Good morning all, Bom dia

Day 19 of the PL Calendar    If you are going to do it, put your whole heart into it

Your degree of seriousness will affect the outcome,  Your daily accumulation of effort toward your goal shows just how serious you are.


My latest journal pages reflect the various interest I have in the world of Yin.  I search the rows of books, catalogs, comics, artworks for ideas.  I never know how a  page or series of pages will end up. I let my creative muse direct my energies .. colours and subject matter change with each new day, even from morning till evening hours, my inspirations can and often change.

But whatever I am doing, I do my best to put my whole heart into it.  Living the PL way, one lives with Makoto (one’s utmost sincerity)

Oyashikiri

Blessings dear friends, may your day hold many wonders..

The tree

ec90095ea978e96e9a3ed4124392357eThe tree is one of the most essential of traditional symbols.  the oak was sacred to the Celts; the ash to the Scandinavians, the lime tree Germany, the fig tree India, etc.  Trees express an selective correspondence, symbolism of the tree denotes the life of the cosmos, its consistence, growth, proliferation, generative and regenerative process.  It stands for inexhaustible life.  The tree with its roots in the ground and its branches reaching towards the sky, symbolizes and upward trend, which it relates to other symbolism as well.

The above picture for me reminded me so much of a passage written by Kahlil Gibran, that i went in search of it to share it with you today.

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.” 
― Kahlil GibranThe Prophet

Read and take in his words today…. let it fill your meditation, find how it applies to your life/circumstances today.  Respect and courtesy are reflections of how much we value others. ” Pay particular attention to the continuing development of your character, you have the Potential Energy for an enlightened insight that could change your life.”   Tao.
