The Green Door

door,green by Jim Gove on Flickr

Does a green door mean anything to you?  Do you know how many green doors you have passed through in your day?  Probably not. We go through a lot of doors, some more colorful than others.  Some we close behind us and others are left open.  A friend recently closed a door on me, the friend decided they no longer wanted to be friends.  Actually if I think back, I’ve probably had a few doors closed on me -smiles – what is the saying, you can please some people some time but not all people, all the time.  Something like that.

What happens when a door closes.  Nothing really, of course I guess it depends on what side of the door you are on, what view you will have, but the reality is, the door is closed.  You didn’t close it, but it is closed non-the-less.  In my earlier years I guess I would have tried to reopen the door, I no longer feel the need to do that. I’ve come to respect that if someone decides to close a door, it is their decision, and I respect that.  It doesn’t change my feelings, or my caring, because when I give or love, I do so willingly and from my heart.  There are no regrets when love is pure and true.

In PL(Perfect Liberty) we learn practical guidelines for living our daily lives.  These principles assist us in practicing the PL 21 Precepts.   The 1st Precept is …..Life is Art….       The 1st Principle …. I will live paying careful attention,putting Makoto (sincerity) into all I say and do.

Living harmoniously with the Universe is really about being in the moment and being mindful in all we say and do.  Doors whether open or closed are a beautiful reminder of movement from then to now.  I  like green because it is the color of growth and new beginnings.

Principle #4I will live with the spirit of Misasage (Devotion) working for the happiness of others.

I wish you all a very good day, whatever it is your decide to do, keep at it, don’t give up until you have accomplished what you started.

Life is here for us to enjoy and to be lived.  All things come to fruition once the heart (content) and the object (form) are in accord with one another, you will be blessed with wonderful results.

Here today, gone tomorrow

Today they will tear down the house next door.  It has been here since we moved here, and actually since this area was developed. Slowly we have watched as the neighbour around has undergone changes.  This was on older neighbourhood, single family homes, mature trees. not small, not too big, decent city lots, lane ways, Stand alone garages in the backyards.  Lawns and gardens, pets, families a place where neighbours sat out on the front porch, or enjoyed evening walks to the parks or community center and exchanged greetings with friends they’d known for years.  First the children grow up and move away, and then the parents either move away to “different” homes to better meet their needs,  or pass away.  Then little by little the community start to change, the small single family homes, are being replaced by double and some times triple dwellings on lots that once held only 1 house.  Its call infill.  It is not that the new buildings are ugly, it is simply they don’t fit in.  They are like boxes, build with small floor plans and lots of stairs, there is barely any land for a yard, and in the front basically all that is seen is cement  parking spot(s)  and or maybe a car port so that this little living space can accommodate 2 small cars.

So far we have been lucky, most of these modern box buildings have been going on around but not to close to use.  Yesterday we survived a day of loud noise pollution while old insulation was pumped out of the attic.  Yes an attic.. The old house even had a real basement, a huge big  and mature trees.  Guess what, the trees were the first to go..   Happened in the back of us too.  Behind us when we moved here was a very unique home constructed from two old train cars, yes that’s right, train cars, the original owner had worked for the now defunct train line that traveled between Canada and the United States.  It had beautiful old oaks on the property, when the new owners came along, the first thing to go there was the old oak.  In the city their are laws about the removal of such old trees, but the builder found a way around it. So it was taken down, and all the wild life that lived there was left with out a home.

There is nothing I can do about these changes, progress is going to happen, and I might not always be happy with the changes, but I will learn to adapt. For today I will mourn the passing of an old friend, and hope that thee young Japanese Maple that was planted a few years ago, will be saved.  My neighbour who sold her family home, has asked that it be saved and given back to her if it will not be left to grow and flourish.  I saw that the tree has a big red line drawn around it in the snow.  I will pray that it will be  saved ….. all in life is precious.
