is a transliteration of the Greek word, εγερσις, which has the meaning of being roused to life. Thus, it is my hope that what you find on this blog will empower, arouse, stimulate, excite, and animate your life--your soul, your spirit--the wholeness of who you are.

Feline Meditation

 We have two cats. Neither one belongs to me. Nevertheless, I enjoy them. One of them is a lap napper. He will climb on my lap, or rather my chest because I slouch on the sofa, curl up, and snooze. I receive a few benefits from his habit. He is warm, he is soft and touchable, and he purrs and purrs and purrs.

His purring vibrates through my abdomen and chest and causes a settling sensation. It relaxes me. It is like a small motor that turns down my internal energy level and evens out my breathing. Frankly, it is meditation with a cat.

And rather than being odd, I think it is as God would have it. It is a symbiosis of creation. A simple purring cat brings to life the shalom of God. I like the idea of embracing the kingdom of God with my feline friends. They bring a lovely gift for the healing of my soul and spirit.

Although my Dog Rocky was not a cat he surly made me feel good inside. He seemed to sense my emotions and know how I was feeling. He had comforted me many times and I felt at peace when I petted his soft under-fur. I miss Rocky when I'm feeling down. Meditation with Dog?
