Keeping the Light

Keep the Light burning.

Does not watching fire
draw you in,
be it a single candle
or fireplace that glows,
does not the smallest
flicker of Light
light up the dark,
does not seeing Light
bring you to Hope?
Keep the Light burning.

And even when
shadows fall,
are shadows not seen
because a Light shines,
can you Be a Light
that shines upon All –
to brighten a room,
or to be like
a sunbeam
that Lights the way,
everyone has a Light,
some are bright
some may be dim,
can you keep
the Light burning?

Even on the darkest day,
the Light from the moon
or stars may light your way –
candles lit in a row,
or glowing lights on a tree,
a single candle that is lit
for a loved one you
no longer can see –
do you not sense the warmth,
the comfort,
from these Lights of Love,
are you not reassured
by the Hope of Love?
Keep the Light burning.

The Light of Love
is eternal,
never-ending,
there cannot be darkness
with a Light so bright,
when you feel the spark
of Love in your heart,
can you fan its flame,
can you radiate Love,
as You Are Love –
eternal,
everlasting,
Be the Light burning.

Be Hope.
Be Peace.
Be Love.
Be Light.
Keep shining your
Light of Love.

I Am Love

When surroundings
around you change,
do you not look
for familiar things,
yes, there is comfort
in what you know,
what you have experienced,
what you have done
before,
but as each day is
new,
as is each moment
that has come before,
what connects you
to All That Is now –
is it not You
who always Is
I Am?

Whether child that is
ready to play
or grow-up who
plans the day,
is not the “you”
who cherishes the memories,
not also You
who has seen it all
and always Is Love?

Yes, in this life
you have played many
roles,
you can fill in –
“I did this”
or “I used to be that,”
but is it not You
who sees the progression
as it plays out, everyday –
some lessons are amazing,
some experiences help you
to navigate
a different scenario,
a different way –
these memories could fill up
many pages in a book,
but is it not all
to help you remember
that at your center –
You Are Love?

You Are the Peace
that you may wish for,
it is at your very core,
the Joy you felt as
a child,
is ready to sing and dance
and roar,
Strength and Courage
are close allies
for have you not
called upon each one,
when you think
that you are separate,
does not Love show you –
You Belong?

No matter your surroundings,
traditions the same
or routines that change,
is not the constant,
is not the Truth,
that You Are
always, always, Love?

Who Are You –
you may ask everyday.
With Peace and Joy
may you answer –
I Am Love
today.

Here With Love

Be here.

In the quiet,
in the noise,
Be the Love.
Be the Light.
Be grateful
for what comes today,
be it a single smile,
or the gift of
a magical day,
what brings Magic
to any moment
in so many ways –
is it not
when You Are Here
with Love?

Be here.
Be Love.
Be with You
as daylight dawns,
be a listening ear
to one who needs
to be heard,
be one who sees
the Love,
the magic
in the eyes of everyone,
can you see You
looking back at you,
when You Are Here
with Love?

Be here.
Is there not Love
anywhere you go,
when you look
with the Eyes of Love,
are you not shown
that Love Is Love
in all shapes
and forms –
it is the glow of
the stars,
it is the Light
of day,
it is what radiates
from you
in a magical way,
when You Are Here
with Love.

Be here.
Be You.
You Are Here
with Love.
In the quiet.
In the noise.
Be Light.
Be Love.

Witness Love

20171213 XPicture

12/13/17

Observe.
Notice.
Look around.

Do you not have
many perspectives
that you can take
as you witness life,
as you relate to
what particular role
you focus on
at any time?

As you are a
sister,
brother,
parent,
child,
partner,
spouse,
friend –
do you still
not see all
of these roles
from the perspective
of You?

And as birthdays
come and go
no matter how
you perceive age,
are you still not You
at your core,
complete and Whole,
when you remember
that Peace and Love
are always within
the heart of You?

And as you experience
these many roles,
as you multi-task
throughout your life,
are you not also
multi-dimensional
in your Be-ing –
as you are human,
but eternally a soul,
can you shift your perspective
to help you perceive,
observe,
notice,
look around
from the perspective of You –
who is the Essence of Love,
when you wish to
know Gratitude
and experience Peace?

When what is external
is not in your control,
when you ask yourself,
“what can I do?”,
can you move into
your heart,
are You not always There –
does not the question become,
“what can I Be?” –
and is not the answer,
always Love?

Observe.
Notice.
Look around.
Can you witness from
the perspective of Love?
May Love bring into focus
what you already Know –
that You Are Love.

In the Quiet

There.
In the stillness.
Before you wake
at break of day,
before you know
if work or weekend
or what events
you have planned
that day.
In the quiet,
in the moments,
before your mind
becomes fully engaged –
is this not
a moment of magic,
when you are You
and not you at all?

Do you not sense
that you have been conversing,
visiting others,
visiting You –
your dreams may take you
on a journey,
you are not always clear
if they are true,
but when a whisper,
when a feeling,
when a knowing,
lets you know –
in the quiet,
in the stillness –
does not a loved one
say hello?

When you sit
in the stillness,
when you quiet
your active mind,
can you strip
away the layers
that may cover up
Who You Are –
as you sit with
your loving heart,
are you not joined
by those you love –
this Love Is You,
this Love Is All –
always connected
in this Space of Love.

In the quiet,
in the spaces
between night and day
and day and night –
does Love not exist
in everything
and in between
all that you see?

Love is in between
the snowflakes,
that fall so peacefully
on a winter’s day,
Love is in a favorite song –
in the first notes
and when the music
fades aways.
Are you not left
with the feeling
that warms your heart
and comforts you –
Love Is everything You Are,
Love Is everything you do.

In the quiet,
in the stillness,
You Are Love
as Love Is You.

A Hug of Love

Wrapped in a hug
of Love.

You hug a child
and when they
are so young,
do they not melt
in the arms of Love,
you hug your pets,
hold them close
to you,
as this Loving Force
surrounds you, too –
there is a contentment,
peace,
a smile forms –
when you are wrapped
in a hug of Love.

You hug your family,
your friends so dear,
some you can bear hug,
others a quick hug
will do,
but do all not respond
when arms reach
out wide,
when with open hearts,
feeling Love inside –
you are wrapped
in a hug of Love.

And as all is energy,
you need not be near
to send an intention
of a hug
to someone dear –
who could use a hug
that you may not
usually include
on your list to Love,
but do not All
long for Love,
to remind them of
Who They Are –
can you send a loving
thought,
wrapping them in
a hug of Love?

When you are feeling
separation,
feeling that you
are alone,
a physical hug
can be a comforting
reminder of Love –
but we wish
to assure you,
Love Is Everywhere
You Are –
can you focus on
your heart
and feel it wrapped lovingly in
a hug of Love?

Love always surrounds you.
It is a hug
that is always there.
Cradling You.
Supporting You.
You Are So Loved.
You Are Always
wrapped in
a hug of Love.

Relax

IMG_5866

10/29/17

“You can relax now.”

A beautiful line
in a heart-centered song –
and does not the word
* relax *
allow you to let go,
to take a breath,
to know that you
need not “do”
anything but
breathe,
allow,
Be.

Is it not your thoughts
that bring to mind
the notion that if
you do not “work”
so very hard,
that you may not see
or experience
what you expect
should happen –
is there not
a lot of effort
that adds to the clutter
of your mind –
can you let go,
allow,
trust –
yes, you can relax now.

And a relaxed,
receptive state,
is not a void,
is not emptiness –
does it not allow
for room,
for space,
for your natural
State of Love
to flow in?

There will always
be rocks,
or boulders that fall
into a sparkling creek,
but does not the water
know where to flow –
if not through,
it finds ways around –
what once were obstacles,
are they not part
of the character of
the flowing creek ,
do not rock and water
work together
to form an oasis of Peace?

You can relax now.

There is Peace
in the allowing.
There is Trust
in Love.
You need not work
to find this state.

Trust.
Allow.
Relax.
Breathe.

Relax into the
Love That You Are.
You can.
You Are –
Love.
