Foundation of Love

20171001 XPicture

10/01/17

There are symbols,
there are guidelines,
there are rules
that help keep peace,
to bring an order
to the world
in which you live.

When there are questions,
when there is friction,
when fingers point
from here to there –
is this not a perfect
time to question,
what stirs you up,
what is your reaction,
what may come up
for you to heal –
and might the healing
of One
help to heal
a collective Whole?

It may not feel good,
it may cause strife,
when you question
what you thought
was true –
when beliefs
crash into beliefs,
do not walls
come tumbling down –
do you not look
for a foundation,
something sturdy
to stand upon,
you can rearrange
the structure
that you think
brings structure
to your world –
but are you
not searching
for what is solid
enough to support
all that you are –
and is not
What You Are,
what you seek,
is it not Love?

When you strip away
the symbols,
the beliefs,
who is right
or wrong –
what do you
have in common,
with those you
cannot agree upon,
you can keep
building walls
that keep you
separate,
drawing a dividing
line –
or can you see
with Eyes of Love,
that at your core
you all want
the same?

As One of the Whole,
can you listen,
can you send
another Love –
turn up your Light,
be a beacon,
to help ease
pain and suffering –
yes, work for change,
but can Love
be the foundation
as you rebuild –
do you not sometimes need
to tear down
what can no longer
stand alone?

Is there not Strength
in unifying,
is there not growth
in a common cause –
can you search
deep inside
and find a
common cause for Love?
Can you look beyond
the structures of beliefs
that you are standing on –
can you find
where Love begins,
can you begin
with a Foundation of Love?

Is there not Peace,
is there not Strength,
when you stand
with Love?

Create.
Build.
With Love
may you
stand tall
and stand together
on the Foundation of Love.

A Bridge to Love

When you wish
to feel grounded,
can you not
visualize a tree –
firmly rooted
in the earth,
but reaching for
the stars up high?

Are you not like
this wooden bridge
that connects
mother earth
to the sky above –
do you not center,
do you not know Strength,
are you not a conduit
for Love?

Can you embrace
both ground
and sky,
are you not a part
of here
and there –
and when you wish
to feel at Peace,
fully grounded,
is it not always
through Love?

Your limbs may sway
when it is windy,
some branches break,
some branches grow –
but your roots
are firmly grounded,
with trunk so strong
do you not still grow?

There is power,
there is majesty
in a tree
so tall and strong –
can you stand tall,
feet so grounded,
with heart open
to it All?

Can you be a
Bridge of Love,
secure in both
worlds at once?
You are human,
You Are Spirit –
centered by
the Flow of Love.

Ground and sky.
Here and There.
Is it not Love
that connects it All?

As You Are Love,
stand tall –
and Be a majestic
Bridge of Love.

Cascade of Love

20170917 XPicture

9/17/17

A waterfall,
where water flows,
are you not witness
to its Strength,
are you not amazed
at the power,
the sound,
as the waterfall
is ever-flowing –
is this not like
the sound of Love?

Does it not feel
like magic –
the waterfall,
with no beginning
and with no end,
the water simply
appears to fill in,
you look at the rocks
over which water flows,
each rock making its
own waterfall,
the water is everywhere
in each crevice and crack –
is this not like
when you look at Love?

Is not Love as powerful
as the waterfall,
you see it as Whole
made up of separate parts –
are you not a unique aspect
of All That Is –
are you not a
drop of water
in this Cascade of Love?

Are you not an
expression
of always flowing –
where do you begin,
where do you end,
do you not cycle,
lettings Love’s journey
show you the Strength,
the Courage,
the Love you have
within?

You roar like
the majestic
sound of water.
You sparkle with
the beauty,
the eternal Love
that shines.
You Are an integral part
of the Whole
that cannot end,
that will not cease
and will never, ever
die.

Keep flowing.
Keep moving.
With the Love
that moves you
over obstacles
and with the flow.

Be still and listen
to the music
That Is You.
Be You and see
You Are Always,
Always Love.

A Common Cause

20170912 XPicture

Food,
water,
shelter.

When stripped down
to the basic needs,
is this not when
you feel the same
in this world of
duality,
where separation
and differences reign –
when a catastrophic event,
man-made or nature’s way,
makes you think
“that could be me”,
does that not create
a common cause,
when compassion
becomes the norm,
when help and aid
come in with
food,
water,
shelter?

And when you move beyond
the story,
of the human side
of you,
is this not when
you feel the same,
in this world
of duality,
when you realize
that you share
the Common Cause
of Love?

Is it not Love
that fuels compassion,
that gives you the drive
to want to help –
is it not the feeling
of being there
for someone else –
what lights the spark
in your heart,
what makes your soul
leap with Joy –
you may not be aware
of what you feel,
but is it not Love
that nudges you
to take the step,
the right thing to do –
in times of need,
does it not feel good
to share a Common Cause
of Love?

Food,
water,
shelter.
Yes, you have learned
these basic needs
are the building blocks
of being human,
but as You Are Spirit,
here and now,
do you not exist
because of Love –
is not Love
the fuel you need,
as basic as
the air you breathe –
and when that is gone,
do you not live on
with the Common Cause
of Love?

If at any time
you could see,
that you all share
a common cause –
it is not only to have
what you need
to live to see another day,
but to feel
the spark,
the flame,
the Light,
that ignites in You,
Who You Are
right now –
do you not wish
to be in the presence of –
the Common Cause
of Love?

Share.
Give.
Unite
in Love.

Be-cause.
Be You.
Be Love.

Be Together

Friends Playing on the Beach

Together.

Do you not band
together,
to lend a helping
hand,
are there not times
when you realize,
that there is help
when you need support –
when in times
of need,
is it not easier
to go through it
together?

Does it not take
greater strength
to ask for help,
to reach out –
in this life of
separation,
why do you feel
you need to
“go it alone”,
do all not grow
when one is lifted,
when you connect,
when you share –
is not the greatest Strength
experienced when you
work and play together?

Yes, it often takes
a common cause
or times when you
step outside
your “usual” lives,
can you step beyond
your comfort zones,
to let someone know
they are not alone –
can the common cause
be one of Love,
as you reach out your hand
or look with your heart –
can you see You,
in who stands
next to you?
Together.

Together you share
so much more
than what you think
are differences –
you may not agree
on everything,
but can you see
Love in humanity –
do not wait for
an invitation
or a catastrophic event,
can you Be Love now,
together?

When you get beyond
the “yours” and “mine”,
helping each other
to see the Light,
is there not comfort
when you share,
that the Love you seek
is everywhere –
does Love not grow,
is there not a bright
Light,
when you experience
the Love That You Are
in this life –
together?

Be a shining Light.
Let it connect
You to All.
As All Are Love,
how can you not
Be
Love
Together.

Resilient

Resilient.

Is not resilience
standing tall,
despite when you may
stumble or fall,
do you not find ways
to get back up,
to be flexible enough
to bend not break –
like the tree
when leaves or
branches fall,
does it not stay
grounded
standing tall?
Resilient.

Do you not weather
any storm
and find ways to
stay safe and warm,
even when turmoil
is high,
during times when
water or smoke
fill the sky –
with help,
with support,
do you not get through
anything Mother Nature
can throw at you?
Resilient.

Is it not in
the aftermath
that the good
comes out,
the helpers help –
after chaos’ fun
is through,
is it not the perfect time
for Gratitude,
to get back up
to let the healing begin,
to reconstruct,
to rejuvenate,
to rise from the ashes
once again.
Resilient.

Yes, you may prefer
for Peace to reign,
it can within the eye
of any storm –
but do you not
recognize your
Strength and Courage,
when life can batter
and throw you around –
do you not look within
You to see,
“I Am That and
All Is Well.”

And Who Are You?
You Are Love.
You Are Strength.
You Are Courage.
You Are Peace and
You Are Amazing.

Resilient.

An Intention of Love

20170906 XPicture

9/06/17

What do you wish
to create?

And yes, you are
continually creating,
manifesting
evolving,
even when you
are not aware
of this happening –
do you not
see past markers
in your life
and realize
ways that you
have changed?

Are you not
like a balloon,
that ever so slowly,
takes in air –
changing,
growing,
until there is
enough air
to lift it up,
so it may float
and move to
a different space?

And like the balloon,
from a different space,
do you not find ways
to draw in Strength,
to be filled up
with what inspires you,
to see what lifts you
and takes you to
another place,
as you create
and manifest
through experiences
that come your way?

Now visualize turning
up the heat
of a hot air balloon –
is this not like
using your intention,
to say “I Am ready,”
saying “Yes” to flying
even higher –
still using the air,
the currents
that support you,
but with intention,
do you not feel
the Power that lifts you,
so you may fly
in this beautiful space?

There is power,
there is ease,
there is a balance,
as you find
the perfect interaction
between intention
and surrender –
do these not work
together,
like a beautiful balloon
that appears to be
still,
but is ever-moving
in the sky?

Can you embrace
the stillness
as a constant
Be-ing of change –
as you rise,
as you fly
as a majestic
Be-ing of Love?

What do you
wish to create,
Be-ing Love?
