I’ve always thought of cats as connoisseurs of comfort—great role models for us humans! They seem to do everything with effortless ease, especially sleeping. 🙂

Here are some of Spirit’s and my thoughts about the lessons cats can teach us:

  • Be your own person—learn not to care what others think of you.
  • Rise to your challenges. If you don’t catch that mouse or bird, know you will the next time.
  • Relax—treat yourself to comfort whenever you can. You deserve it.
  • Acknowledge the humans around you, but do not be overwhelmed by them.
  • Seek quiet places when the world gets too noisy for you.
  • Follow your own path, and no one else’s. In doing so, you know you are teaching others to do the same.
  • Honor yourself in all ways, knowing if you do not, no one else is going to do it for you.
  • Be willing to venture fearlessly into the unknown, embracing change as you go along.
  • Be curious about all life. There is always something new and exciting to explore.
  • Be fully present in every moment.
  • Be fully aware of what is right here, in front of you, right now. Forget everything else.
  • Know you do not need to be doing something all the time. Learn to just be. Being is its own justification.
  • Above all, love yourself—no one else is going to do it for you. And have fun! That’s what life is all about.


Here’s a wonderful spiritual teacher, Sadhguru, talking about how to live our lives with ease. He also has some wise advice on just living.
