Being Light

Be the Light,
keep it steady,
keep it strong,
sing it acapella,
or in harmony,
when other
s sing
along,
you may be one candle
flickering,
or a beam of Light
that lights the way,
Be the Light,
Be Love,
Be bright,
today.

Be the Light,
with Love will others
not know
and feel their own
Light,
when they reflect
Love’s warming glow,
feel it open your
heart,
it cannot help but
spread,
Be the Light,
Be Love,
go with Love
where you are
led.

Be the Light,
feel it deep
within your soul,
even when distracted
or busy,
check in often,
do you not know –
you hold the space,
for Love to have
a voice,
there are a thousand
ways to sing it,
at any moment,
in any place.

Be the light,
keep it steady,
keep it strong –
sing it alone
or with others,
in Light
and Love
is where You
belong.

Believing Joy

Believe in Joy.

Does not a child
in any moment,
find where Joy
loves to play?
Is there not,
within You,
a loving Force
that finds a way,
to let Joy bubble
up to see,
what might delight you
or laugh uproariously –
can you give in
to your true Essence,
and let Joy
come out to
play?

It need not be
from your surroundings,
it may make no
sense
to your adult mind,
but what tickles
your fancy,
what makes you laugh
every time,
Joy may be an
appreciative gesture,
a perfect cup
of your favorite tea,
is it not when your
heart
is full of wonder –
that you allow Joy
with you to Be?

Believe in Joy,
even on days
when it is hard
to sense,
be open to the
potential
that Joy is with you
in any moment,
and when your heart
is full
as the moon that
shines above,
with Gratitude,
invite Joy to play,
with delight
and wonder,
Joy is Love.

Glowing

Sit by the fire,
feel the warmth
surround your
toes,
but are you
not mesmerized
by the fire’s
welcome glow,
is it not the Light
you are drawn to,
be it decorated
tree
or stars at night,
does not a season
make an entrance
with a moon that is
full and bright?

When you think things
are the darkest,
is there not a
flicker of Light,
does not hope
and Love,
lighten your heart
at any time,
what brings Joy
to your heart,
what makes you smile
and light up your
face,
can not laughter,
Light,
and Love,
bring you Peace
in any place?

You may be trying out
new traditions,
you may be pondering
Who You Are,
like the seasons,
you are always changing,
yet you are as constant
as the stars,
find yourself in
every flicker
of the Light
that shines in
You,
turn it up,
let yourself see,
your Glow of Love,
the Magnificent You.

Angel Wings

12/21/18 – I am traveling early today, so here is a post from 12/24/2016

From 12/24/16

Listen closely.
Can you not hear,
even sense
the soft beat
of angel wings?

And have not
all of you
been blessed with
the presence of angels –
acts of kindness
and giving –
in the form of friends,
even strangers,
or in situations
that could not
be explained?

And do you
not recognize
what you would call
angelic qualities
within another –
a loving person,
a sleeping child –
you can see
an expression of
Pure Love
on their face –
is it not the face
of unconditional Love
that you would
call “angelic”?

And how are
you able to
sense,
feel,
and see
these expressions
of Pure Love –
do they not
resonate with
a loving chord
that plays within
your heart?

And yes,
in this earthly realm,
is it not hard to
sense angelic love
at times?

So – listen closely.
Can you not hear,
sense,
the soft beat
of angel wings?
Would you not
be surrounded
by the gift of angels,
so you may
feel the presence
of unconditional Love?

Is there not
a knowing
when you have
been touched
by an angel,
no matter
what form
an angel may take?

And as You Are
connected
to All That Is –
do you not feel
the Love of the Divine
in every beat
of angel wings
that resonates
within your heart?

Let the Love
of Angels
remind you of
the Love That You Are.

Pure
Angelic
Love.

A Knowing Paradox

Knowing.

Life can seem like
a gathering
of things that
you can know,
you work at learning,
figuring,
analyzing,
is this not a way
to chart your
growth?

Do not confuse knowledge
with Knowing,
can you not sense
the difference
between those?
One uses your mind,
one is One
with your heart –
you may believe
both,
but trust what
you Know.

And is it it not
in knowing
that Love has
your back,
can you move
deeper,
and let go of
even that –
is there not trust
in surrender,
when you can gently
let go,
to know that you
are covered,
even when you
do not know?

Might you get comfortable
with “I don’t know”,
yes, at first,
it may seem like
a scary place
to go –
but as you let life
move through you,
as you Know
that All Is Well,
is there not possibility
in “I don’t know”,
as you show up
for what life
unveils?

“I don’t know”
lets you Be open,
to what life may
bring your way –
and in the Knowing
that You Are Love,
meet life
with Love,
each and
every day.

A Place of Love

Going Home.

You have homes
that are of origin,
the place where
you first lived
as a baby sweet,
home may be where
you grew up
with friends,
through awkward stages,
with secret pacts
to keep,
home may be
an adopted area,
that you now lovingly
call Home –
is not Home where
you feel you belong,
a place to return to
after you roam?

There is a phrase
that you can never
go home,
that memories made
are memories gone –
but as Love keeps
the home fires burning,
is Love not the fuel
that brings Home
to you?

Are you not Home
in every moment,
it is not a place
that you need to stand,
let your memories
bring up emotion,
then follow your heart
to the unbreakable
strand,
is it not Love that
brings you back
to whatever Home
means to you –
and might you see
that you belong
Everywhere
as Everything
is within You?

Going Home
is not one place,
it is your
familiar
Place of Love –
return to your
heart,
come Home to
Love,
it is what You
are made of.

Riding Waves

12/18/18

You see how vast
is the ocean,
are you not in awe
of the power
it holds,
it reaches from one
shore to another,
so wide you cannot
see where it ends,
its depths are still
a mystery,
is it not another world
the ocean has
within?

Might you imagine
you are the ocean,
with surface waves
that are affected
by the shore,
weather,
currents
can stir you up,
on sunny, calm days
you are peaceful
once more.

At your depths
are you not part
of another world,
not affected
by what happens above,
is there not a stillness,
a place for reflection,
a chance to sense
your innate qualities
of Love?

It may be a challenge
to sense your vastness,
how deep and wide
your Essence does reach,
you may think you
are a drop of water,
but you are the
ocean
and you are every
beach.

You are the waves
of choppy water,
you are the deep
stillness that
balances the flow –
do not limit yourself
as you are limitless,
though you may
not always know.

Sense the Strength
in your very Be-ing,
do not fear
how powerful
you are –
let Love be the
boat that carries
you,
in every moment,
be it near
or be it far.

Ride the waves
that are on the
surface,
feel the stillness
that runs deep
within you,
a drop
or the entire
ocean,
You Are One –
with All of Love
within You.
