This is a sign post on the campus grounds of the PL headquarters community near Osaka.  I remember when I saw it, wondering if the construction happening off to the left, was something that would be finished that year, that was 2013.  Japan has been very “present” for the last several days in one way or another.  In particular these everyday signs/objects

Do I know why, no I don’t.  It is as if something is trying to speak to me, so I’ve been searching through pictures and casting out greetings/messages to see if anything “pops” up that says, “hey look here”  So far nothing, just this strong urge /desire to be in Japan.

A visit now, will mean that I will be the only member from Canada going, there will be a few members from the States I’m told, in a gathering of many, we may or may not connect.  I am surprised that I am wanting to go without the “security” of other church members being with me who speak the language and know their way around.  Previous time in Japan  has shown me that English is not a language many people speak or know in Japan.  But.. it seems there is a reason for this present moment, and I will have to practice patience to discover just what this “opportunity” is all about.

This peaceful and serene place is also on the grounds, day or night, it is tranquil and energizing.  This picture was taken from someone in the party from Spain, I love it.  I am filled with anticipation, yet I still don’t know if I can swing the trip on such short notice.

PL Precept #7  Everything exists in relativity

There comes a time when we have to “let go and let God”

dissatisfactions and complaints

 

happy not

not a happy face, nope, no joy found here

tired, weather worn and ragged

life has left an imprint of a bitter

state of mind

spent in the company of

dissatisfaction and complaints

hand of the past_edited-1

we, each and every one of us

is entitled to happiness

and the joy of living in a world

full of promise and hope

past charm

true, what was,

sometimes fades with the

changing seasons

but it is what is inside that counts

happy and even sad memories

make up our past

yet here we are

starting a brand new day

our lives continue

like sparkling  spring water flowing

over the dips and valleys

happily gurgling along

over the variety of rocks

there really is no other choice, but to go with the flow

so why not use what dissatisfaction

and momentary complaints that come our way

as catalysts to improve and change our days

so that happiness is the mainstay

of our  daily “every day” lives.

appreciate whatever comes your way

the shade you see, will soon shift and fade away

fairy tales and beyond

IMG_1277

Many of you will remember the story of Cinderella and the glass shoes.  It has been interesting over the years watching as  the storylines that are shown, in the “romantic” interest themes are so different.  Today’s young do not wait for their prince charming to come and rescue them from their life of toil and grime.

I felt the hurt, a couldn’t stop the single tear from falling

you saw my pain, and gently wiped it dry

IMG_1273

We played with dolls, we dressed them, told them stories, cared for them, till the time came, when they were put on a shelf, and left there to amuse themselves, they were part of our past.

we fell in love, every day was sun filled

I walked on air and saw every petal of the single rose

you brought to me each day

IMG_1268

I dried the petals and safely tucked them away

I knew I would keep and cherish them all my days

Time changes us, sometimes we stay on the same path that our love is on, and often times, as the world opens up to us, we find ourselves in different parts of the city, coming home only to eat, sleep and then we return to the life we have in another part of the “world’…. yes world, because the world we shared with someone at a different time and space,  is now no longer where our daily focus is.. Our world has gotten bigger and with it, our thoughts and wants are no longer the same.

One day I asked myself, what was in that pretty vase

for I had long gone past the time

when it was part of what I did that mattered  in my every day.

Some of us, can smile, remember the memory and move on.  We clean out the vase, and either give it away, or put it to another use … something more in step with how we are … today…

Once upon a time

this was an acreage of vibrant life

that rang with the call of birds,

who had their homes in the trees that stood there

FullSizeRender (2)

now the land has been cleared

the wild life that had called this area their home

have had to move on

change is the only constant in life

fairy tales, are a part of growing up

the reality we live

through our journey in life

the character we build

the lessons we learn along the way

these are what takes us into beyond

IMG_1264

Love is everywhere

love IS forever

material possessions are temporary

the only love that last forever

is one that is free to BE

True love transcends all earthly boundaries

and it all begins

within

some days

dog's life

some days

there is no  other way

but just show you

yup, this is just that kind of day

see you all tomorrow, love you

PL Precept 17  Grasp what is most essential

PL Precept #19  Begin once you Perceive

PL Principle # 6  I will not be stubborn, beng captured by my own thoughts

author’s note… it is my stubborn nature, that pushed and pushed, till my body said… no more..  so want to or not.. now I am listening, that light bulb moment… when  OK OK…I let go, stopped doing, ,doing  doing

PL Principle # 2  I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my OWN thinking and actions.

Good day, Bom dia, Goedendag

abandoned 2The start of another work week, you find yourself doing the same drive, at the same pace, and really not getting anywhere fast.

Is today, another day, or is it like yesterday, ho hum, if you turn the radio on, already they’ll be playing songs that are all about snow and Xmas themes.

Did you bring your thermos of coffee/tea?  What is it that is keeping the traffic at such a slow pace.

You realize no matter how you fret, or how you moan and groan, it is simply going to happen the same way every day, unless you change your pattern.

Maybe go a different route,it could be a bit of a round about way, but the scenery will be different, and hey

since the traffic is not all going the same way, lane after lane, just maybe

you’ll get to work on time,  bonus, you’ll have time to leisurely make your way to your desk

habits and patterns are hard to break

we do get attached, some of us .. no matter how long it takes us, we are determined to take that fast lane with every other driver headed into the city

Try doing something different today, just for fun, see if you can do it… with a happy start it can be done,

when we take the challenge to do something different, we are often surprised at just how easy it becomes to find that doing something new, is rewarding.  Letting go of tired and old habits, can and will leads us to a whole new way of seeing life.   New experiences, new people, and new adventures.

When we follow our dreams, and walk unknown roads, we grow, we are happier, the seeds we sow, will reap rewards.

determination

desktop-1406688492

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…
