Does a green door mean anything to you? Do you know how many green doors you have passed through in your day? Probably not. We go through a lot of doors, some more colorful than others. Some we close behind us and others are left open. A friend recently closed a door on me, the friend decided they no longer wanted to be friends. Actually if I think back, I’ve probably had a few doors closed on me -smiles – what is the saying, you can please some people some time but not all people, all the time. Something like that.
What happens when a door closes. Nothing really, of course I guess it depends on what side of the door you are on, what view you will have, but the reality is, the door is closed. You didn’t close it, but it is closed non-the-less. In my earlier years I guess I would have tried to reopen the door, I no longer feel the need to do that. I’ve come to respect that if someone decides to close a door, it is their decision, and I respect that. It doesn’t change my feelings, or my caring, because when I give or love, I do so willingly and from my heart. There are no regrets when love is pure and true.
In PL(Perfect Liberty) we learn practical guidelines for living our daily lives. These principles assist us in practicing the PL 21 Precepts. The 1st Precept is …..Life is Art…. The 1st Principle …. I will live paying careful attention,putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.
Living harmoniously with the Universe is really about being in the moment and being mindful in all we say and do. Doors whether open or closed are a beautiful reminder of movement from then to now. I like green because it is the color of growth and new beginnings.
Principle #4 – I will live with the spirit of Misasage (Devotion) working for the happiness of others.
I wish you all a very good day, whatever it is your decide to do, keep at it, don’t give up until you have accomplished what you started.
Life is here for us to enjoy and to be lived. All things come to fruition once the heart (content) and the object (form) are in accord with one another, you will be blessed with wonderful results.
The past stands proud – the present brings new life.
