2021/12/09 [True joy] You won’t be able to enjoy real joy (the joy of the soul) if you try to get pleasure by taking it easy, such as “Is there anything good? The joy of being able to solve difficulties and difficult problems, and the joy of being able to do something that pleases others, are the real joy that no one can take away. -translated in Japan .. PL lesson for the 9th.
Does light filter through an unwashed window… yes it does… With the days shorter, and the nights longer, on sunny days when the sunlight streams through the sunroom windows, the room takes on a dazzling delight of coloured rays that give the room a festive quality – yes that is one the delights of the winter months in my home. From the moment I walked into the house those many years ago, the sunroom with all its windows was a “magical” room. Each home should have such a room, We never utilized the room as a functional room, I always decorated and used it as a “canvas” or “feeling” room.
I never wavered from this delight I have in the room. I often will just sit at the fining room chair and just look out the window (this one chair faces the sunroom and its many windows) Its a view I get when emerging from the area of the house where the bedroom and my studio are located, I marvel just catching a glimpse as I walk from one area of the house to another.
Do you have a special nook or area of your home that holds a special meaning to you and you alone? No reason or rhyme, just because…..
It’s okay to think “this is where it starts” There is always a turning point. It’s important what you do from now.

It’s a new season.. The Xmas trees are in the tree lots, people have started to look for their special tree. Our model is no exception, she is dressed today in a toasty outfit from Black Angel retail store in SL or in Marketplace. This outfit is Carlia it is a new release http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Alyssum%20Island/224/79/22
There is something about the tranquility of Nature, that I find very appealing. I step out of my vehicle and immediately feel the presence of an energy that is endless, the depth of which is beyond my comprehension, yet it feels like “home”.
With my model I am able to express my joy at being outdoors, she is happy, she is playful and most of all she is with “friends” playing in the snow. Something as adults we don’t do enough of. The location of this photo shoot was Winter solstice I will give you the LM (taxi) to the location, please be aware that not all of the area is open to the public, there are residence there be mindful of their privacy. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Real/218/157/21

Getting along with others. (translated from Japanese in Japan to English.) When people are truly united, infinite power is exerted. The first step in closing is to understand each other and get along with each other To understand the other person, acknowledge his/her strengths and never blame him/her.
Tell yourself “things Happen” Even if something is inconvenient, once you accept it you’ll be able to move onto the next step

Don’t give up! Keep at it until you accomplish What you’ve started. The key to achieving something is to stick to it. If you are able to continue something from start to finish you will be sure to accomplish it no matter how difficult the task is.
Kyososai, the PL founders Day ceremony falls on August 1st. It is a ceremony where we express our most sincere appreciation to Oshieoya and the first and second founders. Our Oshieoya passed away this past year, so this event is even more important this year for we will be remembering with appreciation and gratitude, the work that has been done to date, for the rapid realization of true World Peace.
Past years I have been in Japan for this celebration and ceremony, on this day tens of thousands of PL members from the local churches in Japan and all distant parts of the world, would gather at the PL Hoy Land, the home of our spirits, to show appreciation and pray. It is a very special occassion. This year due to the passing of Oshieoya, travel restrictions, and other factors that must be dealt with due to the world wide pandemic, there has had to be adjustments .. still the day is one that we must acknowledge and celebrate each in our own way.
When our first founder passed, he asked the teachings/philosophy be spread all over the world. “Do not grieve or mourn over my death. Rather, celebrate together with fireworks” this has been a long standing tradition. To this end the Second Founder wanting to fulfill his father’s wish, created “the Art of PL fireworks.” Every year the pilgrimage is made, the grounds fill up and after the PL Kyososai ceremony, it is followed by fireworks that have been enjoyed for years.
Wherever you are, on August 1, please join in with us in prayer and meditation, give thanks and appreciation for the significance of this day, its purpose and what it symbolizes. We more than ever need to work towards World Peace.
Also on Founders’ Day August 1. there is a ceremony held in the Peace Tower (PL Headquarters in Tondabayashi, Osaka, Japan) Where we honour the spirits of all those who lost their lives in wars, regardless of race, religion or Nationality they are memorialized at the altar of the Peace Tower. We pray for everlasting peace of humankind.
Mark your calendars, August 1. Kyososai. We all, everyone of us, want World Peace. Please check with your local church, find out what is being done, and attend if you can. If you need help or a consultation, please contact the minister in your area, or a hokyoshi. we are here for YOU. If you don’t know who to contact, get in touch with me.
Today’s calendar for the 27th.
It’s okay to think “this is where it starts” There is always a turning point. It’s important what you do from now on.
You can get all dressed up, do your hair, pretend its going to be a glamour day, but no matter how you cut the cake, if there is work to be done, or matters to be attended to that aren’t fun… You have to set your mind to the task and get it done.
Usually there is always a lot of hard work and effort that goes into putting/pulling something off in a seamless fashion, or presenting a “brilliant” feature documentary. For a brief time we can look very professional and maintain a certain air of efficiency and know how. BUT, we all need down time, and we all, each and everyone of us, needs time to regroup, to be still, to reconnect with our inner Selves.
The teachings of PL, the 21 Precepts and 21 Principles, are what help us navigate through the world we live in today… Stay in touch with what grounds you… what keeps you mentally and physically alert and positive. Life is too important to squander.
PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror Todo es espejo
PL Precept #11 Always be with God. Confie todo a Dios.
Obrigado PL por me ensinar amar assim Por ver Deus dentro de mim e em qulquer lugar
Thank you PL for teaching me to love, to see God within me, and everywhere around.
With one thought, “the world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.
When I was a child, my father would take me to places that now are only distant memories. These memories come back to me when I explore Asian builds in the virtual world.
Don’t think overly about people. Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what yhou should do.

During these times of restricted travel, virtual travel is actually a great way to learn about other cultures, and places you’ve never been before. In SL I have met so many wonderful and interesting people, I have been a virtual traveler since 2007. I’ve met people from all over the world, and I’ve expanded my ability to stretch my creative ideas in more ways than I can count. Bonus.. I’ve made friends, good friends who have crossed the border into what we call RL (real life). The reality is, we are who we are, no matter where we are, or how we are expressing ourselves.
