PL Precept 15

PL Precept #15  All is a mirror

When we experience a negative encounter, it can set us back, set us to thinking, how on earth???  why????? and whatever other question comes up in our minds, try to understand how we walked back into the negative trap.

First accept responsibility, had you not said or done something, the incident might have been avoided.

No, you doing avoid, the issue, you avoid the negativity of it.  Everyone is different and unique, not everyone sees the world through your eyes.

The choice becomes yours, it is your responsibility to remove the negativity from your immediate “moment”.

Some lessons are harder to  learn than others.  We have to recognize what will put the trigger in striking distance, and shift, or walk away.  Life is too short.

Sometimes we like what we see in a mirror and other times, it is best not to look if we are not ready for what we will see.

change – in spades

Bali Nov. 2015

Yesterday, driving home from a meeting at the funeral home, I was feeling good, a lot had been accomplished, when bump…. a car side swiped me.  Yes in my brand new car. I honked and indicated that the car pull overt, which it did, we drove to a safe place and pulled off away from traffic.

I got out to look at my car, and found that there was no scratch on the metal but there was one on the black trim over wheel.  I was not amused.  Turning I saw the elderly man getting out of the other car.  Dressed as gentlemen do … there was a time when a man would not be caught at any time away from home, without a dress shirt and pants .. the driver of the errant vehicle was slow, his hands a bit shaky.  He had come prepared, he had his wallet out, should he need to give me identification.  What I saw and felt was a man who dreaded what was possibly going to  happen.

He waited for my “reaction”

bali nov 2015

I felt like the empty beach, with the mist that hangs over the water, in the picture you see above this text,  I couldn’t erase the “damage”, turn back the clock, he was already upset, my words were quiet, and I explained that this was a new car, and that my husband had just passed away, I was not happy about the scratch on my new car.  I couldn’t believe I was being so “quiet”..

He did his best to assure me that a bit of shoe polish would hide the scratch.  He sighed philosophically and said, “a new car doesn’t stay new  forever”.  He offered to pay to have it fixed, however, except for asking for his name and phone number, I let it go.  My mind wanted to walk into the mist.

After apologizing again, he explained that he had lost his only set of keys and had been frantically searching for them, and had just found them, his anxiety, and stress, caused him to swerve into my lane.  I said goodbye and left.

It is a new car, and maybe later I will react differently, but somehow.. I don’t think so, life is very fragile, material things, can’t replace feelings. The news around the world these days is unsettling we are all human beings, we all bleed if we are cut, and we all hurt when someone is thoughtless or cruel.

Day 31 in the PL Calendar – Your World will change when you look at things in a positive light.

Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself.  What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.

May your day be filled with sunshine, and your nights calm and serene.

Be Calm, Be Kind without compromising

Hesitating to share our true feelings hurts not only ourselves but others.  While respecting the other person’s feelings say what you need to say.

Life is what we make of it.  Life is full of challenges and opportunities.  Seize the day, make every second count.

Thank you to each and every one of you who has taken the time to write and ask me how my husband is doing.  There is nothing more that can be done to “stall” or “stop” the cancer.. it is doing what it has set its mind to do.

My husband we hope will come home this week for palliative care with a team of health care workers who come to the home, including a palliative care physician. Should it get to be too much to handle in the home environment, we will move on to the next step .

Blessings to each and every one of you.  Your caring, your support, is so appreciated. We hold you near and dear, each ray of energy you send our way is caught up and embraced with love.  We return the love to you a hundred fold. OYASHIKIRI

Friday greetings..

Miss Piggy tea pot VV

Miss Piggy waves hello.. a cheerful pot of tea, she is dropping in to wish you well,   We have a bright sunny day here, milder temperatures too.  I think I heard thunder rolling across the winter night sky in the early morning hours.  Warmer air, passing over and pushing down on the colder air below.

Works for me.  What ever you are doing, where ever you are going.. May the rays of positive energy bless your day today !!

Oyashikiri

You are loved, today and everyday!

 

and no, Miss Piggy did not follow me home.

Good Tuesday morning to one and all.  I have used this picture before, I don’t recall where I got it, but it is one I’ve obviously kept.  It still has an appeal.

I believe in balance.  There is no wrong without there being a right.  Everything seems so subjective, it is not always easy to find objectivity. We try.  At times it is like walking a tight rope with no safety net.  Even when we see and intellectually know the safety net is there, We doubt.

Today, no matter what, I want a happy day.  So… I found Pippa’s post on Instagram… come on… doesn’t she make you smile.  She gets my smile every time.

Thursday Doors 3.2.17

Rustic charm in a big château built along the Ottawa River on the Quebec side. I meant to go back and take a picture of the main door under the covered driveway that protects passengers as they arrive and drop off their luggage etc.  but forgot, it had been cloudy with rain, and there were times it was just too dreary.  Not to mention busy with people arriving and leaving.

It was a seasonal late February day, the huge majestic stone fireplace was beckoning visitors to sit around the lounging area, and relax.  I enjoy the crackling of a roaring fire, the area was lit in such  way that the dancing flames were merrily putting on a mesmerizing show for all of us who  had succumbed to its many charms.  Huge, the fireplace had huge openings in different direction, so that no matter where you were seated, you could enjoy basking in its glow.

With that pleasant memory firmly planted in my noggin, I’ll head out into the colder brisk air of March 2nd. and run errands.

Thank you to all my wonderful friends, near and far…. for your kind words and support, you are rays of sunlight in my world. Your caring warms my heart, I appreciate each and every one of you.

lost? or found?

DSC00090

a glove got lost

that glove was found

and left to  wait

should it be returned to its mate

some other day

meanwhile there it sits

out of harms way

a solitary reminder

that in some cases

it’s not that we don’t care

that we are no longer there

but life got in the way

too busy with other things

we missed realizing

that a part of us

fell away

& got left behind

this happens

when we are not

in tune with our mind

and

caught by surprise

when we find

that

one of two

is gone

leaving only

one

incomplete

For to be a perfect ONE ( pair)

it takes

2 to be 1

Yesterday was a day of sun and cloud, being a work day, this boat launch area was quiet, in the summer months when we dive by, it would be difficult to even find a place to park.  We stopped here to let the dogs have some outdoor fun.

This was the colour of the day, yes sunshine is nice, but I love the rather subdued and subtle shades  of an over cast day, if every day was sunny, we wouldn’t get to see the full palette of Mother’s Nature’s diverse and endless inventory of wonders.

Here is another Found? or Lost? for you….

While visiting a Tim Hortons (on the American side of the border, I came across the above dime and penny, laid out just as you see them  … I didn’t touch them.. I looked and found it interesting that someone would just leave them on the vanity, especially sitting there so neatly.  Were they in hand, and just laid down while hands were being washed…  Maybe a child had them, and left them when they were being tended to by a parent.. I didn’t know… but I wasn’t going to disturb them, so, I took a picture.

Life is interesting, fun and intriguing, how we accept our daily challenges and adventures is up to us..  Accepting, enjoying and letting go of moments.. is a life long challenge, sometimes it is easy sometimes it is not…. knowing that whatever it is, it is OUR life. Yours and mine… I’m just so happy knowing that you are part of my world,  In loving, sharing, caring, the exchange of ideas, thoughts,sights and sounds,.. WOW… what gifts.

Namaste      –       Oyashikiri
