feelings 1


Bonjour! Hey, how you doing today?  So happy to share this moment with you.

Feelings what a topic to meditate on. What a range , what a gamut of feelings to explore. smiles and send you love…..  Feelings are unique to each and everyone of us.  The depth, the breadth of our emotions belong to us. We need to learn to own them.  So easy to say, so hard sometimes to do.  AND, dear friend not only do we have to own our own feelings, we have to accept differences and respect the feelings of others.  We all have different ways of thinking and feeling.

Proverbs of Solomon  25 : 11  A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.

Sayings of the wise  24 : 26  an honest answer is like a kiss on the lips

China, Fuqing TempleWhen I was  younger, this place or one like it was  in my dreams, this is where I wanted to study and be, (China, Fuqing temple). I never got there physically, but today I found this photograph and my feelings of yesterday, came rushing back.  Value your ability to feel, feelings are part of who you are.  Own them, allow them to flourish and grow, even feelings that hurt or are painful, bring a lesson and their own rewards.  Trust and believe in the blessings of the Universe.  May you feel the love that surrounds you, today and always.   Amen.  Oyashikiri

Learning is a Lifelong Process

Learning is a Lifelong Process

“No matter your age, there is something to be learned and there is always room for improvement. Always remember that there is wisdom to be gained from any situation.”

The day I had today, had me coming home and digging through my PL teachings, till I found the above lesson. Life doesn’t always provide me with a clear picture. I have to come home and process the feelings and emotions I picked up along my journey (running errands)

I just finished reading Louise Penny’s the Beautiful Mystery. the story line takes place in a remote part of Quebec in a monastery where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace and prayer. By suppertime today I was ready to transport myself to the serenity of the chapel or one of the cells. Where I could sit/lie down and turn the “chaos” of the world out.. .. simply take, long deep breaths in gathering in the calm, then holding the quiet before letting out the pollution
of the city.

I will visualize the chapel in the Peace Tower in the Holy Land and recall the tranquility I found there.

Closing my eyes, I allow the moment to wash over me…..
Aaahhhh my smile is starting, yes, I feel now that it will be a happy sleep. good night dear reader….

May you too be blessed with the comfort of a loving heart.
