All One

There is a pulse,
there is a beat,
as the waves
from the ocean
wash up
upon the shore,
flowing over the sand
before receding
back into the
ocean –
only to do it
once again,
and again,
and again.

And from your
perspective
on the sand –
you do not think,
or feel sad,
when the waves
recede into
the ocean,
that they are
gone forever –
are they not
part of the
ocean
that is so vast,
so full of water –
will it not
continue sending
wave after wave
to wash upon
the shore –
with a rhythm
and a beat
that soothes
the soul?

Is there not
a collective sound,
when the waves
from the ocean
come together
in unison,
to spill over
on the sand –
do not some
drops of the ocean
get absorbed
into the sand –
while the
other drops
of water
get carried back
out into
the sea?

There is a
continuous flow
to the water,
to the ocean,
are you not
amazed
by the rhythm,
by the sound,
by the continuous
Force of Nature
that seems so
constant in
its presence –
yet ever-changing
with each wave,
with each drop of
water –
do you not
understand vastness
when you experience
the ocean?

There is a pulse,
there is a beat
of Love
that you
are part of,
much like
the ocean –
you are constant,
you are changing –
does it all
not depend
on where your
perspective is?

Are you standing
on the shore –
thinking Love
may come
and go –
with fear
and doubt
that it is
only temporary
in its scope?

Or do you see
that You Are
each drop
of water
in the ocean –
moving from
here to there,
but always
a part
of the Whole –
you cannot
separate a drop
of water from
the ocean –
does it not
always find
its way
back Home?

You cannot
be separate
from the Love
That You Are,
part of a
continuous flow –
You Are
a Force of Nature,
Love is constant
in its presence,
yet ever-changing
as you experience
the Love that
flows though You –
will you not
always find
your way
Home
through Love?

Be amazed
That You Are
as vast as
the ocean,
as powerful
as each wave,
as Loved
as each drop
of water
in the ocean.

All One.
You Are All.
You Are One.
You Are Love.

A Place of Love

A hermit crab
finds a shell
that becomes
his house,
he is at home –
what makes
you feel at home
wherever you are?

Like the crab,
you may wish
to feel protected
and secure –
yes, a house
will keep you safe
from the elements
outside –
it gives you
a safe haven,
a protective shell –
but is it not
Love that makes
a house
a home?

What is the shift
when you sense
that you are home –
what makes a place
familiar,
do you not feel
“at home”
sometimes when
you are away?
Are there not others
that you feel
“at home” with –
is there not a
sense of belonging
when you feel
settled –
when you feel
at home?

And this sense
of belonging,
being in the right place
at the right time,
being at Peace
where you are,
no matter the
particular space
you may be in,
can you not
feel “at home”
in your own skin –
could you not be
like the hermit crab
and make any place
your “home?”

Might you
come home
to the Love
That You Are –
You Are perfect
Where You Are –
there is no place
you need to be –
might you Be
at home
in this space –
in this Place of Love?

Come Home
to Who You Are.
If Love makes
a house
a home –
is not home
Wherever You Are?

You Are Home.
You Are Love
as You Are Loved.

Here.
There.
Everywhere.
Welcome, welcome
Home.
