In life when we begin a new project, or decide to make a major change in our lives, usually the first step, is a germ of a seed is planted, it takes root and then begins to grow. With some people the idea may lie dormant for some time before they actually decide to move forward. Then again, some may begin the process but get side tracked and the idea is left to grow on its own, without any further input from the originator.
When we don’t take a firm stand or move forward with a determination to see the project through, results are often not what we expected or anticipated.
Some roots show such determination they will grow with each passing moment, slowing inching their way to the light of day and will use any way/method available to them to do so.
When we try to suppress a desire or passion that needs expression, especially one that is a lesson in life we have to learn or face… …. …. the force of nature will prevail.
There are times when we see a perfection …. however the perception, might not necessarily be consonant with reality, in moments of grace (enriching time in inner development and self-expression)… those involved in creative and artistic endeavors will find their “work” very satisfying. For it will appear to be divinely inspired and when such moments happen, relish them, enjoy the moment, then flow with the changes…. let go, let it change to what it will be…

May your day be blessed with peace and happiness!
Sometimes I just want to share with you,
Thank you for spending time with me today. There are times when there are so many feelings and thoughts in my mind, I know that its best to just let someone else speak. =^_^=
Do you use the I Ching, if you are familiar with the Book of Changes, you may like myself find it to be a wonderful guide when you come to a crossroad … and are pondering which direction to go. Often I just know and instinctively “I follow my nose” as the expression goes. Today, these are the words I read “you come face to face with the perpetrator of wrong thinking. Circumstances are such that you can effortlessly seize control of the situation. Proceed carefully. It is dangerous to attempt or abolish an old and ingrained pattern all at once..”

A cheerful bouquet of flowers for you dear readers.
Different flowers usually have separate meanings – flower symbolism is broadly characterized by two essentially different considerations – essence and shape.. By its nature it speaks of transition – the process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. We anticipate their beauty, we appreciate their fragrance, marvel at their delicate petals and intricate throats, veins and petals. We even share the beauty and pleasure they give with those we love and use them to express our love and feelings. when as Nature does, they fade and pass on, we treasure the time spent, the memory of the moment, and we move on, happy with the shared moment tucked away in our hearts. Yellow in symbolism when it comes to flowers, usually represents the sun/sunshine – it is very yang. (I Ching) Egyptians would put flowers on a table as a reminder of the realities of death, and the joys and pleasures in life. The painter of this picture, used a blue that speaks to me of the heavens. Blue the colour of rarefied atmosphere, clear blue skies.. In symbolism, blue often represents “thinking’ (thoughts)………..
Today’s PL lesson is about becoming a better person. If we are content with the status quo, our progress will stop, we are encouraged to always look for ways to improve and become more in tune with the Universe. To continue our journey in life, moving forward. Praying every day that our journey will bring us closer to a Divine State of Being.… one step at a time, mindful of the present….. let love in…. let love motivate your actions, and your thoughts. Allow love to colour your world today. May the blessings from above rain down like a cleansing and refreshing spring shower to feed your soul….That the flower that is you, will be nourished and grow stronger this day……. so your beauty will shine for all the world to see. Love is to be shared, not squandered ………S M I L E …… Oyashikiri

So be Yourself!
Live your life to the fullest.
Relax and express yourself freely.
Be who you are.
Accept you won’t always be perfect
In Taoism, there is no such thing as perfection anyway.
As humans we need to stop wanting definition for everything,
Sometimes, life is what it is.
Love and Blessings. now and always.
