brazil, que mais?

an early birthday surprise….

Many years ago, I would not have known who Neymar Jr was, nor would I have wanted  a futbol shirt. See how time changes us.  Time and the various experiences we live shape our development.  A stint in  a Spanish country, a visit to the French seaside, life is full of possibilities.  Each step we take outside our comfort zone, makes us stronger.

Tomorrow the 11th. in PL we will be celebrating Ancestors day.  In some countries it is already tomorrow.  For my many friends on the same time-table as myself, wake to a new day, and be thankful for who you are today.

Show your appreciation by giving back to the world around you.

(PL day 11 on our calendar)

11th. Ancestors’ Day

white-bridal-shower-flowers-2s

On the 11th of every month, we celebrate ancestors Day.  through this ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors, and those who have contributed to our lives in a way that has shaped us into the person(s) we are today.

I speak often of appreciation, and gratitude, why because it is important to realize and remember that we do have much to be thankful for.   I thank the Universe every day for the blessings in my life.  I am alive and able to experience the joys that come my way.  Sometimes I don’t realize it is a joy, I “react” but.. in the long and short of things… usually, almost always, I come to realize that the obstacle or challenge was a gift.

Sometimes we forget how wonderful something is, till it reappears in our lives.  Be open to the “adventures” that come your way.  Believe that if it is “in your face” there is a good reason for it.

Good morning on yet another sun filled day.  Going through my morning mail I had the pleasure of finding this beautiful piece of music.  As I enjoyed the ambiance it surrounded me with, I thought about Ancestors’ Day, in Perfect Liberty (PL) it takes place on the 11th of each month.

elder wisdom

Through this ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and ask for their protection and guidance se we can continue to live the PL Way.  In today’s world, it also embraces our friends, mentors,peers, all those who have through their interaction with us, have helped us understand life, and grow in a positive and meaningful way.  This ceremony is performed every 11th. at 10 am. in the church.  All ar welcome to join us.

Someone once wrote that they discovered that talking to people anywhere, whether on plans, trains, busses, standing in line at the supermarket,being open to listen, to share, smile… often turns into a valuable lesson.

When we live the PL Way,(with GOD) we always have the JOY and AWARENESS that is not affected by life’s ups and downs.

Ancestors Day is celebrated in the church of PL (Perfect Liberty on the 11th of every month)..  During and through out this ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors,

An ancestor is  someone who you are thankful was in your life, and helped form the person you are today.  They had impact and brought positive, loving “gifts” into your life.  Many people can bring awareness into our lives, usually we take for granted those who love us, we are so embraced by their love that we don’t realize till they are gone that there is a void.

Love comes in many guises, I speak not of the physical intercourse/ fornication of man, but of  a mating that begins in the heart, that is given life by mutual respect and enduring love.  Genuine caring.  To find and share in such a partnership there has to be dialogue/communication that is heartfelt and stems from mutual desires and a respect for self.  Love begins within. . .Love is trust/ faith

Time was

987a75aafae57d975db1cf0fa88c5b75

Time was…. when we all gathered to listen, learn and enjoy the experience of sharing new products, new techniques, new ideas.   Then we would have time to process the information with an informal gathering around a light refreshment table…

Having worked in a large teaching hospital, I often got to speak in such rooms,lecture rooms, or auditorium.  Talking to the assembled group, I could watch their faces, and body language, I often knew the ones who would be full of questions, and interested to know more.    lt was fun, we all got to know more about the other person, and we could talk right then and there about what we had seen or heard.

Now I’m told that often if there are still such rooms in use,  the audience is head down with technology that allows them to be miles away, even if they are sitting in the room with you.    Often there is little dialogue between the group, rather questions are asked and answered online,   Therefore others in the room do  not benefit from the exchange.

Time was when we could help one another because as individuals we all see and think in our own unique way.  Often, a different view point leads to a greater indepth understanding of a topic or situation… and in some cases, makes us even more comfortable and confident with our own decision, and chosen path.

Time was, and time is… always going to be changing.  we exists today because of the past. Today in the PL churches across the world we are celebrating Ancestor’s Day.  It is a time we have where through ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors… Services on the 11th. are at 10 a.m.. We know people cannot always attend at that time of day.. closing your eyes for a moment and silently sharing our prayer, goes a long way in bringing a peaceful moment to your day. =^_^=
