Do everything with a prayerful mind. even if you have done your best, there are times when you wonder if it enough. that is when your prayers become most important.

Even in our toughest moments, there is a part of us, that yearns to grow into the calm that we see around us. With faith as resilient and determined as dandelions pushing through cracks in the roads and pavements.. one moment becomes another….we let go and move on.
Search out your calm today… then.. pause… enjoy and re energize
I woke to find you gone, the dim light from the early morning dawn was peaking through the freshly washed curtains…
The sun would be up soon, shining brightly on the brand new day…. the colours of the day, the outdoor activities will begin, there will be a a cache of memories to bolster my spirits ….
your footsteps, the timber of your voice, they are not here … last night when the thunder rolled through the skies…. I reached over to feel your strength, I listened for your heart beat….
a lone tear slid silently from my eyes, shutting them, does not hold back the moment of utter grief that can overwhelm and fill me with a total sense of loss…
I will be fine, the cadence of the day will remind me of the fun, the joy and laughter… the image of this moment, will fade away ….
The silver moonlight, will always filter through the rainbow of colours that create the landscapes of the day…..
yesterday, today and always. Q
Be easy going and live your life cheerfully and flexibly. strong emotions can be the cause of various troubles. always strive to have a cheerful and calm state of mind.

I give thanks and feel gratitude, that I have been blessed with friends who care … friendships that span miles… love and prayers are powerful bonds. I truly love and appreciate each and every one of you.
Where are the words. A lot of green. Blue open sky. Potential danger lurking in the vegetation. Crystal clear spring water. Overwhelming intake of visual woodland, rock,calcium deposits on dried moss, dense brush and over growth, poison ivy, snakes, and wild life that watches, waits, a sudden cloud, drops of rain, too much input on a mind that needed to zone.
I may have to work on today’s lesson.
Live radiantly as the sun. Strive to always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you,

ps. atm it is early. a whole day stretches ahead.any guesses.
Along an open highway, I came across a long forgotten saw mill, and the adjoining lumber yard.
I do remember the days when the logs would be merrily making their way down the river to the saw mill. Men would be out along the banks with long handles picks. During fairs we even had log rolling contests, everyone stood, cheering the contestants on. Nature was so much a part of our lives.
I was impatient with my sister yesterday, do I recall just why. No… but in my defense, the silence of the last many months, of voices, friendly conversations, and welcoming smiles of strangers along the roads travelled. Has left me rather empty. I am tired of always hearing only about destruction, violence, disregard for humanity, negativity, yes there has been and is a “problem” – WE – are all affected by it. But I refuse to have it the center of my life, and my reason for living is not to live in fear, distrust, and self exile.
Part of the saw mill grounds are being used by another company.
Life, the world, will continue to evolve and nature will continue its cycle of rebirth and renewal. My hope, my prayer is that we as people will once again resurface and the values of love, family and community, will emerge and be stronger then ever. Silence can be music to our hearts and souls when it is listened to with an open, caring heart. Stand up and be heard, it is time for PEACE ON EARTH and GOODWILL towards all.
A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.” “Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger… anger leads to hate… hate leads to suffering.”
Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

How has the last month been for you? Are you the same person you were, or do you feel that you have changed? How long have you been in a “changed” environment, or had your daily routine drastically edited, so that now, you are faced with the daily challenge of “living in the present”..
It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly, but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.
The waiting, the feeling of being abandoned. Not trusting our loved ones, family, friends, with our fragile state of mind. It happens. Everyone, at some stage of their journey faces uncertainty, anxiety. That feeling that you are alone.. it’s real.. to YOU. it is YOUR reality.
Only YOU can turn to your inner self, reach in past the clutter and debris that has shaped this isolation. In Perfect Liberty, we are given the tools and the support to help us, find our way.
PL can teach us how to correct our negative mental habits to improve our state of mind in order to live a healthier and happier life.
