Waking up

Junah Cat was not born in the House by the Garden. He was born somewhere else. But when he was born, the first thing he remembered was hearing sounds, kind of a vibration that woke him up. He knew he was alive, but his eyes weren’t open at first. All he could do was eat and sleep. But once his eyes opened, he started finding out about his body and the world around him.

He learned about the world inside him. He knew when he was hungry, thirsty, sleepy, and awake. He knew when he was curious or wanting to play, when he was feeling cuddly, and especially when he wanted to purr.

He also learned about the world outside him.  He liked seeing new objects, hearing the many sounds around him, climbing on chairs and beds, and especially smelling foods and flowers.  He also liked eating, sitting in the sun, and chasing things that moved. He found out that he liked stretching in all kinds of postures as well as licking his paws to clean his ears. Of course, he found out about jumping, and pouncing, and even falling. Luckily, he never got hurt.

Life finally got to the point where he wasn’t a kitten any more. Junah was a bigger cat, ready to explore the world.

Then one day, the three sisters came to his birthplace. Sister Sara played some wonderful music on her guitar; Sister Laka sang a flowing melody, and Sister Duma murmured quietly in a low voice. It reminded him of the first sounds he heard, the ones that woke him up. They took Junah home to the House by the Garden. That’s when the adventures really started!

Junah’s purr:  Knowledge is gained from inside and outside.

Junah Tales: Episode 1: Preface & Prologue

Thanks for following my writing. Here is your first episode of Junah Tales.

Let me introduce you to Junah Cat and the Three Sisters!

Episode 1:
Preface & Prologue

Junah Tales by M.R. Neer
Episode 1

Preface
This is a tale about Junah Cat. He was an ordinary black-and-white cat who lived in the House by the Garden with the three sisters. But he was different because of his purr-sistence in learning.

He had many adventures in the garden that helped him purr-ceive life in a new way. You are invited to travel with Junah through these tales and listen for the purr that purr-vades each story.

Junah discovered The Way of Purr-fection.  He simply purr-sued his natural curiosity in a pure way! That became his purr-pose. He felt it would lead him to the great joy of making his purr purr-manent.

These stories are really parables, or as Junah would say, purr-ables, for you—some fables that illustrate what it takes to reach “the purr that purr-petuates.”

Listen now for the purr. . . .

Prologue  
The clouds parted. The air was full of the buzz of life. The bright light of the sun reflected onto the clear cool still lake.

The three sat by the lake, looking within.

One, adorned in white, spoke with a celestial voice, “Now is the time.”

“Yes,” agreed the one robed in pink, “the knowledge must flow to all.”

“What has been secret,” intoned the one in red, “must be known.”

They looked at each other, then at the still water. It started to ripple from their attention. A spot of black reflected there, then white, then a form, then breath filled the form.

“He will be called Junah,” they said together, “and he will know.”

They kept looking within the still waters, and more forms appeared. A garden, a forest, a river. Till it was done.

Then they closed their eyes and rested. They were glad.

 Stay tuned!  Episode 2 will come your way in two weeks.
