A Quiet Space

IMG_4816

3/22/17

In the absence
of the wind –
there is still,
there is calm.

Do you not at times
listen for the wind
to break the silence –
thinking that this
calming space
needs to be filled
once again?

Is it not in
the quiet,
calming spaces
that you may
hear the whisper
of a message,
an idea may form,
a creative thought
may bubble up
to the surface
of your consciousness.

Is it not
in the quiet,
calming spaces
that all that you
have taken in,
mixes up with what
you already know –
and once you
free up space,
is there not room
for an inspired thought
to filter in to
your awareness?

Is there not some
resistance at first –
to the quiet,
calming space –
do you not
feel a need
to fill it up
with more noise,
more distractions –
do you often want
only “more?”

But is not
the quiet,
calming space,
already filled
with the
Love That You Are –
when you strip away
all of the distractions,
is it not Love
that remains?

Is it not
in the quiet,
calming place –
that you integrate
all that you experience
with the One experience
you need not learn –
the Expression of You As Love?

In the absence
of the noise –
there is still,
there is calm –
do you recognize yourself
in that place –
the space that
is filled
with Love?

When the mind
is calm,
when the thoughts
are still,
you will hear a message
that is there for You:
As You Are Love,
you are so Loved –
so very, very Loved.

Peace and Calm

In the moments
when you feel peace,
sitting with a
sense of calm –
does not ego
like to look
over your shoulder,
as it waits
for something
to happen –
does not ego
like it best when
emotions are stirred up?

And as emotions
can be a signal
to your body
to react –
or move into action,
might emotion
also be a sign
to move back
into the peace,
to find the calm
within the storm –
does not this
dance with emotion
allow for accepting
what you feel?

Is not ego asking for
you to acknowledge
how it feels –
and does not ego
wish to feel
the Love of You?

And the more
you can wrap
loving arms
around all of you –
accepting your emotions,
allowing what you feel –
might ego
then not need
to draw attention
to itself,
so that you
will send Love
to ego, too?

Ego may not like
when you sit
within the calm –
when you move
in a state of Peace –
but might You also
need to adjust
to what it feels like
to be calm –
to know that
All Is Well –
as you accept
all states of be-ing
that you are in?

The more you
move about
in the peaceful
state of calm –
might it be okay if
ego tags along?

Embrace and Love
all States of You.
There is learning
in this constant
Dance of Life.

Allow.
Accept.
Love.
Peace.

All Is Well.

A Master Plan

IMG_4789

3/07/17

You wish for an
outline,
a guide,
a map
that you can
look at,
to follow,
to know where
you are going,
to know which
turns to take.

But what if you knew
that there is
a blueprint to you –
with guidelines
to follow,
with opportunities
that arise –
to provide you
with experiences
as you build on
your foundation,
always with
the option
to make any
adjustments –
are not all of
these experiences
part of the plan?

And as you express
this Blueprint of You,
can you not consult
and ask for help
along the way –
are there not
other contractors
with information
you may need –
does not the
Blueprint of You
allow for interpretation
of the plan
you have made?

And no matter what
changes you make
to the exterior view
of the Blueprint of You –
is not your structure
sturdy and grounded
in the Foundation of Love?

Do you not work
with the Blueprint of You –
building upon this
Foundation of Love –
is there not a key,
a building code to follow
as each layer of You
begins with Love?

And is not Gratitude
part of the cement
that holds the rest
of the structure together –
can you not create
a beautiful design
when Love and Gratitude
are the tools
that you use?

There is a guide,
a map,
you can follow
to know where
you are going,
which turns to make –
you have access
to the Blueprint of You,
that is built upon
the Foundation of Love.

With Joy may you
create and experience
the Love That You Are –
let the Light of Love
help show you the way.

Ask for help
when you need support.
With the Tools of Love
may you be at Peace,
as you see the beauty
of You unfolding –
rising up from
the Blueprint of You.

There is a Master Plan
creating the Masterpiece
of You.

Heart Song

Your inner voice
may be a quiet voice –
you may need to quiet
the sounds around you
to hear it well.

How can you detect
the inner voice
of your Higher Self
amid the myriad voices
cycling through your mind –
is there not sometimes
a deafening sound
of messages
that are replayed
over and over
from your belief systems?

And as all is energy –
you may test
the vibration
of what you hear
within your heart –
checking in with
your emotions
that give you signals;
what result
does this message
have on your body –
are you tense,
constricted,
feeling fear
or doubt?

Would not a message
that constricts
be from an outdated
belief system
that may be
holding you back?

But what of the message,
the signals,
the signs –
that beckon you forward,
that reach out a hand,
that fill you with wonder
and when you hear
this inner voice
whispering from your soul –
do you not feel peace,
is it not wrapped in Love,
is there not a knowing
that this message
originates from
the heart?

Are not these
Heart Sounds,
these Songs of the Heart,
music to your ears –
does this vibration,
this message,
not resonate
through your
entire be-ing
and as there
is no resistance –
are you not now
part of this Flow?

Does not your inner voice,
the once quiet voice
of your Higher Self –
grow in strength
when you are in tune
with the resonant vibrations
of the Songs of the Heart?

The more you listen
to the Songs of Your Soul –
you no longer strain
to hear the notes of Love,
that are always singing
to You.

May you sing along
with the Songs of Your Heart,
in rhythm,
in tune,
at Peace,
with Love.

Sing Your Heart Song,
Sing.

Finding Peace

The wind blows.

The force of wind
can be unsettling
at times.

Is it the noise,
the din,
of this roaring force
that draws your
attention –
as you listen
to the wind
as it picks up speed –
only to then slow down?

Is it the
unpredictable nature
of wind –
the erratic behavior
of bursts of energy –
as gusts of wind
rise up,
seemingly out of nowhere,
to rattle window screens,
shaking everything up
before diminishing
once again?

And then there are
sustaining winds,
emitting a low roar
that your ears begin
to filter out –
but that carry with it
biting air
that has you
pulling in your coat
for warmth as you
try to block out
the wind.

But does not wind
serve its purpose well –
does it not push forward
steams of air
that create
and move the atmosphere,
to bring needed rain,
or parts the clouds,
so the sun may warm
and melt the winter snow?

And does not wind’s force
shake out what is ready
to be discarded –
is it not a natural pruner,
as sticks and limbs
break off to allow
new growth to occur?

And when wind
has calmed –
is that not when
you remember
the peace and quiet
that follows
the noise,
the din,
the force of the wind?

Do you not need
to experience
the bluster
of any force,
to appreciate
its absence –
is this not the
calm before
or after the storm?

Brace yourself
when winds appear.
Gather together
to fend off the storm.
Be grateful
for the wind
that helps you
appreciate
the stillness,
the peace,
the calm.

And how to find peace
when the winds are blowing?

Go inside.
Be the eye
of the storm.
As you go to
your center –
may you find
the Love,
the Peace,
that is always within.

You Are the shelter
you wish to seek.

You Are Peace.
You Are Love.
There is calm.

A Space For Love

It is human nature
to question,
to be skeptical,
to be wary,
of new information
that comes your way.
Do you not take
rules,
laws,
tenets,
of the past
in order to make
sense of the new?

But when you look back
at the past,
were not these
rules,
laws,
tenets,
formed in a time,
a place,
based on knowledge
that made sense
at that time?

And when these very
rules,
laws,
tenets,
begin to get questioned,
is it not uncomfortable
for you to question
the basic rules
you used to follow
in order to make sense of
what is around you?

And may we point out
that “following” an order
of tenets that
are “around” you –
does that not foster
actions and reactions
that are made
while on automatic pilot –
as your questioning
mind has gone to sleep?

And yes,
as you peel back
layer upon layer
of beliefs that
no longer serve you –
as you look at
the world around you –
are you not wishing
the world reflected
more of the Love
that you are feeling
in your heart?

As uncomfortable
as it is,
to create a space
for change to happen,
making you look objectively,
questioning more
of what is around you –
can you go within
to open your heart,
to shine your light,
wishing to experience
Divine Love
as it may be expressed
in all you see –
do you see now
that the change
you wish to see
begins with you?

And as the
rules,
laws,
tenets,
are being called into question –
is it not a perfect time
to be guided by
the Truth
of Who You Are?

Lead with Love.
Question everything.

And when you
get to the space
where Love Is
the answer to
every question
you ask –
there is Peace
in that space.

Create and Be
a Space for Love –
and shine your Light.
Shine.

Comfort Signs

A storm brews.

Are there not
atmospheric pressures
building –
putting conditions
into place,
for warm air
to intersect with cold
causing temperatures
to plummet –
the wind increases
adding pressure
to the already
unstable atmosphere –
bringing moisture
to the air.

And when the build-up
reaches a tipping point
and clouds are ready
to burst –
does not the steady rain
bring water that is
needed on the earth –
the rhythmic sound
even brings comfort
when you listen
to the rain,
but did there not
have to be conditions
present for the
rain to fall?

And once the storm is over
is there not a
clearing calm?
As you emerge from
your place of shelter
and smell the cleansing air,
do you not marvel
when you see blue sky
as the covering
of clouds recede
allowing in a ray
of sunlight?

And is this not an opportunity –
with the sun reflecting on
the remnants of the moisture,
the storm that now is gone –
is this not when
you may see
a rainbow form above –
arching over the
once-explosive atmosphere –
saying,
now,
All Is Calm,
All Is Well.

Can you be the Beam of Light
that shines through the clouds?
Can you be the calm
before,
during,
and after a storm?
Can you be a sign of comfort
that can be seen
both far and wide?

Can you Be a Messenger of Love?
All Is Calm.
All Is Well.
All Is Love.

You Are.
All Are
Love.
