I sit high when driving, we have a truck.  I as struck by the vegetation and rooftops as I travelled how 43, going east.

It was a beautiful day as you can see.  The miles slipped silently by as I rode along taking in the views.  It was a “me” day.  A day to allow my thoughts to come and go, my only objective to watch the road, and take in the beauty around me.

Farmland as far as the eye could see.  Small villages, and towns, expanse of fields waiting for harvest.  Rural Ontario. (250km)  Lots of time to entertain my thoughts.

PL Precept # 15  All is a Mirror    –  I sought tranquility and peaceful surrounding.  The Universe granted my wish.  I enjoyed conversation and friendship along the way, then back in the truck  as I continued on my way………….. the steady hum of the tires and visual delights as Nature provided the beginning colours of her  fall palette.

Just before the final stretch, I stopped for fresh produce and discovered a new fruit.  Ground cherries.  physalis longifolia

Enjoy each new day, give thanks for the opportunities that come your way.  Life is good.

A day spent with and in Nature, alone, in meditation and quiet

is a special day indeed!

To achieve a quiet heart, so that we can live in greater harmony with the world around us, takes an effort.  In life, when we are balanced, grounded, we are capable of better decisions, and more effective results to our actions.

If we are active, when we should be at rest, then when it is time to act, we are often ill prepared.  We can miss opportunities that had we been rested and ready, would have been easy to deal with.

For the last many days I have been living with a sinus infection.  Ok it is not the end of the world, however, when the symptoms gang up on me, I really do find myself leaning towards,a complaining mind. (that is not the right way/direction to go)

Like a hamster in a cage, running, running on my wheel, running and getting nowhere.  After chasing around looking for a clinic that was open today, I finally gave up and came home.  I will take the time to reflect on just why this physical annoyance is giving me grief.

It is said, that the “superior” person, first achieves quiet heart, and then acts.   Hmmmmp I have some serious winding down to do, 1st step, when my body says rest, I need to listen.

PL Precept #17  Grasp what is most essential

a quiet walk

IMG_20151030_172305791

learning to walk with God

to be aware that every step you take

every movement you make

any direction you  decide to follow

will bring you closer to your goal

what goal? maybe you are not aware

that you even have one

3da743e11b42f91982bd1e754dcc5bcf

but somewhere, buried deep

in the recesses of your inner Being

there is a solid reason

why, even in the crowded streets

or busy by ways

you feel a longing, even a need

at times, for a quiet moment,

a time where you say, please..

give me one moment to myself

6eff8fdff44b538fd2eb4e0292da41ca

we must sincerely apply our hearts to understanding

that God is the air we breathe, the life the flows within our veins

no matter you disbelieve, you are alive,

therefore you ARE..

Accepting and nurturing the person you ARE

that is a challenge we face

Till from this earth we part, with just a trace

of a memory by those who walked along

beside or with us on our journey

eed52519f744e1857f1c2291a9009d38

the day will come

when our days and nights become one

we will ride the mighty dragon

far into the Universe

our quiet walk

will have begun

Hydrating – hydratant

ZqF6Ryr

I, am but a thought in your mind

I am, are two words we use a lot

I’m so busy, I am late, I am not feeling well, I am hot

when do we stop

and think about exactly who/what is I

in the I am,

do we live our lives out of a can

are we ready made

we eat fast foods, and drive in cars

is the life we live really ours

7af4daf9-b908-4cb7-992d-3b9441173fec

I challenge YOU today

to hydrate your mind, stop what you are doing

to take 60 seconds, 1 minute

for each picture. allowing the quiet of your mind

to take in what you see

Mog96N6

feel the sound, and the pull of the waves

listen to the sound of silence in the world around

feel the stillness that begins to unfold

your breathing will automatically  be deeper,

your shoulders will relax

aQfV63W

each drop that falls

creates a ripples

… that ripple … slowly …spreads out

wrapping you in the sunshine

that warms and calms your busy mind

HSyBOSb

60 seconds on each picture…… 60 seconds! …… if you took the challenge,

you just hydrated your mind with a short meditation  ……how hard was that!

save this page…… use it again ….. whenever you need to unwind…… recharge

send it to a friend …….   share the quiet …….

know when you say   “: I am ”  …… you really are!

into the mist

Xsa on the beach_003

So tired, I found a place to lay my head

slowly I felt the tension  ease away

the world was quiet, yes there were sounds

but somehow, I knew that they were not part of me

I was safe in my space, this warm welcoming embrace

mist 1 flickr

I am set adrift

like the quiet days at the cottage

when I could paddle on the lake while the mist still danced

along the water and the soft sounds of nature

filled my head with joys of solitude

when I was ONE with nature

and my heart, body and soul

found peace

mist 2

on warm summer days I made my way

through the trees, to the cottage on the cliff

the sun would shine through the trees,

the rough path to get there

always familiar to my feet

I’d climbed it since my youth

now, love and faith

draws me home

ahead there is a light

I know my loved ones wait for me there

its been a good life

can you hear me God

I’m coming home

Quiet day…

outer space

Some days

there is no other way

to enjoy the waking hours of the day

but to the let mind play

and have its own way

African inland -chris hadfield

With God’s grace

I’m going to slow my pace

and enjoy my space

it is with the utmost sincerity

that I offer you my heartfelt  thanks

for sharing this moment with me

it might be a challenge,

but I am determined that today

will be a quiet day
