I Am

The mind is
a powerful
communicator –
giving you
direction,
commands
and thoughts –
it plans
your day,
it keeps
you safe,
but does
it not also
worry and doubt
and sometimes
not see
that You Are Love?

There is no
turning off
the mind –
but is it
not ready
to receive
new direction,
new programming –
do you not
speak a language
that the mind
can receive –
when you tell it
“I Am Love?”

Is there not
a flicker
of understanding,
a familiarity
that seeps in –
the mind may
think the “I”
means separation,
but does not
“I Am”
encompass All?

Does not “I Am Joy”
remind you of
letting go
to reach your
joyful self –
your mind
can visualize
times when you
have had fun,
but does not Joy
touch you
deep inside –
when you say,
“I Am Joy?”

Does not “I Am Strength”
make you stand up tall,
feeling your innate Courage
that comes with Strength –
it is not to overpower,
it is your essence within,
can you not
sense your magnificence
when you say,
“I Am Strength?”

Does not “I Am Gratitude”
bring you right
to your heart –
is that not where
this Journey begins –
when your mind
gets too loud,
when it brings
static to your
Be-ing,
can you begin
with Gratitude –
reminding your mind
that You Are
centered at
the heart –
as you speak
from your Soul –
“I Am Gratitude.”

Remind the mind
of Who You Are.
Use words
that the mind
can understand.
There is no
need to cajole,
no reasoning
to give,
there is only Truth –
and it is –
You Are Love
and
I Am That.

I Am All.
I Am One.
Perfect.
Whole.
Remember.
Remind.

I Am Love.

Remember You

Remember You.

In this life
you surround
yourself
with beliefs,
with what
you need to
believe in,
to make sense
of this physical life –
but when you
strip away
the exterior,
the story –
can you
remember You?

There Is You
that is Everlasting,
that knows Joy
and Peace
and Gratitude –
are these not
tenets that you
wish to find –
that you think
are earned,
or maybe
out of reach –
is this life
not about
the realization
that You Are
All Of That –
as you remember You?

Does not your
ego play
an important role
as you experience
free will,
exercising free choice –
does it not
feel good,
feel right
when you
choose Love –
is that not
where Joy
and Peace reside –
do you not
know Gratitude
when You
Are Love –
when you
remember You?

Can you turn
your thinking
inside out –
as you let
your soul
come out
to play –
there is a balance
with body,
mind,
and spirit –
the Love
that you seek
is already
within you –
did you know
that you are all
you need
to be?
Please don’t
forget to
remember You.

You Are Joy.
You Are Peace.
You are Gratitude
as you remember Love.

You Are All
of That –
take a look
inside,
as you
remember You.

Being Light

20170406 XPicture

4/06/17
Light or heavy.
Dense or fine.
These qualities
are used to
define a rock
and its properties
of matter.
Does not the
large rock
that is dense,
feel heavy
as you lift it –
even as you
know it is energy,
vibrating at
its own rhythm –
it appears as
the solidness
that it is
in your experience
of picking up
the rock.
But as some rocks
are not as dense,
when you pick
another up,
might some of it
crumble off
into finer particles
that were the rock –
that you would
now define as
grit or dust?
And are the particles
now light enough
to be moved about
by the breeze –
no longer heavy
as the rock,
are they now
not light enough
to swirl around?
There are words
in your language
that you use
to describe
energy,
vibration:
heavy, light,
dense, fine –
and are there not
days when you
connect more
to one end
of this spectrum
than the other?
And as You Are energy,
as All Is energy –
do you not search
for the key,
the means,
the way,
to increase your vibration,
to feel the lightness,
to break free –
like the particles
of the rock
that no longer
are as heavy
or as dense –
is there not Joy
in this Lightness of Be-ing?
Yes, and there is
your key,
the way,
the means;
you need not
go out to find Joy
to lift your spirits –
to help you experience
your Lightness of Be-ing –
is not Joy the essence
of Who You Are –
always ready to engage,
is not Joy the lifeline
that looks for
the simple delight,
that connects you
to those things that
make you smile,
make you laugh –
is there not Joy
when you are able
to step outside yourself
and look with Love
at the seriousness
of you?
Joy is always with you.
Joy waits patiently.
Do you not sense
your Lightness of Be-ing
when You Are Joy?
Do you want to increase
your vibration,
do you wish to feel
light and free?
You may find Joy
in even a mundane task –
as you find the vibration
that fills you with Joy –
as you resonate
with the energy
that the Joy within
you brings –
can it not then
be felt by others
who cannot help
but radiate back
to you –
your innate Joy?
And in this joyful energy,
do you not feel
your Lightness of Be-ing,
no longer heavy
as the rock,
light enough to
move around
and to be free?
You Are a Be-ing of Light.
May Joy set you free.
As You Are Joy –
yes, You Are Love.
Be Light.
Be Love.
Be Free.

Law of Love

20170329 XPicture

3/29/17

A ball
bounces up
and down.
How high
it can bounce
depends upon
the force it
takes to
bounce it against
the ground,
so it may defy
the law of gravity
and bounce
back up
in the air.

A trampoline
allows you
to bounce
up and down,
using force
and the trampoline
to propel you up –
does not the trampoline
help you to
defy gravity,
if only for a moment,
do you feel
as if you are flying?

Is not gravity
a reminder of
the rules of
the physical world –
is your default setting
not one that
returns you to
your humanness –
even if you
temporarily learn
how to fly?

But as You Are
always Spirit,
having a human experience
in a physical world –
yes, there are
physical rules to follow,
but can you not
increase your
moments of remembering
Who You really Are?

Does not the
Force of Love
free you from
the heaviness of
the physical world –
can Love not be
the springboard
you need,
much like how
the trampoline
can lift you up –
do you not feel lighter
and able to rise above,
when You Are propelled
by the Force of Love?

Yes your default may be
the human condition,
as the law of gravity
seeks to keep you planted
on the ground –
but do you not
defy this law
each time you jump,
or even with every
step that you take?

Do you not look
to the Force of Love
that flows through you,
that lifts you up
and propels you forward,
does not this Love,
this Law of You
keep reminding you
that there is
more to You
than who is standing
on the ground?

When you remember
Who You Are –
are not instantly
filled with Joy,
like when you
defy gravity –
jumping with Joy
on a trampoline
or bouncing a ball
so high in the air?

Do you not experience Joy
when you sense
the freedom,
the knowing,
that there is more
than this physical world –
does not Love
remind you
that You Are Free?

Defy gravity.
Let it remind you
that as there are rules,
they are made to
be broken.

Be You –
having a human experience.
Be human –
following the
Law of Love.

Let Love remind you
Who You Are.
Fly.
Soar.
Be Free.
Be Love.
Be You.

What If Love?

What if . . .

There are many
questions that
the human mind has –
many answers
that you seek,
often in the
search for Why,
to provide meaning,
for understanding,
or so you think.

And do not
many questions;
“why did that . . .”
“what do I . . . “,
look for answers
that fit into
your belief system –
as do you not look
to that system
to give you a context
that your human mind
needs to
makes sense of
what is happening
around you?

But does this
type of questioning
not keep you in
a neat and tidy box –
a box of beliefs
that uses other beliefs,
to answer the questions
that you have?

Now come back
to the question,
the energy of –
What if . . . .?

Do you not
feel the lid
lifting off
of the box
with this
Question of Possibility –
is it not a question
that questions
your beliefs?

Yes – as you have
a questioning mind,
can you not use
your curiosity,
your thirst for knowledge,
your drive to understand –
can you shift
your focus
from making sense
of what has been
to looking forward
and contemplating –
What if?

Instead of making
things fit
into a neat and tidy box,
for is it not hard
to see the Light
when inside a box –
can there not
be varying options,
“what if this . . . ”
or “what if that . . .” –
can you imagine
each “what if”
pushing a hole
through the box –
does not each opening
let the Light
come shining in?

And as these
rays of Light,
each inspired thought,
each possibility of
What If –
as you expand and grow,
are you not creating
with Light
instead of being
contained in a box?

As You Are
a creation
of All That Is –
are you not
a creative
Force of Love?

What If.
Imagine.
All Is Possible
as All Is Love.

Light and Love
cannot be
contained within
a box.
Take off the lid
and let your
Light and Love shine.

What if –
You Are Love?
Limitless.
Possible.
Love.

A Moment of Joy

IMG_4795

3/13/17

The joy of a child.

It is easy to picture –
as are not children
in touch with Joy –
are they not
beings of expression?
There is no doubt
how a child feels –
you know it
when they feel Joy.

You can look
at a joyful child
and know what it
feels like to
embrace this Joy.
And as you peel back
the memories
of times you were joyful –
yes, whatever
you were doing
may have created
a space,
for you to feel joyous –
but was it not Joy
that bubbled
to the surface,
that was waiting
all along –
no matter the situation-
is not Joy always ready
to be released?

And as you grow older
does it not become harder
to let Joy come out –
to play with you,
you may think Joy
is hiding,
you may think life
is far too serious,
to feel the child’s play
of Joy once again.

But as You Are Joy,
do you not know Joy
when you see a child
dancing with abandon,
when a picture of an animal
touches your heart,
when you listen to music
that moves you to dance,
when you laugh at something silly
until tears come to your eyes –
are there not
moments of Joy
in any moment
that you let go?

Take a moment for Joy.
You need not have
a joyful situation
to tap into
the Joy That You Are –
Joy is bubbling,
wanting to come
to the surface –
to remind you of
the Love That You Are.
With Gratitude –
do you not open
the door to Joy?

Release.
Let go.
Let the Joy
That Is You
bubble up
to the surface
to remind you of
the Lightness of Be-ing
Joy,
Peace,
Gratitude,
Love.

And You Are That.

Transformative Play

20170219-xpicture

2/19/17

A ball of clay.

Do you not remember
as a child,
rolling around
a ball of clay
between your hands,
pushing your fingers
into the malleable dough,
seeing what figures
you could turn
this “play dough” into –
only to pick it all up,
squish it together
to return it back
to a ball of clay –
so you could
begin again?

Were not your creations
only limited
by your creative mind –
if you tried something out
and it was not to
your liking –
could you not
return to the
ball of clay
that was ready
to be formed
into something new?

And can you connect
with this sense of play –
can you be
as pliable
as the ball of clay –
open and ready
to be formed
by your creative mind
that is connected
to your soul?

Would it not be easier
to try something new
if you could be
in the moment
of creating
and not as concerned
with the outcome
or what the expectation
may be?

Is not your body
here to experience
the creative forces
of your consciousness –
do you not need
pushing and prodding
at times to transform
in a different way?

And if the ball of clay
gets hard to form –
if it is not as flexible
as it used to be –
does it not begin
to come back to life
when you work the clay
and begin to play
with it once again?

Peel off the lid.
Take out the dough.
And with the play
of a child –
begin to push,
prod,
and shape –
creating something new
with the Joy
in your heart.

Play and create
with Love.
