A student once said to me, “you tell me that happiness begins with me, intellectually I agree, but the reality is I don’t know how to begin”. It is easy to talk about the Precepts and Principles of PL,( Perfect Liberty), they are all so “simple” when stated, but they are not as easily followed as one would imagine, When someone says relax, we just can’t flick a switch and our bodies will relax.
Like the shadows on the fence the “art” of the moment, is there and if we pause in our day, we will see it, return in another half hour, that moment and play of shadows will no longer be there,.
Think on the number of times, your friend, mate,spouse, child, asks you for something, and you have replied with “just a second,” “wait, I’m busy” or I can’t right now, maybe later. We all do it, it is so easy to simply excuse ourselves from the moment because we are busy, mentally in another space.
Sometimes, the moment passes, and there is no repercussion, it simply gets lost. Other times, it could have been a life changing moment. We will never know, we let it pass, we made a choice, and come what may, we had a part in that “moment” in time.
When we make time in our lives for prayer, we are making time for GOD/TAO/Nature/Divine within ourselves. To understand and learn more about ourselves, we have to spend time with our “selves” In PL (Perfect Liberty) we are always available to “listen” and to help YOU sort out the complicated challenges that come your way. It really happens to everyone, not just you, you are never alone, although at times, it might feel that you are.
PL Precept # 1 – Life is Art
Art doesn’t just happen, everyday we live is an expression of our creativity. Our TRUST and FAITH in GOD is what will see us through troubled times.
in 2013 the #6 lesson was – A change of Heart can turn the Tide – No matter what the situation you can’t change others. The only thing you have control over is how you accept things, and deal with them.
PL Precept # 19
Each moment is a turning point
