dangerous

photo-Hillwalker,DarrenSu 2019

Are you in danger, of falling in love.. how about.. laughing so hard it hurts, or … meeting some one new who thinks so much like you do, they know what you are thinking almost before you do.

Risk taking, do you take risks. Would you take risk going down an unfamiliar street just because you had never gone down that street before? Are you a person who will explore that hidden alley, go down that country road to an unknown location? Can you remember the last time you stopped to talk to a complete stranger, just to have a friendly chat?

Do you or have you missed someone who you used to spend a lot of time with … until distance, or interests took you in other directions. Driving a car is and can be dangerous until you learn and know how to do so… Even then you are not always in control of “how ” the journey will proceed.

Living is risk taking, living can be dangerous, I think we have all had a bit of that learning curve in recent times…. Have you discovered new beginnings, have you rediscovered new qualities in your friends, family, surroundings, that have given you pause … Can you now define, the “dangers” in your life (lifestyles).. A dear friend said over the week-end, many of us have forgotten that love is a commitment. Got me thinking, it is often thought of as a feeling. (which we try to categorize, define, squeeze into a box of a predetermined definition) … the reality, it is a commitment, very personal, and to each one of us, it holds unlimited possibilities. Always for everyone, there is danger.. Love will always, bring change.. change is impossible to avoid – There you go.. you are a risk taker..

Love you loads and loads and loads.

Put your whole heart into everything and express your individuality. When you put your whole heart into expressing yourself, your true beauty will shine through.

when two hearts collide

a picture story

I have a dear friend who also has a blog, and who as a writer helps other writers by giving them a picture and asking them to write a story around what they see. Going through pictures for one of my other blogs, I came across this picture.. It spoke to me of so many possibilities that I thought I would try it out on this blog.

Who are these men, what is the storyline here. The postures, the looks, what do they tell you. Mollie you inspired this.. what do you see? Can you feel the emotions, what is happening here, or could be happening.

I look forward to some input here. I think I know where I would go with this story line, but… I’m going to stand aside and let you dear reader, tell me.

Today’s calendar said ‘Good or Bad, It is your Mirror.”

the 25th day, says.. “Let’s find the joy in Everything” Are you looking for things to complain about? Let’s change our perspective and live a cheerful and joyful life.

Each personality is an individual, each with a heart, feelings and emotions that belong to them and them alone, … in life… we are all a continuation of Nature’s Energy field. What happens when two force fields collide?

Stay safe.. stay strong… be happy!

Sometimes we have to deviate from what was to what is.. Artistic expression in a virtual setting, with music to flavour the viewing.

Stay connected everyone, discover or rediscover that “loving feeling”

Enjoy the changes in your life. Things around you are constantly changing with the times. Take on the challenging and new experiences as materials for self expression.

Q

Wordless Wednesday -Achievement

VaughnAd_CDF

I am very proud of Steve and Paul,  their achievements with the dogs that they breed, raise and share their home with.  Our whippets come from their “home”.  They are so dedicated to their “family”. “Achievements” such as the ones that they strive for, are met only with hard work, focus and total commitment.  Main ingredient is LOVE.

When we love, truly love, unconditional love… it will reflect in all we do.’

marriage

 

Shinzen Japanese Garden, Yosemite_002

Marriage between two individuals, is a sacred bond.  It is a commitment of Oneness in a world of constant change. Like friendships that last, it is a growing of hearts, a learning in understanding, and a blessing of life, lived to its fullest potential.

Partners learn and grow together.  Without knowing it they help shape and form their loved one’s knowledge and wisdom of what “togetherness” is.  No two people are alike, and no two couples are the same.  What is constant in love that stays true, is unconditional faith, trust, caring, and acceptance.  Respect being a key ingredient.

Love is a four letter world, with endless definitions.

I have been overwhelmed with the thoughtful, caring, sharing you have all showered me with.  I know I am not alone, and never will be, you all fill my world with such support, kindness and affection.

For those who have asked, service will be on PL Ancestor’s day (the 11th) we will do the service at the church (10a.m.) for Ancestor’s day,  then Rev. Eugene will do a special prayer for Brian.  Brian took such solace in prayer,  when he was still able to read, he read the Precepts and Principles regularly.  Prayer brought comfort and consolation.

camp fire

Unconditional Love lives on forever

the earthly flame may flicker and die

but we, like the majesty,

of the Universe

will live on, in the mountains, lakes and streams

for all Eternity

When I went to Japan a couple of years back for training, I landed in a heat that was smothering.  I’ve been in the Florida sun, the heat of southern California, but never the relentless heat that was beating down in the area of Japan I was in for the training.  I can’t recall the exact reason, but the air conditioning was not working on campus, so not only did I have to adjust to living surrounded by a strange language and more people than I am used to in a given day, I had to adapt to sleeping in Japanese dorm style accommodations.

These were the wonderful ladies from Spain, my roomies.  Ana back left was the only one who spoke any English.  Even with the heat, the foreign languages, somehow we all got along, and had not only a good time, we created GREAT lasting memories.

Days like today, when I start to want to complain about the heat, I think back to when we learned how to work and pull together, enjoying the moments. the heat forgotten, just the combined energy of  “community”  singing and encouraging each one another.

We came from all over,  together we renewed our commitment to working towards World Peace.  Whether in Japan, or back home. the objective is still the same, in working to be a better person, every step will lead to living with love in our hearts, and World Peace that much more of a reality.
