What happens when suddenly you realize it is Thursday! Wow, like how did this happen, it came at me right out of the blue.
Like the seasons, was it just yesterday I sat and watched the birds fly by on the horizon, couldn’t have been, when I look out side now, the world is white, we’ve had snow. Lots of it, although, it was so mild yesterday, temperatures went up to 40 degrees F. Today is going to be another mild day.
I had thought of going to New York city for the Perfect Liberty Thanksgiving service this month. The thought of seeing NY again, I’ve been away from some time, actually a LONG time, so close to the Chinese New Year, a side trip down to Chinatown would have been a real treat.
If you saw my blog the other day on Chinese New Year, and took the time to watch the video on the foods prepared for the special celebration, you would have seen a lot of colour, especially reds.
It was not to be. In the Japanese Church of Perfect Liberty, we use a word, Kamuwaza, it basically means, “God’s Act” or through no other reason, but that “something” just doesn’t happen, due to many different circumstances. In this case, all the signs were not pointing towards a good productive trip, my pushing the envelope to go anyway, would mean that, my desire, my wishes, were “mine” and not necessarily were they going to happen.
The TAO. also addresses this, there are times when we simply need to listen to the “signs” around us, and STOP pushing forward. It is time to STOP, reflect, and regroup.
