I saw the cat drinking out of the toilet. He needed water and was thirsty. I thought, “Kitty, you don’t have to drink out of the toilet. I can and will give you water out of a clean container bowl. You don’t have to drink from the toilet!”
The toilet was not designed to be drunk from. The function of the toilet is to discard waste, human elimination of waste and toxins the body can no longer use or cannot absorb. It was not designed to give back. It [the toilet] was designed to get rid of stuff, substances.
In its function to rid the home of human elimination, clean water runs from the tank into the bowl, which was designed to receive and flush, get rid of, the elimination left in it.
Just because that clean and most likely cool water flows into the bowl of the toilet does not change the function it was designed for.
So, why do we reach for things or use devices, substances or frequent places that were not designed for us?
We go to these things, places, to seek relief. Relief from whatever is ailing us. To seek answers from places or substances that were not designed to give relief or answers from. More than likely we know where to go for relief or answers, but we don’t want to go through the process, steps or journey to get where we need to be or get the answers we need and deserve.
We want short cuts. We want short cuts through the process, the work, the answers, and the journey.
I am sure the cat just wanted a quick drink, but not being patient and going to where the water feeder was to get his quick drink of water caused him to stick his face in a place that was designed for human’s butts and excrement that we eliminate.
On the flipside, the cat was thirsty. He knew he needed a drink of water. That drink of water is what was required to relieve his thirst.
He was away from his usual spot to get water, but knew where there was some nearby.
Instead of making the trip all the way around the house to get to his water bowl, he did whatever it took to get that drink of water. I hear “by any means necessary” being chanted in the back of my mind.
The cat saw the challenge, took quick decisive action and provided a solution quenching his thirst.
What are we willing to do to meet our goals, overcome our obstacles/challenges? By what means are we willing to use? What measure to take? What quick and decisive action are we willing to implement?
That is a question I have to ask myself everyday, and one I must produce the answer to post haste!
