A Place of Peace

Be familiar with Peace.

Peace need not be
elusive,
it need not be hard
to find,
it may be at the end
of a rainbow,
but you can feel it
at anytime,
it need not mean
you are apathetic,
when you are at Peace,
can you not focus
sharper still –
does not being familiar
with Peace,
bring you to a balanced
state,
letting the best of You
come shining through?

There are many external things
that can throw you,
off your center,
you may feel helpless,
wishing you had more
control,
but is not Peace
where you begin,
to become familiar
with You,
once again –
are you not You
when you let Peace
come seeping in?

Finding Peace
need not mean
you are tuning out.
Be-ing Peace means
that you are tuning in.
Let Love fine-tune
your resonance,
so you may feel
the Peace within,
with Gratitude,
can you now send
Peace and Love out?

Be familiar with Peace,
strengthen your core
that shines with Love,
anything or situation
you wish to face
will be easier,
when you are in
this loving place –
where your Strength
and Courage
can help you soar,
go within to find
out more –
as you reacquaint
with your powerful
Place of Peace.

Leading With Love

What would you do
in this Play of Life,
if fear and doubt
left the stage,
if you gave them
lesser roles
and not the leading
part to play,
as they demand
some attention,
can you acknowledge
and respect their
role to play,
then can you lead
with Peace and Love,
allowing Strength
and Gratitude
to show the way?

What role,
what voice
is the director,
what belief,
what script
do you wish to play –
all roles have many
options,
choices to make
along the way,
beneath the many beliefs
that you have gathered,
can you find the One
that builds you up,
what believes in You
when you are doubtful,
is it not always
Love?

Let Love lead the way,
can you adjust to how
Love feels,
the ego may like chaos,
building drama
to distract your view,
there are roles for
all of the players
that vie for your
attention here,
but with Love as
your Director,
can you lead with Love
everywhere?

Love inspires.
Love includes.
Love has a place
for all of You –
Love loves you
when you are worried,
or do not know what
to do,
give Love the leading role
and experience how the
play unfolds.
With Love,
Be Peace,
Be fearless,
Be You,
Be Bold.

Focus With Love

When there is chaos
all around you,
when you feel scattered
with parts of you
everywhere,
when you feel pulled
from your center,
be it from day to day
happenings
or daily news you hear,
there will be experiences
that demand your
attention,
might you pick and choose
what and how
you focus on,
yes, put energy into
what moves you –
but remember to
focus with Love.

You might react
from fearful places,
you might feel
pushed and pulled
on what to think,
when thinking does not
serve you,
drop into your heart
to make sense of
what something means,
there are many places
for you to shine
your loving Light
on what feels dark,
when you come from Light
from your loving Center,
are you not able to
focus now with Love?

With discernment
might you focus,
coming from Strength
you do know so well,
yes, Courage is often
needed,
when experiences
can be hard to bear,
might you gather your
innate resources,
to help you see with
clarity and with Light,
from this inner Peace,
this centering place,
can you not bring Love
to the experience of Life?

Keep your eyes
on the prize,
do not let life
knock you off
what you know
is True.
Keep your Light
turned on
and focus (always)
with Love.

Openings

Open a window,
if even a crack,
let Love circulate,
let it go this way
or that,
if you need more Love
to move around you,
to feel its flow,
throw open the window,
open up all the
doors.

Love Is everywhere you are,
though you can
close off yourself,
sometimes fear,
worry and doubt
can feel like a wall,
but you are porous
and cannot be contained,
by four walls
or a box –
open a window,
look out the door,
and when you are ready,
come out,
come out.

Once Love cracks you
open,
there is no turning back,
Love is the air
that you breathe,
Love is the wind
at your back,
Love may push you,
Love may pull you,
in ways you knew
not before,
but before and after,
always and forever,
You Are Love
forever more.

Throw open the window,
let Love in,
let it rain on you
like a summer storm,
Love Is Courage,
Love Is Strength,
You Are That
as Love is the
norm.
Be the breeze
that rustles leaves,
inviting others
to hear Love’s song,
open the window,
walk through the door,
let Love carry you
along the path you are on.

A Morning Song

20180526 XPicture

5/26/18

When morning comes
on a brand new day,
you have all you need
to start the day,
as birds begin to sing
their morning songs,
you can either listen
or sing along,
let their morning song
resonate with you,
Love is everywhere
like the morning dew,
there is no morning
that will start without you,
let break of dawn
sing its morning song
to you.

You may not hear
Love’s morning song,
but in your heart,
is where the notes
belong,
you can breathe in
the song you carry there,
breathing out,
affirming you are here,
you have the Rhythm of Love
in your heart,
no matter when your
morning starts.

And will not Love
give you what you need,
as you ask,
what might you wish
to bring,
to add to the morning song,
as you hum or sing
your song,
let others hear you,
might they sing along,
does not Love rise like
the sun at dawn?

When morning comes
on this brand new day,
you have all you need
to start the day.
You Are Peace
that fills you up,
You Are Strength
when you need a lift up,
let Joy remind you
to dance,
with Courage might you
take a chance,
let Gratitude spend the day
with you,
with Humility, let Love
show you what to do,
start with your
Morning Song of Love –
let it last the whole day
through –
singing, “You Are Love
and Love Is You.”
Love Is Everywhere
and so are You.

Strength and Courage

5/24/28

Be Strength when someone
needs it,
though are you not showing
them so they
may see,
they have all the Strength
they need within them,
are they not Strength
when they can Be –
reminded of what
flows within,
does Love not come
with all you “need” –
Strength and Courage,
Grace and Gratitude,
will these not lift you
and set you free?

You need not walk
in another’s shoes
to sense or feel
when a Light grows
dim,
you need not fix
or erase what they
are walking through
on this path of theirs –
might you turn
up your Light,
which will in turn
help Light their way,
will the Light of Love
not remind them,
that Strength and Courage
is innately with them
each and every day?

Hold the space
for Love,
let another see
your Light,
you can spark
the Light of Love
that All possess,
even in times
of dimming Light –
see the Strength
that may be hiding
beneath a story
that is hard to bear –
There Is Courage,
There Is Gratitude,
and in Grace
is Love not always
there?

Be a model,
light the way –
let another see
what They Are, too.
Strength and Courage,
Grace and Gratitude –
You Are Love
and Love Is You.

The Grace of Love

Do you not find Strength
when you least expect it,
does Strength not give
you the power to move –
to keep going,
to keep flowing,
when you feel
that you may
get stuck,
yes, life can throw you
obstacles,
you may feel like
you are running
through muck,
but does not Strength
through Grace,
help you rise up,
are you not lifted
by the Grace of Love?

When you feel your
energy waning,
when the burdens
seem too big
to bear,
with Grace
and with Humility,
can you ask,
“I need some help,
here!”
With surrender
you are not giving up,
are you not opening
up more space –
to let Love
help you to find your
Courage,
to face any challenges
with Grace.

When your human self
is bombarded,
is there not comfort
in the Arms of Love,
can you remember,
can you ask –
“remind me what
I am made of?”
Feel the familiar Peace
surround you,
helping you find balance
in your human life,
with Love may you find
Strength and Courage
as you turn up
your Shining Light.

With Grace and Love
You Are Strength,
You Are Courage,
when you need it most,
when you forget.
Let Love remind you
Who You Are –
You Are Light
and You Are Love.

A Mighty Tree

20180513 XPicture

5/13/18

A tree standing
in the forest
is still a majestic,
beautiful tree,
but does it not thrive,
is it not protected
by the trees
and plants
it is near,
does not a forest,
does not nature
work together
as a community,
a canopy of leaves
over the dirt,
the ground beneath?

Might the tree bring
shade to others
that cannot weather
too much sun,
might its leaves
hold precious water
so that it and others
can drink some,
there are a multitude
of interactions,
between trees standing
side by side,
is not a collection of trees,
a forest,
teeming with purpose
and with life?

You Are as majestic
as the tree,
standing straight and tall,
sometimes you wish
to be solitary,
sometimes you wish
the support of all,
know that just like
a forest,
you have an integral
role to play,
being You,
part of All,
wholly Light
in every way.

Be you the shade,
or the shaded,
stretch your branches
far and wide –
ask for help
when you need it,
take turns giving
and receiving Light,
your roots are connected,
always together
with the Source of
All That Is –
stand tall,
beam of Light,
with the Strength
and Peace
of Love.

Everywhere, Love

20180508 XPicture

You need not believe
what your eyes
think they see,
the Truth is in
your heart,
where you know Love
is Everywhere,
you may have limited
perceptions,
experiencing life
with a limiting
view,
but can you let
your soul expand
and sense the
Infinite You?

There are stages,
there are cycles,
in the human realm
that can delight,
there are experiences
that are tough,
sometimes unbearable,
full of strife,
but when you Know
the Truth of Love,
can you not find Love
through it all –
and even when life
appears to end,
There Is Love.

Yes, you may grieve
what you think
is ending,
when you say good-bye
in this physical realm,
but your souls are
already rejoicing,
always together
in this Love.
Have Faith,
have Strength,
have Courage
and know that
All Is Well –
because,
the circle is
unbroken,
You Are always
connected with Love.

Believe Love,
so you may
see Love,
everyday in your
life here.
Know Love.
Believe Love.
Love Is Forever,
and Everywhere.

Being Fearless

Be Fearless.

Standing in the Truth
of Who You Are,
can you Be a
warrior for only
Love,
can you shine with
other bright Lights,
creating a Force
that can light a night,
can you choose Love
over any fight –
Be Fearless.

You may wish to hide,
lest you be judged,
by others
yes, and possibly by
you,
comparisons are what
humans do,
but as there is
no opposite to Love,
Love Is Strength
and Love Is Grace –
when you fill up
any space
with Love,
how can you not
Be Fearless?

Remember the Truth
of Who You Are,
and the Love that
dwells within You,
is always in another, too –
can you see their
Love,
their Truth,
you may need
to look past
what is in
front of you,
let Love fill you All
with what is True –
that You Are Love
and Love Is You,
see it in everything
you do –
Be Fearless.
