Are we ever ready for the changing seasons… Do we ever get all we want to get done in time for the change in the weather and the changes in our lives that we know will happen…. Animals live in the moment, they accept what is happening and deal with it. They have no choice but to interact with the moment when it happens. We on the other hand, have too much going on in our gray matter, we think too much. Or in some cases, we don’t think at all, we miss “it” all together.
Multitasking reduces your joy by half. When doing something give it your all. There is joy in everything.
When they dry, I bring them in .. the leaves have gone, there only remains the lanterns on their stems.. they make lovely centre pieces, or arrangements that brighten up the seasons when we are indoors more. I was told they hold spiritual pods inside that have gathered their energy from the sun during their growing season. =^_^= Because I love the idea of having the natural elements of the Universe sprinkled throughout my living space, these are “gems” that I enjoy all year long.
Do everything willingly and joyfully. Your upbeat attitude will make things more cheerful and enjoyable.

Refreshing greetings not only enrich your mind, but also make the other person’s heart feel good. When you say hello, stretch your chest, raise your head and cheer up with a smile.
That is what happens, when another day begins. Take each moment as it comes.
Even on rainy days – If you get depressed if it rains, switch your mind so that you can enjoy rainy days on days when it rains. The weather doesn’t change the way you want…. but… you can change your mind.
In the cold gray of the morning light, I got myself ready to find the elusive wild turkeys… Nope, not a one did I see, but I did get some good shots in before the pending rain would start. I used the time to try different settings on this new camera of mine, and to get used to holding it, its big and I have small hands. I like “doing” .. used to enjoy getting up everyday to go to work too. Yup I’m “one of those” It is not “work” when you love what you do ..
What is “normal” is different for each individual. Everyone has a different way of thinking and doing. It’s important to understand others’ feelings.
Yesterday as we drove towards our destination, we were greeted along the way with the colour changing of the leaves here in Canada where I live. When I returned and visited my e-mails, there was a message from my dear friend in Japan .. this is along her drive when she is returning home.. very different scenery from me. Took me back to when I was visiting in Japan, and how I marvelled at the landscapes, and visions that were all so new to me. I had never seen rice paddies and was totally enchanted by them when I walked into the town and saw that the land behind houses was used for growing rice, not gardens and backyards like we see here.
Her pictures reminded me of how differently other people live, depending on where they are located in the world. Yet, tho’ we live separated by miles (physical distance) our hearts and minds are in sync, and we share wonderful friendships.
My friend in Brazil sends me the most amazing pictures of the blossoms that she finds in and around her home, it can be cold and snow here and in my mail will arrive the brilliant colours of a tropical flower.. always accompanied by the wonderful sage lessons of PL. PL (Perfect Liberty) is a philosophy that is practiced all around the world, it keeps us all connected and accompanied along our spiritual paths, and in our day to day lives.
Love, caring, thoughtfulness, the joy of sharing, that is Universal, when we share in the joys of love, we take another step towards World Peace. there is no one definition for Love, it simply IS… have yourself an amazing day!
Don’t think “I can’t” from the start. Begin by taking the first step, then you’ll be able to see what comes next and a path will open.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Quebec has to be the most beautiful Province in Canada. BC is great and so is Nfld. but Quebec has this rustic charm that never fails to enchant. AND because the further inland you go in the Province, the more you experience the cultural difference, the feeling of being “elsewhere” (other than in English Canada) is front and centre. If you ever want a special experience, visit “la Belle Province” – not for the big city experience tho’, unless you visit Montreal or Quebec City, but for geographical landscapes,(nature) rivers, lakes, skiing (winter) hunting/fishing during the right seasons… it is a breath of fresh air.
Always pray “for the happiness of others and Society’ Praying only for your own wishes is not the true way we should be. Strive to do things for the sake of others, and pray for their happiness as well.
Depending on where you are in the city and surrounding areas, the colours are beginning to deepen .. In some areas, there is a rainbow of colour, yet you drive out west of the downtown core and the greens are still dominant. Change is on its way, you can feel it in the air, smell it on the breeze that brings a chill and hovers before drifting off. The Robins are being social, coming out and being more present around us when we are on the trails. Every day I hear the sound of the crows as they inspect and search out their winter “resorts”… yesterday another photographer was patiently waiting for a “big” as she called it, wood pecker that had been frequenting the feeder area.
PL Precept 7 Everything exists in relativity….
PL Precept # 16 All things progress and develop.
Today being the 1st, in PL it is when the PL ceremony for Peace is performed – today at 10 a.m. if you can’t make it to church, please take a moment to pray for world peace. Remember to show appreciation and give thanks for yesterday, and NOW.
Each person’s peace leads to world peace. First of all, you have to be happy. That happiness will spread and be the foundation of World Peace.

You have the opportunity every day to start a new canvas..
“To do” or “not to do” There is only one way. Although we may have many choices in front of us, in the end we must all make a single decision. Once you have made up your mind, move forward without hesitation.
