Freitag, Friday morning greetings!

4.10 cute fox Status_001A smile can brighten someone’s day, it can change a mood, it can say what words can’t say, especially when it come from the heart.  In life , there are days when it isn’t always easy to find someone who is smiling.  Oh yes, there is the smile of recognition when you first greet, but it soon turns to talk that removes the smile that had started when you first greeted. Often the smile is automatic, not one that is really felt from the heart up on through the to the eyes. The eyes broadcast a lot if you care to look.

Yesterday I was visiting with a friend who is a DJ.  She works in a virtual world, the world of Second Life, her shows can be an hour sometimes two.  In a virtual world, you are looking and and interacting with an avatar.  Each avatar is worked by an actual person sitting at a keyboard, just like you are.  In my friend Sugaree’s room/studio, she is not just enjoying the sound of the music, she is greeting newcomers, and playing tunes, much like a radio DJ used to in the “good ole days”.  She is working, for an hour or two, however long she is contracted for, she entertains the audience who has come to enjoy her “craft”.  Music being played to entertain and please.  Most of the audience is dancing and listening to her venue.  The feedback she gets is that we speak, either in voice or text.  So smiles are not somethings she can see, we have to let her know that we are enjoying what she is doing.

In the real world, we pass people every day, that we don’t speak to, we stand beside people in close spaces (elevators) and we don’t speak, we could smile.. seldom do we do that either.  So.. really we could be in a virtual world, we ignore those around us in general unless we have reason to speak to them, or they are known to us.  In the virtual world, we actually speak to one another so that we can interact and find out where (what country) the person is from, and to determine common interests, if any.  Interesting isn’t it.  Liken it to the “olde days) when we were all encouraged in school to find and write to friends overseas, in other countries or in a different part of the country you lived in.  It was fun and educational to find a pen pal.  I still maintain contact with people I’ve met only via the post, true now, if we can we do e-mails.  Still.. we shared smiles and giggles with letters long before the internet.  Now …. we go virtual.

A smile is golden. Satus knows that the little critter makes people smile.  He was busy but he brought the little fellow out to work his magic, Smile I did, it was automatic, but it felt real good, I sat with a silly grin on my face and watched while the little fellow went through different programmed animations.  That was considerate of Satus. a young man I barely know except through business, he owns a company in SL.  Sugaree who I  have never met in person, shared her time and her music to bring a smile into the lives of others.. Knowing her makes me smile.  She is a special person, I hope our friendship grows, we share conversation, and laughs when we get together and she is not working.  Friendships are important,and smiling is also just as important.  Where-ever you are, what ever you are doing, use the smile muscle often, It is good for your health!

Dreams -astral journeys

Q 1.11.14_004

Have you ever felt the draw to return to  your dream. You wake up and feel that where you’ve been, and what you’ve seen was so so very much a part of who you are.  Have you heard of  “astral projection”?  At one time, there was a lot of talk, discussion and study on the ability of the spiritual form to travel across space and explore other dimensions, and even visit family and friends.

I don’t hear a lot about that these days, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.  Maybe it is because I feel that my night time travels are an extension of my days or “awake” time.  I think it helped that my Mother always shared her dream experiences with me, so it wasn’t out of the ordinary.  Just matter of fact.  Like the TAO/God being a constant factor, it wasn’t a relationship I needed to find, it was part of my daily life, life breathing. Respect for nature and all mankind was natural because it was an extension of who I was.  Life is my studio, and I am the artist.

Dreams are part of my inventory, and astral journeys are part of my research.  Life is good, life is full, and most of all, life is love.

When you live with love in your heart, you enjoy the full spectrum of life.  Jai Guru Dev (TM)  Oyashikiri (PL)  Amen =^_^=

Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm

PL lesson for yesterday was – Act with Enthusiasm – it was something I just couldn’t get enthusiastic about, until I read further, “If you put your whole heart into whatever you do, you will be able to appreciate any task at hand.”
Hmmm – yup I could do that, my objective for the day was to do as little as possible, In the afternoon I actually took a lie down, not to sleep, but to do nothing..
I did doze, but with no telly, no phone,no PC, no radio, I soon drifted into what my mother used to call “daydreaming”
It was nice.
It was rewarding, it was calming and peaceful.
My body rested, and best of all my mind had a holiday away from news,weather and sports. If you get my drift.
My lesson yesterday. enthusiasm = being in the moment and doing it whole-heartedly =^_^=

LOL – I looked at today’s lesson, ‘Just be Yourself”  that’s me…. easy peasy.  What are your plans for today?  Are you making time for yourself during this busy time of the year?           LIFE IS ART.
