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.
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..

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.
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
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.

Live radiantly as the sun. Strive to always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you.
Years ago I saw this plant and knew I had to have some in my garden. Now I have a wonderful bed of lanterns, so pleasing to the eye. It was my friend Eartha tho’ who took the initiative to actually get a picture before the frost comes and puts them all to bed for the winter. Thank you Eartha.
We all have good intentions, we all have creative ideas, and we all have at times missed out on our opportunities to follow through. That is why I have such an appreciation for the difference and the uniqueness of my friends. Life is so much richer and fuller when we embrace “new” encounters/situations. I give thanks everyday for my friends, I am so blessed,
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.

We are all facing the challenge this year on how we will celebrate (Hallows Eve) Halloween. A time when many enjoy the crazy silly ways we can welcome the coming season, and say good-bye to the summer. In Canada we already have had Thanksgiving, but our neighbours in the States, are preparing for theirs. Pumpkins, and all the trimmings of that holiday are bountiful in the shops and outlets. Fall is a brilliant season!!
However you decide to spend this week-end.. be safe, be careful and stay well.
Another way to enjoy the fall colours, and the creativity that happens when the fall season begins. Today at church we were reminded that soon we will be turning back the clock! Yup, October 31. Where does the time go, it seems to be flying by!
Wishing you all a very happy and productive week.
Monday, October 19th.
Put your whole heart into everything and express your individuality. When you put your whole heart into expressing yourself, your true beauty will shine through.
A drive to get petrol for my car, took me beyond where I “had” to go… down through county roads that led me past way too much colour and “wow” moments.
Is there such a thing as colour over-load. This year we have been simply inundated with day after day of Nature’s magical palette. Yes many of the trees are now bare.. Enough so that you can see their stark beauty as you walk the nature trail.
If you are going to do it, do it joyfully. If you have to do something, choose to do it with joy and enthusiasm. By doing so, you will experience a deeper sense of beauty.
