oh no!

Oh No she cried.. Go away, – Come again another day…the sun isn’t up yet – Let me stay in bed – Only for a little while longer – But – the dragon’s voice grew stronger – you have things to do – You can’t just lie in bed – Why ?? Why? Why?? – She tried pulling the covers over her head – the dragon pulled back his head and blew a gentle nudge her way – There are things to do and you will be late – now be a good girl and get out of bed – She knew he was right – the dragon was always right – But dragon wasn’t finished – Close your eyes for 30 seconds… go on… do as I say… with a sigh she closed her eyes…. She felt a gentle kiss on her forehead and smiled…. – Now you can get up his quiet calming voice spoke, she felt his love and knew he would be there with her to face the day – With a smile on her face and in her heart she rose to meet the day.

Begin each day with love…

That is the dragon way….

Praying before taking action changes the outcome. Have clear wishes and do your best. Then something new will open up for you.

30th

An evening of music, of quiet, of no rushing around, just chilling. I had a full day catching up on “to do” activities, it had been too hot/humid to be outside. I did go out and prune back overly aggressive vines, ground cover, I lasted less than an hour. In clearing up “stuff”, in the electronic age, we have so much “trash” accumulated on hard drives, our phones etc. I came across the above “captured moment” in a folder dated 2015… wow.. couldn’t even remember who, where, when, what… obviously I had fun writing and creating the piece… but … such is life… another reason for really enjoying and living the moments .. because… every day is a new day..

No I didn’t delete it, I’ll come across it again someday, maybe… and when I do.. who knows.. I might recall who, what, where, when, and what inspired that moment, .. but if I don’t.. it is OK too.. why, cuz … wow .. how I see it, is if I knew such happiness then… such moments do exist, and nothing is impossible.

Let’s have a humble mind. Once you think, “that’s good enough,” you become blind to the opportunities to me more creative.

I have always tried to live each moment with “Makoto” (Sincerity) – in this way … I seldom have regrets.. from a very early age it was instilled in me to always be focused on now .. and do my best. My Dad used to tell me .. if I pay attention NOW, I wouldn’t have to study and cram to remember for exams, I’d know because I paid attention at the time.. Plus when you are in the moment, you see and hear exactly what is being said and happening…. trying to recall something days, months years later… well, we all know… it is not the same.

REMiNDER – service on the 1st is at 7 pm not in the morning.

a door J’adore

I stand here ready – I am not pretty- nor am I handsome – I am a door

I function – I open and I close – I may not be considered attractive – but I do my job – I am a door

I am different, I am unique – there was purpose in my making – I am a door

– now dear reader – you can say

I just met a door so interesting, so individualistic in character, it only made sense, to create a verse

to celebrate how ordinary can be extraordinary when it becomes a door.

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.

Perfect Liberty 2022.11

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

virtual photography (Second Life) Q

think, now

Think “Now is the time” Instead of “it’s no use now”. don’t give up by thinking it’s too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.

Perfect Liberty 2022.7

Have you noticed that late fall, early winter, there is a quiet that falls over the woodlands as it adapts to its nakedness. Without the camouflage of foliage we see the true “bones” of the forest. Driving along the road if we drive slowly and look down between the rows and isles of the growth, we see “paths” and “possibilities” that we don’t get to enjoy in the spring, summer months. Every season has its “reason”

meditation

There are so many ways to meditate, it is such a personal way to re-group and reconnect with one’s own inner thoughts/feelings. I marvel at how easy it is to fall out of the “habit” of being “aware”. there was a time I schooled myself to always be aware, taking time to enjoy each step along the way of whatever day I was experiencing.

We often lean towards what is easy. The first time I was told I was “lazy” … I really was offended, “me lazy” surely this was not an accurate assessment of “me”… but if I am truly honest with myself, I have moments. my choices are not always based on “productivity”. But then, why does one need to always be productive. =^_^=

As I slowly navigate this world I am in now, I realize that my situation, my personal space, everything that had been once “normal” is now actually just “clutter” Time has passed, I am coming out of a time of “loss” and “mourning”, the world around me seems different. + It is, the younger generations have different understanding of what and where the world is today… the older travellers … have all come from different backgrounds, their life experiences are etched on their faces, the tell tale shadows of the past linger in their eyes.

When I stand still in the middle of the woodlands, in whatever weather, just stand there, not moving, just listening, my eyes looking nowhere in particular, just taking in the moment, I feel the stillness wash over me, the birds, chipmunks, squirrels, all return to their business of “being” and we all become part of NOW. That moment in time for me is a meditation, it can last seconds, minutes, there is no “clock” just that space where the tranquility of “BEing” is all there is.

Experiencing such moments, means that I can recall that “silence” “stillness” at other times, it is a place I like to be. In such times of “contentment” I realize that you are part of that moment, because you are part of me. We are all ONE with the Universe, with our unique rhythms, sometimes we are in sync, and other times we are simply ships passing in the night. Either way, you are part of my world, and like the seasons, the ebb and flow of life will keep us harmonized.

Till soon

PS, Sunday service being canceled simply means, we do our prayers and offer appreciation on our own. A Hokyoshi is only a call or text away if you need us.

adventure near water

the dream of escape

With the water gently lapping against the ship, the moonlight dancing across your half naked body there is a lull in the passing of time. Nowhere to go, nowhere to be…, what reason is there for this moment, none… none at all.

Except with the daylight … comes reality The boat is still docked, the waves still nudge gently against her, we are not lying onboard, at least not in the state of undress

what is real and what is the dream both are realities for they exist in our heads .. our hearts Always we will see the world through our own personal lens

The beauty is… no one .. can take away our personal realities, so if I love you with all of my heart, all of me….. then nothing and no one can take that away from me.

I will always love you. no more, no less…. today is now … Now is, always and forever….

No more.. no less….

There are always choices in life. We are always faced with a bridge.. doesn’t matter what side of the bridge you are on.. there is always a middle, top and bottom. They all come together in US.

till soon

Wednesday

Turbulence – energy of life!
lazy drifting- all part of the ONE

Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.

now and always

A Sunday moment

sit by me,

we can cool our feet in the water

while we waste away the day

we need not speak

no words would do

physically we are two

but, in our hearts we are one

this one moment, is an eternity.

You light up my life…
