I disagreed

hello there.. =^_^=

I’m usually easy going, I do have an opinion, when asked, I have always done my best to be honest with my reply, if I disagree, I tend to soften my stand, unless it is something that really is important.

Today I was asked about whether or not our church should open for Thanksgiving service on the 21st. Contrary to what was said by someone who does not come to the church at all, I feel it should be open for those who would like to attend, observing of course, social distancing, and the wearing of a face mask. Because our members are scattered all across Canada, the actual numbers who can or would physically attend has always been low in number.

Those of us who find comfort in being in the church, some have been with the church since it was built. (the new one).. It is our home, our sanctuary . PL has always been unique in how it offers personal guidance responding to problems of our every day lives.

It is through consultations given by PL ministers, the personal guidance tailored to the individual character and situation that makes PL such a bonding experience.

That the question even needed to be asked.. (.. WOW..) Needless to say, I disagreed with the statement that we stay closed, … and I spoke out. These past weeks have made me realize, that too often, doors are closed, and the support that should be available is withdrawn.

Ministers are front line care givers. Not only the physical body needs to be addressed, now more then ever, we need to feed, heal and nurture our spirits.

Hello walls

Freedom…. is “she” gone

Togetherness … have “you” gone away

Think carefully dear friends.. There is a lot of “stuff” happening out there. Don’t let go of your dreams, and your hard won friendships, and relationships. I had a long conversation yesterday with someone who is a very special friend to me. She married my ex-husband (who is currently battling a nasty illness) I heard and listened to her… “version/life” with a man I had known so many years ago.

Life is very precious. The relationships we make at any stage of our lives, is and are, always part of us .. in some way shape or another.

Everyone has an opinion, and everyone is entitled to express and feel their thoughts and to live their dreams.

But… we do not have the right, to force our thoughts and wishes on others. Or to use our talents and means to create negativity that will cause hurt and unrest, that leads to pain, distrust and emptiness in the lives of others.

God/Universe is divine, and is for all of us. We are blessed to live in a time where we can hear almost instantly of situations happening “worlds” away. During the first and second world wars, how many families were torn apart, living day to day, not knowing where a loved one was, or what was even happening miles away.

We trusted in our faith, our beliefs, and we prayed.

Loving one another is a gift we all have been given us. Love is a feeling emotion that we have all lived. If you’ve lost it. PLEASE look for it.. Love, respect and honoring life.. is the only way we will find World Peace.

Find the tranquility in your heart.. and pass it on.

Oyashikiri

From my heart to yours… I.. Love.. YOU..

Can you name a made in Canada airplane? Did you even know Canada made airplanes? Do we have fighter planes? Just asking. =^_^=

how medication /drugs can affect your life.

As a diabetic I have learned to never take for granted that what works today, will work tomorrow. We, like the Universe are always changing. Recently, you all know that due to my meds. I had a few days/weeks of oops and wow, darn, and golly.

Changes were made, and the waves took on a more realistic ebb and flow. However, it is never that simple. All the other pieces of “me” then have to adjust to the new ripples in what can be a very calm environment. One drug was changed, to be replaced by two. Sounds simple enough, and it will be once the body adjust. Meanwhile..we practice patience and relearn to stand still while what needs to happen .. happens.

It is in these times, that we give thanks, for the blessings we have had, and the love and the friendships that we have had enrich our lives over the seasons.

Let’s find the joy in everything. Are you looking for things to complain about> Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

PL PRECEPT 21…. LIVE IN PERFECT LIBERTY.

sound of silence

Pennsylvania USA

Is there a sound to grief. When a loved one dies.. leaves our world leaving us to adjust to continuing on the journey on our own. No one told me of “grief attacks”or the immediate excruciating pain that can be triggered by a “memory”

I was not told to expect exhaustion and disruption, I was told that early grieving is perhaps the hardest work you will ever do.

Without your former companion, you no longer have a “mirror” to reflect back to you who you are and what you want in life. Now only you can furnish the answers by getting to know yourself.

-Dorothy Edgerton, ( learningto live alone)

We experience so many emotions after a loved one passes,when we think surely life is leveling … we are hit with an ongoing echo.. of loss, pain, and a fresh waves of grief.

Grieving requires an enormous energy, but pretending that you are not grieving requires even more.

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

A big thank you to my friends/family and love ones, who are reaching out to me. I love you.This moment of tears will pass.. Love heals.

May the fourth

I was told today is Star Wars Day?

It is a wonderful day, the skies are a dull gray, with the promise of wet clouds and lots of humidity and rain. Taking out the recycle to the curb I couldn’t help but look down at the empty street, both ways, the garbage bags all neatly sucked into the curb waiting for pick up. Green recycle bins stand erect little little soldiers waiting to be relieved of their waste for composting.

Yup another day in the city. Ah we will have the postal worker delivering today, (no delivery on week-ends here in Canada). Smiles at all her readers, can you just feel the excitement of “expectation” … this will be a really interesting day, and it will be fun and meaningful. Look it is has already begun, I am having morning coffee with YOU.

On a more serious note, we have people in our lives that are undergoing surgery today, dealing with medical issues, anxiety. Whatever their concerns, let us join together in prayer … I will do special prayers today at 10 a.m. Eastern. IF you are available to do so, please join me in a prayer of healing. Let us expand our spiritual energies into sharing the burden of worry with those around us.

If it is Star Wars Day, then for sure.. Let the force with be with you .. now and always.

snow dragons

can you see his /her eye.. and her friend is turning away

Ok.. so it is not easy to see, and the screen and window don’t help. But outside my window out back is deep in snow.. and I would not have gotten the same look. We’ve had over 24 hours of continuous snow fall guys! Big white fluffy stuff. In the backyard for me, it fell over at least 4 – 6 inches of water that had pooled due to our spring weather of the last few weeks.

You have to know it was very wet and heavy snow. Beautiful as it is, it is not easy to remove, or move out of the way. So I was rewarded by the snow dragon coming this morning to say hello. She has had a great time, frolicking in the snow.. All too soon for her, the season will change here… I won’t get to see her till next year.. Mighty thoughtful of her, right =^_^=

My nephew posted a wonderful picture, he calls pin hole photography. New to me, thought I’d share .. this will balance out.. my screen shot…haahaha. love my funny. Goodness me. I am giddy.. guess it’s the thought that I might get out of the house today.

There will always be a way. If you persist and be creative without giving up you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Dark forest- mixed media

dark forest 2

Good Evening everyone.  Mixed media is when an artist uses more than one media or technique to work on a canvas or project.  In this instance, I had a canvas I wanted to recycle I applied gesso, then acrylic and when that dried, I went on with water colours. I have used water colour on acrylic before, but this time I wanted a dark background, so wasn’t sure how the water colour would show.

I was pleased with the results, I sculpted the canvas first with different tools, then applied the water colour to bring out the “feeling” I wanted. My water colour pallets were the Medallic Accents (Prima) nothing too fancy, and the Prang Ovals by Dixon.

Because I basically work to express myself, I use products that appeal to me, either colour range, and price. plays a part in what I get.  One could say, self indulgence. I create to please my need to express visually what is passing through my frontal lobe. This makes for happy happy, I know I’m happy when I hear myself humming.. I paint, I hum. =^_^=

What does it mean, I’m asked, or what am I supposed to see? is another one. The short answer, is whatever you want to see. If what you see speaks to you, Enjoy. There is no rhyme or reason, my expression, whether writing, painting, or sculpting is because I want to.  I gave up a long time ago trying to please..

We learn in PL, we, WE have to be happy, it is up to us to be ourselves.  If we don’t know what we want, or what makes us happy, how on earth can we share honestly with another human being.  It is no one else fault if you are unhappy, no one can make you unhappy unless you give them the power to.

OH my.. must not get going on one of my pet philosophies… Just wanted to share with you, my happy “dark forest”  Makes me smile silly.

A holiday Monday for some, others are back to work.. hope your week-end was a good one, let us have a joyful start to another week.

4efef7f7e3503cced3dad81b5a0c3e65In quiet reflection today, I wanted to transport myself back to the Holy Land (Japan, headquarters)  if only one could simply snap one’s fingers and voila.. we would be standing where we wanted to be.

Wanting, wishing, does not make it so.  I am where I am, thousands of miles away, different continent, time zone and season.

On my mind this morning, is Rev. Toyomi Hirayama, he was the minister who did the translations for me when I met with Rev. Mitsuo Michishita.  Sometimes when we are living a moment we don’t realize just how much that space in time will actually impact our everyday until months later.

img_1759

Rev. Ise Kouji who I only met during my last visit there, was so kind so thoughtful, always a big smile.Unable to speak English, he still conveyed happiness at sharing and exchanging time with the English visitor.

The minister there from Argentina, Sensi Arthuro Higashigata, it was the same, so friendly and outgoing.  We came from all over to attend the celebrations and lectures.  The actual physical time was short .. but the learning, and discovery of self, is ongoing.

sunshine and flowersFaith will shine through, even the darkest of times, Nature will go on with her infinite art forms, and in quiet meditation, I can be “home”
