Inspiration…

Inspiration comes to us in many guises … this picture from a clip on “things one sees only in India” had me reaching for pad and pencil.  That donkey looks pretty relaxed… considering… my dogs trust me, but if I tried to get one to ride on a motorbike with me in such fashion, I don’t know how laid back they would be. In fact I doubt that anywhere here in Canada could someone get away with riding such a small bike with two adults and a good size animal.  The gentleman is happy, seems like an everyday occurrence to the onlooker.

This was a story on a rescue of a miniature donkey (Herald Sun, Jan. 18.2010 – Kelly Ryan)  the picture of contentment.  born the size of a small beagle, a miniature donkey will not grow as big as a great dane, and will weigh in at 130kg.  Animals inspire me, they are guileless. Life is!

Some of their expressions are priceless.  When I am inspired, I feel it, there is an excitement within, a connection to a power that transcends words/logic, it simply is.  Other writers, artists, creators, tell me the same, we don’t sit down and say this is what we are going to do, we may have an idea, but when it gels, or takes “definition” we are often just as surprised as everyone else at what we have accomplished.

When listening to a good musician do a set, something he has done over and over for months on end, its good. but when he looses himself in what he is playing and simply “let’s go” there is a difference to the song/melody the music takes on a life of its own, it happens when man, the instrument and the music come together as one.  It is amazing.  When we try to force a thought or idea, we might communicate a message, but when it is allowed to flow and happen with sincerity and love, the message will be totally different.  Received a  lot differently too.

Affection is a very important part of life. A warm hug from a loving friend, a smile of recognition across a crowded room,  saying hello to a stranger who looks tired and alone… often we are polite, but are we caring, do we care?  Do we have or need affection in our lives?  Now is the perfect time to show those we care about, that we do really and truly care…. I close my eyes and hug each and every one of you.. Know you are loved.

A Testimony from Spain

This is the” voice” of a PL member in Spain,  I have left her words her own, I hope it touches you as much as it touched me to read what she has to day.  Today at church, I talked of appreciation, and now this evening I have her email, that reaffirms to me how valuable living in Perfect Liberty is.

 I entered in PL the 24th of October of 2009, thanks to a fellow worker and great friend Maria del Carmen Larios, who had returned to Spain her country after 15 years in Argentina. I net Maria del Carmen because she gave me classes of how develop better my business in Madrid, every class I observed her the way she moves and talks and how she acts doing things very different from the others, with a full philosophy of attitude, with love, generosity, being useful to the others  never waiting anything back from others. 

That power, that big example called totally my attention, besides other leaders from our company never taught us so big and so splendid, they always expect something back from us.   She always told us to be better to the society, taking a message of hope, harmony, well-being and she always taught us that everything is possible if it is done with “Art”.

I remember that many afternoons I asked her about her philosophy of life and talk about PL for hours, she said to me that it was thanks to the practice of a Japanese religion, call PL.

I astonished myself reading the prayers book and the newspapers she showed me those days. She started to share with me the PL lessons and principles.    Thanks to PL I have been able to totally understand, experience  the FAITH, because I come from a catholic religious education  and even I always have faith I could not understand it the way I do it now.

 After some months Maria del Carmen started to spread the PL religion with other colleagues and we all love it, she has done it so strongly and with so much affection that we all have began to have a better life practicing this religion.  We meet once a week in our office to pray and to receive knowledge of PL. Maria del Carmen is a big example and she shares her art with us.

Thanks to PL I am much happier in life, I always love life but during the last 3 years I got divorced and it was hard to handle because my divorce has being traumatic, long process and painful.   My 8 years old son is also a PL member  and thanks to PL we are going through this process with love and hope. Both of us feel the Oshieoya-sama blessings every day.

 I have being  in Japan this summer for the Rensei and it has being the more extraordinary experience I have ever had in life.  I have no words to explain the experience but definitively every member of PL should have the dream and bless of being once there. It has being the first time in PL history that a caravan of 6 Spanish people go to Seichi Japan.  These has being possible thanks to Maria del Carmen´s and Sensei Mizunoe blessings and effort.  Thank you to all members of PL for your prayers and well doing.

Thank you Ana for sharing your “heart” with us.  Thank Maria and say hello to everyone in Spain for us.  I hope to get to see you in the new year.
