No, not lost where you don’t know where you are, just “lost” when you stand in one place and feel that at that moment, you are in many places. The shadows, the lush vegetation, the multiple shades of green. AND of course the almost hidden old wooden building in the background.
My adventure companion and I had arrived in Merrickville, her for ice cream, and me, for no real reason but to share time with a friend and enjoy the outing. Then I saw this place and was instantly transported to many places at once. I saw New Hampshire, the Laurentians, southern NY state, it was an amazing feeling, it wrapped itself in a hug and vanished,
Such moments are not uncommon, but they are not “ordinary” we have to be tuned in to “receive the frequency”. Be present in your every day life. Live each moment! Live with appreciation .. give thanks!
PL day 11 (calendar)
BE THANKFUL FOR WHO YOU ARE TODAY
You are standing here thanks to your ancestors, your parents and those who have supported you through your life. Show your appreciation by giving back to the world around you.
PL Day 15 Being Attentive makes life more enjoyable
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 in things.
Had I been paying careful attention at the time I put this picture in my family folder, I would have noted who sent it to me, and where they were at the time =<>=
That said, isn’t this just the most magnificent of artistry.
Be at peace with the world today.
Do you find yourself waiting for the right moment. Waiting for the “plan” to come together, then find out days, weeks later that “by golly”, it is not done yet, or you’ve lost the thread of that “great” idea?”
The PL Day 12 Carry Out What you believe in..
Once you have prepared everything to the best of your ability, seize any opportunity that comes your way and take action without hesitation. Express yourself to the fullest.
There are times, when we can fool others, but try as we might, we cannot fool ourselves. Deep down, we know ourselves, even when we try to do otherwise… The truth is within.
PL Precept #7 Everything exists in Relativity.
Some times I am just too cute for words! =^_^=
Day 2 PL Calendar – Be forever Young and Seek New Challenges
The world is constantly in motion and never rests. Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the every changing world.
I so truly believe in these words. One of the reasons I enjoy Second Life so much (virtual world) click here is the opportunities it gives me to express my artistic self, as well, as be anyone, or any “creature” I want. The creative opportunities are endless.
Every day, we live our lives usually dealing with the immediate needs that come our way. To keep our senses sharp and be ready to adapt, we have to be willing to “let go” of old habits, and to allow new ideas and expressions to colour our world.
Little steps. One day at a time.
In the PL community there is always someone to listen. Someone to “help” .. someone to “listen”
Sometimes we open a door, and we are hit with an unexpected view. One we had no control over, but we’re now faced with the “What the ?!?!?!”
The camera of course was the first thought, take pictures, details, catch it before it is touched or anyone comes. Then talk to the workers, who are pretending not to be aware of your actions.
Keep calm, ask for an explanation. PL Precept #4 Being annoyed limits your expression.
Listen with intent. Pay careful attention to what is said. Appreciate, and remember to say Thank YOU.
Then return to your office, make notes, and then # 1. call the city, #2 call the owner of the property who the workers are working with. Being polite, and asking for answers and suggestions to the problem will usually inspire others to be helpful.
PL Precept #5 One’s self is lost by being emotional
Sincerity, faith and trust … are important ingredients to a life that is “balanced”
I’m not saying it is always easy, but they become part of your daily responses to opportunities when they are practiced on a regular basis.
Blessings of the day to each and everyone of you. May much happiness shine on you day from morning to night.
Day 20 PL Calendar
You are YOU, Others are Others
You have your own way of doing things, and others have their way of doing things. Don’t worry about what other people will say. Simply take care of the task at hand.
And that is the reality. That is just the way it is. Our experiences, our past shapes our future…. Make each moment count. Live each day with new “eyes” … be open to new experiences, choices, we all have them…
Tomorrow is the 21st For members of Perfect Liberty, we celebrate with a Thanksgiving Service. We give thanks and show our appreciation for the blessings of the past month, while sincerely renewing our determination to follow and practice the Precepts and Principles of PL.
PL Precept #21 Live in Perfect Liberty
Good Morning everyone!
Timing.. Today’s calendar is about Timing
PL Calendar day 19
The Moment you notice is the best timing
Procrastinating will only weigh you down. The best tie to do something is when you notice it.
