almost paradise

Sounds of commercial enterprise, busy traffic, and every day hustle and bustle was a tad distracting, for now, this oasis is there for me to enjoy.

Greetings every one, Que lindo dia!

When is a mound of earth, not just a heap of dug up and discarded earth.  When I find it and love it!!!  No this is not the same picture of the other day, this is the same mound, but I am standing at a different place and closer …

How often have you heard me say, two people looking at the very same landscape, will not see the same things.  Nor will their attention be drawn to the same area, or focus point,  it is impossible.

Just as I see life my way, and you see life in your own way.  we live and experience life very differently, even though we share the same blue skies, maybe we even live in the same part of the world, in close proximity.

Life is different for each and every one of us.  How we live, our acceptance of the challenges and opportunities, that is also unique to “us”.  That is why it (life) is so interesting, every day is a new opportunity to discover something new.

IMG_0657The other day, I drove by a work site, and saw the mounds of earth, with their new growth.  It rocked with me  I loved it.  So much so, that I went back and drove into the construction site, to take pictures.

My very own treasure chest, the dry earth, the cracks, loved it all. I really do marvel at the way nature provides me with such wonders.  actually it is for everyone, but some how I don’t think everyone gets as chuffed up as I do about such things.

To have had a macro lens I would have been up there trying to catch every nook and cranny that took my fancy.

We are all different, we all take in the world around us in our own way.  That is what makes the environment and the populations in it, so intriguing and inspiring.

so natural so inviting, so far away,

5 a,m, here, now, the whole house is stirring  there is nothing to do but get up and start the day.

Bom dia, bonjour, allo, there is no worries that there will be few hours in my day.  I have plenty  hours stretching out before me, no excuses to not getting more work done in the clearing up, cleaning out of my physical spaces.

Btw I have not cropped or changed the pictures, I am using them just the say my cousin Brian sent them to me.  He and Jon are honeymooning, I get to reap the rewards of their wonderful pictures  they travel from place to place.  There is something to be said of the arm-chair traveller, no packing, no jostling at busy airports, no line ups, etc.. At some time or other we have all been there.

Oh dear I am going to have to look at just what is I that box on the top shelf.  I am sure you have all had that experience too. Life is full of these little “treats”  reminder to self.. Find the happy in all that you do, to change direction I thought I would go make the bed, There I discovered a big lump !

he graciously got himself up and went somewhere else to have his lie in.  Very considerate.

It is now going on seven, I have been successful in removing some of the clutter, but fear not, there is still more for me to do once I take this lot away.  happy finding I found where I had put my sloth stamps away.

PL Principle #1  I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto into all I say and do (sincerity)

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things

To members of the PL community, tomorrow is the 11th, we will be celebrating Ancestors Day, service will be at 10 a.m.

Have a great day everyone, if your day is almost over.  I trust it was a good one for you.

I pray for the happiness and well BEing of all.  We are all ONE.

Wednesday

alexandria 8.4.eTravel down an old country road on a lazy afternoon just two old friends, out for a drive. A country lass and an urban miss.  The old hydro lines are what caught my eye.  We stopped so I could get a shot.  We were not that far off the beaten track, yet, the fields of green, and the old lines, gave me a feeling of another time and place,.

Best of all I was with someone who had grown up in the country, and loved the fields of crops and the newly cut hay just as much as I did.  We would sigh with contentment when we passed peaceful gathering of cows enjoying the shade of sprawling trees  sheltered by outcrops of large boulders and rocks.

Too often I am traveling down a major highway or road to a destination, this was a just because drive.  No deadline, no specific time frame, just a drive, with a stop for lunch at a marina along the way. talking was optional.

alexandrria 8,4,18Be kind to yourself.  Make time for you.  Lazy summer days are few and far between when we live a busy lifestyle.

That day we had mostly sunshine, but the rain did fall, we got the black rolling clouds, and vivid display of lightning.  Made our day complete.  Have you ever smelled the lush green meadows after a rainfall?  Experienced the return of the sun and clear blue skies after an explosive down pour.  the change in temperatures during all this variety of weather.  Mother Nature works her magic in very special ways.

Get out and enjoy the day, make today a special day.

avatars that were in a virtual world.  why.  to be there to respond to needs of the community that expressed interest in learning more about living the PL way.  I have come to realize that there are not that many places one can go, where it is drama/stress free.

Unfortunately these young men were assigned back to Japan the dream of exploring a new frontier went with them.

Unable at the time to get in to explore, and get to know more of the creative spirits inworld, I had to bench my idea of expanding the church philosophy via a venue that spans world wide.

The world is now full of gamers, I doubt I could count all the platforms.  Hours are spent each day on one platform or another, whether in war games, sci fi, or social media.  I noted on the telly the other day that there is even a series that is a take off on the alternate realities.(worlds)  Many people are deciding that they prefer the virtual worlds, where they can select and change their worlds including meeting more people who share in their “vision” of what living in a world should be like.

Technology allows us to do a lot of things we couldn’t do in years gone by, however, what remains constant is “change” in the world we live in and the ones we gravitate towards.

We are never dissociate ourselves from the ONENESS of the UNIVERSE from that we cannot hide or escape   Where ever you go, in any dimension, you will always be you.  We cannot escape our “selves”  we can’t even hide.. we can try to avoid or ignore, but always what IS will BE

alexandria 8,4,c

Forever is today.

What ever you do, where ever you are. BE present.  There will always be opportunities to explore, be yourself, in whatever “role” you play or take on for that day.

The young ministers have been given different assignments, both are now married and in totally new environments, yet they will always be themselves, all past experiences will be part and parcel of the men they are today,

When we live with pure intentions, there are not regrets the lessons we learn bring wisdom in following years.
