oh hello, almost missed you

 I felt your stillness

it drew me back to you

sometimes in life,

this is something we need to do too

yet for reasons, beyond comprehension

we keep racing ahead

then wonder how in the world

we find ourselves in over our heads

thank you.. for reminding me

to stop and simply BE

Welcome to PL where your environment and the things that happen in front of you are all materials for your self expression and learning =^_^=

Happy start to another day!  It is Thursday, the week has flown by.  Already we are celebrating the 11th of the month.  Ancestors Day.

PL calendar day 11

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you.  Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us.  Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending”.  Mary Robinson.

Nothing can take the place of good friends, they make you smile, save your bxtt when you think there is no end in sight and give comfort just in being who they are.  I feel humbled to have such amazing friends.

When we pray for our ancestors and the people in our lives who contribute in our daily living, genuinely infuse each moment, with gratitude, giving thanks with all the makoto you can muster.

Ancestors Day

Perfect Liberty Calendar … day 11

Appreciate the Makoto (sincerity) of the people who came before you

Everything we have today was built upon the hard work of our ancestors and the people who came before us.  Always remember to be thankful and humble and continue to build on their past successes.


The bright colourful fabric you see was purchased and collected by a friend of my sister’s while on a shopping outing.  I never met this friend, only heard of her through my sister. I was however, really taken by her selection of fabric, the choices she made, and the colours she was drawn to.  This friend passed away last week, leaving a gigantic hole in the lives of her family and friends. It was sudden, no warnings, simply a chill, and she was gone.

We never know in life when a change will be made in our circle of friends and loved ones.  It happens, life is what it is.

Perfect Liberty Principle #2 –  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

flashback 2006

back yard a2006The last few days, maybe even weeks, I have found myself thinking of a different time and what was.  How a young garden, took shape, and grew till it no longer resembled what was.

Life mirrors nature, the link between the two has been established since way before I was born.  I am only now pulling the fragments of the past into what I have been living and what is to come.  I can feel the stirring of new beginnings, I know that I am already well into discovery mode.

Today, day 15 of the PL Calendar – Live with firm determination, thinking that “this will turn out for the best”

Everything in this world progresses an develops.  Always be positive, knowing that everything will turn out for the best.

Yesterday I drove to Montreal, the day was bright, balmy and welcoming.  Each mile was a new beginning.  Even though I have travelled this route many times, it was like a first visit.  The landscape along the way, simply would not be still.  The shades of late autumn strutted their charms against the blankets of pristine snow.  I felt their happy waves, and delighted in the variety of picture postcards they flashed my eager eyes as I drove by. Mother Nature, stayed with me all the way, the best tour guide ever.

2006aLife is a blessing, I am filled with appreciation and gratitude.  Thank you all for sharing my world,  Life is love, and love is YOU and the world we are in.

Today was a world of blue skies, ice, and crystal coated trees, rocks and fauna – the magic and artistry of it all, was breath-taking. enchantment in every direction The greatest moments in life, are God-given.

 

When we hide inside on days when the world beckons, We miss moments that can never be replayed, and sights that are for NOW, tomorrow it will  be another presentation.

Live every moment of the day, you will blessed with a life of amazement, and wonder.

PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, we have all heard of it, many of us deal with it in our lives in some way, friends, family, neighbours, work mates.  Usually someone somewhere, in your sphere, knows of, or has someone who has had to cope through a crises.  We know the weather patterns are changing too.

So many voices, so many schools of thought, everyone has a different reality. Why are some worlds lived in monochrome, and others vary in degree of colour. Life simply IS.

Same planet, different longitude and latitude perhaps, sometimes it is the same place in time and space, yet the people  involved are scrambling for harmony and balance in a world that can be chaotic at times, there is order in the Universe, but we, the human species, is often out of step.

This time of year can be very hard for those who are coping with a bout of December dis”ease”.

PL Calendar day 23   Appreciate our differences

Appreciate the colourful personalities of the people around you and enjoy their uniqueness to the fullest.

PL Principle  #2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for short comings in my own thinking and actions.
