express yourself

skeleton thinking

Do you find yourself waiting for the right moment.  Waiting for the “plan” to come together, then find out days, weeks later that “by golly”, it is not done yet, or you’ve lost the thread of that “great” idea?”

The PL 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.

WeighYourself

There are times, when we can fool others, but try as we might, we cannot fool ourselves.  Deep down, we know ourselves, even when we try to do otherwise… The truth is within.

Day 7

Don’t Strain, Don’t Rush, and Don’t be Greedy

When you are doing something, my may rush things to get good results quickly.  Instead relax and enjoy the process (PL, Perfect Liberty)

origami 3.4.18Remember this from yesterday.  I loved the simplicity of it, I wanted to do it.  To make it easier on myself, I asked the minister’s wife if she could please show me how to do it. Being a visual person, I do better when I see something done  (when it is totally foreign to me and origami is)  Her patience at folding the paper, and refolding to ensure that I was seeing where I had to turn the paper, how to fold a crease etc. was calming.

I didn’t know that I was so  hesitant to do it wrong, that I wouldn’t even try until I saw her do it.  The she patiently led me through the steps, one by one.

Me, “miss get it done” was learning something new,  I doubt it is something I will ever excel in, but I did it.  I have an artistic bent as you all know.  The mediums I do best in, are media that work WITH me, for example, my “style” of work, and my need to watch the process develop (I am getting better) finds me working with acrylic and water paints. Oils and I have not clicked over the years.  Yet I do work with mediums that require over night drying…I’ve never taken to oils.

This lesson has a lot to “say” to me. I know that I will do my best to apply myself to practicing the wisdom in this lesson.

I will do my best.. that is all any of us can do.

Have a good day everyone.. LOVE and Blessings.

PL Precept #11 – always be with God

There is something enduring about older vehicles

when you opened a door or closed one

there was a “feel” to it, that doesn’t come with the automobiles of today.

PL lesson 5- Widsom Comes Naturally when you are humble

wisdom

“You will stop growing if you have a conceited or boastful mind.  Always remember to be humble.”

This is when practicing the art of listening is so important.  If we think we know it all, or already know what someone is going to say or do, we deprive ourselves of learning.  It could be a new way of doing something, or a different viewpoint on a subject we think we have down pat.

PL lesson 5

Chinese New Year (year of Monkey) has already started in parts of the world.   A time to celebrate with family and friends. In China, people travel for days to get home, this is a big holiday.

Where ever you are, however you are celebrating, may inner joy, satisfying rewards, and good health be the core essence of the new year.

bom dia…bon jour…. hello!

life itself is simple

it really is

it is the human mind

that complicates

what IS

8e43cd752afd31dd59eb3660f7948efa

I am sometimes at a loss

not necessarily for words

but for the “music” or visual if you like

to accompany the words

in life, there is always a positive and a negative

you cannot have one

without the other

one person speaks, the other listens

the start of a conversation

one sees something, and captures it on film/photo

they have already seen it,

what they are doing is capturing the moment

to share, to show, to express

one picture, a thousand stories

not one person wil have the same reaction

CHINA-T-NATURE 1

however, we will each have a unique response

if we stop long enough

to allow the moment to speak to us

PL Precept #1 Life is Art

mirrorPL Precept # 15 – All is a mirror

How we perceive and live our lives, is of our own making

we learn to take responsibility for our actions

The actions of our children often reflect one’s they observed

while growing up at home

When we are living our lives and moving through the maze of distractions,

wonders, and pitfalls, sometimes it is only in hindsight that we realize

the fall out or repercussions of our interaction with others.

whether we mean to or not, something we do, say, or not do or say

can be hurtful and cause sadness in another.

Wisdom comes from living life

not from reading about it

An artist that can bare his/her soul

using visual or auditory expression

is usually someone

who has lived and learned through mistakes and hardship

when we do something and it doesn’t work out

it is not a failure, it is a success story

the hard part was stepping outside

the comfort zone

expanding your horizons

allowing the depth of your Being

to experience all of what

Nature/God has provided

life is a banquet of choices

a seed is planted

a seed was planted

& you were born

to live a life of art

Grant me the wisdom to know

rhododendron forest trail - Virginia -david mosner

 

When my time on earth is done

help me enjoy life as it  unfolds

to live to the fullest each hour and second of the day

if life has its own holding pattern

that requires patience

Help me trust in the way of the Universe

by your grace and with your guidance

I will live with makoto (sincerity)

in your comforting embrace.
