A Mighty Tree

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

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.

A Song of Love

5/03/18

Where is Love,
is it not
everywhere?
When you cannot sing,
are there not
others there?
Lifting you up,
surrounding you
with care –
can you not hear
the constant
Song of Love?

Will not the beat
of angel wings,
beat the rhythm,
so your heart
may sing,
a chorus of Love
will lift you up
when you need
Strength,
are you not held
in the Arms of Love?

Where is Love,
is it not
Everywhere?
When you look,
do you not find
it Here –
let Love comfort,
let Love fill you up,
listen and feel
the angels’
Song of Love.

A Voice of Love

Sing your song,
sing it strong
and True,
let love resonate
with the Authentic
You,
some may join in
to sing the chorus, too,
some cannot hear
the notes
that most speak
to you,
but does not
a Song of Love,
need to be sung
in your
Voice of Love?

What is it that
makes your voice
strong,
what Expressions of
Love
help you to sing
your song,
you may lift pen
and write all
day long,
it may be in painting
where you find
you belong,
you may console,
or encourage
others to
speak their own Truth
and as the Authentic
You,
does that not give others
space to shine their Light?

Sing your song,
sing it strong
and True.
What lights you up
will give permission to
others to see the
Light in You –
might they behold
what they are made of –
do All not shine
with the Light of Love?

Share Love,
let Love
be seen
as You
express Love –
sing your
Song of Love.

Shifting With Love

Do not opportunities
show up sometimes
in disguise?
Is it not your perception
that does the framing,
often putting situations
in a box,
when you need to expand
upon your thinking,
do you not often need
a push,
or stretch –
is it not comfort
that you fall back on,
might you be resisting
the next step?

There may be discomfort
in the growing,
as you try things on
for size,
yes, there is comfort
in the knowing
how any situation
may come to be –
but as you have traveled
upon your journey,
could you have pictured
where you are now,
have not some of the
greatest gifts
been those you would not
have known to choose?

What shows up to
help you shift
a way of thinking
or a course to take,
you may pull back,
you may retract
as you gather your
innate Strength –
but any challenge
or new perspective
may pave the way
for something new –
for do not new roads,
though they may be
bumpy,
do they not lead you
always back to You?

Be grateful for opportunities
to shift,
to look at yourself anew –
with Love,
embrace the growing,
the ever-expanding
wonder of You!

An Emergence of Love

Emerge.

Is not what lies dormant
in the winter,
now beginning
to emerge,
is not the wave
of migration,
beginning to move
to find a way,
following the sun,
the warmth,
the Light
that stretches from
an extended sleep –
to waking up,
to emerging,
to Be All
that it can Be?

What lies dormant
in you,
what do you wish
to dust off to find?
What gifts have you
kept to yourself,
that you might
share at anytime,
you have much that you
can offer,
a heart of Love
is waiting to expand,
might you see yourself
in a new way,
in this new season
might you emerge?

Take a chance,
make a leap,
continue growing
steady and true,
check in with your
heart
to see the path
that is right for you –
as you open to
the Truth
of Who You Are,
shining in the Light –
keep going,
keep growing,
embrace the You
that is beginning
to emerge.

And when you think
you are where
you need to be,
you have reached a goal –
is there not always
more growing,
is there not more
knowing,
more ways to play –
when you set your sights
on exploring
infinite ways
to express Love –
is not every moment,
every day,
an opportunity
for you to
emerge?

See the Light.
Be the Light.
Let the Love
in you emerge.
Standing in the
Light of Love,
Be seen.
Be Love.

The Power of Compassion

20180410 XPicture

Compassion.

And do you not
feel the waves
of Love
surrounding what
you hold in
the space of
compassion?

Is not compassion
powerful –
it need not compare
or judge,
you need not look
at what you think
is “right” or “wrong”,
is not compassion
simply opening up
your heart
to Be with Love –
might you start
by feeling compassion,
might you begin
with compassion
for you?

Does not compassion
help you cut cords,
to release what
you may fear,
since Love reigns
in compassion,
does it not call
on your inherent
Strength –
do you not sense
the freedom,
the power,
that compassion
manifests –
can you not Love
and simply Be Love,
when You Are
compassionate?

Is there not allowance
in compassion,
might you find
acceptance, too –
you need not agree
on tenets that
do not feel right
to you,
but does not forgiveness
dance on the edges
where compassion
paves the way –
is it not Love
that sets you free,
can you send Love
and compassion
to yourself
and others everyday?

Let compassion be
your guide,
let it open
more doors
to Love.
With Strength and
Courage,
Be compassion –
see and embrace
the Love that you are
made of.

Embracing Love

20180409 XPicture

Step into the fold,
come out of
the cold,
can you let the
warmth of Love
envelop you
in its loving arms?

Are you not at Home
in this loving place,
do you not belong
in this sacred space,
can you let Love
help you remember
Who You Are
and All Is Well?

Step into Love,
it is Who You Are,
when you are fearful
remember Love Is Here,
your loved ones,
Guides,
Angels
are always near,
may you find comfort
knowing Love Is you,
does not your heart
tell you this is True?

Step into Peace,
always at your side,
with Strength and Courage,
you need not hide,
Love is your Truth,
your Guiding Light –
walk in the Light
that lights up the way,
when you follow
the Light of Love,
are you not Home
every step of the way?

Step into Love,
step into the fold.
Be surrounded
by the Embrace of Love.
You never walk
this Journey alone.
You are always
and forever
Home.

Growing Gratitude

20180403 XPicture

4/03/18

Is it not when
there is resistance,
that you often
experience the
greatest growth?

Can you look
with new eyes
at what gets
under your skin,
what irritates,
what motivates you
to move,
to shift,
to find another way?

Do you not get
into creative flow
when the river
that you have
come to know,
comes to a dam,
a blockage
that at first
impedes your progress,
until you find
another (better?) way –
like the river,
there is no stopping you,
so why not go
with the flow,
that flows within you
and work with
or around,
giving Gratitude
to what you resist?

Might you be willing
to try new things,
might you find support
from others who sing
a similar song to yours,
might you agree
on a chorus of Love
to sing along,
when voices rise together,
singing with the
Strength and power
of One,
can you not find
common ground,
when you resist
or work around,
does it not sometimes take
a bump in the road,
to find a new path,
a different way?

Give Gratitude
for what stretches you,
makes you change,
helps you to grow.
As you seek comfort
from discomfort,
do you not gain wisdom
that you did not know?
Keep growing,
keep evolving,
you shine every
step of the way –
for what never changes
is that You Are Love.
You are a magnificent jewel
becoming brighter,
ever lighter –
with Love as your polish,
shine your Light of Love
today.
