From the Heart

10/21/18

Speak from the heart,
let Love help
make your voice clear,
let it come from a
place of Love,
no matter what
another hears,
you need not always
say it,
but when you lead
with a heart of Love,
can not another
feel it,
as Love is what All
are made of?

Be true to Who You Are,
as you reveal
this to yourself,
your soul knows
all about you,
even as you peel
your layers off,
your heart will
let you know
what resonates,
what does not feel
good,
when you lead with
your heart,
can you let go
of any “shoulds”?

Live from the heart,
sharing precious moments
of Love,
in any present moment,
can you Be the Peace
that you dream of?
You may change
your surroundings,
things may change
everyday,
but as Love is
never-ending,
You Are Always
You
in every way.

Be You
from the heart,
resonate with Love
as Who You Are –
shine your Light
so brightly,
as magnificent as
the sun
and stars.

You Can!

Resistance.

Is resistance
not like a squeaky wheel
that needs some
oil to go,
can you let Love
pave the way
for you to move
past fear
to flow?

You may get
hung up on
old patterns,
some things get
rusty with
no use,
but as you flex
your loving muscles,
can you not gather
energy to knock
things loose?

Is not resistance
when you are fearful,
when you have forgotten
Who You Are,
can you not figure out
what is needed,
you have the Strength
to stretch so far,
with motivation,
with clear intention,
focusing on the Love
that you know
so well,
can you let Love
be the engine,
on the little train
that could?

Let resistance
be your teacher,
look at it with
open eyes,
what layer can you
let go of,
is fear not keeping you
from flying high?
Now look at You
with Love
and let Love be
your guiding Light,
what seems difficult
is easy,
when Love
is with you,
by your side.

Be aware of what
needs tending,
what can you do
to be in the Flow?
Begin with Love
as your motivation
and watch your
beautiful garden grow!

The Comfort of Love

Comfort shows up
in many ways,
you know what makes
you comfortable,
pillow or blankets
that surround you,
warm fleece
or gloves
when you are cold,
childhood food
with loving memories –
something made
just for you,
is comfort
not caring,
a gift of compassion,
is comfort not
when you feel
o so Loved?

Does it not feel good
to give another
comfort,
do you not feel
Loved
when you receive it, too?
Might you pamper
and give yourself comfort,
is it not a gift
when you can
comfort you?

You need not earn
love or comfort given,
comfort and love
is always here with you,
can you not wrap
yourself in it,
giving yourself
a hug,
seeing the beauty
in You.

You can receive it
when it is offered,
but you can also
extend this to you –
what can you do
for you
to feel it,
what helps
you feel Loved
and comfortable?

Wrap yourself up
with Love and
Comfort,
let it help you
feel safe and warm.
You Are Loved,
a cherished Be-ing,
surrounded by
the Comfort of Love.

The Road to Peace

20170114 XPicture2

* 10/18/18 – I am traveling this morning; here is a message from January 2017 *

From 1/14/17

The road to Peace
is steady
and still –
like driving on
a near-deserted road,
driving at night –
when the night
envelopes you with
its star-studded blanket
and you drive on –
freeing your mind,
not looking for
your destination,
just happy to be
right where you are –
in the still of the night.

And is that not
a way to think
about the stillness of Peace –
that is not always still –
as your car rolls along,
past painted white lines
that beat a steady rhythm
as they tic tic by –
yes you notice
you are moving –
but it is movement
with no rush,
no hurry to get
where you are going –
is there not Peace
that flows
in this moving solitude –
when your mind is free
to dance with the stars
while your body
is content to
hold the wheel?

Is Peace not found
in this balance of
earth and sky –
within your body
and your spirit –
when both can work together
to find the stillness
in the movement,
it is not a paradox –
it is where Peace lives
and You Are That.

Peace lies within You.
It is not a destination –
it is a state of mind;
when your mind
is free to be
Who You Are –
no matter
Where You Are.

You Are Peace –
for You Are Love.
Be in the
moving solitude
of Peace.

The Power of Yes

* I am traveling early today. Here is a message from February 2017 *

From 2/09/17

The Power of Yes.

Does not the
Power of Yes
propel you,
create a boost,
a push,
to get you
outside of your
comfort zone –
where growth
and change occur?

As a child,
was this not
referred to as
“growing pains?”
As yes, you may have
some discomfort
with moving in
directions not yet
completely known
or with experiences
that challenge
you to grow.

And as your
body reacts to this
move to Possibility,
this not yet chartered territory –
you may interpret this
as trepidation,
wariness,
or fear –
but is not your body,
sensing a new situation,
only being on alert –
and knowing that
a new experience
is coming –
might it be getting ready
for whatever lies ahead?

Is it not your mind,
your thoughts,
that enjoy the
status quo –
lulling you into thinking
that change or growth
is too uncomfortable,
for you to push
yourself into
something new?

The Power of Yes.

And when opportunity
knocks at your door,
you may not know
all that is
on the other side –
but does not being in
the Power of Yes,
the Energy of Yes –
give you the Strength,
the Courage,
to see what is
on the other side –
moving you forward
to explore?

And is not
All That Is
a part of every
experience –
with every door
you open wide,
are you not always
met with Love –
in or out of
your comfort zone –
for is not all growth
a chance for you
to experience Love
in a limitless
number of ways?

The Power of Yes
is the Power of Love –
propelling you
to experience
Who You Are.

And Who Are You?
In All Ways,
You Are Always
Love.

In the Quiet

20181016 XPicture

10/16/18

In the quiet,
in the still,
can you sense
the rhythm
of your breath,
your heart beats
in time
for you to feel
You,
in the quiet,
in the still.

And these quieting
times
need not be
in absolute silence,
sitting,
meditating,
can you not take
a moment here,
a breath of air,
even when driving
somewhere,
can you pause
to center,
to come back to
You,
in the quiet,
in the still.

And though your
mind,
may not ever feel
still,
is there not space
between
the thoughts that
fill,
may you find Peace
in this Space of
You,
let this Peace,
with Love,
tell you
All Is Well,
your breath,
your heart,
beat the Rhythm
of You –
in the quiet,
in the still.

Always

20181015 XPicture

10/15/18

Always.

I am in the air
that you breathe,
I am in every moment
that you see,
I am in tune
with your heart beat,
is Love not there,
always?

The heart knows
that Love is here,
it may at times feel
broken,
battered,
bare,
but what knows
that I am here –
your heart,
always.

Love Is Eternal,
it never ends,
when you are ready,
Love helps you begin,
tune into you,
into the Love within,
together
we are,
always.

I am You
and You Are me,
connected with Love,
we will always be,
meet me in your
heart,
where Love Is We,
We Are One,
with Love –
Always.

Belonging

20181014 XPicture

10/14/18

Belonging.

As human
is there not an urge,
a longing,
to fit in,
to find your space,
a place where
you think you
could,
should
be –
does not the need to
“belong”,
send you down
some winding
streets,
that may turn
you around,
losing your way,
or second-guessing
what you believe?

Can you take away
the “longing”
and find contentment
with you as
“Be”,
Be-ing You
with the gifts you
bring
to any person,
place or
thing?

Might you not fret
about if a square peg,
fits in a circular
hole,
you are a perfect fit
for Where You Are
in the Greater Whole,
might you accept
Who You Are,
the perfect You
so you may see,
you are aligned
with Truth,
when you accept You
and simply Be.

Belong to You,
You belong
to Love.
Believe.
Be You.
Be Love.

Becoming

20181013 XPicture

10/13/18

Becoming.

When you see
green shoots
in the springtime,
you may know
the flower it
will become,
but after a cold,
dormant winter,
are not these
shoots so
beautiful?

And when a bud
begins to appear,
a hint of color
in its hue,
yes, the flower,
it is becoming,
but do you
not celebrate
the miracle
of growth
for you to view?

And then in spring
or summer’s warmth,
when sun coaxes bud
to open
and show,
the Essence
of the flower
now in its glory,
so beautiful,
has not the flower
always been
a part of each
stage of its
growth,
is it not Be-ing
a flower always,
with no need to wait
to becoming
beautiful?

Behold the beauty
in each cycle,
in each stage
of evolving growth.
Behold the Love
That Is You,
as you are
becoming more
Aware.

The beauty
That Is You,
is always there
for you to see –
relish each step
of your growth,
behold the Journey
and simply Be.

With Ease

20181012 XPicture

10/12/18

Ease into your day.

Might you be aware
when you arise,
to be present with
Gratitude,
might you hold off
thinking
of what you must do –
wondering if the day
will be good to you,
with Ease and Grace,
can you let Love lead,
and fill this morning
space,
with your innate Love
and Gratitude?

Relax your shoulders,
take a loving breath in,
let each breath you take,
remind you of the Love
within,
there is Strength and Courage,
ready at your beck and call
today,
turn up your Light,
shine from within,
will Light not reflect
off another,
as Love shows you
the way?

Ease into your day,
begin with You,
send Love to yourself,
it is a loving thing
to do,
give yourself a pat
on the back,
acknowledge you
for Be-ing You,
in your heart,
you hold the key –
the Key to Peace
is loving you.
