Circle of Love

Form a circle.
Gather ’round.
Who do you see
in your Circle of Love?
They may be near
or far away –
across the miles,
or Loved Ones
that you will see
one day,
but are All
not here,
circling around
your grateful heart,
for does not your
Circle of Love
surround you, too?

Place settings may change,
friends come and go,
traditions may stay,
some are memories past,
you may wonder at times,
“Where am I to sit?”
There is always a place
in the Circle of Love.

Form a circle.
Gather ’round.
Is it not your heart
that forms
the Circle of Love?
Do you not begin
with Love,
letting your heart expand,
who can you surround
with your Circle of Love –
you need not physically
be at the table
or feast,
to partake in the bounty
of a Circle of Love.

Form a circle,
now let it expand,
yes, you make room
in your Circle of Love –
there is always a place
for you to Be,
join hearts,
feel the Love
that surrounds you now –
come sit at the table
of the Circle of Love.

Form a circle.
Gather ’round.
Hearts connecting
in Gratitude,
always connected
with Love.

A Journey Within

11/22/17

You wish to open doors
to see what is on
the other side,
is this not what
awareness is –
an inkling,
a knowing,
a remembering,
that bubbles up
from deep within –
each door you open
invites you in
to remember
another aspect
of You,
until you become
aware
that You already exist
from here to there.

There are no doors
or walls that divide
the you that is
remembering
the You inside,
even if you cannot understand
through your mind –
do you not search,
read and pursue
this Journey within?

What once was
four walls
is now open to
All That Is –
does not your
soul rejoice
as you remember
You?

Be patient.
Be a student.
Be a teacher.
Be it All.

Soak up what resonates,
discard what doesn’t fit.
You have all the time
you need,
as time does not
exist.

There is no end to what
you have come to Know –
You Are Love,
made from Love
and You Are Loved So!

A Quilt of Love

Love it all.

Being human can be like
a rollercoaster ride,
with emotions that are felt,
sometimes up
and sometimes down,
at times intense,
sometimes you are numb,
you may feel Joy
or deep regret –
what a spectrum
of experiences
that can vary
in a day,
in a life –
Love it all.

You wish to understand
as you travel upon
this Journey,
searching for meaning,
to know why
did you do this
or they do that –
have not all of
your experiences
brought you to
where you are
right now –
Love it all.

You are unique
as you are human,
with experiences
just for you,
but when you look
a bit more closely,
do not others
feel this, too –
can all not learn
from what is different,
makes you take notice,
then do you not find –
at your core,
do not all seek Love
and in the looking –
Love it all.

You weave a tapestry
of color,
but are you not part
of a bigger quilt,
each section tells
a story,
are you not a beautiful
part of the Whole?
Is there not comfort
in the Knowing
that this quilt
is made from Love –
Love is what connects you,
it is what holds you
all together –
Love it all.

What you see
in another
is a reminder
they are You –
can you open
up your heart,
to Love them
and Love you, too –
you can change,
you can remain,
but there is healing
when you see,
all of your experiences
bring you to You,
so you can
Love it all.

You Are Precious.
You Are Loved,
wrapped in the
Quilt of Love.
See the Love
in Who You Are –
Love it All.

Amazing Love

“. . . was lost,
but now
I’m found . . . ”

And do not these words
from a familiar hymn
speak to an awareness,
a knowing of one’s self,
but might we remind you,
you are never really
“lost?”

Is not feeling lost
an element of
a human perspective,
an orienting
to time and space,
when familiar to your
surroundings,
you may feel at home,
when much around you
appears different,
do you not sometimes
feel lost?

When going through
many changes,
you may not recognize
yourself,
or might you get “lost”
in layers of story
and beliefs?

What part of you
seeks to be seen,
to be found,
be made aware –
what feels like home,
what honors All
That You Are –
can you find
that place of knowing,
the sweet spot
that Is You –
that once was lost
but now is found,
is it not Love
that leads you Home?

As you strip away
the layers
to find the Truth
of Who You Are,
your Love shines brightly,
when you peel away
the story that surrounds you,
with clearer eyes
can you see
how amazing
you truly are –
“was blind,
but now
I see . . .”

With Grace,
with Strength and Courage,
You Are Always,
Always Love.

Never lost,
always found.
There You Are!
You Are Home.

Love Heals

Love heals.

Yes, hearts can break,
feel sad,
can mourn,
but can not
your beautiful heart expand
to tenderly,
lovingly,
fill each crack
with the healing balm
of Love?
Love heals.

In the human duality,
yes, the heart can play
many roles,
going through cycles,
feeling full,
feeling loss,
as it is the center
of your Be-ing –
but do these experiences
not give you the
opportunity
to see beyond
what is
or is not?
Love heals.

With Gratitude,
does Love not fill you,
lift you up,
filling in the spaces
you thought were empty,
healing wounds
you thought were ignored –
does Love not see you
as You Are –
a magnificent Be-ing
of Love expressed –
when you see You
through the Eyes of Love –
Love heals.

Yes, your human heart
may sometimes
feel worn and battered
from the ups and downs
of the experience of life,
but with Strength and Courage,
can you not expand
the heart and soul
of Who You Are –
to experience the Love,
the Heart of You,
that nurtures,
that cradles you
in its loving arms –
is this not when
the healing begins?
Love heals.

See you
with the
loving heart
of You.

Love fills.
Love soothes.
Love heals.

A Breath of Gratitude

Gratitude.

And does not Gratitude
flow on every breath
that you take,
for as you breathe,
are you not breathing in
Gratitude?

Is not the breath
where Gratitude begins
while in this experience
here on earth,
yes, there are times
when the earthly experience
leaves you less than
grateful,
but is there not
a sweetness,
an arriving,
a lifting,
when Gratitude
finds its way
back to your heart?

In Gratitude,
can you not
let go,
is there not relief
that begins to flow,
do you not experience
acceptance,
when you allow Gratitude in,
when defenses are down,
when you can smile,
look around
and feel the Gratitude
That Is You,
are you not lifted up,
does Love not expand
on the wings,
in the energy
of Gratitude?

With Love and Gratitude
can you not fly,
even the sky
is not the limit –
there is no limit
to You,
did not Love
breathe your first breath,
does Love not exist
beyond your last?

Are you not eternally
Love and Gratitude?

In Gratitude,
may you accept
and allow
All That Is –
and That Is You!

You Are Love.
What Gratitude!

Welcome Love

Open arms.

When you visualize
open arms,
is this not a symbol
of inviting in,
of welcoming –
please come in
and sit down,
you are welcomed
with open arms.

And is not an
open door
another way to say,
“I am here”,
does not an open door
let others know
you are available,
accessible,
come in,
sit down,
welcome in.

Is there not comfort
in welcoming,
with open arms,
with hearts
full of Love,
do open arms
not symbolize
acceptance,
belonging,
does not this symbol
of coming together,
of a connection made,
help to reverse
the feeling of
separation –
do open arms
not welcome you
Home?

And does not this feeling
of Coming Home,
happen when Love arrives
with open arms –
this familiar place,
this loving space,
where you feel welcome,
where There Is Love,
when open hearts
connect as One,
when you open doors
with open arms?

Welcome Love
with open arms.
You make the connection
when you give or receive.
Invite Love in,
sprinkle Love throughout.
Welcome Love.
Welcome You.
Welcome Home.
