The everyday things you do will show when it really counts. If you have a tendency to be careless about everyday matters, you cannot expect to perform well at crucial times.

I missed Canada Day because I was “under the weather” putting it mildly. Could it have been different, yes and no. In PL we believe things happen for a reason. I had a long day to reflect on how I got myself into such a state. The love and caring of friends, helped me to get through the “moment”… We don’t think we are being careless… “because, we always do something, or have “….

A wise Yoda ..” Change is constant, and change we must. We must be open to the observations and loving concern of others. “We” don’t always know best. ” One doesn’t always see the forest for the trees” ” Ok Yoda may not have said things in the same way. But you get my drift.

I have made a conscious decision, to be more aware, and to make changes.

One can only do one’s best!!

I disagreed

hello there.. =^_^=

I’m usually easy going, I do have an opinion, when asked, I have always done my best to be honest with my reply, if I disagree, I tend to soften my stand, unless it is something that really is important.

Today I was asked about whether or not our church should open for Thanksgiving service on the 21st. Contrary to what was said by someone who does not come to the church at all, I feel it should be open for those who would like to attend, observing of course, social distancing, and the wearing of a face mask. Because our members are scattered all across Canada, the actual numbers who can or would physically attend has always been low in number.

Those of us who find comfort in being in the church, some have been with the church since it was built. (the new one).. It is our home, our sanctuary . PL has always been unique in how it offers personal guidance responding to problems of our every day lives.

It is through consultations given by PL ministers, the personal guidance tailored to the individual character and situation that makes PL such a bonding experience.

That the question even needed to be asked.. (.. WOW..) Needless to say, I disagreed with the statement that we stay closed, … and I spoke out. These past weeks have made me realize, that too often, doors are closed, and the support that should be available is withdrawn.

Ministers are front line care givers. Not only the physical body needs to be addressed, now more then ever, we need to feed, heal and nurture our spirits.

happy yummy

fresh baked tea biscuit, smothered in butter, and raw honey

That sounds soooo good. The doctor is not worried about my cough, or cracked and at times absent voice. Fixing the diabetic numbers is more important. The fact that for the last many years, every time I am under the weather or allergies hit.. my voice goes wonky (pointed out by my son this morning)…. leaves me wanting a hot steaming fresh out of the oven tea biscuit. lathered with butter and creamy honey… A good cuppa ice water (told to drink lots of water during the day) I’m sure that is to make sure that my new diuretic pill has something to work with…. a fresh brisk walk around Costco.. (a couple of times to make even more steps for my exercise log) makes for a full day.

For supper .. fresh roasted yellow spuds.. tossed in a bit of vinegar and Japanese salt. Steamed green beans… again the Japanese salt and black peppercorns… served as side dishes for the fresh tender trout fillets I got when at Costco.

If you get the idea that I’m hungry and anxiously waiting for my food to be ready… You are so right. Sometimes we just have to give in to the urge to treat our tummies.

How was your day.??

I thank the Universe for the blessings I have received so far today, and for the delicious meal that will be on my plate. (hhmmmm soon!!)

It is important to say “thank you”… Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself, whether it is food, people or things. Learn to accept everything, whether it is something you like or not.

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.

picture and text taken from Pinterest

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

Choosing change – Things do not change, we change.

WE are all ONE

Hello walls

Freedom…. is “she” gone

Togetherness … have “you” gone away

Think carefully dear friends.. There is a lot of “stuff” happening out there. Don’t let go of your dreams, and your hard won friendships, and relationships. I had a long conversation yesterday with someone who is a very special friend to me. She married my ex-husband (who is currently battling a nasty illness) I heard and listened to her… “version/life” with a man I had known so many years ago.

Life is very precious. The relationships we make at any stage of our lives, is and are, always part of us .. in some way shape or another.

Everyone has an opinion, and everyone is entitled to express and feel their thoughts and to live their dreams.

But… we do not have the right, to force our thoughts and wishes on others. Or to use our talents and means to create negativity that will cause hurt and unrest, that leads to pain, distrust and emptiness in the lives of others.

God/Universe is divine, and is for all of us. We are blessed to live in a time where we can hear almost instantly of situations happening “worlds” away. During the first and second world wars, how many families were torn apart, living day to day, not knowing where a loved one was, or what was even happening miles away.

We trusted in our faith, our beliefs, and we prayed.

Loving one another is a gift we all have been given us. Love is a feeling emotion that we have all lived. If you’ve lost it. PLEASE look for it.. Love, respect and honoring life.. is the only way we will find World Peace.

Find the tranquility in your heart.. and pass it on.

Wednesday night out

on a clear day, we can explore forever

I was drawn to the outdoors today. we are fortunate to live where we can enjoy a huge expanse of open countryside, and the ocean. I really needed a break from the news coverage of the unrest and disrespect for human diversity. Fortunately I do have a place to escape.

Girls night out – DJ Yume is rocking the tunes

The music is loud and we are rocking. Rose in the middle, Yume on the right and yours truly on the left. We are at Tango’s a club that offers a variety of music, depending on the evening and the DJs theme.If you are virtual traveller, this is your ticket to ride. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Larius%20River/21/223/15 Dj. Yume takes the stage on Wednesday evenings and Fridays 7 pm SL time.

plays Tuesdays and Saturdays 7 pm. – 9 pm SL time
Wednesdays and Fridays.. 7pm (Tango’s)

There obviously a lot of choices in Second Life.. Silver works at Smokestack, DJing there on Mondays.. for R & R when we want time out.. we visit Tango’s.. the ambience, and friends there make for a great evening of fun.

Usually entertainment and SL news is in my other blog https://virtualnws8.ca/ yes why not… this blog is relatively new, many of you have been following me now through my adventures.. It is not unlike one of my previous ones, where I blogged, the fashion, and entertainment venues of the virtual worlds.. Music makes the world go round. Like the individuals we are.. our musical choices differ too.

With the pandemic all around us, many of us spend more time in SL these days.. While Smokestack is every kind of Blues you can imagine, Tango’s offers a variety of tunes.. and the personality DJs like to throw in themes.

OH wow David Bowie .. let’s dance. https://youtu.be/VbD_kBJc_gI

wish you were here

No one is sitting still,Yume is just rocking out the tunes, and people keep coming. Its a great night..Please keep us in mind when you next want a night out with lots of good tunes.

Earlier in the evening I was visiting with a friend when we found out it was another friend’s birthday….. a party was happening to celebrate our friend’s birthday… (hey Nick! birthday boy guess you just get to keep celebrating) You betcha A.. we got ourselves over to the party. =^_^=

Life would be plain boring without friends! We are surrounded by negativity, it is up to us to find out own way .. round and past the environment that some would cast us in.

In SL, we are from all corners of the Universe. We gather from everywhere, and simply enjoy sharing time, good music and conversation.

Find the peace/love in you and exercise it every day.

PL Precept #1 life is art.

Home sweet home

Home is not only where the heart is

Its the doorway to countless memories of fun times spent with family and friends. At an Address you will never forget. (taken from an old hardcover found lying around on the living room floor.)

Home is trying a green bean casserole for the first time. so strange to my ears, a question mark for my pallet.. a green bean casserole !!!! I couldn’t picture it at all. Remember I grew up with chopsticks and rice. My taste buds had nothing to compare the words to my previous experiences.

Here you go… I bought a bag of fresh green beans from Costco. They come with the ends cut off already. Fresh green beans, used almost half the bag, added 1 can Cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup Milk soy sauce (I kid you not the recipe my Google Assistant pulled out for me, called for soy sauce.

Now here is a little change I had to make, the recipe called for dried fried onions. The only place I knew to source that item was an Asian market. I could not find in Walmart or regular big grocery stores.

dash of pepper…. and bake for 30 minutes. This was a Southern green bean casserole dish…. I have to confess to eating it all. ALL. Didn’t get to the accompanying servings. just ate the green beans.

I felt so uplifted by the discovering of a new taste… I picked up the book, and primed two pages. That is how I discovered the saying – Home Sweet Home.

Waves hello to all, – You make my life “home” because I get to share it with you all.

joy

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is yours and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.

maudlin

photo Dave Renz (day 68)

Yuppers today I woke up with a maudlin mind. My thoughts travelled down roads, through valleys and dales that well…just brought tears that needed to be expressed. Crying doesn’t mean I’m unhappy, it means I am reliving a series of events that tugged at my heart strings.

I talk to you all about love all the time. Love is forever moments that live on in the energy field that is me, myself and I. Crying is cleansing, to allow a tear drop to fall is to allow the sunshine in on a sunny day.

music,singers,song writers, story tellers, what a beautiful world we live in

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Perfect Liberty 2020.28

Now I’m off to exercise, walk my many steps, and move. How about you! step, step, step, exercise your brain, your body, your everything. Life is for living.
