Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.
It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.
In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.
In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.

Well said, as usual.
I like Precept 15. In Japan they say “The child is the mirror of the parent.” For good or ill. I think it true.
yes that is what we believe. in PL we do our best to live in a way, that when reflected on others is an example… no one can expect, pay for or get respect, it has to be earned, Unconditional love is always easy, but it is ourselves and only ( I,) me, that can change me PL Precept 8 Live as the sun. Good morning, =^_^=.
Do I see dumplings? I never met a dumpling I didn’t like. Comfort food, indeed.
You do! my sister and I were discussing our love of the silly things last night, you do know they come in many many delicious tastes and delights!!
Red bean paste! ❤ ❤
I think you can be an adult and still have hopes and dreams. You can still play. But you know when to put the toys away and be responsible. You pursue your goals responsibly. That’s my take on it.
Its called “balance” =^_^= “harmony…. waves across the State line…lol… have you snow in the backyard yet?
Just a few flakes the other day but we’re ready. Have a great day. 😊
