mindfulness

quiet reflection

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.

Find compassion with others by thinking of things you have in common: ” Just like me, this person wishes to be well and happy” Then take a moment to send them some kind wishes.

a quide to mindfulness 3..22.

the night is dark, my thoughts simple

In the quiet as I sit in the evening shadow

I know the light in the room is You

I need only close my eyes to feel your presence

with gratitude and appreciation I allow the night to draw me in

There is a calm that wrapes like a balm around my restless heart

When I allow my mind to clear of all that is shallow/unnecessary

and simply listen

Good Morning , Bom dia,

I still have ths Dr. Hook song, Storms never last do they darling playing in my head, it just won’t go away. As I took my camera for its morning stroll it had been lying neglected for days on my work table, it happily let me play with different settings, I wasn’t really trying to do anything in particular, nor did I see anyrhing that had me intrigued.

Hello -is it me you’re looking for (Lionel Ritchie)

The best timing is when you notice. When you notice something, it is God sending you a message. Act right away so you don’t miss good timing.

survival

These little gems are delighting the viewers by peaking up along the trails between all the many shades and hues of greens/browns/grays that are in view as I amble along the trail looking for wood to carve. I am searching out smaller pieces of wood that I can use on the “storm art ” I am visualizing and want to put on canvas.

After the storm there are twigs, branches, all kinds of debris to sort through.. the need is to slow my pace and explore each side of the trail as I make my way slowly along. Everyday I walk (sometimes the same trail) and every day it is always different.

***** Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful ****

Take action without thinking too hard. No matter how hard you try to foresee the future, you really don’t know how things will turn out. Do your best and see how it plays out.

**** Dwell in possibility****

invasion has started

Canadian mosquito,,, wicked pest

they are tiny,hungry, sting, bite and are aggressive

my heartfelt appreciation to all the birds that feed on these nasties.

When you face difficulties start with anything you can do. When you ar able to grasp the situation, you will surely be able to notice something that you can do.

morning missive from Japan. –

πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€ 2022/05/12 [Lilac] The flower language is “an important friend.” There are a lot of people around you. “Treasure” is hidden. “Treasure” doesn’t make money. You’re involved, you’re accepted, you’re cared for, you’re cheered up, Sometimes they worry and encourage me. Such an important companion is a treasure that money can never buy ☺️ And you are someone’s treasure. Your kindness is my treasureπŸ₯°πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈπŸ€πŸŒΈ

Re- mosquitos .. started noticing them the other day. It wasn’t too bad, the odd bit of buzzing, but yesterday they were bolder, I suspect with each passing day they will get more persistent. Time to find another way to get my walking in. Something to ponder on. for sure.. long sleeves, neautral colours.. note to self, they bite through some clothing, somehow they even manage to get into your hair and will find any open areas to get at your skin. I am not exaggerating their zeal.

Have a grand day everyone, we have been experiencing weather in the 80’s here. day after day, we are not in the summer season yet. Forecast is for sunny skies and a lot of record breaking heat.

hello spring…

The woodland floor is starting to send out lovely green beauties… I discovered a patch in the sunlight the other day when walking around a water logged area .. that needed to be avoided… =^_^= always something fun to find when on a discovery walk.

The ribs are still angry with me from my foray yesterday. So today I will refrain from picking up large/medium,, long pieces of fallen trees to build my little “wood stands” along the trails. The other day I met a racoon, saw a hawk, what will I find today =^_^=… I will have to leave the camera .. it will be too heavy for me with my ribs being so “tender” (yes even with my “cotton” vest that supports the weight)

Reminder… on the 21st. Thanksgiving/day of Appreciation service will be at 7 pm. for those that can attend.

Blues

It’s easier to adapt to something when we find it interesting. No matter how enjoyable a situation is, a slight change in our attitude can make it boring. Let’s face any situation with curiosity and enthusiasm.

spread your wings

Overwhelmed – exhausted – Irritable – oh dear… sound familiar if I look back over the last couple of days, I’d say that those adjectives resonate with me. I have had a feeling that nags at me, what is it you may ask, but I cannot put A word to it. It just lingers, asked if it is negativity … I’d say no.

Happen to you? Know the feeling? I decided it was time to turn roadblocks into resources. It is OK to be tired, especially if you are on the go for hours at a time… it is OK to get annoyed, BUT it is not ok if you start wearing this irritability day in and day out.

Today’s lesson…

Express yourself clearly so others can understand you. When you can’t communicate clearly, it can lead to problems, always express yourself carefully to avoid any misunderstanding.

Perfect Liberty 2022.9

Hello! this applies not only to how we are with others, but how we communicate and listen to ourselves! Yes, be aware of YOU. I was often darn right “ugly” in my interactions with a few people the last couple of days.. Having the car banged up, upset me, having to go through all the admin stuff, calling the insurance, arranging for an estimate etc. I let my unproductive negativity affect me. Time for me to give myself a “time out”… LOL no I didn’t go sit in the corner to sit staring at a blank wall.. altho’ the people that had to deal with me and my bad mood, and terrible behaviour.. probably would have loved to shut the door on me or slam down the phone.

It was time to put the struggling behind, admit to being less than a joy to be around, and do some serious “meditation/reflection” – I was starting to see every curve ball as a crisis… a challenge instead of an opportunity.

Today’s lesson for me, is to understand my own behavior, to listen and pay attention to my own inner grumblings and do something about it. LOL yes.. that is why I went looking for wings.. time to soar into space. allow the negative debris to fall away. Clear my mind .. enjoy the vastness of the myriad possibilities today will bring.

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.
