Zen kitty talks about the weather

I curl up on Cheryl’s lap, glad she has returned home from her trip out west.

She showed me pictures of flowers that are in full bloom in Seattle. Then we looked out our window here in upstate New York, at snow on the ground!

The difference in weather is so dramatic, one can’t help but wonder if what the physical senses immediately see isn’t limited. Is there more to contemplate?

We read in 21st Century Science and Health, “Human beings do not deny the existence of good weather when a hurricane is raging. They know good weather will return. In like manner, it is profitable for human beings to accept the authority and power of divine Science to explain the effect of human mind on the body and establish harmony, though the cause is unseen. The sins of others should not make good people suffer.

“There are many proofs of the illusion of physical sense. For example, when driving on the highway, the paved road ahead sometimes appears to have water on it. The barometer points to fair weather in the midst of murky clouds and drenching rain. What about the body? Physical senses tell us the body is solid, but the body isn’t solid. Cosmic rays, neutrinos, radio and TV waves are zinging through the body as if it is transparent. The examples of illusive, unreliable appearances could go on. Life teaches us to correct what the physical senses, human experiences and imprints claim as fact.”

Fishing Salmon River
Once experts realized genes aren’t stable and can mutate, the human mind took off in multiple directions, some not so good. Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) have become popular, although not exactly admired. Many of the plants and trees we grow have been forced selected. For example,

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
