domingo, segunda feira

water colour 3.30

Sunday Monday – Happy start of the week everyone….

Bom dia…thought to start the week off with some colour.  this was a water-colour I started, it has advanced several steps since the picture, but.. that was the beginning or part of it anyway.  Blending, and marrying of different colours, adding texture, and different strokes applied with changing the brush. Sometimes it works, sometimes it is a surprise.

Life is Art, (PL Precept #1) how we decide on what steps we will take, to address challenges/opportunities, will dictate the outcome.  We can either accept what we “see” or take creative measures to embellish or completely change what “was”

PL Calendar -day 2- Be Forever Young and Seek New Challenges

The world is constantly in motion and never rests.  Keep your senses sharp and be ready to adapt to the ever-changing world.

Chop Suey -Saturday

Listening intently, even tho’ the message could be one of great value, if you do  not understand the language, you can only watch and listen to the words being spoken and assimilate what you can.  This was my first time to experience such a moment,  My first time in a foreign country where the primary language was totally foreign to my ears.  One of the other participants when we talked of this, said, ” what we need to do is just drink in the essence, and the ambiance of being here”.

The greatest lessons from my last trip to Japan, were the ones where I learned about myself, how I cope, and that I managed through all the various challenges to come away with heartfelt connection to the country and the people there.

It is about covering the distance between me, myself and I and my surroundings.  It didn’t matter really what country I was in, or who was there. What mattered was that I was alive, I was taking in new visual and auditory information, and my taste buds were experiencing new and wonderful delicacies.

It all seems subtle at the time, because you are living it, 100% the world is vibrating with newness.  It is the same sky, but … no… it’s not…. you are drinking water, eating food, but …nothing is the same. Things you never thought you could do…ie. enjoy their bathing customs, by the time I left, it was all so natural and part of my day.  You assimilate, you simply live in a mindful state.  If  I had gone there thinking of doing that, I doubt it would have happened

Life is Art…………………. in nature, when one goes with the flow and allows life to happen,  the results are often extraordinary.  when we try to structure every second of our day, we go against the natural ebb and flow of the world around us.

Is it the joy you take in gathering supplies to make colorful decorations that will please the the eye and delight the senses?  Small gifts for friends, or just to brighten your home.

 As the color titillates our awakening senses, we are open to new adventures   Where ever we are when the leaves start to change, we feel it in the air.  Our appreciation of life is aroused and we find ourselves more open to changes, in fact, our creative juices start to bubble with ideas that want expression.

This picture evokes the desire to explore, to walk down this sun filled path, to smell the autumn leaves as they progress through their cycle of change.  You know that the photographer who took this picture, felt the sun and heard the birds and wildlife that surround her/him. They managed to capture the moment beautifully.  If you listen closely you’ll hear the rustle of the leaves as a gentle breeze makes its way through the spectrum of fall colored foliage.

Life is to be enjoyed,  Thanksgiving is a time to express and give thanks for the bounty we receive in life, In Perfect Liberty, (PL) we give thanks each month for the many blessings in our lives.  We do so on the 21 st . of each month.  

Faith grows not only through intellectual understanding but also through actively participating in life, the PL WAY.
