An Open Heart

IMG_4794

Live from the heart.
Connect at the heart.
Open your heart.

And as the heart
is your connection
to the Universe,
to God,
to Source,
to the Divine Love
of All That Is –
it does not matter
the label
you place upon
the Source of Love
that flows through you –
you wish to
always open
up your heart.

But with an open heart,
do you not at times
feel vulnerable,
as you know
there is emotion
that is centered
in your heart?

Does not your heart ache
when strong emotion
floods you with feeling –
are there not times
when you feel
your heart may break?

Does it sometimes
not feel safe
to lead with the heart –
do you not wish
to close it down
to protect
what you perceive
may hurt you?

Yes, the heart can feel
what comes to it
from outside –
and is it not
always looking
for the Love?

And if the heart
were a one-way door,
only able to receive love
from an outside source –
is that not when
you feel vulnerable –
putting you at risk
to experience hurt?

But as the heart
is the center
of Who You Really Are –
as it is the
source of
Divine Love
that flows through you –
can you direct
this powerful flow
of the Love That You Are –
allowing it to
encircle you,
embrace you,
remind you –
with every breath you take,
with every beat of
your amazing heart –
“I Love You?”

And what if
your open heart,
were so full
it did not need
to ask from
an outside source –
“Do you love me?”

For is not
an open heart,
able to see Love
wherever it looks –
there is no shortage
of Love to find
when Love Is
Everywhere.

And where is Love?
Love Is You.
It is in your open heart –
can you open up
your heart to Love You?

Be vulnerable
with the Love
That Is You.
You are safe
in the warm embrace
of the Love of You.

Open all sides
of your heart –
and feel the
Love That You Are.

Live from the heart.
Connect with your heart.
Open your heart
to You,
Dear One,
to You.

You cannot Be
anything
but Love.

Book of Love

IMG_4791

3/09/17

You visualize a book
with a picture in it
for you to fill in –
by turning over pages
that have printed on them
a piece of the picture –
a part of the scene –
that is only printed
upon each new page –
and as you keep turning,
each page adds to
what you see in
the picture before you;
with each page turned
can you now see
more of the picture –
until there is
another page to turn?

At any given time
as you look at this book –
you may be able to see
what is there
before you –
do you not experience
your beautiful story –
one page,
one chapter
at at time?

Does your understanding
not filter through
the pages you have turned,
the scene that is before you –
but as You Are
the Author of your Story –
do you not have glimpses,
revelations as to
what may happen next?

But as you do not wish
to spoil the story –
do you not savor
each page that you turn –
knowing that in time,
the rest of the story
will reveal itself
with each page
that you see?

And as this scene
builds upon each page –
as more parts of
the picture
begin to fill in –
does your perspective
not change
as you see with
greater clarity,
what the Author
wishes for you
to see?

And when you think
you have filled in
the entire picture-
bringing a greater understanding,
admiring its beauty,
do you not wish
to turn to the next page,
the next chapter,
or even to change the book –
is there not more
to write,
to read,
to explore
as the Author of
the Story of You?

Your mind only knows
what pictures it sees
at any given time
in the Book of You –
but as You Are
the Author of your story –
can you lead the way
with Love in your heart?

Is not your
Never-ending Story
based upon
the Truth of Love?

Let Love be your guide
as you turn each page,
as You Are co-creator
with the greatest Author.
Let Love be the storyline
in the Book of You.

Be the Love Story
that you wish to read.
Unfolding,
experiencing,
turning each page
with Love.

Walk With Light

img_4771

2/27/17

Walk in the Light
that shines within.

How can you see if
your light
is shining within?
Might there be darkness
making you look outside
to find a light
to turn on
to illuminate your path?

Yes, there are times
when an inspirational spark
may help to
light your way –
but does that spark
not help you see
You Are the Light?

Walk in the Light
that shines within.

And as you turn
up your light,
do not others
feel the glow –
does not the
Light within
expand to reach
more Light?

And as Light
is a shining sign
of Universal Love –
can not all hearts
understand
when they feel
the Light?

And as you
walk in the Light
that shines within –
can your Light
not be seen
by other Lights?

What if you look
at another –
and all you see
is Light,
do you not speak
the Universal Language
of Love?

If all walked
in the Light
that shines within –
would not every be-ing
find their way Home?

There would be
no more darkness,
no one would feel
that they are lost –
to walk with
the Light
is to Be
Who You Are.

And Who Are You?
You Are Light.
You Are Love.

Be the Love and Light
that always
shines within.

Play of Life

img_4764

2/20/17

You wait for
the curtain to open
on the next act
of a play.
You think you know
what may happen –
you sit and
try to figure it out
based on what
has already occurred.

As the curtain
slowly opens,
do you not
take in the scene –
and does not
what you thought
would be –
disappear,
as you are in the moment
of what is playing out
before your eyes –
no longer hidden
behind the curtain,
no longer a
thought that
you created
based on what might
have been?

As you live
in linear times –
is it not easy
to scan your timeline –
yes, there is
a past,
present
and future
that your mind
has access to –
that you often
play,
rewind
and forward.

But if you look ahead,
guessing what will happen
behind the closed curtain,
do you not miss
what is playing out
before your eyes
in this moment
of Now?

And when the curtain
finally opens –
might you experience
surprise or disappointment
as you compare
what you thought
the scene “should” be?

There is a perfect timing,
an order that unfolds –
the curtains will rise
and unveil
the next act
as it is ready
to be revealed.

Can you watch
the play unfolding –
being a part of it
here and now –
with a heart
that is open –
with Love and Trust
that you are exactly
where you need to be
in this Play of Life?

And if a scene
is not to your liking,
if you would
prefer something else –
the next curtain will open,
another opportunity
will appear –
what resonates
within your heart
will be revealed.

Be in the moment
of Where You Are
right now.
Be in the Love
of Who You Are
Always.

No matter what plays out,
in the unfolding
scenes of Life –
You Are
Always
Love.

Bravo.
Well done.
All Is Well.

Inside Out

img_4760

2/16/17

Inside out.
Outside in.

Are there not times
when your body
acts like a
protective shield –
keeping the outside out
and the inside in?

And with this
barrier in place –
does your mind
not act as
the sentry guard –
what should you
let out
and what can be
let in?

And yes, there may be
some who have
the key to unlock
the door –
but if each body feels
that it must keep
the inside in
and the outside out –
is there no wonder
why there is separation,
mistrust,
a wariness to be seen
even as you are
hiding in plain sight?

For as you are
so much more
than your body,
does not what
is in your heart –
speaking the language
of You –
wish to communicate,
to be let out
so that you may speak
the Truth of
Who You Are?

And do you
not gravitate toward
the light of another –
a pull that is often unseen –
as you extend yourself
to let the outside in?

What if you
made the choice
to turn inside out –
to open up your heart,
leading with
the Light in You –
would not your light
then burn
ever more brightly
as it would have
more space to shine?

And if everyone turned
inside out,
leading with the heart –
would there no longer
need to be
any barriers to protect,
as the Love within
is now shared
as Love throughout?

Lead with the inside out.
Be One
with the Light
that shines
through All.

Inside.
Outside.
There Is Love.

Gift of Love

img_4757

2/14/17

A day of love.

Is there not
a conscious effort –
a conscious awareness
to celebrate love,
to share love,
to extend love
on this day
that is set aside
for love?

And yes,
there are many
interpretations
on this “Day of Love” –
as are there not
expectations
on what to give,
or to receive
that symbolize
the Gift of Love?

And as this
Day of Love
is often focused
on those who
have expressed
love for another,
may not this
Day of Love
bring forth the memory
of a loved one
that is no longer
physically there?

But is not any day
that brings love into
the conscious awareness
of a collective of minds –
is there not then
a collective consciousness
that together brings back
a focus on Love?

And as love seeps
into the conscious awareness –
for there to be
a conscious effort
to celebrate,
share,
and extend love –
can not this single
Day of Love
be carried forward
as hearts are opened
in this loving space?

And can you imagine
if everyday
were a Day of Love
and the Gift of Love
that is shared by All
is the awareness of
the Love That Is You?

Would not everyone
give and receive
the perfect Gift of Love?

As You Are
a Gift of Love –
may you celebrate,
share
and extend
this Love –
so that others
may see their
Gift of Love
reflected back to them.

Make everyday
a Day of Love.
Each day,
gift yourself
with the awareness that
as You Are Love –
You Are Loved.

The Gift of Love
Is You.

Always Love

20170210-xpicture

2/10/17

“Whenever you need me –
I’ll be there . . .
I’ll be around.”

And these words
from a song
hold a promise
that cannot be broken;
are not your
loved ones in Spirit
always there,
always around,
in your thoughts,
in your heart –
a part of your
collective consciousness?

And though you
feel the separation,
the change in
your physical world –
are you not
always connected,
always joined,
by the Love
that you share?

And if you cannot be
truly separated –
does that not
call into question,
how could you
ever be separate
from Love?

And if you cannot
be separate from Love,
do you begin to realize
that You Are Love
and can never be
separate from
All That Is?

And as All There Is –
Is Love,
is it not this Love
that surrounds you,
is within you,
that is Who You Are –
is this not the space,
the place,
where you and
your loved ones
are always together?

“I’ll be there . . .
I’ll be around.”

Do you see
that your loved ones
cannot Be
anywhere but in this
place and space
where Love Is Everlasting,
where Love cannot end –
as there is
no end to Love?

All That Is –
Is Love.
And You Are That.

Always there.
Always around.
Love.

Lead With Love

20170122-xpicture

1/22/17

Lead with Love.

Are you looking to follow
other’s footsteps around –
are you waiting for
another to choreograph
the next step?
Lead with Love.

Yes, there are a variety
of dances and steps
that you can learn
to express yourself –
to be in rhythm,
to move as one –
but what is the
underlying truth
to the dance?
Lead with Love.

You can dance
by yourself –
listening to the beat
of your own song
that plays in your heart –
you can dance with others,
sharing the pulsing beat
that grows far and wide,
felt around the world –
and as you move to
the beat,
the rhythm,
the vibration,
the most important step –
is to Lead with Love.

And what happens,
when Love is the music,
the vibration,
the rhythm,
that you follow at first –
only to realize
the music is not
what you hear
on the outside –
it is already playing
in your heart.

And when You and All
Lead with Love –
will you not look around,
sharing smiles,
in the realization that you all
know the same dance,
for is this not
the Dance of Love
that you have come to know
when you Lead with Love?

You know the steps
to the Dance of Love.
There are many variations
of dances and steps
that you can use
to express yourself –
to be in rhythm,
to move as One.

There are no wrong steps
when you Lead with Love.

There is only,
always,
Love.

Eyes of Love

20170119-xpicture

1/19/17

Look into the eyes.

You can do this
in a mirror
and you are surprised
that it takes some practice,
some getting used to –
to really look into
the eyes of the soul.

Do not people
seldom look at
each other,
eye to eye –
does not one
usually turn away
to break the gaze,
almost as if to hide –
keeping others out
in fear of what
they may see –
or is it in fear
of what others
may see in you?

Now look into the eyes
of a child very young –
do you not see
them delight in
looking back at you?
Are they not waiting
to be seen –
waiting for that
Look of Love –
with less filters
covering up their
eyes of love?

Yes, the eyes
can be reflective
of the ego –
casting judgement,
or seeing separation –
the eyes of ego
can be hard
to hold a gaze.

But truly the eyes
are a window to
your soul –
when you look
at another
with these Eyes of Love –
do your souls
not rush in to say,
“There You Are!”

And in that moment –
however fleeting
when you look
at a stranger –
really seeing them
with the Eyes of Love –
are they not waiting
to be seen –
waiting for that
Look of Love –
with less filters
covering up their
eyes of love –
like the child,
do they not open up
the Window of their Soul?

Look into the eyes
with the Eyes of Love.
Say hello to You
in the eyes of All.

I See You.
I Am You.
We Are One.
Love.

Train of Love

20170107-xpicture

1/07/17

You see a train track –
a good indicator
that there may be
a train,
arriving sometime.
There may be a gate
that opens and closes,
telling you when
it is safe to cross –
or when to wait.

But can you not
touch the track
and be very still –
is there not
an almost imperceptible
vibration,
that gives you the feeling
that somewhere
down the line,
out of your view,
comes a train
that will arrive
with all of
the sights and sounds
that cannot be missed?

Is there not much information
that is available to
your usual senses –
and as you grow
your awareness
and understand that
there is so much more –
at times it is hard to
turn down the noise
from the rushing train –
so that you may sense
the subtle vibrations
that are available to you.

Do you not have
an antennae
that is able to reach
and pick up information
to help guide you
through the noise
that can make it
hard to hear?

Yes, as you open your heart –
is that not where
your passions ignite –
firing you up
to look for the paths,
the signs that support you,
as you move along
the track of your soul?

Listen to your heart.
There are subtle and
sometimes not so subtle
directions there –
as you still your mind
and allow your heart
to be the
Conductor of your Soul.

All aboard this
Train of Love –
that moves along the
Track of your Soul.

There is no stopping
the Love That Is You.
Full steam ahead.
With Love,
always,
with Love.
