migraine moments

clarity is blanketed

the body’s message loud and clear, STOP, don’t move, lie down,close your eyes, focus on your breathing. Let the swirling debris of sediment settle fill the cracks, and allow the mind time to regroup and fall where it may.

let definition settle where it may

STOP trying to introduce brilliant, vibrant and chaotic energy into the reality of NOW. There is a world of discovery at your feet, stop looking into the distance, there is a whole world to be discovered and rediscovered.

With all the negativity of late in the press, media and being spoken and conversed about…. my brain needed a change of venue.

I have a very special friend, who in introducing me to the America he knows, sent me a video that stirred my emotions and left me wanting more. I searched YouTube and found this video by Ann M. Wolf. I would like to share it with you. please feel free to pass on having a look, if it is not of interest to you.

https://youtu.be/9-Lf9WTiawQ This is a video on the flag folding ceremony of the flag of the United States of America. It was done as a dedication to Honor Guards and the fallen from across America.

Church service today is at 10 a.m. and I believe that Reverend Eugene is going to try to send out a video of same.

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.

the quarry

Where are the words. A lot of green. Blue open sky. Potential danger lurking in the vegetation. Crystal clear spring water. Overwhelming intake of visual woodland, rock,calcium deposits on dried moss, dense brush and over growth, poison ivy, snakes, and wild life that watches, waits, a sudden cloud, drops of rain, too much input on a mind that needed to zone.

I may have to work on today’s lesson.

Live radiantly as the sun. Strive to always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you,

my attempt this evening at tea biscuits

raw white honey? butter? crab meat with garlic mayo? creamy almond butter? First time to use my made in Italy pan I found at the thrift the other day. You can’t see it, but the outer pan is lazy baby blue.

Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and every one of your actions can inspire peace within your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to world peace.

lazy day

Have you got the idea…

Doing my best to show you “lazy” OK, not lazy, RELAXED.. can you imitate or get into such a laid back state of mind and body.

Velcro and his sister are “masters” at kicking back and just letting the moment happen.

even Leon has decided this is the happening thing to do…

how about YOU..?…

PL Precept # 17 Each moment is a turning point

PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror

Time to sit back and reflect guys and gals.. too much finger pointing going on.. Let’s chill a bit.

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.

WE are all ONE

deafening silence

the waiting

Along an open highway, I came across a long forgotten saw mill, and the adjoining lumber yard.

what a beautiful reminder of what was.. a story of activity of rumbling trucks, long beds of logs coming to to processed.
I stood in the silence of the day, taking in the beauty of the old structure. A man came to ask me if I was OK, could he help me with anything? I thanked him.. I appreciated his request, but nothing will bring back the past, or the honest toil and labout of men/women who worked side by side to bring us what we now go to big box stores to pick out for our projects.

I do remember the days when the logs would be merrily making their way down the river to the saw mill. Men would be out along the banks with long handles picks. During fairs we even had log rolling contests, everyone stood, cheering the contestants on. Nature was so much a part of our lives.

I was impatient with my sister yesterday, do I recall just why. No… but in my defense, the silence of the last many months, of voices, friendly conversations, and welcoming smiles of strangers along the roads travelled. Has left me rather empty. I am tired of always hearing only about destruction, violence, disregard for humanity, negativity, yes there has been and is a “problem” – WE – are all affected by it. But I refuse to have it the center of my life, and my reason for living is not to live in fear, distrust, and self exile.

Part of the saw mill grounds are being used by another company.

Life, the world, will continue to evolve and nature will continue its cycle of rebirth and renewal. My hope, my prayer is that we as people will once again resurface and the values of love, family and community, will emerge and be stronger then ever. Silence can be music to our hearts and souls when it is listened to with an open, caring heart. Stand up and be heard, it is time for PEACE ON EARTH and GOODWILL towards all.

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.

From my heart to yours… I.. Love.. YOU..
