j’aime ca, I like it

bears, down time

Hanging out, chilling, doing whatever comes along… it took me awhile to achieve this.. I grew up when being idle meant you had nothing to do, therefore, a parent seemed to feel it was necessary to find you something to do.  And/or, during the academic years, one was supposed to be studying and applying what time we had to achievements, goals, etc.

bear, scratching his back

I am grown up now, and I can scratch my own back. (should I need to).  We leave tomorrow for a road trip, therefore, I will not be sharing time with you till my return.  I could I guess take the electronic gear I require to stay in touch, however, I’ll be busy collecting and shuffling my thoughts and ideas, so that when I come back, I’ll hit the ground running.  Besides I’ve learned in life, that friends who are true, will be there for you when you need them, Since I have learned to like myself, I now appreciate and value my friends even more.  You understand, how important it is to “let go” and live, love..  Love is being alive.

bear,brown

You’ve seen this guy before I like to keep him handy, cuz he reminds me that taking time to chill, is alright, and the more you allow time to nurture your inner Self, the stronger, and happier you become.  I like being happy.  Sharing with you makes me very happy, Have fun, enjoy the coming days, let your creative energy soar, I look forward to catching up when I return.

one day, it simply happened

I looked up and there you were

obviously you had been there before

but .. somehow.. I missed seeing you there

nature has a way of reclaiming

what man has tried to take away

there is no tomorrow or yesterday

only today

one day you wake and find the floral essence of the bloom

enjoy it while it comes alive

for all too soon, the flower fades

to shrivel and begin its journey

to another space and time

no, not into  the gloom

it has come, lived, and gone

no more  no less

brdge, Inca

This is an Inca rope bridge (Qeswachaka) above the Apurimac river in Peru. Rope bridges were simple suspension bridges over canyons and gorges (Pongos) that provided access for the Inca Empire.  traffic was limited to pedestrians and livestock and were an integral part of the Inca road system …

bridge, northern Pakistan

This bridge is known as the most dangerous bridge in the world.  The Hussaini Hanging bridge is only one of many precarious rope bridges in Northern Pakistan. These rickety cable and plank bridges are long and poorly maintained.  Planks go missing, and strong winds shake the bridge as you cross it.

ladder, 5stories high,Putucusi,Peru

OK 1 more.  This is how one scales Putucusi, (Peru) it is a hike that brings you up adjacent to Machu Picchu, it is said to be about 5 stories high.  One hiker hiked for 4 days over the top of the Andes on the Inca trail to get to this ladder.

PL lesson,  Everything that happens to us, is material for Growth.

I lost my cell phone today. Won’t bore you with the details, suffice to say after searching and searching some more, it has not turned up. There are a few more steps to be taken tomorrow, but the long and short of it is that I simply will likely find myself with out a phone. (cell)   Didn’t use it much, will I miss it, it will be inconvenient at times.  However…interestingly I am not really concerned.  whatever happens it will be for the best.  I believe that.

Would I cross the bridges I’ve shown you in this blog.  If I needed to get to the other side,and that was my option, yes I would.  Would you?

Peru – me and you?

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.

Is a day off really a day off.  When we go on vacation, flying to another destination, or for that matter, going to the cottage.  Is it really “free time”.  Always there is the preparations,the planning, the packing.  What is “free time”  what does that mean, what does it imply.  Does everything you do have to have a purpose?  If you have a back yard, as an adult how often do you, yourself use it?  I know gardeners garden, and children play but who tends the yards, cuts the grass, weeds the beds.  There is always something to do.  If it is a cottage, you have to open up the cottage, and while there,the same chores that are often performed at home in the city, or often repeated only now you are in a country setting.  Life can be busy can’t it.  Do you ever ask yourself what you are getting out of all this “busy”.  There is no easy answer, no simple solution, because we are all so unique in our thinking and how we live our lives.  This is what makes the world such a wonderful place.  Like nature, we are an assortment of trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, minerals,rocks and living organisms, etc. etc. even the weather has its moods. It can dazzle, delight,scare and frighten us, we accept that is what it is, Why is it so difficult for us to accept the differences in others.

Freedom is a state of mind.  Happiness is a state of mind. Our minds belong to each and everyone of us alone.  No one can read our minds,  nor can they change our minds.  We own our thoughts, and our actions.  We can share, but we cannot change anyone but ourselves.  What is peace and tranquility to one, may not be to another. Challenges are a constant in our lives, when we see them as opportunities for growth, we are working at attaining peace in our own lives.  Peace begins within.

Prayer of Protection

The light of God surrounds us

The love of God enfold us

The power of God protects us

The presence of God watches over us

Wherever we are God is, and all is well.

Feelings

feelings 1

 

Bonjour! Hey, how you doing today?  So happy to share this moment with you.

Feelings what a topic to meditate on. What a range , what a gamut of feelings to explore. smiles and send you love…..  Feelings are unique to each and everyone of us.  The depth, the breadth of our emotions belong to us. We need to learn to own them.  So easy to say, so hard sometimes to do.  AND, dear friend not only do we have to own our own feelings, we have to accept differences and respect the feelings of others.  We all have different ways of thinking and feeling.

Proverbs of Solomon  25 : 11  A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.

Sayings of the wise  24 : 26  an honest answer is like a kiss on the lips

China, Fuqing TempleWhen I was  younger, this place or one like it was  in my dreams, this is where I wanted to study and be, (China, Fuqing temple). I never got there physically, but today I found this photograph and my feelings of yesterday, came rushing back.  Value your ability to feel, feelings are part of who you are.  Own them, allow them to flourish and grow, even feelings that hurt or are painful, bring a lesson and their own rewards.  Trust and believe in the blessings of the Universe.  May you feel the love that surrounds you, today and always.   Amen.  Oyashikiri

Happy Sunday everyone!  Do you do anything special on Sundays, is it a special day for you today, what ever Sunday brings your way, embrace it for the opportunity it offers.  Another day to explore the wonders of life, the gifts of friendship you share with others, the weather in all its variety. We are blessed with a magnitude of possibilities.  There really are no problems in life, see them as opportunities.  Enrich your day and those around you  by being a mirror of light, joy and sunshine.  S M I L E.
