A Journey to Love

20170805 XPicture

8/05/17

You say a word
filled with emotion,
reactions happen 
without thought,
cannot these words,
these feelings,
be followed –
traced back
to usually
something else?

Are there not
patterns, beliefs,
that are based
on outcomes,
expectation,
judgement,
defense –
yes, can you
unravel,
unwind
and lay open
where ego
feels justified
and when feelings
get “hurt?”

Can you move
beyond the friction
that stirs up
whatever it is
that you believe
to be true –
when brought
to the light,
is this not
a teachable moment,
when you see
with clear eyes –
what is driving you?

Do you not react
often from judgment
of what you think
“should happen –
can you trace it
back to
what you believe –
is it fear,
is it worry
that generates
expectation –
“if all goes
this way,
it will all
be okay?”

“If” this
“then” that
is the cause
and effect –
that when something
is pushed,
do you not often
push back –
are there not
other options
than this way
or that –
can you open
the possibilities
of the Potential
of You?

Can you be open
to more ways
than one –
might you be
surprised
when All Is Well –
might you take
a different route
in your Journey
to get “somewhere”,
can you let it
unfold –
can you enjoy
the ride?

But yes, it helps
to keep opening
your eyes –
do not experiences
provide opportunities
for you
to trace back
where reactions begin
as belief –
do not so many
beliefs
come from a
smaller image
of you –
one that may
be fearful,
doubting what
you can be?

Can you let Love
be your driving force –
embrace the you
that may have
felt small,
that is only an illusion,
not Who You Are –
can you blast away
doubt
with the Love
That You Are?

Yes, you may
thank your reactions –
they show you
what is there,
ready to be seen
and cleared by Love –
check often
on what is driving
the vehicle
That Is You –
can you turn over
the keys
and let Love
lead the way?

You always have
the option
of where to go
on your Journey –
check at times
what is the fuel
that you use –
can you let Love
be the fuel
that drives you –
on this Journey of You,
surrounded by Love.

No-thing
can hold back
the Power of You.
May Love be the fuel
that drives you
to You.

There Love Is.
There You Are!
Keep moving,
keep growing,
of course always
with Love.

Love Heals

Love heals.

It can comfort,
it can soothe,
it can mend
an open wound,
is it not
better than
medicine –
Love heals.

There may be
pain when
you are lost,
or when you
think that you
have lost
one you love,
one you hold dear –
does not Love
connect you still –
Love heals.

There are processes,
there are ways
that bring healing
closer to you –
is it not Love
that opens
your heart,
helping you
create a space,
for you
to feel it
from within –
Love heals.

As Love
works from
the inside out –
always here
when you
need it most –
might you
embrace
its miraculous wonder,
it is always
ready to Be,
where you
need it most –
Love heals.

You need not
feel pain
to bask
in the healing
Force of Love –
but is pain
not a reminder,
to remember
Who You Are –
You Are Love
You Are complete –
Love heals.

Do you not
share this Love,
when you
can Be
Who You Are?

When you embrace,
the Love That Is You –
do you not
share this Love
with others, too –
do they not
see Who They Are
as their beautiful
Love unfolds –
is it not
One Love
That You Are,
that you feel –
Love heals.

Healing is
for One,
for All.
What you give,
do you not
receive?
Does not Love
know what
to do –
all you need
is to trust
Love, too.
Let Love be
your guide,
simply hold
a loving space –
and let Love heal.

Love heals.
Love remembers.
Love Is All
and All Is Love.

Healing.
Beautiful.
Love.

Connect With Love

20170704 XPicture

7/04/17

You wish
to make
a connection,
to feel your
loved one
in your heart –
are they not
always close
when you
Connect With Love?

Is not Love
the Great Connector –
that you are never
separate from,
yes, it may
be a different way
than how
you are used
to connecting here,
but do not these
Connections of Love
reach far beyond
your touch,
your sight,
do you not
feel it in
your heart,
when you
Connect With Love?

You may have
doubt
when you cannot
see,
when you cannot
hold your
loved one close –
but do you
not feel them
even closer
when you
Connect With Love?

Are you not
part of them –
are they not
part of You –
if you cannot
separate Love –
they are as
close
as they can be –
you know,
you feel
them in
your heart –
you are always
Connected With Love.

Be still
and feel
they are there –
look around
for signs
and know –
there is comfort
in the knowing,
that Love Is Here –
You Always Are
and Will Always Be –
Connected Always
With Love.

Answer of Love

20170612 XPicture

6/12/17

You may ask –
Why is there fear,
why pain,
why hurt?

Yes, you have
these experiences
in this world –
and are they all
not a way
to experience
and know
what is Strength,
what is Courage,
what is Joy,
what is Love?

Are there not times
when the absence
of Joy
lets you know
when Joy
rushes in –
you then say,
“I know Joy” –
is it not
the knowingness
that you wish
to experience
here on earth?

And is it not
when you look fear
in the eye –
that you experience
the Strength
and Courage
That You Are –
yes, you would prefer
not to know fear,
but does that
not give you
the opportunity
to see the Strength
that resides
within You?

And as the healing
Balm of Love
heals all pain,
all hurt,
do you not find
so many ways
to experience
Love?
And as you
look for healing –
do you not pass
the healing on,
is there not a
cycle,
a sharing
of healing Love?

Yes, this world
has its share
of fear,
of pain
and hurt –
but does it
not give you
the opportunity
to feel the Light
that shines in You –
to know the Love
That You Are –
does not the healing
Balm of Love
rush in,
when there is
something that is
asking to be healed?

There is no need
to experience
fear and pain
to Be
the Strength,
the Courage,
the Joy,
the Love
That You Are –
but yes,
there are times
when you ask
“Who am I?”

And in that question,
in the journey,
in the healing
that you seek –
does it not
always lead you
to Love,
lead you to You?

You Are the answer.
You Are the healing.
You Are Always Love.

Drop of Love

20170527 XPicture

5/27/17

A drop of Love.

Can you go 
throughout your day,
adding a drop of Love
to everything you do?

Might you think
that one drop
would hardly
be noticed –
would it not
take a larger
influx of Love
to make a difference,
to make a change,
to shift energy
from negative
to positive –
would just one drop
be enough?

And as you
cannot quantify
the Power of Love –
it is not based
on how much
is enough
to feel –
are you not sensitive
to the Strength of Love?

Can not
one drop
of Love
spread like pollen –
as you go
from place to place,
leaving a Drop of Love
everywhere you go –
does not Love
grow wherever
it is?

Would not a
Drop of Love
spread like water,
gathering,
one drop at a time,
growing larger
like a puddle
that flows
where it needs
to be –
do not the
ripples of Love
continue to
reach out –
touching who
and what
needs love?

Yes, might you add
one Drop of Love
to whatever
has your focus –
to see the difference,
and sense the change
in You?

There is the
Energy of Love
in everything
That Is –
might it take
a Drop of Love
for you to truly see –
the Love that
is in All?

Let one
Drop of Love
illuminate
the beauty,
the perfection
of All That Is.

All it takes
is Love.
One Drop.
One Love.
Add Love
to All.
Spread Love
one drop
at at time.

Healing Love

Restore.
Center.
Balance.

Feel the energy,
the power
that you draw
up from the earth,
grounding you
in this moment –
as you feel
the Love,
the connection
of Source,
of All That Is
in every fiber
of your be-ing –
does not this
balance,
this center of You –
have all it needs
to restore and heal?

Are there not times
that give you pause –
urging you to reflect,
to take time out,
to re-group,
to re-charge
and restore?

Might it be
a planned vacation,
or walks in the woods,
or health concerns
that make you stop,
getting your attention –
giving you time
and space to
restore,
center,
and balance?

Does not your body
begin to heal
when there is
something that
needs repair –
is exercise not
the breaking down
of what can be
built back up,
to be even
stronger than before?

Restore.
Center.
Balance.

Is this not
a cyclical phase –
is there not
an ebb and flow,
as you reach out
to learn and grow –
then draw back in
to reflect and absorb,
to grow again
in ways that may
surprise yourself?
Can you take
each experience
that sometimes may
throw you off –
as an opportunity
to shed the old,
as the Strength within
helps you to grow
stronger than before?

Are you not like
Phoenix rising –
shiny new
and stronger still –
are you not programmed
to regenerate,
to keep growing
and evolving –
with Strength and Love
at the core of
your be-ing?

Restore.
Center.
Balance.

Be patient
in the knowing
that Love will
lead the way –
might you always
feel the Healing
Power of Love.

Restore with Love.
Center to Love.
Balance all with Love.

Healing Love.
You Are.

Trust Love

20170509 XPicture

5/09/17

Trust Love.

A simple statement
in these two words,
but does it
not say all
you need –
could you not
use it as
a guiding Light?
Trust Love.

Is trust
not moving
beyond belief –
is it not a
knowing
that All Is Well –
can you believe
that Love
Is All
There Is?
Trust Love.

Can you let
yourself
feel Love Divine –
You Are worthy,
You Are Loved.
Might you
let Love
heal all wounds?
Trust Love.

You are amazing,
You are kind,
You are a
beautiful child
of God,
of Source,
of the Divine –
as You Are Love
at your very Be-ing,
can you feel that
You Are Love?
Trust Love.

Have you not had
experiences
with Pure Love –
be it with a child,
or a soulmate dear,
a pet who touches
your heart,
when you open
your heart and Love –
to eternity,
with no end –
do you not
get a glimpse
of Love
that knows
no boundaries
and is always there?
Trust Love.

Do you know,
can you believe –
You Are
an expression
of Love Divine –
open your heart
to the Love
That You Are –
Trust Love.

Believe.
Know.
Love.
Trust
Love.

Let Love Heal

Where does it hurt?

Is not pain
often used
as an indicator –
to lead,
to point,
to what is hurting,
to what wishes
to be healed
and sometimes –
there is a source
that can be found,
that can be fixed –
a splinter removed,
a scrape that needs
tending,
a broken bone
that given a chance
will heal
and often will
grow back
even stronger –
does not the body
do an amazing job
to try to heal
itself?

But as pain
is an indicator,
good at getting
your attention –
yes, there is pain
that does not
go away quickly
with a bandaid,
or medication,
it may not
be tied
to a physical symptom,
you may even know
the source of your pain,
but are there not
things that you
cannot change –
the reason
that you believe
you are in pain –
where does it hurt?

And if you
cannot go back
in time
to change,
to fix,
what you wish
to heal –
are you not
an amazing
regenerating body,
enveloped
with the Love
of All That Is
within your soul –
do you not
really need
to know –
where does it hurt?

Can you accept
the healing balm
of Love
that is always there –
might the healing
Force of Love
not only heal
but allow you
to grow even stronger –
do you not turn
to Love
to turn away
from the pain?
Can you transmute
the pain
so that it
can show you
more Love –
where does it hurt?

Are you not able
to recognize pain
in someone else –
does not the
understanding of pain
bring compassion,
bring more Love –
if pain is an
indicator,
getting your attention,
bringing up opportunities
to be healed –
to open and accept
the healing balm
of Love –
might you
embrace pain
and as you
love the pain, too –
do you not
open up to the
healing properties
of Love –
where does it hurt?

As hurt
and pain
cry out
for relief –
can you let
Love in
to soothe,
to heal,
to show
that You Are Loved?

Let Love heal,
let Love embrace
You,
the pain,
the hurt,
there is nothing
Love cannot do –
where there is hurt,
where there is pain,
There Is Love.

One for All

20170502 XPicture

5/02/17

“All for one
and one for all.”

And does this phrase
not bring together
the concept
of one and all
working together
in harmony –
even as the words
one and all
are often put
at odds with
each other?

Does it not
depend where
the one begins?

If the “one”
is at the
individual level –
does that not
foster a system
that invites separation –
that each “one”
is different,
standing alone
by itself,
seeing other “ones”,
but not feeling
connected?

Is that not why
when feeling separated,
do many “ones”
not seek to find others
just like themselves –
which can often
bring more
separation,
more polarization
with the bigger
groups of “ones?”

Now think of
“one” as One –
One Love,
the Love of
All That Is –
God,
Source,
Divine –
and does not
One Love
encompass All –
is this not
a blanket that
is large enough
to cover All,
to comfort All,
as All vibrates
with this Love –
only with a
unique filter
that you put on
to experience All
in this human world?

Have you not had
many experiences
with what it feels like
to work together –
be it on a team,
at school,
at work,
in a community,
with family,
or a group of friends
working on a project –
a common goal
that fosters teamwork
to experience
the concept
of all for one
and one for all?

What if All
had a common goal
to reach for –
to shine more brightly,
to work together,
to Be,
to Know
Love?

And would this
Expression of Love
not look different
when expressed by All –
but would you not each
feel the Love,
marveling in
each unique
Expression of Joy
that comes with Love –
what if Love
were the common goal
that unites the
All of One –
would not the
expression then be:
One for All
and All for One?

Are not All
and One
the same
when Love Is
All There Is?

Express your uniqueness.
Be one that is
part of the all.
You are surrounded
by teammates –
might you express yourself
and be a part
of this Team of Love?

Be One for All.
Be All for One.
Be Love.
Believe Love.
Believe You
Are One Love.

All of You
Are Love.
All
One
Love.

If Love . . .

Hug yourself.
Give yourself
a pat on 
the back.

Yes, you may think
there is always
something more
that you can do –
that should be done,
do you not often
have the mindset –
“if this gets done”
or “if I do that” –
do these “if-thens”
not take you
out of the
moment of Now
and put you in
your thinking mind –
delaying what is
important
and pushing you
into a different time –
is it not time
to be thankful,
to be grateful
for You –
hug yourself.

Do you not feel
self-conscious
hearing these words –
is it not better
to give out hugs?
But as you are
becoming more
conscious,
more aware
of the Power of Love –
is it not overdue
to be conscious
of the Self –
if you see the
Love in You,
can you not find
Love Everywhere?
Is that not an
“if-then” statement
that can heal
the World?
Hug yourself.

And is not
a pat on the back,
more than a symbol
of a job well done –
is it not
an acknowledgment
that you are here –
is it not a symbol –
“I see You” –
is it not a
reassurance that
All Is Well?
Right Now.
This moment –
give yourself
a pat on the back
and hug yourself.

Can you not
help but smile
at the simplicity
of these words?
You may think
of them as silly –
will you not
do this alone?
But if others
saw the Truth
that each of you
wish to feel –
is it not
when you love yourself,
that you can
truly give Love
to others?
If you can trust
the perfection
of Love in You –
could you not see
that Love in others, too?
Hug yourself.

If You Are Love
is not everyone?

You Are.
They Are.
All Are
One.
Love.
Hug.
Smile.
