voici le moment

au fond de moi, j’en suis certaine

at this moment

I am certain

from deep within

my spirits stirs

I feel the warmth

of recognition

the comfort of knowing

a new day has begun

somewhere near

the sun is bright

even tho’

I am here in the night

God is everywhere

day and night

we are ONE

Kahlil Gibran

In this little treasure of a book I found yesterday, is a quote .. I had not seen this one before from one of Kahlil Gibran’s writings;.

You pray in your distress and in your need;  would that you might pray also in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance… Kahlil Gibran

PL Precept # 11  Always be with God

Ayez une foi sincere en Dieu

unseen doorways

I remember showing you these pictures some time ago.  They are vehicles to open spiritual doorways to our inner consciousness.  Each one has it’s very own tone, and sound vibration.

You can visit this location to hear some of the songs that a singing bowl or lid will make.

Tibetan singing bowl meditation

Usually on Thursdays, I join in, on Thursday Doors, today, I wanted to introduce you to another doorway, and encourage you, should the interest be there, to explore the possibilities offered by this wonderful world of sound.

PL Precept #12   Everything has a way according to its name

PL Precept # 7   Everything exists in Relativity

Sometimes in life, we have to stop.. close our eyes and listen.  Words can mean so many things, and how they are read, and who reads them, makes a world of difference.

When we close our eyes and listen only to the sounds… our breathing slows down, our mind begins to follow the sound,  we travel to a place deep within, a place that connects to GOD.

A student once said to me, “you tell me that happiness begins with me,  intellectually I agree, but the reality is I don’t know how to begin”.  It is easy to talk about the Precepts and Principles of PL,( Perfect Liberty), they are all so “simple” when stated, but they are not as easily followed as one would imagine,  When someone says relax, we just can’t flick a switch and our bodies will relax.

Like the shadows on the fence the “art” of the moment, is there and if we pause in our day, we will see it, return in another half hour, that moment and play of shadows will no longer be there,.

Think on the number of times, your friend, mate,spouse, child, asks you for something, and you have replied with “just a second,” “wait, I’m busy” or I can’t right now, maybe later.  We all do it, it is so easy to simply excuse ourselves from the moment because we are busy, mentally in another space.

Sometimes, the moment passes, and there is no repercussion, it simply gets lost.  Other times, it could have been a  life changing moment.  We will never know, we let it pass, we made a choice, and come what may, we had a part in that “moment” in time.

in prayer

When we make time in our lives for prayer, we are making time for GOD/TAO/Nature/Divine within ourselves.  To understand and learn more about ourselves, we have to spend time with our “selves”  In PL (Perfect Liberty) we are always available to “listen” and to help YOU sort out the complicated challenges that come your way.  It really happens to everyone, not just you, you are never alone, although at times, it might feel that you are.

PL Precept # 1  – Life is Art

Art doesn’t just happen, everyday we live is an expression of our creativity.  Our TRUST and FAITH in GOD is what will see us through troubled times.

in 2013 the #6 lesson was – A change of Heart can turn the Tide –  No matter what the situation you can’t change others.  The only thing you have control over is how you accept things, and deal with them.

PL Precept # 19

Each moment is a turning point

stop and …

gaze on my face

see the heavens

far off in space

somewhere in the debris

is a story of days gone by

my soul is free

with God I am ONE

what you see

before you

is physical evidence

of a past

when we live

in the present

we are alive and free

to BE

for our home is carried

in our heart

I am….. now

forever…. and….. always

PL Precept # 2   To live is to express One’s Self

giving thanks

a pile of wood you say

more a work of art

I’d say

look at the array of colour

the texture and the pattern

of each and every

piece

come winter

someone will find

comfort and warmth

to bring peace

and sanctuary

on a cold winters day

on this 21st

day of August

thanksgiving day

for those of us

who walk the PL “way”

I give thanks

and pray

with gratitude

in appreciation

for all that comes

my way.
