Emerge

Winter’s slumber awakens.
Is it not hard
to sleep when there
is so much Light?

The days grow longer.
Yes, signs of spring
add to the look,
the feel,
the sounds of
the day.
The birds are busy
making way for
their young,
taking advantage
of longer
dawn to dusk.

Do you not look
to see the signs
of spring emerging –
is there not a freshness
in the air,
the hope of new growth,
as there is more Light –
do you not sense
that it is time to awaken
from your winter’s slumber –
much like the Bear?

With the ebb and flow
in the cycles of Life –
there are times to rest
and there are times
of growth –
does not bringing
in the Light
help you to see –
does not Light bring hope,
much like the
emergence of spring?

And as you awaken
from your winter’s sleep –
is it not time to rub
the sleep from your eyes –
as you venture out
to look around
with a new perspective –
is not everything illuminated
when you bring in
more Light?

Stretch your muscles,
take advantage of
the Light,
take stock in
what arises,
what is asking
for your attention,
what is ready
to begin.

As you awaken
from your slumber,
with a blessing
of Gratitude
in your heart –
step into the Light
and let your own
Light shine.

The day awaits.
All Is Well.

A State of Gratitude

What is Gratitude?

Is it acceptance?
Is it allowing
the room or space
to be in a
State of Gratitude?

Is not Gratitude
the language,
the communication
of the heart
that helps you
take a step back –
opening up the heart
to being thankful,
being grateful –
for any one
or many things
of which there are
to be thankful,
to be grateful for?

But as there are times
when blessings
can appear to
be elusive –
is it not
the human way,
in the world of duality,
to place judgement
on what to be
grateful for?

But what if you
stepped into the
State of Gratitude,
even before you
counted your blessings –
is not Gratitude
an open and allowing
place to Be?

Would you not need
to depend upon
what is happening
around you,
to bring thoughts
of Gratitude in –
do you not feel
the shift,
when you open up
your heart,
to find Gratitude
is already within You?

As You Are Gratitude,
as You Are Love –
does not Gratitude
allow you to
relax into Love –
does it not provide
the space to
simply Be?

Is not being
in the State of Gratitude,
honoring the essence of
Who You Are –
can you be grateful
for the Blessing
That Is You?

Allow Gratitude
to dance with
the Love That You Are.

And within that space,
that energy,
that State of Gratitude –
There Is Joy,
There Is Peace,
There Is Love.

The State of Gratitude
is the Gateway to You –
Blessed Be,
Blessed You.

There Is Love

Sit in the silence,
feel Love surround you,
open your heart –
Love Is There.

Look beyond the worries,
the struggles, the pain,
where is the comfort?
Love Is There.

As you take a breath
and breathe Gratitude in –
does it not fill you up?
Love Is There.

Can you create a space
to sit with You?
And when you still your mind –
Love Is There.

You may call it what you wish,
God, Source, Divine –
You Are that very Essence –
Love Is There.

And as You Are All One –
the Loved Ones that you miss,
they are as close as
your breath, your heart –
Love Is There.

You cannot help but Be
the Love That You Are –
as You Are Loved,
can you not see –
Love Is There.

Sit in the Silence.
Still your mind.
Take a moment
for you to Know –
Love Is There.

There Is Only
You Are Always
Eternal
Magnificent
Love.
