I sit high when driving, we have a truck. I as struck by the vegetation and rooftops as I travelled how 43, going east.
It was a beautiful day as you can see. The miles slipped silently by as I rode along taking in the views. It was a “me” day. A day to allow my thoughts to come and go, my only objective to watch the road, and take in the beauty around me.
Farmland as far as the eye could see. Small villages, and towns, expanse of fields waiting for harvest. Rural Ontario. (250km) Lots of time to entertain my thoughts.
PL Precept # 15 All is a Mirror – I sought tranquility and peaceful surrounding. The Universe granted my wish. I enjoyed conversation and friendship along the way, then back in the truck as I continued on my way………….. the steady hum of the tires and visual delights as Nature provided the beginning colours of her fall palette.
Just before the final stretch, I stopped for fresh produce and discovered a new fruit. Ground cherries. physalis longifolia
Enjoy each new day, give thanks for the opportunities that come your way. Life is good.
A day spent with and in Nature, alone, in meditation and quiet
is a special day indeed!
In exercise of meditation /concentration, trying to force results will only lead to an undesired outcome. Changes no matter what they are, ( although at the time we don’t think it is what we want), in time we learn, they are usually the best for us, and the catalyst to an improved and better state of BEING.
Let us pray/meditate today for all who need to feel an extra boost of positive energy coming their way. Take time today to touch base with a friend, smile at a stranger, wish people a good day. May YOUR day be blessed with the knowledge that you are loved.. always and forever… Oyashikiri
There is a great sense of joy when we are able to express our true selves. Our environment and the things that happen all around us, are all materials for self expression. In PL we are taught that with God’s blessing, we will be able to freely express ourselves using these materials. When I found this little church tucked away between a wooded area and the sea, the artist’s build brought a genuine smile and joy to me. If you are virtual traveler this is the link to ! The Sanctuary ” Our Lady Lourdes of Lourdes”, the url is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Excellens/189/209/67
Always focus on your true feelings and express yourself honestly. It was in following where my footsteps led that I found this little sanctuary
By leading a cheerful, joyful and beautiful life, you will learn to work for the happiness of orders as well as yourself. PL Precept #21 LIFE IS ART
