PL Calendar day 5 (2019)

Start by thinking – this is interesting

Even when you are dealing with a difficult situation, it is important to find something interesting about it.  From there, you will be blessed with wisdom and something new will come out of it.

Thursday moment

 

IMG_1588 Ireland Belfast

A window that captures a moment in time

a moment long-lived, yet, now lost in time

Took a trip to Ireland, for this moment to happen

that was yesterday, this is today.

Today, when I saw the colours,  I thought of Brazil

two places I have never been

Life is “funny” that way

in an instant we can travel the globe

never leaving home,

why, because home is where your heart is.

mine is alive and well, still beating strong,

the window is till in Ireland,

 the moment has passed

but the thoughtful moment of inspiration,

a gift, long to be remembered

Q

past, present, they are all the same, to live in the now, we gather it all, so that today will be an even better day, for one and all.  You are truly loved, now and always.

patience

may 3

Being on the receiving end of two sets of eyes patiently waiting, determined not to let me take a bite without my knowing they are watching, is cute.  And for me it is a visual lesson in patience.

Where some dogs have been known to beg, these two don’t.  They just sit and watch me. I am sure every morsel of food is counted (in a canine way).. do the chopsticks go to my mouth, or  is the piece being redirected to a napkin, that “just could” be their reward for being so patient.

There is a shrimp dish that is cooked with the whole shrimp, that has been lightly battered.  This dish they are particularly aware of, they know I will share the heads and tails with them.  Until I actually  say their names, they will just sit patiently knowing that they will be rewarded.

Other times when I am busy enjoying every little tid bit, I am fascinated to see that my usual dinner mates, have no interest at all, and have curled up to nap.  They instinctively  know, that there will be no sharing.

Do we, pay as much attention to those around us, are we aware of their habits, the different ways they speak or do things, are we flexible in our ability to adjust to the energy around us easily?  Are we considerate of others?  Is it our natural response to the daily encounters that pop us during our day.  Can we put away our “ego” when it is perhaps getting in the way of a sincere exchange.

Sometimes what we say and what we are thinking are not in sync.  This leads to misunderstandings and hurt feelings.

Do you attract, happy or unhappy people in your sphere?  Questions, a lot of questions, I know, but beginning the day with a short meditation/reflection…. is always a positive start to the day.

making friends

As I pondered my life this morning, my Mother in the hospital, cherished friends in far distant lands, others busy with their lives I reflected on the current project I’m working on.

book-cover-started-jan-20-17

This is another of the books I collected out of the throw away box.  It was published under the direction of the Baptist Union of Great Britain and Ireland, The church of England, The church of Scotland,  the  list goes on.  It has maps and plans inside, along with the text of course.  The cover was rather battered, especially I don’t know how long it had been exposed to the elements or where it had been prior to being thrown away.

I’ve used masking tape to protect the center of the cover and I’m working at giving the rest of the cover some strength and I hope character back.

Our lives are lived pretty much like this book.  We are conceived, given birth to, presented to the world, and then……………  who knows where we will go or end up.  Each one of us  has our own  path, destination/goal, and how we achieve or get there.. is our own personal journey.

Facing the possibilities of my Mother’s journey, gives me plenty of time to reflect on my own journey.  Which brings me back to friendships.  Some friends you have known, have carved a place in your heart that will last forever, yet you may never see them again, for their paths have gone in different directions.  Or… the value of the friendship was not balanced, that happens too.

The one person, that is the most important person of all, is yourself.    When I’m working doing art projects, or creating, I’m allowing my self-expression to be seen or heard.  I may be the only one who sees it, but the act of BEING is…. in fact.. making friends with mySELF.

PL Precept #11  Always be with God.

PL Precept # 15   All is a Mirror

GOD is the constant in our lives.  When we are quiet, silent, STILL, we feel and hear from within, not the external machines and noises around us.

PL Precept 20  Live Maintaining Equilibrium between mind and matter
