Thursday door

Life is fragile … a moment comes and goes in the blink of an eye. Today was December 1st. and at the PL church we had a 10 o’clock ceremony (every 1st of the month) where we pray for world Peace and dedicate ourselves to live as peaceful human beings in our own worlds. On the 11th. we have a ceremony to express our gratitude and appreciation for the love and virtues of our ancestors … asking for their protection and guidance so we can continue to live the PL Way.

The church is a building where we come together to pray and share the values and the philosophy of the teachings. Without people it would an empty building, it is the people who come to share in community that makes it a special play to be.

When I come up to and walk through the doors into the church, there is an immediate calm and a sense of “quiet comfort” … the doors our symbolic of “passage”… they are not ornate, but strong& sturdy, their presence give a sense of “security”… when we enter, we pass through from “the outer world” to the “spiritual” world of our true “selves”

To visit and explore the world of doors, please visit Dan’s No Facilities site, where other “door lovers” have posted their door(s) for you to appreciate and enjoy. https://nofacilities.com/2022/12/01/barns-and-news/

just out of bed …… the sky was so red I couldn’t let it happen and not take action captured on my cell ….. it was so dark so intense……. yet when transferred to my hard drive, the red was already fading into the morning clouds …. but… that is what life is…. a lifetime can disappear in the blink of an eye. …. change is an opportunity for growth… .hmmm well said!

It is not fun to be stuck in One place. Instead of being captured by what’s in front of you, strive to broaden your horizons.

Yup… we’ve had snow.. it is not staying around, “don’t kid yourself” said the wee voice… you’ve already had your first bad freezing rain drive down the icy snow covered dirt road. So… now what… Big Smile, we can build a snowman, start thinking of a rink, and yes, maybe even give some thought on how to decorate and cheer up the room(s) for the December holidays.

If you are a dog owner/walker you get to see the snow by moonlight, when the dogs need their evening “let out”… I’ve noticed how the snow has a silver almost transparent shine as it gently and silently floats and dances down from the above. There is a light that goes on over the back door when the dogs bounce out into the night, it shines over the deck… it is really very pretty.. and sooooo quiet.

At 5:30 a.m. when I start my day, I get to enjoy the early morning quiet before the activity starts up .. today being Saturday the roads I need to take to get to the conservation area will be less busy. I’m excited, I can leave earlier and spent time with the crows while they have their breakfast. It is a pleasure I allow myself…. they are so grateful. They arrive in such numbers… but still I am starting to be able to tell some of them apart, the “leaders” the noisy ones, then there are the more reserved, even have a clown or two.. their personalities are such fun to observe… especially now that they are getting used to me again. Even have a silly seagull who thinks he is part of the “morning crowd” he sticks out like a sore thumb… give credit to the crows.. they let him/her join in.

Make today a memorable day. Let’s try to put our whole heart into whatever we say or do, as our unique signature.

In PL.. precept # 19 Begin once you perceive. When a thought/feeling comes to mind and we feel we should act… PL Precept # 18 Each moment is a turning Point.

Trust your instincts… trust yourself… PL # 11 Always be with God… when we put our heart into everything we do… we grow, problems become opportunities… remember every day is a new beginning.

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of now. live your life as fully as possible without regrets.

milder today, still need those winter boots and coats .ENJOY!

cloudy overcast

Some days, the sun tries to shine through, but… no matter how hard it tries, we can see it, but the clouds simply cast their presence in a way that the day remains in shadows.

When you get stuck, take a step back. When you are able to see things objectively, your viewpoint will change and you will receive new wisdom.

I’m late….

Some days we just need more time…Like what is the rush….

Be in tune with the feelings of others. Let’s start by trying to understand other peoples’ feelings.

Put your heart into your words. Do you tend to speak in just a matter- of -fact tone? It is important to put your heart into your words

“When you meet your friend on the roadside or in the market place, let the spirt in you move your lips and direct your tongue ” (the Prophet, Kahlil Gibran)

First Snow

There is a quiet that transcends all else when you can stand in the middle of the forest and simply take in the moment. The birds are eating .. they are busy off in the distance, the snow is still falling, you are alone on the trail, everything is fresh and covered in a blanket of white. I love these moments… it was true, roads were a mess, driving wasn’t the best… but.. all of you at one time or another has had such moments where you have simply been awed by nature and her all encompassing beauty.

Start today with a fresh outlook. Even though people and situations may look the same, they are constantly changing. Start each day with a fresh mind.
