A Journey of Love

20170930 XPicture

9/30/17

When you look
or ask
for answers,
do you not
expect them to come
in an instant,
in a flash,
so short is the attention,
with the expectation
that all information
is at your fingertips –
in a linear world
are these not rules
that usually work
in this way?

In the human world,
you search,
you seek,
you find the answers
to your questions –
it is a very active role,
but as you are spirit, too,
as your soul,
your Higher Self,
has information
you wish to hear,
is there not a receptive space
that you can access
to receive?

And sitting in the silence
is the perfect place
to start,
but is there not access,
is there not possibility
in any moment everyday?

When you are open
to receiving,
do not puzzle pieces
fall into place –
the right person
that you talk to,
a thought that
“pops” into your head,
a book you dust off
finally to open –
are there not infinite ways
to help you
find direction,
open doors
that you thought
might be closed –
when you let go
into the flow,
tapping into
your own soul?

Do you not “know” it
when you feel it,
when inspiration comes
and feels so close –
like a thread
loose before you,
if you pull
what might come next?
There is delicious
anticipation,
you may not know
yet where it leads –
but can you be patient
in the knowing
that throughout it all –
All Is Well?

There is a balance
being human,
being Spirit,
both at once –
the human side
has been the driver,
following a human map –
can you let go
of the wheel
and trust Spirit
to take the lead,
letting you take in
the scenery,
with gleeful anticipation
at what may happen next –
can you share
the journey
on this Road Trip
you call life –
can you settle back
and let Spirit
be the driver
for awhile?

Let Go.
Step back.
Look around,
what do you see –
able to take in
what once was
moving too fast
to see?

When you are focused
on the destination,
do you not miss
stops along the way?

Share the road.
Experience the Journey.
You Are Love
and You Are Free.

The Presence of Love

20170929 XPicture

9/29/17

Can you Be the
Presence of Love
today?

And what would that
feel like,
smell like,
sound like,
look like,
taste like –
yes, you experience
your day
with the physical senses,
but would you not
invite in,
expand,
the Presence of Love
that You Are?

And does not part
of you gasp,
thinking “how can I
be Love all day!” –
and is that not
the first judgement
that the human side
of you
is so quick to
point out –
the “can and cannots”,
the “yes, buts”,
as the analytical brain
wishes to weigh in,
to control the situation,
to insure a certain outcome,
but –
can you Be
the Presence
of Love today?

And let us pose
this as a statement –
so that no thought
is needed –
Be the Presence
of Love today –
and with no time pressure,
does not this statement
feel different in its energy,
is not the
State of Be-ing,
something you
as a human being,
do all day?

When you go from
human being
to Spirit being,
to only Be-ing –
is there not Peace
Be-ing in the
Presence of Love?

And is not
Be-ing in the
Presence of Love,
as You Are Love,
is this not a statement
for you to Be –
Be You,
Be Love,
Be Peace –
and moving to this
State of Being,
this Presence of Love,
does it not feel natural
to expand to
this Place of Peace –
this part of you
that sometimes
is hard to sense
with the physical senses
as those are often
barraged with input
from this busy,
physical world?

And there need not Be
a question for you
to Be Where You Are –
you may set the
intention,
you may become
aware,
That You Are
the Presence of Love.

Be Aware.
Be Present.
Be the Light
of Love
that shines
through You.
Experience the
Presence of Love
That Is Here.
That Is You.
That Is Love.

Turtle’s Lesson

20160928 XPicture

*Note – please enjoy this post from one year ago! I have an early appointment today.

9/28/16

A turtle
sits on a log, sunning,
soaking up the
sun’s rays
even as he
wears his
protective shell –
he stretches out
all of the
parts he can
to feel the
warming rays.

His journey
to this log
was slow,
methodical,
as Turtle
can teach you
a lot about time,
purpose,
determination,
focus.

When turtle
is finished
on the log
he moves toward
and slips into
the nearby water.

And then feet
that were awkward,
even if steady,
on the land,
pull through
the water
like the flippers
on a diver,
as turtle
moves through
the water,
free of the
heaviness of its shell,
moving freely
in this aquatic realm,
it is almost
effortless –
he is free.

And you wonder
why turtle
would crawl
out of the water,
onto land,
where it appears
he has to work
so much harder
to get where
he is going.

Maybe turtle
doesn’t think
or worry about time –
as Turtle teaches
you to be
“steady as you go.”

And as there
are two sides to Turtle –
so do you
walk along
on your journey
in this Life –
soaking up
the sun when you can,
moving about your day,
with purpose,
determination,
focus –
until you
move inward,
maybe sitting in the silence,
or immersing yourself
in an activity you love,
that brings you Joy –
when you forget
about time
and effortlessly move
into this flow
of dreaming,
creating,
being.

And in this moment
are you not like
the turtle in the water –
merging the
two sides of You?
You Are
both physical and spiritual.

Let each side
come together
to help you
through this Life –
feeling the freedom
that Is within You always,
as you remember
to move with the Flow,
the Flow of Love
that resides
within You –
helping you
move effortlessly.

You Are Free.
You Are Free!

A Gateway to Love

20170927 XPicture

9/27/17

Focus on the heart.

You hear this
in meditation.
Is this not
the Gateway to Love
in the body,
a place to put
your focus,
to raise your
vibration,
for the heart
is more
than an organ,
a muscle,
though that is
a most important job –
when you focus
on the heart,
does it not activate
the healing
vibration
of Love?

And is this not
the perfect place
to Be –
to set your intentions
with your heart engaged,
is there not a boost,
a spark,
when you create
with your heart
and not your head?

As all hearts
are connected
to this Web of Love
and as you wish
to connect
to Love,
to Source,
your Higher Self,
your loved ones dear –
do not all speak
this Language of Love,
that you feel,
that you know,
That You Are?

You may “try”
to clear out thoughts
that are weighing
you down,
you may seek
to raise your consciousness
to another realm –
does it all not begin
when you focus
on your heart,
as you open,
as you expand
this path to Love?

Love is not a place
where you must go.
Love is within,
Love is without.
To Be in
this flow,
of Peace,
of Love,
yes, focus
on the heart
and Be a Gateway
to Love.

Can not others get
a glimpse,
feel the wave
of Love –
when with open heart
you shine your Light –
will there not be
a stirring,
as hearts wake up –
reminding All
to focus
on the heart
and remember Love.

Focus.
Remember.
There Love Is
and
There You Are.
Open
the Gateway
to Love.

A Bridge to Love

20170926 XPicture

9/26/17

When you wish
to feel grounded,
can you not
visualize a tree –
firmly rooted
in the earth,
but reaching for
the stars up high?

Are you not like
this wooden bridge
that connects
mother earth
to the sky above –
do you not center,
do you not know Strength,
are you not a conduit
for Love?

Can you embrace
both ground
and sky,
are you not a part
of here
and there –
and when you wish
to feel at Peace,
fully grounded,
is it not always
through Love?

Your limbs may sway
when it is windy,
some branches break,
some branches grow –
but your roots
are firmly grounded,
with trunk so strong
do you not still grow?

There is power,
there is majesty
in a tree
so tall and strong –
can you stand tall,
feet so grounded,
with heart open
to it All?

Can you be a
Bridge of Love,
secure in both
worlds at once?
You are human,
You Are Spirit –
centered by
the Flow of Love.

Ground and sky.
Here and There.
Is it not Love
that connects it All?

As You Are Love,
stand tall –
and Be a majestic
Bridge of Love.

Safe and Loved

Multi-racial children hug eachother

9/25/17

You Are Safe
and You Are Loved.

For the Little One
in you,
who kicks and screams
when something new,
who wants to test
how far to go,
until your hug
brings Peace,
brings Love –
do you not soothe
the Little One,
saying,
You Are Safe
and You Are Loved?

For the defiant Teen
in you,
that questions everything
you do,
this one is creative
and pushes you,
but like Little One,
needs much love, too –
no matter the attitude,
does not Teen
need assurance, too?
Yes, You Are Safe
and You Are Loved.

And hello to you,
the Grown-up one,
who you think
the answers,
you “should” know,
but are you not
the same
as Little One
and Teen,
all looking for Love
and Strength
to come in?

Can you not all
join hands,
link arms,
Be One,
with all of the
aspects of You
that wish to feel
safe and loved?
As you accept
and Love
all parts of you
that want the same,
do you not see
that others
around you
want this, too?

Can you embrace
the Little Ones,
the Teens,
the Grown-ups, too?
Do not the souls
of All
know what Love
can do?

Can you shine
your Light and Love
to All,
that says,
“I Love You?”

No matter who
you “think” you are –
You Are Love
and
I Love You.

You Are Safe
and You Are
always, always
Loved.

A Question of Love

20170924 XPicture

9/24/17

How do you experience
Love?

Does Love not
catch a ride
with Joy –
bubbling up
with effervescence,
Love is there
at the corners
of a smile,
is not Joy
behind belly laughs
that clear a
beautiful space
for Love?

Does not Love
call on Strength
and Courage
to help you
walk across
a tightrope,
as you go
from here to there,
overcoming
fear and worry,
to look ahead
and not look down,
as you
walk with Love
one step at a
time?

Does not Love
answer the call
when Gratitude
rings its bell,
is there not
a direct line
to Love,
when Gratitude
opens the door
to your heart,
to Love,
to All That Is –
is not to Be
in Gratitude,
to Be
in Love?

Is there not
more room
for Love
when Humility
clears out
any clutter
that is not needed,
is not true
to Who You Are –
does not Humility
strip out
what you no
longer need
to prop you up –
do you not
stand tall
Be-ing the Love
That You Are?

And do not
Love and Peace
walk hand-in-hand,
as you know Love,
do you not also
know Peace?
Is Peace
not a signal
that you know
All Is Well,
is Peace not
the Knowing
that you are
so very, very
Loved?

And is not
that Knowing
the answer
to the question
that you seek –
how do you experience
Love?

Be the Love
That You Are.
So Loved,
what Love,
You Are.
