thinking = happiness

Bom dia,  um maravilhosa dia para todos noa – A happy start to the week.

This is me thinking…. yeah really thinking dec.3 18

When I am working on project, and in full gear, this is what one of my work spaces looks like.  I used to ask myself how I could  really find anything in what my husband used to shudder at, (to him it was just a mess)  However I think my best when I see my stuff that I have out.  My eyes take everything in and the mind processes it.  My mind is my very own personal computer.  It has its own way of  computing.

I am happy to say, that over the years, I have grown to love my mind, and accept with great appreciation that it is mine.  As an artist, we learn that when we create, it is our own expression, no one elses, ours.  Certainly if we have to share our environment, we have to learn to define our own space.    All that said, when I walked into my office this morning, I sighed with relief that my thinking space was waiting and ready for me.

When I do clear things up, it feels barren the comfort of being “in progress”  is itching to get back in.

Remember we are all different.  We all have our own way of doing things.  My Mother’s one constant in life (to me anyway) was,” if people or someone can’t accept you for who you are, then they aren’t keepers”.

Bed time is uncluttered.  Open space, no distractions. Balance in my day.

Here we go.  Tim Horton’s in Ireland. No more can we say, “only in Canada” the world has changed so much over the years.  What hasn’t changed is the bond of friendship that is ongoing, and is built and groomed with unconditional love.  Acceptance, and respect.

Yesterday in PL, being the first of the month, we celebrated with the PL service of Peace.  Every month, on the 1st day of the month. at 10 a.m. all over the world where there is a church,  or a member of  PL, time is made to pray for world peace.  Through the service at the church we pray for World Peace and rededicate ourselves to live as a peaceful human being, in our own worlds, which includes, our home, school, work and communities.

When we love with makoto “sincerity” and dedication of purpose, we are blessed with love in our lives that continues to shine, forever and always.  It is not measured in earthly ways, days, months, years, it is, simply life itself. Like breathing in and out. we don’t count how often we breathe in and out during our days and nights, we just Breathe …. Love should be in our action, words and hearts.  Always.

Life is Art.  PL Precept #1

Harmony leads to world peace

Bom dia, feliz sexta feira, happy Friday everyone.

What is with the well, well, well…  my reaction to a news story this morning, where one police officer shot another officer. Well, well, well, really, I can’t go beyond my reaction. It is  stunner, perhaps because in my past law enforcement was part of my life, I don’t know.  I have been away from this field for too many year, to know what the climate is like these days.  This is life isn’t it, we are calmly going about our daily business, when out of the blue, you hear something, or see something, that startles, or gives you cause for pause.

Life is happening all around us, some we hear about,, some we don’t, other times, it is right before us, and we never see it, or know that it is happening. But it is. A reminder that we don’t know what is around that corner, we know NOW. For myself, I know that I have to focus more on the now, be focused/aware, it is a fine art, and one that needs practicing every day.

PL calendar day 30     Use your results to make the next time even better

Whether things turn out perfectly or not, the important thing is to take what you’ve learned and apply it the net time.

Zen moments

Their only thought is to BE.

Not feeling 100% I took to my bed early, I thought I would listen to my body, and simply lie down.

Life has a way of getting in the way.

PL calendar day 27

Put all of your effort into the NOW.

You can only do your absolute best right this moment; not in the past, not in the future, but NOW

Ompah

 

Sometimes when I need to remember a destination that still evokes the spirit of open country, freedom to roam, with an abundance of natural landscapes, I dig out my trips to Ompah.  We would find what some would call a road, but in fact would be perhaps a skidoo trail sitting idle till the winter season descended allowing the snow vehicles to travel into the inviting dense woodlands.  We ruined many a muffler till we got the truck.  Such were our wanderings.  The winter season would not call us back, the snow machines are too noisy.   Although I’m sure that had the mood struck, we would have unearthed our snowshoes and tramped our way somewhere into the waiting arms of Mother Nature.

That is the advantage of the snow machines, they traverse land that is unseen during the spring, summer and fall months.  There is a season for everyone. It is finding that bit of paradise.  Each and every one of us, will describe our personal wonderland with a reverent awe, yet to another, they can’t imagine it at all.
