allo! it’s Friday

how many masks do we wear during a day

recognize your thoughts and feelings.

Allow your thoughts and feelings – recognize them

investigate and ask yourself “what is the story here? am I being honest with myself?

observe but try to not get caught up in it

Processing difficult emotions can be tricky… especially when they are unpleasant .. it can overwhelm the mind. … your thoughts and feelings will come and go.. they are constantly changing all the time, like the weather. Clouds, wind, rain (weather) it is constantly changing they are happening, but they are not the sky… allow for the moment, and let it go. ie. like a cloud dissolves in the sky. Let your mind rest!

Start by thinking “Let’s do it” Once you decide to do something and put your whole heart into it, things will start moving forward.

Feelings

Sometimes a picture can tell a story … ever had that empty feeling…. we’ve found this wonderful photographer in the States, who has a wonderful way of taking pictures.. They have graciously given us permission to use some of the “stories” we found in our tour of the M6 site. you will see more from this artist over time.

Lately we have had a lot of “sad” experiences within our community. In some cases, we have had to bid adieu to old friends/family members, other’s in our “family” have had challenges that require a lot of “faith” and “makoto” (sincerity). In PL, our first precept is LIFE IS ART. Every day is a new beginning, a new canvas as I like to say. The picture of the mailboxes reminded me of when mail, (the written greeting) was so important, and how everyday, we watched for the mailperson… Yes there were commercial/business envelopes, flyers and advertisements, but.. that is how we kept in touch with family and friends who didn’t live near, news was always so welcome.

How many of you can remember the pleasure of finding a pretty coloured envelope in the mail. One from a pen pal, or friend/family member dropping in to recount their news. Now so many mailboxes stand empty, new technology has changed how we communicate and share. With the change my personal realization is that “feelings” that came with the written word (missive) are often missing. If the mailbox was a symbol of our heartfelt world… would yours be open, full, half full, barely used, and just possibly often empty.????

Be in tune with the feeling of others. Let’s start by trying to understands other people’s feelings.

Think of the timing before you say “but…” When stating your opinion, make sure you are being respectfully of others opinions. Be mindful of this when you speak.

Appreciate you .. always…

snow dusting

Even if you have done it many times before, put your full heart into it. When we are doing something, especially if its a small or easy task, we tend to get sloppy. Let’s put our whole heart into everything we do, even if its something as simple as pushing a button.

I have no likes or dislikes Even for those who say “I’ll have anything” there are things that I love ” I don’t see many people getting sick without eating what they don’t like, but I often see people getting sick from eating too much of what they like. The same goes for hobbies. It is a human path that doesn’t touch and stay.

change

Being Thursday I realized it was Thursday Doors, this year I thought to maybe explore a door that grabbed my attention and discover why it did. Doors are needed to enter and leave a building but for me they also add character to the site/location. This door was off a main street of a small tourist town, I was taken by the owner’s use of natural woods to use in the window box in front of the big picture window. Decorative it allows light in, but gives privacy to the occupants inside. The door is an old wooden door with decorative trim, blending in with the other décor used on the façade… simplicity at its best.

If you enjoy doors, you may want to visit https://nofacilities.com/2022/01/13/from-a-small-seed/ this link will take you to Dan’s site No Facilities, host of this “event”

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Every day we evolve, every day we face new opportunities, every day we get to make a decision on how we spend our time. What we want to do to accomplish this moment in time…is our decision… make it worthwhile.

for example — I ask myself why I only spend 5, 10 minutes with the crows, when I am on my own time table, they are giving me pleasure, why do I rush away.? Silly thought, random moment.. but there you have it.. caw caw caw….

and that is fact!

Be with God

You can be with God by having a prayerful mind. Let’s pray for World Peace. We are all one big family. Let’s start by praying for the happiness of those around us.

red everywhere

Look around, red is the prominent colour of the month. Red spiritually effects, stability, security, grounding, courage, action, physical and emotional survival. Red – physical energy, passion, courage, power, will and desire.

Red makes you feel passionate and energized its the warmest and most dynamic of the colours – it is said to trigger opposing emotions. Seeing so much red in the fashion outlets, I had a look in my wardrobe, not a red shirt, blouse, or top.. hmm actually I seem to be surrounded by shades of black, grey and earth colours.

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things, you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

No red in this picture but to me it is not only spiritual , and energizing, it emotes warmth and a wonderful sense of quiet that gives me strength and an inner passion to love….

When every door is given a special decoration – there isn’t a door in the house that isn’t showing off a beaming “happy holidays” decoration. The owners of this special haven get better and better each year at pulling together a look that shouts “HAPPY HOLIDAYS’ to everyone who passes by, or has the pleasure of an actual indoor tour.

Thursday doors everyone.. I know this is Friday, but you can still enjoy touring other doors by visiting Dan’s site https://nofacilities.com/2021/12/02/random-duluth-doors/

Improve yourself to have a kinder heart. Do what you can to be caring and considerate to make others happy.

A home says a lot about the people who live in them. This home is filled with love and joy of many many bouncing whippets and borzoi …

I am very blessed to have these two human beings in my life and consider them family. I’m so proud of what they do and the love they give to each and every little heart that comes into their lives.

Till soon. This is the month to shine with holiday decorations, but the love that we shine out to the world with our smiles/friendships is priceless.
