Saboree lo positivo de cada persona (Appreciation)

El ser humano posee tanto virtudes como defectos.  Relacionese con los puntos positivos de otras personas.

Aprecie o ponto positivo das perssoas

Relacione-se com o pronto positivo de cada um.

Appreciate each person’s good points

There is  a good and a less positive part to all of us.  As humans we do our best,

but we do, often have to try a few times before we get it right.  Let’s take the time

to strive towards finding the positive in others, and situations we encounter in

and during our daily lives.  In so doing, it will not only enrich our lives but perhaps

bring sunshine and wonder into someone else’s life.

We don’t always know how our actions impact on others.

Share a smile today!  Reach out and share the happiness in your heart..

Love is powerful, it touches us in ways that mortal words cannot describe..

Believe you are loved..each and every one of us is blessed

we need only accept, that love is what makes us ONE.

Always and Forever.

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

0d41485561a37c6865761f503975eb84With the technology in our lives today the need to have a telephone available in public places has all but disappeared. Interesting to note though, that in some remote areas, or smaller villages cell phones and internet access is not always easily obtained.   Yet, because of the lack of use .. the public phones are fast becoming non-existent. Heaven forbid you get stuck along a country road between communication towers, or in a deep valley with a lot of mountain between you and the air waves needed to work your cell.

40870a6d01987ff9525864f6e721ac64With central air, and many controlled environments in public areas,, buildings, and newer housing complexes.  We don’t use windows like we used to.  Where at one time I knew many many co-workers and acquaintances who went to cottages and out into the rural areas for most of the summer… I don’t hear of that as much now. The back road summer havens are slowly finding less and less activety … the lakes and rivers are not humming with constant activity.

Yes, creative minds are still at work,  all around we see the creative mind at work.  We live in a society that says, individual rights and freedom of expression  is important.  AND it is.  However, there are times, when we should be looking at how our needs/wants affect others.  AND we should care.It isn’t always about what we  want, I appreciate and enjoy looking at the above bed, do I want to sleep in or on it, no.  Everyone around us, is a unique human being, yet they are all part of who we are… they share the same air, they think and feel emotions, hurts, love, sadness, just like we do.

cliffs of Moher,County ClareSome will want to walk along a path that will mystify and rattle your nerves,  Yet hearing about their journey and seeing the world through their eyes, is WoW… exciting.  You can share the experience, just not in the same way..

Yoho National Park,CanadaThis is an experience I would like to one day explore.  For years I would drive by a frozen waterfall, and wonder what it would be like to climb the frozen sculpture I passed it 5 days a week, going to and coming home from work.  I’ve not done it yet, but it remains a goal.  I may never get to actually climb such a might fall as this one, but never-the-less I keep the desire alive by sharing the passion and exhilaration of those who can and have….  Modern technology is such that today, I can easily find and enjoy a glimpse into what someday might happen.

Never stop believing in your dreams.  Have faith.

Inner Sensitivity

167d18e89f4cfe94d6d602d49b31014e

Oh to be lazy, to sit in the hammock and simply while away the day. =^_^=

Today’s lesson is about being able to perceive our surroundings with more sensitivity.

We are asked to continue to learn and to add to our knowledge and experiences.

Learning can be painful, it can produce growing pains….  actually, most lessons that contribute to our sensitivity to SELF, are ones that force us to face some of the truths, that lie dormant in our Being

intellectually we work things out so that we contrive a form of acceptance.  A way to live with the feelings of vulnerability, our inner insecurities, if we are truly honest with ourselves, we all have to deal with these feelings, thoughts, and inner ramblings.  Will lying in the hammock, closing our eyes, and letting the sounds of the meadow change things?

Sometimes, my surroundings are important, I am happy being where I am…. the question that i ask, is there a need …to always interact with our surroundings, or…. can we simply BE.

bb2101f6a7516384a10c2e51e4fcf7c7

To be more aware, to be more in tune with our surroundings, we need to focus and be present, in all we say and do.

no more… …no less

compromise

d32d9e24148310bce6ea28f49d63113aShould I …. or shouldn’t I

we may not say it out loud

but our hesitation, our actions

or non actions

speak volumes

9da3f3320415cdad3b34bb83c0ab7fee

do we some times, learn to late

that perhaps we should have given a bit more thought

to a situation or opportunity,

before, we stepped out to meet “fate”

mirkwood_nursery_by_ethe-d5tf6bg

sometimes it is our choice

of friends, and/or toys

we surround ourselves with

our time on earth is a gift

02f190ad6f58276eff7d8e55c815f5dc

and yes, it seems that we are constantly being challenged

by one choice or another

and, yes, our minds just never stop chattering

one solution always brings up another possibility

788f8b0121508195f905acd684b85b4f

compromise can make  life more complicated

know what YOU want for yourself

never compromise with your SELF

once something is said or done

we can not take it back

Ohayo gozaimasu, ichi-gatsu 30

japan 1

Good morning everyone…

For those of us waking to a world of white snow and high winds, thought we would take to the streets in another climate. The day seems bright enough, but I could see the wind blowing the wind flag and it wasn’t messing around. Although only 14 degrees Fahrenheit, with the wind chill factor it has to be cutting cold out there.  Dress warmly if you are going out, wear a warm scarf, makes all the difference =^_^=.  (-15 Celsius?)

I found this picture of a Japanese carving the other day.  At one time I was very interested in and had started a collection of “Netsuke”.  A Netuske is a small miniature carving, many of which date back to a different period in time. This Japanese monkey is from the Mejii Period (1868 – 1912), look at the detail, the monkey is looking through a magnifying glass, to view an insect on a persimmon.  The carving is 1.5 inches.

There had to be no compromise nor hesitation of the artists hands while he/she worked.  I can only imagine the concentration and focus that went into this wonderful work of art.  Our lives are works of art, how often are you called upon to compromise, or when dealing with another, you find yourself hesitating because you simply are not on the same page and paragraph of the person you are interacting with.

Japan, 2

When we find ourselves rethinking, or pausing in our actions, then it is time to take a break and think about what is meaningful to us.  What is important to us, if we compromise, or not speak up on what we really feel, matters will only become more complicated…………. Always be true to yourself!…………….

Bonjour , hallo..13th

I’m not going to add to this… for today, I will meditate and cogitate on  this one.  It is a big lesson and one that I have not  mastered yet.  It is another beautiful day, therefore, it is a perfect day to reflect on why I find this lesson so difficult to follow through on.  Intellectually I understand … hmmm is my mind being lazy again?

Perhaps this will be a tad bit more motivational…  the kitty picture has me wanting to go find a sunny spot to curl up on a cushion and go back to sleep, or grab a short nap.

Yes this is better I might not manage a stretch like that…. but I can sure do my own version of a good long stretch.. hmmm just thinking about it has me motivated to go look for my exercise mat.

Have a good day dear friend, drink lots of water, eat your crunchy veggies, and see you soon,  Smile it is contagious.

Now is always a new beginning.

This mouse hitched a ride with a frog during a monsoon flooding in India (National Geographic).  Opportunity knocks, you don’t waste time thinking about it, you “do it”.

d1353ab0e356801629734d3eaa45b42dThis mother bear takes her young cub up the hillside, I doubt she contemplated too much before beginning her trip.  She needed to reach her destination, so she simply took the path as it opened up for her.

Me,I contemplate, cogitate, explore, and dwell on things far too much.  I know that is one of my lessons in life, I still do it. Intellectually I know that, now is what counts, now is what matters.  I also know the choices I make I’m responsible for, and I have to take ownership for whatever choices I make.

Out today, the 24th of December, the day was gray, dull, overcast, with a light rain as our constant companion while outdoors.  Inside the shops, last-minute shoppers were busy scurrying around trying to beat the clock.  Stores were closing early so employees could get home to start their own holiday activities.

I was waiting for the phone call that would tell me my husband would be on the way to pick me up.  I had time on my hands, so I began to pick up the stuffed animals left on the floor by previous shoppers.  I picked each animal up and put him/her on display on the empty racks that were at the end of the aisles.  Many at least over half of the toys were barely played with, if at all.

Their soft cuteness made it a temptation to bring them all home. So many children do without at this time of year.

39387660feb3b0bb6702509a40f9ac1bOk there are no easy answers to the philosophical questions that come up at this time of year.  But I know that I want to make a difference.  Can I, will I, only time will tell..  I do know that NOW, is the time for me to make a new start, to really apply myself with makoto (sincerity) at being more aware of how choices I make impact others and society.

3832cb218ade5ff537c092106a353453

Life is a gift, and how much we appreciate this gift, comes back to the choices we make.  Life presents the opportunities it is up to us to make the best of the challenges that come our way.
