Facebook has a habit of popping the past at you. This morning, I found this on my FB page. I wondered what on earth !! then I read the notation at the bottom, they had provided that too.
Do you recall what you did 6 years ago? And the next question, Do you really want to know?
Curious, that’s all.
Personally I care more about what I’m doing now and how I live now, PL Precept # 16 All things progress and Develop. Every moment counts, I love the experience of living. The past.. yes it was good at the time, but the reality is, I don’t even know where Mr. Spud is today, what happened to him. OH and the spuds, were they significant? who knows, that was then, this is now.
Enjoy the day everyone!
It is full of such potential and possibilities
PL Precept #21 Live in Perfect Liberty
Namaste – Oyashikiri
Frozen in Time – sculpted out of wire,apoxie sculpt and fabric this garden fairy likes her crystals, she carries them with her so that the sun and day light will catch and reflect prisms of colour all around her. The stump she stands on was part of a tree she used to love for the shade it provided on the hot summer days. She came inside one year, to grace the mantel, to this day she is still there. There is a window there, and during the bright winter days, when the sun comes shining through … her garland dances sending a rainbow of colour through the room.
Do we stand still in life, or do we constantly want to be on the move? Lately I’ve been forced to spend more time.. standing still… LOL or should I say, having a lie down =^_^=
Like the garden fairy with her crystals, when the dust gathers on her beads, the rainbow of colours is less dazzling. When she was outside, Mother Nature, bathed her in spring, summer and fall with showers, pelting rains and blew soft whispers of breeze through her strand of crystals.
When we stop and allow the world around us to “really be seen” It is surprising what we “see” and realize about where we are in life, and how we are coping with the realities.
Have the courage to really look at where you are, have you been standing still? Is dust gathering on “your crystals”
Prayer is our garland of light, the Universe speaks to us everyday, and in many ways. It is in mindfulness that we
hear and see the Divine connection.
Blessings everyone, may the light of life shine brightly on you today.and always.
From another era, she walks through the garden, silently adjusting her steps to better manouver the changing landscapes from season to season. This maiden was built using chicken wire for the frame (I built out the skirt so that it would give her better balance. Her outfit is made out of material that has been soaked in Paverpol, I was not using Powertex at the time.of her “birthday” both of these products have websites that will give you the full description of their properties. Her face and under body is from Apoxie Sculpt, this is a product from a company called Aves. It is permanent, self hardening and waterproof.
Paverpol and Powertex are liquid hardeners, environmentally friendly, water based alternatives to polyester. The Silent Maiden has been outside in the garden for many years now and she still looks good. Some of her “friends” have not weathered as well. Same is true in life. Some of us weather better than others. =^_^=
May I? this is from the book The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupery 1900 – 1944
“Speaking to the Little Prince about love and life, the Fox says: And now here is my secret, a very simple secret, it is only with the heart that one can see rightly: What is essential is invisible to the eye. “
From the teachings of Buddha..
What is the meaning of the saying ” A cupful of water is more than the water of an ocean?” This is the answer “A cupful of water given in a pure and compassionate spirit to one’s parents or to a sick person has an eternal merit, but the water of an ocean will some day come to an end.
The Universe LOVES YOU…..
Note the ongoing problems with the web provider means that I am looking for alternatives, please stay tuned.
I once was wild about working with gourds. I built or created a bird house with one. It hung from a tree in the back garden. with time and weather it fell and the neck broke off. For some reason I was loath to just throw it away. The main body was rehung, but I kept the neck saving it till I could get back to it. I know that each and every other artist out there has done this in some way, the part of a song that you just can’t finish or get that special riff for. I moved this broken piece of gourd from one place in my work space to another.
Finally this past spring, it was just what I needed to try a new product with.
Once I had made up my mind, things just began to happen.
I can turn it in different directions, and each side gives me a different “story” “view”.. I had no idea what it was, or what to do with it. but.. the finished product made me smile and made me happy. It was a visual tactile expression I needed to express at that time! No more no less.
There is a teaching in PL. Once you make up your mind, things will happen. Once you decide you are going to do something, your enthusiasm and focus (mindfulness) will bring forth results. God/Universe will give you aid when you need it most.
Living life as Art, means, go with the flow, create and express yourself, the challenges in life are there to allow us to grow and stretch our talents. God/TAO is everywhere, and in all things. Always. Strive to live in Perfect Liberty (PL)
