graduation day!!

Cultivando alegria no curso de inglês.  (English follows)

No dia 05 de julho, finalizei o meu curso de inglês conforme condição da faculdade para iniciar meu curso em setembro (mais detalhes, ler vivência “Minha Jornada no Canadá”). Foram 9 semanas, estudando das 9hs às 16:30 diariamente (exceto fins de semana) o que me deixava bem ocupado.

No início, eu acreditava que seria fácil, pois as pessoas consideravam meu nível de inglês muito bom. No entanto, acabei melhorando muito meu inglês. Percebi que cometia muitos erros e, consequentemente, me esforcei para aprender ao máximo. Durante o curso, fui recebendo prece de Oyashikiri sempre que possível.

Houve momentos que senti pressão e tive algumas preocupações (por exemplo, busca por apartamento para alugar), e isto começou a afetar meu desempenho uma vez que estava mais preocupado com resultado do que aprender. Em resumo, eu estava perdendo a alegria de realizar o curso de inglês. Como peelista, eu notei que era o momento certo para buscar os ensinamentos da PL e praticar o que aprendi ao longo dos anos: ter gratidão pela oportunidade e orar para cultivar entusiasmo e criatividade.

Com essa prática, tudo mudou e passei a realmente sentir alegria no curso, até mesmo meus colegas da turma tinha prazer de estudar comigo. Sem dúvidas, foi uma experiência gratificante, pois pude conhecer pessoas de diferentes países e fazer grandes amigos.

No último dia do curso, estes novos amigos demonstraram muito carinho que até fiquei sem palavras. Ficamos muito próximos por compartilharmos os mesmos desafios e mesmos objetivos, e assim um apoiava o outro.

Eu realmente agradeço à Deus e ao Oshieoyá-Sama. Os ensinamentos da PL são um tesouro que faz total diferença na vida de uma pessoa, como esta vivência.

Agradeço a todos pelo tempo e atenção em ler esta vivência. Que Deus abençoes a todos com alegria e paz.

Bringing joy to everyday classes.

On July 5th, I finished my English course as a condition to start the Algonquin College (please, more details about it, see the previous testimony “My journey to Canada”). I had studied for 9 weeks from 9 am to 4:30 pm every day (except for weekends) and that kept me very busy.

In the beginning, I thought I would handle it easily, once people considered my level of English as very good. Actually, it turned out that I have gotten lots of improvement. I realized that I still had many mistakes and, as a result, I did my best to study and learn as much as I could. During the course, I had been receiving Oyashikiri prayer whenever was possible.

There were times that I felt pressure and some concerns appeared (e.g looking for a place to rent), and that began to affect negatively on my performance since I was worried about only the results instead of the learning process. In summary, I was losing the joy and excitement to go to school. As a PL member, I noticed that it was the right moment put in prqactice PL teachings that I’ve learned over the years: everyday express appreciation for the opportunity and pray to bring joy and be creative.

Doing that was a game-changer because I really enjoyed my time at the language school and even my classmates were so pleased to have me there. Definitely, it was a great experience because I have met many people from other countries and I have made valuable friends.

On my graduation day, these new friends showed so much care for me that I became speechless. In the end, we have created a bond between us because some of them shared the same challenges and the same goals as mine, so we could support each other and we can now help each other.

I do have appreciation for God and Oshieoya Sama. The PL teachings are a treasure that can make a huge difference in one’s life like the testimony above.

Thank you for taking this moment to read this. May God bless us all with joy and peace.


Thank you for sharing Yoshi, (Yoshizumi Terada) have a good day everyone… Enjoy a great start to a brand new week!

a mess!

Card mess 3

You don’t start out wanting to make a mess, but, that is what you end up with.  I had fabric I wanted to use, part of a dress, a piece from a pair of dress pants, in my head, I thought it would work out.. there were several attempts, In the end, I hit a wall.  The idea will resurface, but not now.  Now it is time to take a break, do something else.

The Tao says, ” a wise person, knows when to stop, a regroup.”  I’ve learned before that trying to force something to “work” when it just isn’t happening, assures a person of one thing…. FRUSTRATION  and a product that lacks “harmony”.

Sometimes we just have to accept.  We made a mess. =^_^=

Faith and Prayer

I was so overcome with emotion when I saw all your comments and encouragement on FB about our recent loss (Canaille) and my husband’s cancer.  We know we are facing a long road ahead, the treatment will be aggressive.

Your thoughtful words of encouragement, and empathy for our situation, is so heart warming.

Each day is a new beginning, tomorrow we hope for word on just what the team of doctors have  laid out as a game plan.

I feel so blessed to have shared time on this planet with each and everyone on of you. You are part of my happiness and joy.

Knowing and feeling the healing energy that is being sent our way, is a balm…

I pray that the Universe will embrace each of you with heaven-sent blessings.

PL Precept 11  Always be with God

Chop suey 9.27.16 -abandoned

p1000385

There are times when I feel simply overwhelmed by the creativity of others.  Thus was the case here, my husband is used to my hollering “stop the car, stop the car” and having to pull over turn around and bring me back to the “whatever” that brought on this outburst.  I was totally taken by this building, it was once an antique car lot.  The detail, the whimsical  character of the architecture.  I would have loved to have met the previous owner.

p1000393

See the tie man!!  I loved, loved, loved it.  I toured around the building, as much as I could without being an intruder.

p1000412

The second floor balconies made me itch with curiosity.  Wanting a ladder or access to the inside to I could get closer..  I’ll post a shot from the road, so you can see what I first saw.

p1000397

Like HELLO.. how could I just drive by and not get a closer look.  It was on getting closer that I saw all the details, and the charming way the owner had put character into the building.

This is what life is.  Think about it.  How often do you meet someone, or see someone and think, how interesting, I wonder??  But, we never follow through, we never take that chance .. we are polite, and go about our business. I was blessed that in growing up, I was encouraged to meet and greet the world in a positive light.

Not only in old abandoned buildings and lost,left behind vehicles do I see beauty and wonder.  I see it in my fellow-man.

PL Precept #10  Love Yourself and Others

PL Principle # 3   I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things.

There will be more pictures of this house, (Norm’s “Thursday Doors”  but before I sign off, please let me show you the car that was left behind. It was being textured by Mother Nature, she was looking “some” good…=^_^=

p1000399

Beauty if in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it ….

For those of you who love “rust detailing” and the different patina that Mother Nature can bestow on metal

this car is showing a lot of promise

caught in time

There are moments when I am caught up in what I see.  We were in a drive through, when suddenly an ordinary moment became one of dimension and depth.

DSC00234

I was drawn into another world, each blade, each stem took on personality of its own. I wanted to capture that moment, and I did.  It all took place in probably less than a minute.

PL Precept #19

Begin Once you Perceive

Even now, hours later, when I look at that moment in time, these pictures, speak volumes to me. I want to experience every blade. each leaf, and discover the marvel of the textures in the bark

How awesome.  Simplicity, I was inspired, I took action, and I’m blessed now with the happy feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction… Life is good.I so love being part of it.  Thank you for sharing the journey with me. =^_^=

adventures in a corn field

corn field

Being a city girl, I would never have thought of playing in a corn field, yet I now know that many a youngster has spent many hours discovering a wonderful play haven in the tall passage ways found in the corn fields. When I saw this picture the writer in me wanted to weave a story of the little fairies and trolls who made  summer homes under the plants, enjoying the shade the leaves and husks provided.  That would have been fun, but a distraction from the task at hand.

We are told in PL that life will take on a greater dimension when we are able to perceive our surroundings with more ” sensitivity”.  So as I start my day with my visit with you, I ponder, on whether or not I meander down the road for a while, or focus on my “list” of “things I should do” today.

OH.. hello a new face, a new possibility, well what a nice surprise.  What can I learn from you, would you like to come closer, wow a face to face with a cow,  Now that brings a smile, a new experience I wasn’t expecting. what fun.

Look for new ways to learn and add knowledge/experiences…. the seasons come and go before we know it, another year has gone by. Make each day count.  Cultivate new possibilities with a positive outlook.
