Wednesday 6-22

When a professional guide takes you fishing to “just that spot” there are no guarantees, but if/ when you catch and bring in a fighter… that is an experience you will remember.

We each have our own way of experiencing “NOW”, I like the mindful walking in nature, someone else will enjoy the solitude of a lazy day on the water. Someone else will get lost in their garden, whatever it is you like to do that makes you feel an “inner joy/pleasure”.. make the time.. take the time .. put aside a block of space.. just for YOU. So often we are so busy doing, we forget to “stop and smell the roses”

Today’s calendar reminds us to

Be in Tune with the feelings of others. Let’s start by trying to understand other peoples’ feelings.

I want to add… it is important to be mindful of our own thoughts and feelings.. It is easy to gloss over our personal reactions… in lieu of… when we do that… it will come back to haunt us.. maybe not immediately but it will.

survival

These little gems are delighting the viewers by peaking up along the trails between all the many shades and hues of greens/browns/grays that are in view as I amble along the trail looking for wood to carve. I am searching out smaller pieces of wood that I can use on the “storm art ” I am visualizing and want to put on canvas.

After the storm there are twigs, branches, all kinds of debris to sort through.. the need is to slow my pace and explore each side of the trail as I make my way slowly along. Everyday I walk (sometimes the same trail) and every day it is always different.

***** Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful ****

Take action without thinking too hard. No matter how hard you try to foresee the future, you really don’t know how things will turn out. Do your best and see how it plays out.

Friday 25th.

Arrived at an empty parking lot and was greeted by the sound of a busy woodpecker. In the distance I could hear the honking of Canada Geese. I got to the water’s edge in time to see them taking off from an open patch of water on the distant shore. It was cool enough, I tried to find the porcupine that used to bide his time up one of the very old and tall evergreens near by, but if he was there, he was well out of sight.

Use Money and things usefully and enthusiastically. Money and things are materials for self expression. Use them joyfully with appreciation.

I came across a video the other night on YouTube… it was a woman talking about her life experiences and how at over the age of 60 – life was different, her thoughts were different and she was offering advice on things that one should never do after the age of 60. Curious I hit play to see what would be so different. She did offer a couple of good suggestions (I only listened for a few minutes) DON’T LIVE IN THE PAST was her first offering, Personally I don’t see this as wisdom to be practiced only after you reach 60. Your thoughts?

Overcast and gloomy here, but.. I don’t care. I’m off to the woods. Till soon.

Grieving

There is no expiring date on grief….grieving is something that happens and we have no control of how it will affect us or for how long we will live with the emptiness and sense of loss.

Its a door that just never closes… a pain that seeps into every nook and cranny of your being. Just when you think you’ve moved on, when you feel the sun on your face, or a chirping bird sits on your shoulder, yes there is that moment of awe and pleasure, but… it passes… then the shadow slips in, and you feel the burden of the pain, the emptiness of loss.

“Time heals” you hear it time and time again.. yet as the years go by, when you least expect it… a sliver of the cold grief wraps around your heart once again. There is nothing to be done… it will pass. It does, but let me tell you, from the moment the icicle begins to drips its glistening tear, you are engulfed in the hopeless feeling of loss. The shattered pieces of your heart lie like broken shard with edges that are still too sharp to even begin to pick up.

You can’t go back .. you can’t retreat, you can only accept and live through the moment. The more you seek solitude, the more it eludes you. Love that endures, love that wraps its tentacles into forever, is beautiful, but it has a cost. How many moments were squandered, lost to foolish pride/ego. The seasons will change. and yes, you will get by, you will live another day… But oh… how crippling the grief is when it comes to call.

Make today a memorable day. Let’s try to put our whole heart into whatever we say or do, as our unique signature.

Silent Wednesday

by Dirk Hankenfrers (Instagram)

Be carful about doing things you really like. do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you’ll lose your balance.

Perfect Liberty 2021.26

A quick note- example – I love to hike/walk in the woods.. for days on end I go out every morning and drink in the world around me. Yesterday the heat/ the miles/ many steps, caught up with me. I lay down just for a second and lost the rest of the day/night. MODERATION.

stay safe – love U

Saying Goodbye

R.I.P

With gratitude and appreciation in our hearts, we say goodbye to a man who touched our lives in a way that with his passing left us with a profound grief, yet filled with a joy that his spirit will be with us always.

Life is art –

Perfect Liberty – Precept #1

Oshieoya-Sama (Master Takahito Miki) lived the PL Way, and through his example, we (each and every member) benefited. We said/say goodbye, but it is only at the loss of his physical presence, for he will live through the teachings of PL. PL teaches us that every day is a new beginning.

We must continue to strive to live as ONE with the Universe, and work towards World Peace.

covered bridge

Looking for a covered bridge, found one.. just not in the state I expected to find it in. It is a bridge, and it is covered. =^_^=. We were over on the Quebec side today, no sitting in restaurants, had to order and take food out. We also discovered the deer hunting season has begun. (unhappy face)

Wandered off the road, following animal tracks, the vegetation shows where they cross into the woodlands. it was a beautiful day. I stood still hidden by the brush and enjoyed the quiet and the peacefulness of the landscape. What a joy and blessing to live in a country where I can still visit and enjoy such wonders.

Enjoy the moment while you wait. Things come about when they re meant to happen. Think o what you an do for the time being, and don’t rush the outcome.

I am woman

RIP Helen Reddy, she cowrote I am Woman with Ray Burton. Inspired by her involvement in the women’s movement, the song gained popularity climbing the charts, she was the first Australia singer to hit number 1 in the US and earned her a Grammy for Female Pop Vocal Performance.

We also said goodbye today to Mac Davis, American singer-songwriter, who was from Lubbock Texas. Mac was known for his easy laid back songs, he also wrote for Elvis Presley (In the ghetto)… https://youtu.be/Ll8BBZCNoqk

some music/songs, the creativity and interpretation of life will never fade.

RIP

How often in our life time will we say goodbye.. How often will we say, “its for the best”..

Like a fine wine we age, then the day comes when we simply know its time to enter another phase.. the journey we will embark on is all our own, family and friends are left behind. It has to be that way, for we all reach our journey’s end in our own way, and in our own time.

When we live each day to the best of our abilities, give thanks, and appreciate all that we have lived and learned along the way…. The final journey is a blessing well earned.

Appreciate your ancestors and their virtues. We are here today thanks to our ancestors. Let’s pay our respects and give sincere thanks to those who came before us.

Perfect Liberty 2014.11

Begin your day with appreciation. Welcome each new day with renewed appreciation, and step forward with a feeling of World Peace in your heart.
