PL Precept #18  Each moment is a turning point

PL Precept #20  Live maintaining equilibrium between mind and matter

sometimes in dreams

To achieve a quiet heart, so that we can live in greater harmony with the world around us, takes an effort.  In life, when we are balanced, grounded, we are capable of better decisions, and more effective results to our actions.

If we are active, when we should be at rest, then when it is time to act, we are often ill prepared.  We can miss opportunities that had we been rested and ready, would have been easy to deal with.

For the last many days I have been living with a sinus infection.  Ok it is not the end of the world, however, when the symptoms gang up on me, I really do find myself leaning towards,a complaining mind. (that is not the right way/direction to go)

Like a hamster in a cage, running, running on my wheel, running and getting nowhere.  After chasing around looking for a clinic that was open today, I finally gave up and came home.  I will take the time to reflect on just why this physical annoyance is giving me grief.

It is said, that the “superior” person, first achieves quiet heart, and then acts.   Hmmmmp I have some serious winding down to do, 1st step, when my body says rest, I need to listen.

PL Precept # 18  Each moment is a turning Point

PL Precept #17  Grasp what is most essential

missing – 1 gym bag

PL Principle # 6    I will not be stubborn, being captured by my own thoughts.

For weeks even months I have talked of getting back to the gym.  Always there was a reason why I just couldn’t get there. Now with the sun shining into my office, and a day facing me with my feeling blah and ho hum, I thought, I’ll go to the gym after my morning meditations etc.  The Virgo/goat that I am, I wanted to organize.  Couldn’t find my gym bag, I looked and just couldn’t find it.  Husband to the rescue, he came and looked with me, wandered down the hall and came back, “its in your office, you can’t miss it”

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

“How did it get in there, that isn’t where I usually keep it?” said I with a bit of the morning

surliness.  Wise husband, quietly says he doesn’t know and returns to his morning activities.

PL Principle #10  I will live in true harmony with my spouse.

I come into my office and there it is sitting in the corner waiting to be found again.

PL Principle # 2        I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather.  Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.

punching bag

Are you  someone who goes to a gym…. have you ever considered working out with a punching bag.  The jabbing, kicking and punching gives an immensely powerful take no prisoners feeling, and it also helps with weight loss, co-ordination and strengthening.   Great for sharpening reflexes too.  Find someone to show you the how to’s though before you jump in.

PL Precept 19.  Begin once you Perceive.

Have a great day, thanks for sharing this moment with me… you’ve helped me get going today… thank you, thank you, thank you!

PL Precept # 21. Live in Perfect Liberty…..

Namaste     –     Oyashikiri

 

# NB – In the Pl Church we live by 21 Precepts and 21 Principles.
