Friday 2nd July

Where does the time go…
There are no empty spaces between the trees now, everything is covered with vegetation all vying for a place in the sun.

PL Precept #16 All things progress and develop.

Nowhere can this be seen more when walking the nature trails – the landscape changes every day, there is always something new to see or find. I didn’t crop the second picture, I wanted you to see the wall of vegetation that is so abundant with life.. The bird songs are always floating over the land, coming from all directions. Woodlands are alive with activity.

PL # 16 Tudo progride e se desenvolve

Be a person who can say ” I like it” find what moves you the most and express your appreciation.

Be well –

loving you always and forever

following the trail

Pictures of some of the “ladies” that were on display today… the vegetation is growing in leaps and bounds, won’t be long and the road will have reduced by half. It (vegetation) is coming in on both sides.

I’ll do it later. No, I’ll do it now. To make progress, do anything while its still fresh.

Today’s visit was longer than I expected it to be. I found that the trails I would have or had been taking, were not that inviting. With all the new growth, they were dark, and from a distance, I could hear the hum of mosquitos. Not inviting. I sprayed on the repellent and took off down the paved road. Thought I’d try to find the green gate on my own. Not that it would be difficult, it was just a matter of walking till I came upon it.

The spine that I should you pictures of in previous blog.. was at one time found just in, beyond the gate. Its been weeks now since the first “hiker/walker” found it… I doubted it would still be there, still I decided to venture in beyond the gate.

this was what I was hoping to find. I didn’t see any trace of it.

What I did encounter was an immediate invasion of cannibal minded mosquitos. They were everywhere, swarming around my head, trying to bit through my sleeves.. Not pretty. When I left the car I thought to bring my “Off”.. but I didn’t.. obviously my protection I had sprayed on when started out, was not going to hold these attackers off. I made a quick exit back to the open road.

The new tracker app that a friend suggested I put on my phone, has been fun, it tells me how many miles and steps I do. I’m happy that with each outing I’m getting better, and able to go just that little bit further without huffing and puffing! LOL there is hope for me yet!!

Take care everyone, enjoy whatever it is you are embarking on….

and BE HAPPY!!!

new growth

new growth is carpeting the forest landscapes

Tell yourself “things happen” Even if something is inconvenient, once you accept it you’ll be able to move on to the next step

Be creative in your efforts. If something is not going well, take a step back and look at how you are tackling the problem. There is sure to be something you can improve on.

succulent you say!

Succulents, I remember when they were a passion and I scoured every nursery around for miles to acquire another variety for my indoor garden. Where I live in Canada, they were an indoor plant, could be put out in the summer months but for sure had to come back in come fall and winter. Eventually I moved on, but I still stop and admire them when I see them being offered in the plant section of a shop I’m in.

Interests, hobbies, change over the years, at least for me they have. I always said, I don’t have time for hobbies, but I am sure that friends who have been around me for years, will rolls their eyes and simply give a snort, should I be heard giving voice to such a statement now. Of course I don’t see all my creative interests as a “hobby” I see them as simply a part of my every day .. a way of expressing a thought, expression or to make “statement”. Words, can be so ambiguous. Mean one thing to one person, and something else entirely to someone else.

I think I am a visual person, I like to create with my “tools” for the visual results. Yet someone will argue, you are a writer, you love words and use words to create and tell “stories”. hmmmm that is true, I do that. Still I think I lean more towards being a visual person. Any thoughts on this? Are words not visual?

Today is Sunday, we have service at 10 a.m. with LIMITED capacity. I know Rev. Eugene sent out a notice earlier in the week, for those of you who will not be attending physically due to the limited physical seating, please join us in prayers this morning, from the comfort of your homes. If you are able to connect to the service in Brazil, use the link provided by the church Hokyoshi and enjoy!

Do everything willingly and joyfully. Your upbeat attitude will make things more cheerful and enjoyable.

diamonds

There was a time when I collected diamonds, (jewelry) they were hard, cold, and sat in a box out of sight most of the time. I don’t know exactly when my “thinking” changed… somewhere along the line it did. I realized that the real “gems” were transitional, and were part of nature, the world that was all around me. In PL, we are all artists, our first Precept… #1 Life is Art. and the 2nd. one is “To lie is to express One’s Self”

PL Precept #7 Everything exists in relativity

The PL Precepts help us navigate through life.

Each moment in life is a turning point. PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a turning Point.

Begin today and every day with love in your heart, a smile on your face, and always… PL Precept #10 Love yourself and Others.

Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

a bloom for you

with snow falling, I wanted to share an exotic bloom with you..

Be very careful about doing things you really like. do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you will lose your balance.

Perfect Liberty 2021.26

Handle things that come your way one by one. Tackle your issues in the order they appear in front of you. You will be able to get things done more efficiently this way.

Thru the mist

photo by Num (NumOttawa)

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.

PL Precept # 7. Everything exists in relativity.

PL Precept # 4 Being annoyed limits your expression

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.

Stay strong and carry on! Oyashikiri

. I appreciate each and everyone of you.

Happy Birthday

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

efficiency gone wrong

Oophs.. click, click, really! in my efficiency I deleted and cleared out mail that I had in my IN folder, then I manually cleared out the deleted file. Like DUH. What did I have for supper.?? I read the incoming, but some I had left to return to, I wanted to reply, or comment. Sorry… I had good intentions however, my efficiency manager, took a wrong turn in the gray matter.

Flexibly adapt to changes. the world around you changes, and so do you. enjoy the transformations and deal with them flexibly.

Perfect Liberty 2015.31

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