Good Morning everyone, how are you today? For those who are new to my blog, welcome. Today is the 11th, of the month, in Perfect Liberty, the 11th is a day for remembering and expressing gratitude for the love and virtue of our ancestors. In China and other countries, it was a natural and everyday part of life to honour our elders. It is thanks to our ancestor’s virtue and Makoto (sincere effort) that we are here today.
The above picture, evoked a moment of tranquility from my memory banks. A summer day, visiting in the country, playing in the tall grass, and escaping from the heat by playing by a creek that ran behind the old country store a relative had in the Algonquin Park area of Ontario. For a city brat, this was so different and a totally new experience. When you are young, you simply live the moments, you aren’t analyzing or looking at your new friends with a ton of baggage in your head, you are taking life in, and responding to it with an innocence yet to be tested. You are living the moment, building your experiences in life, finding new emotions, discovering more of the world around you.
In my research this morning, I came across a picture of Betty White (actress) and a loaf of bread, interested in the connection I delved further into the post. “Did you know that Betty White is older than sliced bread?” was the the sentence that went with the picture. Of course, I know of Betty White, I’ve seen her in many sitcoms, but to be honest, I never really thought of her as a person of age, probably because in my journey through life, I have been entertained by her talents over the years, and have simply accepted her as “Betty”. We all do it in some way form or other.. we take someone or some thing for granted….
Today, lets take a moment to give thanks with Makoto to our past, and our present!……. Let us ask for guidance and protection so we can continue to live the PL Way.. (a life of Perfect Liberty) (life with God/Tao)
