I am sitting here watching my beautiful cat lying peacefully purring on my bed. He has no worries and is spending these few moments in the moment. He is totally relaxed, his back is moulded into the blankets, his paws resting gracefully under his chin. If a cat has expressions mine is radiating calmness peace and serenity. I so wish I could be in his world for just a few blissful seconds. There is no effort for him - he just simply is as he is. He radiates his contentment from each silky furry part of his body - he is in a state of bliss and yet he is not aware of this. How so very beautiful and soothing.
This short observing experience for me is a huge tonic and yet all I can do is observe. I do however think I might engage in this activity tomorrow and spend a short time in observing what it is to be truly relaxed. Perhaps some of what my eyes see might translate in some small way to a feeling in my own search of being able to truly let go of life's trials and achieve a special personal moment of deep relaxation.
