What´s the point of it all?

DSCN0911       (The place where it “all happens”; or usually,  “doesn´t happen”!).


Mr Midnight and Sir Winston were both sitting on some heavy boulders which had been placed as part of  the decoration for the school  parking bay  opposite our house.  It was getting towards  the end of the  school summer holidays and understandably, the school and its surroundings were empty of people.
It wasn´t as warm as it had been, and the long awaited cool air had helped  reduce the humid, clamminess of the previous week.
MM-Avatar      Not much happening today is there Sir Winston?
SW-Avatar      I don´t know. I´ve got my eye on that leaf down there. It hasn´t moved an inch for ages. If I keep a vigil, I may be lucky and it could move towards our  boulders.
MM-Avatar      That´s an  exciting pastime  Sir Winston.

Watching a leaf eh?  What ever next.

You are  purrculiar sometimes. You´ll have your beady eyes resting on the  bus stop sign soon, expecting it to also move in some direction.
SW-Avatar      Sometimes it does move Mr Midnight; but ever so slightly. I´ve worked  out that it´s probably because of the air masses which sometimes move ever so quickly, particularly when  we have those terrible storms.
MM-Avatar       It´s a tough life, eh Sir Winston. Our inquisitive nature sometimes keeps us occupied with the most trivial of things.  I want to  pawtake in many things, especially those that raise my inquisitive attention, but  is that the meaning of life?
What do you think happens when we are allowed to leave this place which the humans call “planet earth”?
SW-Avatar       I´m not quite sure. I don´t think any “being” really knows what happens when we depart,  but I often have interesting sensations running through my body  which make me feel that there is something out there much greater than I can imagine.
MM-Avatar      That´s probably your stomach rumbling  SIr Winston.
SW-Avatar      No seriously. It´s kind of weird. I sometimes have notions of all things somehow being connected – even myself being connected to Mr Dog next door.

DSCN0663      Sounds terrible Sir Winston.  I´d get that seen to if I were you. Fancy having thoughts like that. It doesn´t sound normal – but then again, who´s normal  these days anyway?
SW-Avatar      Can you remember, daddy once wrote a strange book called “Nice place, shame about the human race”   and one of the chapters was entitled “Death”.
MM-Avatar      Great title for a chapter of a book!. Whatever was he thinking? I told you that nobody´s normal these days didn´t I; not even daddy.   🙂
SW-Avatar      Each chapter had a famous quote and the quote for the “Death” chapter was from an Ashley Montagu. It goes:-   “The idea is to die young as late as possible”
That´s a great line isn´t it?
MM-Avatar      Fantastic Sir Winston.  I´m just not sure if having a chapter entitled “Death” is appropriate. I´ll have to speak with daddy about it.  He does have some barmy ideas sometimes.
SW-Avatar       Most probably because of your strong influence upon him 🙂
MM-Avatar       I believe that life is a little bit like a bus ride. Your leaf lying next to the  bus-stop sign must have  inspired me.
SW-Avatar       I beg your pardon. How can life be compared to that  of  sitting on one of those large, smelly moving things?
MM-Avatar       Well, it´s a human method of moving from A to B and when humans sit on a bus, the bus is either  full of people who know, or do not  know one another.
The journey starts. Landscapes pass by and conversations get in full-swing (or don´t get in full-swing). The journey ends.
The soul enters our world (the bus), along its journey, it takes in various sources of information, and then the soul leaves the planet (end of bus ride – soul leaves bus).  🙂

Experiences would have been gained for a possible  future journey at some other time.
It´s simple isn´t it?
SW-Avatar       It´s certainly another way of viewing  things Mr Midnight, and if I also observe life with   your simplicity, I would add  that life is more like the school over the way.
MM-Avatar       Fire away Sir Winston. Explain yourself.
SW-Avatar       Some humans enjoy school and others do not. That is a fact equal to life in itself. Some get on with their lives and some find life terribly difficult.
Daddy once told me that  school is a place where primarily,  young people  attain knowledge and social skills.
The soul steps forth onto the planet (enters school),  learns lessons and teachings, or it doesn´t,  and at the end of the school day, it goes home (departs from our planet) with the latest input.
When having departed, the soul may have had an enjoyable experience (at school) or not, but the lessons (of life), either positive or negative,  should have helped raise the soul to a higher plane.
MM-Avatar       Your purrception of things  is similar to mine SIr Winston. I wonder if other cats have the same opinion?
SW-Avatar       Most human beings believe that when school finishes (school of life)  – then that´s it.  At the  end of a life, there´s nothing left.  Just darkness.  Many humans believe that if they´ve been good  (which depends upon the definition of “good” and as we are already aware,  many human beings seem to have trouble displaying their goodness)   🙂  they may get so see some white light and heavenly flying objects – which apparently, goes on  forever!

Or  they may have been bad humans  and will have to go “downstairs” and  receive the dosis of hot and red lights.
MM-Avatar       Looks like it´s going to get a bit full downstairs.  🙂

What an unbearable approach to life. What´s the point of it all?

Both seem to be places of boredom – still cats like boredom don´t they Sir Winston.
I just can´t really see the point of maintaining  such a “logic” . It all seems to be a waste of time.
SW-Avatar       We must respect what others wish to believe  Mr Midnight.   Although nobody has ever been to those places of either white or red lights, many humans wish to believe in such  places. If  such philosophy helps humans then I suppose it´s a good thing
There are  also  human beings who believe that they have to keep going  back to school each time  they have departed.
MM-Avatar      I am aware of this phenomena.  It´s called “reincarnation”. I heard daddy talking to our  odd neighbour the other day, you know, the human who looks after  Mr Dog.
Such a belief  would certainly explain the “soul-teachings” thing.  The soul  keeps going back to school with which to develop, grow in wisdom and move on.  I just don´t know what happens when it has moved on as far as it can go.  More white lights I suppose.  😉
SW-Avatar       Nobody really  knows Mr Midnight. That´s the fun of it all.
Some even believe  that their soul keeps  going  back to  school  disguised as another being, just for the fun of the experience!
MM-Avatar       You mean I could come back as another animal and look exactly like Mr Dog next door?
No thank you!  He´s got terrible habits! 🙂
SW-Avatar      There´s worse Mr Midnight. You could come back as a human being.
MM-Avatar       Crumbs!!!!!   What a mess.
I suppose we´ll all just have to wait and see. 🙂

  1. Mr M: “Looks like it´s going to get a bit full downstairs.” …. ha ha ha ….
    Sir W: “There´s worse Mr Midnight. You could come back as a human being.” …. can’t stop laughing!

    Thank you lads and daddy for sharing your infinite wisdom!

    • Glad you liked our post.
      Sir Winston had second thoughts about posting it but Mr Midnight thought that some of you out there may be able to identify with it. Daddy was guided by Mr Midnights insight (as usual) 🙂
      Best regards from the three of us. 😉

  2. “Nobody really knows Mr Midnight. That´s the fun of it all.” Right on, Sir Winston!

    “You mean I could come back as another animal and look exactly like Mr Dog next door?” And the awful part of it, Mr. Midnight, is when you happen to come back as a homeless dog and need to fend for yourself. You will learn the grungy art of scavenging–a great canine talent–but will terribly miss daddy’s nice place! But it’s not sure you’d remember you were daddy’s before, either.

    Daddy’s got some barmy ideas, indeed, Lads, but I personally like these barmy ideas because they help humans stretch their mortal abilities, discover something precious and endearing, and in the end a better way of life. But you see, we humans are strangely forgetful. Esp. when taxes and bills arrive–and the pockets are malnourished–we often forget most everything else except the duty to survive economically and physically.

    Lads, ask daddy for some more barmy ideas. I think that’s the point of it all. A quest! 😉

    • The boys are now ecastatic. It tookl me the best part of ten minutes to calm them down again!
      Your comments are truly valued; not because of you praising our efforts, indeed we are also open to criticism, but because of the three of us being aware that you understand what we are trying to do.
      Thank you very, very much for your kind words.
      By the way, Mr Midnight seems to think that he was a poor doggy in one of his past lives but he cannot really remember. I suppose everything is possible.
      The three of us believe that our work is for all the poor, trapped, helpless beings of this world (and for those who don´t have to rough it this time around) 🙂
      Best regards from Mr Midnight, Sir Winston and myself.and once again, thanks for your beautiful lines.

      • I could imagine their playful excitement! Most esp. perhaps if I gave them something tangible and round and that makes some curiously familiar noise. Ding-ding-ding! 😉 But, Lads, they are not to be eaten.

        I do appreciate and value your work. And every time I see animal pets, they readily put a smile on my face, so Mr Midnight’s and Sir Winston’s pics are natural attractions. Of course, it is always nice being here, sitting back and enjoying what you all are talking about. 🙂

      • Thank you for all the positive encouragement. Sometimes, I feel we are over-doing it and occasionally, I wonder if we should continue writing our stuff. However, because of the positive feedback we receive, Mr Midnight suggested that I try and publish our blog in book form at some later stage. I´ll have to think about it, but If I do decide to do something with our blog, I thought it would be nice to have a small list of positive comments listed somewhere in the back with which to aid credibility. It´s early days yet and we may decide otherwise (depends if I give-up or not) 🙂
        Thank you for your valued comments.
        Mr Midnight says “Meoooow” and Sir Winston says, “purrrrrrrrrrr”. I say, “thank you for following us still”.
        All the best.
        P.S. By the way, I have visited your site also. Not that you think we´re not interested or anything. I´m having trouble finding time to read everything (excuses) but from what I´ve read, you mustr keep up the good work. 🙂

  3. You have no idea how much your words have encouraged me. Thanks so much too for visiting my blog. Your inspiring autographs there are enough to keep me smiling. 🙂

    Wow, Mr Midnight’s suggestion is very interesting. That sounds exciting! I hope you’d consider it. 🙂

    • We´ll try and keep you entertained. Our next post is already finished and we shall release it sometime next week. It´s a small, funny story. Hope you like it. The three of us wish you a very happy weekend. Until then, bye bye for now. 🙂

"The lads" and myself would appreciate your feedback.
