a bit of history

from the past

Why this review of the past… I have felt so strongly in recent times, that some of what we all need to remember, is that the wonderful wonders we take for granted , were not always in our lives. We fought long and hard, and dealt with a lot of fighting to achieve the world we live in today.

WE are currently living in a modern form of war, the landscapes of our lives are showing us challenging times. Many of us, are dealing with an inner war, freedom vs. captivity. Countries are drawing lines and taking sides. Not all news is biased, not all reporting is factual. There are times when omission is just as much a lie as what is said.

In PL. (Perfect Liberty) we strive to live Precept 21, Live in Perfect Liberty.

Not everyone is interested in planes… except if you are boarding one to go on holiday, or to attend a business meeting.. It is a mode of transportation. The above video, will show you a side of the airplane and what a whole mass of people who lived, or live a totally different life than you do.

WE (humanity) are all ONE, we are born, live and die… and each one of us will have our own unique “story” PL Precept #10 Love yourself and others.

PL Precept # 14 World Peace is Everything. Learn from the past, honor the lives lost from all countries. Peace begins at home, in our hearts, in how we live our lives, how we interact with others. Start with what you can control, and that is your own behaviour.

PL Precept #6 Efface your self conceptions. Dare to listen to everything you hear and see with an open mind. Before jumping in.. think.. will my action(s) create peace and goodwill, if not.. please take a moment to reflect.

PL Precept #18 Each moment is a turning point.

A man can get discourage many times, but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stop trying.

John Burroughs

  1. A sound post. We can’t view the video in England

    • isn’t that interesting.. wonder why.. it is historical.. on the aircraft carriers.. maybe because it is the history of aircraft carriers – and war planes (American) thank YOU for letting me know this.. wow

    I hate to seem too sure of myself, but I will disagree with Thoreau. Things change, and the rate at which they change is going to get even faster. We can fight it, and try to hold on to our little island in the middle of the flood, we can coast along and get carried where the flow decides to take us, we can struggle to the shore and watch from the sidelines or we can be a thrill seeker and run the rapids.

    • agree however, the world evolves, that is constant. humans tend to want to stay in place, not everyone has the courage or the desire to “change” There are times I want to do bit of it all. You used the pronoun We, not everyone is We, often there are moments of I, Me, Myself,

  3. Good quote about blame. Afraid I’ve been a little guilty of that myself this week.
