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.

Tomorrow, December 2nd, there will be an evening ceremony as we joyfully celebrate Oshieoya-sama’s birthday. 7 PM.
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
we sometimes don’t realize just how “busy” we are… or how “noisy” our mind can be.
I awoke to the white sounds around me, gentle, steady, familiar, yet constant and comforting. Still, only in sleep do they disappear from my conscious awareness, to be replaced by the chatter of unknown voices, electronic media, and traffic during the day when I am away from home.
Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the word
The search for God is the riding around on an ox, hunting for the ox.
Today I will think about what is important in my life. Beginning with gratitude for now. YOU are part of my now, for this I am so blessed.
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.
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.

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.
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.

Live radiantly as the sun. Strive to always be bright and cheerful so you can enliven those around you.
from the pictures, all looks stark and bare – however that is not what was, what could not be capture in the frame, were the sounds of children laughing, crying out in glee at their discoveries. The happy songs of the chickadees that were swooping and landing with graceful delight at the offered treats.
I captured the trees in the late autumn wardrobes, as they patiently waited for the forecasted snow. There were people all around, dressed for the November chill, colourful jackets and scarves could be seen dotting the skyline as they emerged from their cars in the parking lot some yards away.
It was a happy day, everyone knew what was coming this way. You could feel the icy fingers of the teasing taunting wind… oh yes… snow would be here later that day.*
One should never assume that what you see at first glance, is what IS.
It is easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

Be easy going and live your life cheerfully and flexibly. Strong emotions can be the cause of various troubles. Always strive to have a cheerful and calm state of mind.

*It snowed in abundance later that afternoon =^_^=
Not sure if I shared this picture with you yet.. but it is perfect for my self portrait. This would be a selfie of me this afternoon. What ever it conjures up, this is how I felt. I could do nothing but BE, I lay like this hunk of metal…. dormant, not willing or interested in functioning. The possibilities I’m sure were there, but.. NOTHING was going to inspire action of any kind,
Seconds turned to minutes, and the minutes to hours. ??? What was the cause of this “malady” … a necessary visit to the eye doctor .. as a diabetic I need to visit him once a year. Have my eyes checked for health reasons, it was all for a good cause… and never before in years past, have I had such a negative reaction to this nice man. We all know such visits are painless.
Its the drops. I just can’t cope with the after effect they have on me. Before my husband would be waiting for me to drive me home. However, we all know.. I now have to get home on my own.. and big baby that I was, the sun was hurting my eyes, I felt like I was trying to drive with wool over my eyes. The anxiety was acute, and I succumbed to it. There I have admitted it. The Virgo in me, hates it when I fall prey to the “baby” in me.
Good or Bad….. it is your mirror. Sincere expressions invite good results, but insincere expressions can lead to unexpected trouble.
