WILD CATS! ©
BY JO MOON
Cats belong in the wild originally. We have simply taken them away from their natural home, just as we have taken ourselves away from nature. We domesticate ourselves and our animals. Yet at some level we must feel some loss of our natural world.
I am currently looking after 3 lovely kittens who are 6 weeks old. They tear around my flat, racing up and down stairs frantically, looking for places to climb, scratch, bite and chew! Of course this is not very practical in a domestic setting. Curtains are pulled and climbed up; work surfaces walked on, carpets pulled at; plants eaten or leaves ripped; objects moved around and electrical wiring chewed. I don’t like telling the little kitties off for doing what only comes naturally to them. But I have to, otherwise my electrical equipment would break down, my belongings rip to shreds, carpets would need replacing and the plants not happy or even dead!
My kittens and cat need to be in a forest or field, where they can freely run around to their little hearts’ content. They would soon discover what was dangerous, what was good to scratch or chew and where the good places were. They may stumble and fall just as they do in my flat, but they seem so indestructible they would survive almost anything and learn. It is true, there are predators in the wild and other dangers, but is that any more dangerous than being near busy roads and other urban hazards?
I feel I am restricting their movement by having them indoors. They love the plants and a piece of tree trunk I have on the floor – they have also ripped up the remnants of a dried up Christmas tree. I need to bring the forest to them if they cannot be there. The flat is just a virtual world for them. They climb on a wooden desk which used to be a tree and walk through wooden doors which used to be trees. They see no real trees, except through the windows. I am seeing the same view with my own eyes. I am feeling the same restrictions.
We do not know it in general. We get used to our urban lives and our bodies have adapted well we think. But few of us are really healthy. We are not as healthy and fit as we could be. We are not realizing our full human potential on many levels. Through the influence of electromagnetic stress, radiation and the whole unnaturalness of town life we are restricted and contaminated. These electromagnetic fields are becoming stronger and escalating fast. Wi-Fi is readily available almost anywhere which may seem convenient for the Internet, but what is this energy doing to our bodies and general health?
It would be most natural to wake up in the morning, hug a tree, sit by a stream or dance on dewy grass. This is how Anastasia greets the day, from her home in the Taiga Forest in Siberia. She has an amazing ability to run extremely fast, leap, carry a man on her shoulders and bring up her baby with the help of a bear and other animals of the forest. All is possible in nature. Anastasia has never lived anywhere else but the Taiga and receives everything she needs from this place. The squirrels and other animals bring her nuts, seeds and berries to eat. She has no need to cook or prepare food in any way. Her body is able to adapt to any temperature therefore she has little need for clothes or shelter. She sleeps outside on the forest floor. She lives with nature. Anastasia has amazing powers and abilities. She has never been to school or studied in a conventional way yet she can speak any language and knows just about everything. She receives all her information from nature itself. That is indeed the power of living in the natural world.
This is not to say that anyone would be capable of such skills and powers by living in a forest. Anastasia is particularly unique in this way. However, the question is, what have we lost through not living in nature? And what indeed have the animals lost by being so domesticated? We are all one, and what we see in the animals around us reflects what is also happening to us.
Our minds receive information constantly in our town lives. We see billboards, read news stories, hear and see news stories, adverts, emails, texts etc etc. all day long sometimes. Is it any wonder we do not have sufficient mind space to receive other information through the natural world around us and other dimensions?!
We all have psychic centres and these are usually more closed if we are in towns and cities, watching TV, taking drugs of any kind whether legal or illegal (many would argue this point) or not taking time to sit quietly in meditation or in another spiritual practice. By turning off the TV (preferably permanently), spending more time in nature and meditating these psychic centres can re-open. You can then notice things, receive information and be more acutely aware of subtleties in the world around you. There is a whole other world out there, and its not the one we are told about in mainstream life!
This is why, it is relevant to observe our pets and animals and see their traits existing in us. We all originally lived in nature and most of us are now cut off from it. We need to retrieve those parts that are lost and spend significant time in nature when we are able. Eventually we need to return to the home that nature built for us aeons ago. It is in the shelter of woodland trees, lakes, streams, mountains, rivers and fields that we thrive naturally.

One day, there will be a positive new way forwards on this Earth where we can all be part of nature once more, thriving and growing as never before on a different land. We do not need to live like cave people or those from the past. We can create a new world with advanced alternative technology, living and growing together with the natural world around us.
