Diary: April 28th, 2019

Hi, this is Shire. Thank you very much for coming to my room today♪

It has been a week since my cat passed away last Saturday evening. I was looking at my cat’s empty, dead body and thinking about her all day long on the Easter Sunday. I guess I’ll never forget the day since everyone in the Christian community celebrates the day with joy and Spring happiness. I’m hoping that my cat would enjoy the taste of the beautiful celebration as well as the complete freedom from the physical world.

I’ve been living with her and another boy cat (who passed away 2 years ago) for more than 15 years. Living with cats has been pretty normal for me so that all my physical life including my plans for band tours, short trips and vacations have always been considered their safety as the first priority.

Since the last week, I’ve started re-organizing and cleaning my room. I did throw out many of cat-related goods including an old cat tower, carrying case, many toys, litter boxes, etc. It’s surprising how my room gets and keeps cleaner only after a week… no cat hair, no litter stuff, no cat nails, no vomiting remains on the floor.

I started planning for my short vacation trip (about 10 days) as well. Yes, I won’t need to worry about asking a cat-sitter anymore. I can stay away as long as I wish without worrying someone waiting for me at home anymore.

It is a big change. It may be bigger than what I am feeling right now.

So, I’ve been talking to my advisor a lot in Shamballa in order to keep the memories fresh since I am, in the physical world, soooo easy to forget things quickly. I guess I tend not to spend my sense energy to stabilize such moments/memories against physical remains.

Yesterday, I submit a request to transfer a new, available unit in my apartment community. I’m not sure how long it will take to find an available room, but this can be another big move forward in my physical life. Exciting.

  1. Hi Shire, I was browsing in your previous publications… I found this where you talk about your dead kitty and the fact that you got rid of everything that was your cats. I have been living with cats for more than twenty years now, sometimes one of them Leaves for cat’s heaven, but then we welcome another abandoned or found cat. I could not live without cats. They are the huge source of positive energy and keep me so much company… Staying without a cat would be impossible for me. Certainly it is very sad when they die, but perhaps the Japanese mentality is very different from ours.
    A hug 🙂 claudine

    1. Thanks a lot for your comment, Claudine! Well, some of my friends (American & Japanese) are like you who always live with cats. They tell me they can never live without cats! When my other cat (I had 2 cats initially) passed away 2 years ago, it was sad but was not so bad since I still had one cat with me. She and I became really close after the first one passed which made me feel more sad when she left in this time. I think (at least for a while) I would like to live with the reminiscence of my beloved cats since I could not spend enough time with them when they were around (I was too busy musician to stay home long enough). Thanks again♪ -Shire
