marriage

 

Shinzen Japanese Garden, Yosemite_002

Marriage between two individuals, is a sacred bond.  It is a commitment of Oneness in a world of constant change. Like friendships that last, it is a growing of hearts, a learning in understanding, and a blessing of life, lived to its fullest potential.

Partners learn and grow together.  Without knowing it they help shape and form their loved one’s knowledge and wisdom of what “togetherness” is.  No two people are alike, and no two couples are the same.  What is constant in love that stays true, is unconditional faith, trust, caring, and acceptance.  Respect being a key ingredient.

Love is a four letter world, with endless definitions.

I have been overwhelmed with the thoughtful, caring, sharing you have all showered me with.  I know I am not alone, and never will be, you all fill my world with such support, kindness and affection.

For those who have asked, service will be on PL Ancestor’s day (the 11th) we will do the service at the church (10a.m.) for Ancestor’s day,  then Rev. Eugene will do a special prayer for Brian.  Brian took such solace in prayer,  when he was still able to read, he read the Precepts and Principles regularly.  Prayer brought comfort and consolation.

Unconditional Love lives on forever

the earthly flame may flicker and die

but we, like the majesty,

of the Universe

will live on, in the mountains, lakes and streams

for all Eternity

me and you

april 25. Q china dream

There are days when I am not really the person that I think I am.  Instead I am far away in another land.

On one hand, I feel no pain, and roam free across the plains

On the other, I am grounded, focused on the sounds all around  me

who am I really, I can be here and everywhere

nothing can hold me back, there is nothing that I lack

china April 25_008

Take my hand, let us bond in forever land

you and me, me and you

“PL Calendar day 1 ” Harmony leads to World Peace

It is important to lie in harmony with our surroundings.  The basis of a peaceful society is to maintain harmonious relationships.

It is true, no matter where we are, how far the distance, I will always love YOU.

I dream, I walk, I talk

snap, crackle, pop

the mind is active taking off in all directions

time, to astral travel and make corrections

pop, crackle snap,

oh dear, earth to outer space

time to chat

I need a face to face

Day 30   PL Calendar

USE YOUR RESULTS TO MAKE THE NEXT TIME EVEN BETTER

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the next time.

Standing under the branches of the towering trees

looking out, to my left and then  my right

shades of green everywhere, bright sunlight dancing through

outstretched limbs that reach for the sky, in prayer

how can I cry, it is

so peaceful, so serene

alone with my thoughts,  surrounded by nature’s embrace

life is full, it is plentiful, it is full of grace

a child of the Universe, I am, ONE with GOD

Wednesday -noise

Unwanted noise

beautiful trees ripped out

hedges disappear

in one day

single family home

gone

quiet older community

invaded

trees that stood for years

home to  the “wild” life

city dwellers gone

no more sunlight

through vibrant branches

now, rumbling

loud mechanical noiseVal 2.10.17 postcard

Last year when my Mother was bidding farewell to her years on earth, my sister who was staying with her. Passed the time, drawing and colouring, memories of another time.

Change happen, with “progress” comes destruction, to “make way” for “infill”  buildings that are meant to fill in where older homes , single family homes with laneways, garages that held the cars that used to fit inside them, and usually have pretty front lawns, and backyards, big enough for small patios and gardens, either filled with flowers in season, or vegetables.

Now these homes when their owners pass away, are taken over by builders who tear them down, and put in two homes on a lot that was meant for one.  Usually, architecture that is cold and sterile.  Forget a lawn or garden spaces. Cement, pavement and more cold man-made materials, usually in various shades of grays and blacks.  Garages if there, are usually part of the main floor, still usually too small for the bigger cars of today, so they end up always outside parked on the single space of the paved front of the dwelling.

Sad, but that is progress. If you are near, or can easily get to green space.  Treasure it. Take the time to enjoy it. Listen to the birds when they visit (if they do) enjoy the fresh earthly smells of spring,  and watch as the young flowers unfold to embrace another season of “life”

Life, can be fleeting.  Live in the moment.  Enjoy each and every second of your day.  don’t wait till it fades away.

PL Precept #11    Always be with God.

PL Precept # 16  All things progress and develop.

PL #18  Each Moment is a turning point.

O estado de alerta entusiasma       Calendario PL  #15

Being attentive makes life more enjoyable

Seja algo trivial ou grandioso, viva dando atencao a todos os detalhes.  Isso gera bem-estar.

Live life paying careful attention to every detail, be it big or small.  By doing so, you will be able to experience the subtle joy of things.

Some dreams never get completed

others fade into distant memories

when we live in the now

every moment is a dream come true
