Integrate With Love

Integrate.

Is this not a process
much like cooking,
where you mix ingredients
together,
to make something
to behold,
do you not take in
information,
experiences that get
added,
do these not simmer
together,
body, mind
and soul –
it may be the outcome
you focus on,
but is it not what you
create inside –
integrate.

Might you be surprised
at your creation,
might it be something
new,
the recipe that you started
with
may have changed
and so have you,
if you put in quality
ingredients,
when you have Faith
are you not willing
to try,
to add some new ingredients
you would have not tried
before –
integrate.

And if your recipe needs
tweaking,
can you not add something new,
can you have fun in the
exploration
of what feels right for you,
when you begin with a
base of Love,
wishing to serve your
very best,
can you not combine these
together
and let Love do the rest –
integrate.

There is a time for
mixing,
there is a time to
let it be –
let Love permeate
all that you do
or what you wish
to be.
With Love as your
main ingredient,
there is no right
or wrong.
Soak up Love.
Play with Love.
Love knows where
it belongs.

Integrate all aspects
of you –
for are you not made
from Love?
Behold this beautiful
creation!
Love Is You
and You Are Love.

Take A Step

2/21/18

Take a step,
be it short or tall,
with no worry,
no doubt –
you will not fall,
there is information
for you
at every step along the way,
do not let your beliefs
label any misstep,
does not each step
you take,
lead you exactly to
Where You Are
right now?

When you take a look
back,
is it not an interesting
climb,
can you marvel at
what you have learned
from experiences that
are now behind,
yes, you could look ahead
at how steep or level
your next steps are –
but can you celebrate
where you are standing,
be it near or far?

As all of life is a Journey,
a series of steps,
you can look ahead
and wonder
what may happen next,
can you enjoy the journey,
even as you leave
this moment now,
does not every step
you take,
bring you closer to
Who You Are?

Take a step,
be it one or be it two,
you can run,
you can walk,
it matters not
the order that you do,
is not the purpose
to keep moving,
does not each experience
help you to find,
that each step you take,
brings you always
back to You?

Take a step,
with no worry,
with no doubt.
As you discover
Who You Are –
are You not what Love
is all about?

Can you let each step
bring you closer,
to the Truth of
Who You Are –
You Are Loved.
All Is Well.
You Are Here
and You Are Love.

All Is Possible

2/20/18

All is possible.

A blank slate.
A new page.
The start of a day.
What is possible
for you?

Can you move from
this moment
to the next,
open to all possibilities
that have not happened
yet,
with an open mind,
an open heart,
might you open doors
you thought were closed –
when you realize you have
the Strength within,
with Courage can you
jump –
no, dive in,
to the Sea of Possibility,
you are already There –
are you not possibility
waiting to appear?
All is possible.

Do not put on the brakes,
do not hold yourself back,
follow the current of Love,
that wishes to show you
the way,
your beliefs can put on blinders
that may make it difficult
to see,
but can you not choose
to realize,
the possibilities of today,
can you say “YES”,
“I will!”
“I can do that!”
And is there not Joy
when you affirm this
to be true?
All is possible.

Let Love fill in the spaces
you think need to be filled,
conditions, that you think –
“if then, I’ll do that.”
Begin.
Find a way.
Be All That You Are.
Believe.
Be Love.
Be Possibility today.

Love Finds a Way

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Love finds a way.

When you are unsure
of where you are going,
how to proceed,
or what to do,
do you not end up
Where You Are –
Love finds a way.

You may drag your feet
when walking,
as you look for what
lights up your path,
does the Light
not always find you –
Love finds a way.

With expectations and outcomes,
do you not forge ahead thinking
you know,
but if you get lost
and need support,
can you not sense
the gentle guidance –
Love finds a way.

You have questions
that may go unanswered
when unfolding
what is inside,
can you hold close
your belief in Love
and know that
Love finds a way.

Do not magical things happen,
when you loosen your grip
to find,
you need not know
all of the answers,
you need not always
use your mind,
can you open up
your heart,
and as you believe
You Are Love, too,
then may you
Trust,
Allow
and Know –
that Love finds a way.

You always walk with Love,
You Are Love
and Love Is You.
When it is hard to see,
turn up your Light
and Know,
Love Is Everywhere
you are –
let Love show
you the way.

No Resistance

20180211 XPicture

2/11/18

When you bump into
resistance,
is not the first inclination
to push against,
then does not your
brain engage,
to look at all angles,
to problem-solve,
there must be a solution,
if you can find out why,
might you be able
to push through
what may be resisting
you?

But before you begin
to place judgments on,
the resistance you feel
may not be right
or wrong,
might it be to
nudge you in a
different direction,
to make an adjustment
or to change course
in a bigger way,
can you look at
resistance
as a navigational tool,
that is not rejecting,
but helping you?

You may have in your
mind
what something “should” be,
you may wonder,
why did this happen
or “how does it affect me?”
Can you feel with
your heart,
can you sense with
your soul
and ask –
where does this wish
to take me,
to get back into the
flow?

Does not resistance
help you to find
what you resonate with –
do you not wish to find
harmony
and the Peace that goes
with it,
you may prefer for all
rides to be smooth,
but what gets your
attention,
what motivates you –
when the path becomes
bumpy,
do you not look for
a new way,
one that helps you to
move forward
with Love lighting
the way,
some changes here,
a turn towards there –
can you have Gratitude
for resistance,
that brought You
to Here?

Breathe in.
Look with the
Eyes of the Soul.
Feel where there
is no resistance,
sense where there
is Flow.
Do not look to where
you think you “should” be.
Be Here
with Love
and therein
lies Peace.

A Greater Good

20180210 XPicture

For the greater good.

Does not this phrase
pave the way,
to release,
to let Love flow,
as we have said
many times before,
does not Love know
where to go,
can you remove your expectation,
you need not do,
you need not know,
when you surrender,
turning up your Light,
do not Love and Light
know what to do –
for the greater good?

This is not giving
your power away,
does not your Power
add to the Whole –
as Light and Love
are part of Source,
of energy that flows
through All,
are you not connected
to this grid,
as you build your power
can not others feel it, too –
when you shine
your beautiful Light,
can not others see that, too,
are not Love and Light
here for All –
for the greater good?

Even as your identify
steps aside,
are you not a conduit
for this earth,
you are a bridge
playing a sacred role –
turning up your Love
and Light,
can you see the
connected glow,
that is building Strength
as You build and grow,
your Light of Love,
the Power of Source,
that is All for the
greater good?

Do not All
feel the Love,
do not All
see the Light?
Is not the greater good
you
and you
and you?

Step aside
and you will see,
You Are the Light
shining brightly.
Be the Love
That You Are.
You All are part,
You All Are One
with the Greater Good.

Guiding Love

20180206 XPicture

2/06/18

Is not walking down
a mountain,
often easier than
climbing up,
when you are
at the base,
at the bottom,
is it sometimes hard
to see the top,
might your view be
obscured
by rocks and boulders
in your way,
is it not sometimes
hard to navigate,
do you not work
to find a way?

But if you are on top
of the mountain,
looking out at all
to see,
from this perspective,
can you not determine
which route you can
take with ease,
is there less effort
when not working
so hard,
as in scrambling to the top,
might you stay
and enjoy this perspective,
once you arrive
and finally stop?

As you are above
can you not still see
below,
do not both vantage points
you see,
from the top,
is it not easier
to see all that
you can Be,
from the bottom looking up,
the view may be clouded
and hard to find,
but from atop
your highest perspective,
can you not see All
perfectly fine?

Can you imagine
the top of a mountain,
when you need space
to see a different view,
do you not change your
perspective,
when you zoom out
to take a look at you,
from this vantage point
might you see
a better route for you
to take,
can you help the one
that is climbing,
helping out with
the next move
you may make?

You need not work
so hard,
can you find a way
to move with ease?
Can you follow the path
within your heart,
is this not the one
with the expansive view?
Can you not see
oh so clearly,
when you see with the
Eyes of You –
from the top of the
mountain,
as you look out from above –
do you not recognize
the beauty,
the Magnificence of Love?

As above,
so below.
You Are All
that you wish to see.
Let Love be your Guide.
Trust,
allow
and Believe.

Being Strength

20180205 XPicture

2/05/18

How does Strength feel?

Is it not assured
as it is firm,
but it need not be grandiose,
is Strength not quiet
in its energy,
but does it not permeate
all,
like metal that gives
an object structure,
steely in its persistence,
is it not Strength
that keeps you standing,
when you may buckle
or sometimes fall,
is it not strength
that helps you up,
to keep you walking
through it all?

Does Strength not keep
momentum going,
when you are not sure
what may happen next –
is there not resolve
when Strength is behind you,
coursing through you,
cheering you on,
when you look with
some amazement
at how you got from
there to here,
what is the essence
that moved you forward,
is it not Strength
that is always there?

Call upon your Strength
and Courage,
they are ready at
the fore,
does fear not give you
opportunities
to feel Strength
at your core,
with Love at your center,
with Strength opening
all closed doors,
can you not sense
what you are made of –
You Are Strength
and You Are Love.

With Humility,
with Gratitude,
let your Strength
see you through.
You have all
you need
within you –
Trust in Love
as Love Is You.

Believe To Know

20180203 XPicture

2/03/18

Believe to Know.

And yes, could you
not turn that around,
to make it then –
Know to Believe?

If knowing is where
your soul hangs out,
is belief not when
your human side says,
“let’s go there!’
“Let’s take the plunge,” and
“let’s take the leap!”
Is not belief
the willingness,
to entertain possibilities
that just might happen,
can you not visualize
your soul
extending a hand,
rejoicing when
you step through belief,
to the space where you
finally Know?

And does not belief
continue to expand,
as the knowingness
within you
gently prods you here
or pushes you there,
is this not where
the learning is –
this exchange between
knowing and belief,
are they not like
the “chicken and the egg”,
when all are part of a circle,
a widening sphere,
do you not then realize
you are All the spaces
from here to there –
can you see how your
belief leads you to
what you already know?

Do you not feel
the lift,
does not your soul
rejoice,
when you believe,
when you understand,
is it not Trust
that is the bridge
to Knowing,
with belief do you not
wish to go There,
and then Know
You Are
already Here?

Trust, Believe and Know,
You Are All
that you seek.
Believe to Know
and Know to Believe.

And what is there
to know?
Love Is All
there is.
You Are That.
You Are Love.

A Taste of Love

Like when cooking
a favorite dish,
separate ingredients
you begin to mix,
some put a pinch of that
a splash of this,
some measure out
to be exact,
do you not then
stir it all together,
flavors mingling,
needing time,
does not this all
then combine,
to create something
new?

You cannot wait
to try this dish,
but does not patience
go with this,
the flavors may need time
to marinate
or it may need extra time
to bake,
even letting it stand
when cooking is done,
may add to what the flavors
can become,
there may be many steps,
but can you enjoy each step
as it happens next,
is something good
not worth the wait?

is this not like
learning something new,
do you not need time
to integrate,
to introduce the old
to the new,
combining this,
bringing in that,
letting it all simmer
together,
to create a new
result,
one that you may not
have tried before,
might you give it time
to settle in,
to let the flavors
marinate and blend?

Might you be surprised
with what you create,
it may be different than
what you anticipate,
can you bring Joy
to this process,
being present
with every step,
is there not learning
in how you proceed
as much as what you
finish with?

For when you create
your perfect dish,
is there not another
on your list,
enjoy and savor every
delicious bite,
can you feel the wonder
with every step,
as you create with your
“secret” ingredient,
as you add Love
to it All?

Play with the many
Flavors of Love,
be patient as
you mix it up,
do not some things
that you create,
need extra time
to bake,
savor each moment,
enjoy the process,
is not preparing
part of the Joy,
as you create with the
ingredients of Love?

Combine.
Simmer.
Wait.
Enjoy.
Savor every
step of Love
as you
create.
