Good Morning Everyone!
Today is the 21st of the month, the day that all members of Perfect Liberty celebrate, and when possible come to church, where the Minister and / or Hokyoshi perform the “formal” Thanksgiving ceremony. It is a day set aside each month to remind us to show appreciation and not take for granted the world around us. It is so easy to step off the path we are on. And, reality is, we often find that in some way, we are no longer in alignment with our spiritual goals. Our vibrational alignment needs a tune up. In observing our thoughts we realize that some how we just aren’t going in the right direction. Time for a U turn?
Expressing your true feelings, saying thank you when someone, or something brings sadness into your life, saying thank you when you find an unexpected event has brought you to a happy place. Both are moments of truth, both are a celebration of your perceptions, feelings and thought process. It is in interacting with others that we grow. Love is a four letter word with a myriad of ways it is expressed, utilized and felt. When we can genuinely express a true feeling of appreciation by saying Thank You out loud, Wow… when we can show someone we care, not just say it… its a feel good situation for everyone. We often take for granted the ones closest to us.. Remember today to say Thank YOU…
Instead of mourning for love that is lost, remember the happiness experienced.
We can only be ourselves, if we let others be themselves, no more , no less……Blessings … Oyashikiri

Wouldn’t it be nice if our lives could be all planned out in neat little rows, That we could organize, sow and cultivate, knowing that our wants and desires would line up just the way we want them to. The above picture is lovely, it took hours of work, and many people working together to produce this “garden” of colour. Realize that all of their hard work, planning and efforts came to fruition, because they had a clear vision of what their goal was, & what they wanted to achieve The unspoken here, but the obvious, and this dear reader is what we need to remember in life.. without the input and unseen help and support of Mother Nature the outcome could have been much different. We take for granted the air we breathe, the rain that washes over and cleans our planet. Nature is a force that is a constant in our lives – sometimes we rejoice in the sunshine, – we love it and want it all the time, but without the rain our crops would fail, rivers and lakes would run dry, When you cry, you wash away the dust in your eyes, the sadness in your heart grows lighter. Appreciate all of life.
This tranquil setting is in Den Bosch,Nederlands. I invite you to spend a few minutes with me in silent meditation Take a nice easy breath in, ahhh … hold it for just a few seconds, feel it open your lungs, and now… slowly let it out… let your gaze relax, follow the ripples as they slowly meander through our view and into the beyond. See how the stillness in the water captures the images that are beyond our immediate sight….. just because we don’t see them, doesn’t mean they are not there……………………. enjoy this brand new day……………………make it count ……………..I so appreciate and love sharing these moments with you…………………..peace and prosperity be with you…..………….Oyashikiri
I have no idea why, but I woke up this morning and the found a song running through my head. “It’s Saturday night and I just got married la la la” I have no idea where that came from, why its there, I’m trying to recall if I had a vivid dream, or what I was thinking of last night, but it escapes me. I don’t even think I watched the telly last night… chuckles… oh well, at least its a peppy song, happily I don’t recall any of the words to the song except the first few lines.
It produces a wonderful, fresh and rather enticing picture for us to look at =^_^=. How was is your day so far? Are you enjoying it? The PL lesson for the day is about being proactive and flowing with the “joys” and never ending challenges of life. It is about being present, mindful, and honest with yourSELF in your reactions to what comes your way. Hmm doesn’t look like Mother Nature is going to give me outdoor sunshine today, BUT, my day starts with sunshine, because.. you ready for it. I’ve started my day with YOU.
Every bloom holds a hug and prayer, just for you. Happiness is sharing. Its LOVE pure and TRUE > Oyashikiri
“Mine is the joy that comes from the path of liberation, and my secret I share with all, for in giving it I do not lose it” (Buddha-the Quest for Serenity)
Keep your eyes,mind and heart in tune with the changes, learn to deal with them proactively, and always keep a smile in your heart, share it as often as you can.
