Peaceful moment

Sydney Australiaa quote by Khalil Gibran

Yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream

PL Calendar – day 18     Look forward to what’s ahead – There is no use brooding over the past  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.

Trees reaching towards the sky, as far as the eye can see,

lost in the bush, no not me, but lost in the moment, yes

I travel the distance to visit the open skies and the wild abandon of the tall-growing trees

In any direction I head, I know that just around the bend, I will find a crop of trees

Yesterday with the azure skies and dazzling sunshine, it was anyone’s guess just where my day would lead, without a care, I let my spirit roam.  I soon found myself on a highway headed south-west.  Crossing the 416 I knew I would stop for food in Kemptville.  Taking myself out is always a surprise.  A&W and fries, and lots of cold water. yum.

Happy is different for everyone.  Find yours today.  Every day is a new opportunity to find and express, appreciation, and gratitude for the “happy” in our lives.

Did I spot something in the field?  No, I caught the moment.  For me it was joyful.

PL Calendar, day 16   Don’t hold anything back; give it your all

Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy. Then, things will develop in a new direction.

I love my life, and all the goodness that surrounds me.  You are a part of this goodness, when you share with me, I appreciate the time you took to visit my blog, and thrilled to bits when you drop in and say hi, or express your views.  Life is good when we appreciate those around us.  Life is good when we love unconditionally.

Good morning, bom dia, at the start of another beautiful day. 8 in my world is considered a lucky number.  I just happened to have my camera ready when Nick had his back turned.  Nick is one of a pair.  Mel his beautiful and talented wife was, we soon discovered, watching us from other part of the museum where she was stuck behind a short wall.  It was my good fortune that the two decided to take a day trip up to visit. Heck they only live some 11, 12 hours away.  Let me tell you they are very special.

I got to see a lot of interesting exhibits as we wandered the museum, but the greatest gift for me was to share time with friends that I have grown to love.  They bring such caring and open sharing when they are visiting.  Every visit is like a homecoming.  The laughter is genuine, such friendships are treasured.

IMG_1515Possessions can be acquired,  They can be enjoyed and cared for, but having good friends, and time spent in warm, comforting camaraderie.  That is a blessing.  It was a wonderful visit, I thank them both.

PL calendar day 7    Don’t strain, don’t rush, and don’t be greedy

When you are doing something, you may rush things to get good results quickly.  Instead, relax and enjoy he process.

I can only imagine how as the friendship grows, we will appreciate even more our differences, and our sameness.

One of life’s lessons, to be practiced and lived  – appreciate differences, everyone is unique, share with an open heart.

How are you

 

IMG_0885While out driving the other day. I reflected on that question myself.  We are asked, at least I am, on a fairly regular basis.  I was out driving the back roads, and needed to find my way, or get my bearings.  After a while, the farm land was starting to all look the same. In other words I was getting weary, and needed a change.  Searching the skies I saw a steeple off in the distance, in the countryside here, both in Quebec and Ontario, you can always count on a church steeple to guide you towards “civilization”

It was a peaceful day for me, and certainly the quiet appeal of the church sitting, basking in the sun, added to my “mood”.  The manicured lawn and large paved entrance was a huge contrast to the visions I had been enjoying on the back roads. Another visual of the differences in life.

I am fine, thank you to all who have asked. Life IS different, my personal space has been reconfigured.  To that end, all my past experiences, adventures, and lessons have served me well.  Possibly the enormity of the change has not quiet fully dawned on me, but it is present.  I feel it, and I do intellectually “know” it.  So yes I am fine, but am I REALLY fine,I think it is too soon to tell.  No one can predict the future. And, every day is NEW.

No two friendships are alike, therefore, how I am although influenced at times by my immediate circle of friends, changes, why, because at the core of it all is ME.  And the secret I am sharing, is that Me, myself and I is constantly being kept busy with the help of the Universe, with reminders that I am never alone.  Service yesterday at the church, where the ceremony of appreciation to our Ancestors and those who have helped us become who we are, was performed.  For me was very calming and spiritually refreshing.

For that is a focused prayer of appreciation and thanks to all my family. friends, past and present who make me the person I am today. I like me, and I really and truly do appreciate each and every one of you, for you touch me in ways that transcend mortal definitions.  Love is PEACE.

Wednesday 12th

How many greens can you count….

PL Day 12     Carry out what you believe in

Once you’ve prepared everything to the best of your ability seize any opportunity that comes your way, take action without hesitation.  Express yourself to the fullest.

The world is not only full of colour, but provides us with an abundance of textures, variation on shades and so much more,  Yes there is beauty in a flower, but the subtle shading of the vegetation that often is the back drop for a flower(s), is more lasting, and enduring.  Changing with the season we can never be bored.  We need to see beyond transient beauty.  The icing though good, and often very pretty, would be nothing without the cake. It exists because of the cake.

dreams

 

8.28_001Once more I saw the open doorway, showing me the path to the other side, this time I dared to wander closer.

8.28_003

There was a silence in the air, yet, there was a breeze and the bird (on the right) made a soft cooing sound as he flew by.  His bright feathers so fitting against the blue skies

8.28_004

As I walked my feet made no sound, yet the grass beneath my feet was soft and lush.

8.28_005

The pathway was inviting, I gladly let it lead the way.

8.28_010

Around each corner a new discovery.  Can you imagine my delight.

8.28_007

I felt rather than saw the light that seemed to guide me along through the growth that surrounded me on all side.  I knew no fear, I felt content and aware of the life around me.

8.28_009

There was much to see and take in. Such creativity, such vision.

8.28_011

When I entered a great hall, I felt small, I was one of many to stand  within the walls, I stood alone at that moment in time, yet in my heart I knew, I was not alone. I was surrounded by each and every one of you.  See you are here now. . Just not at the moment I was there. (smiles and winks)

8.28_014.png

There is much to see, enjoy, learn, and share as we grow as human beings and wandering souls.  Don’t be afraid to share and love the ALL that you are.  Dreams are part of our reality.  Whether you believe, or not.

5 a.m wake up call

 

IMG_2175 icelandIceland, so beautiful, so far away,

so natural so inviting, so far away,

5 a,m, here, now, the whole house is stirring  there is nothing to do but get up and start the day.

Bom dia, bonjour, allo, there is no worries that there will be few hours in my day.  I have plenty  hours stretching out before me, no excuses to not getting more work done in the clearing up, cleaning out of my physical spaces.

Btw I have not cropped or changed the pictures, I am using them just the say my cousin Brian sent them to me.  He and Jon are honeymooning, I get to reap the rewards of their wonderful pictures  they travel from place to place.  There is something to be said of the arm-chair traveller, no packing, no jostling at busy airports, no line ups, etc.. At some time or other we have all been there.

Oh dear I am going to have to look at just what is I that box on the top shelf.  I am sure you have all had that experience too. Life is full of these little “treats”  reminder to self.. Find the happy in all that you do, to change direction I thought I would go make the bed, There I discovered a big lump !

he graciously got himself up and went somewhere else to have his lie in.  Very considerate.

It is now going on seven, I have been successful in removing some of the clutter, but fear not, there is still more for me to do once I take this lot away.  happy finding I found where I had put my sloth stamps away.

PL Principle #1  I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto into all I say and do (sincerity)

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things

To members of the PL community, tomorrow is the 11th, we will be celebrating Ancestors Day, service will be at 10 a.m.

Have a great day everyone, if your day is almost over.  I trust it was a good one for you.

I pray for the happiness and well BEing of all.  We are all ONE.
