Woman!

December is a month of many celebrations, often personal birthdays get lost in all the other goings on around this time of year. I know several women with birthdays end of November and in the month of December. This is for you ladies!

Men I know the above says women, but it applies to all of us, no matter the gender, or preference. Life IS.
We are all one, terms that debase or try to subject another to a “lesser” position in life, can only be made by a person who is not qualified or lacks understanding that we ARE all ONE. Somewhere in my youth, I heard an expression, about… people who live in glass houses, should not throw stones..? is that it…. If you know the correct wording, please share it, in the comments below..

The joy of expression is in the process. Of course results are important but let’s not lose sight of the rue joy that be found in the actual process. Face every task with wholehearted enthusiasm.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LADY! keep on, keep making the world a better place!

Thanksgiving

Time to reflect on all that has been happening in our lives. How far we have come since the year began. In PL, we give special thanks for all of life’s lessons, each moment is a new experience and a new awareness.

We, members, humbly express our appreciation to God and to Oshieoya-sama for the blessings of the past month and sincerely ask to be guided and protected by the grace of Oyashikiri in the coming month. We renew our determination to follow and practice our individual Miosie (Divine instructions) and to wholeheartedly share our faith with others.

Perfect Liberty -Thanksgiving service 21st each month.
we all live under the same skies/planet

ho ho hope!

Good morning everyone… the season is on us. Songs on the radio, a special channel devoted to the music of the season. On the telly we have the Hallmark channel already showing their “feel good” movies. What about us, you and me, the marketing departments, the promotions, adverts, they are all prepared. In the States I guess it will happen real quick like once their Thanksgiving is over. No I don’t usually speak this way, (real quick like) but I liked the sound. The keys flowed with a rhythm.

It is early, but the snow machines are out, I can hear them rolling down the sidewalk. In some way, form or another, we have started to think of how we will portion ourselves up to be with friends, family and loved ones. On a personal level, we are not companies that can delegate and assign different tasks to various departments to reach a goal, we have to do it for ourselves.

In a conversation recently it was suggest that I be the adult and this meant in the situation we were discussing, that I should be more responsible myself. and take action accordingly. Had me wondering just what it means to be an adult. We (as parents) were the ones rushing around getting gifts, hiding them all to make “others” (we hoped) happy an surprised on Xmas day. But……………………. what about us, the individual, what is it about being an adult that sets us apart, from the ones who have dreams and wishes. Why are we responsible for making others happy.

In PL we believe that each and everyone of us, is responsible for US. If I cannot make myself happy, how can I expect someone else to make me happy. Be true to one’s SELF. We live a moment and we move on. Also we want others to be happy and we do our best to open our hearts to them. That is why we pray for the guidance to enable us to be a “good person” and to do our best for others and society. Adult or otherwise*, these are the teachings of PL.

PL Principle 1 (of of 21) I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.

Perfect Liberty Principles.

Thursday doors

Good Thursday morning all. Three of the pictures were taken by a friend in Michigan, he is a very kind and talented individual, he knows of my “passion” for old buildings and doors”. The bright Xmas door is my latest find from the Dollar Tree (stores located here and in the States)

For more pictures of doors, and to follow https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2019/11/14/thursday-doors-november-14-2019/ Norm has a feature every Thursday, he is the brain child of Thursday Doors.

We had a great meeting yesterday at the Doll Club, even managed to raise some money for the House of Lazarus in Mountain. (food bank) Remember to give when you can.

Always live life with a smile, life is no longer a trial when we believe.

Being considerate of others is just as important as what works for you. Always be mindful of the situations of others not just your own. To have a good relationship with those around you always think of what is important to them too.

enthusiasm

A view of winter past

.. this view is from Michigan.. Friends of mine, who live in Michigan, shared this picture with me last year.

Yes, I could have gone out and shot a picture of the lovely snow on my tree branches and in my back yard.. but my skyline is a cold overcast gray. Choices.

My day starts with reading of PL’s reminder of the day. (From PL calendar*)

Your enthusiasm will pave the way. Your enthusiasm will fuel your efforts and creativity and will spread it to those around you, driving new developments.

Perfect Liberty 2019.7

When we start the day with a purpose, it helps us make choices throughout the day. Choices help us to grow. If we make one that doesn’t exactly work out as we had planned, than we simply learn from the experience, and move along. There are no bad days, busy days yes, living each moment with positive action, is always rewarding. Life is living, and living IS life.

In sickness and in health, till death do us part.

For those interested, the 2020 calendars are out, they make great gifts to friends, the cost will be the same as it was last year. If your purchasing a number of them and cannot pick them up at the church, there will likely be a postage cost …

complaining minds

Doll 1. I am so uncomfortable, the human couldn’t get me to sit up, so she lay me in this box.

Doll 2. well! have you not noticed she dressed me and left me without a head.

Doll 1. Oh! I see now.. I don’t think mine was put back on right.

Doll 2. My feet are cold, where are my shoes. My outfit is incomplete. You have shoes!

There is always a cause behind every result. Good things and bad things can all be traced back to the cause. Once you discover why things turned out a certain way, your outlook will change.

Perfect Liberty 2017.24

Neither doll has taken into consideration that they just arrived, and their owner is trying her best to figure out how, for doll #2 to put her head on. and for doll #1, when her head was assembled, for some reason, her balance was compromised Research is being done, and soon they will be as right as rain. Meanwhile neither is left naked and in bubble wrap. Shhesh! Got to love them tho’ yes?

Have a great Tuesday everyone. Sending positive happy vibes your way. Enjoy whatever you are up to.

friendship -Peace

Sometimes I save a picture from somewhere, usually I will note were I found it, this time I did not. Finding it in my folder, I thought it we a good visual for today.

Friendships are so varied, if we look at our list of friends, each is so different, with his/her own personality, and characteristics, yet when we are with them, there is that glow of friendship that happens, making whatever event or activity you are doing together.. a celebration of that friendship.

Some we see often, and some, seldom. Yet we know them and find comfort in that friendship. When you connect with another human being, keep it honest and sincere. The friendship circle will widen.

Life without friends can be very empty.

On the 1st of the month, in Perfect Liberty we celebrate and pray for World Peace.

World Peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace to the world around you.

Perfect Liberty 2012.1.
