Shining Light

Sky.
Clouds.
Mountains.
Light.

Do they not
form a mosaic
of images –
shifting
as the light
reflects off
the clouds
in the sky,
sweeping shadows
across mountains –
a seemingly
choreographed display
that changes
with the light?

Does not
morning,
afternoon,
evening
light
change your
perspective
of how you
see outside?

Do you not see
varying perspectives
even different textures –
depending on
how much light
is shining
and what is it
reflecting on?

Yes, is not light
a great illuminator –
can it not
chase shadows away –
might you
gain perspective,
a different view
when you shine
and look
with light?

There are many ways
to look around,
to notice what
catches your eye,
can you turn up
your Light
to illuminate,
to see what reflects
back to you,
to gain perspective,
to see with
new eyes –
might it help
to shine
your Light?

Might you see
a mosaic
of images –
shifting as
your Light
reflects off
what you see –
might you
be aware
of other Lights
shining,
might your Light
bring more Light?

Your light can help
illuminate the shadows,
to bring clarity
to what is
hard to see –
is it not Love
that turns up
the Light –
can you change
the landscape
by shining
your Light?

Do not be afraid
of the darkness –
it only is
the absence of Light –
turn up the
Light and Love
That You Are –
does not Light
change your perspective
of what is
reflected off You?

The Source
of Light
is Love –
as You Are Love,
You Are Light.

Shine.
Reflect.
Turn it up.
Shine on,
dear Light,
Shine.

Always Connected

20170615 XPicture

6/15/17

You ask for help,
you wish for
a sign 
from above,
from within –
a reminder
of the connection
that you know
exists,
like a program
running in the
background
of your life.

And we wish
to remind you –
are you not
being guided
at all times –
are you not
always connected,
even if you
are not aware
of this help?

Yes, you can
keep your eyes
open to this
knowledge,
to this awareness –
but can help
not arrive
in subtle ways?

Might guidance come
in a thought,
a feeling that
feels right,
a person that you meet,
even turning away
from something else –
can put you in
the right direction
as you receive
answers to the
questions
that you seek?

You are bombarded
by information –
even by the thoughts
running through
your mind –
can you pause
for a moment,
to check in
with your heart –
what is your
feeling,
not your thought
that comes your way –
is this not
when you light up
the connections
in this web
that you are
always connected to?

Yes, you may
not see
or have
an awareness
of all things,
that you are
connected to
in this life
and beyond –
but you are
always,
eternally connected
to Love.

Yes, it is affirming
to remember,
to see a sign,
to feel
the nudge,
but Love
walks with you
wherever you
may go.

There is a hand
holding yours –
you never walk alone.

Always connected.
Always supported.
Always Loved.

Answer With Love

20170605 XPicture

6/05/17

There are answers
to your questions –
upon reflection,
do they not come?
Is there not a
phrase, to
“sleep on it,”
that may provide
the time and space
you need –
when you ponder,
do you not
give yourself time
for your mind
to let go –
so that your
answers can
bubble up
to the surface
from your
higher state
of Be-ing?

And might you
check your answer
in your gut
and in your heart –
if an answer
is not sufficient,
is that not
when the question
returns,
might you also
ask what is
the question
to ask?

Might there be answers
to questions
not yet formed –
as you open
to the guidance
that has been there
all along –
you have help,
you have support,
yes, you have
free choice as well –
but does it
not feel good
to have choices
formed from Love?

Yes the Universe
may intervene
to put you on
a different tract –
sometimes it is
hard to find
the answers
to your questions
that are asked in fear –
yes, ego tries
to protect you,
but might you
be missing out –
on knowing
the answers
to your questions
asked with Love?

Can you reframe
your questions
and put them
in a loving Light –
might it be
the solution you seek
is to look
in a different way,
might the answer
to your question
is to ask a different one –
“Where is Love
and how do I
let Love guide the way?”

Ask Love.
Receive Love.
Question all
but Love.
Answer with Love.
Respond with Love.

You Know
the answer –
Love.

Be Surprised

20170511XPicture

5/11/17

Do you not sometimes
surprise yourself?
And is this 
not usually
a pleasant surprise?

Does a surprise not
happen when
you are expecting
a different outcome,
but does not
something happen
in spite of yourself
that surprises
even you?

And which “you”
is the one
who is surprised?
Is it not the ego,
who sets the guidelines,
the rules to follow,
the procedure to take
to insure things
will happen
how they are “supposed”
to be?

Is it not ego
that will be surprised
when you do things
in a different way,
or an outcome happens
when you least
expect it,
getting “surprising” results –
is not ego surprised
that you did not
follow the usual
or typical way?

There is an
uncomfortableness
that ego feels
when you enter a state
of not knowing
all of the “hows”,
for is not ego
an expert planner –
and does not
ego resist
when you wish to let go
to let things happen
and fall into place?

Does ego not
grudgingly acknowledge
that some things happen
for a greater good –
somehow an outcome
that you did not expect
makes you pleasantly
surprised?

Can you get
more comfortable
in the place
of not setting limits,
not holding yourself back –
let ego manage
what ego is good at,
as you expand
your possibilities
beyond the horizon
of what you can see –
can you accept
what will happen,
can you let yourself
be surprised?

Can you play
with imagination,
can you enter into
a state of allowance,
do not some surprises
exceed your expectations,
is it not Humility
that you feel
when you are part
of a greater flow?

Allow.
Accept.
Imagine.
Limitless
Eternal
Love.
No surprise –
That You Are Love.

As Above . . .

Push the button.
Take the elevator
to the top.

Would this not
be an analogy
you might use,
to visualize
rising “up”
to a place,
to a different perspective,
to a higher
vantage point –
to your Higher Self?

And once
at the “top”,
do you not
remove yourself
from the hustle
and the bustle,
giving you time
to think,
to reflect,
to absorb
what’s been
going on
“down” below?

And we use
above and below
as examples
of different states
of be-ing,
of your awareness –
for is not
your Higher Self
with you
all the time?

But in the
day to day
of life
and its distractions,
the work,
the play
that you experience –
the learning
that takes place,
does not your
human-ness
take over
to get you
through the day,
or so you think?

Is not your
Higher Self
always there –
you think
assisting from
the sidelines,
for is it not
difficult to see
the bigger picture
when you are
in the day to day
down on the street –
until you push
the button to
see the view
from the top?

Might your Higher Self
be the One
who is directing you
here or there –
does not inspiration
feel as if it is
dropped in from above?

Even if you
are not aware
of the view
from above –
as you are
always connected
to All That Is –
there is not
a separate place
to go –
you cannot separate
yourself from Love –
but does it not
help to see the Truth
of Who You Are –
do you not
sometimes need
to push the button
to get to the top –
to see the view
from a different place,
to be aware
there is more
to You
than meets
the eye?

Might you push
the button often
throughout your
day to day –
can you raise
your awareness
to the Love
That You Are –
to the Love
that Always Is –
incorporating
All of You,
not on separate floors
that you must
travel to –
might you be aware
and integrate
All of You
at all times
to Be the
Love That You Are?

Push the button
to remind yourself
that You Are Love,
then realize
you need not
go anywhere
to find the Love
that is always
within you.

You Are Here.
You Are Home.
You Are Love.

 

Serving Love

20170506 XPicture

5/06/17

To be of service.

To serve,
to give,
to help,
to believe
in something
that is outside of you
and your daily needs –
does it not
feel good
to be of service
to others?

And are there not
a plethora of ways
to serve –
be it in
the military,
with community,
performing any
civic duty,
you may be paid
or volunteer –
any way that
you can help
to be of service
to someone,
something outside
of yourself?

Is there not
a sense,
even a need
to extend a hand,
to help someone,
to be of service,
to do “good”,
does it not
make you feel
good as well?

Is serving
not extending
a part of
yourself –
saying yes,
“I am here
to serve you?”

But is serving
not reciprocal –
is there not
satisfaction
that you feel –
when you help
someone does it
not help you, too?

Might you be
serving the Love
that flows through
each of you –
as you are
an extension
of the Love
of All That Is –
as you extend
service to another,
are you not
also serving Source?

Is not being
of service
an act of surrender
that serves
a greater good –
is there anything
greater than the
Love of the Divine?
Is this not
the Love
that also flows
through You?

So when providing
an act of service –
are you not
honoring the Love
That You Are –
yes, you extend yourself,
but do you
not receive
what you so
freely give?

As you serve Spirit,
the Love of All That Is –
does not surrender
to this Love
let you Be
the Love That You Are –
are not All served
even when
you serve
One?

To Be of service
is to Be Love.
Give.
Receive.
Serve Spirit.
Serve Love.
In all ways,
always,
Love.

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.
