A Loving Space

Create space.

This could be
in a moment,
or in the
physical space
you are,
are there not times
when self-care
means,
to observe life
from afar –
step back,
observe,
does not this
distance
help you to
see,
when you create space
do you not see with
greater clarity?

With different eyes,
another perspective,
might you experience
a different view,
is it not hard
to understand,
when something is
so close to you,
have you not experienced
a greater Truth,
when you contemplate
from here –
when you can
create space
in your life,
or in your thoughts
that tend to gravitate
toward fear?

Create space
with your breath,
be aware of the
space between,
find the balance
in your doing-ness
and in Be-ing
your Shining Light,
when it is Peace
that you long for,
can you not find it
in this space –
that feels like Home,
that comforts you,
surrounding you
in any place.

Create space
for Love,
that is never
far away.
Let Love fill
all of your spaces,
Be a place
for Love
today.

One of You

There is fluidity
with your soul,
you may be aware,
you may not know,
but as you trust
your intuition,
are you not communicating
with All of You,
as you are part
of the Greater Whole,
might it not matter
how you “know” –
what feels right,
what does not fit,
yes, you can question some
or all of it,
but as you open
even more,
do you not find
it is You
who is opening doors –
to You,
to Truth,
to Love?

As human you want
to know why,
you wish for answers
to come down
from the sky,
but does not understanding
come from within,
you are connected
so much more
than you think,
might you step back,
be ready to receive,
what your human side
finds hard to perceive,
find the common theme
that life is made of –
do you not Light up
when you know
and sense Love?

Body, mind
and soul
work together
as One,
sometimes you feel
separated,
missing All,
feeling one,
let the One
of You
let you know
what you are
made of –
You Are integrated,
fully Whole,
and always Love.

Restoration

When you wash
and wax a car,
do you not clean it
to take off the grime,
when wax applied
and then removed,
are you not restoring
its original shine,
no matter what
mud puddles
you may drive through,
can you not be restored
to the original You?

Yes, there is maintenance
as you take care
of you,
feeding,
clothing,
safety is important, too,
you shower or bathe
to wash the body clean,
what spiritual tools
might help to restore
your bright sheen,
your soul is always
shiny and new,
when you clean off
life’s dust,
does not your Essence
come shining through?

Make spiritual practice
a part of your day,
say hello to You –
in the silence
or throughout your day,
set a timer
or reminder
to help you see,
you and your soul
are in this together,
bound inextricably –
when you need to
rejuvenate,
restore,
ask your soul
to shine brightly
evermore –
clear a path,
make a bridge,
You Are There –
ready to shine
Love’s glowing Light
Everywhere.

Your soul
is an eternal Light
that shines.
Clear it off,
turn it up,
shine your Light!

Carpe Diem

If there is a problem
you encounter,
do you not first
tackle it with
your mind,
sorting through
possible solutions,
looking for
an answer that
you may find,
then might you
open up more
possibilities,
by turning it over
to your soul –
can your soul
not expand your mind,
nudging,
guiding you
so you will know?

Inspiration,
brain-storming,
do you not wonder
where some ideas
come from –
it matters not
the source of what
inspires you –
are you not All
a part of the
One?

Step back from what
you are analyzing,
where you may only
see one side,
when you expand to
your greater awareness,
can you not change your
perception
and see all sides?
Might it be like looking
at what is on paper,
then seeing it all
in virtual 3D,
does not your soul
stretch your mind
helping you to see
all possibilities?

Yes, honor your mind,
it has served and
helped you well,
but you are part
of something greater,
that your soul knows
very well –
dip into the wellspring
of knowledge
that helps to connect
the dots you see –
You Are limitless,
You Are creative,
You Are potential –
All Possibility.

Stretch beyond
your comfort zone,
your soul knows
the way –
Be inspired.
Be bold.
With Love,
now seize
the day!

Expanding to Peace

When your human side
feels scattered,
when daily tasks
begin to build,
you may wish
to retreat
into solace,
and withdraw from what
ego wants you
to feel,
but is there not
another path
to Peace,
you may need stillness
to sense it there –
but when you expand
your Awareness,
is there not room
for All, there?

You need not run
and hide from ego,
that comes knocking
at your door,
there may be lessons
learned
by bumping into
a closed door,
and when you can
expand your view
and look with the
Eyes of the Soul,
when you rise above
the details,
is there not more
that you will know?

See from a bigger picture,
there is Peace when
you accept with
open arms,
when you close up
and push back,
do you not feel
smaller
and not as strong –
expand the You
that has this
covered,
with Strength and Courage
can you trust
to see,
that All is so
that you may
see the Love
in All you see.

Expand
when you
contract,
let Love
keep showing You
the way.
There is Peace
that resides
within you,
Love Is Here
in All ways,
Always.

Remember to Know

Can you look beyond
any human face,
to sense someone’s spirit
within their heart,
yes, humanness
can make it hard
for you to believe,
that Love always
connects you,
though it may be
difficult to see –
do not let the
human world
always rule the
show,
open your heart,
look with Soul Eyes,
you will remember,
you will know.

Does not kindness let
the heart opening begin,
and Gratitude will
open many doors
that were closed
to keep you in,
let the Love in you
flourish,
it will know where
to go –
in your heart,
you will remember,
you will know.

This is not creating
something new,
this is You in your
natural state,
you need not completely
change,
or begin with a
blank slate,
might you let go of
the armor
you thought you needed
to be safe,
is it not Love that
is Strength and Courage,
that comes forth
when you release layers
of your beliefs?

Look beyond.
Open your heart.
Let Love show –
You Are Love.
All Is Love,
You remember,
You know.

Eternally You

Transition –
movement from
here to there.

In the linear world,
you can look back,
to see where you are
or how far you have
come,
are you not sometimes
surprised
at how much
you have grown,
or changed,
or learned,
or expanded?

And who is it
that is able to take
a look back,
as well as see
where
You Are
right now –
does not the
Eternal You,
your Knowing Self,
have awareness
and the eyes to see
You
as you transition
and move
from there to here,
from here to there?

And through this
movement
of experiences,
can you not
experience
You as stillness,
can you not slow
or even stop time,
in any place
or at any time –
for as Eternal You,
do you not exist
within,
beyond,
Everywhere at once,
transcending time?

You Are Love
in every moment,
through all of time,
when you expand
your awareness
of your Knowing Self,
can you not see
with loving eyes,
the Love that swells
within your heart
and holds the beat,
the rhythm
of All That Is?

Move and flow,
be still and know –
All Is Love
and Love Is You.
With every beat
and in the space between –
experience,
Be,
Love.
