Yes !  I am strong

Yes !  I can be wrong

Yes !  I accept that challenges

Am I ready for what the day will bring

Yes, you bet, the birds are singing

and I am more than willing

I’m full of cheer and wonder

Why Yes?, woke up this way

Yes, I will smile today

there will be sunshine in my day

even if it is of my own making

Smiles across the miles, and says

YES !  for sure, you can quote me

This is a  Y E S !   day.

crumbling

stairs 1

 

We haves a similar ruin in the Gatineau Parks, not all that far from the city.  During the spring, summer and fall, people, locals, and tourists flock to the Gatineau Hills to enjoy a respite from the busy city and concrete.  Our winters can be brutally cold, and our summers extremely hot and humid.  We are blessed in living in an area that experiences each season in all of its glory. Whenever the season changes, the ruins take on a different look “feeling”.  In winter I wanted to snowshoe up to see them, but never did, You know the old expression, “could have, should have, didn’t”

abandoned -memories

 

This picture reminded me of when we used to visit on of my Mother’s aunts in the Muskoka area.  A city girl, it was something of a wonder for me when I first saw the little store, with the pumps outside to service the passing cars going into Algonquin Park. Canada is full of huge park lands and places where civilization hasn’t been able to clamour to and destroy wildlife and vegetation.  I had to be dragged kicking and sulking to go up there in the summer, once there, I would delight in the new discoveries I would find.  Jumping into water as crystal clear as one could find, while distant cousins jumped from the wooden bridge into deeper water.  The track we took to get to the stream was packed earth sand,we sat on rocks, and picked wild berries along the trails as we explored.  There was no other sounds except our childish banter, the birds, and what little traffic could be heard from the few passing cars in the distance.  There were  no radios we brought along, no cellphones,  just us and the outdoors.

nature and water

Yes of course, I’m older now, and seldom do I reminisce, yet there are times, like today, when a picture will pull a memory from my gray cells and I will relive an experience or moment, that happened a long time ago.  With the internet we all connect now in a very different way, and I am always pleased when I find that someone else has been experiencing similar flashbacks, and is sharing their story or visual memory in a photograph that in some way closely resembles  mine. then from ruins come rebirth, and I am refreshed.  Much like the walk in the forest along quiet trails when the world was not as busy.

Life events might crumble, buildings can be torn down or abandoned, but what is constant and always with us no matter what time of day or night, is the Universe.. No matter where we are, we will find Nature to view, to feel, to experience, Always, Nature is present, The Universe is open and available 24/7, we need only accept with an open and sincere heart what is before us.

sky and clouds

Love, true love, never dies, nor does it crumble away and fade to dust.  True caring, is the sharing of one’s heart and soul forever.

There are no restrictions, no demands, and no judgements ……….. it simply IS, no more…no less.

There cannot be one without the other.

Welcome the day

Yin/Yang – Black/White

we met, we talked, we danced,

the world went from dark to light

explosions came and went

and,   just like that

one life ended

another began

mystic silence - snake eyes Lou

Tender are the moments shared

Silent in my private world

I’ve waited for you

Today is brand new

I welcome you

Transformation

NorwayToday’s PL thought for the day is about discovering the joy of transforming one’s Self.  It talks about how when we strive to improve ourselves,and the changes begin to take place…. we are filled with a happiness  that is more satisfying and rewarding.  Change is the only constant in life.  The sensual delivery/impressions of  this photqgraph is stunning. The slightly stronger presence of Yin,  merges with Yang in a true blending of light and shadows.  Nature is Art in its purest form.

imagesucrkovy5For readers and followers of the Tao, the hexagram #5 HSU, calculated waiting is the meditation of the day.  Creativity  and strength in the lower trigram, Ch’ien are held in check by the profound mystery of K’an, above.  ( Calculated waiting  hexagram #5 ).   In groups or relationships, all parties are involved in a situation that requires calculated and good natured waiting.  The situation is not in anyone one’s hands, it is about Destiny.  there are times when any action could or would be a foolish  one ..ie. over-reaction.  So nourish one another instead with a happy and loving heart that provides reassurance instead.

Good Saturday morning to you my friend, may the day develop into a perfect memory for you…. Smile, you are never alone.    Blessings…  Oyashikiri

Welcome another day!

Yesterday I found myself at the bottom of the steps in a beautiful environment,  in reflecting on my post, I realized that not all steps are a welcome sight.  That there are days when our thoughts and emotions are in a different place.  Or should I say, in wandering through the hallways of the brain, we come across a scene perhaps like this one.

9a98ec7ae23e621913bcac5743154dc4Pause for a moment.  Look at the picture that the photographer of this shot captured.  I’m not sure I know his/her intent, but to me it speaks volumes.  Much like this one does.  Again it was a toss up on which picture I would use today.  Both spoke volumes to me and had me meditating on my thoughts for some time before I took to the keyboard.

339939f9024c0c5082a0d995848a9bcdBoth of these pictures (for me) capture the essence of life at given moments during certain cycles we live through.  When all around seems dreary,painful,lost, when our hearts are heavy, and our laughter barely a whisper, it is in such times that we have to call on our faith, know that the beauty is still there, that the sunshine is merely behind a cloud.  The moment will pass, and the light of love and happiness with shine through once more.  To love, to care is to allow yourself to feel vulnerable.  Mother Nature is ALWAYS present.  WE cannot know happiness without sadness, they go hand in hand, when you hold out your hand, you only see one side until you turn your hand over to see the palm. They are ONE.

Love and Blessings……thanks for sharing this moment with me.   Oyashikiri

11th of the month, Ancestor Day

0937d5820779f8bd829694415e8398ddWe are who we are.  No amount of cosmetic surgery, make up or fashion styles we make will change who we are, or where we came from.  What does change is the way we use the skills and  God given talents we have (understanding of life).  This is an old Japanese print that I found, and thought it was a very appropriate visual for today’s greeting.

The clever and subtle messages of the artist are wonderful.  I see so many possibilities of interpretation. He/she has captured the happiness of the cat being worked on, the little claws are  out as it kneads its contentment into the carpet.  How one feels when enjoying a wonderful relaxing massage. =^_^=  the look of face on the “giver” is focused and mindful of what it is doing.  The signer stamp of the artist is an artistic sign of the TAO.. Yin/Yang.  Male/Female, Active/Passive and this is what the picture is a balance .  Harmony of two energies.  TAO – complete ONEness in the moment.

You are here today, thanks to your ancestors.  Their actions, lives were instrumental in your being here at this very moment.  On the 11th of every month, through ceremony, we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors and ask for their protection and guidance so we can continue to live the PL WAY. (Perfect Liberty)   Service is at 10 a.m.  today..             Life is Art       ( PL Precept #1 )

Happy Tuesday to you all………. May the sun shine its warmth on you today &, bless your night with the happy twinkling of the brilliant stars that dress the moonlit night.           Oyashikiri
