Gone missing

My cat Buddy has gone missing again, I haven’t seen him for three whole months. In fact, this time he’s been gone so long that when he comes around he sneaks through the open kitchen door, steals food, and runs off if I call him. He doesn’t even remember that this is his home, where he lived for two years! He’s forgotten that he could just come through the front door without any fear at all and take as much as he pleases.

Similar are we when we’ve been away from the Divine for too long. We take a little inspiration, a little warmth, a loving conversation… then we run off and hide. We don’t stay long.

We’ve forgotten that it’s our home, too.
