How are you today?
PL Precept #21 Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter…
This lovely picturesque grouping is of Giethoom in the Nederlands where there are no roads. It is a beautiful and quiet village unique in that you will not find a single road in the entire town. Instead it is connected with paths, bike trails and a canal system. Visitors are welcome to explore by renting a noiseless, electric “whisper boat”. I have been enchanted with the idea of visiting ever since I read about the place.
We all lead busy, at times hectic lives, and finding that quiet time we need so much often eludes us. We grab moments here and there, but often they just are not enough. In PL we have a Precept, # 5 that says.. One’s self is lost by being emotional.
The 21 PL Principles help us to achieve the 21 PL Precepts that we live by. Like everyone we struggle at the best of times to get then right, or to effortlessly follow them, but in following PL Principle #1 – I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto into all I say and do (Makoto/sincerity) as best we can, dedication towards that goal helps enormously.
To be easy going, and to live life constantly in a cheerful and calm state is something to strive for. When I’m challenged, then I revisit the Holland of my dreams, and let my mind wander effortlessly through the gardens, and sail the waterways. Care to join me today? You are all so precious to me, I wish for you a glorious sun filled day , no matter where you are, no matter the weather, let the joy of life, bless you with a soothing balm of love. Thank you for sharing this moment with me, I really truly appreciate the time you spend with me. (I would burst out into song, “love is in the air” but that dear reader would really send you into hiding ) liefde + kus xxxoo
