The Best of Love

20180123 XPicture

1/23/18

In this earthly realm,
is it not hard
to know,
all the roles
you play
or where do outcomes
go,
like in any play
you may see,
might there be
more than one story
going on in a scene –
might you not add drama
and simply be –
the best You
that only You
can Be?

Yes, it is hard
not to expect,
what you think
“should” happen next,
based on your perspectives,
do you not know
them best,
but are there not
myriad lessons,
experiences going on,
for your learning
and for others, too –
do you not often
bring it back to you,
but might you
not know
who is teaching who?

So when all is said
and done,
when you lead with
your open,
loving heart,
have you not fulfilled
what you are
“to do” –
is it not in this
Love,
that you can simply Be –
the best You,
that only You
can Be?

Remember you are both
student and teacher, too.
Learn with Love.
Lead with Love.
The Best of You
Is Love.
Always,
simply,
Love.

Sharing Love

1/17/18

Is not a shared experience
one that helps you to connect,
you may bond over
brutal weather,
or a challenging event
you would rather forget,
do you not come together
with a sporting team you cheer,
do not years of history
help you feel close
to friends so dear?

But are there not connections
that are much harder to see,
when you share a sense,
a feeling,
that something binds you
close to All,
do you not begin to share
experiences
that help open up
your hearts –
and when they do,
do you not Know
that you are All
connected by Love?

You need not share proximity,
does not Love exist Everywhere?
You may connect with kindred spirits
or with those no longer here –
can you be in the company
of strangers,
but do you not know
everyone,
does not their heart
beat with yours,
as you beat with the
Love of One?

When Love is what is shared,
do not experiences help to enforce,
that you may walk a different path,
but do not all roads
lead you back to Source?

You may wave to some
upon your Journey,
you may share the steps
you take,
some may take a road
less traveled,
or one you may not wish
to make,
but do you not share Love
with every soul
that you meet along the way,
is not a shared experience
one that lets You
experience Love?

Do you not feel the connection
when those around you
turn up the Love,
turn up your Light
even brighter,
Light and Love are
what you are made of –
add your Light to all
Bright Lights
and may this Light
be seen above,
is not the Expression
of One
Light enough to
shine for All?

Share Love.
Share Light.
Give freely of
Who You Are.
See it reflected
back to You –
One Light,
One Love.

A Circle of Love

Where does Love
wish to go,
today?

You may identify needs
of yourself,
or others,
some may be requested,
some may be apparent,
but does not Love always know
where to go,
what to do,
might you turn up
the Light,
build the power
and ask,
where does Love
wish to go,
today?

Is it not in the giving
that your heart opens up,
does it not help to look
outside of where you are,
but giving is receiving,
and as a circle
is unbroken,
as Love connects you
to the Heart of All –
what you give
you receive
and at the heart
of All that matters –
where does Love
wish to go,
today?

Can you be a
Generator of Love
when the lights
begin to flicker,
can you turn up
the power,
a part of the cosmic grid,
are you not plugged into
Source,
the Source of All
Light and Love,
you need not know
who needs a boost,
a jump-start
to find their way,
does not Love
know where to go,
today?

Charge up.
Tap in.
Tune in to Love.
Send Light and Love
through the never-ending
circle.

Keep it going.
Keep it flowing.
Send it out
and take it in.

Love is Everywhere
You Are,
today.

Aware

Awareness is observing
from the seat of the soul.

You can still the
constant chatter
of your thoughts,
of your mind,
but are You
not always present,
be it loud
or be it still?
When you feel
most human,
experiencing situations
in your life,
is it not You
that is watching,
that is always aware?

When you shift
to this perspective –
aware of your
awareness Here,
does not the unhooking
of your story
bring you freedom,
bring relief –
but you need not
leave your story,
has not your story
brought you here –
do not your experiences
bring to your awareness
of what is coming up
for Love?

Is not awareness
the perspective
that knows All Is Well,
there is pain in
the human experience,
but your heart knows
what to do –
is it not awareness
that gives the heart
the leading role
in the story of You?

As human you may wish
to protect your heart
and close,
but the heart is so much
stronger,
it is the link to
All That Is –
may you open up
your heart
and Be Aware
of Who You Are –
You as the observer,
are you not always,
always Love?

Your heart is the window
to All That You Are.
Keep it open,
keep Love flowing.
Be Aware.
You Are Love.

Winds of Change

Winds of Change.

There are systems,
currents,
jet streams,
that can bring either
warm or cold air,
does not an arctic blast
originate far away
from where you may
reside –
but in a “cold snap”
or experiencing a heat wave,
do these not often
come in
on winds of change?

Can you be a part
of winds of change,
change that may expand
or melt the heart,
what if waves of Love
were to trickle in,
picking up steam
as more join in,
as Love is energy,
can energy not grow,
expanding as this
loving Flow
spreads far and wide,
to reach any heart,
no matter where you
may reside –
can you set sail
on these Winds of Change?

You need not change
another’s view,
are you not spreading Love
to turn on a Light,
there are myriad perspectives,
many points of view,
can you trust that
the heart
knows what to do –
you need not speak
the same language
or hear the same words,
do you not connect
with a loving heart?
Is it not heart to heart
that continues the Flow,
do not hearts fan
the Winds of Change?

Might you raise your vibration
with a grateful heart,
might you share Love,
might you receive,
there is magic when you
enter this Flow of Love –
when you lift to be in
these Winds of Change.
Is it not Love that lifts you,
are you not ready to fly –
can you add your loving heart
to this Wave of Love?

Share the Love
that is in
your heart.
Be a wave of Love
on the Winds of Change.

Walk With Love

Traveling early today. Please enjoy this message from a year ago!

You walk along
a darkened path
with a flashlight
in your hand –
the small beam
of light cuts
through the darkness,
enough that you can see
where your next step
may be,
as you cautiously
follow the light.
And do you not think,
“This would be easier
if I only had more light?”

So on your next trek
through the darkened path –
you now carry a
bigger light
and now you can see
further along
and around the path –
you are walking with
greater ease,
no longer worried
that you may take
a misstep or
to lose your way.

And with this bigger light –
you are now able
to see others
walking around you –
carrying their
beaming lights –
and you see that
if all shine their lights
together,
do the beams not combine
to illuminate more
of the path
that you are all
walking along?
And yet – do you not all think,
“This would be easier
if we only had more light?”

And then – at the break of dawn,
does not a greater light appear –
the sun arises on a new day,
bringing light so all may see –
illumining what is
always there –
be it dark or light?

And do you not realize
you can spend your time
hoping and waiting
for more light to come
to shine the way
so you may see,
but do you not have
within You,
all the Light you need?

And when you shine
your Light of Love –
illuminating exactly
where You Are –
is this not the perfect
place to Be?

And is not the Light
you shine,
the perfect Light
to show the way –
as you walk with
greater ease,
knowing you will
not lose your way?

And with each of You
shining your Lights of Love –
are you not already
connected by the Light
that flows through All?
The Light and Love
of All That Is,
is all you need
to walk along
any path that comes
your way.

There Is Light.
There Is Love.
There You Are.

Walk on
with Light.
Walk on.

Heart Space

I am traveling early today. Please enjoy this message from 12/21/2016.

Grief is the
grappling of
human emotions
trying to make
sense of
the loss of
a loved one
in your life –
as you try
to understand
that they are
no longer here
in the same ways.

You long to touch,
to share,
to talk to,
to experience them
in familiar ways –
it is hard to
accept,
to adjust to –
that their
physical presence
is no longer here.

And as grief
is the process
of acknowledging
that your physical senses
are sensing the void,
the space that
feels vacant,
the space that
was reserved
for your loved one
so dear –
do you not wonder
how to feel
their presence
as you no longer
feel you can touch,
or see,
or talk to them
in this human life?

And as your
human senses
cannot help
but acknowledge
the change,
the difference,
the loss in
your life –
are you not
flooded with
memories,
remembrances,
reminders
of the imprint
they have made
not only in your life
but deep within
your heart?

And does not the
sadness pour in
when you think
that no longer
will you touch,
or see,
or talk to them?

And as you are
limited with your
physical senses –
might you consider
expanding your
views of this world –
knowing there is
more to you than
your body,
does not your
soul communicate
and experience
in ways you cannot see?

And as your soul
has no limitations
with the Love That You Are –
and as your Loved One’s
soul has gone no where –
might you sense
that the void
you thought was there
is now a space
that is filled
by your souls
that have always been
and always will
be together?

Might the empty space
that you feel
in your body
be because you are
looking with only your eyes?

Let Love fill up
the spaces in your heart.
Look within to
find your loved ones
are with you now.

Meet Us in the spaces
that fill your heart with Love.
Walk with Love
that always, always
walks with You.

We Are.
You Are
Love.

Love Is All

Dates on a calendar
come and go,
marking time,
events to cherish,
celebrate
or grieve,
what comes before,
what happens after –
yes, it is sometimes hard
to be present now,
when looking ahead
or reminiscing behind,
when thinking about
what will be
or remembering
what was.

And is this not like
watching a movie –
you may skip ahead,
you may rewind,
do you not have
favorite parts
that you wish to see –
over and over again?

What parts make you laugh,
what parts make you cry,
either way,
are there not parts
of the movie
that touch your heart,
do you not go to scenes
that open the heart,
so that you may
feel the emotion,
and be washed in Love?

Might you mark
any day on the calendar,
to call in your loved ones
that you hold dear,
it may be a shared memory,
an object that you see –
a picture,
a song,
changing leaves on a tree,
your loved ones are with you –
do they not draw near
to share in the magical,
mystery of Love –
that needs no reminders
or dates on a page,
for are you not
always connected by Love?

Speak their name,
turn up your light.
Make each day
a celebration
of Love and Light.
There is no right way
or wrong way –
what feels “right” to you –
your loved ones
will always see
the Light that is
You.

Make an appointment
with your open heart.
No matter the date,
no matter the time.
Love transcends.
All that matters
Is Love.
Always Here.
Always There.
Always Love.

“All you need is Love. . .
Love is all you need . . . ”

Listen With Your Heart

20171217 XPicture

12/17/17

Listen with your heart.

There are thoughts,
there are words,
some harmonious,
some hard to hear,
but can you move
beyond
your thinking mind
and listen
with your heart?

Are there not many layers
to communication,
what you say,
what you think you
hear,
but is there not
another frequency flowing,
when you listen
with your heart?

Words are important,
words are powerful,
yes, language helps
you to relate,
but can not the
Language of Love
move beyond
each person’s story,
dialect,
or human traits –
might you find more
that you have
in common,
when judgement takes
a back seat –
when you see You
in someone else’s eyes,
when you listen
with your heart?

Even those who are
close to you,
that you know
so very well,
you may finish
each other’s sentences,
and know the next step
they may take,
can you look beyond
what you think
you know,
seeing them again
for the first time –
can they not tell
that you are present,
when you listen
with your heart?

Can you share your
heart space
not only with others,
but with you?
Can you sweep out
busy thoughts
and make time
to be with You –
what might your soul
be saying,
what might you hear
it say to you,
can you feel Love
overflowing,
when you listen
with your heart?

Listen.
There is Love
right now.
Your heart is singing,
your heart is flowing.
Listen
with your
heart.

One Heart

Group Of Students Playing In School Orchestra Together

12/15/17

One Heart.

Is not the beat
of one heart
felt by others
who become aware
of their own hearts
beating with this rhythm,
do not all
come together
to create a symphony
of sound –
can you hear,
can you feel,
this rhythm
in your heart –
one beat,
one heart,
One Love?

And one many not
be aware
of this beat,
this tune,
this Love,
that plays
within the heart –
might there be
many layers
that make it hard
to tune into
this frequency,
this song –
but can you not
turn up the volume
as your own heart
plays along,
as you turn up
the Love,
might not other hearts
sing along,
until All hearts
are singing
with one beat,
one heart,
One Love?

And does not this song
keep playing
even when you
are not aware –
you need no special
instrument
to play the music
that is always there –
place your focus
on your heart
and know your heart
always knows this tune –
as you join in with Joy
with one beat,
one heart,
One Love.

When you think
that you are separate
and thinking someone
is out of tune,
when the noise of
discordant notes
is too loud for
your human ears –
can you listen
within your soul
to the heart
that hums along –
to the song
that All can hear,
with one beat,
one heart,
One Love?

You may need quiet
so you may hear it,
in the stillness,
there it is!
It is you
All singing
together –
one beat,
one heart,
One Love.
