Chop Suey Saturday

off in the distance,

under the afternoon skies

they saw the same grouping

that they were looking at

just down the path

half covered by vines

Neither spoke

they stood rooted on the spot

another mystery

to be uncovered

Yvette arrived earlier

Clementine was due next week

excitement was building

Rosie promised she would

let them explore her

chest of drawers

they still had no idea

where the music came from

it happened when she was

working in her room,

and now, double statues

3 maidens high above

and 3 maidens on the ground

somewhere there was a clue

quietly no words spoken

they turned

walking deeper into the gardens.

neither saw the chest hidden further in

from where they had been standing.

PL Precept # 15  All is a mirror

simplicity – white

As we drove along, the winding road seemed to disappear into a wall of fog.  There was a surreal atmosphere of quiet that wrapped itself around the truck.  We paused in our conversation to take notice of our surroundings.

Suddenly ahead we saw flashing lights.  2 men were standing by a truck, the drivers side door was open.  One man wore a bright yellow vest with a big fluorescent red X emblazoned on his back.  As we watched, he helped the other man put ona imiliar vest..  Ahead of the stopped truck was a big lit up panel blocking the way,  It too sported a big red X.

Slowing down, my husband rolled down his window… the one man who was already dressed in the special outfit, walked over to the truck, asking us where we were headed. When told where we were headed, he said, that we could go no further on the road we were on, but needed to take a detour that would be identified  when we turned the truck around.

My husband ever the news-hound, asked for information, and surprisingly we were told that there was a man with a weapon barricaded up ahead, and the whole area was cordoned off…  As we made our way to the detour, we thought about what we had been told.   Here we were out for a leisurely drive, content in our “world” and minutes away, was a very serious scene being played out.  Children were involved, the “suspect” was holed up in an area very close to a school.

This is very serious, we knew it was happening, but there was nothing we could do but proceed with our own “day” and let the “drama” play out as it may.  This was early afternoon, we later heard on the news, that the incident ended shortly after 5, no one was injured.  Maybe not physically, but what kind of “mental” stress was placed on the people who were involved in the incident.

On our way back, the fog had lifted, and the sun was shining.  It brought home for me, how important it is to live each moment with appreciation.  We never know what is around the corner.

NB* we had a wonderful drive, the detour proved to be a meandering back road that was delightful. WE did get to Montebello, my sister, was able to tick the destination off of her to see list. In life, there is always BALANCE . and as noted, by the time we were heading back, the sun was shining and skies were blue.

Words on Wednesday,

amon-in-ottawa

a child’s expression

so much innocence

the emotion just happens

as we mature

somewhere, some how

we find ways

to hide or not show

how we truly feel

and in time

we ourselves forget

that the facade

is really just that

an outer face

and not what

we are feeling

at all

Cherokee native morning song

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.

ligh bulbs

Light bulb moments… we’ve all experienced them from time to time.. that Ahhhh moment… that moment where an awareness goes “smack” and we  wonder how we had missed seeing it before..  Truth be told, we didn’t miss it, our stubborn resistance to it was just too focused on doing either something else, or wanting it to be another way.

Our minds are a cornucopia of wow, super fabulous, mundane and useless thoughts. Some are very creative and helpful and others not.  I like to think of myself as a teacher, I’m bright, I’m helpful I’m  a student of life, who applies and works diligently at working to bring peace and happiness to others …etc.etc…etc..  I’m  a bright light….duh…NOT

light bulb oil lamps

LOL.. when will I learn.. when will I actually practice what I “preach”    When will I tame my stubborn nature, my lazy nature, will it every happen.  Will I always be like the shoe maker who makes and fashions the most beautiful of shoes, and wears run down uncared shoes  him/herself.

In PL we say ” We are all born into this world with a one of a kind personality and Makoto (individuality and unique character) given to us by God.”  In order to do this, it is important that we do so daily,  focusing on expressing our true selves with Makoto (sincerity)

PL precept # 7 – Everything exists in Relativity

PL Principles # 6 I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.

light bulb parachutes

Light bulb moment’s happen for a reason, when we realize the lesson they are teaching .. when we grasp (once again) that we are still allowing our “conceit/determination/stubborn nature”  to alter , hasten or remove what IS… try to reflect on the moment, the lesson….. and work to improve… ask yourself why????  why do you do something that you know… because deep down we do know…… that until we do… history will keep repeating itself.
