The Movement of Love

When you open up
a window,
do you not love to smell
the outside air,
what is the difference
between fresh air
and the air that is
inside –
does not circulating air
help to cleanse
and to release
what has built up
in your house,
what may be interfering
with your Peace?

When the air around you
grows stagnant,
do you not need to
make it move,
an open window,
a floor to sweep
and does it not help
for you to move, too –
as energy is always moving,
might you join in
and begin to clear,
what has built up,
what is weighing,
what do you no longer need –
energy is at the ready,
so breathe it in
and breathe it out,
it is never too early
for spring cleaning,
is this not what transformation
is all about?

Is it not in your
intention,
that you can visualize
each breath of air –
to be fresh,
to be transformative,
to clear out,
to create anew –
is not breathing in Love
the best spring clean
that you can do?

You need not wait
for warmer weather
or for the greening
to begin,
as you are a
creative Be-ing,
breathing in the Love
of All That Is,
does not every breath
bring you closer
to the wonder
of Who You Are?

Breathe in.
Clear out.
Keep it moving,
keep it flowing.
As you move,
as you create,
reveal the Miracle
That Is You.

The Best of Love

In this earthly realm,
is it not hard
to know,
all the roles
you play
or where do outcomes
go,
like in any play
you may see,
might there be
more than one story
going on in a scene –
might you not add drama
and simply be –
the best You
that only You
can Be?

Yes, it is hard
not to expect,
what you think
“should” happen next,
based on your perspectives,
do you not know
them best,
but are there not
myriad lessons,
experiences going on,
for your learning
and for others, too –
do you not often
bring it back to you,
but might you
not know
who is teaching who?

So when all is said
and done,
when you lead with
your open,
loving heart,
have you not fulfilled
what you are
“to do” –
is it not in this
Love,
that you can simply Be –
the best You,
that only You
can Be?

Remember you are both
student and teacher, too.
Learn with Love.
Lead with Love.
The Best of You
Is Love.
Always,
simply,
Love.

The Nature of Love

20180122 XPicture

1/22/18

A stand of trees
in the forest,
do they not share
the nutrients
from the soil
of mother earth,
do not their roots
soak up the water,
running deep or
raining down
from the skies above,
do not the sun’s rays
bring life to each tree
in the forest,
can you not look
at a single tree
and see the forest
that is so alive?

Do you not receive
the same gifts
from mother earth,
does she not connect you
to the trees,
do you not walk upon
the soil,
that gives you nutrients
through food,
is your thirst not quenched
by rivers of water,
does not the sun
bring warming Light,
can you look at yourself
in a mirror
and see all of humanity?

Do you not sense
the support of nature,
are you not part
of nature, too,
does it not help
when you are standing
with others,
who are also
part of You,
as you are all
part of something greater,
can you expand
your once-limited view,
though you may be a
single tree in the forest,
are you not the
forest, too?

Are you not in the soil
that nurtures you,
are you not the water
that is raining down,
are you not the air
that breathes you,
are you not as bright
as the shining sun,
you are strong
as a sturdy tree
that bends when
the wind is so strong,
both individually
and together,
can you celebrate
that You Are One?

You never stand alone.
You Are connected
above and below.
What is Here
is also There.
Yes, always connected
by the Nature of Love.

Butterfly’s Lesson

20180121 XPicture

1/21/18

Do you not marvel
at the beauty
and the Strength
of a butterfly?

Though their wings look
thin and fragile,
do they not navigate
through winds,
erratic breezes –
are butterflies not adept
at flying,
or in stillness,
is there not a more
peaceful vision
than a butterfly
in repose?

Are not its wings
a triumphant banner,
that is raised up
when caterpillar is free –
after changes,
transformation,
do not its wings
symbolize its journey
through each phase
on the way to Be,
a miraculous Butterfly?

Do you not learn
from butterfly’s journey,
to have Faith and Trust
in what will be –
you need not wait
for transformation,
do you not possess
all the of beauty and
Strength that you may need,
are you not able
to navigate situations
that leave you breathless
from the wind –
can you not
still your breath
to let the magic
of your existence
filter in?

Though your beauty
is unique,
as each of you
wear different wings,
is it not your Strength
and Courage
that gives you Faith
to transform again –
if you wish to fly,
to soar,
like butterflies that you see,
can you display your colors
as you unfold,
can you raise your flag
for Love?

Love can fill up
any opening,
it can be the wind
beneath your wings,
might you spread
your wings
and with Love lift up
and Be One
with all that
Love brings?

You need not wait
for growth to happen,
it is happening
as we speak –
do butterflies
not teach you,
that miracles do exist?
Are you not a
beautiful miracle
created from
the Miracle of Love?
With Strength and Love
may you marvel
at the Miracle
of You.

Growing With Love

What pushes you
to change and grow,
are you not sometimes
content with the status quo –
then do you not feel
the current,
tugging you this way
or that,
making you push against
or giving you the opportunity
to let go and flow,
is there not always a choice
with a tug or a pull –
what do you hang on to,
what is good to let go?

Can you be comfortable
with the uncomfortableness
of change,
you may ask for more insight,
you may reach for a dream,
does not the road travelled
come with experiences
to show
that you are always changing
and do not challenges
help you to grow?

When you are pushed,
pulled or stretched,
does not the human
sometimes balk,
change need not be
uncomfortable,
what comes up for you
to see?
Ego loves to hold onto
patterns,
expectations to stay
in place,
but does not each
prickly experience
help you to look
for inner Peace,
if you cannot change
the external,
what reaction might
you seek,
does not each new
experience,
help you to find
the Balance of Love?

Do you not see a different
perspective,
when you come from
inner Strength,
does not Courage help you
to realize,
you are ready to continue
on,
do not experiences
push and pull you,
to see the Truth
of Who You Are –
does not life give you
opportunities
to know that
You Are always,
always Love?

Your perspective
may be clouded
by what is blocking
your view,
can you let go,
might you surrender,
to the beautiful,
magnificent You?

With nothing to prove,
you need not earn
the Love of All That Is –
Love Is Here.
Love Is There.
You Are That.
You Are Love.

There Is Love

There Is Love.

When you search upon
your Journey,
what gets revealed
in all you see,
what is the message
in every teaching –
There Is Love.

Even as you peer
into the darkness,
do you not always find
a Spark of Light,
what illuminates
your presence –
There Is Love.

What is the meaning
behind philosophy,
theology,
classic works you
may have read,
throughout time,
throughout history,
through eternity –
There Is Love.

What does Source
see in You,
only beauty,
only Love,
there is nothing
you need do –
There Is Love.

Can you see Love
in others, too,
looking beyond
the storied past,
do not others
help you to see –
There Is Love.

Can you look for
God,
Source,
Divine,
in every person
place or thing,
when you Know
that All Is Love –
There Is Love.

You Are,
All Is
and
There Is Love.

Live Life Now

cross light in the darkness in your hands

1/18/18

Live life now.

In between the thoughts
and stories
that paint so many
different scenarios
and color what you perceive,
is there not life happening
right at this moment –
can you meet life,
can you Be present,
can you live life
now?

You may not be aware
how often you time travel,
a few moments,
hours,
days,
do you not skip
to the future,
anticipating what will happen
next,
instead of being with You
right now,
do you not replay
what just transpired,
or what happened long ago,
are you not a product
of your memories,
but are You not Here
right now –
live life
now.

Would not your ego
miss the drama
of what it has created
for you,
would you find yourself
filling time,
as that is what you
are accustomed to,
can you see yourself
on a timeline
and be grateful
You Are Here –
does not every minute
feel precious,
when you
live life
now?

Yes there are events
that need thought
and planning,
but does not your mind
add so much more –
can you strip away
the comparisons,
judgements,
the “shoulds” that hide
behind closed doors,
will you not have
so much more energy,
clarity,
and room to
shine your Light,
when you clear out
thoughts that clutter,
when you
live life
now?

Do not fear losing
anything precious,
are you not making room
for Who You Are?
Clear out the cobwebs
of your mind
and look for You
in all you do.
Keep it simple,
keep it flowing,
as you marvel
at every move –
is there not more room
for Life
as You Are Love
right now?

Live Life.
Love Life
by loving you, too.
Right Here.
Right Now.
Love Is Here –
always with You.
