When we journey beyond our day-to-day, we come across forgotten places, faded dreams of a yester-year. There are such places, that I can acknowledge and let pass. Two ships in the night. Other places shout out to me, calling for my attention. So we stop and I survey the land, the energy and “vibe” of the place. What is it that makes one location stand out from another.
Same stop, different camera angle. Maybe seconds have passed, maybe it was more like a few minutes. But in the fraction of time my gaze and attention was diverted. The light, the view was different. So it is in life. When first a challenge faces us, if we listen and take in what it is we are dealing with, our response and reaction will vary. If you are two people, arriving at the same time, seeing the same thing, neither of you, will see it the same way, sometimes close, and other times..totally different.
That is why communication, conversation is so important, if there is dialogue between two people, even between two energies, there is compatibility or there isn’t. To be a good communicator, listening has to be one of your most used tools.
The place may seem empty, but…………. the reality is ………………………..it is alive with memories.
PL Precept # 1 Life is Art
Namaste – Oyashikiri
Finding our way in life is always an adventure. Sometimes it is a mystery and we find ourselves asking the mirror “why? how? what happened?” Some paths we traveled on have been smooth and well-worn, others if there ever was a road, it had long been reclaimed by nature, and you had to tread carefully and watch for openings in the growth around you to make your way through to find a clearing. You needed to focus and be present.
Today with virtual worlds, gaming and concept art forms, we are taken into wonderful imaginary worlds without leaving the comfort of home. Still, always, one should be present and aware of all that is happening around us.
If an explorer starts out with preconceived notions and ideas about what lies ahead he/she will not be open to the wonders that are there to be discovered all along the way. If you find yourself on a road you’ve not been on before, take it all in, This is where you are, so enjoy it, discover what there is to learn from the moment and then move on. Every day is a blank canvas
Where will you go, and what will you discover today? God bless and keep you safe what-ever your do,
