If Love . . .

Hug yourself.
Give yourself
a pat onĀ 
the back.

Yes, you may think
there is always
something more
that you can do –
that should be done,
do you not often
have the mindset –
“if this gets done”
or “if I do that” –
do these “if-thens”
not take you
out of the
moment of Now
and put you in
your thinking mind –
delaying what is
important
and pushing you
into a different time –
is it not time
to be thankful,
to be grateful
for You –
hug yourself.

Do you not feel
self-conscious
hearing these words –
is it not better
to give out hugs?
But as you are
becoming more
conscious,
more aware
of the Power of Love –
is it not overdue
to be conscious
of the Self –
if you see the
Love in You,
can you not find
Love Everywhere?
Is that not an
“if-then” statement
that can heal
the World?
Hug yourself.

And is not
a pat on the back,
more than a symbol
of a job well done –
is it not
an acknowledgment
that you are here –
is it not a symbol –
“I see You” –
is it not a
reassurance that
All Is Well?
Right Now.
This moment –
give yourself
a pat on the back
and hug yourself.

Can you not
help but smile
at the simplicity
of these words?
You may think
of them as silly –
will you not
do this alone?
But if others
saw the Truth
that each of you
wish to feel –
is it not
when you love yourself,
that you can
truly give Love
to others?
If you can trust
the perfection
of Love in You –
could you not see
that Love in others, too?
Hug yourself.

If You Are Love
is not everyone?

You Are.
They Are.
All Are
One.
Love.
Hug.
Smile.

Wave of Love

20170427 XPicture

4/27/17

“Riding a wave.”

You visualize
a surfer standing
upon a surfboard –
one with a wave,
riding the flow
of the ocean,
able to see
from above the water –
it does look effortless
at first glance,
but did not the surfer
need to paddle
out into the ocean,
waiting patiently
for the right conditions?

Might there have
been times,
when the surfer
had to swim against
the current,
or take in water –
when the ocean
felt so deep,
so vast?

But the surfer waits
and knows the water,
and senses when the
wave is ready –
does the surfer not paddle
to the perfect position
to blend with
and be lifted
by the wave?

And as exhilarating
as riding a wave may be –
as fast as the surfer travels
when riding the wave –
does not time stand still
when the surfer is
in the flow?

There may be times,
when you feel
you are paddling upstream –
when where you
wish to travel
is so deep,
so vast –
but have you not
felt the wave before,
do you not sense
when you are being lifted –
when you are One
with the Love
that flows through
and around You always?

Can you not put yourself
in a perfect position –
are not the conditions
always right,
as You Are a drop
in the deep, vast
Ocean of Love –
can you not help
but blend with
and be lifted
by the Waves of Love?

And when you ride
this Wave of Love,
do you not rise
and are able to see
from a different perspective,
from a vantage point,
that feels effortless
as you blend with
the flow,
blending with
the Waves of Love?

You may experience
the ebb and flow
of waves that rise
and fall at times –
but is this not
a rhythm that
you understand –
are you not honing
your skills,
each time you
ride the wave –
can you not have faith,
can you not trust
that you are right
where you need to be?

And are not the waves
an expression of
the ocean,
are you not part
of the Ocean of Love
at all times –
as You Are one drop
in the deep, vast ocean –
are you not always
surrounded by Love?

Swim with Love.
Rise with Love.
Ride the Wave of Love
That You Are.
Effortless.

So Very Loved

It is human nature
to want to explain,
to share,
to want someone
to hear your story,
what you have
been going through,
to give justifications,
to provide proof,
to defend
what you think
is “right.”

And is this not
a perfect time
to look at
what the underlying
emotions are –
are emotions
not an expression
of what wishes
to come up –
to be looked at,
to be aware of,
to be healed?

Do you not
place a value
on who is right,
or who is wrong,
on what is the best way
to move forward,
are there not
a multitude
of perspectives
with the many stories
you experience
in this
School of Life?

But what if you
change your perspective
and no longer look
in terms of
right or wrong,
or feel the need
to justify,
to defend
a position in your story –
what if you
are already so valued,
that you do not
need to prove
a single thing –
what if you
already are
so very, very loved?

It is human nature
to want to explain,
to be assured
that you are “right” –
but are you not
looking for
something greater,
something better
than justification –
are you not
wanting to be assured
that you are
so very, very loved?

These experiences
you go through,
through the stories
that are told,
can you step aside
to look at
what drives them –
are there emotions
that come up
to be heard,
to be felt,
to be healed?

Does Love not heal
when you hand
over your pain,
is not struggle
an opportunity
to take notice of
what is bubbling up
to be loved –
what if all of you
already knew
that you are
so very, very loved?

So tell your stories,
but you listen as well –
what is the message,
what does your story
tell You?
Might you fast forward
through it,
you know how it ends –
You Are
always,
so very
Loved.

Connect to Love

20170326 XPicture

Connected.

You are always connected
to Source,
to God,
the Universe,
the Divine –
it matters not
what you label
the Source of Love,
the Source of You –
even as your ego,
your human mind
tries to convince you
that you are separate
and on your own –
You Are always connected
to Love.

Do you not feel
these connections,
sense the Web
that you cannot see –
when you are in
a State of Awareness,
there is support
on the periphery –
you can almost see it,
you can almost grasp it –
is it not a feeling
that the next step
you take,
is being guided
in a loving way?

Connected.

And as You Are
part of this greater Web,
connecting You to
All That Is –
can you not sense
a familiarity when
you connect with
another person
that you are to meet,
when you enter
a place you feel
you’ve been to before,
when you listen to music
that stirs your soul
into remembering –
do these senses you have
not satisfy
a longing you have
to feel at Home,
to belong to something
greater than you?

Do you not seek
these connections
that connect you to
your Higher Self,
the Source of Love
of All That Is –
is this not a search for
Who You Are?

You Are always connected.
You cannot Be
anything but Love.
Is it not in the remembering
that you light up the Web –
to see how strong
these connections are –
can you surrender
into Knowing
that what you are
looking for
is already within
your heart?

With the Light and Love
that reside in your heart,
are you not connected
to the Love of
All That Is?

Follow the connections
to Source,
to God,
the Universe,
the Divine.

It is not at the end
and there is no beginning –
You Are always
connected to Love.

Smile of Love

IMG_4810

3/20/17

A smile.

Is it not a
universal symbol,
a sign –
how powerful
can be the
turning up the
corners of your mouth?

Try it.

Yes, you feel
the change,
the shift,
in your body,
your thoughts –
even when you
physically “make”
yourself smile.

And when you
walk amongst others –
do you not
have an awareness,
a detector that
looks for a smile –
do you smile first
or do you wait
for the “go-ahead”
when another
smiles at you?

But can you
not smile
even when others
are not around –
do not pleasant memories,
or funny images
that you see
cause you to smile –
do you not feel
the lift in
your spirit
as your face
lights up
and moves
into a smile?

Do you not signal
to others,
with the openness
of a smile –
is not a smile
a way to beam
the Love from
your heart –
is it not simply
Love for all
to see?

Is not a smile
an expression
of unconditional Love –
such as when you
smile at a baby,
or at a beloved pet –
do you not smile
when you feel
Love in your heart?

There is power
in the expression:
“when you smile,
the whole world
smiles with you.”

Smiles are contagious –
it is the Love
that all do seek –
can you be the
first to smile
wherever you
may be?

Does not a smile
go beyond –
“I see You,”
is not a smile
a moment,
a glimpse,
a ray
of Love?

Be a beacon of Love.
Be a beacon of Light.
Open up your heart
and feel it
when you smile.

Look in the mirror,
see You smiling
back at you –
yes, you feel the change,
there is a shift
in your body,
your thoughts,
as you beam the Love
from your heart
to You.

Share Love.
Share a smile.
You cannot help
but smile
in the presence
of Love.

Be the Love
that helps you
break into a smile.

A Space for Love

img_4788

3/06/17

What constitutes
a sacred space –
is it not intention,
a moving to,
an opening up
and embracing Love?

Is a sacred space
not opening a door,
to let Love pour in –
as you are ready
to receive?

But as a sacred space
is not a one-way flow –
is it not setting
the intention
to open your heart,
to let Love flow out –
as you are ready
and willing
to give?

Is not a sacred space
a reverence for
God, Source, Divine –
is it not a meeting ground
to express and Be
the Love That You Are –
an Expression of
All That Is?

A sacred space
need not be
a particular place
at a certain time –
it may be a space
of many
or a space of one –
is there not
a sacred space
that dwells within
all of You?

What constitutes
a sacred space –
is it not a place
with no walls,
nothing to impede
the Flow of Love –
is it not a space
where Love is given
and received
with no strings attached –
can you not be
in this sacred space
when you open up
your heart?

Is not a sacred space,
where the
Love That You Are
connects with
All That Is –
can you not
be anything but
a sacred space?

Are You not
a sacred space
for Love?

A sacred space
is where Divine Love flows.
Can you hold sacred
this Space for Love?

Express Love.
Be Love.
Behold the
Sacred Space
of Love.

Remember Love

20170203-xpicture

Who doesn’t want,
need,
desire,
to be loved?

And are there
not many ways
and manipulations
that you may
go through
in order to
receive the love
you wish to attract?

And does this
form of love
that is desired
not come from
a place of lack –
of something missing?

And as we remind
you of the
Love That You Are –
that You Are
so very Loved
at all times,
as You Are Love –
are there not
times when you may feel
less than loving
whilst living in this
world of duality?

Do you not sometimes
want,
need,
desire,
to “make” another
more loving,
more caring,
more compassionate?

But as your soul’s purpose
here on earth
is to Love
and to Be
the Love That You Are –
can you turn up
your light
to be a beacon of Light,
of Love,
of Hope –
standing up in the darkness
so that others may see –
this is what Love
looks like.

Be fierce with this Love
by leading the charge,
to shine light on the darkness –
and how best to shine?
Be the Light That You Are.
Be the Love That You Are.

You need not defend
the Truth of Love –
as there is no opposite
to Love.

Be That Which You Are.
Let Love guide
each action you take.
Be the voice.
Be the action.
Be the model
for Love.

Be a reminder to all
that Love resides
in Every One of You.

May the Love That You Are
remind another
that they are
so very loved.

Be loving.
Be caring.
Be compassionate.

Be a Reminder of Love
and remember
Who You Are.
Love.
