It is hard
to move beyond
the logical,
the reasoning mind –
is this not
where your
belief systems
set up shop
and set
the rules?

This is where
choices happen –
yes, there needs
to be organized
thought,
but might you
remember
that there is
more to you
and those
around you,
then only
your mind?

If everyone
is ready
to fight,
to choose
a side,
to defend
their stance,
all it takes
is an initial
volley of
chosen words,
and the
fight is on –
is it not
hard to listen
when a barrage
of words
are not meant
to be heard?

Have not words
become the
ammunition –
to express
emotion,
of what does
not make sense
to the logical,
reasoning mind –
where belief systems
are the rule?

Can you open
your heart
to hear,
to feel,
to get past
the lines
drawn in the
sand,
from your mind,
that gets distracted
by the noise,
by the fight –
can you get past
the hurling of words,
to hear,
to sense
what is beyond
the frustration,
the emotion
of another mind –
to hear
a beating heart?

There are many
perspectives
you can take,
to see,
to feel,
to sense,
as you integrate
your mind,
your spirit,
the Love
within your heart –
might you balance
out the words,
with the awareness
that All Is One?

So many perspectives,
so many experiences
allow you
to choose
your words,
your reactions –
your mind,
your heart
can work together
to choose Love,
see Love,
hear Love
and Be Love.

Be Kind.
Be Open.
Be You.
Be Love.

Seeds of Love

One little
tiny seed
from a tree
drops into
the ground below,
buried in
life-giving soil,
with water
and light,
does it not
grow –
to begin
so small,
to grow
so big,
does not
the seed
have all
it needs
to become
a majestic tree?

One little
drop of Love
from
All That Is
begins
on the earth –
starting tiny,
ever-growing
with water
and food
do you not grow –
to begin
so small,
to grow
with Love,
do you not
have all
you need
to realize
the majestic,
beautiful You?

Can you continue
this loving cycle,
dropping Love
wherever you go –
might it be
needed
all around you –
does not Love
help all to grow?

With a loving heart
can you cultivate,
spreading Love
wherever you go –
are you not
like the tree –
with roots in
the ground,
reaching up
to the sky –
the physical you
with the
Essence of Love?

Does it not take
one drop of Love,
a tiny seed
to begin to grow –
watch Love
take root,
watch Love
persevere –
with Love
there is always,
always Hope.

Add to Hope
one drop of Love,
watch it build,
watch it grow –
With Love
is not all
possible –
with Love
is there not
always Hope?

One little
tiny seed
of Love
is all
it takes
to Know,
to Be,
to realize
how majestic
You Are –
as You Are
Beautiful
Love.

Always Home

No matter
where you travel,
no matter
where you roam –
you are somewhere,
you are everywhere,
with ground
below you
and sky
above you –
are you not
Always Home?

Is Home
not where
your heart
beats,
is it not
where you
feel Love –
it is where
you are
connected
to All
you share
in Love.

Yes, you may
grieve those
who go
before you,
you may miss
the places
that you
have been –
but do you
not feel
the ground
below you,
with sky above –
is there not
Love?

Are you not Home
in this
perfect moment –
can you not
Be right
where you are?
Where You Are
is where
Love Is –
You Are Home
when You Are
Love.

No matter
where you travel,
no matter
where you roam –
you are somewhere,
you are everywhere,
with ground
below you
and sky
above you –
You Are Always,
Always Home.
