a time of joy filled fun and laughter
a time of joy filled fun and laughter
Happiness is when a group of people come together to combine their talents to bring smiles to the audience, young and old.
The Perfect Liberty Kappa-Za work tirelessly, and diligently to bring the “Way” of Perfect Liberty to everyone.
Let us also put “Makoto” (sincerity) into everything we do. Make every second count.
In quiet reflection today, I wanted to transport myself back to the Holy Land (Japan, headquarters) if only one could simply snap one’s fingers and voila.. we would be standing where we wanted to be.
Wanting, wishing, does not make it so. I am where I am, thousands of miles away, different continent, time zone and season.
On my mind this morning, is Rev. Toyomi Hirayama, he was the minister who did the translations for me when I met with Rev. Mitsuo Michishita. Sometimes when we are living a moment we don’t realize just how much that space in time will actually impact our everyday until months later.
Rev. Ise Kouji who I only met during my last visit there, was so kind so thoughtful, always a big smile.Unable to speak English, he still conveyed happiness at sharing and exchanging time with the English visitor.
The minister there from Argentina, Sensi Arthuro Higashigata, it was the same, so friendly and outgoing. We came from all over to attend the celebrations and lectures. The actual physical time was short .. but the learning, and discovery of self, is ongoing.
Faith will shine through, even the darkest of times, Nature will go on with her infinite art forms, and in quiet meditation, I can be “home”

another look at the side of the building I posted yesterday…
there was a house behind it, picture will be next
as a writer I would love to interview the house
have it tell me of its previous lives
of course it can’t be done, but the writer’s imagination
hankers for a story, a peak into the past
today, I’m resting my eye,
one cataract gone, the other one in October
I slept off and on all day yesterday
up to eat and have my drops
otherwise, my mind was drifting
lazily through the fertile fields
of my endless dream states
see, disco dancing @ Pacifique
Eclair in the lead
asleep or awake
life is good.
have a good one dear friends
I think I should be able to get another 24 hours of pampering

as I walk past you today
I hear only the cicada chirping away in the branches
the black bird has flown out o sight
but I can feel him watching
you see ALL
you have changed so much
over the years,
yet you still look as majestic
as you did three years ago
I told you then I’d be back
it took three years, but here I am
I am changed as well
I feel like I will live with you forever
I know in my heart
that we are ONE
that forever is NOW
that tomorrow will really never come
cuz when I wake
it will be today
so just like now
here and now
we are forever bound
PL Precept # 11 Always be with GOD
These were the doors that we went through every day. To classes, lectures, meals, and these are the same doors that we came through for our refuge. Our time out, our time away from “activity. We were 12 ladies in this room. yet, it is amazing that when in the room, in your own space, if you wanted to just lie and be quiet, tend to your whatever… you had that space. Even though many of us were in some way strangers, we co-existed with a sense of harmony that was “extra-ordinary”. Somehow, we knew when to communicate, exchange and when to simply “be” That is an “art” in itself.
Every morning, many woke early to make the journey to this sacred place to pray. Some would do it several times during the day. When we had the torch ceremony, many marched there from the residence carrying a torch. This was a sight to see as darkness fell, and all one could see was the torches walking in unison towards the First Founder’s Tomb (Okutsuki) Usually I would be in the procession, this year, due to my jet lag condition, I got there by bus, so for the first time, I saw the flames coming towards us, it was awesome to see. The feeling of being part of such a devout ceremony was moving.
There are no words that can fully describe the journey I was on. Yes, my body did not like the jet lag, and had me lying low at times, but the energy and the positive interaction of everyone around me made the experience one I will never forget. There were times where my thoughts drifted in and out of a tired overworked mind. I did some of my most brilliant thinking during some of those “out of body” moments, too bad, the memory cells were on vacation.
