vacations

There are days when you are blessed with the opportunity to simply wander. Today I took to country roads that I have not been on before and came across this little creek. I actually stopped the car and got out. Far from any well travelled roads, it was blissfully serene. The sun was high overhead, I could feel the warm rays on my shoulders, head, back, for a second, I wanted to run back to the car and the air con… but.. the sound of crickets and a passing butterfly changed my mind. I stayed.

Lingering on the old bridge, I was rewarded with a delightful pattern of a soft tobacco orange taupe growth. Delicate and interesting displayed against the soft and darker grays of the railing. Man made time was not important, being present in my surroundings, was all encompassing

This for me …. was a vacation.

PL calendar day 10 When you are not having fun, could it be because you are being Lazy? Sometimes you f eel blue or can’t seem to find the joy in doing anything. At times like this, just get up and move your body or work your mind to the fullest extent.

finding Monday

4efef7f7e3503cced3dad81b5a0c3e65In quiet reflection today, I wanted to transport myself back to the Holy Land (Japan, headquarters)  if only one could simply snap one’s fingers and voila.. we would be standing where we wanted to be.

Wanting, wishing, does not make it so.  I am where I am, thousands of miles away, different continent, time zone and season.

On my mind this morning, is Rev. Toyomi Hirayama, he was the minister who did the translations for me when I met with Rev. Mitsuo Michishita.  Sometimes when we are living a moment we don’t realize just how much that space in time will actually impact our everyday until months later.

Rev. Ise Kouji who I only met during my last visit there, was so kind so thoughtful, always a big smile.Unable to speak English, he still conveyed happiness at sharing and exchanging time with the English visitor.

The minister there from Argentina, Sensi Arthuro Higashigata, it was the same, so friendly and outgoing.  We came from all over to attend the celebrations and lectures.  The actual physical time was short .. but the learning, and discovery of self, is ongoing.

sunshine and flowersFaith will shine through, even the darkest of times, Nature will go on with her infinite art forms, and in quiet meditation, I can be “home”

my prayer

103d13599629856692b716fc8e1a4bf6

Sometimes when the road ahead seems  unsure,there is nothing to do but to pray, Trust in the Universe to guide you on what you need to do. There is a difference between closing our eyes to what should be done, and trying everything else we can do, so that we can escape the road that should and must be taken.  AND, simply not knowing how or what to do because you are overwhelmed with the present, and find you cannot make a decision.

No one is spared that inner voice that comes to us in the night, or during the day and whispers words that cause us doubt, and lead us to worry.

We have the voice of reason, and the voice of doubt, AND, yes there is an AND, we have our connection to the Universe that is the strongest of all, and the ONE that is pure and true.  It is not part of the mind, but of your heart/soul/spirit.

My prayer is that God/Universe will always see me through, not when I want it to happen, but when the time is right, I will know what to do.

Namaste     –      Oyashikiri
