This program has been amazing. It has renewed my spirit each morning following these mantras. I so love it; and will be a committed follower. What these Mantras provide are the reminders to further develop our essential being with trust and compassion from the heart.
Lotus has many meanings derived. One is such that The lotus flower has a symbolic meaning which represents being pure in one's spirits.” There is an ancient connection to the Lotus for us all. Little did I know, I would, during this program rediscover the compassion's of adoption.
The Story of Adoption and Saving Lotus
|I'm Available for Adoption|
With support from the Loudoun County Public Library, the Loudoun County Animal Shelter hosted a story time in the Cat Adoption area of the Animal Shelter throughout September. The Shelter is located in Waterford, VA see: http://www.loudoun.gov/index.aspx?NID=91 The LCAS and all of their “Literary Cats” were celebrating National Library Month in September. Throughout the month of September; LCAS named shelter cats after literary story book characters!
My own cat curiosities lead me to various links leading from the library to the shelter to felines awaiting a new home. I initially wondered what books were being read and how many kitties has new names! And there, I found myself at the shelter, and I found Lotus.
Meeting my new Adoption
|My New Home on the Frisee Carpet - What an upgrade!|
It has been almost a week in his new digs. He is a lovely outgoing boy; very friendly; chatty and accepting without question = forgiveness. His feline temperament has somehow weathered yet another placement.
I wondered.... Would I be able to be so forgiving and accepting if returned to sender more than once? Can we forgive those imperfections either real or perceived by other humans? Lotus has innate living in the present without question and bitterness. He is not caught up in the past; and lives in the present. He went from a shelter cage to a private home; with the personality of acceptance and love, period.
