Perfect Liberty 2021.3
Embrace the moment, have fun, let it happen -reach out and be playful, who cares what others are doing, just be yourself.. dance down the trail, shake a foot, relax the shoulders, shake the hips.. laugh out loud. Its your day, your moment, express yourself with Joy.
I am filled with the unquenchable joy of Spirit! There is a joy I feel that comes and goes in response to what is happening around me. Yet I have a joy that is beyond what I feel as a response to people and circumstance. The spirit of God within me is my source of true joy.
In the presence of divine joy, I am encouraged to be aware of the love peace and strength that are in me, in others and throughout the world.
Daily Word, 209, Psalm 92:4
Each person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. that happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.
It is still only end of July, tomorrow will be August 1. Already I have seem the beginning of change happening along the roadside where I walk.
The last few days have been wonderfully “cool”.. balmy… especially early morning. I love it, but I hear on the radio the little gripes … the wanting of more hot, humid, hazy temperatures. this is Canada, we will get more “hot” weather, not until well into October, will we be past the chance of long periods of “hot”….
Today at P23, I got to meet up with one of the early morning regulars, he’s met up with a dangerous little critter called a Fisher Cat. We had a lengthy discussion of what these animals are capable of. They are predators and can and do kill even known to attack and kill porcupines. He showed me a picture and I said “oh a little mink”* but no, its bigger and even more aggressive / https://youtu.be/wMjQN48OqtI he encountered one who was not going to get off the path for him.. he had to use his walking poles aggressively to encourage it to move along. * believe same family)
Each person’s peace leads to world peace. first of all, you have to be happy. That happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.

I’m learning cute doesn’t always mean cuddly. =^_^=
Going through family photos I found this one of Dean, for those of you old enough to remember him when he lived in this area, he was a very gifted and talented (at the time) young man. He was the morning man for what was at that time one of THE newest and most progressive stations in this city. CKOY. He had, probably still does, had the talent of being able to do voices and characters in a way that the audience thought he actually had different personalities with him in the studio. His love of music and his ability to recognize talent also gave him an edge at drawing his audience. It was at a time when the DJ got to pick his own music and pull his show together “his” way. It wasn’t all automated the way it is now.
Dean later went on to bigger markets, from one major city to another in Canada. He added acting, doing voice overs to his resume and the rest is history. Why… you ask am I talking about Dean, I guess its because someone asked me about him the other day, and shortly after I saw Shirley’s pictures of her trip across the Alpine in NZ which I shared with you yesterday. Dean was a character actor, much of his work if it was voice over was not seen, only heard. There are many actors everywhere who you would not recognize on the streets but their voices have been heard worldwide.
In PL when we look at Precept #1… life is Art…………. every day this Precept helps us maneuver and use our creativity to make choices, and live our lives in a meaningful way. Some days are more meaningful than others, but each and every day is a day we live, it is our existence. Each experience we live, adds to our personal dimension. Cuts another facet in our “Being”
We, all (human beings) have been doing a lot of “watching the world go by” these past many months, we have had to be resourceful and use all of our creativity to deal with the many changes that have taken place all around us.
One of the “wisdoms” I took away from my time with Dean was his ability to use his creativity to deal with the many challenges/opportunities that came his way. We were so totally different in many ways, yet very alike in others. Our similarities (for me) have only come to light in my more recent years.
Every day, I am reminded through PL teachings that it is very important to live each day with Godin our center, but to try to live each moment with Makoto.. sincerity.
To succeed with his audience, Dean made us all believe and get to know the personalities he shared with us, his talent at doing the voices and recreating each character was a gift. He shared it willingly. I must ask him next time I see him, how hard it was to maintain “balance”. Every character/role we play in life, the hard core fact is.. they are all US, or the person who is you.. Who you are when you say ME.
PL Precept #20 Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter.
Each facet in a diamond is part of a whole. We are all ONE with God/Nature.
Everything here is soooo green, lush and over grown, when I saw Shirley’s photos from her trip she was just on, I asked to share a few with you. Isn’t the world a wonderful place, the geography is so different .. depending on where you are on the “globe”
Life is what we make it.
Don’t think overly about people. Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what you should do.

I had wonderful “ladies day” outing, we had lunch at a cafe/restaurant on the canal, ate out by the water. I didn’t intend for it to happen but I have a golden glow that wasn’t there earlier. The sun was out, there was a breeze, company was exceptional, food was good.. hey.. Life is Good!
