Holding Love

Possessions.

A single word
that brings to mind,
many things
that you have touched,
many memories
are attached
to these things
that are attached
to you,
that are yours,
that are theirs –
are possessions
not separated out
to owners
that possess
or have items
in their possession?

And do you
not at times
fear that a memory
will be lost
if you give away
a loved one’s
possessions?

Yes, “possession”
brings to mind
many stories,
many experiences
that you have
here on earth –
memories that
make you laugh,
make you cry –
there are physical connections
that you share,
that you can touch
and you can hold –
is it not
this physical experience
that is so hard
to let go?

And does it not
make it hard
if you think
of things as “lost” –
if something
or someone
is out of sight,
do you not fear
that they are “gone”,
never to be seen
or felt again?

As your awareness grows,
as you know you
are always connected
to your loved ones
in your heart –
your spirit,
your soul
is always with
the ones you love –
it is a different
relationship
than the physical one
here on earth –
as you seek to re-connect
through your heart
and not through
the possessions
that you can hold.

Yes, there are
treasured items
that you will
always keep close –
but as you release
the possessions –
letting go of the
physical ties –
do you not open
up more space
to see beyond
what you can hold –
are you not
so much more
than what you
can possess?

And you need
not “re-connect”
to the Love
that is connected
to You –
are you not
eternally linked
together in this Love?
And as Love
is not something
to be owned
or to possess –
it cannot be lost,
it is never gone –
are not your
loved ones
just as close
when All Is Love?

As you release
what you think
holds Love
to you –
may you find
Love
Is Always There.

You Are Loved –
your Loved Ones, too.
You Are always
connected to Love.
All you need
is all you have
and That Is Love.

Kindred Spirits

There are many ways
and many levels
to get to “know”
someone.

You might
know all of
the information
about what
they do,
who they are
related to,
what they like,
what have they done
in the past,
what are their
future dreams.

But are there
not other ways –
do you not
“know” something
about someone
you have have
just met,
or only came
in contact with
in a less
permanent way –
but do you not
get a sense
about someone
without knowing
the details
of what they “do”
in their day to day
life?

Does this not help
you to look at
what do you
identify with –
how closely
do you relate
what you do,
the details,
the information,
the story –
with Who You Are –
and is it not
difficult to put
into words
this concept of Be-ing?
Is that not why
you rush to fill in
the identifying factors
that you have gathered
so far?

And yes, you have
an identity,
as you live
in this physical world,
with identifying features
that you can use
to connect with others,
or use to put distance
between those
that you think
are different –
that you might not
have much
in common with?

But as you are
so much more
than what you think
makes up your story –
do you not
connect with others
heart to heart first –
not needing to know
what they “do”,
but sensing the Love
that emits from
their soul –
do you not know
this is a kindred spirit,
no matter what
story is told?

And even if a
heart is closed,
someone does not remember
Who They Are –
will their soul
not receive
the Love you send?
For once you embrace
that you are
not your story –
how can you not
send Love
to every Soul?

Are you not All
Kindred Spirits –
made from Love
a part of
All That Is –
yes, you have
connections that
teach you much,
there will be some
you are supposed
to meet –
but underneath
the identifying features,
there beats a heart
that somewhere deep
within its core,
There Is Love
and There Is Light.

Can you see it?
Can you feel it?
Might you look at You
to find it There?

You know Love.
You know Light.
You can find them
Everywhere.
Look with your heart
and seek to find
Love
in every
One.

Beauty of Love

Beauty is in the eye
of the beholder.

And what do you
behold as
beautiful?

Is beauty only seen
with the eyes –
is it not often
seen at the
superficial level –
as a judgement
on appearance,
is not the
word “beautiful”
so often used
that it loses
some of the
feeling that
true beauty
can bring forth?

Yes, there are
images that
you see
that bring
forth a gasp
as you take in
the spectacular beauty
of magnificent
displays of nature –
is there not beauty
in the redwoods,
the canyons that
are grand,
waterfalls that
flow with power,
the first iris
that drops its petals,
so its color
can fully be seen?
Beautiful.

There is beauty
in art created –
with a camera click
or stroke of brush –
it may begin
as imagery
imagined,
but is art not
more than
what you see –
is there not
a resonance
that occurs
when you
gaze at what
is beautiful –
what you feel
within your be-ing,
what beauty resonates
within your soul?

In the physical world,
is not love
often linked with beauty –
when you see
something beautiful –
do you not exclaim,
“I love that!”
do you not seek
to find beauty,
is it not what entertains you –
be it traveling to
look at nature,
to soaking up
the beauty of music
that moves you,
or being touched by
the beauty of
a movie so well done?

Do you not behold
the beauty of
another soul
whose spirit
touches you?

Beauty is in the eye
of the beholder.

Can you not
see beauty
when you
see with
the Eyes of Love?

And do you not
Know beauty
as beautiful
is What You Are –
can you behold
the beauty,
the Love,
that resides
in You?

Are you not
looking for
the spark,
the Light,
the movement
in your soul
that resonates
with the
Beauty of Love?

Be Love.
Be Beautiful.
Behold
the Love
That You Are.

Follow Your Heart

20170501 XPicture

5/01/17

Follow your heart.

This direction 
on what direction
to take,
how to navigate
a course,
lends itself
to directions
less traveled,
to a more
uncertain path
where your thoughts
are concerned –
what is your center
of be-ing
telling you?
Trust your instincts
and follow your heart.

Is there not
a feeling
that is hard to
explain with
the words
of the mind,
when you connect
with the Truth
that your heart
knows is there –
it is not really
emotion,
but is it not
a feeling?
Trust your instincts
and follow your heart.

You have more
than one compass
that will help
lead the way –
can you turn down
the noise of
your thoughts,
to take the path
of Love
that the heart
is tuned into –
with the knowing
of your center
can you trust now
where You Are?
Trust your instincts
and follow your heart.

We are not
asking you
to not think
on your own –
there is a balance
to the life you lead,
but is there
not information
that flows through
your be-ing,
and as You Are
a Be-ing of Love –
do you not
look back on choices,
decisions you
have made
and thought,
“I should have trusted
my instincts
and followed my heart!”

It may be a path
less traveled,
it may put you on
a different route,
but if you feel into
what your heart
is telling you –
might you
be more connected
to the Love That You Are,
as you honor the
Love That You Are
in your heart,
might you trust your instincts
and follow your heart?

Let Love
lead the
way to
Love.

Have Faith.
Trust Love.
Follow your heart.

Time for Love

Waiting.

When you wait, 
or when you “make”
others wait –
is waiting not
the time
that is in between
the time
when something
is “supposed”
to happen?

Is not waiting
a construct
of linear time –
do you not
enter a
state of wait
when there is
an expectation
of being on-time?

Is this not
a balancing act
as you live
in a linear world
that marches
to the tick tock
of the clock,
the rhythm of time
passing by?

How can you
be in the now,
when time
is marked
and measured
in every minute,
every day,
every year,
every season?

And do you not
think of wait-time
as wasted time,
as empty space,
that should be filled
by what should happen
in that measurement
of precious time?

Are you filling time?

Might you change
the way you think
about what goes
into the space
that you call time –
might you be giving
more weight,
more power
to time
than it truly has?

You may also
resist time
in a state of inaction,
procrastinating –
as you do not wish
for time
to be your ruler –
are there not things
you cannot accomplish –
when you rebel
against the
Master of Time?

Who makes Time
the Master?

Yes, there is
a driving force
in the day to day
world that
would be chaotic
without time –
but is there not
space to be
in every moment –
is Now not
the perfect time?

Might you view waiting
and how you feel
in that state of wait
as an indicator
of your relationship
with time –
do you not enter
into a power struggle,
when it comes
to struggling
with time?
Might you find time
within the “wait” –
to simply
and beautifully Be?

Yes there is a balance
you must find,
but as you view
your unfolding day –
might you fill it with
what you Love,
sensing the nudges
of what to do next –
might this be a way
to experience
a day without time –
still accomplishing what
you wish to happen –
might you be
more satisfied,
as you are not
just filling up time?

Be in each moment –
there is no waste,
there is no empty
space of time –
as each moment
is filled with All That Is –
you need never
wait for Love.

Shift With Love

IMG_4921

4/21/17

There is an opening
when you create space –
a shifting of energy,
when there is movement.
You may perceive
this shift
as closing a door,
but as energy
cannot disappear,
you cannot close
something off –
when you shift
with Love.

And in this opening,
is there not space
to breathe life into
what was standing still –
is not energy
always ready to create
something new,
when you give
it a chance –
when you shift
with Love?

Are there not opportunities
when you look
with new eyes,
when you are in
a transition,
is it not
the perfect time
to be open to
new possibilities –
change can feel
uncomfortable,
you may be treading
on new ground –
but can you have
faith in knowing,
that All Is Well,
can you embrace change –
when you shift
with Love?

When you turn
toward change,
you are not turning away,
your heart never forgets
when it has
opened with Love –
do you not carry
with You,
All That You Are –
is it not Love
that has brought you
where you are now –
will Love not
always be there –
when you shift
with Love?

You may pivot
in Life,
you may try
something new –
you may say goodbye
to the old,
but not to
the Love
that is always
within You –
there is always
an opening
for Love to
come through –
when you open
and shift
with Love.

 

Expansive Love

IMG_4894

4/19/17

You have an expectation,
how you will act,
how you might feel,
what may happen
in any situation –
do you not speculate,
preplanning what will be?

Yes, it may give
you focus,
when you plan
a direction you
may take,
but are you not
also surrounding
what may be
with limitations –
might you be
holding yourself back
from what can be?

Expectations
and outcomes
can sometimes
set you up
for ego’s judgement,
but are they not
also limiting in nature –
how can you
know every outcome
that may be?

Might you play
in expansive energy
that is not limited
by your story,
or only based on
what you know,
or what you may have
experienced before?

Can you have faith
that there is something
greater than you,
where expansive energy resides –
the Vibration of Love,
is looking out for you,
but might it be
a different path
that you did not see?

Might you open
your heart,
but also open
your mind –
can you trust
that a different way
might take you
on a different route –
resulting in a more
expansive outcome
than you may
have thought?

Is not your imagination
the perfect place
to play and dream?

Can you play
in the vibration
of Love that is
expansive –
it has no limits,
it knows no boundaries –
can you get there
with faith –
and trust in the
expansive energy
of Love?

Expand your mind.
Expand your heart.
There are no limits
to the expansive
energy of Love.

And as You Are Love –
there is no limit
to the expansive
energy of You.

Set yourself free with
the limitless
Love That You Are.
