Challenge of the day: love without judgment

sakhara cat teachings

Animal communicator Nedda Wittels:

Sakhara showed me a mother cat nursing her new born kittens.  First, she asked me to observe.  As the momma licked her young and cleaned them thoroughly with her tongue, Sakhara said, “Love Without Judgment.”

“How is that different from Love Without Conditions?” I asked.

“Always so full of questions,” my teacher exclaimed with a shake of her head and a swish of her tail, as if asking questions were a crime.

“A mother cat will kill a baby that is deformed, unhealthy, or in danger.  She make no judgment.  She does this act lovingly to prevent harm to them, to prevent them from suffering.  This is Love Without Judgment.”

I still didn’t understand.  “Humans don’t believe in doing this,” I responded.  “Humans born with physical deformities and other limitations that are not a completely healthy body and mind are allowed to live.  We love and nurture and take care of them.  And some of them turn out to be geniuses and artists, and make amazing contributions to human society.”

“Yes,” agreed Sakhara.  “But I’m not teaching you about humans.  I’m teaching you about Cats. This is not instinct. It is deliberate, conscious choice in the cat.  This is how the mother protects her young.  She has no doubts whatsoever that the kitten’s spirit will not be harmed by her choice.  Humans spend too much time thinking and too little time loving and knowing the truth of things.”

It’s not wise, I have found, to argue with a teacher when the point of view they are sharing doesn’t match my own.  Clearly cats believe that what they are doing is correct.  Sakhara was asking me to move out of judgment – to not assume that what is appropriate for one species is appropriate for another – to accept that the ways of life are infinite and perfect.  A very challenging lesson.

In a way animals choose to see the light, even when we are being silly or stupid as arrogant humans and abuse them. That is why they always forgive us, why they have forgiven all the deeds humanity has done to them, already before they were born.


All life is made of light.

All else is an illusion…

Shine yours.

You were made to shine.
