Being!Princess Perfect

Freedom to be!

Not a care, dressing for comfort, and because it is what you want to wear.

This is the innocence of youth. happiness is getting dressed so you can get out and play. You put on what appeals to you.. as soon as I saw this picture I was hooked. I knew I would have to share.

Treasure those fleeting inspirations. The best time to seize an opportunity is when you first notice it.

It is only natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our ow way of thinking and our own individual lifestyles. That’s what makes life interesting.

bonjour 8.8.

Good morning everyone! Another day of clear blue skies, white clouds and whoopeee.. less humidity. It is a gorgeous day, and its only beginning. Yippee Kiii Aye…..

With the rain we had, the vegetation out back grew like crazy. Yesterday I donned rubber gloves and braved the overgrown vines. Pulled, ripped and yanked.. then I swept, up the dead seed pods and pulled and yanked some more. Have to admit.. I didn’t groan, moan or grumble. (feeling a bit smug actually hummed)

Are you wondering how I felt later in the day…. YES I felt a tad worn and ready to chill. No guilt when I sat down to watch a taped Agatha Raisin.

Always applaud others. When you can be genuinely happy for others, you yourself will be blessed and you can experience a deeper sense of happiness.

You can become more attentive with prayer. Live your life with a prayerful mind so that you can be more attentive and make the people around you that much happier.

For my Asian readers… today is the 8th. we have a double 8 day !!!!! Yay!

August 7

shaded, barely seen, you are always there – a friend who never pushes to be heard, or arrives in the moment just for the occasions. you are always present in the background, content to be in my world, an ear to listen, a shoulder to lean on, yes… all those things.. but mostly, you are you.. a gentle whisper of strength when I need it most. Q

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of “now”. Treasure each and every moment as it comes, so that you can live your life as fully as possible without regrets.

When I saw Shirley’s recent post of her visit to a “rust” exhibit.. I knew I wanted to share them with you … thanks Shirley…

My other collection of doors I found, are rather of a different kind.. I’ll show you a few here. For long time friends, you know I’m on the hunt for ideas for October …

Don’t give up! Stick with it as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up” but, that’s the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere efforts will invite a good outcome.

LIFE IS ART

Perfect Liberty Precept #1

EVERYTHING EXISTS IN RELATIVITY

perfect Liberty Precept #7

In life we live each moment of our days, doing, thinking, taking action,eating, sleeping, whatever, there is usually an activity involved. the results of our days, some are productive, some less so, but…. the reality is.. for every “action” there is a “reaction”.

When we take a picture, we capture that moment in time. To the photographer, he/she saw and did so much before he/she took that picture. We see only the results .. what was captured in that moment when the picture was taken.

Mixed media is another re-enactment of sorts. the artists starts with an idea or inspiration, then pulls, tears, shreds, paints, pastes, stamps, whatever to accomplish an end result. In my case, instead of a photo, I call it a “doodle”. (dictionary -verb- to scribble absentmindedly etc.)

Will you “doodle” today, or dawdle…. LOL whatever you do, have a grand time doing it. and… SMILE!!

Your smile energizes the people around you. A smile has the ability to put others at ease and give them energy. Strive to be the first to offer a smile each day to those around you.

Yesterday, I forgot to take my medication. ?? How did I manage that? No excuse really, I came home, was tired… thought only of having a bite and then going to bed.

Being a diabetic when I took my reading this morning, I was surprised to see how high my number was considering it has been so good. (light bulb moment) I did not remember to take my medication and insulin before going to bed.

In PL. we are reminded to be aware of each moment, to pay careful attention to what we say and do. Last night, I was more focused on my goal, of getting to bed. So this morning, I see the results of inattention. I will try to do better today.

In PL, we refer to such slips.. as “lazy mind”.. PL Principle # 12 I will get up pleasantly in the mornings.. So saying, I will tuck this little wisdom in my pocket and get on with my day.

I will not have complaints about others, matters nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

Perfect Liberty Principle # 2

All things progress and develop #16

Grasp what is most essential # 17

Each moment is a turning point #18

Begin once you perceive #19

August 1. in PL. is Founder’s Day. (Kyosoai) Through this special ceremony we honor the spirits of the first and second founders and dedicate ourselves to spreading and sharing the PL faith with others for the rapid realization of World Peace.

In the past I’ve been in Japan for this ceremony, it is followed by huge fireworks… this will not take place this year. (the fireworks) However, for those who can make it, we will have a service tomorrow at 7 pm.

31st. musing

poignant emptiness

I woke to find you gone, the dim light from the early morning dawn was peaking through the freshly washed curtains…

The sun would be up soon, shining brightly on the brand new day…. the colours of the day, the outdoor activities will begin, there will be a a cache of memories to bolster my spirits ….

your footsteps, the timber of your voice, they are not here … last night when the thunder rolled through the skies…. I reached over to feel your strength, I listened for your heart beat….

a lone tear slid silently from my eyes, shutting them, does not hold back the moment of utter grief that can overwhelm and fill me with a total sense of loss…

I will be fine, the cadence of the day will remind me of the fun, the joy and laughter… the image of this moment, will fade away ….

The silver moonlight, will always filter through the rainbow of colours that create the landscapes of the day…..

yesterday, today and always. Q

Be easy going and live your life cheerfully and flexibly. strong emotions can be the cause of various troubles. always strive to have a cheerful and calm state of mind.

Perfect Liberty 2015.24

I give thanks and feel gratitude, that I have been blessed with friends who care … friendships that span miles… love and prayers are powerful bonds. I truly love and appreciate each and every one of you.

how busy you feel is a mater of perception

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. the joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is yours and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.
