Day of Peace -Dec.1

even in the cool, the earthy fragrance of wood was present

Today in PL, we celebrate (the 1st of every month) with a special ceremony with a Day of Peace ceremony. Through the world peace ceremony, we pray for World Peace and dedicate ourselves to live as peaceful human beings in our own worlds, which include our home, school, work and community.

Service is at 10 a.m. for those unable to join us at the church, please say a silent prayer wherever you are focused on peace for all.

World peace starts from Peace at Home. Your life is a part of the bigger world beyond you. Start with your surroundings and spread peace in the world around you.

Imagine walking through the woods, hearing water, going to explore and discovering this site. Wow. A lot of beauty has been rediscovered this year with travel restricted to places closer to home, many are revisiting the greenspaces not far from their own “doorstep*”.

New encounters can help you change. Be up for anything even if its out of your comfort zone. This is a chance for you to improve yourself as a human being

Rhyolite

a secret hide-a-way

Deep within every forest is a hidden source of adventure. There are cavities in gnarled stumps, within rock walls, and under fallen trees. there is a world of woodland creatures both real and from the “underworld” of the “wee ones”. It takes years of practice and the strong desire to connect, but when we believe and persist, we are rewarded.

The earth’s connection to the regions of outer space can be found when we let our inner selves open to the vibrating energies that surround us when we walk softly amongst the trees. We must remain silent and vigilant, so that we can tune in to the frequency of “fantasy” that will naturally hook into our own force field.

No two human beings, share the same frequencies. There is an energy in every mineral, do you believe in the power of the precious and semi precious stones?

Today I was drawn to rhyolite, (a lava that can be found in volcanic areas, during the solidification process, gas bubbles are trapped inside and are filled by siliceous material such as quartz crystals, jaspers and other minerals. I found that interesting since recently I have been collecting Jasper which is the “green” form of Rhyolite and comes from Australia.

Rhyolite is an emotional balancer, it can clear away emotional wounds and scars from the past, nurtures love and stimulates clarity. Perfect for this season’s sharing. Yes… more to follow on this.

No one can take away the joy you get from putting your whole heart into something. The joy you feel when you’ve put your all into something is your and yours alone. Nobody can take that away from you.

rock/wire sculpture -Merrickville, On.Canada

There will always be a way. if you persist and be creative without giving up, you will find solutions that you had not considered before.

Prefect Liberty 2020.28

I have gone many times to Merrickville, but it was only on my last visit there that I came across this giraffe. I stood for some time looking at it, before I walked down the street to get a better look. Years ago I had attempted to do some sculptures with chicken wire, I know the effort and time I had to put in to accomplish what results I did get.

This tall imposing giraffe was a marvel to me. There were not that many people about that day, so I was able to stand and enjoy him/her for some time. The posture, the face, the use of the stones all came together so beautifully. I’m sorry now that I did not attempt to find the owner and perhaps the creator…. (note to self.. a revisit soon or when weather permits and the season is right.)

Begin each day with a renewed sense of appreciation. Always remember that you are here today thanks to God, and thanks to the many people around you. Let’s make each day meaningful by starting out with a feeling of gratitude.

efficiency gone wrong

Oophs.. click, click, really! in my efficiency I deleted and cleared out mail that I had in my IN folder, then I manually cleared out the deleted file. Like DUH. What did I have for supper.?? I read the incoming, but some I had left to return to, I wanted to reply, or comment. Sorry… I had good intentions however, my efficiency manager, took a wrong turn in the gray matter.

Flexibly adapt to changes. the world around you changes, and so do you. enjoy the transformations and deal with them flexibly.

today 22nd.

a taste of lace

The forecast said, snow this afternoon, and snow it did. I got out for one more wander ..

the peat moss is covered with all the fallen “leaves”

I could feel the stillness in the air. there was a thin layer of ice on most of the water.

There was a delicious sense of anticipation, it was cold, but not an angry cold, my fingers sought warmth in my pockets, I enjoyed the fresh air, and the brisk stirring of the teasing breeze as it tousled my hair.

From no snow to inches deep on the deck around the supper hour. Already I have been out twice to clear the deck and patio area where the dogs can run. Yes.. I will delight in snuggling down under the covers tonight.

You will find joy when you immerse yourself in your task. When you face your tasks with a can do attitude, you will be filled with enthusiasm and inspiration.

obstacles

once useful, now scattered and left askew, doing nothing useful, just taking up space
this wonderful derelict I couldn’t ignore, I so hope someday, someone will adore it by restoring it.

Life presents us with challenges/opportunities every day. Sometimes we hear the call, when we do, we can take it on, or do our best to ignore it. However, the top photo is what happens to the clutter in our minds, when we try to push aside, or put off, something that needs our attention.

What are we back to….. choices.. yup.. somethings won’t go away on their own, WE have to take a hard look, and put an action plan in place. Or it will become overwhelming.


Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things. The outcome is in your hands.
