Funny how time slips away

This picture* was taken somewhere along the Central Coast, farmland,ocean, ocean, farmland with some nice mountains thrown in along the way for good measure.  I talk a lot about quiet, contemplation and the living life as it it presented to you.  Being unique each and every one of us, experiences life in a different way.  No matter how grown up I get,I never cease to be amazed at how much I am touched by another human beings courage, or determination in the face of challenging news or obstacles that are put in their paths.

No matter how difficult today seems, when you have that piercing moment of stabbing pain and doubt, remember that it is only a passing segment in you life, and that tomorrow will be another day.  Actually in an hours time, this moment will be part of history.

LOL how often of late do I hear, darn I forgot what I came in to do, or I know I left my glasses somewhere, for me its my car keys, they turn up, inanimate objects get put down, or left behind when something new (thought/phone call/distraction) comes along.

In PL, there is a Principle that I have to work hard at everyday to do my best to live in this way.  It is PL Principle #2, I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather. Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.   Principle #6 – I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.  There are only 21 principles in PL (Perfect Liberty) but by golly, each one packs a mitt full of lessons to work on …  My challenge every day is to try and bring each one into my life as my journey through the day progresses.

It helps me to be reminded to leave the past in the past, and to remember that what is important is what I am doing right now, this very moment. ( I smile thinking of you as I write this knowing that you will be reading my words sometime later today.)  A friend asked me who I am speaking to when I get personal … I’m speaking to each and ever pair of eyes that wander through my thoughts with me. I feel very blessed to have met you through this blog.  And believe me when I say that I appreciate each and everyone of you, I’ll never tire of our friendship, it will change, it will flow, and it will grow.  That is what life is all about.

WE are not inanimate objects, we are a life form, part of the Universe, we survive and regroup, we are like the moss and the lush green forest that reclaims what time forgets.  It is a slow process, but the growth is life.  Life is beautiful in all its stages.

Spotless Mind Cafe

Spotless Mind Cafe

I’ve been struggling with my blood sugars. Headaches, fatigue and unease have been daily companions. Rev. Eugene was coming over today to pray with me and help give the meeting area a spiritual lift. Tomorrow I will host a prayer circle. Needless to say, I was dragging and not the liveliest of “hosts” prior to his arrival.
Some company and prayer soon put that right. I can’t say enough how much prayer can uplift and ease a tired “mind”.
PL minsters are always there for us. It is easy to forget just how powerful a consultation/meeting can be, certainly the “Universe” provided for me today.

A gift started my day ( of a call from Spain, =^_^=)  is it no wonder that when I took a tour into SL, I found myself at a place called Spotless Mind Cafe. Your calls, comments and e-mails have been so appreciated. I feel so very  blessed.

You can find the cafe at  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Pure%20Dreams/151/119/21

Tomorrow is another day.  Thanks again for being there for me today.  I love you all… Today, tomorrow and always

If only

If only

How often do we think there are not enough hours in a a day…
How often do we think, if only I had done . xyz….. the outcome would have been different….
If only, this had happened,then blah blah blah.. life is not wrapped up in a neat little bow

The wrapping paper is not always pretty, and the ribbon can be frayed, but, when we pray, when prayer is a daily activity in our lives Our lives take on a very different “flavour”, our wrapping takes on a pleasing and uniquely personal “style”

Prayer, faith and devotion are at the core of living in harmony with “Nature

FYI – Willie Nelson wrote a book with Turk Pipkin.   The Tao of Willie – a guide to the happiness in your heart..   On the back cover  “Some would call it happiness, but I like to think that what I found is me.  that sounds simple enough, but the truth i, it took quite a while to do it….

If only, belongs in the past, it is past tense,  live each moment like it is your first (cuz it is)…. and   SMILE,      S M I L E,     S  M  I  L  E

Love and Blessings…  today, and always

October memory

October 13

I had such a happy excursion yesterday.  My husband with the two dogs, did some touring around the countryside near home.  It was a simply fantastic day!  What can I say, not much, I’d rather some the pictures with you…

IMG_0015

Even in the last days of its bloom, this flower is an expression of nature’s glory.

IMG_0017

Nature’s colour palette is filled with the richness of the shades that so brilliantly say “autumn”

IMG_0065

Old markers in a newly discovered (to me) historic cemetery beckoned to me from the road, I had to explore.  The older the cemetery, the more serene. With the dazzling sunshine, and dappled shade this one was lovely.

IMG_0026

A tribute of another time, still sits proudly on a marker, its beauty may be faded, but it still exudes pulchritude and charm

IMG_0051

The riot of colour that filled my day had me exhilarated and filled with a joy that was near to bursting.  I love Canada and the four season it offers.

God resides in a prayerful Mind….. Evidence of the “Master’s” creativity was on full display yesterday.  From pictures I saw being posted yesterday on FB
(Facebook) we were not alone in our rediscovery  of the knockout day available to us yesterday.  Every day is filled with new discoveries.

Let me leave you a thanksgiving greeting I got this morning, I’m sorry the graphics did not  copy paste, but the verse is cute. click on pumpkin pie)

“the pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime!”


TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING,
BUT I JUST COULDN’T SLEEP.
I TRIED COUNTING BACKWARDS,
I TRIED COUNTING SHEEP.

THE LEFTOVERS BECKONED –
THE DARK MEAT AND WHITE,
BUT I FOUGHT THE TEMPTATION
WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT.

TOSSING AND TURNING WITH ANTICIPATION,
THE THOUGHT OF A SNACK BECAME INFATUATION.
SO, I RACED TO THE KITCHEN, FLUNG OPEN THE DOOR,
AND GAZED AT THE FRIDGE, FULL OF GOODIES GALORE.
GOBBLED UP
TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
PICKLES AND CARROTS, BEANS AND TOMATOES.

I FELT MYSELF SWELLING SO PLUMP AND SO ROUND,
‘TIL ALL OF A SUDDEN, I ROSE OFF THE GROUND.
I CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING, FLOATING INTO THE SKY,
WITH A MOUTHFUL OF PUDDING AND A HANDFUL OF PIE.
BUT, I MANAGED TO YELL AS I SOARED PAST THE TREES….
HAPPY EATING TO ALL – PASS THE CRANBERRIES, PLEASE.
MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY,
MAY YOUR
TURKEY BE PLUMP.
MAY YOUR POTATOES ‘N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS.
MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!

HAPPY   THANKSGIVING   TO  ALL

Blessings – Matthew 5:1 and 6

Live each day with Excitement

Live each day with Excitement

PL. teaching. Live Each Day With Excitement > Challenge everything with enthusiasm. You will be rewarded with joy and encounter happy occurrences.

PL is a non denominational church, Did you know that? To embody the PL teachings, you do not have to go up into the mountains for hours of meditation, nor fast for many days. Oshieoyasama gives us simple practical and useful ways to learn to live the PL Way.. (You can learn more by contacting one of our ministers today, or myself for contact information in the country you are in) Our website is in the right sidebar.

Life is Art, is the foundation of our faith. Your life is your very own unique work of art. If you cut corners or miss important details, you will not be able to live up to our fullest potential.

Everyone wishes to be happy and lead happy lives. Your environment and the things that happen in front of you are all materials for your self expression. In PL we are taught that with God’s blessings we will be able to freely express ourselves using these materials.

There is only one you.an individual, so unique and special, YOU are the artist. Together, let us live this day with excitement and enthusiasm.

B L E S S I N G S  for a God filled day..

Love and Light

Wednesday’s greeting

Wednesday's greeting

Isn’t this a great quote. I read it once, then a second time, 10 words, well put together. Another way of say “Life is Art” the first PL Precept.
I dearly want you to meet Sensei Fukito Kimura, the minister I told you about in an earlier blog. From PL Holy Land in Tondabayasghi, Osaka,Japan. He found a way to communicate with me even though neither of us spoke the other’s language. No, not through a translator, on a one on one. ( I was in Japan for Rensei training, blog(s) would be back in early August for those of you wanting a re read)

I was so impressed with his sincerity,kindness and overall demeanor I asked Rev. Goto to ask him if I could communicate further with him once back in Canada.  He graciously agreed.  It has been a challenge, but I did manage to ask him to tell me how he became a minister with PL, and why.  He did write, (Rev. Euguene) our minister here in Ottawa) kindly did the translation for me.   Now here dear reader, is where one of my lessons in life, has to be put into practice. Somehow in the getting the file from the church to my computer it got corrupted.  Patience is one of the virtues, I have had to learn and practice, and to do it creatively =^_^=.  (Rev. Eugene is away)

Rev Kimura

Meet Sensei  Fukito Kimura, a young family man dedicated to his craft.  He had not thought of being a minister till well into the last years of his schooling.  Once that decision was taken, he never looked back.  He had a church, but was called back to the Holy Land headquarters to  work there.  He is the Coordinator of Rensei Training.  He derives great joy and sense of reward in what he does.  On the shy side, he at first appears reserved, but when you watch him in action, ensuring all runs smoothly for the many many attendees,  you realize he is focused on what he is doing.  He is living in the moment.  His words when he wrote were gentle and wise.

When I get the translation again, I will post his response in Japanese for those of you who read Japanese, because I believe that it will be a true reflection of Sensei Fukito’s words.  And the English translation.

I know today’s teaching was on the Value of Money and Things…  but I wanted to talk about the value of Friendships and how  a real connection with another person will always be through a sincere desire to reach out and embrace that person with a love that speaks from the “heart” 

Become a peace maker in life, a smile goes a long way, not everyone is lovable, we don’t always succeed at being gracious or kind, but we can all work towards a happier day. It begins with one tiny step at a time.

Emphasize on the inner spiritual energy of love and peace… Blessings all…

PL Spain

PL Spain

A happier, more positive group I have yet to meet, These charmers were a delight to be around. When we were walking with the flags, their enthusiasm and gusto was catching. What better example of Living Life with Good Rhythm.

During the course of a day, new things happen all the time.
Being positive in life, allows for you to flow with the rhythm of the life, flexibly and willingly. Life is Art.

photo -taken by the group from Spain, that is Ana on the far right, she is the coordinator sharing with me.  It was thanks to them that we have the wonderful picture of the Peace Tower I used yesterday

The song is a PL song and my favourite, it is one of the songs we sang as we marched together to the celebrations with the flags.

Share the love everyone.  Love is what make the world go around.  Love is life…. Blessings to you all!

Breaking free

Breaking free

My cough was really getting to me. I stopped what I was doing, and took time to pray. (I pray a lot, I like it, find it refreshing and soul satisfying, yes LOL it can be habit forming) I was giving my cough way too much attention, sure it was hard to ignore, and it was distracting and annoying, but it was mine.
When talking to Rev.Eugene (Sr. Minister PL church) earlier, he did point out that the coughing was nature’s way for the body to rid itself of the “bad” it was having to deal with.  So………… coughing was simply a natural happening in my body right now.  Coughing was a positive towards healing.
Accepting that, and understanding that the act of coughing and all the other “activities” my body was wanting to do ….was “nature’s way” of ridding impurities from my system made it much easier to “go with the flow” (pun intended)

Changing my thinking, changes the vibrational frequency in my “chi” giving my “sick” body less fuel, giving it the message its free to go =^_^=

I’m going to bed and plan to wake up well rested and ready to enjoy a new day.  Good night everyone, I hope your day was rewarding.  I had a great day, and will hit the pillows with a smile and a lot of contentment for a day well lived.

Blessings Be…..
