a wee world

a wee one

It is much cooler in the wee world, where one can travel, play, explore and enjoy any temperature that pleases. along the mushroom trail is where you can find Q today, She is having a ME day.

Some days the greatest playground is the one that you can discover while never leaving home.

Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

The gators there are two of them one at each entrance to the club. Unless you fall off the ramp or walkway you’ll be safe.. I loved the animation and design of the swamp around this nightclub. They are a really friendly bunch that work there, and the patrons of the club appreciate not only the music played by the talented DJs the ambiance is such, you have only to enjoy yourself.

If you are not familiar with the virtual worlds, this club is in Second Life, https://secondlife.com/

dreaming

the night was clear
it was time to fly into “slumberland”

the enchantment of the night

the desire to be free

my spirit soars into the beyond

knowing that out in the Universe

the calm and serenity of the night

would make my world alright.

landscapes so blue… so true

the moonlight colouring the land a gentle blue

a mesmerizing hue of all that is real

when in a dreamscape I am with YOU.

I wanted to, but life got in the way.

surrounded by activity, yet alone

Over the holidays I read prose, poems and thoughts that expressed, the reality of feeling alone in life. Gave me pause to think about my own life, my memories, and the people who have come and gone over the years.

nights of contemplation

There were days, nights even weeks, when I was lost in a dreamworld of my own. Questioning the emotion of love, of loving being loved, What I have learned over the years, is forget about expectations, they are your journey and no one elses. Two people can stand in the same room side by side, and not see the same things at all.

In PL, we are given the tools to realize that the person we have to love is ourselves, only in knowing who we are, and our needs can we share them with someone else. Unconditional love is not easy. But I believe it is attainable. To know sadness, you have had to know happiness. Being human is not a flaw, it is a blessing. To experience life, we have to let go and welcome new energy.

Everyone wishes to be happy and lead a happy life. In PL we can experience true joy and happiness when we are able to freely express our unique individuality )Makoto) in each moment of our lives/

8.28_001Once more I saw the open doorway, showing me the path to the other side, this time I dared to wander closer.

8.28_003

There was a silence in the air, yet, there was a breeze and the bird (on the right) made a soft cooing sound as he flew by.  His bright feathers so fitting against the blue skies

8.28_004

As I walked my feet made no sound, yet the grass beneath my feet was soft and lush.

8.28_005

The pathway was inviting, I gladly let it lead the way.

8.28_010

Around each corner a new discovery.  Can you imagine my delight.

8.28_007

I felt rather than saw the light that seemed to guide me along through the growth that surrounded me on all side.  I knew no fear, I felt content and aware of the life around me.

8.28_009

There was much to see and take in. Such creativity, such vision.

8.28_011

When I entered a great hall, I felt small, I was one of many to stand  within the walls, I stood alone at that moment in time, yet in my heart I knew, I was not alone. I was surrounded by each and every one of you.  See you are here now. . Just not at the moment I was there. (smiles and winks)

8.28_014.png

There is much to see, enjoy, learn, and share as we grow as human beings and wandering souls.  Don’t be afraid to share and love the ALL that you are.  Dreams are part of our reality.  Whether you believe, or not.

text mine Q

the artists in the virtual worlds, are creators, and imaginaries

then now???? gone?

atsushi-and-mamoru_002

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.

dec.2_001

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

alexandria 8,4,c

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.

Warning ##|\!

McDonalds 5.31.17I have stopped listening to the audio recording of Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosserr I simply could not listen to another CD.  Not because it was awful, the truth is, it is an interesting and well researched book/CD. “Part investigative journalism, part social criticism,” it was a New York Times bestseller and has been critically acclaimed.

On the back cover, it says ” a fine piece of muckraking, alarming without being alarmist”..  my sensibilities just couldn’t take anymore.. I got up to CD 5 and couldn’t listen to anymore.  “the dark side of the all American meal”  The laws in Canada are not the same as the USA, never-the-less…   There is a lot of common sense, and ah ha  moments. If you are not aware of this book, or this author,  then if you are  interested in something different.. please check it out.  I got mine at the public library, I thought it was something else, I really didn’t peruse it… I just thought it was a quick and easy…. NOT!

The news these days has been so repetitive, bleak and often shake your head, sad.. that I thought it would be a change.. NOT!

Time to find a feel good holiday movie to watch, or simply listen to music, if I thought I could go to sleep, wake up and the world would be different… nah.. that is wishful thinking…

Time to find a quiet world, where the air is clear, thoughts are able to chill, and time for a while, floats in a happy space.

chop suey for Cindy

avatar-and-biggie

Cindy this blog is for you.. I had to search through my huge inventory of photos to find a picture of the Wynx Otter.  (Wynx is a builder/designer in Second Life) she is the first builder to give us a huge variety of animal avatars.  The picture you see above is yours truly in her biggie (what we call human form) and in my Dinky avatar. The Dinky is an avatar created by the builder and designer, Etheria Parrott from the UK.

http://www.secondlife.come is the trademarked name of a virtual world, called Second Life. It comes to us from the United States, California.

Here are some examples of the variety offered.  The two avatars on the left upper corner, or the Wynx Otter avatars..  The next picture over shows you a possum, a kangaroo and I think a hippo. The otter is appears again in the white dress bottom right.  In SL (Second Life) for several years, I made clothes for the little avatars, so the pictures with the clothes, are of me modeling the outfit, for my marketing boards.

And yes, at one time, I was able to make enough money with my online shops to trade the linden dollars in for US dollars. I have been a virtual artist/creator since 2007.  I now longer design and make clothes for Tiny or Biggies, the market has changed dramatically with mesh and other software with technical advances that my brain simply does not want to relearn new techniques.. So now I just enjoy my friends.

In the virtual world our friends come from all corners of the world. We enjoy exchanging ideas, and sharing our creativity.  Of course there are many layers of the virtual world, like in our day to day world, it takes all kinds.. right..+^_^=    …

avatar-cabs-otterHere is a new avatar, by a designer who is more current with today’s animations, in that her avatars use a different animation than the Wynx AV.  And can use the regular human animations, they are not limited like the Wynx avatar, it has to have its own set of animations.  CABs store, in SL   For SL community members the link provided will take you to her shop.  If you are not a player in SL, you would have to visit http://www.secondlife.com to download the viewer.  It is FREE

Second Life is not “just” a game, it is a community of players who interact and yes build a second life in a virtual world.  It is very hard to explain, one has to experience it and form one’s own ideas.

Charities operate in SL, it is a source of revenue, may people who are handicapped or disabled and unable to participate in life the way they used to or want to, can do so with the use of an avatar.  Behind each avatar is a real person, sitting at a desk or at their keyboard interacting with you.

atsushi-and-mamoru_002

Because of this two young ministers, were open to visiting SL and working at a Perfect Liberty “home” to work with people who had signed up to know more about the teachings of PL.  Unfortunately, they were transferred back to Japan before we could do much else, but get their avatars up and running.

There are many social agencies working in SL, for Seniors, for survivors of abuse, the educational land social network is vast.  At any given time there could be over 50,000 people on, and that would be a slow period.

I will leave you with some pictures of Dinky clothes being offered for the Dinky avatar, tell me they are not the cutest… =^_^=

avatar-dinkies

Thanks everyone, for sharing a bit of leisure with me today.  Cheers
