When I keyed in the word Thanksgiving, my screen was instantly filled with pictures of food,  Very delicious tempting foods, from salads, veggie dishes to main dishes.  But I was looking for more. Even the crock pot BBQ Beer pulled chicken with cheddar corn popovers, tho’ yummy, was passed on.

crockpot BBQ Beer pulled chicken Thanksgiving I know is about gathering with friends and family to enjoy the bounty of a good fall harvest.  Often it is the last big feast before the holidays in December.

For members of PL (Perfect Liberty)  we celebrate Thanksgiving  every 21st of the month. 12 months of the year.   Why .. because it is an important reminder that we should always be thankful and grateful for the life we are living.  I came across a prayer the other day I would like to share part of it with you.

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers,

But to be fearless in facing them.

Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, 

But for the heart to conquer it.

Let me not look for allies in life’s battlefield

But to my own strength.

I am grateful every day for my friends, I count each and everyone of you as a friend.  I am truly blessed.  May the Universe grant you your prayers, this day and always.  Blessings …

Where are your thoughts today. When the days past have been busy and full, have you made time for you.  Have you made time to say THANK YOU for all you’ve received so far, yes whether for the challenges or the joys.  Does your heart rejoice at the end of the day?

When I first began a life of teaching and service I was a student of life, many decades later, I am constantly learning and relearning lessons that I thought I had learned already.  However, when I reflect on my most inner feelings, or when my emotions are being rendered senseless with constant chatter from my tattle telling mind, I realize that I’ve been forgetting that I am the captain of my ship.  Whatever the circumstance, it was through my choices over time that I am currently in the puddle I’m in.  Sigh, the quotes and sayings that are posted all over social media, and used in my blog and others,  are great, but reading them and acknowledging the truth of them isn’t enough.

hugs-words

We have to live the words we believe in, we have to acknowledge and give thanks to  the Universe for the learning we are acquiring. Live and learn brothers and sisters,this is life, this is living.  Express and live with full Makoto (sincerity)  Reach out and say thank you today when you can, even for minor matters, smile from the heart and have a blessed day.

Healing thoughts and prayers requested

polar bear

There are times when we feel that we are alone, we never are.  It is only that we are so consumed with pain and suffering, that the world around us seems very far away.

At times we seek solitude simply so we can quiet our minds and pray.  We close our eyes and search for the calm within. Pain, whether chronic or ongoing, is such a challenge to bear. Energy levels drop so rapidly when we are focused on dealing with the discomforts we face, to some it is on a daily basis.  There are those who need our prayers today,  when we pray, please add the brothers and sisters whose names we may not know, but who we do know suffer and need a lift from our prayers.

Together in silent prayer, we are a strong force, and healing energy will find its way to those who need it today.  The Universe is always listening/aware, through prayer – dedication and faith we forge ahead to bridge the challenges we face.  We live the moment and we move on.

Tomorrow will be another day, with the love of all who pray today, know that we will all  be blessed, For we will have prayed together, to bring strength and comfort to those in need this day.  As you sit quietly I lay hands on all who need the special touch today.  Feel the warmth of my hands on your shoulders as I take in and share in your discomfort.  You are never alone.  You may not see me physically but I am there. All who  pray with me, surround you with healing thoughts.  Feel the love around you, let it surround you, be in the moment NOW. 

Thank you everyone for sharing in this moment of prayer

A Testimony from Spain

This is the” voice” of a PL member in Spain,  I have left her words her own, I hope it touches you as much as it touched me to read what she has to day.  Today at church, I talked of appreciation, and now this evening I have her email, that reaffirms to me how valuable living in Perfect Liberty is.

 I entered in PL the 24th of October of 2009, thanks to a fellow worker and great friend Maria del Carmen Larios, who had returned to Spain her country after 15 years in Argentina. I net Maria del Carmen because she gave me classes of how develop better my business in Madrid, every class I observed her the way she moves and talks and how she acts doing things very different from the others, with a full philosophy of attitude, with love, generosity, being useful to the others  never waiting anything back from others. 

That power, that big example called totally my attention, besides other leaders from our company never taught us so big and so splendid, they always expect something back from us.   She always told us to be better to the society, taking a message of hope, harmony, well-being and she always taught us that everything is possible if it is done with “Art”.

I remember that many afternoons I asked her about her philosophy of life and talk about PL for hours, she said to me that it was thanks to the practice of a Japanese religion, call PL.

I astonished myself reading the prayers book and the newspapers she showed me those days. She started to share with me the PL lessons and principles.    Thanks to PL I have been able to totally understand, experience  the FAITH, because I come from a catholic religious education  and even I always have faith I could not understand it the way I do it now.

 After some months Maria del Carmen started to spread the PL religion with other colleagues and we all love it, she has done it so strongly and with so much affection that we all have began to have a better life practicing this religion.  We meet once a week in our office to pray and to receive knowledge of PL. Maria del Carmen is a big example and she shares her art with us.

Thanks to PL I am much happier in life, I always love life but during the last 3 years I got divorced and it was hard to handle because my divorce has being traumatic, long process and painful.   My 8 years old son is also a PL member  and thanks to PL we are going through this process with love and hope. Both of us feel the Oshieoya-sama blessings every day.

 I have being  in Japan this summer for the Rensei and it has being the more extraordinary experience I have ever had in life.  I have no words to explain the experience but definitively every member of PL should have the dream and bless of being once there. It has being the first time in PL history that a caravan of 6 Spanish people go to Seichi Japan.  These has being possible thanks to Maria del Carmen´s and Sensei Mizunoe blessings and effort.  Thank you to all members of PL for your prayers and well doing.

Thank you Ana for sharing your “heart” with us.  Thank Maria and say hello to everyone in Spain for us.  I hope to get to see you in the new year.
