Learning from my cat - Deborah Donaldson

Learning from my cat

focus

My exercise for this week was concentration.

Haanel says in #27

become so absorbed in the object of your thought that you are conscious of nothing else.

When I meditate I am finding that I am working very hard to become absorbed in my thought.  My thoughts have been jumping from topic to topic a lot this last week.  I opened my eyes one morning during my sit and I saw one of my cats just staring up at me.

It so happens that I do my morning sit before I feed the cats.  Every morning I get up early, drink my coffee while I do my reading.  After my reading, I do my meditation.  I sit on the floor in my office.  One of my cats sits right in front of me and stares at me the whole time.

I can tell from his look that he is hungry and is very focused on getting food.  I know if he could talk he would be saying “feed me, feed me, feed me…..”

Talk about concentration.  I realized that if I focused and concentrated on my goals the way the cat focuses on getting food I would attain everything that I could ever want.

Certainly shows how we are all multi-tasking instead of concentrating on the vision at hand. Thanks for sharing this.

Haha! Indeed… my cat is very focused. Particularily when my attention is here on the computer instead of him. LOL.
