Bet I didn't fool you at all, I snuck in a picture of rust. I know. Sometimes after a sleep, the marbles don't always nestle back into their beds right side up. =^_^=
Yes for those of us living where we have distinct seasons, the coming months will give us many varieties of ways to show off our whites. Let’s make it fun, journal or capture the special whites.. after all, white does come in many shades, and each one of us will have a different appreciation of the hues and vistas we come across.
Even if you have done it many times before, put your full heart into it. (Makoto) When we are doing something, especially if it’s 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.
Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.
It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.
In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.
In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.
PL Principle 1 (of of 21) I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
Sometimes I save a picture from somewhere, usually I will note were I found it, this time I did not. Finding it in my folder, I thought it we a good visual for today.
Friendships are so varied, if we look at our list of friends, each is so different, with his/her own personality, and characteristics, yet when we are with them, there is that glow of friendship that happens, making whatever event or activity you are doing together.. a celebration of that friendship.
Some we see often, and some, seldom. Yet we know them and find comfort in that friendship. When you connect with another human being, keep it honest and sincere. The friendship circle will widen.
Life without friends can be very empty.
On the 1st of the month, in Perfect Liberty we celebrate and pray for World Peace.
World Peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace to the world around you.
Sometimes we see the changes we are experiencing … and sometimes, we are so caught up in living the moment, we actually see only the frame we are in.
Note to self.. focus on present, but also, expand your awareness to include more than just your SELF.
The shortcut to progress is to listen with a humble mind. If you are stuck in your own ways, you will eventually become bogged down. Let’s remember to be humble, learning what we can from the knowledge, advice and suggestions of others.
You have heard of writer’s block. The fall season for me unleashes ideas and thoughts like the rushing of water … such as you see above. It is the opposite to writer’s block, yet in some ways it is the same. Why. The ideas are so many and the desire to create so strong, nothing happens.
Time to step back and assimilate the many incoming thoughts and messages. Put some order into the thoughts so that you can process how best to express what is happening in your “head”
Your surroundings are a mirror of your thoughts. when you think “this is going to be hard” then your situation will become difficult \, instead think “let’s do this!” and face your situation with determination. then you will be surprised to see how smoothly things go.
Perfect Liberty 30,2019
I am so blessed with the thoughtful caring friends n my life. Two such angels arrived yesterday, seeing them, sharing with them and enjoying their so cherished gift of friendship, has already started to open spaces in my mind, allowing for some sense or order.
In stepping back from my “self” for awhile, how I want to express all these ideas that have come with the fall season and the various displays of colour, will start to appear in a way that I can explore and experiment.
It is exciting I have been gathering canvas, pulling out my paints, we shall see.
Meanwhile, this has not been a wordless Wednesday, but it is Wednesday the 16th. Have a wonderful day enjoy whatever you do… Share a smile,your inner beauty will shine through.
Driving along one day, I spied a happy face. It meant a bit of a climb, but I wanted a close up. Happy under the sun, we shared several of moments in contemplation, the stones, the surroundings and I. Happiness is being alive, to take in and bask in the wonder of the world around us. Where ever you may be. Day or night, you are never alone.
Make every moment count!
