I am so thrilled. Tickled pink if you will. Look everyone, Kevin took a picture of a crow for me.. we can actually see the details of his face and his lovely ebony feathers. Could the day get any better… Thanks YOU Kevin.
Perceiving equals doing. Each time you notice something, it is a gift from God. Don’t miss this opportunity to act.

I hope you all have had a wonderful week-end. If you are in Canada, specifically in the Province of Ontario, it is a long week-end, tomorrow is a holiday. We had lovely weather, albeit it snowed… it was sunny and milder.. great weather for the outdoor enthusiasts. However no matter the weather, it is important to get out and get fresh air. The weather forecasters have been saying that we (in this neck of the world) COULD have unseasonably milder weather for end of February and into March. I’m considering bringing out a deck chair so that I can sit and just enjoy the weather. Even if it snows.. why not? Unless it turns bitterly cold again.. I think this is going to be a serious consideration. What do you say? Join me?
There are days when waking from a dream, we open our eyes to the reality of the day. Today was a day snuggling back under the duvet. It is lovely, mild but no sunshine, looks like it will be mostly overcast. when I saw this picture it drew me into another world, One of books, fantasy, wee folk, and magic. Picture the wee ones, going about their daily routines under the dense foliage. Oblivious to humans and their woes.
Some of you will have memories of hot summer days, when central air wasn’t the norm, Maybe your at the cottage, away from your landline, and certainly no cell phones. You hear the buzzing of the bees, and the birds flying over heard call out a greeting as they fly to their destination. Its a lazy day, you could be on holiday, or maybe you just prefer living where there is less “traffic and busy activity” ..just thinking of times when one could simple BE .. if you fish, that quiet on the lake in the early morning dawn. Take a moment to relive a memory that brings you back in touch with your inner quiet/calm. =^_^=
Today due to circumstances beyond our control, many of us are having to deal with “alone” time. We’ve been unceremoniously thrown back in time (on some levels) where we have to adjust to less outside intrusions on our thoughts. Getting lost in electronic devices/games, or watching endless television, does not soothe or alleviate the need for meaningful connections. Whether that be with others who share in this “situation” we find ourselves or with “nature/life” Our minds need to have time to heal from the constant borage of negativity that is or has been filling the “airwaves”
Change begins within. PL Precept #15 All is a Mirror.

Today’s message was to Listen Carefully and Speak Clearly ... read Precept #7 again.
I would like to mention here, to the PL members in Brazil who have been coming together to share their thoughts and support each other on the PL pages started in Brazil. Bom Dia dear friends.. I love reading all your comments, and appreciate the love you share with me and everyone else on the site. This site is also followed by members in Australia, South America, Spain, Europe, North America and of course Japan, and all our other members scattered in various places around the world. PL Precept # 11.. Always be with God
Our faith and commitment to living the PL Way and striving towards PL Precept #14 World Peace is everything is more important than ever.
Today in PL, we celebrate (the 1st of every month) with a special ceremony with a Day of Peace ceremony. Through the world peace ceremony, we pray for World Peace and dedicate ourselves to live as peaceful human beings in our own worlds, which include our home, school, work and community.
Service is at 10 a.m. for those unable to join us at the church, please say a silent prayer wherever you are focused on peace for all.
World peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is a part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace in the world around you.

Tomorrow, December 2nd, there will be an evening ceremony as we joyfully celebrate Oshieoya-sama’s birthday. 7 PM.
Imagine walking through the woods, hearing water, going to explore and discovering this site. Wow. A lot of beauty has been rediscovered this year with travel restricted to places closer to home, many are revisiting the greenspaces not far from their own “doorstep*”.
New encounters can help you change. Be up for anything even if its out of your comfort zone. This is a chance for you to improve yourself as a human being
The forecast said, snow this afternoon, and snow it did. I got out for one more wander ..
I could feel the stillness in the air. there was a thin layer of ice on most of the water.
There was a delicious sense of anticipation, it was cold, but not an angry cold, my fingers sought warmth in my pockets, I enjoyed the fresh air, and the brisk stirring of the teasing breeze as it tousled my hair.
From no snow to inches deep on the deck around the supper hour. Already I have been out twice to clear the deck and patio area where the dogs can run. Yes.. I will delight in snuggling down under the covers tonight.
You will find joy when you immerse yourself in your task. When you face your tasks with a can do attitude, you will be filled with enthusiasm and inspiration.
Harmony brings us Peace. Let’s strive to always maintain good relationships at home at work and in the community we live in.

I like being happy – what about you?
PL Precept # 14 World Peace is everything…

The simplicity is clear – the truth revealed in these words applies universally to all mankind.
Good Morning! It is after seven and it is dark outside. Groan. The shorter days have arrived. My internal clock still wants to wake up and get up and going much earlier. Thankfully my sleeping buddies are content to snuggle down and stay where it is nice and warm.
This picture is out of focus. I’m still getting used to my new camera… but what I was trying for.. you can see, are the drops.
The Virgo in me .. said… “you can’t use that, its out of focus” but the “lunar” part of me.. said “go for it” its the precious water droplets you want to show.. do it!” =^_^= the day was bright, the temperature was getting warmer, et voila… water droplets on some of the berries. The moment was perfect.. lol my shot wasn’t.
Lesson. Just because you want to do something, doesn’t mean you get to do it, or that if you do, it will come out the way you would like it to. That said, I had fun trying out my new camera, enjoyed the sun on my face, the slight breeze that rustled the leaves… AND… bonus, all kinds of birds, singing and dancing overhead as they explored from one branch to another.
I also met a fellow walker and her dog Scout. She also told me of the activities of the coyotes in the woods. A reminder that if there with the dogs, I will have to be vigilant and watchful.
A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly, but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.
We need to foster and nurture, basic human qualities, warmth, compassion and kindness. These were the thoughts that ran through my tired brain last night. The world is becoming cold, difficult and frightening, anxiety is everywhere. In PL, we strive to practice kindness in our every day lives.
This morning while driving to church, I stopped to capture a bit of the fading fall colours at one of the “green spaces”, I did find colour, but it was this field of muted vegetation that caught my attention, alone they are just a plant whose growing season is coming to an end. Together, they looked like a Monet, they gave me a sense of calm, and serenity … they all blended and harmonized under the sunlight that was building in the sky.
“I believe that if we stop and think, it is clear that our very survival, even today, depends upon the acts and kindness of so many people.” His holiness the Dalai Lama
Your smile energizes the people around you. A smile has the ability to put others at ease and give them energy. Strive to be the first to offer a smile each day to those around you.
