  • how often do you look in a mirror, but don’t really see
  • how many mirrors do you actually have in your home
  • how many of those do you actually use
  • is a mirror decoration, or a useful object

Each section represents a challenge or opportunity.  Is there a storyline  here, for me there is.  What about you…

As another year draws to an end, a new one is waiting in the wings.  The above will still be there, waiting to be found.  Every day, something new is added to our personal collage.  Some noticed, some not.  Never-the-less, seen or not, they become part of the puzzle that is “life”

Pictures do tell a story..

PL Precept #1   Life IS Art

Faith and Prayer

I was so overcome with emotion when I saw all your comments and encouragement on FB about our recent loss (Canaille) and my husband’s cancer.  We know we are facing a long road ahead, the treatment will be aggressive.

Your thoughtful words of encouragement, and empathy for our situation, is so heart warming.

Each day is a new beginning, tomorrow we hope for word on just what the team of doctors have  laid out as a game plan.

I feel so blessed to have shared time on this planet with each and everyone on of you. You are part of my happiness and joy.

Knowing and feeling the healing energy that is being sent our way, is a balm…

I pray that the Universe will embrace each of you with heaven-sent blessings.

PL Precept 11  Always be with God
# 11

going nowhere

Wakefiled 7

Sometimes, we dream of far away places,

Sometimes these events do take place,

Other times, what was, was

and the time comes when

our dreams are shelved.

live with hope in your heart

remember the journeys

the past is what your present is built on

live each moment to the fullest

PL Precept #7  Everything exists in Relativity

discover the true meaning of life

only then will you find true happiness

PL Precept # 16   All thing Progress and Develop

The only constant in life is Change….

Namaste      –      Oyashikiri

overcoming obstacles

An obstacle in life can come at us in many shapes, sizes and ways, it is how we deal with them that either stabilizes are stress levels or drives them around a bend.

A natural disaster, well…. there really isn’t much to be done, but find another way to reach our goal or destination.  We grow in life by experiencing and creatively dealing with the situations that come our way.   If we see the challenge as an opportunity we are more apt to enjoy the day no matter how we proceed.

May you be granted wisdom for your decisions,

hope for discouraging experiences,

your energy replenished during your tired times,

and renewed vision during down moments.

Always and Forever

Namaste – Oyashikiri

Spiritual Balance

1.10.14_002

 

 

 

Drolma Lhakhang,   http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Wakeley/41/69/146

>A Green Tara Tibetan Temple and former refuge of Atisha, one of Tibet’s greatest teachers. Founded in 1055. Sponsored in Second Life by Free Tibet.  Free meditation zafus, thankgas and other Dharma items are available on the 2nd floor gallery.<

As we travel the roads of life, and encounter the challenges that come our way, it is important that we maintain a spiritual balance.  Our “spirit” includes emotions, energy, hope, courage, , it embraces our individual choices regarding ethics, morals, values and integrity.  How you live your life, what you take from and give to life is an integral part of your spirit.

Let us choose to put our whole heart into whatever we do. Let us practice being mindful towards achieving a better balance in our daily living.  Keep prayer a daily practice, stay connected.

You are always in my prayers, now tomorrow and always… Oyashikiri

Smiles -Autism – Buddhism- churches

Smile and the world smiles with you

A friend sent me this picture and I returned the smile from ear to ear. Smiling is contagious.
First i would like to give you some information re. Autism that I have for those of you who venture into SL.
If you key in the world autism in the search window, you will be given a number of choices.
Autism Society of American and GBFA Commumity Center and Mall is a favourite.
Autism Support
Autism Society
Second Life Autism Network
The list goes on. I apologize that sometimes I take for granted the wealth of information and places to visit in SL.
Where I personally do not deal with autism in my life, I have friends that do. I’ve learned that where a child/individual who has difficulties in daily interactions in RL, shines and demonstrates amazing creativity with the tools SL offers.

To the other question about the various churches in SL, there are far too many to list. Again, once in SL, use the search window, type in the church, philosophy, teachings you are looking for and you will be directed to the various destinations.

For example, you can attend Buddhist Dharma teachings at the Buddha Center. This can be a busy place, they have traffic in the 1000s from all over the world at any given time.
Please dress accordingly.

Today I was visiting the Buddhist Temple in Aosagi,  Japan. This sim is themed as a region of Japan in the Edo period (1603-1868 AD). It is designed to support a number of cultural, educational and roleplay groups for the benefit of all. The owning group is Kurogawa Cho. a wonderful way to revisit history and learn about how life was in the late 17th century.
This region is set in sengoku period of the late 17th century of feudal Japan.
Please remember that SL is International, often you will encounter people who are from a different country and culture, some do not speak English, on this sim (community) the main language is Japanese.

Wherever you go, who ever you visit with, remember today’s teaching (PL teaching) People Grow by Being Praised and Applauded by Others.
When people recognize your accomplishments and celebrate with you. What happens?, we become more enthusiastic ourselves and want to do better.

Success is achieved by working in Harmony with others.

Applaud someone in your circle today, SMILE, the world is ours when we SMILE and live the PL Way.

Blessings all…. arms open wide to embrace you, my heart is singing ” I   L O V E    Y O U”     love is in the air, reach out and grab your share.

Ari thank you for the wonderful picture!
