Wisdom is a divine endowment – not a human acquisition

Happiness is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to deal with it

Found this quote in one of my profiles.  I for some reason, did not note where I got it from, but the words aren’t mine, however, at the time, I must have connected with the sentiment.

There are days when I feel like “ I am” on a stage … that I am rehearsing or going through a chapter that is “in progress”.   For sure, what I am living is my personal experience.  Today while in meditation, I revisited, or tried to, my interpretation of an event that is yet to happen.  Then the spotlight shone down on me, and I knew I had to be in the present.  To succeed I have to be present.

Every frame of the “scenes”  being lived, needed my focus on the present if I was to even “live” to experience the pending “event”

Ah life, it is a beautiful exhilarating happening, isn’t it.

Enjoy the first day of a new month.

Happy Canada day everyone!June 15_005

Forever Young

Some times I am just too cute for words!  =^_^=

Day 2  PL Calendar –  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 every changing world.

I  so truly believe in these words.  One of the reasons I enjoy Second Life so much (virtual world) click here is the opportunities it gives me to express my artistic self, as well, as be anyone, or any “creature” I want.  The  creative opportunities are endless.

Every day, we live our lives usually dealing with the immediate needs that come our way.  To keep our senses sharp and be ready to adapt, we have to be willing to “let go” of old habits, and to allow new ideas and expressions to colour our world.

Little steps.  One day at a time.

In the PL community there is always someone to listen.  Someone to “help” .. someone to “listen”

particle fragments

lexi light show_003Bom dia

hello Morning.  Watching the particle show last night, I was dazzled by the many displays and the constant changes happening before my eyes.  The artist performing the particle show is very gifted, the changes ebbed and flowed to the beat of the music with a rhythm that was almost hypnotic.

As I watched her weave her magic, I thought, “wouldn’t that be something to try to do” that thought lasted but a second or so. Reality tapped me on the other shoulder.  If I was doing what Lexxi was doing, then I wouldn’t be in the audience captivated, I would be focused on being creative.(active)

My choice at that moment, was to be her admirer, someone enjoying her talent, allowing my own thoughts to drift and my “battery” to charge, my creativity to be fired up my her talent, and use of it. (passive)

That is balance, that is knowing that there are times to be active, and times to be passive.

Have a fabulous start to a brand spanking new week….

PL Calendar – day 9  – Your surroundings are a reflection of YOU

A person who constantly worries will always find things to worry about.  An optimistic person will attract happiness.  A kind person will always be blessed with kindness in return.

Disco Monday aka Wednesday

arriving for some disco

the clan start to gather

the fun began

at Pacifique (SL) the music, the atmosphere, the friends,

a musical interlude, a nice way to end the day.

Ok that was how I ended my day, but the start was just as great.  We drove out to visit with our new whippet, here she is spending some time with her soon to be brother.  Who is being as aloof and distant as he can be.  Real party poop.

Keeper 10.18.17b

Meet Keeper, she is 5 years old.

Keeper 10.18.17cOK she saying, I’ve done my few minutes with big brother, now let’s do something else. She is a sweetheart, can’t wait for her to be home with us full-time.

There is room in a day to do a lot of things, attend to what needs doing, resting, and having some “chill” time.

Good Morning Everyone!

Remember this picture.  I’ve used it before.  I loved the stained glass windows.  I loved how the windows survived while the insides of the church was showing the rubble and decay of neglect and time.  Not being the photographer who took this picture, I do not know what the outside of this building looked like.  My vision  can only drink in what I see.  My emotions and feelings  toss and turn inside my head looking for the words to explain what seeing this moment in time does to and for me.

Today’s meditation/lesson   >The bigger the task, the more  your convictions are tested <  So many questions arose when I looked at the church, the light from outside is still coming through the windows, on a bright sunny day, how mesmerizing the view must be.  How enchanted I am just gazing at the light coming in through the various colours.  The peeling on the old walls has formed a lace pattern of intricate designs, were I there today, I would zoom in for a closer look. (times like this I miss my viewer in SL)  ( LOL.. for those of us who are part of the community in the virtual world of SL, there is a lot I’m sure that we at times wish we could do in our everyday lives as easily as we do in our other reality)

window 1

We all have windows in our lives, and mostly we look out.. not into them.  Why is that do you think?  When we encounter a challenge, are given a diagnosis we don’t really want … … what is it we tend to do.  Look on Google, ask around about it, share the information with a friend.???  We’re given a window, what do we do with it…

Flowers in the WindowWindows are symbolic of consciousness.  Yet windows are often simply part of our physical space, and are given thought to when we need to ope or close the shutters /blinds.. or look out to see if it is raining.  Unlike the door which we  interact with on a daily basis.  Using it to enter or leave the premises, yet I doubt we pay that much attention to it.  Tasks and challenges/opportunities are like windows and doors in our lives.  We “see” them, we use them, but often don’t really “see” them at all.  They just are.

Sometimes we need to look at the window, really look at it, and see it not only from outside, but from inside as well. When we encounter resistance in our thinking, we are looking in only one direction, usually out, it is often what is inside that is at the heart of the matter.

Come sit with me, share this time to contemplate the moment.  Together we will live this moment in time, so when we move on, this moment will not be forgotten.    Our windows allow the light to come in, when it does, let it shine……………….

“If what you desire

is to be inspired and feel joy

but the opposite keeps showing up,

Rather than cursing fate

you can view yourself

as simply being

out of creative

vibrational alignment.”

Goedenmorgen, good morning everyone

Alo 3.1_005Remember the song, Rock and Roll is here to stay, or when we were all hearing about the “British invasion”?  Of course not, some of you do, and others have no idea of what I’m talking about.  Never -the-less … both are part of “history”, contributed to the world today.  Not all that long ago, I was doing research for a virtual blog*  I write, when I came across these characters in a haunted house.  I had the opportunity to meet and talk with the builder of this particular setting and others just as much fun and creative, Being an artist myself, I am often humbled by the ability of others to recreate such fun and authentic looking scenes.  The designer, BambiTwice Nitely has given the virtual world of SL a playground for explorers that is unbelievable in the range of destinations she has provided.  i.e Medieval Fantasy, Star Wars, Aquatic-Marine and Tropical fish, the list goes on, oh and I must not forget a museum of amazing Illusions, these are just a few.  all this to say, because in our limited worlds, we often resist stepping outside the box.  Going or doing something that we have never done before, will always bring something new into our lives. Give us a new perspective.  Challenge us to revisit some of our thinking?

How  has your day been so far, where you on the stairway through the day, are your steps leading up or coming down? Either way, you will find a new vista(s) to explore.  We should try to start each day with a renewed sense of appreciation.  Smiles through the screen at you.  Life is so full of treasures some long forgotten that need to be rediscovered and others that are brand spanking new.  Remember  LIFE IS ART

Where do you want to be today?   Choose to feel the range of your emotions rather than become numb or indifferent. Make your choice the one that will have you being present in all you do, to be mindful of what the day has in store  – reach out and share your mega watt smile with the world.  Trust you will be empowered.    Blessings, Oyashikiri   smilePencil
