Sensation of Life: a lesson from feline philosophy

In one interview, philosopher John Gray, the author of the wonderful little book Feline Philosophy: Cats and the Meaning of Life shared this insight into the lessons we can learn about life from cats:

“Cats live for the sensation of life, not for something they might achieve or not achieve. If we attach ourselves too heavily to some overarching purpose we’re losing the joy of life. Leave all those ideologies and religions to one side and what’s left? What’s left is a sensation of life – which is a wonderful thing.”
