1. Not governed by a foreign power; self-governing.
2. Free from the influence, guidance, or control of another or others; self-reliant: an independent mind.
3. Not determined or influenced by someone or something else
Can we in this day and age really claim independence? When so much of our society is so very influenced by almost everything? Some may even be influenced by the words they are reading now. Mass media is a massive force for influence- companies spend millions of dollars every year to insure you are influenced to buy their products. Others billions to influence the general population to believe a certain idea, value or belief is the ‘right’ way to be, think, do and act. In my opinion, which is only that, an opinion, the way to independence lies in developing your own self- Free from the influence, guidance, or control of another or others. Think for yourself, believe only a fraction of what you see and accept as truth only a fraction of that. Question your beliefs and what motivated you to believe it. Be willing to release any belief that no longer serves your purpose, your highest calling or feels healthy for you. Take back your financial independence by not buying into the idea that you ‘must have’ the latest- whatever. Take back your emotional independence by not allowing any influence which limits you or defines who you are to exist in your world. Create an independent mind- one that is not controlled by anyone or anything, ever. ♥ Robin ♥
It never really goes away, sometimes it is not so bad, other times you almost forget, and yet others it is like a knife being slowly turned in your soul. Years pass, life goes on, and yet in some ways it still stays the same. Would I trade this feeling for never having had you in my life? Not for all the money in the world, ever. Some people make an indelible print on your soul, in a good way, and they will never be forgotten, ever. So while the pain does ebb and flow, overall and for the most part what remains are the happy, wonderful memories that are truly priceless. The ones that make you laugh and chase the melancholy away. ♥ Robin ♥
In all the worlds not yet discovered and all the races too old to name. Forgotten for a time was once the common knowledge from whence we all came. Star seed, child of the Universe birthed upon a distant shore. Silence the mind, to hear the heart, awaken to the call. For we came here with a purpose, a reason for being alive at this cycle of the turning age. To assist this race of man in remembering the truth of this life they gauge. Beings of pure light and love, lost in the darkness of struggle and rage. Upon this time in the age of man, hope has manifested upon this world once more. Bright beings of light from distant shores, we are bound to you, and this old version of Earth, no more. So now upon this day so fair we say to you and yours. Begin to be who you always were, the light of love galore.

We were mothers, once. We raised our babies, did the best we could to give them a safe, warm, happy place to be little. We cleaned them up, fed them, and watched over them, guiding them to be the best little ones we could. We taught them all the things they needed to know to be good boys and girls, got them ready to go out into that big, wide world out there and watched as they left, one by one.
Until only we were left, waiting.
For some reason we will never understand, humans will adopt little baby cats, but overlook us, the not so baby cats. We all grow up. That little one will be as big as we are, sooner than you can imagine. Some of us are really only baby cats ourselves, less than a year on this earth. Yet already we have been part of a couple, a Mom, seen babies leave, some of us have even seen our babies die, and yet we still wait. We wait with hope in our hearts and so much love to give. We will be truly grateful to find that forever home. If only someone will find it in their heart to give us the chance we deserve.
There is something magical about the bond that develops between an adopted animal and a human being. That magic is multiplied when the animal has been waiting for love and the human too. Both have a mutual respect, understanding and appreciation for each other.
We want to wish all the Mother’s out there a very Happy Mothers Day. This includes all the Foster Moms, the Father-Moms, anyone who fills the role of “Mom” for a little one.
We also want to ask that you please give us a chance, please consider adopting an older shelter pet, be it a Mom-Cat or not. We have so much life and love to give. So very much.
So here we sit, still. Waiting…..
Perhaps the most influential thing is not what you say, or do, rather is the intention and attitude you have about any given situation. Often it can be seen that several people in similar situations, one is doing amazing, not so much for the other one. Looking deeper, noticeable to those who look beneath the surface, there is a subtle difference in their energies. One, always has the vision of the desired outcome first and foremost, seeing the end result through the maze of obstacles placed in the pathway. The other, gets focused more on the obstacles and looses focus on the goal, this robs the power of manifestation that we all possess, to a greater or lesser degree. So maybe the key is not so much luck, or chance, or even destiny. Maybe it is the determination to overcome that in the end is the greatest manifestation of all.

Random, meaningless events that happen nonetheless can have a silver linking hidden amongst them. It is this very thing that drives and fuels some of the greatest inventions of our age. The ‘mistake’ that led to such miracles as silly putty being created…. look into that one some time, great story. Most often though it is the quiet times, that lead you to a deeper understanding and appreciation for the myriad blessings a,d opportunities this life can hold. Just invent the vision for yourself to see pas the appearances to the gem hidden in the loose rocks. The diamond in the rough just may be the spark needed to fan the flames of creativity and fuel the desires of a new generation. Or, it may just be a pretty piece of glass. Either way, in their own way, both are worthy of notice and discovery. Randomness is not so very random, it would seem. ♥ Robin ♥
