Serving Love

20170506 XPicture

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.

Spark of Light

illuminated bulb

4/30/17

A plane on
the ground,
a big heavy
piece of metal –
who would know
or believe
that it could fly –
if you had not
seen it
in the air before?

So commonplace
are planes in
the air,
that you no longer
take much notice –
but what inspired
the thoughtful dream
that put airplanes
in the sky –
or any new invention
that requires thinking
outside the box?

Is it not when
you let your
mind,
reach out untethered
from your story
or beliefs
that things must
happen a certain way –
are there not
a multitude
of possibilities,
inspirations,
drops from a
Source –
that can spark
creative thinking,
imagining,
what might be
if you let
reflective thoughts
come trickling in?

If you have a
problem,
or are trying to
figure something out –
even if you are
not searching for
a solution,
might you relax
your thoughts –
are not thoughts
only a part
of information
that is available
to You?

Do you not credit
inspiration,
as like a
lightening bolt
from the sky –
with no idea
where an idea
came from –
is it not often
instantaneous,
do you not
liken it to
a light bulb
turning on in
a flash?

Does not a flash
of inspiration
often come
when you are
not thinking –
might it come
when you stop trying,
throwing up your hands
to ask for help?

Might you let go
of needing to have
all the answers –
are there not
also answers
to questions
you do not know
to ask?

Free your mind.
Let go
and let information
flow.
Be open to inspiration –
ask for help
when you feel stuck.
Let each Spark of Light
within
connect with
Sparks of Light
without.

Be expansive.
Be reflective.
Be inspired.
Be the Light.
Open up.
Let go.
Be 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.

Flow of Love

Mist at Tone River

4/15/17

The flow
of a river –
no matter
how big
or how small
the river is,
there is a current,
a movement,
a flow.

And do you
not feel
this current
when you walk
in the river –
you may not
see the direction
of the water
moving on
the surface,
but a current
runs deep,
there is a
direction,
a movement,
a flow.

And does not
this current
pull along
whatever has entered
the water,
the flow,
yes the physical properties
of the earth,
the laws of nature,
can explain
how a river flows,
but is there not
a mystical pull,
a mesmerizing draw
to the sound,
the movement,
the feel,
as you dip
your hand
in the water
to experience
the current,
the flow?

And yes,
you can experience
the current
of a river
by paddling a canoe
or kayak
through waters
that move,
that flow –
and do you
not feel as one
with the water
if you are able
to navigate well –
and not
bump into rocks
or to paddle
against the current –
do you not
feel and sense
when you are
in the flow?

Will the flow
not carry you along
if you allow yourself
to be guided –
once you are
“In the flow”
do you not need
to work so hard?

Is there not
a flow,
a current,
a movement
of least resistance
when you experience
the flow,
the “sweet spot”,
when everything
comes together
and unfolds
with perfect timing –
when a task
feels easy,
when you are not
fighting to move
upstream –
would you not
prefer to be
moving with
the flow?

Are there not
obstacles or bumps
along the way
that give you clues,
that allow you
to make adjustments,
so you may navigate
a smoother route
to take?

A task may
be daunting,
but are you not
able to accomplish
what you thought
was insurmountable –
when you put
yourself in
the Flow of Love
and allow yourself
to be guided
with love and support
along the way?

Ask for help.
Step into the Flow.
As you go
with the current,
the movement
of the Flow of Love –
can you let
it unfold
in front of you?

There is much
to experience
in life –
and like the river,
there will be obstacles
that you encounter
along the way –
but as you let
the Flow of Love
be your guide,
might you experience
a smoother ride?

Let go.
Step into the Flow.
Let Love surround you
as you experience
the movement,
the current,
the Flow of Love
That You Are.
Be One with Love
and Flow.

Room for Love

20170411 XPicture

4/11/17

Step aside.
Make room.
Surrender.

If you are
grappling with
an issue,
tension mounts,
and you feel tight,
may you loosen
up your grip,
let go –
slip into
the energy of surrender.

When you realize
you do not have
all of the
answers you
think you need,
is there not help,
Divine Guidance?
Let go –
slip into
the energy of surrender.

Letting go
is not giving up,
but it may be
giving to –
do you not
nod your head
and acknowledge,
there is something
greater than you –
can you feel
the Love
that steps in,
when you step aside
and make room
for the loving energy
that flows –
when you let go
and slip into
the energy of surrender?

May you feel
some relief
that you are not
in this alone?
You may think
you have control,
that it is all
up to you –
does that thinking
not back you up
against a wall –
do you not need
space to breathe,
and to Be?

Is there not
more room
to breathe,
to work things out
more efficiently,
when you partner
with the Love,
the guidance,
the co-creation –
when you let go
and slip into
the energy of surrender?

Step aside.
Make room.
Surrender.

As you open
up this space –
knowing it is
not all up
to you –
there is intelligence
in the Love
that flows –
do things not
fit together
and work out
when you let go
and slip into
the energy of surrender?

As you make room
for Love,
is not Love
making room
for You –
to see the Whole,
to be in the
Flow of Love
that smoothes
out the path
in front of you –
you need not fight
to make things fit –
when you let go
and slip into
the energy of surrender.

Work with Love.
Flow with Love.
Make room for Love.

Let Love.
Be Love.
Surrender.

Connect With Love

20170410 XPicture

4/10/16

What connects you
to more than you –
to the greater aspect
of You,
that is connected
to All That Is?

You may stand
with your arms
out wide
to soak up
the light of a
moon beam,
so bright,
that it casts shadows
in the darkest night –
are you not
connected now?

You may turn
your face up
to the warm
spring sun
and sense
the turn
toward spring,
bringing hope
and light
as you bask
in the warmth
of the sun’s
healing rays –
are you not
connected now?

You may smile back
at a child’s
smiling face –
a face open
and free
with no walls
in between –
does not a
simple smile
radiate an
open heart –
are you not
connected now?

There are moments
in your day,
when you take
time to pause –
you catch a glimpse
or share a moment,
when you discover,
as you sense
these connections,
as do they not
feel so good –
are you not
always connected
to Love?

When you feel alone
or when you
feel small,
you have forgotten
that You Are
always connected
to All That Is.

You Are
the moon,
that brightens
the night.
You Are
the sun,
that warms
your face.
You Are
the Love
looking back
at you –
do you see
you are
connected Now?

As You Are
an aspect
of All That Is –
are you not
always connected
to Love?

There is no more
that you need do.
Connect with You.
Connect with All.
Connect with Love.

Words of Love

heartwords

4/09/17

Words.

You use words
to convey
meaning,
thought,
and when words
are put together
in a beautiful,
loving way,
might they
express emotion,
emit a feeling
that goes beyond
a jumble of
words fitting together
on a page.

And do you
not use the expression,
“there are no words”
when the mere word
cannot stand up
to the emotion,
the vision,
the feeling,
that you experience
within your heart?

But you will
always go back
to words –
for as Love Is
expressed
in an infinite
number of ways –
is there not
a pull
to describe
the Language of Love?

There has been
a never-ending
number of words
that have been written
to define
to convey,
to express
what Love Is –
and will there
not be an unlimited
number more?

And do you
not try to
“put into words”
how a song
“strikes a chord”
and resonates with you –
do you not use words
to describe a
painting
that is truly
beyond words,
but are you
not compelled
to use words
to share
that experience,
the depths of feeling
that it brings –
do you not sometimes
think a feeling
has not happened
until you share it
with words?

Is not the
Language of Love,
in whatever form
it takes,
is it not
meant to be shared,
is there not
a pull to describe,
what is indescribable –
for how can words
convey the magic,
the beauty,
the experience
of Love?

But as words
are more than
words written on
a page –
are not words
another gateway
to your soul?

Do you not
first need to feel,
to go within,
to free your mind –
are not words
another means,
another way
to experience
and Be –
using the
Language of Love
to express what
Love Is?

There have been
many words written
and there will be
many, many more –
if words are a
way to share
the Love of
All That Is –
Be loving
with your words –
let words express
the Language of Love.

Write Love.
Express Love.
Share Love.
Be Love.

May these
Words of Love
remind You that
You Are Loved.

With Love

When you are not sure
how to move forward,
what is the next
step to take,
what decisions need
to be made,
when you seek
more clarity –
ask with Love.

There is momentum
in movement,
as you take
your first step –
do you not start
a ball rolling –
will not one movement
lead to another –
can you feel
the energy shifting?
Move with Love.

And with movement
comes a rhythm,
like a train
moving down the track –
linked with cars
behind it follow,
joining in the adventure –
are you not ready
to keep riding,
to see where you
may go?
Explore with Love.

And if you wish
to change direction,
to move to another track,
another experience
may await you –
you are the
conductor on this train –
now that you are moving
it is easy to make
a switch –
there are many paths
to explore.
Change with Love.

You are here
to experience.
You are here
to embody
the Love That You Are.
With Love,
are there not
infinite possibilities
to Be the Love
That You Are?

How can you
ever not be
with Love?

As You Are Love –
Love is always
with You.

With Love,
You Are and
All Is Well.

Timeless

Time is a
linear concept
that you use
to get through
the linear world
that you live in,
work in,
play in.
And yes,
time helps you
to be at
a certain place
at a certain time.

But does not
the concept of time
hover over
your shoulder –
perhaps does time
get more attention
than it deserves?

With time,
you are able
to look back
in time,
to a perceived
beginning –
or to look ahead
to what may be,
what is on the
schedule,
how long will
something last,
when will it end?

Does time not
dwell in the
concept of
a beginning
and end –
is not time
a marker for what
starts and stops,
what moves along
the timeline
of your life?

But as You Are
more than this
human existence –
as You Are Spirit
with an everlasting
soul –
are there not times
when the concept
of time
disappears from
your view?

When you are in
a moment of peace
and tranquility –
is that not a time
when the concept of time
has no place –
or when you are
lost in a project
that brings you Joy –
is that not
a beautiful and peaceful
place to Be?

Might you imagine
when there is no time
tugging at your awareness,
giving you reminders –
is that not a sign
that you are
in the flow,
be-ing in the moment –
is not time a reminder
of your humanness –
with a perceived beginning
and a supposed end?

But as you have
experienced
time standing still –
as you are aware
that You Are more
than what can be
measured in time –
might you acknowledge
that there is
a part of You
that transcends time?

Yes, use time
to organize and structure
your time on earth –
but make time (smile)
to be in the timeless state
of the Love That You Are –
the Place of Peace
where time stands still –
where all you know
is That You Are
expressing,
experiencing,
You.

You Are timeless.
You Are limitless.
In every moment,
You Are Love.
