Learning life lessons from my cat. “You create what you fear.” He is relatively new to the household. The other two cats have not ever interacted with him in a threatening manner, only curiously. But he is so afraid, his motto apparently is, “The best defense is a good offense.” Therefore, he creates violence and conflict by following his fear and allowing it to rule. If he would remain at peace in himself, there could be peace in his (and our) outside world!
