Tuesday 31st

Be flexible to change. A flexible way of thinking and responding is one of the keys to getting along with others.

Cherish this moment, this time, this day. People keep growing as time goes on. Cherish your self expression.

Develop new ideas through your imagination – softly and flexibly. If you could find a way to add a twist, you will have more joy.

Put Makoto even into small things. Don’t let things go with, “oh well”. You will have a different outcome if you put Makoto

Winter White

Not a soul did I meet on the trail. One young lad came along on a winter snow bike (wide tires made for biking snow trails) he disappeared within seconds, only to be seen in the distance later on when I was on the trail that loops back to the parking lot. It was overcast, skies were rather dull and the clouds were plentiful, never-the-less it was like a mini winter wonderland. The birds were quiet, it was a tranquil walk that led me past the familiar and loved winter white evergreen and trees, along the trail.

Look.. this is the red belly woodpecker, .. sorry no. it is not the one hanging around the feeders, but one that Photographer Hien T. Nguyen ( Neihtn2012) took, I have permission to share it with you. https://neihtn.wordpress.com/2023/01/22/five-seconds/

Yes, patience is a virtue. Birders at P23 yesterday found our little guy flying around enjoying himself yesterday. Be aware that the feeders have also been drawing a few sightings of not so welcome guests… but then… to meet the very diverse community, you’ll have to drop by won’t you. =^_^=

Being asked for a favour is a chance. When someone asks for a favour from you, this is a chance for you to help others. Face the chance proactively.

Happy New Year. Rabbit

Good Sunday morning. This little quote hangs on the back door, I see it every time I use the back door. Let me rephrase … I pass by it everytime I use the back door. this morning when I let the dogs out, the Chinese New Year red celebration good luck symbol caught my attention, and I lifted it to straighten it and saw the words that I had hung there months ago. Why had I covered it up… I have been walking past it and not seeing it. What a good message to start my year with.

Discover something new today. have a willingness and an interest ... start your day with excitement.

Resolve – A firm determination to do something… decide firmly on a course of action.

The most famous Rabbit in chinese culture is probably the “jade rabbit” who resides in t he Moon Palace. “Legend has it that three fairy sages transformed the selves into starving old beggars, they came across a fox, a monkey and a rabbit. The beggars asked for food, the Fox and Monkey both had food and shared it. The Rabbit had nothing to share with them… wanting them to be well and not to starve to death, he jumped into a fire determined to save them. The sages were so moved by the Rabbits sacrifice that with their powers they revived the rabbit and granted it eternal life. sending it to live in the Moon palace with Chang Er the Moon fairy.

Some say on a full moon if you look closely you will see the beautiful Chang Er fairy and the cheerful Jade Rabbit singing together in the Moon Palace. The Chinese it is said are fascinated by the moon and celebrate Moon Festival on the 15th day of the eight lunar month – families watch the full moon together. It is also the romantic festival for lovers. Looking at the moon links them together.

Happiness is sharing life with you… Always and forever.

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR

Today is also the 21st. which in PL is when we celebrate the most important service of the month. Thanksgiving/Day / aka. Day of appreciation. we offer our appreciation and pray to be physically and spiritually renewed.

Be grateful for everything. express gratitude. Be open to new possibilities. Accept everything with appreciation. Small changes can bring about a fresh outlook

Perfect Liberty 2023.21

The Lunar new year is a celebration of “family” of “community” we begin weeks before the actual full moon, we clean our homes, (literally/figuratively) our “minds” “hearts”.. we examine, we reflect on the past year, and humbly express our apperception to God/Universe for all the blessings of the past year/month and sincerely ask to be guided and protected by the grace of Oyashikiri in the coming days/weeks/months.

People take time off, business’s close not for the day but often for a week or more so that family members that need to travel, can make their way home for the holiday/celebrations that will take place in their home towns/villages etc.

It is a joyous time, if you are blessed to have community/family to share the time with, all the better, but it is also a time (in my case) for spiritual renewal, and self acceptance/understanding and appreciation …

Please note… Due to the service this evening at the church, there will be no Sunday service tomorrow. Service tonight will be at 7 pm if you can make it.

Where ever you are, whatever you are doing – may the Universe smile down on you and yours now and always bringing much Happiness ……Joy……Prosperity and ….. Good Health.

snap, another tree is down

Life is an accumulation of events… In my world, I encounter fallen trees, and learn to adjust and work around them, So that I can revel and enjoy the beauty of such moments as the other morning.

“Thank you” again and again. It feels great if someone tells you “Thank you”, even many times. By repeating this, become a person who comes up with the words “thank you” naturally.

Small change can bring about a fresh outlook. Are you just living each day and getting into a rut? By making small changes in the things you do, your day to day life can become fresh and exciting.

WHEN THE MIND WON’T STOP

How many times, how often has it happened, you are so tired, you just want to lie down and sleep… the mind just won’t stop chattering. Ok some of the information may be interesting, and a tiny wee bit may be new to you… but …. it (chatter) just won’t stop … and you are exhausted. What do you do, what can you do… nothing …

Think about it, the more you focus on it, the more attention it (chatter/noise) gets.. the more frustrated/ annoyed you get..

PL Precept # 5 One’s self is lost by being emotional

Get up,stop trying to force quiet… do something else, distract your attention, never mind the time, or trying to make something happen that isn’t happening.. Let it go!

PL Precept # 7 Everything exists in relativity.

PL Precept # 16 All things progress and develop

Just walking into another room … sit down at the dining room table, have a glass of warm milk, I have a small piece of felt that I put in the back of a small canvas I had lying around that I had not put to use yet, I have five dice that sit there.. I pick them up and throw them.. I get three tries… I t ry for 5 of a kind of course, but I see what turns up. could be I will end up with only a pair .. maybe a full house.. doesn’t matter, it is the distraction, of rolling the dice, hearing them, watching for what turns up etc. A few throws and I’m usually ready to head back to bed.. the cycle is broken, the bed looks welcoming, and 7 out of 10… I will drift off to sleep. definitely I will have a different mind space.

Give importance to listening, looking, thinking, doing and speaking. Don’t be entrenched in your own thoughts … you will not hear or catch the hints/inspiration from others

Is there mind pollution? what do you think?

Away

– season changes.. and for awhile – there are no leaves.

When taking on a task, start fresh, without being biased or jumping to conclusions. when your thinking is too rigid, you will be unable to deal with ideas in a flexible and constructive way. Always strive to look at things with a fresh mind.
