had cats my entire life and I find that they have greatly enhanced my life. I loved each one and they have been wonderful companions. Each cat is different but I had two that had an extra special bond with me where it was more like a meeting of equals. I have found that accepting each cat for its uniqueness and for it's essential "catness" is helpful. it's very hard to change a cat. cats are basically loveable killers. I haven't had problems with enforcing any boundaries with cats and I truly think that if they know you love and respect them, they will reciprocate in their behaviors. If I didn't want a cat on the counter, I took him off. I didn't scold or punish. And it sometimes took more than one time but they know your energy. and if some cats know it pisses you off, they will do it deliberately because some can be assholes that way. I always use positive energy. Of course, there are some cats who do have mental or behavioral "deficiencies" of sorts. My current cat, she's 15 and was a stray and a runt. very tiny, has remained tiny and is "stunted" in being a cat. She just hasn't quite gotten it but it's just the way she is. she can't help being so small and underdeveloped. with a lifetime of cat experience, few cat toys live up to their marketing. cats don't care about expensive toys. throwing a bread bag tie on the floor or a ball of aluminum foil works well. paper bag on the floor works. cats will show you by playing with things in their environment already. cat trees, even simple ones with one level, work better than scratching posts. the cheap $5 walmart cardboard pad worked better than certain scratching posts. they have to sharpen their claws one way or another. i've always kept dry food in the bowl and cats would graze at their own discretion and they didn't have weight issues though i have heard of cats who could not regulate their intake and would scarf up food every chance they could. that has not been my experience. and, yes, just a simple water dish that i change every day. I find cat maintenance simple. as for the cat litter, some people find the tidy cat breeze system works well because that only requires scooping out the solids then changing the pad. some cats don't care about the litter type and some do. feeding, watering and cat litter doesn't take more than 5 minutes per day total. cats will leave fur on furniture. put down a washable throw or a specific old blanket where he likes to lay. cats don't care but it might be easier to clean. or take time to brush him every day if he'll let you. i don't know how to get around cat hair. I just live with and accept its presence. i've always had the "live and let live" approach to cats. I seem to innately understand them and am a bona fide cat person. I talk to them like they are intelligent beings. they are beautiful, fierce and true to themselves. they always do what is best for them and many times that does not include the human. but, when it does, it's magical.

    Oscar's Eighth Grand Cycle

    I think I may have participated in this Grand Cycle, too. Around ten years ago, when I was writing an old story of mine, I had no idea where the story was going and wasn't sure how to end it. Partway through, out of 'nowhere', I had the idea to bring in a massive starship from an ancient long-extinct civilization. Two sentient species had repurposed this ship for use as a stellar mining rig - one species was Humanoid in appearance and fragile, the other species was more robust and reptilian in appearance. And in the center of the ship was a sentient AI named The Custodian whose function was to maintain the operations of the ship. Although the ship from my stories was shaped like a molecular tetrahedron, not like the Moon. There are other differences, but after reading this GC report I'd bet my inspiration did not come 'out of nowhere', but instead from old memories.

    Economy- and its 7 Stages

    More insights: I realized through doing this mental exercise that an economy isn't as complicated as I thought! In truth, it's very simple. Once we understand how it works, locating the points of tension in it becomes a bit easier. It helps us simplify the focus of our causes & activism. For instance: Consumers demanding more organic food comes from their comprehension of the Production Stage, and how it can bring true health to each product. Another example might be how people who want to publicize their brand are learning and comprehending how to ride the Provision Stage process so that their presentations reach the most people & are packaged in ways that reach the right people. The process of saying/giving thanks for food is part of comprehending the Consumption Stage so that one is as present in tasting each product & not merely using and wasting it as a temporary distraction. The process of acclimating to a new relationship you now have experienced is part of comprehending the Digestion Stage on an emotional level. An economy is basically the way that all forms of energy work in the physical plane. Funny I never saw that. I also enjoy seeing how economies carry out on Personal Levels, Community Levels, and Global Levels. Following that notion, as we grow we'll start seeing how Interplanetary, Solar, Galactic and Universal economies work too! (This is because these 7 terms are the 7 Levels/Tiers of Dimension or Reality according to the Ms. Which you can read more about here.)

    Economy- and its 7 Stages

    Btw, the 7th Stage- Assimilation- is a neutral stage, so it can be interjected between any stages. If we're looking for a resource, then at any point we can easily stop and let that potential go to waste, or we can find the source and comprehend that discovery. If we're producing a resource, we can easily demand too much of the product, or find other forces are pushing the product to grow in unnatural & wasteful ways- or we can comprehend the nurturing, patience and creative resourcefulness we're using to make/shape it. If we're extracting a product, we can easily find it rots away if we try to "pull it out" the wrong way- or we can comprehend the process needed to displace it without disturbing the neighboring environment, or the process through which the product obtains & retains nutrients. If we're providing a product, it can easily go to waste if it's poorly distributed/packaged/given or even rejected and dismissed- or we can comprehend how to best transport & package it for consumers. If we're consuming a product, we can easily find it doesn't meet our expectations, or we can recklessly use/devour it just to have it after wanting for so long, maybe not even fully using it up and just throwing it away in concern for the next thing- or we can comprehend the true pleasure, gratitude & payoff of finally having and using it. If we're digesting a product, then after completely using the product up it will waste away, or we can comprehend how we integrate what we consumed into our body, life, ecosystem, society, economy etc.
  10. I also did not want any pets after caring for and losing the best Golden Retriever, Rudolph, in 2003. I vowed, NEVER AGAIN. Then one day, in 2011, a cat showed up on my doorstep. I fed her and told her I wasn't looking for a pet. She vanished. Then, 6 months later, she returned, moved in, took over and has been my loving companion and friend ever since, and I'm totally in love with her. Since she was an 'outdoor' cat when she came (I took her to the vet and found her already spayed, no bugs, no problems) I have let her in and out at her will. In fact, if it weren't for opening the door for her, I would be chairbound much more. I completely understand your predicament. They are wonderful and also awfully annoying at times. It takes some adapting, but it's so rewarding and fulfilling when you connect. Michael's info has been very helpful to me in understanding what is happening with animals and I highly recommend asking about your situation when you can. It might really make a difference if you know which phase Catillac (love the name) is in and how to deal with it. Just because, here's a recent photo of my Kali

    Cats, naturally, love to climb. Keep in mind that an indoor cat is basically a prisoner compared to their natural environment so it takes a little imagination to give them what they're used to. If you don't have one, a cat tree may go a long way to satisfy the need to climb and be up high. My cats have never gotten up on the counter/stove but they do like trapsing across the dinine room table on the their way to the back window to bird watch. Oh, and about that water bowl... don't complicate things for yourself. If it is a pain in the ass to deal with, just put down a simple bowl of water that can easily be hand washed or thow in the dishwasher with the rest of the dishes. When you mentioned "scat mats" are you implying that your cat isn't using the litter box? Cats are pretty easy to train to use a litter box but they definitely want it kept clean. You may need to scoop a couple of times a day to maintain that state of cleaniness. Cats definitely require some maintenance but they are also very fun and comforting to have around in my opinion. They don't necessarily make a company friendly home though unless the company are also cat lovers.

    Cats are fabulous although kittens can be a little too much to take. I have had 8 cats so far and have been on friendly terms with many other cats of friends and family. One of my brother’s cats, Scooter, lived to be 20, had his own credit card, and still shows up in Google searches as one of my relatives. Nearly all my dreams have cats in them. When they are not part of the action, they are lined up on the periphery watching me. Once I dreamed of a store called The Cat Shack. Inside were hundreds of grey tabbies lounging on the couches and chairs in big heaps, upstairs and downstairs. But I was looking for a ginger tabby and had to leave. When I asked Michael how am I perceived by them, the answer was you look like a cat with electric fur. I think when I explored the kingdoms I must have been a cat many times, maybe a saber-toothed cat, possibly named Smiley. I do not mind the mess, hair everywhere, bites, scratches, and litter boxes. I have learned to tolerate a cat who flings my clock off the wall and climbs the curtains. It’s charming. When I rescued 5 week old Cleo from the shelter, she scratched me to shreds so bad my brother’s new girlfriend asked him if I was a cutter. Baby Cleo was so smart that he figured out how to ambush my big Hippy Dippy cat Boots using a floor mirror. Sometimes when Cleo zones out and stares at nothing in the room, I know it could be a consciousness moment so I’m on my best human behavior. You never know who is watching the transmissions.

    Fish are low maintenance. You have to change the filters and clean the tank periodically but you won’t have to scoop poop or worry about them getting on your counters. Snakes are low maintenance too but then they’re snakes.
  14. Wow, @KurtisM, that's some pretty insightful stuff.... I've been wondering why I seem to attract so many chemically-dependent whores! My energy is somewhere between The Secretary/Academic and The Queen (M/F: 63/37). I daresay that "Innovator/Investor" sounds loads better than "Son/Wildman," but of course there is a positive side to each. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks. I love these, especially the green cities with all the plants, trees, and biodiversity. I would love to live in a city like that.

    @Juni, his name is Catillac, and I don't think he's having behavioral issues; he's just particularly fearless. I'm sure that's a good thing, but I'm dreading the arduous task of training him to stay off the countertops, table, and stove. I've been reading all these books about cat training, and the whole business seems tiresome, at best. Catillac is effectively comparable to an 18- to 20-year-old man who has the energy of a kitten, and I've been wearing myself out trying to scale the learning-curve of cat-training when I'd much rather be spending my time doing other things--like figuring out how to make money more efficiently so I can even afford the extra cat-related expenses. This cat is costing so much time and money! I've been reading some of the ME sessions about cats on here, and I guess there's some benefit to having ones overleaves played out in cat behavior. Have you found your cat experiences to be enlightening at all? I just feel like I need more of a tangible reason to go to all the trouble.

  19. Recently, I have been studying the economy & getting down to the root of what it is, why we're in the Capitalist economy we're in today, and how to solve/resolve it so we can enter a Resource-based Economy that better supports our Mature Soul Paradigm. I have had a few epiphanies in studying the 7 Waves & Elements of a Teaching- that in order for us to close Capitalism we can't simply rush it to completion so it dies, we have to comprehend it- understanding its whole spectrum, its whole lifespan, and how/why each of us have fueled it to continue. There's a lot to uncover but I believe that by doing this comprehension we can better lean toward building upon this world, rather than collapsing it. So many hate the world we're in and simply leave it at that notion- but we truly need to bring attention back to the good & positive aspects of our economy & what we can do to help return those dynamics- rather than just see the terrible and sensational parts. --- Today at work I thought more about what an economy is & realized that like most things, it seems to have 7 Stages. So here's what I theorized and uncovered: "The ECONOMY is based off of the concept that when we need/want something- we must find out how to get it. Another word we use for something we need/want is called a RESOURCE. All Resources in life must be LOCATED, then PRODUCED, then EXTRACTED, then PROVIDED, then USED/CONSUMED, then DIGESTED, and finally ASSIMILATED. This is the basic path or pattern through which an economy works. Location > Production > Extraction > Provision > Consumption > Digestion > Assimilation LOCATION: -Potential vs +Tangibility PRODUCTION: -Demand/Imposition vs +Creation EXTRACTION: -Removal vs +Release PROVISION: -Desertion vs +Circulation CONSUMPTION: -Depletion vs +Satisfaction DIGESTION: -Completion vs +Integration ASSIMILATION: -Waste vs +Comprehension" (EDIT: I changed the -Pole of Provision from "diffusion" to "desertion" after realizing the necessity in the 4th Stage for packaging and acceptance of the product- rather than solely transportation.) This system helps us understand what an Economy is neutrally. As well as how it becomes a false economy in the -poles, or a true economy in the +poles. In addition, the idea that a resource is something we need/want helps expand the definition of "resource" beyond the physical- because we can need/want emotional, intellectual or spiritual things too. Hence we can stop seeing the economy as merely being Physical- and start communicating it as having Emotional, Intellectual and Spiritual Realities/Dimensions too. This helps us comprehend an economy in its simplicity and complexity. I am intending to eventually bring my explorations of this into my activism & onto some form of website so that I can share with others the underlying laws behind an economy, and eventually- capitalism and the RBE particularly. And I plan to share more that I discover/contemplate about economies on here- perhaps eventually getting some info and validation from the Ms too. If we understand what an economy is, we can start extrapolating it & correlating it to all of the different governments & soul ages. Through this we can convey how the RBE would work, by basing that logic around how other economies like Capitalism work.
  20. I think what you said makes sense. You know when my sister started to stand out dancing ballet. My mother would tell everyone when my sister wins a prize. It might even be someone she met that day, she would comment on that person all the achievements of my sister in the ballet. And I started to get very close to my sister. But seeing this now. it seems that she wanted to feel successful through my sister. As for CF impatience can be the third party. According to my mother's profile she would have arrogance as a primary and martyrdom as secondary. I particularly think that martyrdom makes a lot of sense. I'd run a person's sessions with those same CFs and I've seen a lot of things like my mother.

    And @PPLD has had a few sessions too
  22. @Luciana Flora I could also sound as if your mother was frustrated with herself and projected her own dreams and expectations of herself onto you... I mean since she didn't work anymore after she had children it could be that there was some resources, dreams and potential that was followed up on... Telling you that "you do not do anything", sounds to me like a person speaking to herself actually, but forgot too look at herself in the mirror... Maybe she also has a CF of Impatience
  23. Ps. Cats can be super annoying, but are also very sweet when they want to be. I had one who always knew when I was really upset and would come and purr on me.. She knew, every time. I miss her a lot.
  24. Last week
  25. There's a fair bit about companion animals here, especially cats, it seems. @ClaireC, @AnnaD, @Martha and @Bobby and I have all asked about them and posted the answers in blogs and forums. Here's one of mine: Your kitty is lovely-is he having specific behavioural issues? What's his name?
  26. I think it's a set of the two. You know, my parents had a poor childhood. I am part of the generation of the children of the new middle class in Brazil. My father was one of those people who became middle class at a time when the economy was more favorable. And my mother had to start working very early (after she got married and had the first child she chose not to work because my father's income was enough). And when I was a teenager, I grew up listening to things like, "At your age I worked. You do not do anything, just study." She said that when she got frustrated with me for some reason. Or "there are people in your life who are already a mother" when she did not approve or did not think I had been responsible. I always find this speech strange. Would she find me responsible if I arranged a child for my father to create, since at the time I had no money? I think all this has contributed to my being so annoyed by my delay in getting a job. My mother does not say these things now that I have a job. Even because it would not make sense. So I guess I should leave everything behind. However sometimes I still dream about these things. Which does not seem to help me much to simply follow my life.
  27. And maybe you had some high expectations of yourself.... or tried to live up to other peoples standards or expectations of how it should be. Luciana, it is not a failure to live at ones parents house at that age, even not at older age either, even though there is shame associated to this in these times we live in. We can be happy for not having to take up shelter in a nearby cave or tribe, but instead share homes with family or friends when we need it. It is painful when we put so much pressure on ourself and our body.
