One day, I got a call from a friend who was always feeding cats that showed up on her doorstep. She was concerned about a very special light orange tiger cat that had won her heart and whom she affectionately called Cooper.
Cooper normally showed up every day, like clockwork, but it had been a week since she had last seen him and she feared he had died. He’d been ill and she was planning to take him to the vet, but he disappeared the very same day they were due to go. Funny how they know these things!
As I tuned in to Cooper, I sensed he was in a state of bliss. He had just left this earthly plane and was in the vastness beyond, exploring new territories. He gave me a picture of “graduating with a badge of honor”. Being free of concerns about his body, he was at peace and held no grudges.
Cooper communicated to me that life was “just a game”, where we are all inter-connected. Each one of us is part of the tapestry of life, each woven into it our own way, and having our own color of thread. His words of wisdom for this realm were to “love all you can".
Oddly, towards the end of the session, Cooper gave me the impression of singing “take me out to the ball game, take me out to the ball game” over and over. I knew it was important, so I shared it with her. Not understanding what it meant, she turned to ask her boyfriend if he knew. His jaw dropped and he looked at her with amazement. Home alone just two weeks before, he had been singing that same song over and over again out of boredom.
Life is just a game!
