Happy week-end everyone!

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a Turning Point

Chop Suey Tuesday 6.28

 

IMG_1687

Sometimes we want to rest

we do our best to make the time

only you find yourself

being watched with expectation

IMG_1689

just to make sure you understand

that your taking a break, is NOT

what you should be doing

I did my best to ignore the pair

however their persistence

was not to be ignored

dog noses are very cold

being stared at is not really

a soothing lullaby

all is not lost

I did find two cars for my

“play car” collection =^_^=

I started a card

the beaver has a chewed ear,

I did find two maple leaves

then suffered a kind of writer’s block

so except for hello

that’s it for the day

my Mother is 95, legally blind  and hard of hearing

yet here she is doing what she does best,

living each day, getting the best out of whatever opportunity

comes her way

In this case she is looking at a smart phone to catch up

on recent pictures.

my sister who is trying to catch a glimpse is now in Iceland

where she will be surrounded by

happy people, celebrating the win today against England (soccer)

 here .. my addiction…

cold, very cold, ice coffee with a side glass

of ice water..

the perfect mix.

all this to say

life is good everyday

someone sent me a smile today

let me share it with you

saying

take your pick

the caption on this one was… take your pick…

PL# 18 – Each Moment is a Turning Point..

We walk past a door (opportunity)…. or we seize the moment.

PL # 15.  All is a mirror

When we are calm we reflect that quiet serenity

I love this picture, like, WoW, these mountain goats are climbing a near vertical wall.  I found it on a site, that just now when I went back to reference it again, the page was gone, or not available to me.  We speak of reflection, perception, to the photographer who took this picture, I say kuddos for your patience and ability to do this capture.  My musing is, in Nature, the animal does what is instinctively right, …. need to get to point X,  hmmm what is the best way, oh yes, this way, and simply goes about doing it.

The mind, I can speak for mine  will often prevent me from doing something, because I think about it too much.

 

PL Precept #1 – Life is Art

Every day, every waking moment, is a new beginning.

Spanish moss draped like a golden chandelier, some one with a creative mind and vision, got the idea, “saw it” “acted on it” et voila!

PL Precept #19 – Begin once you Perceive

If you are wondering how many Precepts we have in PL Perfect Liberty, we have 21 Precepts.

By following the Precepts, we grow each day in all ways, to live our lives in a peaceful and meaningful way, helping others to know love, happiness, and caring friendships, creating an ambiance that will bring us to world peace.

Love is not an emotion that can come and go

if you truly love, it is forever

love is God

you / me

Open Up

Opportunities don’t always come and knock on the door,                                        landscape 3

Usually, they present themselves as a challenge.

Today was the church garage sale, we do one, once and  sometimes twice a year

As I watched people arrive, park and saunter over to the tables, I wished I had ..  more time to say Hello, Hi!, So nice that you could drop by…..

But of course, there was little time for anything but to keep putting stuff out and answering the many questions being asked by the eager early arrivals.

Church staff were kept busy, putting stuff out, or helping with things being purchased.  There was a steady stream of new arrivals.
here are several reasons our church does a garage sale, and yes it is to raise    money for the church… but it is also to meet the many people who drop in to       visit us  each year, and to get acquainted with them

What I realized today, was that the opportunity was there, but the reality was, we were not staffed to properly achieve the part about.. getting reacquainted  having time to actually visit and say hello to the visitor who dropped in.

So… did we really accomplish what we set out to do?  The opening our doors to say Hello and  meet new people… That was/is an important part of our intended goal.  Sometimes even when we are proactive, it isn’t till we actually play out the steps that we have scheduled and planned, that we are able to see the discrepancies.

hmmm time to rethink, how to “open up”

gone fishing

Gone Fishing

Does that expression mean anything to you?  In days gone by, “Gone Fishing” meant just that, someone had put a shingle outside their business and had taken time to go fishing.

Going on a holiday, the phrase would signify that the person was taking time to get away from the city, their 9 – 5 routine was going to be on hold… they were “going fishing”.  Family was packed up and away they headed for a seaside vacation, time at the lake, river, anywhere but in the city.

My son goes fishing, once the season starts, he puts a kayak on his car and off he goes, he will fish whenever he has the time to get away. No he doesn’t live in a small town, or out in the country, he lives in downtown “Big City”  It his way of finding his quiet time, he dedicates his time to making time for something that brings him an inner quiet to recharge his batteries to tend to his day-to-day challenges/opportunities.

Opportunities don’t always just happen, we have to be proactive in working towards our goals,to ensure we remain, spiritually healthy.

enthusiasm – opportunities

aqua dome hotel..Austria  aqua-dome.at

This is the Aqua dome hotel in Austria, don’t know about you, but I find it very inviting. Today I watched people jumping into cold water where the ice had been chopped away for the annual polar bear dip (fund-raiser) we are not talking one or two people, there was a large gathering.  All for a good cause, they put on their swim trunks and other festive costumes to jump into the freezing water while a crowd gather to watch the antics.  Weather here was below freezing at the time of day they took the plunge.

I have since learned that this is not uncommon .. the above was the picture of the day 7 December 2012 (Telegraph.co.uk), a winter swimmer drove into freezing waters, Beijing Lake in Shenyang China.

The Huffington Post, posted this picture along with a story on how in an effort to help a family in Missouri, thousands across the country took a dive into freezing waters across the USA.  What kind of determination and hardiness does it take to prompt a person to take this challenge?  In our daily lives we might not take such extreme actions, but we do have to gather our inner strength to tackle some of the difficulties/problems that drop in on us.

This is more “me” – a Japanese Snow monkey settles in to a hot spring  (Jigokudani,Nagano, Japan) for a warm soothing lazy laid back, meditation, (private time).. The enthusiasm in which we tackle our challenges, can often lead to opportunities that bring about positive results into our lives.  Especially when we put our whole effort (Makoto=sincerity) into our actions.

sleeping squirrelA day of activity leaves us tuckered out and ready for a good sleep, especially when we have applied ourselves to the day’s events, living each moment to the fullest….when we finally find that quiet patch, we can easily lie down and effortlessly sleep.

Express your appreciation!

nederlands 4

Be a Peacemaker who honour the diversity of all life.

Harmony does not require that we are all the same.

A single note played simultaneously through several different instruments does not take advantage of the beautiful music that emerges when different chords are played.

Appreciate and acknowledge the differences in others, as distinct as we may seem to be, we all share the spiritual  link of being  One with the Universe.
