day 5

PL Calendar day 5  2019

Start by thinking “this is Interesting”

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find  something interesting about it.  From there, you will be blessed with wisdom and something ew will come out of it;




this and that=love


found on the side of a road in Japan.

sometimes near a park , sometimes not


what can I say

two wild and crazy guys

traveling with us in Japan


a shop along the way


a place to pray and meditate


seen from the window of the bullet train

as we flew by on tracks of iron


as if it was yesterday

the energy and drive

remains with me today


we came from lands far away

to learn and to pray

what I found most amazing

was that these teachers spoke not one word of English

The majority of the listeners

spoke (Brazilian)Portuguese, Spanish and a very few of us English


we gathered to pray for World Peace

to this day

the energy from this last visit

drives me to work harder every day

to become a better person

one who can dedicate and focus on

living in a way to bring about

World Peace


In  Japan while there, it was hot the vegetation was lush

it was growing everywhere

where ever there was space

the green buds would push their way towards the light

LOVE is what nurtures growth

LOVE is what will see us through

LOVE should be part of everything we do


LOVE is beautiful


PL Precept # 11  Always be with God

The lovely Ana (from Spain) took this picture while visiting the Holy Land (Japan). She and her friends shared the room with us (dorm) what an energetic and positive group to share time with. The language was a challenge, but suffice to say, we had a great time – love-joy and happiness- always understood in any language.
Thanks Ana for permission to use this wonderful photo.

Have a great day everyone!

Express Yourself Freely, Without Hesitation

Two great guys, traveling companions to Japan, My journey would not have been the same without them. I was traveling with their parents who I have come to know and love dearly.
This was really my first exposure for any length of time to these two gems. They took a ton of pictures which I can’t wait to see, it was so interesting to see Japan through their eyes. What interested them and how spontaneously they reacted and lived each moment in true PL fashion.

Both Seita and Waku were traveling to Japan to do “misasage”, (volunteer work at the training) and work they did once we arrived. They could fall asleep at the drop of a hat, and be awake and present in an instant.
Their sense of humour was their own, it was fun to watch and be part of their antics.
They were caring, responsible and simply a joy to spend time with.

There were many lessons & great moments during my pilgrimage to the Holy Land, these two young men were part of what made the journey so special.

When we appreciate the people in our lives, and everything that comes our way. We experience a deeper joy in life.
