      Awens to All:

      Seeing as Imbolc is the Closest Sacred Sabbath to Valentines Day, I decided to make this year’s Imbolc 3X3 Triad Poem to be one that is Flattering to a Member of BC Forums Lady Lush.

      Originally started in the 2019 Valentines Forum Thread ‘Flattering Lady Lush’ where I composed 9 Triads composed to Flatter Lady Lush, I decided to compile those Triads into a 3X3 Triad Poem and making them into a future 3X3 Triad Poem. 2022’s Imbolc seems to be the Perfect Sacred Sabbath to post my 3X3 Triad Poem Flattering Lady Lush.

      Unfortunately, Lady Lush has not be active on BC Forums since February 2020 so I am also posting this 3X3 Triad Poem in order to convey how I am have been Missing Lady Lush. She disappeared just as the Covid19 Pandemic was starting so I am worried about what has become of her and I am hoping she is doing alright.

      Here is my 3X3 Triad Poem on Flattering Lady Lush:

      Lady Lush Is:
      – Lovely,
      – Pretty,
      – And Charming.

      Lady Lush Is Never:
      – Rude,
      – Obnoxious,
      – Or Insulting.

      Lady Lush Loves:

      – Her Cats,
      – And Nature.


      Lady Lush Has Lovely:
      – Hair,
      – Sparkling Eyes,
      – And A Radiant Smile.

      Lady Lush’s Prettiness Is:
      – Ravishing,
      – Alluring,
      – And Natural.

      Lady Lush’s Charm Is:
      – Radiant,
      – Witty,
      – And Cheerful.


      Lady Lush’s Children:

      – Twirling,
      – And Dancing.

      Lady Lush’s Hair Is:
      – Long,
      – Full,
      – And Fluffy.

      Lady Lush Is Naturally:
      – Gentle,
      – Pure,
      – And True.

        Here is my 2009 Imbolc Triad of Wisdom Composition. It is based on my having Bought and Read the Book “The Art Of Living” last Winter Solstice, which is based on the Lectures and Teachings of the Dalai Lama.

        It goes:

        The Art of Living –

        The Art of Living Well is due to:
        – Being Contented,
        – Having A Joyful Life,
        – And Good Fulfillment.

        Motivations For Being Compassionate:
        – Having Appreciation For Nature,
        – Being Sympathetic Of Suffering,
        – And Practicing Essential Wisdoms.

        Negative Harmful Emotions:
        – Anger,
        – Hatred,
        – And Unhealthy Desires.


        Contentedness comes from:
        – Good Bodily Health,
        – Adequate Material Wealth,
        – And Peaceful Companionships.

        One Has Joy When:
        – One Is Enlightened,
        – Healthy Desires Are Satisfied,
        – And When Happiness Is Achieved.

        What Is Fulfilling:
        – Having Overcome Hardships,
        – Finishing Ones Work,
        – And Acceptance Of Ones Faults.


        At Time Of Death, One Must:
        – Have Good Peace Of Mind,
        – Prepare For Ones Rebirth,
        – And Having Transformed Experiences Into Wisdom.

        Environmental Problems Come From:
        – Insatiable Harmful Desires,
        – Lacking Contentedness,
        – And Having Too Much Greed.

        Emotional Thoughts Should Be:
        – Useful,
        – Constructive,
        – And Beneficial.

              We are still in the Time of Beltane so I have decided to post a past Beltane 3X3 Triad of Wisdom Poem for you all to Enjoy:

              Awens to All:

              Here is my 2017 Beltane 3X3 Triad Of Wisdom and is based on the Book that I borrowed from the BVS Buddhist Temple in 2015 called ‘Treasures Of The Buddhas’s Teachings’ by the Veneral Monk Ajahn Thiradhammo.

              I have seen Ajahn Thiradhammo do a Dharma Talk and Speech a couple of times at the BCIT Lecture Halls and he seemed to me to be Very Wise, Harmonious and Peaceful. So I decided to Read his Book and compose a 3X3 Triad Of Wisdom Poem based on Triads of Wisdom I found in his Book.

              I call it ‘The Treasures Of The Buddha’s Teachings’ 3X3 Triad Poem and goes:

              Good Life Is Full Of:
              – Good Friendships,
              – Companionship,
              – And Association.

              Spiritual Practice Combines:
              – Skillful Living,
              – Meditation,
              – And Wisdom.

              Awakening Is Learning To Relinquish:
              – Cravings,
              – Clinging,
              – And Self Willed Actions.


              Truth Of Things Is Summarized By:
              – Impermanence,
              – Unsatisfactoriness,
              – And Impersonality.

              Kamma Intentional Action Is Produced By:
              – Body,
              – Speech,
              – And Mind.

              Delusions Burns Us With:
              – Confusion,
              – Doubt,
              – And Fear.


              The Nobel Truths Liberates Us From:
              – Aging,
              – Death,
              – And Painful Sufferings.

              Teaching The Dhamma Is Beautiful:
              – In The Beginning,
              – In The Middle,
              – And In The End.

              The Unawakened Is Overwhelmed By:
              – The Desire For Gain,
              – Honour,
              – And Renown.

                  I used to go camping years ago. I remember those small nylon tents, the inside would become coated with moisture from yout breath and when the wind blew the tent you would get sprayed with stale saliva. Lol. I would say camping is freedom.

                    Trying to Post on this Thread but this System will not let me.

                      Awens to All:

                      This is my 2022 Samhain 3X3 Triad of Wisdom and it is on the Slings & Arrows of Growing Old.

                      I have been feeling these Slings & Arrows for the past couple of years and have decided to write a 3X3 Triad on that sort of thing since I am now experiencing the effects of what it is like to Grow Old during this Lifetime.

                      So Here It Goes:

                      Signs Of Growing Old:
                      – Hair Going Grey,
                      – Skin Becoming Wrinkled,
                      – And Voice Becoming Elderly.

                      When Getting Older:
                      – You Pine About Your Failures,
                      – Remember Your Victories,
                      – And Mourn Your Tragedies.

                      Grey Hair Is A Sign Of:
                      – Knowledge,
                      – Aging,
                      – And Becoming A Senior.

                      Wrinkled Skin Happens To:

                      – Black Africans,
                      – And Yellow Orientals.

                      The Voice Communicates:

                      – Sadness,

                      – Constantly Being Scammed,
                      – Ripped Off,

                            – And Fish Swim.

                            Hope Comes From:
                            – The Sun Shining,
                            – Seeds Germinating
                            – And Good Karma.

                              Based on a Thread on things that need to be kept Sorted, I came up with so many things that need to be kept Sorted that I decided to make it a Subject for a 3X3 Triad of Wisdom Poem.

                              So this is my 3X3 Lughnasad Poem on what needs to be kept Sorted.

                                Since the subject of Harm has been brought up fairly often in the past couple of years especially in my BC Forums Pagans Forum, I have decided to make it the Dark Subject for this Year’s Samhain 3X3 Triad Poem.

                                It is about what sort of effects Harm can have.

                                So Here It Is –

                                Doing Harm Is:
                                – Destructive,
                                – Creates Bad Karma,
                                – But Sometimes Necessary.

                                The Most Harmful People Are:
                                – Sociopaths,
                                – Psychopaths,
                                – And Narcissistic Perfectionists.

                                When Harm Is Corrected:
                                – There is Happiness,
                                – Joy,
                                – And Celebrations.


                                Destructive Harm:
                                – Vandalism,
                                – Seeking Revenge,
                                – And Bullying Others.

                                Harmful Karma Comes Back:
                                – From Past Lifes Harms,
                                – Effect Your Present Life,
                                – Or Can Haunt Us In Future Lives,

                                Harm Is Sometimes Necessary:
                                – When Defending One Self From Harm,
                                – When Protecting The Bullied,
                                – And When Punishing Criminals.


                                Because Of Harmful People:
                                – We Need The Police,
                                – Social Workers,
                                – And The Fire Brigade.

                                Harm Can Create:
                                – Spiritual,
                                – Emotional,
                                – As Well As Physical Damage.

                                Harm Created When Pranks Go Horribly Wrong:
                                – Old Wounds Might Be Reopened,
                                – Cause Irreparable Damage,
                                – And Can Summon The Wraith Of The GRIM REAPER!

                                  Greetings on this Remembrance Day:

                                  This is my Ode to Blueberry Muffins.

                                  They are so Delicious, Sweet and Nutritious and has a Very Special Memory for me while I was in the Army.

                                  In about 1985, I was on a Military Operation in the Chilliwack Valley during December and we were going about Tactically in the Cold Bushes which were covered with Frost. We were Very Very Cold in that Damp Coldness of the Pacific West Coast Winter.

                                  We did our Exercise Patrols playing being Enemy Force for a group of Officer Candidates who were doing their Tactical Training and after that finally was over, we went back to our Base Camp.

                                  In our Headquarters Tent was a few Bags of Fresh Warm Blueberry Muffins.

                                  After getting back from those Cold Military Maneuver, nothing made us feel better than having Warm Fresh from the Oven Blueberry Muffins!

                                  I have had a Love On for Blueberry Muffins ever since.
