Brazil on a foggy day *
My heart and prayers go out today to the readers who are presently suffering tragedy and sorrow, to the friends who are facing challenges that required a lot of inner strength. Those of us who today have extra energy and love to share, please, let us put our hands together in prayer and silently send Oyashikiri to our brothers and sisters out there.
The Tao – Over and over, sages have told us that the world is but a dream, and when one wakes on a foggy morning, with mists obscuring hills and valleys, we might even agree with them. Reality can often be phantasmagoria. The world is a dream from which there is no escaping.
Tough times never last, but tough people do – Robert H. Schuller

Upon awakening, decide to do something – anything – that will improve the quality of life for someone. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
I love each and everyone of you with all my heart. I have been so blessed to be able to share this time with you. If you have something to do today, do it with joy and enthusiasm.
Namaste – Oyashikiri

I’ve found myself wanting to be back in Japan, even though I was surrounded by people there were nooks and crannies and quiet places where the serenity of the moment was overwhelming. You literally walked away your stress, or day to day hum drum thoughts that weighed you down when your busy mind started to natter.
The goal in PL is to strive for, and achieve, World Peace.
To attain such a goal, we have to begin with our “Selves”
No one can change us, we alone can do that. I think lately I’ve let the every day world “pull my chain” or interfere too much with my daily meditations. Yesterday’s teaching on the PL calendar was. Let’s choose to use words that are kind, polite and courteous. Kind words will bring about a kind heart. BEAUTIFUL WORDS MAKE FOR A BEAUTIFUL SOUL
That is what resonates with me today. today’s teaching is Act with Enthusiasm.. If you put your whole heart into whatever you do, you will be able to appreciate any task at hand.take initiative in tackling your work or tasks.
Good thoughts to start the day with don’t you think.
Robert H. Schuller wrote a spiritual autobiography that he called Prayer – My Soul’s Adventure with God –
He wrote.. (Psalm 51:10-12)
Create in me a clean heart, O God.
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from yolur presence
And do not take your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous spirit.
Blessing everyone, be God inspired today!
