Thursday Doors -Charm

charming door

Nothing says WELCOME more than a door with charm and character.  We pass this darling house every time we visit a town along the St. Lawrence seaway.  This time I couldn’t go by it another time and not capture it to share with you.  This is not a castle door, or a door to a big multi million dollar mansion, this is a door that says, “this is home”

Even has the wonderful wide porch that invites a nice long visit, watching the world go by.  We didn’t meet him, but there is a dog with the face of an angel who looked curiously out of the side window at us as we chatted with the owner.  There is a lot to see when you visit the small towns and villages along the seaway.

Chop Suey Tuesday 12th.

Although I would like to say that life is rolling along, at its usual pace, it hasn’t.  Since my decision to follow through and go to Japan for Kyososai * it has been a merry ride of excitement and new discoveries.  Who knew, that one seemingly every day decision to return to Japan, could spur such initiative, and possibilities!  Not I.  But in PL, it isn’t unusual, and I should be used to it by now, but, I’m not, I ever cease to be amazed at how far-reaching goodwill, friendships, and kindness can reach.  What is coming home to me is that miles do not separate kindred spirits, true connections are universal and heartfelt.

PL Precepts # 11   Always be with God

The teachings of Perfect Liberty unite us where-ever we are.

PL Precept # 10 Love yourself and Others

In PL, we learn to appreciate and be thankful for all that happens in our lives.  There are no failures, there are opportunities to grow and learn.  If one path is not open to us, it is because, we have to redirect our energy and find another way to reach our objective.  In TAO, we say, …… the only constant in life is change …….

When a company,church, group or individual, refuses to look at and accept that changes are sometimes necessary to progress and unite, there is disharmony,  Life can become stagnant.  When we open our hearts and embrace and appreciate the world arround us, we recognize that the unique differences  or really sometimes our own perceptions.

PL Principle # 3   I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

  • Kyososai: is a special celebration . It is celebrated annually on August 1 with a ceremony at all churches in the world.  Kyososai (PL Founders’ Day) in Japan, is HUGE, people come in the 1000s for the celebrations there, it is very famous for “the Art of Fireworks”
  • Musubi – Oneness, togetherness with Others.

PASS IT ON

the look of innocence ?

44f4c55d7e5ffdaf2e6c9c9ba827d84d

if you are a pet owner

you may chuckle at the reminder of your pet’s look of total innocence

on occasions when you know

that they were responsible for the surprise

you found on your return to the homestead

enhanced-buzz-18358-1383303680-1

the reality, they live their moments,

they don’t plan them,

they just get right into the moment and enjoy it

they are totally baffled by our reactions

to what they probably don’t even remember doing

IMG_20150517_095737472_HDR

a child will react to a moment, they will do so, without even thinking about it

either hide or pose, but whatever they do

they do with presence.  they haven’t learned the adult behavior

of avoiding a response, or colouring it.

when do we begin to change

and  become statistics

with resumes that define our existence

now instead of telling you I love you

I send you an icon

so today, I think

I’ll be an avatar, a dinky to be specific

what about you

Q June 30_003

PL Thanksgiving Feb.2016

IMG_1117

Look at the snow, it was piled so high, that I wanted to capture it, but couldn’t really get the same view I had from inside the truck.  I had stopped on the way to church to take a picture of the fire truck that was sitting in the parking lot.

IMG_1111

Big red shiny truck… some ladies love their diamonds, today, I went for the chrome, and the size of the truck.  At the time, when I first approached taking my pictures, I wasn’t aware of the fact, that sitting in the dark corner there was a fireman.  I had seen several disembark and go into the breakfast place off towards the back.  I was happily walking around snapping pictures of the chrome, and it wasn’t till I went up for this front shot, that I felt eyes watching me.

I was engrossed in the taking of pictures.. after all how often does a person get up close and personal to a fire truck.  By the time I had made my way around to this panel, the “men” who had gone towards the restaurant were back.. They were a tad amused, we had a chuckle, and of course they apologized for not having the truck at its shining best for her photo session.

IMG_1114

Look at the grill, isn’t it beautiful.  I’ve seen these beauties outside the fire stations in spring, summer and fall when they are being washed and polished. I was some chuffed to see one up close and personal.  It was a great way to start the day, what was ordinary for them, was a total  “fantastical” moment for me.

LOL a big mound of snow and a shiny red and white fire truck, helped make my day today…  How about you.. you having a good day.  In Pl, we try to make every moment count.  This morning, sharing smiles and some happy .. made for a great kick off to the day.

Life is Art

chinese lion dance

Start of a new year for those of us who follow the lunar calendar. Lots of celebrating, dancing, fireworks, colour and excitement. Do we carry the colour and enthusiasm into our new year?

I’d like to think that I do. Every day I try to bring colour of some kind into my days.  Whether it is creatively crafting, writing, problem solving, I enjoy the challenge of working something through from beginning to finish.  That said, what I want to do, and what actually happens,  hmmm let’s say, the stars don’t always align.

Do I get angry, annoyed, no…   Why?   Because getting angry, stewing and simmering about something that has happened, will not remedy the situation.  PL Precept #4 – Being Annoyed Limits your Expression.   PL Precept # 5, One’s  Self is lost by being Emotional.  Let’s be clear, that doesn’t mean I never snap, or get annoyed with something or someone, I do, but I also have learned to let it go.  Once I vent, spew off the negativity, express my reaction, puff, it is like a breath of fresh air washes over me, and it’s gone.  What, may take all of a few seconds, or a minute or two at most, and its gone.

PL Precept # 17    Grasp what is Most Essential.  Believe me, I am much happier, when I am at peace with myself.  Reread that last bit if you need to, I work at being at peace with myself.  It is only when I can be at peace with myself, that I can reach out and be useful and loving to someone else.  If we live our lives being angry, then we are not going to achieve love and peace for others, because it hasn’t begun within ourselves.

PL Precept #15   All is a Mirror.

whippet,hound face

Be content, be happy, share that love and happiness with others.

We are all blessed with the gift of life, love and the tools to maintain and express this love.

Life (Living) is an art form

May sunshine bless each and every day of the year

for each and every one of you.

Dear readers, you are all so appreciated in my life,

Thank YOU
