Wasn't it just Yesterday?
Soul-o is a sunbather.
There is more noticing here than anything else.
This figure is a leftover, cut from the back of another stray self cloth to manage thickness. A shadow self. A scrap of self. What' left of self. Just so funny how the foot happened. I tried a bit of stitching on very gauzy cloth, I think the struggle is evident but the spin is still there. I kind of like that I can pull it out of shape. And the spin is still there.
That Soul o knows how to get the best out of life.
Learning from him……🌞
Umm…what day is it? 🙂 Shadow self makes me think of all kinds of stories and I am with Soul-o, love a good sun beam. Best place for a nap.
it might be warm enough here today…in the sun…
When I saw the pic on the main page, I thought it was a cloth with Soul-o’s shadow showing through, that he was looking out a sunny window.
Our neighborhood cat sunbathes/naps on our deck step most sunny days.
probably I have taken pic like that a lot since we came here, looking out the window. and that cloth is like clouds
it’s as tho you’ve traced around soul-o’s soul. the sway and lean of it, about to step into that spiral. can totally picture the two of you stretched out side by side in that sunbeam! x
i lay on the floor a lot. with him
Hahaha, an amazing leftover !!!
so funny to find it
too darn cute. it’s like the days have wings!
The true work—discovering the shadow self. You are well on your way.
Yeah, it’s rough some days and just so simple sometimes.
I’m with Soul-O….about to have a nap! Not something I do as a rule, but today, yes.
The cutout cat is positively dancing with life. How amazing the foot.
I laughed with a fullness
I like the standing cat —it’s as if he sees something on the horizon, a bird maybe?
I refer to cats that love a good sunbath as organic solar collectors.
If there is a sunbeam anywhere in the house a cat will find it.
and then radiate heat when you most need it.
(((Soul-O))) ❤️ your shadow self
he’s such a good companion
gotta love all our selves,
The black piece looks like soul-o stretched out! 💙
yes, just noticed that
Insight. In sight. Eye sight. A sight for sore eyes. So many kinds of seeing…
Patches of sun warming, and illuminating. Softening into receptivity. Souls, shadows, and silhouettes.
that’s what we got here, patches of sun
When I first began to read your post (sans pics) in my email, I mistook it for one of the emails I receive from spiritual/nonduality groups. Quite fabulous! Then I opened and read with the pictures. It was an experience of the world as dream, and then the world as existing. What fun!
and again, one thing becomes another!
Such a lovely post a d picture of the darling boy! Some cats do love sun worshipping! My late cat Bill could always be found where there was any scrap of sun and he’d just give himself to the hottest sun of the day which I never understood. Lovely to see the other ‘self’.
there is always another self lurking in the shadows. and a cat napping in the sun. I know he is just waiting to crash in my planter out on the deck…
Soul-o gives life and fullness to the words “here!”, “now!”, “this moment!” …the effortlessness of it all, makes me grin. Love this pic! Perfect.
reminder is his middle name
Hi again. Love how vital that simple silhouette is. It’s on the verge of everything.
I was startled.
I think the second pic is just Soul-o stretched out as in the first pic.” Can the see what I see?” Thanks for all you do for all of us. Happy Spring to you.
stretched, yes! the word of the day then…. stretch.
I’ve been stitching spirals free-hand … now you have me thinking it would be fun to see what happens if I stretch them out …
by the way, I went down the rabbit hole, looking for when Soul-O made his first appearance … and yes, it was 2014, when I too found my way to Spirit Cloth … how quickly those years have passed
the stretching, distorting of shapes, keeps them becoming somehow.
nothing new, but for me, yes, time flying
That silhouette is so more CAT than SELF at this stage…I’m with Soul-O! Just wanna lie around and soak up some sunshine ( if it ever fully reappears, ha!
Love the spiral (as always!)
that scrap is so alive…
The Spin at the heart of things — atoms, galaxies, self.
The foot that grounds & sets the Being dancing. Pure delight for me on this otherwise gloomy morning. You put life back in perspective! Thank you, Jude. And I’ll take Soul-O’s advice & just relax, appreciate, and let life be.
why is it so difficult? stretching out today.
.. ah that’s so sweet ! Had me fooled just then 😂.. clever puss .. x (both of you )
we are so much the same. I stretched out next to him, no pic tho.
Purr fect 👈
