Today in PL, we celebrate (the 1st of every month) with a special ceremony with a Day of Peace ceremony. Through the world peace ceremony, we pray for World Peace and dedicate ourselves to live as peaceful human beings in our own worlds, which include our home, school, work and community.
Service is at 10 a.m. for those unable to join us at the church, please say a silent prayer wherever you are focused on peace for all.
World peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is a part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace in the world around you.

Tomorrow, December 2nd, there will be an evening ceremony as we joyfully celebrate Oshieoya-sama’s birthday. 7 PM.
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
we sometimes don’t realize just how “busy” we are… or how “noisy” our mind can be.
I awoke to the white sounds around me, gentle, steady, familiar, yet constant and comforting. Still, only in sleep do they disappear from my conscious awareness, to be replaced by the chatter of unknown voices, electronic media, and traffic during the day when I am away from home.
Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the word
The search for God is the riding around on an ox, hunting for the ox.
Today I will think about what is important in my life. Beginning with gratitude for now. YOU are part of my now, for this I am so blessed.
Deep within every forest is a hidden source of adventure. There are cavities in gnarled stumps, within rock walls, and under fallen trees. there is a world of woodland creatures both real and from the “underworld” of the “wee ones”. It takes years of practice and the strong desire to connect, but when we believe and persist, we are rewarded.
The earth’s connection to the regions of outer space can be found when we let our inner selves open to the vibrating energies that surround us when we walk softly amongst the trees. We must remain silent and vigilant, so that we can tune in to the frequency of “fantasy” that will naturally hook into our own force field.
No two human beings, share the same frequencies. There is an energy in every mineral, do you believe in the power of the precious and semi precious stones?
Today I was drawn to rhyolite, (a lava that can be found in volcanic areas, during the solidification process, gas bubbles are trapped inside and are filled by siliceous material such as quartz crystals, jaspers and other minerals. I found that interesting since recently I have been collecting Jasper which is the “green” form of Rhyolite and comes from Australia.
Rhyolite is an emotional balancer, it can clear away emotional wounds and scars from the past, nurtures love and stimulates clarity. Perfect for this season’s sharing. Yes… more to follow on this.
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 your and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.
There will always be a way. if you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

I have gone many times to Merrickville, but it was only on my last visit there that I came across this giraffe. I stood for some time looking at it, before I walked down the street to get a better look. Years ago I had attempted to do some sculptures with chicken wire, I know the effort and time I had to put in to accomplish what results I did get.
This tall imposing giraffe was a marvel to me. There were not that many people about that day, so I was able to stand and enjoy him/her for some time. The posture, the face, the use of the stones all came together so beautifully. I’m sorry now that I did not attempt to find the owner and perhaps the creator…. (note to self.. a revisit soon or when weather permits and the season is right.)
Begin each day with a renewed sense of appreciation. Always remember that you are here today thanks to God, and thanks to the many people around you. Let’s make each day meaningful by starting out with a feeling of gratitude.
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.
The plows had not been by, driving was slow, one car had been down the road earlier in the day, closer to one of the main roads there had been perhaps, two, three sets of tracks leading out… but going towards the conservation area, it was only the one set of tracks leading into the woodlands. I wondered who else had make this journey, guess I would know the answer when I arrived at my destination.
This little fellow was just two arm lengths away, he was not concerned with anything but getting at his feed. I stood as still as I could, I wanted the birds to continue to dine. Not one but two blue jays almost landed on me. I was thrilled beyond words to have them so close*. Off to my right I saw the red cardinal patiently waiting to see what I would do, and for the opportunity to swoop in .. the little chicks off course, were flying in and out they are daily visitors to this area…
I have been spoken to about driving out during a snowfall, to an area that is off the main roadways. I truly appreciate and am grateful that there is concern. On the drive, I kept telling myself, I should consider getting special tires for such excursions. Then the other voice, asked how often I planned on doing such activity. =^_^= there is always a voice of reason within our heads..
The quiet solitude of the morning, the happy greeting from the birds, their enjoyment of the seeds, the moment of acceptance of my presence. This for me is so rewarding, so satisfying. I trust in God that my activities will be guided. I believe that one is meant to do what they are called on to do. Sometimes, it means going out of my way, sometimes, it means being very diligent and careful in how I do something. BUT do it I will. Why, because life is to enjoy, to live,
I do not want to put anyone else in danger, or ask that they do what I do.. but when the objective is to be with and in nature.. to enjoy the open space, feel the land around me, it is like a meditation in movement, it is a communication with the Universe
By the time I was ready to leave and head back, I noticed there were two other cars besides mine and the first car in the parking area. =^_^= I am not alone in my search for PEACE and ONENESS with the UNIVERSE.
I wonder if I still have my snowshoes.. must go look, and also.. reminder.. put a small shovel in the trunk of the car.
Happy American Thanksgiving, enjoy your day however you decide to live it. Be SAFE, be Happy .. stay focused.. live with PEACE in your heart.
