7th day, 7th month

To many 7 is a lucky number. There are numerologist that believe 7 is so perfect and powerful that it represents a connection to the Universe. It is usually very positive, ie. happiness, renewal and perfection. 7 = heaven,

Another definition of 7 in numerology, is that 7 stands for both deep and wise. Asking questions, researching, listening, and sensing are all special skills that 7 uses in its search for awareness.

Here we are today is the 7th. day of the 7th month.! It is said and I lean towards this, that number 7 leans more towards an intellectual approach to life, rather than an emotional one. Being a Virgo, I like it can be an analytical number, it enjoys gathering and filtering information to find an answer. or answers. =^_^= Powerful intuition, you bet!

Take on the task even though you are busy. You are busy because you are needed. Actively, positively and creatively juggle your time to fit the new task in.

PL Precept #20 Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter.

Thanks Chris for permission to use this photo, it reminded me of the many places that I explored with my husband during the lazy summer days of June, July… we’d seek out these out of the way, off the main road little pieces of paradise.

Not one of the trees in the wilderness are the same, each finds its place in the sun and thrives the best it can. Together they present a unified front, against a backdrop of blues skies and fluffy sculptures of cloud.

The cooling waters and unique shoreline, all combine to welcome the visitor, with awe inspiring vistas. Crystal clear air, a melody of natures songs filter through the day. It is peaceful, and when we take time to simply BE in this environment, are inner smile expands.. Our cares, our concerns vanish..

PL Precept # 11 Always be with God.

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.

Be Enthusiastic

If you are willing to deal wth things, you will be encouraged to do so, and will be given a new path. Everything that happens before you is God’s work.

It is important to take the first step, saying “OK, let’s do it” ) translation Mariko Inagaki

Your willingness to learn will make you shine even brighter. As long as you are motivated to learn more, you will continue to progress in life.

It is not always easy to stay positive, to continue towards “the light” when you feel encumbered or surrounded by negativity. In PL we are fortunate to have other members who will offer support and reach out to us, when the light dims… My friend Mariko in Japan, reminds me, that together, when we believe in Oshieoyasma, all things are possible.

Let us practice this lesson with enthusiasm.

hidden

Naikoon Rainforest in BC

Where can I go to hide.. so lush, so mysterious. … what sights and sounds will I find, will my sense be overwhelmed… gosh.. this is somewhere to discover… Think I’ll start a bucket list.

What reason to hide..non really… but there are times.. when I want to disappear for awhile.. (from day to day) and explore another reality in this wonderful world of ours.

BC is a long way from home. I never knew such a wonderful place existed, have any of you ever been ? if so, can you tell me about it?

Lately it has been a time of discovery, new and old experiences, have taken on new meaning, new depth, and my analytical mind is processing it all. Since my health related problems seem to be rectifying themselves I am feeling the slow return of my “old” self.. the one that loved exploring and adding to my already plentiful life experience.

I want to relearn, quiet, meditation, and nature in all its many forms. Life is for living, life is for sharing, life is beautiful. Travel with me.. let’s share and grow in LOVE for life. Make it a commitment.

happy yummy

fresh baked tea biscuit, smothered in butter, and raw honey

That sounds soooo good. The doctor is not worried about my cough, or cracked and at times absent voice. Fixing the diabetic numbers is more important. The fact that for the last many years, every time I am under the weather or allergies hit.. my voice goes wonky (pointed out by my son this morning)…. leaves me wanting a hot steaming fresh out of the oven tea biscuit. lathered with butter and creamy honey… A good cuppa ice water (told to drink lots of water during the day) I’m sure that is to make sure that my new diuretic pill has something to work with…. a fresh brisk walk around Costco.. (a couple of times to make even more steps for my exercise log) makes for a full day.

For supper .. fresh roasted yellow spuds.. tossed in a bit of vinegar and Japanese salt. Steamed green beans… again the Japanese salt and black peppercorns… served as side dishes for the fresh tender trout fillets I got when at Costco.

If you get the idea that I’m hungry and anxiously waiting for my food to be ready… You are so right. Sometimes we just have to give in to the urge to treat our tummies.

How was your day.??

I thank the Universe for the blessings I have received so far today, and for the delicious meal that will be on my plate. (hhmmmm soon!!)

It is important to say “thank you”… Everything that appears in front of you is all material for you to improve yourself, whether it is food, people or things. Learn to accept everything, whether it is something you like or not.

deafening silence

the waiting

Along an open highway, I came across a long forgotten saw mill, and the adjoining lumber yard.

what a beautiful reminder of what was.. a story of activity of rumbling trucks, long beds of logs coming to to processed.
I stood in the silence of the day, taking in the beauty of the old structure. A man came to ask me if I was OK, could he help me with anything? I thanked him.. I appreciated his request, but nothing will bring back the past, or the honest toil and labout of men/women who worked side by side to bring us what we now go to big box stores to pick out for our projects.

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.
