Welcome another day! I overheard a conversation the other day, noooo I was not eavesdropping I was happily shopping but aware of my surroundings, two women were in conversation right next to me, hard not to hear. One woman was complaining of the heat (it was hot, in the 90’s) the other one listened, but as soon as the first stopped talking, went right into what a mess her life was in. This was a conversation that they both have had before because the other woman then jumped right in with her list of complaints too. Both agreeing that nothing ever changes.. I tried moving away to another rack, but they were also shopping and seemed to moved near me again, still with the same dialogue.
These women were strangers to me, and I’m sure that it was great to be able to have a friend to unload to, however, they were sad and disappointed with their current situations when the conversation began, and it seemed that it would go on being so …. I briefly closed my eyes and offered up a thank you to the heavens for the blessings in my life. I love life with all the joys and challenges it brings. That’s me, being who I am, I wish everyone was as happy as I am, in PL (Perfect Liberty) we strive to live ….. Precept #1 – Life is Art in all we do. Precept #10 – Love YOURSELF and OTHERS.
Why start the day with a meditation, thought, prayer ………………….because it helps set the tone for the day, YOUR day. Life is not always a ball of laughs, and we are not always happy with the cards we were dealt. However, reality is…… perception…… and only YOU have the ability to change that perception. No one else can do it for you.
Focus on your true feelings, and express yourself with makoto (sincerity) and honesty. Then listen to what you’ve said, and to what you are feeling.
Once you’e made up your mind, move forward without hesitation. Believe in your”SELF”.
