Being Present

Be present today.

And as each moment
of any day
is a Gift of Love,
can you Be Love
in any second,
minute or hour,
as the day unfolds –
can you Be
a Gift of Love
by Be-ing in the
presence of
All That Is –
by Be-ing You,
by Be-ing
present today?

You have lists
to make sure
that you are where
you need
to be,
to do,
yes, you take comfort
in planning
to make sure
that all is well,
as you cross your “t”s
and dot your “i”s –
but can you
take comfort
that there is a
Flow of Love
that surrounds
any plans you make –
is it not in this Love
That All Is Well –
no matter the plan,
the “what to do”,
as you center
into You,
as You Are Present
in this moment
Now –
hello, are you
present today?

And is not presence
showing up
into the awareness
of Who You Are –
it is not
tuning out,
or withdrawing into,
or stepping away –
is not Be-ing present
stepping into the Love
that connects you
to All That Is –
in the realization
that you are not alone
as you walk through
this Journey of Life –
that You Are supported,
You Are Loved –
every step of the way?

Is this not the awareness
that you seek to find –
does it not dwell
in this moment,
as You Are present
this second,
this minute,
can you Be present,
Be-ing the Presence of Love
right now?

You Are a present.
You Are a
Gift of Love.
Open your gifts.
Be Who You Are.
Be Present in the
Love That You Are.

In this moment,
beyond time –
You Are Limitless
Love.

Feeling Love

20171016 XPicture

10/16/17

As a human,
do not your emotions
guide you along
the road of Life –
do not emotions
bring to the surface
your reactions
and what you feel?

Yes, you have heard
“you need to feel
it to heal it,”
yes, emotions
your attention snag –
can you look at what
they wish to show you,
so you may accept
them all in Love?

It is human nature
to push the feelings,
the emotions
back where they “belong” –
do you not judge,
do you not think
that some emotions
should just be “gone?”
But are these
barometers
of your feelings –
not part of you
that wishes to be seen?

Is there not freedom,
is there not a releasing,
when you step into
Who You Are –
when you accept
every emotion,
every struggle,
or accomplishment?
Can you Love
and accept every feeling,
that comes up
for Love from you –
can you be Gratitude
and with Strength and Courage,
can you Love all
corners of You?

Do not fear
the intensity
that emotion
may wish to bring –
can you open
the window,
open the door
and invite
your feelings in?

What do they show you,
what do they teach you,
what other window
do they open wide –
as you let Love
transmute each feeling,
surrounding you
with Love and Light.

As the walls fall
down around you –
are you not free,
with no need to hide –
are you not a
perfect balance
with your soul
and your human side?

Hand in hand,
can you walk together –
are you not
the Perfect Team?

Love each feeling.
Love each emotion.
Love it All
to find Peace.

Love Knows

Believe.
Trust.
Let Love Flow.

You wish to help another –
“what can I do”,
“what can I fix?”
Thinking you
or they know
what needs to
happen next,
but does not
learning,
does not healing,
sometimes not
move in linear ways –
can you
believe,
trust
and let Love Flow?

There may not be
a pattern to follow,
a sequence that
makes sense –
you may wish a
certain outcome,
you may prefer
another result,
but does your soul
not know its purpose,
even when you
shake your head
and doubt –
do you not join
in the process,
when you
believe,
trust
and let Love Flow?

Does not Love
know where to go,
do not miracles
come from Love –
but do you not
define a miracle
as what you think
cannot be done –
a miracle is not
overcoming
something you think
you no longer need –
is not the miracle
when you
believe You,
trust You,
as you
let Love Flow?

Can you step into
acceptance,
can you let up
your desire
to resist –
what is Love here
to show you,
that you find so hard
to believe is true –
is not the
Miracle of Love –
that You Are Loved
with no conditions,
with no strings –
is it not here,
do you not feel it,
as you
believe,
trust
and let Love Flow?

Love Knows.
Love Trusts.
Love Believes
in You.

Love helps you
to remember,
You Are That
as You Are Love.

Playground of Life

20161014 XPicture

I am traveling today. Please enjoy this post from a year ago!

10/14/16

A playground
is a wonderful haven
of learning opportunities
for the child
to explore;
how to maneuver,
to play
to climb,
to swing –
and as there
are other children
experiencing the playground,
are there not
a multitude
of opportunities
that allow the children
to interact with
each other,
to experience
the cause and effect
of human behavior?

And are there
not usually adults
who can intervene,
lend a hand,
to help them
work out
when there
may be conflict,
hurt feelings,
or a bruised knee?

And are you not
also playing on this
Playground of Life –
figuring out
how to maneuver,
to play,
to experience,
as you explore
the life you are living?

And when there
is conflict,
or you look
for direction
on how to proceed
or how to act
in any given situation,
you can rely on others
who can
lend a hand.

But as you are spirit
having a human experience
in this Playground of Life,
does not your
body give you
indications of
what feels right,
what feels uncomfortable,
or unsettled,
or adds to the drama
of what you are
experiencing?

And as always,
check in with your heart –
what brings you peace?
As you learn to trust
your inner guidance,
you can always
check in
with the spirit side
of You
as your humanness
explores the Playground of Life,
giving you a multitude
of opportunities
that allow you
to interact
and experience
the cause and effect
of human behavior.

Keep the “play”
in the Playground.
Experience the Joy.
And when conflict arises,
go to your heart –
and Be Love
to find Peace.

Find Love

20171013 XPicture

10/13/17

Take a breath,
take a moment,
to still your
active mind –
there has been
some heavy lifting
in this life
and in this
world.

Can you feel
a shift is happening
as cracks break open
to reveal,
what asks for healing,
what needs mending,
will not Love
help All to heal?

With all of the
distractions,
can you keep
your eyes on Love –
yes, there are times
when eruptions seem
to happen everyday –
much has been hidden,
that now is ready
to be seen
and to be heard –
yes, it often brings up
more questions –
what to do
and where is Peace?

And is not always
the answer –
Find Love.

Beyond the fiery
reactions,
beyond the exasperated
sighs,
you may not find
agreement,
as the human drama
unfolds,
but are these not plays
that are acted out
in your own space
or on the world stage –
are they not
leading you
to Find Love?

Is Love not in
the quiet,
in the space
that fills your heart?
Is Love not in
a smile
you give freely
just because?
When you acknowledge
that another
is part of You
and of the Whole –
is that not
where you
Find Love?

As you feel Gratitude
for all experiences
you have had –
does not Gratitude
lift you up
from thinking things
are happening “to” you –
are you not here
for the opportunities
to find the hidden gem –
are you not looking
for Treasure
when you search
and Find Love?

Is Love not like
the pot of gold
at the rainbow’s end –
you do not know
if you can believe it,
but you keep searching
again and again –
once you realize
it is not far away,
or out of sight,
will you not see –
that Love
is right where
You Are,
when you shine
your own Light?

Take a breath,
take a moment
and breathe in
your Light of Love.

Here You Are.
See You.
Trust You.
Find Love.

A Voice for Love

20171012 XPicture

10/12/17

Does not Truth
come bubbling up
to the surface,
often exposing
what was false –
sometimes it is
hard to look at what
comes up to heal.

It may take Courage
to speak your Truth,
it may take Strength,
to steady your voice,
but does not
the sound of silence,
one day begin
to roar?

In the dark,
you may back up
into corners
to feel safe –
but with the lights
turned up bright,
do you not see others
by your side –
let the Light
illuminate
a common cause,
no need to fight –
for by speaking Truth,
seeing Light expose
what has been hiding
in plain sight –
with open eyes
and open hearts,
can you shine
your Light
and let Love heal?

It may feel chaotic
when the lights
turn up,
exposing what is
hard to see,
but is it not Love
that gives Strength
to Truth,
giving Voice to the
Authentic Self –
does it not take Courage
to look in the mirror
and see what is reflected
back to You?

So use your Voice
to speak of Love.
Open your eyes
to look for Truth.
Do not be afraid
to peer into the
dark,
does darkness only exist
in the absence of Light?

Shine your Light
so All can see.
Expose the Truth
that rises up
to the Light.
Love Is the energy
that can transmute
All,
for is not All
looking for Love?

And as All Is One,
when you Love One,
do you not Love All?

Shine your Light.
Let Love Heal.

With Love,
always,
with Love.

Always Ready, Love

20171011XPicture2

10/11/17

You are born ready.

Ready for what?
For myriad experiences
that come your way.

When you listen,
is there not a knowing,
even when your
human brain resists –
is there not a
gentle tug,
asking you to leap,
even when you fear
that you may fall,
but does not Love
keep you going,
guiding you
through it all –
can you trust that Love
is always there,
supporting
and loving You?

To feel “ready”,
do you not think
you need to figure
everything out –
can you step outside
your mind
and step into the
Experience of You –
can you move from
planning outcomes,
to the Journey
along the way –
finding Joy in
what Lights you up,
letting your heart
lead the way?

Yes, you may trust
the process,
but can you also
Trust you?
Are you also not
born Knowing,
as you remember
what to do –
it may be overwhelming
when you see
the Limitless You –
but ask your questions
to your Self
and let Love show you,
You.

You need not
be “ready”,
for does that not
connotate an end –
you need not finish
something
to get “ready”
to begin.

You exist in the
Flow of Love,
that is always
ready for you
to jump in,
to then realize
you are already
swimming
in a supportive
Sea of Love –
instead of swimming
upstream,
can you float with
the waves of Love,
trusting the knowing
that you are always
ready,
to receive Gifts of Love?

Know.
Trust.
Believe in
You.

That You Are Here
Is
You Are Love.

Always ready,
always Love.
