Good Morning! It is after seven and it is dark outside. Groan. The shorter days have arrived. My internal clock still wants to wake up and get up and going much earlier. Thankfully my sleeping buddies are content to snuggle down and stay where it is nice and warm.

This picture is out of focus. I’m still getting used to my new camera… but what I was trying for.. you can see, are the drops.

will work on the macro -^_^=

The Virgo in me .. said… “you can’t use that, its out of focus” but the “lunar” part of me.. said “go for it” its the precious water droplets you want to show.. do it!” =^_^= the day was bright, the temperature was getting warmer, et voila… water droplets on some of the berries. The moment was perfect.. lol my shot wasn’t.

Lesson. Just because you want to do something, doesn’t mean you get to do it, or that if you do, it will come out the way you would like it to. That said, I had fun trying out my new camera, enjoyed the sun on my face, the slight breeze that rustled the leaves… AND… bonus, all kinds of birds, singing and dancing overhead as they explored from one branch to another.

I also met a fellow walker and her dog Scout. She also told me of the activities of the coyotes in the woods. A reminder that if there with the dogs, I will have to be vigilant and watchful.

A cheerful smile and expression makes everyone around you happy. When you do everything with a smile, not only you but the people around you will feel good. Always remember to put on a happy face.

It is important to be assertive, but maintaining harmony is just as important. Say what is on your mind clearly, but don’t be overly attached to your views. Respect the points of view of others and always seek to find a happy medium.

Pl Precept # 15   All is a Mirror

My son called me a short while back, and asked me if I’d ever heard of Alan Watts. He was very serious about it, and I was totally surprised by his question.  In my mind, everyone knew Alan Watts (British philosopher best known for his interpretations and interest in Eastern philosophy)

I had learned a lot from Alan Watts, he had been one of my favourite authors, his words spoke to me, a young Taoist living in Canada where my thoughts and ways were so foreign to most around me.  Alan introduced and popularised Eastern philosophy by his writing and teachings  now I see that his lectures and talks have been transposed and are available on YouTube.  The wonders of the modern world.

For anyone interested, this is the official Alan Watts web page  Alan Watts.com

He was prolific as a writer, and speaker. One of the first to interpret Eastern wisdom for a Western Audience.  With our Church of Perfect Liberty here in Canada, at times this is how I sometimes feel, when I try to introduce and explain, that our church is a philosophy and way of life.

My son renewed my determination to work faithfully and diligently every day to bring the PL Way to North America.  World Peace is so so important to our well-being as inhabitants of this planet.

The PL teachings help us to live in a way that will encourage and help us, live a happy and peaceful, balanced life, this will radiate out from us… bringing more love and acceptance of our unique and diversified personalities and cultures, when we know and show respect, we ourselves, grow and gain from new beginnings..

We are all ONE –

know love, show love, be love.. nurture and exist in a peaceful world

Daydreams

6d4857cc0cfddfaff07e01c1169ddebcYesterday was the first of the month.

On the first day of every month, in PL (Perfect Liberty) we gather at the church for a ceremony that reaffirms our dedication to World Peace.  We pray for World Peace, we pray that we will continue to live in a manner that will  lead us to our goal and encourage us to live the PL Way. The ceremony doesn’t last long, I’m now familiar with it, and find that I am energized as the “officiant” speaks the words, I am drawn into the purpose of the process. I become part of the ceremony, in a way that is like a daydream.  I am enveloped in the essence of “Spirit”.

Daydreams are important in life.  One that  is inspired by spiritual thought/teachings is even more rewarding and fulfilling.  There is a lot of strife in the world, drama and jarring moments.  For our own peace of mind, and well being, it is important to dedicate time to inner peace.

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

PL Precept # 3 – God appears through One’s Self.

Maturation

Maturation

Soon to be delicious semi sweet cherries, full of healthy juice and fibers, in life, our learning cycles are much like the cycle of a fruit tree. PL teaching for day 10 –  Your Enthusiasm Can Lead to Opportunities. – Chances don’t just fall into our laps. They come to us when we are putting our full effort into something.
The cherries are from our garden, you can see the various stages of growth along the branches. If only we could view our own progress as we balance our day to day activities.what would we see.  Would we see the various stages of  growth in our journey to maturity? In nature, the tree has a purpose, each stage it goes through is committed to the end results. In PL the teachings guide us in living in a manner that brings enthusiasm into our actions, leading us towards a more productive and fruitful existence. Everything we do in life is of value, be open to new opportunities.  Thank you for sharing this moment with me.
