Your Way

“You can go your own way. . . ”

And does not this song,
these words,
remind you that
there are many ways,
many roads,
that lead you
back to where
you started from,
for do not all journeys,
though they may be
unique,
do they not return
to Love,
do they not bring you
Home?

Free choice,
free will,
lets you experience
what you wish,
going your own way
on this unique road
that you are on,
but are there not
many roads that lead
to the awareness
that You Are Love,
a part of All That Is –
do not judge another
for their path to
their knowing,
are there not infinite roads
that always lead you
Home?

“You can go your own way, ”
but this does not mean
you “go” it alone,
for You Are Loved
so very much
along the way.
Can you feel it,
can you sense it,
within you,
all around,
Love walks with you
every step of the way –
how could Love
not be with you,
Love makes up
Who You Are,
so keep going
your own way,
knowing with every
step of your Be-ing –
You Are always,
always Home.

Shifting With Love

Do not opportunities
show up sometimes
in disguise?
Is it not your perception
that does the framing,
often putting situations
in a box,
when you need to expand
upon your thinking,
do you not often need
a push,
or stretch –
is it not comfort
that you fall back on,
might you be resisting
the next step?

There may be discomfort
in the growing,
as you try things on
for size,
yes, there is comfort
in the knowing
how any situation
may come to be –
but as you have traveled
upon your journey,
could you have pictured
where you are now,
have not some of the
greatest gifts
been those you would not
have known to choose?

What shows up to
help you shift
a way of thinking
or a course to take,
you may pull back,
you may retract
as you gather your
innate Strength –
but any challenge
or new perspective
may pave the way
for something new –
for do not new roads,
though they may be
bumpy,
do they not lead you
always back to You?

Be grateful for opportunities
to shift,
to look at yourself anew –
with Love,
embrace the growing,
the ever-expanding
wonder of You!

Seeds of Love

20180418 XPicture

4/18/18

A seed waits in
the soil,
waiting patiently
to grow,
with the right mix of
nutrients,
water,
sun,
will not this seed
emerge from the dirt,
to grow into a
flower,
a bush,
a tree
or whatever produced
this seed?

But is that not
how a seed
remembers,
it need not be told
what to do –
is there not a knowing,
a remembrance,
is it not returning
to its roots –
has not this seed
come from its origin,
a flower,
bush
or tree,
is it not completely whole,
even as the buried seed?

At every step in the
growth process,
are you not You
at your core,
your human mind
craves understanding,
so experiences you
get to explore,
but do not all teachings
point you to finding
what nourishes you
and helps you to grow,
are these not the perfect
conditions –
that You Are Love
and perfectly Whole?

When you focus
your intention
on this Seed of Love
that is your heart,
does not the casing
that surrounds you
drop away
what you no longer need,
are you not able
then to bloom
as you grow,
expand,
as you believe –
that You Are Love
at every stage of growth
and is it not Love
that sets You free?

Love is the seed
within the soil,
Love is the flower
that expands and grows.
Love is each step
of the Journey,
Love is not a destination
where you may go.
Each season or
Cycle of Life
is as precious as
the one before –
Love every step
that you experience
and spread freely
the Seeds of Love.

Choosing Gratitude

20180417 XPicture

4/17/18

Gratitude.

Does not a snowy
and cold
spring day,
help you to appreciate
when the sun’s
warming rays
erase
and melt
the frozen remnants
of winter,
is it not in the dark
that you can see
how bright the Light –
in a world of comparisons,
of choices to be made,
can you choose,
may you Be
Gratitude?

Do not acceptance
and allowance
find their way
from a grateful heart,
of course you have
preferences,
expectations that
creep in,
but do not twists
and turns
help you to learn,
help you grow –
without nudge
or a shove,
would you sometimes
not want to go,
to try something new,
maybe opening Door #2 (smile)
and at every
new juncture,
can you embrace
Gratitude?

When you feel the
resistance,
can you see where
Love flows,
it may take stripping
off layers
that tell the story
of you –
feel the Love at
your center,
find the Joy
in your heart –
and no matter
the circumstances,
keep choosing
Gratitude.

Through change,
throughout transition,
things may be rough
or may be smooth.
Be accepting,
Be allowance,
Be Strength
and Gratitude.

Express Yourself

20180416 XPicture

Express yourself.
You Are Love
expressed.

And can there not be
many expressions
that you have experienced
in your life,
as Love is infinite,
are there not infinite ways
to express Love?
You may not have one
“soul” purpose
in your ever-evolving
experiences on earth,
but is not your
soul’s expression
to purposely express
Love?

Might this present
in the simple expression,
the powerful “I Love You” –
might you see a different
perspective
and send Love to someone
different from you,
when you see Divine Love
in another,
does it not reflect
the Love in You –
when you express Love
are you not expressing
the deepest part of
You?

And yes there may be
a pathway
that lights up,
that appears bright,
when passion rises,
when your heart leaps,
when something brings
you so much Joy,
when you resonate
with purpose,
when you let Love
steer the wheel,
how can you not
express yourself
when You Are
Love expressed?

Express yourself,
in the infinite
Ways of Love.
Shine Your Light,
Be the Light –
as You Are Love
expressed.

An Emergence of Love

20180415 XPicture

Emerge.

Is not what lies dormant
in the winter,
now beginning
to emerge,
is not the wave
of migration,
beginning to move
to find a way,
following the sun,
the warmth,
the Light
that stretches from
an extended sleep –
to waking up,
to emerging,
to Be All
that it can Be?

What lies dormant
in you,
what do you wish
to dust off to find?
What gifts have you
kept to yourself,
that you might
share at anytime,
you have much that you
can offer,
a heart of Love
is waiting to expand,
might you see yourself
in a new way,
in this new season
might you emerge?

Take a chance,
make a leap,
continue growing
steady and true,
check in with your
heart
to see the path
that is right for you –
as you open to
the Truth
of Who You Are,
shining in the Light –
keep going,
keep growing,
embrace the You
that is beginning
to emerge.

And when you think
you are where
you need to be,
you have reached a goal –
is there not always
more growing,
is there not more
knowing,
more ways to play –
when you set your sights
on exploring
infinite ways
to express Love –
is not every moment,
every day,
an opportunity
for you to
emerge?

See the Light.
Be the Light.
Let the Love
in you emerge.
Standing in the
Light of Love,
Be seen.
Be Love.

Everlasting

Is Love not a
healing balm,
do you not look
for Love
when you think
Love has “gone”,
is there not Joy
when you find
they are in your
heart all along,
for is that not where
Love sings its song,
your loved ones are
with you,
is there no stronger
bond –
and there is no end
to Love.

With a thought,
a prayer,
can you not meet
your loved ones there –
they are more than
a memory,
for as Love cannot die,
their Essence of Love
is part of You, too,
much like the sun
in the sky,
you may not always
see it,
but you know the
Light is there,
you cannot extinguish
this loving Light –
and there is no end
to Love.

Yes, you miss their
physical presence,
you would love to
have them back
in this physical form,
with what you know
back intact,
but is there not also
a familiar knowing
that beats within
your heart,
is not the Love
still here,
even when you think
you are apart,
does not their spirit
live on,
finding ways to say,
“I’m here!”
Your loved ones are
always with you –
as there is no end
to Love.

Love heals.
Love holds
the Everlasting Light
of Love.
From now
until forever –
there is no end
to Love.

An Opening for Love

20180413 XPicture

4/13/18

In the absence of
fear,
worry,
doubt,
or strife,
is there not more
space
to bring Joy in
your life?
With Peace surrounding
you,
does ego not look
to see where to
fill in
where you may have
unhooked
old patterns,
beliefs,
that now feel
out of date,
are you not ready
to spring forward
with the space
you have made?

It may feel
quite different,
having a lightness
in your step,
old patterns may
not want you
to open all doors
quite yet –
but with Gratitude
for all experiences,
does not Peace ensue
when you know –
you are far more
than what your
human perspective
may believe –
You Are Love,
You Are Loved,
so why not let
that Love flow?

Let Love fill up
all spaces
where ego once
ruled,
you need not have fear
looking over your shoulder
so near,
with Love as your guide,
with Joy in your heart,
can you not get used
to this way of Be-ing,
is it not a new start?

Choose Love.
Be Love.
Believe the Love
That You Are.
In every space
you can open –
you will always
find Love.

This Loving Moment

20180412 XPicture

4/12/18

Is not acceptance
Being Love,
Being You,
in every moment
now?

And with the magical
power,
of unconditional Love,
might you Love
all of you –
for do not all moments
manifest in this
moment now,
yes, your story
has a past,
a present
and future not yet
here,
but your Essence of
Love,
of Oneness,
is rolled up in this
moment now –
can you accept
this moment
of You,
Loving You,
in this moment
now?

There may be past
hurts and trials,
that have shaped
the path you are on,
you may have worries
of the future,
not yet known
in your present mind –
but throughout this
timeline that you
experience,
while here on earth
in the everyday,
does not your soul rejoice
in this moment now?

Is that not why
when you are present,
do you not feel
the most alive –
is there not energy,
a current
of Love that is there
for you to feel,
when You Are One
with your Being,
in this Loving Moment
now,
does not acceptance
become effortless,
while in this present
moment now?

You Are Here,
You Are Love,
in this moment
and the next.
Take baby steps,
jump off and soar,
you need not know
your next step.
Relish every moment
as you accept
All parts of You –
because Here
in this moment,
You Are always,
always Love.

Listen With Your Heart

20180411 XPicture

4/11/18

Listen with your heart.

Yes, the heart may leap
at what it feels passionate
about,
for is not the heart
a driving force
that may help you step
outside your comfort zone,
but even as your heart
may lead,
can you also hear
what it receives –
listen with your heart.

You turn your ear
to an inner voice,
do you not question
at times,
what is it that
you hear,
when you are unsure
if it is You
or if it is noise,
can you still the mind
and tune into
what is always here –
and listen with
your heart.

You need not analyze,
or prove something right –
if your heart speaks
gently,
or makes you sit
upright,
if there is Love in
the message,
if there is Truth
in what you feel,
will not your Guiding Light
shine the way
for you to see,
might you trust yourself
and find inner Peace –
does Peace not come
when you listen
with your heart?

Your mind may fight
this inner knowing,
this steady beat
that is always there
when you are ready
to receive,
for is Love not the answer
to the questions
that you seek –
is Love not the language
when you listen
with your heart?

Let your heart
beat the rhythm
of Love.
Get in sync.
Play along.
Listen always
with your heart.
