Same bed, different bed cover, same lazy laid back whippet …Nothing new goes down, without his checking it out, for comfort. Ceiling fan is over head, he is content.. I have permission to leave on my errands.

When something comes to mind, do it right away. The moment that you notice, something is the best time to take care of it. IF YOU REACT QUICKLY, YOUR LIFE WILL BE MORE EFFICIENT.

Be Enthusiastic

If you are willing to deal wth things, you will be encouraged to do so, and will be given a new path. Everything that happens before you is God’s work.

It is important to take the first step, saying “OK, let’s do it” ) translation Mariko Inagaki

Your willingness to learn will make you shine even brighter. As long as you are motivated to learn more, you will continue to progress in life.

It is not always easy to stay positive, to continue towards “the light” when you feel encumbered or surrounded by negativity. In PL we are fortunate to have other members who will offer support and reach out to us, when the light dims… My friend Mariko in Japan, reminds me, that together, when we believe in Oshieoyasma, all things are possible.

Let us practice this lesson with enthusiasm.

hidden

Naikoon Rainforest in BC

Where can I go to hide.. so lush, so mysterious. … what sights and sounds will I find, will my sense be overwhelmed… gosh.. this is somewhere to discover… Think I’ll start a bucket list.

What reason to hide..non really… but there are times.. when I want to disappear for awhile.. (from day to day) and explore another reality in this wonderful world of ours.

BC is a long way from home. I never knew such a wonderful place existed, have any of you ever been ? if so, can you tell me about it?

Lately it has been a time of discovery, new and old experiences, have taken on new meaning, new depth, and my analytical mind is processing it all. Since my health related problems seem to be rectifying themselves I am feeling the slow return of my “old” self.. the one that loved exploring and adding to my already plentiful life experience.

I want to relearn, quiet, meditation, and nature in all its many forms. Life is for living, life is for sharing, life is beautiful. Travel with me.. let’s share and grow in LOVE for life. Make it a commitment.

I don’t know where I got the picture it was in my files. I suspect Pinterest.

machine Sunday

I saw this cutie the other day, I not only was captivated by her “cuteness” I like the shadows of the tree on the wall of the new home being built. Hard/soft. This morning when I opened my mail I found a blog by a fellow blogger who I so enjoy..

https://milfordstreet.wordpress.com/2020/06/14/spring-planting/comment-page-1/#comment-32058 When I saw his little beauty.. I decided I would share my little Bobcat.

In a sharing conversation last night with a fellow “hokyoshi” (minister) in PL, Perfect Liberty, and a friend in Japan also PL (Minister’s wife) we talked of our concern .. how we need to work harder to maintain a personal connection with our members and other people in society. It is so easy to avoid being social, or interacting with another fellow human being – using the possible threat of an illness to hide from life.

You only need look at the media hype, and the listen to any kind of broadcast to get your fill of accusations, finger pointing, 1001 ways to avoid being near or around anyone else. There is competition in every quarter, the political scenes around the world.. all … centered on criticism, and negativity.

Machines, as cute as they are, and/or as efficient as they can be, need a human to work them. They function but do not have a “heart”. We are not machines, we are not robots, nor are we capable of really existing without humans in our life, Not roles.. ie. doctor, lawyer, teacher, we are not the titles of our occupation, we are born to live.. to embrace life, and to share in the bounty of nature.

“let us deepen our faith in togetherness..” let peace and harmony find its place in our lives.. so that we are rainbows, mirrors that reflect goodness and love. We are all unique and we all have something to bring to the THANKSGIVING table.

thank you Steph! love you.

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.

Henry David Thoreau

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.

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.
