According to Buddha

The moment we become passive in relaxation — slipping into the subconscious and letting our minds wander in restless thoughts or drift into daydreaming — we actually diminish our level of relaxation. This is why deep meditation, even though it requires great energy and focus, is so much more relaxing than sleep.

Cat + Dog ~ iPhone shots in Edmonton, Alberta ~ October 2017

  1. Morning Hedy, I really like the 2nd and 3rd shots and how they are broken onto 2 photos. Nicely done.

  2. Lol. Animals can yawn so shamelessly from the very bottom of their souls 🙂

  3. You have a model for this one. How cute! I hope that your week is going well. Cheers!

    • she’s sweet…and always looking for new spaces to explore…and we live in the land of coats…so they can pile up 😉 smiles from snowy etown…happy teaching day Chris! 😀

  4. They do do relaxation so well. Beautiful shots Hedy!

  5. Cats are such “naturals” at stretching and relaxing. A lot of pups are too…I learn a lot from them! This one is adorable! Interesting quote–I needed to see this today after many nights of bad dreams–it makes so much sense. My brain needs to relax! Thank you so much for sharing! Hope you’re warm on this cold and white (gorgeous!) day. ❤

    • i think about sleep, rest, naps, yoga nidra…and i know when i rest…it’s best…and yes fatigue from dreams…i do do yoga…it some of what the cat teaches me…

      here’s one totem meaning i see them in her

      patience, waiting for the right moment to act
      independence, yet enjoying social connections
      spirit of adventure, courage
      deep, relaxed connection with self
      healing from the inside out
      curiosity, exploration of the unknown or the unconscious

      been out and yes bam winter! i love the white and fresh air…nice blue today…many smiles sleep deep Raven Wolfe ❤ ^_^

  6. Cat study! A wonderful thing.

  7. Oh I am puddle for cats. I think no being relaxes the way a cat can. The opening two shots are especially evocative.

    • i agree…me too…yes Image result for cat sleep apparently 16 to 20 hours a day, typically…thank you for saying the ones that spoke to you…appreciated 😀 have a relaxing weekend.

  8. that’s a BIG yawn

  9. Nothing like a cat to show us how to relax, deeply relax
    love all these photos Hedy,
    now it’s time to relax

  10. Oh oh meow! I just loved this post … such a beautiful kitty and so comfortable!

  11. Thank you Hedy for a charming post. I just forwarded it to Daughter#2 who’s currently in Jakarta, taking a 2 week meditation course. Vipassa I think? Trying to make sense of a meaningless world…
    Merci.
