Kyososai PL Founders Day

Kyososai, the PL founders Day ceremony falls on August 1st. It is a ceremony where we express our most sincere appreciation to Oshieoya and the first and second founders. Our Oshieoya passed away this past year, so this event is even more important this year for we will be remembering with appreciation and gratitude, the work that has been done to date, for the rapid realization of true World Peace.

Past years I have been in Japan for this celebration and ceremony, on this day tens of thousands of PL members from the local churches in Japan and all distant parts of the world, would gather at the PL Hoy Land, the home of our spirits, to show appreciation and pray. It is a very special occassion. This year due to the passing of Oshieoya, travel restrictions, and other factors that must be dealt with due to the world wide pandemic, there has had to be adjustments .. still the day is one that we must acknowledge and celebrate each in our own way.

When our first founder passed, he asked the teachings/philosophy be spread all over the world. “Do not grieve or mourn over my death. Rather, celebrate together with fireworks” this has been a long standing tradition. To this end the Second Founder wanting to fulfill his father’s wish, created “the Art of PL fireworks.” Every year the pilgrimage is made, the grounds fill up and after the PL Kyososai ceremony, it is followed by fireworks that have been enjoyed for years.

Wherever you are, on August 1, please join in with us in prayer and meditation, give thanks and appreciation for the significance of this day, its purpose and what it symbolizes. We more than ever need to work towards World Peace.

Also on Founders’ Day August 1. there is a ceremony held in the Peace Tower (PL Headquarters in Tondabayashi, Osaka, Japan) Where we honour the spirits of all those who lost their lives in wars, regardless of race, religion or Nationality they are memorialized at the altar of the Peace Tower. We pray for everlasting peace of humankind.

Mark your calendars, August 1. Kyososai. We all, everyone of us, want World Peace. Please check with your local church, find out what is being done, and attend if you can. If you need help or a consultation, please contact the minister in your area, or a hokyoshi. we are here for YOU. If you don’t know who to contact, get in touch with me.

Today’s calendar for the 27th.

It’s okay to think “this is where it starts” There is always a turning point. It’s important what you do from now on.

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

#20 of 21 PL Precepts
Oyashikiri

muddled

when the brain goes on overdrive and the body wants to rest

That happens to all of us at one time or another. I am no exception, the artist that did this installation many years ago, had me captivated with the sculptures used, I appreciated it at the time for the creativity, thought and ability to reproduce his/her vision in a virtual world for us all to enjoy. Now I have gone deep into my library files to find the pictures I took then because I can relate to them in a different way.

Always a very efficient and capable person, I prided myself on my organizational skills and my ability to carry out in an effective and efficient way, projects and tasks I’d undertaken. Now, years later, I find that I’m not so interested nor am I doing a very good job at multi tasking like I used to. In fact, (light bulb moment) I don’t want to. omg I’ve said it out loud, and I’m posting it in black and white. (goes thru papers looking for today’s calendar…)

Change your mind, thinking “it will be alright” – Do your best you can without being overly attached.

Perfect Liberty 2021.20

Ok this will be my mantra for the day. I have to work at accepting I am no longer in my 20’s/30’s and I no longer have the same drive or desires (ps. nor do I have the same stamina, but I still want to live like I do) (stamina that is)

i.e I liked doing everything myself… yesterday I had to ask my niece and nephew for help… Tide not only makes their products child proof, if you have arthritis in your hands.. forget trying to open their laundry jug. Bah humbug!

Ooops fell off the page.. sorry .. “change your mind, thinking “it will be alright“….. repeat …. LOL I’ll be fine.. will go walking in the rain.. it will wash away some of the cobwebs.. Do you know when its 9 o’clock pm on the west coast, it is midnight here where I live!!!!!! (yes someone had a late night!!)

Change your mind – this moment will pass.. “it will be alright”

Monday

some mornings there are no words for just how the day begins

It’s okay! God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles, but continue doing everything with sincerity.

Perfect Liberty 2021.19

Each moment is a new beginning. ” this is where the changes take place, right here and right now, in your own mind!” Only YOU can heal your life!

Now is always the start of something new. Leave the past in the past. What is important is “What you are going to do now”. Using the present as a starting point, move forward on a path towards improvement and progress.

a Sunday moment

Good Sunday morning… had myself a little fun with a software program.. and one of my photos.. The results gave me a big smile to tuck myself into bed with last night. Playtime can be fun!!!

Today is Ancestors’ Day service (ceremony) at the church. I do special prayers on this day, if you want to join me in a moment of silence mid morning, please do so…. For me it is a special time to remember my parents, my husband and all the wonderful influences who have helped me in my journey on this “earth”. Appreciation! I’m so grateful and thankful!!

The past leads to Now and Now leads to the future. Life is an accumulation of moments . Cherish each one.

Perfect Liberty 2021.11

nb*, I still do daily prayers for you, dear friends, each and everyone of you is a blessing to me. What is that saying “a day without you is a day without sunshine”

Now

The past leads to NOW and NOW leads to the future. Life is an accumulation of moments Cherish each one.

Found a dreamy little stretch of river that runs through the town of Plantagenet, Ontario.

Oyashikiri

alone on shore

because I stand alone on the shore

looking out, waiting and watching

does not mean I’m lonely

I stand alone, because it is early in the day

and in my own way

it is a time for me to pray

to stand alone looking out into the vastness of your wonders

encourages me to be strong

to embrace the distance of tomorrow

and to live today, like the waters in this river

allowing the currents to gently take me

with each wave, gently and resolutely towards

whatever shoreline you guide me to.

I know I am never really alone, for always you find a way to let me know you are listening

It is true, sometimes the world takes on a different hue

But…. always, and this is true…. always, I see the wonder that is YOU

I know I am never alone, for YOU are always with me

whether I stand, sit or lie, you are by my side

you take me where I need to be

like the tree, I am rooted in YOU

I extend my arms into your infinity

with the knowledge that

I am a but a part of the whole


Along this same shoreline, where I had been standing musing, I had moments before been along this stretch of the island, and to my wonder and joy had an encounter with a blue heron. To awed to grab for the camera, I simply drunk in the moment, as he/she up and flew away.

PL Precept # 1 – Life is Art.

PL Precept # 2 – To live is to express one’s Self.

Every day is a new canvas, on which we can express ourselves in our own way, We are all different, each one of us is unique, yet we are all connected, we are all ONE

Three years ago, I would never had been up and out walking like I am now.. I would never have had occasion to meet the wonderful people I meet now as I wander the woodlands, rivers and parks…AND I would not have reconnected with Nature the way I do now, or known and seen the wildlife that I am now. NOW is a powerful moment in time.

Much love from my heart to yours.

Thursday doors

Good morning everyone! What a wonderful day, overcast, rain, clouds, now is a prefect time to get out before the rain starts to come down in earnest. First I would like to share with you this wonderful collection of doors taken by one of my very best friends who surprised me this past year by asking me if she could show me her doors. Have known her for decades (yes plural) never knew she loved doors.!!! She had been catching up with my blogs and saw our Thursday Door feature. She told me “hey I have doors too, I love doors, can I share them with you?” You all know my response to that.. and I asked permission of her to share them all with you. =^_^=

This s today’s quote from the PL Calendar..

Tell yourself “Things happen” Even if something is inconvenient, once you accept it you will be able to move onto the next step.

Perfect Liberty 2021.8

This is an example of how wonderful life is, to know someone over the years who has become special and part of your “family” then discover that >once again, you have found another common interest< and you realize that even when we think we know it all, or assume “we know”…. we don’t. Every body around us is a multi faceted diamond. More to love and appreciate when we live with an open mind and heart!!

Doors lead us to new discoveries, about the world around us.. and in turn, about ourSELVES.

love always, now and forever

Be Positive

Don’t think “I can’t” from the start. Begin by taking the first step, then you’ll be able to see what comes next and a path will open.

Perfect Liberty 2021.6

Visualize or imagine yourself having or doing or being what you are working towards. feel, see, taste, touch, hear. Notice the reaction of those around you…. but.. make it all ok with you. No matter what other people may think or how they react. YOU matter!

Every day is a new beginning..
