a quiet reflection

allow your heart to mend

we sometimes don’t realize just how “busy” we are… or how “noisy” our mind can be.

I awoke to the white sounds around me, gentle, steady, familiar, yet constant and comforting. Still, only in sleep do they disappear from my conscious awareness, to be replaced by the chatter of unknown voices, electronic media, and traffic during the day when I am away from home.

Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the word

Arthur Schopenhauer

The search for God is the riding around on an ox, hunting for the ox.

Buddhist proverb

Today I will think about what is important in my life. Beginning with gratitude for now. YOU are part of my now, for this I am so blessed.

Rhyolite

a secret hide-a-way

Deep within every forest is a hidden source of adventure. There are cavities in gnarled stumps, within rock walls, and under fallen trees. there is a world of woodland creatures both real and from the “underworld” of the “wee ones”. It takes years of practice and the strong desire to connect, but when we believe and persist, we are rewarded.

The earth’s connection to the regions of outer space can be found when we let our inner selves open to the vibrating energies that surround us when we walk softly amongst the trees. We must remain silent and vigilant, so that we can tune in to the frequency of “fantasy” that will naturally hook into our own force field.

No two human beings, share the same frequencies. There is an energy in every mineral, do you believe in the power of the precious and semi precious stones?

Today I was drawn to rhyolite, (a lava that can be found in volcanic areas, during the solidification process, gas bubbles are trapped inside and are filled by siliceous material such as quartz crystals, jaspers and other minerals. I found that interesting since recently I have been collecting Jasper which is the “green” form of Rhyolite and comes from Australia.

Rhyolite is an emotional balancer, it can clear away emotional wounds and scars from the past, nurtures love and stimulates clarity. Perfect for this season’s sharing. Yes… more to follow on this.

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is your and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.

this morning, the ground is covered in snow

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

Last night when I was clearing the deck it was light and fluffy. This morning, you can see it is heavy and wet. I also note the difference, top picture taken with my Canon (Power shot SX730HS) and this morning’s offerings were taken with my Huawei P20… I love my Huawei =^_^=

Have a splendid day everyone! Whatever comes your way.. I know you will shine through it all.

Each camera tells a different story…

today 22nd.

a taste of lace

The forecast said, snow this afternoon, and snow it did. I got out for one more wander ..

the peat moss is covered with all the fallen “leaves”

I could feel the stillness in the air. there was a thin layer of ice on most of the water.

There was a delicious sense of anticipation, it was cold, but not an angry cold, my fingers sought warmth in my pockets, I enjoyed the fresh air, and the brisk stirring of the teasing breeze as it tousled my hair.

From no snow to inches deep on the deck around the supper hour. Already I have been out twice to clear the deck and patio area where the dogs can run. Yes.. I will delight in snuggling down under the covers tonight.

You will find joy when you immerse yourself in your task. When you face your tasks with a can do attitude, you will be filled with enthusiasm and inspiration.

say what!

when two minds collide!

Try putting yourself in the other person’s shoes. Put aside your own convenience for the moment and think about what would make the other person happy or what would best serve their needs.

what busy bird(s) came by and left its mark while having a tasty slice of tree
these little devils I just discovered love stucco too..! there are a few in the neighbourhood who are wrecking havoc on my neighbour’s new home. The little beggar(s) comes daily to dine … the upper corner of the house, right under the eaves. I’ve never seen the like. so far nothing he(neighbour) has done has deterred the bird(s) from coming to dine.

What can give artistic pleasure to see the designs of “age” ” on an aging tree standing in the forest, does not incur the same reaction when the same craving for food and substance is applied to a home in an urban setting.

In Taoist philosophy, and in PL, there are always two sides to a coin, there is a positive/negative… just look at your hand, there is a top/bottom. the two are ONE. some difference are readily accepted, they just are. no more…no less. Your hand would not be whole without the top/bottom.

It is only natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyles. That’s what makes life interesting.

I had a sculpture (still have) on the roof outside the back porch, the same little “beggar(s) ” kept coming back, nothing I did deterred it. now I have a male head(bust) with many “openings” guarding my property. Totally unique and different. =^_^=

LIFE IS ART

Perfect Liberty, Precept #1

stand still – listen- simply enjoy

When something comes to mind, do it right away. the moment that you notice something is the best time to take care of it. If, you react quickly, your life will be more efficient.

Perfect Liberty 2020.18

It is a blessing to be busy. enjoy being busy and continue to seek more work. Being busy is God’s way of showing you that you are loved.

Offer your service instead of expecting from others. Take the initiative to do what you can to help others. Understand their needs and act swiftly.

Perfect Liberty 2020.14

At first when I saw this picture, I thought “nothing like being caught between a rock and a hard place” The second thought that came to mind was ” a rose between two thorns” Still I’m not decided.. but I am attracted to this shot. What do you see, what comes to your mind?

There is always a balance .. hard/soft, fast/slow, flowing/solid…

Have a great day everyone!
