be calm, be kind

Hesitating to share our true feelings hurts not only ourselves, but others.  While respecting the other person’s feelings, say what you need to say.

the art of nothing

IMG_154711.11

While waiting for the paint to dry, I decided to take a picture, of my nothing page.  I do a lot of nothing, that is what speaks to me the most.

I will do a whole book of pages, when the mood strikes, of “nothing” art.  When I am done, I will have my very own book of “Nothing” for the month of December 2018  I ask you, What will you do for yourself, to remind you of this coming month of December.

Our thought for today (PL calendar, day 11) was to be thankful for who we are…

Tomorrow, PL Day Calendar day 12 –  Carry out what you believe in

Once you have prepared everything to the best of your ability, seize any opportunity that comes your way and take action without hesitation.  Express yourself to the fullest.


I learned a long time ago, that “nothing”was not always easy to express.  I used to call it abstract art, or expressions.  To call it art, to some was stretching it.  You dear friends, who have been on this journey with me, know that this is not the first time, you hear me speak of “nothing”   If you recall I  took pictures one summer of nothing.

All this to say, if it feels right, and it is to be your very own, create your memory your way. A picture, a doodle, story, whatever method choose to for your expression, if done with Makoto (sincerity of intention) it will be great.  There are no failures, only experiences.

Moments

IMG_0908

good morning, bom dia, buen dia    The moment you notice is the best timing

El momento en que perciba es la oportunidad

A chance esta no momento em que e percebe

I am the little yellow flower in the picture above.  I was out being spoiled with another special outing.  One of my  dearest friends had arranged with me weeks ago, for us to celebrate yesterday.  Celebrate we did.  It was a full day of shopping and exploring, ending with a fabulous dinner at the Mandarin, (Asian buffet)

Yesterday, Eartha drove, she was my hostess with the mostess.  Then last night as I lay basking in the events of the day, I imagined this picture, and  my being the yellow flower, surrounded by people, events with the world going on all around me. I had a feeling that I  had missed something, and it nagged me.  So much so that this morning, I sat down to meditate on “it”

The rest of todays calendar message says…  Procrastinating will only weigh you down.  The best time to do something is when you notice it.  You will feel lighter both physically and spiritually.

Whatever is niggling at me, took place yesterday, obviously I was too surrounded by outside energies and activities.  It was a special day, and thanks to Eartha sneaking in a surprise on me, I have a memento of our time, that I am able to put on the fridge (a picture of us that the Mandarin presents to us in the form of a magnet)   A cherished souvenir!

Sometimes in life, we are so busy living, we miss something else, that moment is gone, so begin TODAY with Makoto (sincerity and focus).

Bom dia, bonjour, allo, there is no worries that there will be few hours in my day.  I have plenty  hours stretching out before me, no excuses to not getting more work done in the clearing up, cleaning out of my physical spaces.

Btw I have not cropped or changed the pictures, I am using them just the say my cousin Brian sent them to me.  He and Jon are honeymooning, I get to reap the rewards of their wonderful pictures  they travel from place to place.  There is something to be said of the arm-chair traveller, no packing, no jostling at busy airports, no line ups, etc.. At some time or other we have all been there.

Oh dear I am going to have to look at just what is I that box on the top shelf.  I am sure you have all had that experience too. Life is full of these little “treats”  reminder to self.. Find the happy in all that you do, to change direction I thought I would go make the bed, There I discovered a big lump !

he graciously got himself up and went somewhere else to have his lie in.  Very considerate.

It is now going on seven, I have been successful in removing some of the clutter, but fear not, there is still more for me to do once I take this lot away.  happy finding I found where I had put my sloth stamps away.

PL Principle #1  I will live paying careful attention, putting Makoto into all I say and do (sincerity)

PL Principle #3  I will live with a mind of appreciation towards others and things

To members of the PL community, tomorrow is the 11th, we will be celebrating Ancestors Day, service will be at 10 a.m.

Have a great day everyone, if your day is almost over.  I trust it was a good one for you.

I pray for the happiness and well BEing of all.  We are all ONE.

then now???? gone?

avatars that were in a virtual world.  why.  to be there to respond to needs of the community that expressed interest in learning more about living the PL way.  I have come to realize that there are not that many places one can go, where it is drama/stress free.

Unfortunately these young men were assigned back to Japan the dream of exploring a new frontier went with them.

Unable at the time to get in to explore, and get to know more of the creative spirits inworld, I had to bench my idea of expanding the church philosophy via a venue that spans world wide.

The world is now full of gamers, I doubt I could count all the platforms.  Hours are spent each day on one platform or another, whether in war games, sci fi, or social media.  I noted on the telly the other day that there is even a series that is a take off on the alternate realities.(worlds)  Many people are deciding that they prefer the virtual worlds, where they can select and change their worlds including meeting more people who share in their “vision” of what living in a world should be like.

Technology allows us to do a lot of things we couldn’t do in years gone by, however, what remains constant is “change” in the world we live in and the ones we gravitate towards.

We are never dissociate ourselves from the ONENESS of the UNIVERSE from that we cannot hide or escape   Where ever you go, in any dimension, you will always be you.  We cannot escape our “selves”  we can’t even hide.. we can try to avoid or ignore, but always what IS will BE

Forever is today.

What ever you do, where ever you are. BE present.  There will always be opportunities to explore, be yourself, in whatever “role” you play or take on for that day.

The young ministers have been given different assignments, both are now married and in totally new environments, yet they will always be themselves, all past experiences will be part and parcel of the men they are today,

When we live with pure intentions, there are not regrets the lessons we learn bring wisdom in following years.

PL Precept 2  TO LIVE IS TO EXPRESS ONE’S SELF

Oyahshikiri

 

Beauty is genuine

 

IMG_0576_editedGood day to everyone… Bom Dia!!

We all have that friend who can walk into a room bringing the warmth of the sun and the breeze of a tropical day just by smiling.  Caring, and  thoughtful, the energy is a bright light around her, and sweeps the cares away.

Of course not… not forever, but when that friend comes to share it is a genuine, one on one.

Perfect Liberty calendar, day 16

Don’t hold anything back;  Give it your All

Always approach things with full enthusiasm and energy.  Then, things will develop in a new direction.

When we live our lives with genuine feeling,  commitment, (Makoto) it is the smile that shares with the world.  Others around you feel good, and in turn, radiate, and pass it on.

Love is genuine, it cannot be defined, contained, or captured, it simply IS.  Love is life, death and everything in between.  Smile today and pass it on.

Take ordinary and turn it into extraordinary and sensational.

what was, now is

Sometimes we open a door, and we are hit with an unexpected view.  One we had no control over, but we’re now faced with the “What the ?!?!?!”

The camera of course was the first thought, take pictures, details, catch it before it is touched or anyone comes.   Then talk to the workers, who are pretending not to be aware of your actions.

Keep calm, ask for an explanation.  PL Precept #4 Being annoyed limits your expression.

Listen with intent.  Pay careful attention to what is said.  Appreciate, and remember to say Thank YOU.

Then return to your office, make notes, and then  # 1. call the city,   #2 call the owner of the property who the workers are working with.  Being polite, and asking for answers and suggestions to the problem will usually inspire others to be helpful.

PL Precept #5  One’s self is lost by being emotional

Sincerity, faith and trust … are important ingredients to a life that is “balanced”

I’m not saying it is always easy, but they become part of your daily responses to opportunities when they are practiced on a regular basis.

Blessings of the day to each and everyone of you.  May much happiness shine on you day from morning to night.

Oyashikiri

be thankful
