Happy Thursday Everyone!

Welcome another day!  I overheard a conversation the other day, noooo  I was not eavesdropping I was happily shopping but aware of my surroundings, two women were in conversation right  next to me, hard not to hear.  One woman was complaining of the heat (it was hot, in the 90’s) the other one listened, but as soon as the first stopped talking, went right into what a mess her life was in.  This was a conversation that they both have had before because the other woman then jumped right in with her list of complaints too. Both agreeing that nothing ever changes..  I tried moving away to another rack, but they were also shopping and seemed to moved near me again, still with the same dialogue.

These women were strangers to me, and I’m sure that it was great to be able to have a friend to unload to, however, they were sad and disappointed with their current situations when the conversation began, and it seemed that it would go on being so …. I briefly closed my eyes and offered up a thank you to the heavens for the blessings in my life.  I love life with all the joys and challenges it brings. That’s me, being who I am, I wish everyone  was as happy as I am, in PL (Perfect Liberty)  we strive to live ….. Precept #1 – Life is Art  in all we do.  Precept #10 – Love YOURSELF and  OTHERS.

itstained glass windowsThe  PL lesson of yesterday was  to set higher goals and work to improve ourselves.   Today’s lesson, is to always express our true selves with honesty and integrity.

Why start the day with a meditation, thought, prayer ………………….because it helps set the tone for the day, YOUR day.  Life is not always a ball of laughs, and we are not always happy with the cards we were dealt.  However,  reality is…… perception…… and only YOU have the ability to change that perception.  No one else can do it for you.

Focus on your true feelings, and express yourself with makoto (sincerity) and honesty.  Then listen to what you’ve said, and to what you are feeling.

Once you’e made up your mind, move forward without hesitation.  Believe in your”SELF”.

Bonjour! Hey, how you doing today?  So happy to share this moment with you.

Feelings what a topic to meditate on. What a range , what a gamut of feelings to explore. smiles and send you love…..  Feelings are unique to each and everyone of us.  The depth, the breadth of our emotions belong to us. We need to learn to own them.  So easy to say, so hard sometimes to do.  AND, dear friend not only do we have to own our own feelings, we have to accept differences and respect the feelings of others.  We all have different ways of thinking and feeling.

Proverbs of Solomon  25 : 11  A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.

Sayings of the wise  24 : 26  an honest answer is like a kiss on the lips

China, Fuqing TempleWhen I was  younger, this place or one like it was  in my dreams, this is where I wanted to study and be, (China, Fuqing temple). I never got there physically, but today I found this photograph and my feelings of yesterday, came rushing back.  Value your ability to feel, feelings are part of who you are.  Own them, allow them to flourish and grow, even feelings that hurt or are painful, bring a lesson and their own rewards.  Trust and believe in the blessings of the Universe.  May you feel the love that surrounds you, today and always.   Amen.  Oyashikiri
