A friend sent me this picture and I returned the smile from ear to ear. Smiling is contagious.
First i would like to give you some information re. Autism that I have for those of you who venture into SL.
If you key in the world autism in the search window, you will be given a number of choices.
Autism Society of American and GBFA Commumity Center and Mall is a favourite.
Second Life Autism Network
The list goes on. I apologize that sometimes I take for granted the wealth of information and places to visit in SL.
Where I personally do not deal with autism in my life, I have friends that do. I’ve learned that where a child/individual who has difficulties in daily interactions in RL, shines and demonstrates amazing creativity with the tools SL offers.
To the other question about the various churches in SL, there are far too many to list. Again, once in SL, use the search window, type in the church, philosophy, teachings you are looking for and you will be directed to the various destinations.
For example, you can attend Buddhist Dharma teachings at the Buddha Center. This can be a busy place, they have traffic in the 1000s from all over the world at any given time.
Please dress accordingly.
Today I was visiting the Buddhist Temple in Aosagi, Japan. This sim is themed as a region of Japan in the Edo period (1603-1868 AD). It is designed to support a number of cultural, educational and roleplay groups for the benefit of all. The owning group is Kurogawa Cho. a wonderful way to revisit history and learn about how life was in the late 17th century.
This region is set in sengoku period of the late 17th century of feudal Japan.
Please remember that SL is International, often you will encounter people who are from a different country and culture, some do not speak English, on this sim (community) the main language is Japanese.
Wherever you go, who ever you visit with, remember today’s teaching (PL teaching) People Grow by Being Praised and Applauded by Others.
When people recognize your accomplishments and celebrate with you. What happens?, we become more enthusiastic ourselves and want to do better.
Success is achieved by working in Harmony with others.
Applaud someone in your circle today, SMILE, the world is ours when we SMILE and live the PL Way.
Blessings all…. arms open wide to embrace you, my heart is singing ” I L O V E Y O U” love is in the air, reach out and grab your share.
Ari thank you for the wonderful picture!
