Cultivando alegria no curso de inglês.  (English follows)

No dia 05 de julho, finalizei o meu curso de inglês conforme condição da faculdade para iniciar meu curso em setembro (mais detalhes, ler vivência “Minha Jornada no Canadá”). Foram 9 semanas, estudando das 9hs às 16:30 diariamente (exceto fins de semana) o que me deixava bem ocupado.

No início, eu acreditava que seria fácil, pois as pessoas consideravam meu nível de inglês muito bom. No entanto, acabei melhorando muito meu inglês. Percebi que cometia muitos erros e, consequentemente, me esforcei para aprender ao máximo. Durante o curso, fui recebendo prece de Oyashikiri sempre que possível.

Houve momentos que senti pressão e tive algumas preocupações (por exemplo, busca por apartamento para alugar), e isto começou a afetar meu desempenho uma vez que estava mais preocupado com resultado do que aprender. Em resumo, eu estava perdendo a alegria de realizar o curso de inglês. Como peelista, eu notei que era o momento certo para buscar os ensinamentos da PL e praticar o que aprendi ao longo dos anos: ter gratidão pela oportunidade e orar para cultivar entusiasmo e criatividade.

Com essa prática, tudo mudou e passei a realmente sentir alegria no curso, até mesmo meus colegas da turma tinha prazer de estudar comigo. Sem dúvidas, foi uma experiência gratificante, pois pude conhecer pessoas de diferentes países e fazer grandes amigos.

No último dia do curso, estes novos amigos demonstraram muito carinho que até fiquei sem palavras. Ficamos muito próximos por compartilharmos os mesmos desafios e mesmos objetivos, e assim um apoiava o outro.

Eu realmente agradeço à Deus e ao Oshieoyá-Sama. Os ensinamentos da PL são um tesouro que faz total diferença na vida de uma pessoa, como esta vivência.

Agradeço a todos pelo tempo e atenção em ler esta vivência. Que Deus abençoes a todos com alegria e paz.

Bringing joy to everyday classes.

On July 5th, I finished my English course as a condition to start the Algonquin College (please, more details about it, see the previous testimony “My journey to Canada”). I had studied for 9 weeks from 9 am to 4:30 pm every day (except for weekends) and that kept me very busy.

In the beginning, I thought I would handle it easily, once people considered my level of English as very good. Actually, it turned out that I have gotten lots of improvement. I realized that I still had many mistakes and, as a result, I did my best to study and learn as much as I could. During the course, I had been receiving Oyashikiri prayer whenever was possible.

There were times that I felt pressure and some concerns appeared (e.g looking for a place to rent), and that began to affect negatively on my performance since I was worried about only the results instead of the learning process. In summary, I was losing the joy and excitement to go to school. As a PL member, I noticed that it was the right moment put in prqactice PL teachings that I’ve learned over the years: everyday express appreciation for the opportunity and pray to bring joy and be creative.

Doing that was a game-changer because I really enjoyed my time at the language school and even my classmates were so pleased to have me there. Definitely, it was a great experience because I have met many people from other countries and I have made valuable friends.

On my graduation day, these new friends showed so much care for me that I became speechless. In the end, we have created a bond between us because some of them shared the same challenges and the same goals as mine, so we could support each other and we can now help each other.

I do have appreciation for God and Oshieoya Sama. The PL teachings are a treasure that can make a huge difference in one’s life like the testimony above.

Thank you for taking this moment to read this. May God bless us all with joy and peace.


Thank you for sharing Yoshi, (Yoshizumi Terada) have a good day everyone… Enjoy a great start to a brand new week!

no tropical blues,

just simple flowing waves,

happily rolling in to cool

on a hot humid day

when no one wants to come out to play

Little flower look at you

bleached by the sun, with only rocks to protect you

how brave you are, standing there all alone

gosh I am so glad that I  came across you today

you’ve made me smile and given me pause

to reflect on how,  anything is possible*.

Thank you little flower,

thank you.

Value your Intuition !  When you suddenly have an A-ha! moment, or when a thought pops into your mind, it is God sending you a message.  As soon as you notice something, you should act upon it right away

HELLO ?  anyone home,

years have come and gone,

somehow, somewhere along the way,

the grass,. just grew and grew,

no one walked this way.

now there is no path to this door

it waits patiently to be opened again

so please come again another day

It was a wonderful sunny day.  On my own, I decided to take a detour from my usual way home.

IMG_20190717_124750_resized_20190717_023404377

The heat of the day meant that there was no one else around, I had the pier to myself.  Time to listen to the sounds of nothing in particular, just to enjoy.  I stood still, but the world around me kept moving.

There is something peaceful about being able to enjoy an area, that at other times could be very active.

It was hot, but I was relaxed, and I enjoyed being by the water.  Me who is not a person who does well in the heat. What was pleasant was the feeling of doing something different, taking the side road, and allowing the moments to Just Happen.

Todays calendar 18th. said  You will feel better when you take immediate action..  that is what I did yesterday, and I was so wonderfully rewarded.  The fact that my computer has been out of commission for a few days,and the other petty annoyances, disappeared.  In fact, it was rather a very enjoyable day and evening.

See the boat off in the distance, that was my worries and cares, drifting off into parts unknown.   happiness is, taking time to BE.

what happens when

pl parking lot

you are being careless or overconfident ..

Even though you may have put your best effort into doing something you still may have made mistakes.  that is why it is important to always work with a prayerful mind.

Good morning dear friends,

Our surroundings play such an important part in our lives, yet, too often we put off what needs attention, or doing, till ????

I admit to having done just that thee past months, and now.. guess what.. aaaghghgh I have to clean up.  It would have been so much simpler had I done it as the days went along, but no…. aghhhhhh hands to the heavens…. “will I ever get this right”

Have a grand day my lovelies, rain or shine, we are ONE.  You and me… travelers on this road of life.  You make it much more interesting. You do!

Life is to be lived, life is to be shared.  Never fear saying, you care. Your smile is worth barrels of sunshine that will last for miles.

Oyashikiri
