Silent Sunday

Discover each person’s unique qualities. When we approach people with respect, we can understand them better and see their special qualities.

Whoa… what a “ride” the last 24 hours plus have been. However, the fog has lifted. I’m feeling human again. Sometimes we have no choice but to let the body deal with the intrusion in its own way. Certainly if it was lacking in rest, it got a lot of that in. Thank goodness for over the counter meds, i.e. Gravol and cold/flu tablets.

As you saw, I did manage to get in to cover a festival that is happening “inworld” however, I was so brain fogged, that I wrote it up on this blog instead of the virtual blog… oh well. C’est la vie… it was done.. It is one of those times when the little voice whispers.. “get over it” “move on”.

How are you doing? I finally got around to reading my e-mails and messages, thank YOU to each and everyone of you who reached out.. I appreciated your words and support.

Today I am going to try and see if I can find the turkeys and get a picture. The other day the little brats were lazing about in the P 21 parking lot.. it would have been a beautiful picture, but as soon as my car came to a stop at the end of the lot… they got off their various perches and sauntered off into the tall grasses and out of sight. No amount of sweet talk influenced them. In fact my arrival threw the raven who was visiting with them into a real temper tantrum and he began to verbally hurl his thoughts about my arrival at me. What a voice, loud and guttural, there was no missing his message or his annoyance.

Your smile can create an instant connection. A warm smile brightens everyone around you and has the power to break down barriers between people.

My smile has no effect on crows, ravens, or turkeys. just saying!

I love this piece… (my own work)

I wrote yesterday – hiding in plain sight – little did I know. The body is wonderful, when you over do or are in danger of causing serious damage to yourself… it shuts down.. In my case, it presented me with a problem I could not ignore. a whopper of migraine. So severe I had no choice but to lie down and let it fade and believe me, it was not going to make it an easy fix.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Perfect Liberty 2022.13

If you have never had a migraine or suffer from headaches.. you will not understand or know that there is only one way what works, cuz your laid out, completely incapacitated…It is the body’s way of saying STOP you haven’t been listening. I encourage you all, if you are running from one “task/chore” to another and not taking the needed time for YOU… don’t fall into the trap.. Nothing is more important than YOUR peace of mind and making time for SELF CARE.

Sept. 11 – Oneness

I sat by the water this morning and carved.
The chick-a-dee tried very hard to distract me, it was sure I must have a seed or nut somewhere on my person. Why else would I be sitting in the middle of the forest with a stick, making a mess.. all around me were the pieces of bark and wood that were falling away as I diligently smoothed the surface I was working on.

Good morning… started this yesterday.. it is another day. I enjoyed it, today I won’t have time to sit and bask in a quiet meditation by the water… I will drive out and put feed out for the birds and then head for church. I am only putting out small portions, enough to keep the area “interesting” for them… There is still an abundance of food in the forest for them that they can forage and gather for the winter. I want to share with them, not change their normal behaviours…

Today is Ancestors Day, our Ancestors’ Day ceremony at church will take place at 10 a.m. we celebrate this “day” every 11th of the month. One of our members was rushed to hospital last night, please add in your prayers today, a word of support and healing for all in our community that require that extra energy today. Physical distance is not a factor in a spiritual connection. WE are all ONE.

You can be with God by having a prayerful mind. Let’s pray for World Peace. We are all one big family. Let’s start by praying for the happiness of those around us.

PL (Perfect Liberty) is International, let’s us reach out in prayer today – express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and ask for their protection and guidance so we can continue to live to live the PL WAY.

When life sends you a message you can’t ignore

Express yourself clearly so others can understand you. When you can’t communicate clearly, it can lead to problems. Always express yourself carefully to avoid any misunderstandings

Perfect Liberty 2022.9

Stop hesitating … It is more natural for you to be direct and say what is on your mind. Holding back or hesitating is unnecessary.

Perfect Liberty 2017.27

When I think that life couldn’t get any more “complex” or “disturbing” the Universe sends me a “ray of sunshine”.. a text from a friend, a raven will fly across my path and call out to me… sometimes I think it is telling me to “smarten up”… to listen with an open heart… or a “critter” will wander out of the forest and waddle past me showing great unconcern of my presence…

What is time when we have forever…

simply said… I believe – I truly do

Chinese Lanterns, celebrations, happiness, they are such a joyful plant, I have the little lanterns at the entrance to my home, and in the house. I know fall is not far when they begin to show up, their happy colour peeking out from the green leaves. There is a lot of unhappiness in the world these days – share a smile, spread happiness – be open to listening – the only constant in life is change.

Think “now is the time” Instead of “it’s no use now” don’t give up by thinking it’s too late. Tell yourself that there is more that can be done.

Is Chinese lantern plant edible?

The fruits are edible and suprisingly, are higher in vitamin C than lemons. Care should be taken though, as all other parts of the plant are poisonous. The plant also has a long history of medicinal uses.

Thursday…choices

Which door would give you the greatest pleasure to enter…. or attract your attention… why? Each offers a different experience.. doors are special that way..=^-^=

Help the people around you smile more. Always strive to make those around you smile. That will bring you joy too.

listening

Face the speaker, make eye contact and listen carefully. Listening to people is also a form of expression. Listen with Makoto (sincerity)

Listening is an art – Let’s maintain and work on our skill of listening.

simplicity

A trip downtown yesterday seemed like a good idea. A friend drove me downtown to a very trendy busy, location .. where I could search out cigars for a friend. Simple enough.. the idea seemed good to me at the time, the place is bustling with tourists, visitors, shoppers and residents ..honestly I lead such a quiet life I was totally unprepared for the hustle bustle and activity that was a constant buzz and roar from every direction. On one occasion as I talked with a shop owner in the shop .. she had to leave me to close the door for all the hollering, and cheering that was going on outside.

There is a stadium, and fairgrounds located in the area I was in, the shopping area is built up around it. The main street snakes for miles and ends up at parliament hill if one travels north. For those of you who know Ottawa I was in the Glebe around Lansdowne… Of course, it was a Saturday, but being retired, it just skipped my mind, Saturday to me is like any other day, I just “live it” “do what needs doing” I’m sure many of you can relate to this.

If you have been following me for years, you will recall that one of my activities was to have Brian drive me downtown and then I would walk home, 5, 8 miles probably more. Taking my time, lingering, window browsing, simply exploring. Since his passing I have not been downtown at all, never mind on a bus.

It didn’t take me long yesterday to realize that I was no longer that same person I was those many years ago…. the throngs of people, the heat, the noise, it was jarring. Ladies I didn’t even go into the shops I so enjoyed before, even the wonderful Glebe Trotters (shoe store) I ignored. I dug deep found the change required for a bus ($3.75) and hopped on a bus that would take me to the Rideau Centre (big shopping centre near Parliament ..) where I would than transfer to the bus that would bring me a block from home.

I had a delicious salad in a trendy shop $15 with glass of ice water to keep me hydrated, then began the bus ride home. At the Rideau Centre, there was over a half hour wait for the bus I needed. I had my fill of people watching by the time the bus came. I think I will no longer argue or poohpaaa when I’m told I’ve become a recluse, I now know without a doubt, I am happier in the woodlands, or by river/lake/stream where life is quieter and nature and wildlife abound.

Think of the timing before you say “but….” When stating your opinion, make sure you are being respectful of others opinions. Be mindful of this when you speak.

Perfect Liberty 2022.14

Today’s calendar quote… is about timing yes, perhaps had I gone mid week and not on a Saturday morning my downtown adventure would have been less hectic, busy… it also has to do with adapting to change, not only in my surroundings but IN my “self”

Positive – I had a wonderful experience in the store itself, the owner of this shop is also the owner of two other cigar boutiques in the city. I knew nothing about cigars .. I now know that there are a lot of cigar smokers out there and that it is a hobby with a lot of history and dimension. Yesterday I learned about the different colours of cigars, (the plant leaves) more and more I’m discovering about the tobacco world,. Life will keep on progressing… I will adjust … my choice though.. my preference… simplicity.

You can only change yourself. Before you start telling people how they should do things, think of how you can be more flexible.

Perfect Liberty 2022.13

Friends of mine are travelling in the States, sending back wonderful photos of the sights they are discovering. I asked Nick for this picture to share because when I saw it.. I saw and felt such wonder at the magnificence of this natural monument to change. The colours, the cleavage carved over time, centuries of weather carvings, that happened in miniscule micro moments. Nothing can compare to the abstract wonders Nature presents us on a daily basis.

Love comes when we least expect it. be ready when it does come. Prepare to be ready to nourish love, be open and receptive…

In the picture of this natural wonder that Nick took, I felt and saw raw passion, and tho’ the surface is hard to the touch, it left me with the impression of softness, tenderness and the meeting of yin/yang in harmony and balance.
