you can run, but the heat follows
engulfed in the constant unrelenting heat
you search for the open skies and the welcoming spray of the ocean waves
finally you find a place where the gentle breeze is playfully caressing the trees, a woodpecker is feeding on the tree, the floral scents are wafting over your senses
think carefully of what you will do and say each day, be grateful, appreciate the many splendours of what this world has to offer. We see a lot, hear a lot, there is no denying that there is a bombardment of endless uncomfortable atmospheric mass of unpleasant and uncomfortable energy that is at times out of control.
WE must find the peace, the quiet, the natural nurturing environment of clear skies, fresh growth, and take the path(s) that lead out of the negativity and back into the light of love, peace, and gratitude.

It is important to say “Thank You” Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself, whether its food, people, or things. Learn to accept everything whether it is something you like or not.

Perfect Liberty 2020.9

In PL we learn that everything happens for a reason. It is how we accept what happens, our attitude, and the steps we take to deal with the opportunities offered, . Change begins within ourselves.

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.

can we disappear

how medication /drugs can affect your life.

As a diabetic I have learned to never take for granted that what works today, will work tomorrow. We, like the Universe are always changing. Recently, you all know that due to my meds. I had a few days/weeks of oops and wow, darn, and golly.

Changes were made, and the waves took on a more realistic ebb and flow. However, it is never that simple. All the other pieces of “me” then have to adjust to the new ripples in what can be a very calm environment. One drug was changed, to be replaced by two. Sounds simple enough, and it will be once the body adjust. Meanwhile..we practice patience and relearn to stand still while what needs to happen .. happens.

It is in these times, that we give thanks, for the blessings we have had, and the love and the friendships that we have had enrich our lives over the seasons.

Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about> Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

Perfect Liberty 2020.25

Can we disappear, yes from view maybe, but from ourselves.. no. never.

Today is another day in our lives. For some, you are still enjoying a long week-end. for others it is back to a work week. Whatever, where ever you are. May you be blessed with the Universal love that surrounds us all.

PL PRECEPT 21…. LIVE IN PERFECT LIBERTY.

Busy

fallen soldier

I saw this tree – lying there supported by the under growth. My first reaction is to go in and pull it away from the younger trees, the newer growth. I would have had to have my work gloves with me, and proper footwear, but at another time, without the dogs with me. I would have attempted to rectify the situation.

Years have passed in my life, and I now recognize that the “solder” is down, and my limitations are what IS in that moment. Nature will deal with the situation, and in her own time frame, with the assistance of the “world” around.. either workmen who come in to clear, or the animals in the forest who jump over or trample a path nearby.. the aging process… decay.. whatever, it will heal itself. Life does that.

I need to take care of me, and look more at what my needs are. What I can do something about. See the tender young shoots that are breaking through, eager for a new season of growth. Even though the day was not perfect for sunny pictures…. my camera captured, what WAS at that moment, and for me that was “perfect”

Take on the task even though you’re busy You’re busy because you are needed. Actively, positively and creatively juggle yur time to fit the new task in.

Perfect Liberty 2020.7

I would like to take this opportunity tho thank my readers, friends, and loved ones, who share this journey with me. Without you. Life would not be the JOY it is. You are my “blessings” I so appreciate you.

rust you say!

Nay it is art…

IMG_20190831_112725_resized_20190901_123149043

under the majesty of the sky

the temperament of the clouds

the treasure lay,

surrounded by a crowd of flowers

lush and green waving in the breeze

cheerfully saying hello to passersby

oh… for a closer look

checking mirrors back and front,

I pulled over to seek my treasure out

IMG_20190831_112744_resized_20190901_123148650

not gems that gleam in the sun

but a sturdy piece of artwork

that has been lovingly blessed each day

by natures wonderful expressions

(most call it weather)

set in concrete for all to see,

this piece of art has grown lovelier with each passing season

I can’t say for sure, but I would guess

that not many are struck by its beauty

or come to admire, yet pass it each day

such is life, in French there is a saying

“to each his/her own”

You see rust, you say! Lad show me the way!


PL calendar day 3

Instead of worrying, do something about it..

It doesn’t help to over think situations such as, “What if this happens?” or “Things might end up that way.”  Instead be proactive and change how you see and do things in each situation.

Everything we have today, was built on the hard work of our ancestors..

Always remember to be humble and thankful.  Every moment you live, every experience you have, becomes part of who you are.  Be yourself, no one can do it better than you.

PL Precept # 2  To live is to express One’s Self.

PL Precept #15  All is a mirror

PL Precept #1   Life is Art.

hwy to alfred7

Stay awhile, simply stand, sit, wait, till the sounds around you, are the only thoughts you hear.  Feel the breeze, take in the smells, you will feel you body start to relax.

hwy to alfred8Walk slowly, for now, in this moment,  you have no other place to be. SAy these words quietly to yourself, right now.  Then close your eyes, take a deep breath, feeling your lungs expand    smile    then slowly open your eyes.   Ahhhh how easy was that.

Go in peace my friend.  You are loved.
