Believe Love

It is easy
to take
what you know
based on experiences
you have had –
to speculate
or to assume
what might be
or might happen
next –
as you believe
this,
might you
create
what you believe?

Might you create
what you
do not want –
if your beliefs
include fear
and doubt,
yes, it is easy
to be fearful
of the unknown.

But is there
not always more
than meets
the eye,
than what you
know,
have you not
been surprised
when you
find out –
underneath
the exterior
of someone
you may
have judged –
there is
another part
of them
that you
did not know?

Is it not easy
to extrapolate
from what
you think
you know –
but does this
not limit
you,
to what you
can create
with Who You Are
and not with
who you may
become?

It is not
the set of
experiences
that creates
Who You Are –
do you not
create
the experiences,
to experience
You?

You Are complete.
You Are whole.
You are ready
to dive in
to all experiences
so you may
remember
Who You Are.

Do you not
experience separation
to remember
You Are One?

With the Love
of All That Is –
can you create
from a place of Love –
are you not
limitless
when you believe
that Love Is You?

Review your beliefs –
which ones
best serve You?
Can you begin
with the belief
that You Are Love?

When you begin
with Love,
you know
there is no
end.
There Is Love.
All Is Love.
You Are All
and All Is One.

Believe.
Create.
Love.

Light of Love

A moonbeam
of light
is enough
to cut through
the night,
to illuminate
what you
need to see,
so you won’t
stumble in
the dark –
when it is dark,
it does not
take much
light to see.

Is that not why
the moon’s shine
is so bright
against a sky,
though peppered
with stars,
the inky black
is the perfect
backdrop
for the moon
to shine
and glow –
casting moonbeams
to lighten
a path
for whoever
needs light
to find their way.

Is darkness
not a contrast,
a perfect
compliment
to the light –
does not
the moonbeam appear
even brighter
than the sun,
does it not
catch your attention,
does it not
highlight
what you are
to see?

It may only take
a single beam
of Light,
to light
your way –
has not light
filtered in
before
to shine
the way
for you?

Might you
turn up
your own Light –
might someone
need a single
beam,
to keep
from stumbling
in the dark –
even if they
do not know
where
the beam of
Light
is coming from?

If a single moonbeam
from the moon,
so far away,
can shine on
You –
can your Light
not cut through
the dark,
to reach
whoever may need
some Light –
you need not
know
where it lands –
can you shine
your Light
as freely
as the moon?

Be a Light
for Love
that cuts through
the dark,
illuminating
what you need
to see,
so you will not stumble,
you will not fall –
it only takes
a drop of Light
to see
and find
your way.

Shine your
Light of Love.
Let your Light
illuminate
your path.
May you shine
and glow
in the
Light of Love –
far reaching,
always shining,
Love.

Love Is You

When you feel
unsettled,
you need not
wonder why –
it could be
weather,
it could be
thinking,
the full moon
passing by –
there is a
peaceful place
you can
go to –
when you remember
That Love Is You.

You may need
quiet,
you may need
stillness,
to let go of
the questioning mind –
the mind is good
at soaking up
what it sees
and what it
perceives –
but is Truth
not found
in your center,
is that not where
Love resides –
where there is Love,
is that not where
to find Peace –
when you remember
That Love Is You?

There will
always be
stories and drama,
as you are here
to experience life –
but there is
Peace in
your core be-ing,
yes, you have
found this
to be true –
to get to
your Place of Peace,
might you let go
of the chattering mind –
when you get quiet,
when you are still –
when you remember
That Love Is You?

You may need
practice,
to get comfortable
with the quiet
and the still –
but is it
not You
that you are
waiting for,
can you see
Who You Are –
is there not Peace,
is there not Love,
when you remember
That Love Is You?

Love Is gentle.
Love Is Knowing.
You Are One
and One Is Love.
There is comfort,
there is Peace –
when you remember
That Love Is You.

Be Kind

It is hard
to move beyond
the logical,
the reasoning mind –
is this not
where your
belief systems
set up shop
and set
the rules?

This is where
choices happen –
yes, there needs
to be organized
thought,
but might you
remember
that there is
more to you
and those
around you,
then only
your mind?

If everyone
is ready
to fight,
to choose
a side,
to defend
their stance,
all it takes
is an initial
volley of
chosen words,
and the
fight is on –
is it not
hard to listen
when a barrage
of words
are not meant
to be heard?

Have not words
become the
ammunition –
to express
emotion,
of what does
not make sense
to the logical,
reasoning mind –
where belief systems
are the rule?

Can you open
your heart
to hear,
to feel,
to get past
the lines
drawn in the
sand,
from your mind,
that gets distracted
by the noise,
by the fight –
can you get past
the hurling of words,
to hear,
to sense
what is beyond
the frustration,
the emotion
of another mind –
to hear
a beating heart?

There are many
perspectives
you can take,
to see,
to feel,
to sense,
as you integrate
your mind,
your spirit,
the Love
within your heart –
might you balance
out the words,
with the awareness
that All Is One?

So many perspectives,
so many experiences
allow you
to choose
your words,
your reactions –
your mind,
your heart
can work together
to choose Love,
see Love,
hear Love
and Be Love.

Be Kind.
Be Open.
Be You.
Be Love.

Message of Love

20170630 XPicture

6/30/17

There is a message
always for you –
do you not
look around
wondering,
where is Love?
You look to
see it,
you yearn
to feel it –
you know when you
sense it –
There Is Love.

A Message of Love
can be anywhere
at anytime –
it may be
on the smile
of another
you see,
it may be
in a sign
when a loved one
says “hi” –
it may be
in a picture
that takes
your breath away –
when something
touches your
heart,
you know
That Is Love.

Can you initiate
Messages of Love?
In a world of
friction,
arguing
and strife –
when a loving
message is sent
your way –
do you not
stop and remember –
There Is Love.

Send a thought,
a Message of Love
in some way –
hear another,
affirm someone’s day,
there are many
hearts
that have forgotten
what Love
feels like –
can you remind
someone,
That Is Love?

Might you Be
a Messenger of Love,
as you connect
with the Love
that flows
within You –
for a short time
or a whole day
through –
can you embody
the Love
That You Are –
you may
not need
to find it,
or wonder
where it is –
when you realize
That You Are
and
There Is Love.

Hello, Love

20170620 XPicture

6/20/17

There are many ways
to say hello –
a wave,
a nod,
a smile –
is it not
a greeting,
a way to acknowledge,
that “I see you”
and “you see me?”

Is not a hello
an invitation
to make a connection,
to say “I am here”
and “how are you?”

Does not this
connection
reach beyond
who you can see
in front of you –
are you not
connected,
do not your
loved ones
who no longer
share this
physical space –
do they not
wish to say,
“hello?”

Might it be
a thought
that flashes in,
that makes you
smile,
that warms
your heart –
you may not
have been
thinking of them
a minute before –
but then
are they not
here?
Hello.

Might a greeting
from the other side
come from an
image,
a picture you see,
through a chain
of events
that leaves you
shaking your head –
is not the
message received?
Hello.

Your loved ones
may use nature –
a bird,
a feather,
or butterfly –
what do you see
that makes your
heart Know –
your loved one
is saying –
hello.

Wherever you are,
wherever you go –
inside or outside,
do they not
find a way –
be it “pennies from heaven”
or lights that
turn on –
hello,
hello,
hello.

Yes, you may
question
at times what
you see –
you wish to
be connected,
you send messages, too –
but is there
not a knowing,
when you smile
and receive
the “hello”
and “I love you?”

Will Love not find
its way always
to you,
as You Are Love,
can you not
feel it, too?
Is there not Love
in every “hello?”

Is your loved one
not saying,
“I am here
with you”
and “yes, I feel
your love, too!”

Hello,
with Love,
hello.

A Father’s Love

20170618 XPicture

6/18/17

There are many
faces to a father –
it is a complicated
role.

Might it be
the face of a lion,
watching over
his pride,
defending all
with the fierceness
of a warrior
bred to protect?

Might his role
include the antics
of a monkey,
who loves
to play and joke –
keeping everyone
laughing
when laughter
is what is
needed most?

Does his role
not include
being a teacher –
passing down
traditions learned,
he may be patient,
he may be hurried –
it is not
in the delivery,
is it not
in what he shares –
does not a
father show
who he is
with those
he loves?

You have expectations
of a father
that are as varied
as there are dads –
but at its very core,
does not a father’s love
shape who you are –
you may feel close,
you may wish
for more,
but does not
a father’s love
touch you deep
within your heart?

There are many
faces to a father –
it is a complicated
role –
but is there not
the Face of Love
when a father
sees his child –
when the child
sees the Love –
there is father,
there is dad.
There Is Love.
