Finding a balance between past and the present. – Find a good balance between your present and past experiences.

Appreciate the strengths as well as the shortcoming in others.

and today’s thought.. PL. day 23rd.  Once you’ve set out to do something, it is your job.  If you accept a task, made the choice, took the option, whatever, own it.

In PL we believe that when things happen to us, always there is a meaning, or a reason, our actions, behaviours brought us to the/that moment.

buddha waits 2We are not cast in stone, we are not without feelings, nor are we unaffected by the world around us.  Change is the only constant in life, each day, each day, brings a new NOW.

your golden glow

will beckon

and of course, euphorbia polychroma

the dense tuft of surprisingly green leaves

and lovely bright yellow bracts

reaching for the skies 

the magnolia tree is preparing to shine

in a day or two

these delicate  fuchsia buds will open

the deep defined leaves of the ivy 

have started their climb

soon the buddha will be covered

not smothered,

but dressed in a living cloak or vest

next to the corkscrew hazel

this Amur maple has

started to protest the long winter

and is showing her strong desire

to break free and thrive again

all around

new growth abounds

the ground has come alive

and so my dears, have I

for like the seasons

each day is a new beginning

as the bees stir and begin their quests

the delicious dandelions

awaits their visit

Yay another day has begun

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Buen dia, Good morning, Bom dia

Tome todo con sentimiento de gratitud

Accept Everything With Appreciation

buddha

Did you know that a honey bee will visit over 2 thousand flowers in a day if it needs to!  That is perseverance to get a job done.

Could this be where we got the saying, “busy bees”

honey bee

Sea una persona capaz de agradecer todas las cosas que acontecen ante sus ojos.

Aquellos que agradecen mucho son felices.

Today is the 21st and in PL our evening service is about appreciation, and giving thanks.

Today’s lesson

Become a person who can be thankful for anything that happens to them.

A person who is always thankful is a happy person.

Namaste      Oyashikiri

bee and daisy

closure

landscape 2Into the world you came

a fresh tender seedling

protected by the elements

you grew into a young man

strong,determined and resourceful

you married, had a family

and in turn, you sheltered

and gave your children the tools

they would require to grow

and succeed in/on their journey thru life

then one day, with your 100th year approaching

your work on earth was done

you were called away

your journey here was over

now…. your children

are left to mourn and say goodbye

9ac112dc760449a9546f90a0339878d8

saying goodbye is not the same for everyone

nor does each child really have the same memories of what was

for each child is unique, born at different times

their lessons, their knowledge base vary

often … the distance in their thinking

and the process to the solutions are and can be miles apart

cbe5afe3807f14c0ed8555e9e8ec4b39

The reality is that the Divine energy that connects us all

appears in different forms to each and every one of us

our past is ever-present in our moment

and our moments are always NOW

There is no real beginning or end

We either are, or we are not.

when love is pure,

when love is true

it is endless

closure, is a figment

of the mind.

Tiger's nest monastery, Paro,Bhutan (by druzi)A monastery in Paro Bhutan called the Tiger’s Nest.

My day started with what I was finding to be a very vexing problem.  I was doing a project in Photoshop, (software program) and for some reason, something that I knew I could do, wasn’t happening.  No matter what I did or how I tried to make it work, it wasn’t working.  Stubborn to a fault, I was determined to get this project done, and off my “To Do list”

To reach the Tiger’s Nest one must travel a very winding and steep path up the mountain.  It is easily done when one takes the time to know the route, and to listen to the more experienced traveler.  When one is stubborn, we don’t always reach out, we instead waste time by repeating the process that we aren’t doing right in the first place.

A call to a wonderful talented friend in the UK. set me back on the path, this time with better coordinates. I had interpreted the numbers wrong at the very start, I assumed,…. based on that assumption, everything else I did was not working. My friend is a born leader/teacher, she didn’t do it for me, she redirected my thinking so that I was working with the right numbers, in so doing the calculations worked.

There are times when we need to reach out… we need to allow the input of another “voice”  Not to tell us what to do, but to guide us in making the right choices.

BRAVE THE CLIMB TO THE TIGER’S NEST Taktsang Palphug, commonly known as Tiger’s Nest, is a seventeenth-century structure clinging to a mountainside a dizzying 10,200 feet above Paro Valley. Why the name Tiger’s Nest? Because it’s said that in the eighth century, Guru Rinpoche flew to this exact spot on the back of a tiger

It was/is said

That in the sky, the heavens above, there is no east/west, north/south, it is the human need for words and direction, that these distinctions were made.  Then over time, the mind believed it to be true…  Because it was said, does not make it so.

Buddha  “You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by Your anger.

PL Principle # 5  I will not get angry at anyone or anything.

In PL (Perfect Liberty), PL Precept #4 Being Annoyed Limits your Expression,

PL Precept #5 is One’s Self Is Lost by Being Emotional.

The picture above is of a boulder  with indentations, found on the grounds of  Shikoku temple. Japan.  It is said that if one hits it with another rock in different places, it will give a sound of various musical notes.

“Have compassion for all beings, rich and poor alike, each has their suffering.  Some suffer too much, others too little.”

Gautama Buddha

cca8fa1c1b368ae755278e69b00def1b

Always

live with hope

in your heart

Your soul will be enlightened

when you learn 

not to complain

without suffering

without fear 

without crying.

do not be attached

but do not walk away

life is for living

each joy

each emotion

is a sign 

that you are alive

trust in the moment

a new memory

is being born.
